I've been considering selling some old stuff to nobleknight.com. I have a few things that have crept up to a pretty good price, books that I have never once used. I'm also going to sell all my 5e stuff.
That would be how to oxidate your collection. If you want to reduce it, pop it into a vessel filled with chlorine gas.
More than about money for me, it's space. And even more than space, it's a feeling that I'm hoarding something someone else might enjoy
I've done that with books in general. I only keep books that I find beautiful and interesting to look at, or that I have a nolstalgic attachment for, or books that are useful reference material in physical form. Unfortunately, that describes many of my gaming book.I have gone over to pdf only, and periodically throw away portions of my remaining hard copy game collection. A year ago I gave away a complete set of Fading Suns books, which cleared two feet of shelf space in a single act.
The best way is to get pdfs of what you will use again, and throw away everything you will never use again.
totally agree, never ever sell a book again. still sad about selling my becmi/adnd 1e /2e 30 years ago (i was young kid, please don't spank me)You're thinking of this the wrong way. You should be Googling "DIY bookshelves".
Really quick summary of my situation. Got married, moved into a smaller house, and I no longer have room for everything I've accumulated over the many years I've been in the hobby. Or I should say hobbies because it includes not only RPG books, but also terrain, miniatures, wargame armies, board games, related supplies (paint, brushes, dice and more dice, large rolls of battlemaps, markers - you get the idea). I'm looking for suggestions about how to prioritize what stays, what gets put into attic storage, what gets sold/given away. I might have too much personal attachment to some of these items to make a good decision, and my wife is concerned I might do something rash.
First off, I'm not playing in person in the immediate future. That means everything could at least go into storage, since all my RPGs are on VTT. I do like reading physical books for inspiration from time-to-time, however. So, I don't want to put everything into the attic, and obviously don't want to sell/give away everything.
Here are some categories:
1) Board games my wife and I play together (Wingspan, HeroQuest)
2) RPGs I'm currently playing (Monster of the Week, D&D 5e, WFRP)
3) RPGs I have played somewhat recently, but don't think I'll be coming back to play - at least not for a while (PF2, Call of Cthulhu, Savage Worlds, OSE)
4) RPGs I don’t anticipate ever playing – and don’t really read for fun (Fantasy Trip, Palladium, Shadow of the Demon Lord)
5) RPGs I may never play but are at least inspiring to read from time-to-time (Forbidden Lands)
6) Full Warhammer 40K armies (haven’t played in three years, my friends have moved on to other hobbies, everything I have is also out-of-date)
7) Board Games I played once and didn’t like (or don’t see me playing again)
8) Miniatures (I love collecting and painting them, but since I’m not playing in-person, don’t really “need” them for active games); miniature painting is a pretty major hobby for me.
9) Adventure modules I’ve already used (Rime of the Frost Maiden, Tomb of Annhilation, etc.)
What do you think? Shelf? Storage? Sell?
