Used Game Sale

The popular TCTC Used Game Sale is back for another year! Get some new-to-you games or sell games that you no longer play.

The marketplace will be held on Saturday, March 16 from 11 am to 5 pm, and Sunday, March 17 from 10 am to 4 pm.

  • Bring your items and registration fees to the TCTC Used Marketplace on Friday from 3:00-8:00 pm, Saturday from 9:00 am until 11 am and Sunday from 9:00 am until 10:00 am.
  • We will only accept items during scheduled drop-off times.
  • Each item will have its sales price listed on the game.
  • Prices will change (at the seller’s discretion) at 1 pm and again at 3pm. This allows potential buyers to choose to wait for a price drop and pick the game up at a lower amount if it’s still around for purchase. Example: Game item has been listed for a starting price of $40, 1 pm price of $35, and 3 pm price of $30.
  • Any TCTC attendee can browse the Used Marketplace and if they find something they’d like to buy, they bring it to the cashier and pay the appropriate listed price (no silent auction mad rush!).
  • At the Used Marketplace closing time, no more sales are allowed and our volunteers work on cashing out the sellers. Sellers can pick up their items that haven’t sold, leave them for Sunday, or donate them to TCTC.

How to Pre-register Items

  1. Pre-register your games for $2 per lot per day (Day-of registrations will be accepted at $5 per lot). Pre-registration ends Monday, March 11 at noon.
  2. Fill out our Google Form.
  3. Print and fill out an Item Sales sheet.
  4. Attach one Item Sales sheet to each lot. Use painter’s tape to attach the Item Sales sheet to your lot. If your lot has multiple items, please try to tape/use an elastic to keep the items together.
  5. Bring your items and registration fees to the TCTC Used Marketplace on Friday March 15th between 3 pm and 8 pm, Saturday March 16 between 9 and 11 am, or Sunday March 17 between 9 and 10 am.
  6. If you have an item lot for Saturday that does not sell, you are welcome to bring it back, or leave it in for Sunday for an additional $2 per lot. You decide the pricing for each day. Single-day item sales are permitted.

How to Register Items Day-of

  • If you lot has multiple items, please try to keep the items together using painter’s tape or an elastic.
  • Day-of registration fees are $5 per lot.
  • Bring your items and registration fees to the TCTC Used Marketplace on Friday March 15th between 3 pm and 8 pm, Saturday March 16 between 9 and 11 am, or Sunday March 17 between 9 and 10 am.
  • We will collect your information, and have you fill out an Item Sales Sheet to attach to your lot.

Terminal City Tabletop Convention, Plaid Dog Events, its volunteers and organizing team are not responsible for your items. We try our best to keep an eye on them and will have volunteers stationed all weekend, but leave at your own risk.

Q: What fee does TCTC charge me for selling my game?
A: TCTC charges a rate of $2 per lot per day for pre-registered items, and $5 per lot for day-of registrations. Money is collected when you drop your games off at the Marketplace. If you put an item in the market on Saturday but want to relist on Sunday, you’ll be charged the lower $2 fee.

Q: If I just want to show up to check out the Marketplace, do I still have to pay the entry fee for TCTC?
Yes, the TCTC used game marketplace is exclusive to TCTC attendees.

Q: If I bring games on Saturday, but am not attending Sunday, can I keep my games in the market for Sunday?
No. You must have a valid ticket for the day you plan to cash out. Unclaimed items will be assumed as donated to TCTC.

Q: How many items can I put up for the Marketplace?
At this time there is no limit. We do reserve the right to limit this at any time if we feel it necessary.

Q. What items can be sold at the Marketplace?
Any board game, TTRPG, or tabletop-gaming related item. Related items would include CCGs, miniatures, and terrain pieces. We have the right to reject items that we don’t feel are suitable.

Q: Can I enter multiple games as a single lot?
Yes! Lots are encouraged and often do better. Please make sure items are securely attached together. We recommend painters tape in most scenarios as it is least likely to damage the boxes.

Q: My game didn’t sell on Saturday, can I re-list for Sunday?
Yes. If you are re-listing an item for Sunday please confirm with the Used Marketplace staff on Saturday. You’ll be charged a $2 re-list fee per lot, and you can adjust your prices if you like.

Q: My games didn’t sell, can I donate them to TCTC?
Yes! Just let the Used Marketplace volunteers know when you cash out and they can hold onto any games you’d like to donate.

Q: I bought a game, but its missing pieces!
A: Unless a game is in its original shrink, it is considered used and as such, might be missing pieces. We assume sellers will list the game appropriately on their slip and TCTC assumes no liability for missing pieces.
