Do you know of any Canadian Auctions or other opportunities for a new gaming family to pick up some games for lower cost (used)? We're just starting off and have a few games but would like to get some more - the cost is a bit prohibitive though. We have a large family so it's hard to put down a lot of money on games but we're hooked on boardgames - or trying to anyway. I see this as important for our kids to get into boardgames as a family.

I did get a few games at the Thrift shop but nothing of note. I see a few auctions on BGG but a lot of them are U.S. only and for those that aren't they warn of the high shipping costs. So I was just wondering if there is something more reasonable out there for us Canadians? I'm just learning my way around the site so may just not have stumbled across them yet.

Reading your recent posts has been like dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

Hi John,

I recommend subscribing to the Geeklist for Canadian auctions. You will get a notification at the top of the page, similar to Geekmail, when there is an update or new addition.

Cheers,
Darryl

Hi John
If you want to play any games let me know and maybe we could meet at either All A-Board Games or High Octane Comics.

Thanks Clive. I think I might like that - it's crazy busy right now but maybe in the new year I can join you for a game.

I'm real green though. My oldest son taught me a couple of games he owns - Settlers of Catan and Bohnanza. At home we have Forbidden Island and Sabotage....that's about the extent of my Jedi training so far.
