Selling board games for charity (1)

06 Dec

Ok, just a quick update on how this is going. Well actually!

Dominion has been sold (i threw in some sleeves and a case to carry the game cards and raised the price by EUR10) and so has Forbidden Island.

Many thanks to Fani and Harris for buying these two games and therefore helping me with not only getting rid of games i no longer need but also with raising some money for charity in the process.

I have added two more games to the below list. Carcassonne and Bohnanza. With regards to Carcassonne, I have added the base game but the buyer must also buy the two expansions (i.e. for a total of EUR25). I mean, what would i do with the expansions if i only sell the base game???!!! The expansions can still be purchased on their own.

As i mentioned, all proceeds will go to a charity. Still undecided as to which charity so if you have any ideas or recommendations please let me know.

Funds raised so far – EUR45

The games (all in english) being sold are:

(I am only looking for buyers living in Cyprus, preferably Nicosia, and the prices (which are non-negotiable) don’t include any shipping costs.)

1. Power Grid (EUR25) – Very good condition, played 2-3 times.

2. Dominion (EUR35) – box is damaged, cards in excellent condition.

3. Here I Stand (EUR40) – Like new, never been played. Cards are sleeved.

4. Forbidden Island (EUR10) – Like new.

5. Castle Ravenloft (EUR40) – Very good condition. Cards are sleeved.

6. Carcassonne: Inns & Cathedrals (EUR5) – Very good condition (expansion)

7. Carcassonne: Traders & Builders (EUR5) – Very good condition (expansion)

8. Carcassonne (base game) (EUR15) – Good condition. This can only be purchased together with the above two expansions.

9. Bonhanza (EUR15) – Like new.

    Great execution of a good idea …

    There is a woman that is supporting her two unemployed children (one of which is facing deportation by the end of the month) as well as her unemployed husband who lives abroad. She earns EUR 400 a month for working 8 hours a day, 6-7 days a week.

    It’s not much unfortunately.

    And it seems that things will get worse before they get any better again……

    Was merely suggesting her as a possible recipient …
