The greatest tragedy of our hobby is that there are only so many hours in the week to play games. Our sweet board game collections often outstrip the time we have to make use of them and so, like most of us, you probably have a few games that sit around languishing on your shelf. But worry not, those unloved games can now be converted into new (gently used), more lovable games!
Some of the industrious volunteers here at WashingCon have arranged a virtual flea market on Board Game Geek whereby you can put your old games up for swap or sale. By signing up on BGG.com you can decide which way you would like your games to be put up for exchange (sale, auction or trade). Then, after another participant arranges to trade for or purchase your game, you can make the exchange at WashingCon in September. You have nothing to lose (except games you no longer want) and everything to gain (specifically new and better games)! You’ll need to complete these deals ahead of time though, so sign up ASAP!
Please note though, WashingCon cannot enforce these trades. These are deals between you and the other good people attending the convention and you will have to hash out the detail between yourselves on the BGG forums. If a trade does not live up to your expectations we cannot fix it for you. We are very excited to provide an easy place where people can trade their games for new ones but we do not have the resources to police these exchanges - they rely on the BGG market and the goodwill of both parties to be completed satisfactorily.
Good luck and happy trading!
