Used Board Games…Maybe? Need Your Thoughts!

We’ve been kicking around the notion of offering used board games, as well as taking them for trade-in. There’s some good reasons to do so: Nowhere else in Knoxville does it, it provides a way for customers to trade out of old games that they’re not interested in anymore and get into something newer and exciting, and it provides a way for customers looking to buy a game to perhaps get one of the larger, more costly ones at a price that they can live with. (I’m looking at you, Descent, World of Warcraft and Twilight Imperium!)

There’s some real issues with doing it too, though – where the heck am I going to store those things? Do I have the time to do the count-through of the pieces necessary to ensure that customers get everything they buy? I’ve drawn up a draft policy for doing this, but I want your feedback – come visit our forum on KnoxGamers and take a look at the policy. After you look at it, please post! Your ideas might be the deciding factor on if we decide to do this or not!



  1. Could you have a games wanted list and a games for sale list? You could act as the broker.

  2. Offering trade-ins on boardgames sounds like a great idea, especially if you can get store credit to hold you over for a while. I know I’d liek to get rid of my copy of Descent to put towards Chaos in the Old World…
