Moving to Switzerland...Boardgame sale!

A former member
Post #: 8
Hi everyone,

I'm moving to Switzerland in January and I am thus forced to drastically downsize my possessions. So I'm selling almost all of my games -- 18 in total. I like the idea of selling them locally so that no one has to deal with shipping costs and so that it feels more personal.

If you are interested in buying a game, e-mail me at:

I will sell them on a first-come-first-served basis and will update this posting periodically to mark the games that have been sold.

If you buy a game or games:
- We can either arrange a convenient time for you to pick them up from my apartment. (I live near the UTC mall.)
- Or I can bring them to one of the upcoming meetups.

The prices are pretty firm, but I'd be open to other offers, especially if you'd like to buy multiple games.

As for trades...I'm open to the idea but I'm probably going to be pretty picky since anything I keep I will have to ship to Switzerland! My primary gaming partner is my girlfriend, so I'll certainly have a preference for games that are good with two.

All the games are in extremely good condition and all pieces and components are accounted for. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here or via e-mail.


The Bridges of Shangri-La, $10
Underrated game, and an original mechanic. This is actually a challenging, 30 minute two player game as well. We would simply remove the top three villages from the game and play as usual. It was always close and always tense.

Bohnanza, $10
A classic. I'm not really into the bartering thing as much I thought I would be. However, the two player version doesn't incorporate bartering and so we actually liked it more, unusually, as a 2 player game.

Telestrations, $15
So much fun!

Torres, $20
Torres is not only an interesting brain burner with lots of replayability, it also looks cool.
Rio Grande first edition (1999).

Scrabble, $10
"Vintage Collection" -­
The instruction booklet is a little torn.

Stratego, $15
"Vintage Collection" -­

Perfect Timing, $10
Surprisingly fun. Always brings lots of laughs. Two of the timers have dead batteries, but we were still able to play the game even with 4. Definitely worth $10.

Gloria Mundi, $8
You and the other affluent Romans are trying to escape from the invading Goth armies. The first one to cross southern Italy and the Mediterranean and reach Carthage wins!
Some helpful printed crib sheets are included to make learning the game easier.

Scattergories, $10

Tsuro (The Game of the Path), $15
Beautiful game that can play with practically any number of people.

Balderdash, $15
Still in shrink wrap

Dirty Minds, $8
Oh, behave.

Trivial Pursuit '90s Time Capsule Edition, $8
Metal box version
The metal box is a little dented.

Ave Caesar, $20
Racing game with a two sided board. It can get pretty cut throat once you start trying to block others. It's best with more people, but we enjoyed it with only two as well.

Shadows Over Camelot, $30
Cooperative game with a knights of the round table theme. It's a thoughtful mixture of trying to work together and trying to discover who is the traitor. I played it twice with 5 people and really liked it, but I think it would be even more suspenseful with 6 or 7.

Double 15 Dominoes (136 professional tiles) + Domino turn table (used in Mexican Train and ChickenFoot) + 8 miniature trains for Mexican Train
The best dominoes set and in a beautiful case. These are nice, heavy weighted dominoes.

Burrows, $10
A multiplayer puzzle game that has much more strategy than it first appears to have. Cut throat fun.

Ubongo Extrem, $12
German travel version (about a 6'' box) using hexagonal tiles. 1-4 players. Instructions are in German but you can download translations on BGG.

Wow! The interest in the games has exceeded my expectation. Thank you to all who have helped make my packing for the big move so much easier. wink

There are only 4 games left! I'm open to counter offers for these last few games, so this would be a great time to try to make a deal.
