Is there any interest in creating a trade in RPG facility for members on this site?

I've got several surplus games, which I keep in good condition but remain on the shelf indefinitely. Some other gamers would appreciate them more than I do. I could trade them on eBay/amazon of course, but sometimes might just like to trade them directly. This is especially the case when they live in NZ, like me, as its quite isolated and there aren't that many well stocked rpg specialists around!

Anyway, just a thought.

I have a lot of experience trading/selling in various rpg/hobby groups. It might be cool to have that option here.

Perhaps a stickied thread? Lists of haves/wants and geographic location?

I've got a boxed up MongTrav 2e core book and GM screen that I've been delaying putting on eBay....

Yep, that'd do it. People could simply list the items they want to sell or swap (maybe with space for a blurb or condition), and also ones they want to get hold of, possibly. If it's stickied, or placed in a prominent way then people could review it frequently enough.

Thanks! I've got a long haul flight to negotiate over the weekend, but when I get home, I'll be putting up a nice list for the New Year!

I'll get some stuff posted up this weekend. In the meantime, though I'm sure we all here are adults and dont need to be told, experience tells me that we should make it clear that any transactions here are going to solely be the responsibility of individuals, and me and Endless can't be responsible for moderating any deals or unsatisfied customers. As far as "best practices" go, I'd suggest using Paypal with its buyer protection policies intact if any money is going to exchange hands.

I'd be interested. I have a few games I don't really want or need anymore. I traded via another forum in the past and got some good stuff in exchange for what I considered crap! Some stuff I'd probably even give away if someone wants to pay the postage, or it'll end up at Goodwill most likely.

I'll post some stuff once I get it organized (im in the process of photographing a whole bunch of new miniatures and stuff I'm going to list for sale in the coming week), for now anyone can view my Trade/Sale album here:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/tristramevans/albums/72157676953653582

And my numerous want lists, divided into "High Priority" (mostly OOP miniatures), Books (including RPGs, Wargames, and Graphic novels), and Online Stores (meaning stuff I can purchase but have not as yet):

OK all, this is my New Years clean out list to trade:

RuneQuest 6 - In a slipcase (collectors) + Mythic Britain + Luther Arkwright
Eclipse Phase - 1st Edition Hardback
Unknown Armies 3rd Edition Box (Books 1, 2, 3 and a wrap-a-round screen)
2300AD (Mongoose 1st Edition Traveller Hardback)
Judge Dredd (Mongoose 1st Edition Traveller Hardback)
Elric of Melniboné (2nd Edition for Mongoose RuneQuest II)
Maelstrom Storytelling (1997)

All are in Good or Very Good condition, and in most cases would be good enough to buy as new. I'll put them on eBay over the next day or so, and may add some others. The best way to trade will be on there along with PayPal. If anybody is mad keen on getting hold of these before then, drop me a PM. You'll probably get some real deals, as it stands.

I know I've got some of those 15mm Khurasan Vespulids stashed in my garage. (And some "Pelagic Dominate" minis, and "Mekanoid War Robots", and "Terran Federal Army" guys). I'd practically give them away since I'm unlikely to ever use them.

I'd definitely be interested, how about I contact you on payday next week?

Sure, send me a "conversation".

I can dig through my garage this weekend and figure out what I've got. Take some photos.

I looked through my bookshelves and found a small pile of Rpgs to trade away, and ironically, it's all Scifi:

Mongoose Traveller 2e Core book + GM screen (VG/NM condition)
Mongoose Traveller 1e core book (Fair condition; lots of shelfwear, but the interior's fine)
GDW's 2300AD boxed set (shelfwear to the box, but the contents are in great shape)
Holistic Design's Fading Suns 2E (VG condition)
D101 Games' River of Heaven (NM condition, 'standard' hardcover) + the Reunion adventure
Renegade Legion: Legionnaire (Fair condition)

I live in Seattle and would ship to anywhere in the continental US (and maybe Canada). My tastes in Rpgs veer towards Scifi and Horror (mainly, Call of Cthulhu), but I own a lot of CoC material so don't have a lot of wants, currently.

I really need to get my stuff on eBay - I've ended up a lot busier this week than I expected. This weekend though!

I have some Hollow Earth Expedition books taking up valuable shelf space if anyone is interested. They are all in "like new" condition or even "new" as I got them as a gift from a misguided person who thought they were up my alley. I read a good deal of the rulebook and decided it's not for me. I also have the sourcebooks for their hollow earth stuff and 1930s surface world stuff as well as an unopened referee screen pack. I know I'll never use these so if anybody would like them, drop me a line; otherwise they will probably go to the local Goodwill.

I tried to figure out how to message you but I failed. I clicked on your name and avatar but didn't see a personal message button.

Howdy, y'all. I'm uploading some photos of various DnD and other gaming products I inherited and need to offload. Feel free to DM me for details. I'm moving in just about two weeks, so any arrangements need to be made ASAP. Regarding the boxed sets, I can inventory on request, but I'm not the original owner, so I can't verify they have everything.

There's a fair amount of stuff, so I've uploaded pictures of the stuff to this gDrive folder:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1oTDDmhSNZMeW3aM7-30-pcagEdydSsBa?usp=sharing

I've also got a decent chunk of SR 5th edition if anyone would be interested in that.

I've been running sooo slow on getting things online as my work has gone into overdrive, although curiously I've sold a couple of items (Maelstrom and Judge Dredd) just to people I know anyway. I'll also do a PM to the guy here that suggested an offer for one of the items above, tomorrow, if I get round to it, to see if he would still like it.

I'm not in any rush with anything as it stands, so I might just keep posting stuff here as I feel like it and do a bigger push later on in the year. If people are keen on anything, just PM me.

Last night I cleaned out my office, and spent the afternoon taking pictures. I just started listing miniatures on Facebook Groups and suddenly just got swamped with messages, I think 27 people in the first minute. As luck would have it, two of the people were from my city, so I invited them over to take a look at my stuff. We had some good conversation, some nostalgia, and they ended up giving me $700 for a few of my mini collections. Then one of the items they passed on I offered to the next in line to send me a message on FB, and they ended up paypalling me $200. So $$900 for the first night :smile: Not bad.*

I don't have much in the way of RPGs I'm selling now, really siphoned my collection down over the last few years and most of what I have now is either nostalgia value or the few games I really love. But the One Ring, as beautiful as the books are, ended up being too crunchy for me or my group's tastes, so I think I'll be selling those. Maybe DR Who - love the game, but the system is close enough to Phaserip in what it does that I'd probably just use Phaserip.

Quite a few wargames for sale though, if anyone here is interested. And the comic collection is the next I'm going through, got some classics that I'd prefer to have in trade these days.


* I immediately turned around and bought a new in box Mego Spider-man

OK, so The ONE RING. Gorgeous books, really well designed system. But it doesn't look like my group is going to play, and I don't have the shelf space for anything extra, nor do I need the irresistible temptation to fill out the line.

I've got the Original slip case set "Adventures in the Wild" with dice, The Adventurer's Companion, and the Rivendell Supplement, all like-new. Looking for around $75 usd including shipping to North America.

I love the MSH advanced set.
Yeah, getting that box again was one of my main reasons for picking it up. I have the books bound in a hardcover, and I have them loose, but I wanted the original box for my shelf

@TristramEvans you live in Canada too, right?

How much are you selling the:
  • Link Wind Waker toy
  • Skaven source book (1990s one)?
