Don't throw them away. Sell them cheap so as to deny GW a couple sales.

Rating games a "1" isn't proving anything - all it does is muck up what is otherwise a somewhat useful database. To me it smacks of someone stamping their foot in anger. It might feel cathartic (briefly) but it's not going to solve anything.

Plus you wasted games that someone else might have enjoyed.

Yup, I'll happily take a copy of BloodBowl, may as well not even be a GW game for the amount of support they give it.


I'm calling a Full Of Shit foul on this play.
No one throws out Talisman 2nd edition.

Did you make sure to include any Fantasy Flight games that they licensed from GW? I know you mean well, but you throwing away your games doesn't deny them the money they've already gotten from it.

I think everyone at BGG will agree that while GW products (except anything Finecast) are pretty fantastic, their pricing policies and general poor attitude toward their customers (Treating us like dumb cash cows) are driving more people away from their products, than attracting them.

While I'm not about to ditch my currently owned games, I buy NOTHING direct from GW anymore, and will only buy Finecast if I can inspect it first.

I did something similar a few years ago. Except I wasn't trying to make a point.

I found Rogue Trader marines, squats, eldar, epic stuff, Blood Bowl, Dark Future, Man o' War, and Adeptus Titanicus in the loft. 'Won't be needing this', I thought to myself, and I chucked the lot.

This was long before I discovered BGG or how well regarded/fun/expensive the things are/were.

There's not a day goes past when I don't think

@OP. Rating games a 1 in anger does no harm to GW, what it does is make a mockery of BGG. You are insulting BGG and by association everyone that uses the database.
