Latest Additions to the Collection

With some Christmas return money I was able to score these 3 new games! This post isn’t necessarily about just buying new games however, but to HOW I bought them.

#Welcome to... and #Race were just off of amazon, but I actually scored #Root for $35 (essentially brand new) off of Facebook Marketplace. I’m sure most people know of these marketplaces but may have never used them for games. If you ever find yourself with an extra $50 worth of game money burning a hole in your wallet, I would highly encourage a bit of patience and a little bit of searching on the marketplaces. The reason being, Root isn’t even my best find. 

My first goldmine was finding #Quantum (out of print) for $20. My second and largest haul was #Dominion, #King of Tokyo, #Sheriff of Nottingham, and #Cosmic Encounter and only paying $40. I’ve also found #Agricola 1st edition for only $20. Except for Agricola, all of these games have been in near perfect condition.

That all being said, if you feel like you will never win a BGA Giveaway and are wanting to save some money, while dealing with minor imperfections on your boxes, check out OfferUp and Facebook Marketplace! 

Side note: these are also great options for selling/trading games.

Ever since this post I've started visiting OfferUp once a day xD

Haha it’s so hard not to! I try not to often because then I start to do it too much... but once a day I’d good or even every other!

What a find! Maybe I should try looking things up on OfferUp every now and then haha

I go on the Facebook Marketplace sometimes but it's mostly "non-gamer" games around my area. I've seen a few good ones come up (1 or 2 posts) though that would require 30 min of drive.

Thanks! Yeah I get that. Sometimes it takes knowing what posts to look at. There sometimes will be a non gamer game on the first picture and then great games after haha 

Root was actually an hour drive but, long story short, I didn’t have to pay for gas 😂

I was able to score the Kickstarter version of Empires of the Void 2 but that’s pretty much it in my area. I’d have to drive 45+ minutes for a better selection.

Yeah it’s crazy how quick a good offer will disappear. Sometimes they come in waves though so I’ll check every few weeks 

Supporter9 months ago

I haven’t seen a good game on there in 6+ months. Sad.

Man that’s a bummer. We’re close to some major cities so I’ll see quite a bit come up. I always see #Dominion for like $15 haha

It has been mostly mis for me as well. I like to check it whenever I travel.

That’s always a good plan. I usually will scope out a place before I go to see if there’s anything worthwhile

Supporter9 months ago

I like doing that... And I'm going to the states next month.....

Supporter9 months ago

Great finds. I'm jealous. Race is so so good.

I’m definitely looking forward to race because of how much I like roll. I want to get the gathering storm expansion for the solo play

Supporter9 months ago

Hey, the gathering storm expansion is at a historical low on Amazon right now. I think it's a sign that you need to get it. 

9 months ago

Ahh I know... I want it so bad.. I have enough to get it... just slightly unsure haha 

Supporter9 months ago

Do it do it do it

Supporter9 months ago

Do it anyways. 

Spend all your money... 

9 months ago

Haha there’s a small chance I will. I still have other things I need to purchase so I’ll have to be shrewd with my leftover Christmas money haha 

Supporter9 months ago

I understand. Hope you find some other stuff you want. 

9 months ago

Haha I think I may have

Supporter9 months ago
