For sale or trade

23 November 2008 15 November 2015

Due to limited space at home for our game collection, and also because my children have grown past the intended age of some of the games below, I’d like to sell or trade the following games. If you're interested, please contact me.

Unless otherwise noted, all games are in excellent condition, are language-independent, i.e. the playing material does not contain any printed text, and have rules in English. The images are taken from BoardGameGeek.

Traders & Builders

box cover This is one of the highest rated expansions for Carcassonne, a popular and multi-award winning tile-laying game. The expansion includes 24 tiles, 6 pigs, 6 builders, 20 trade good tokens and a linen bag for tiles.

My copy is in new condition, unplayed, because after opening the box I realised this edition has new tile artwork that is aesthetically incompatible with my original edition of Carcassonne.

You need the new 2014 Carcassonne edition for this expansion, unless you don't mind having mixed artwork.

Risk

Risk 2004 edition cover The well-known game of world conquest for 3 to 6 players, published by Parker Brothers. I have the 2004 edition, which includes rule variants for 2 players and for 2 teams, and the cards to play the mission variant, in which each player has different objectives. The mission cards explain each mission’s goals and hence this variant is language dependent.

Scotland Yard

Scotland Yard coverThe 1983 winner of Germany's Game of the Year award is a chase across all London, using its public transportation system. One player, the secret agent,  is chased by the other 2-5 players, the detectives. The problem is: in each turn the agent's transportation mode is known, but the start and end stops aren't! The box has quite some wear, but the components inside are in good condition. Rule booklet in English, German, French, Italian and Dutch.

Little Sparrow

Little Sparrow A simple and short game for 2 to 4 young children by Heinz Meister and published by Haba. Both the game designer and the publisher specialise in board games for young children, packaged in bright yellow boxes and with good production values. No counting or reading skills are required for this game, in which colourful wooden pieces depict birds, their nests and the worms they will collect during the game. Rules in English, French, German and Dutch.

Teddy Tim

Teddy Tim box and contents A collection of four games for 2 to 6 young children, designed by Heinz Meister and published by Haba. Only one of the games requires the ability to count. The rule booklet is in English, French, German and Dutch.

One piece is missing, which means a couple of games require some slight adaptation, like collecting 4 instead of 5 bears.

Operation

Operation box and content A dexterity game requiring a steady hand, for 2 to 4 players, published by Milton-Bradley. The edition I have is similar to the one in the picture but with an additional piece to extract from the patient’s brain. Batteries not included.
