Games Free To A Good Home

Post by billbrown1959 » Wed Oct 05, 2016 7:16 am

Hi All,

I am currently in the process of moving house and have a lot of games that I can't take with me.
They are mainly "vintage" Avalon Hill games eg Panzer Leader, Dune, France 1940, Brittania, Civilization, Kingmaker etc, with a few from other companies eg British Rails, Rail Baron, Shanghai Trader, Successors, Warlords.
They are all used (some very used) and are mainly original copies from the 1980s/1990s.

If if there is a chance that anyone is interested, I would be happy to hand these over to a new owner. Please contact me if you are interested and/or would like more info.

Cheers
Bill Brown

This copy of Dune is complete, 1979 vintage, and is used as I said (I remember many late night sessions back in the 80s!).

British Rails 1984 - I haven't looked at this copy for probably at least 20 years, and it is in remarkably good shape. A little bit of damage on a couple of cards where the elastic band has perished - yes, it is that old. Used, complete, and even had the original crayons (though I couldn't vouch for their ability to still be used). The board is very clean - probably because I lived up to the instructions - ALWAYS CLEAN THE BOARD IMMEDIATELY AFTER PLAY!

I'm receiving these from Bill on Friday. I'll have a look and maybe even a play of the titles and then redistribute those that aren't to my tastes to those who have expressed interest here.
