Recent Deals in the GeekGold Auctions - Newest on top
- Gary C(ghcstr)United States
As I watch the auctions, I have noticed quite a few good deals on games being sold for GeekGold. After compiling some data, I thought I would put together a list demonstrating some of the great prices people have been getting on the games via the GG auction site.
This list is a compilation of games only which have been successfully auctioned since September 15th. If there is an interest in continuing the list, I will keep adding statistics as I am able. I am not tracking VCR games, PC games, books, etc which may be offered for auction.
Each entry on the list will compare the cost in GeekGold as well as the current lowest price of the same game in the BGG Marketplace for comparison. As I am able I will add the MSRP as well as the going price for the same game with a major online vendor so you can see what types of deals one can get if the right game becomes available at the right time. I also will list the approximate price the GG would cost you for the game if you bought it at an exchange rate of 8 GG per $1 USD.
The following format will be used:
- 80 (11 bids)
cost of - $10.00
Marketplace - $15.00 (Good condition)
MSRP - $29.99
WWW vendor - $21.00 (obviously a new copy)
For those of you who may not be familiar with what I am talking about, go to this link to see what games (and other stuff) are currently available cash-free in the auctions (not including shipping fees of course). http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekauction.php3
Virtual etherfunds, you have to love the concept of money that is worth less than real money yet trades for significantly higher than nothingness.
Also, bear in mind that these are all past auctions and are not indicative of what you may stumble across in the future. Also, the GG:$ rate varies, but I am just using a 8:1 ratio for simplicity of this list.
There is a companion to this list concentrating on those auctions which received no winning bids at: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24880
Edit: I have added shipping costs to the listings to give a better picture of one's true cost. Also, the most recently ended auctions are located at the top of the list.
