Hi Guys,
I need to shift a lot of my collection in a short time, as such everything (nearly) on my "Owned" list is up for sell, Many are still mint and sealed (especially the newer stuff), 99% are in excellent condition with all pieces.
I do not have time to check for individual items in a game (ie. does it have exactly 457 counters in Ninja Turbo Assasins 4), but will give brief descriptions about the quality of the item if you are concidering buying a lot.

Also I have to sell items in large quantities only, sorry no individual games, I'm talking £500 bids each minimum please.
Also buyer will have to collect (especially if your bidding £500 for 15 games) from Bristol UK!

Paul

Alas, I don't have £500 to spare! You may want to try a local games/comics shop?

Just a heads up. Where this has cropped up here in the past, a bulk sale has necessitated a significant bulk discount. I'm not sure if your '£500 for 15 games' was just a bunch of generalised numbers but I don't think you should reasonably expect over £30 a game for this sort of transaction, even if you cherry pick the cream of your collection.

If you need the cash fast then I'm afraid your expectations need to be lowered quite a bit and expect the first offers to target the premium games on the list. Once those items are gone, £5 a copy for the Monopoly variants (et al) should be considered a very good deal if indeed you can find any interest at all. Your market is reduced considerably by requiring personal pick up.

And I'm amazed no one has chimed in yet about BGG's 3% commission for trying to sell here.

All in not what you probably wanted to hear but you only have to go to any UK games con to appreciate how low the 'sold' prices are on the second hand games stands (as opposed to the initial asking prices).

Tempting, do you have prices in mind or just considering offers?

I'll have a look through and see if I can find enough games to make it worthwhile.

I sent the OP a question last Wednesday about a bulk buy. No reply so far...
