Maybe some of you, like me, just can't get enough strategy board gaming! If so, good news!!!
Soon you will be able to buy board games for bitcoins!
Shortly, I will be starting a bitcoin-only strategy board game business. I plan on initially only selling Minion Games http://www.miniongames.com/
, but if things go well I will expand my inventory and sources.
Price-wise, I'm aiming for 4% off retail plus $8-10 for shipping at MtGox weighted average prices. If you live in or visit the DC area, you can purchase in person and waive the shipping. I'll group orders to minimize shipping.
At the time of writing, MtGox weighted average is 5.10 USD/BTC so the estimated prices reflect this
The games in my initial offering will be specifically the following
Estimated shipping in continental US: 1.75 BTC
*ALL PRICES ESTIMATED*
- The Manhattan Project: ~9.4 BTC
- The Manhattan Project - Nations Expansion: ~1.13 BTC
- Kingdom of Solomon: ~9.4 BTC
- Venture Forth: ~9.4 BTC
- *when it comes out* Tahiti: ~6.6 BTC
Of these, I've only had the privilege of playing The Manhattan Project, and it gets solid marks from me and from several of my friends. Its monopolized the last several of our game nights.
I don't have any established buy/sell rep, but am looking to establish it. I'm willing to use escrow for the first several purchases, but ultimately I plan on it being a 'you-send-first' with the understanding that I'll fully refund in case of a problem.
I'm going to start out with no online store-front, but hope to have one up shortly after establishing there's actually demand for this stuff.
I'm still in the laying-plans stage, so this is the time to help make this service something useful or more useful for you. Throw me your ideas, tentative orders, desired stock, whatever. =)
