Condition Descriptions

We sell new and gently used games. To keep your expectations in line with our conditions, we developed this handy guide to tell you what we're thinking when we grade a game.

Please note, we do not guarantee shrink wrap against tears.

New (Mint/SW) - Still in the original factory shrink wrap.

New (Ding/Dent) - a new copy that came with a ding or dent from the distributor or manufacturer. If you have questions or concerns about buying a dinged copy, please contact us; we'll be happy to send additional pictures and describe the damage in detail.

Used (Near Mint) -  Like new with only the slightest wear, many times indistinguishable from a Mint item. Close to perfect, very collectible. Board games in this condition may have been played but show little to no wear.

Used (Very Good) - May have small creases, scuff marks, etc. Complete and very useable.

Used (Good) - May have medium sized creases, scuff marks, very small stain, etc. Complete and useable.

Used (Acceptable) - A very well used game, but complete and useable. May have serious flaws such as tears, pen marks or highlighting, large creases, stains, marks, a loose pages, etc. We don't normally carry these types of games, but for out-of-print games, we might make an exception.

 No matter what the condition, if you have questions, please contact us!
