Places to sell used board games online.
There is a good market for used board games on eBay. This is good in many ways because it uses auction-style selling or flat-rate pricing, and you can also include shipping charges to cover your expenses.
When selling on eBay, it’s important to mention the details of the game, how many pieces it contains and whether any pieces are missing. Include some good-quality photos and how long you have used the board game.
Facebook is a wonderful platform for selling used items. You can just put up the games you want to sell with some good photos and detailed descriptions in a post and ask your friends to share it. Or you can join some groups that specialize in buying and selling used board games. Putting up a post in one of these groups will help you sell your games sooner.

BoardGameCo is a company that will buy your board games but only if they feel they are worth it. They have a wanted list for valuable board games like Pandemic, Ticket to Ride and Blood Rage. But they will also buy games like Scrabble and Monopoly if they have a demand for them. Most often, they would agree to buy from you if you have many board games to sell.
Send them a list of games you want to sell with a description of their condition and some photos, and they will get back to you within a few business days if they are interested. Fill out their form with the necessary details, and if they are interested, you can ship the games to them. If you have many, then they will cover the shipping cost too. Usually, they pay about 25%-50% of the market value if they are in demand and less if they are overstocked with that particular game.
