Buy A Game

All prices quoted in the games for sale section are inclusive of free postage and packing to any mainland UK address - but you can also choose to collect games in person if you prefer, in which case I will happily discount the cost of postage from the price for you.

All games that I sell are guaranteed to be 100% complete and with the original components, unless clearly stated otherwise. Games are meticulously checked prior to being sold and all the components are neatly sorted out and bagged up for your convenience.

Please bear in mind that I also have many games that I haven't got around to listing on the website, so it's always worth asking me, just in case I can help you.

Collect in Person

If you live nearby, you may prefer to collect games in person, rather than have me post it to you.

By doing this you will save money on postage (I'll discount the cost of postage from the quoted price) and you will have the opportunity to inspect your games before buying them.

I am conveniently located in the middle of the country, just north of Worcester city centre, about 2 miles from Junction 6 of the M5 - so even if you don't live locally, you will probably be driving up or down the M5 one day en route to somewhere else - or you will have a friend or family member who is passing my way who can pick it up for you.

Payment Methods

If I am posting it to you, I can only accept payment by bank transfer, cheque or postal order. Unfortunately, I don't take credit card payments or PayPal, since this is not without risk for sellers. Payments can be reversed up to 6 months after the original transaction! If you are in a hurry to receive your game, please see the clearance times below for the various payment methods.

If you are picking up in person, payment will be cash upon collection.

Payment Clearance Times

Bank transfers are instant, but I still need to allow 2 full working days before I can post your game, as transfers can be rejected for various reasons.

Cheques will take 6 full working days to clear before I can post your game. Please note that although funds become available to draw against after only 4 working days, it takes 6 full working days before a cheque is guaranteed to not be returned. This is the standard banking industry 2-4-6 cheque clearance cycle.

A crossed postal order has to be paid into a bank account exactly the same as a cheque and also takes 6 full working days to clear.

An uncrossed postal order is much faster, as it can be cashed instantly at a Post Office rather than having to be paid into a bank account, and therefore I can post your game the same day I receive it. An uncrossed postal order will probably work out to be as fast as a bank transfer overall (as a transfer still needs a couple of days to "clear", whilst the postal order will probably take a couple of days to reach me in the mail).

Condition Descriptions

Please note that all the board games are collectables, in used condition. All games will show varying signs of wear and tear, as you would expect, bearing in mind their age and the fact that they are made of cardboard and have been played with by children. Most games usually have one or more box corners secured with Sellotape (it is very hard to find games with unbroken corners of the box lid or base).

I will describe the exact condition of each game as clearly and accurately as possible if you contact me for further information. All games are guaranteed to be 100% complete and with original components, unless stated otherwise.
