Have you seen me?
When I was much younger, I started out playing a ton of card and dice games. My parents liked games and taught me quite a few of them very early, starting with Cribbage and Rummy.
In high school and college, I played a lot of AD&D and WFRP. During that time we got into quite a few Games Workshop board games. Then jobs and busy life got in the way.
I hadn't played any new games until around 1999. Then a visit with my old friend Matt in California introduced me to the world of hobby board games that had developed. I was hooked. I got back into the hobby with a vengeance. I bought way too many games. Then traded them like crazy, tried out a ton of them.
And then I got very busy again. My company weathered the recession stronger than ever. Then I married my wife Sarah, had two children, moved to a house in the 'burbs, livin' the dream.
And now my son Henry is 3 years old, and asks to play games all the time. Literally every night. It's a dream come true. And my 1 year old daughter Katie watches with great interest.
So now I am re-tooling my collection, and in the process trying to pair it down significantly.
I have a play copy of Heroscape - and it does get played. I am hoping to acquire a majority of different terrains, figures, and army cards that were released before it went out of print. I am not a stickler for condition, don't care about blisters, and won't pay a ton of money for the stuff - but I will trade big for it. If you have stuff that collectors would find unacceptable, likely I would trade for it.
I am happy to trade at a loss if I can fill a specific goal. So feel free to offer unbalanced trades, I may go for it. Or I may counter-offer. Or not. It is more likely to work with a quantity of cheaper games. I won't trade a rare valuable game away at much of a loss, but I will trade a lot of cheaper games away in a many for few scenario.
Buyer pays shipping.
I'll combine shipping if I can.
NOTE TO SELF:
Any OWNED game that is also marked PREVIOUSLY OWNED is for filtering purposes. It means that the game makes little sense to trade individually, or at all - and can't really count when evaluating the volume of the collection. For example, Bridge, Hearts, and Spades are marked, so when I am searching for a game to play in my collection, they appear as options - but are also marked previously owned so I can filter them out, as there is nothing there to trade or sell. Similarly, I have fully and permanently integrated my LotR F&F and Sauron expansions, played like crazy, all in one box, never to be sold separately again, so they are marked as such so they can fall out of my filter.
