First of all, this fucking sucks and I'm sorry.

There are some people around here who sell a lot of games so I hope they'll poke in and give you some good advice.

I'm very sorry to hear that.

eBay will probably get you the most money, but they also take a bigger cut.
BGG Auctions can be really hit or miss, since you never know who will see it. Posting in the BGG Marketplace is more reliable monetarily, but it will probably take longer to sell. They take a very modest cut.
Craig's List can work if you don't feel like shipping anything, but everyone on there is looking to get the best deal possible.

Another option is selling on Facebook. You get a lot of eyeballs and no fees. There are several FB groups dedicated to just selling games.

A hybrid approach may also work - sell the big rare stuff on Ebay, the common stuff on FB.

Sorry to hear of your legal hassles.

Never sold on Craiglist, but everything I hear is that its a ton of noise, lots of haggling, etc I'd avoid.

I'm so sorry to hear about that Jay. All the best in the court case.

That sucks Jay, sorry.

I think a BGG auction would be the way to go. The community often comes together to help members in need, more so than eBay, so an auction for “save my business” might get people to dig deep.

Thanks for all the kind words and advice, y'all. I think I'm leaning towards a BGG auction. Seems like the best option for quick sales at close to secondary market value. Facebook seems good as well, but I've never had an account and I'm not hopping on board now. I'll let you know when it goes up. Cheers!

We really need a thread titled THAT DAMN BARNES where we discuss games we bought because Barnes wrote about them or unloaded them.

ha, he almost got me on anachrony but I managed to wrest myself away. Then I almost immediately had to buy a new dishwasher so I was glad I held back.

One time I kind of regretted a trade just based on timing and 'value.'

I had a pile of Descent 1e stuff, basically everything but Road to Legend. I traded it to a friend for his dayglo original Nexus Ops.

Then FFG announced Descent 2e and a reprinting of Nexus Ops. I lost money, but I still probably came out ahead on actual time played with Nexus Ops.
