What is this list?

This is a place to post games you have spotted on Craigslist that you are NOT picking up. If you do pick them up, report them to the weekly list maintained by the Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters.


How does it work?

Add an item with the game you spotted on Craigslist - it does not have to be local to you.

Be sure to include:

- a link to the listing
- area and town (if provided) that the game is located in
- the listed price, if any
- when the item was posted

If you go and pick up a game (or go and find that the game is beyond rescue), please post a comment for the item.

Don't forget to thumb the spotters and/or tip them if they lead you to local treasure!


Search Tips:

In google, search like so:
site:craigslist.org star wars queens gambit
or site:craigslist.org acquire

Add "2017" to pull up more recent listings. Feldaan suggests adding "boardgamegeek" as games highly reviewed here will sometimes be linked to the info page. Also, including a specific date (in the format 2017-01-22) can locate brand new listings.

I can't believe nobody has posted in this list at all this year. This one is just out of my "willing to drive" range so I figured I would post it. Some decent deals.

Middletown CT. Looks like an FLGS going out of business maybe?

There are 5 pictures in the post, each showing bunches of games and many are NIS, for $2500 or best offer. Too rich for my blood but interesting to see.
