I know a lot of you must deal with this so here goes...

What do you do with all your extras?  I'm starting to accumulate a bunch of extra hardcovers.  The ones I have are common ones or aren't in great shape.  I won't tell you how many times I've had to relist or mark down a FF just to get it out of my house...

I'm thinking of making up a package set with the Main 3 hardcovers, a screen, some dice and some figs...maybe a module...list it as and everything you need to play kind of thing.

What do you all do with your extras/not very marketable stuff?

I bring these heavy that no one wants to ship items to the used bookstore or a gaming store that will try and resell them.

I do this as well :)


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

Last summer I dropped off 100 Dragon magazines and about 30 D20 books to KW Used Books.  They buy the Dragons for $1 each and the hardcovers for $5 cash, $7 credit, modules $2 or $3, etc  I bought the D20 books for $1 each so it worked out well just to move them out.

Wow.  That's really quite good, I'll have to check them out.  (It remains to be seen if I'll be a net buyer or seller, though.)

Man, if I thought someone out in eBay-land would give me $1 apiece for my Dragons (and pay to ship the damn things, of course), I'd stop throwing them away ... :)

Their general principle is that they will give half the price they sell it for in store credit or one third in cash.  I got a mixture of stuff last time: some books, $100 in store credit and $200 in cash but I had to pick up the cash in two installments on Saturdays.
