Used Game Wall Grand Opening and Open Gaming for Extra Life Charity

Second Hand Game Wall Grand Opening!
Due to the overwhelming popularity of our annual board game swap and sell we have decided to create a year round section for people to bring in and sell their used games and RPGs. In addition to this we have created a section for people to sell their miniature armies displayed behind glass. So please help us start this thing out right and come in November 4th and browse our new section as it fills up. Bring in your old games, armies, and RPG books and turn your old games into store credit. Read more on how to submit your games here.

Used Games

Game Universe features a Used Games section, full of gently used games at great prices. Used games are sold on a consignment basis. Each item (or set of items) has an accompanying condition report, completed by the seller, full of helpful information about the games’ condition and completeness. Swing on by and check out the offerings – they change all the time!

Want to sell your gently used games at Game Universe? Read on!

  • We are currently accepting used board games, and war game miniatures to sell. (Novels, toys, dice, and collectibles are currently not being accepted.)
  • A seller is limited to five items for active sale in our Used Games section. Exceptions can be made upon request and by approval of store owner.
  • Within reason, the seller may sell a “set” of items as a single item (such as a game plus expansions). These items will be shrink-wrapped together and presented and sold as a single item.
  • The seller must complete a USED GAME SUBMISSION FORM (a fillable form that you can complete and print ahead of time) for each item sold. You can download this form and bring it in, or we will have copies available at the store. The seller is expected to be honest about the condition of their item. Game Universe staff will review the Submission Form and suggest changes if we deem them appropriate. These forms will be available to view by potential buyers.
  • The seller determines a single asking price for the item. Please mark your sale price in whole dollars if possible (but this is not required). This price will be non-negotiable and Game Universe will only sell that item at that price. We will not break up item sets.
  • Upon submission, within a reasonable amount of time, Game Universe staff will prepare the used game for sale. We will attach a Used Game Sale Sticker (Post-It note adhesive only) to the item and shrink wrap the item before shelving. This note includes the asking price of the game and a summary of the Submission Form condition report.
  • Once shelved, an item will be given at least 60 days to sell. After that time, Game Universe may ask that the seller take the item back. An unsold item may not be submitted for sale again for at least another 60 days.
  • If a seller does not pick up a game within 30 days of being asked to take back their game they will surrender ownership of the game to Game Universe
  • Upon the sale of an item, the buyer will be given 3 days to return the item if he or she does not agree with the Submission Form condition report. This is the only condition under which we will accept a used game return.
  • Three days after the sale (or as soon as possible), the seller will receive a store credit for 80% of the asking price of the item, as submitted by the seller. Game Universe will process any Wisconsin Sales Tax associated with the purchase.
  • Game Universe has the right to refuse to accept any item due to demand, condition, appropriateness, existing copies already for sale, or any other reason.
  • A Used Game is sold on consignment and remains the property of the original owner until such a time as it sells or is removed from circulation. Game Universe does not purchase used games for resale.
  • Game Universe will assume responsibility for the care of item while in our possession.
  • Please note that, due to the nature of how Used Games are made available and sold, the price of a Used Game may not be adjusted. This means that discounts from the use of the membership program and other discounts may not be applied to Used Game purchases.
