You all may already know about this tool, but I just found out about it today. Someone has created a tool that will tell you the value of your game collection. The link is in the first post of this thread.

When you run the tool, it takes a couple of minutes to the results, possibly longer if you have a huge collection.

At any rate, the BGG value of mine is $3,394.16. This is either enlightening or depressing information, depending on how you want to look at it.

How the heck is tic tac toe $57?

And where the hell can you buy a crokinole board for $25?

My collection has 44 unknowns and comes to $10,751.

But it radically misfigures anything collectible, assigning a value whether you own 1 or 500 miniatures.

Also, many games with single entries but multiple 'decks' or such are misfigured.

I dont have very many 'new' games and most of them didnt qualify.

But my carcassonne comes up at $25 but in Australia there is no way you would get a used Carc for that!!

but then the value in my eyes is priceless

Sorry Trace, but that ain't so. The last second-hand copy on eBay Australia went for $20. You can get a new one shipped to you from Ozgameshop for $32.

7,314.60 bucks. Consider everything's sleeved, so I'd say add a 30%. UGH.

Don't tell my husband. Don't tell Julia. Don't tell anyone, and especially don't tell the little goblin pushing sometimes the button "buy" when shopping for games on-line. whistle

(I'm still a.f.k. until next Monday, when I'll be home & on-line )

Mine was $790 but even more interesting to me...

My Wishlist was ~ $850 eventually I still have a lot of buying to do. LOL


Not likely to ever have that happen.... but it was fun to note. I am obviously not buying anywhere near as many games as I want too.

I like to died when I saw those numbers! Plus, I sleeve and a few of the games have been pimped a bit. I will be in bankruptcy soon, I expect!

Like everyone else, I consider my collection priceless

$5000 or so with some serious underestimation on my MTG & D&D miniature collections.
A lot of my games are thrifted so didn't pay anywhere near that figure. In fact overall I think my collection is cost neutral (not counting MTG, frisking money pit that it is).

Mine was about $1,200 which suprised me it was that much (as I don't spend that much, got only 3 games last year). then again, I've been collecting games for over ten years, and the collection I have recorded on here also includes my parents' games (as I count their collection + mine as I have access to both)

Hahahaha it says a total of over $2300.. But it also tells me that my €5 MtG starter-box is worth $90.... Some really strange prices.. and also several that I know are different around here (both cheaper and more expensive).. And of course dutch/english versions put the count off even further..

Ours should be worth $ 3,987.81, but it should be more as our Warhammer and Magic collections are fairly big.

Rule of Thumb: # games owned x $20 = good estimate of sale value

Cool! About half of our games are thrifts of varying conditions so the $$ might be lower.

BGG Data
Total Game Value (AVG): $ 787.12
Average Game Price: $ 17.49
Games with no price: 13 (Never Sold on BGG Market Place)

ThoughtHammer Data
Total Game Value: $ 34.78
Average Game Price: $ 8.70
Games with no price: 54 (Not Available on ThoughtHammer)

Total Games in Collection: 58

Estimated Value (Ceryon Method)
58 Games * Average BGG Value = 58 * $ 17.49 = $ 1,014.42
58 Games * Average TH Value = 58 * $ 8.70 = $ 504.60
