Our twice yearly Board Game Swap & Sell is at 12 pm on May 22. May 22 will be our first in-person swap since the shutdown last year, so expect some limitations on our usual fun to help keep everyone safe and traffic moving, but, expect to be able to shop the swap in person! Hooray!
From noon to 1:30 the swap will be ticketed in 15 minute increments. All tickets will be returned to you as store credit. Store credit is not usable in the swap, so feel free to use that on a new game between now and the swap.
After 2 pm, the doors will be open to anyone that wants to come shop what remains at the swap – no ticket needed. This ticketing system will help control traffic, and remove your need to wait in line at the door – in fact, we will discourage you from waiting at the door unless your time slot is the NEXT one.
If you don’t want to buy a ticket, you can return after 2 pm.
- If you’re bringing games in, you may start dropping them off any time from now until May 21. We strongly encourage early dropoffs.
Bring in your old games, set your price, and other customers will buy you a gift card in that amount in exchange for your game.
Clear out the closet before the new hotness of the summer and fall starts arriving! Here’s how it works:
- Set your price
- Put your game on the tables with your member ID (or cell number)
- Get store credit on your account when it sells
- Please remove all shrink wrap – used items only
The doors open promptly at noon, and priority will be given to those in line at the time.
We will also be requiring an inventory list of your games to be filled out at dropoff. If you wish to create a list in advance, it must include the name of each game, asking price for each, and your member ID number. It is extremely helpful to submit this list to firstname.lastname@example.org as an Excel Spreadsheet prior to dropoff.
At this stage we are presuming that the medical advise to keep times to 15 minutes or less will still be accurate on May 22. Social distancing and masks will still be required as well – if you do not or cannot wear a mask. We will therefore ask that everyone try to keep their visit short – we recognize that everyone wants to socialize and hang out, and that time will come! But we please adhere to these guidelines. Those who do not will be asked, politely, to leave the venue.
Read carefully; there are no exceptions to these terms, for any reason.
100% of the sale price will go on your customer account as store credit – we take no fees from this sale. In exchange, the following considerations are in effect for all participants.
Swap is for date above only. Items left behind at the swap after that date become property of Just Games Rochester LLC and will be used to support local libraries and schools, added to our own library, or donated to other charitable organizations. Our swaps generally create $2-$3000 in donations, so your old games always go to a good home! Even games added to our library are eventually donated, so the end game here is always positive for you! Items may be dropped off any time between no and May 21 at close of business. Please, no day-of dropoffs. Any items still in shrink wrap will be opened by our staff if left in that condition, no exceptions. Please note that Just Games takes no responsibility for the care of your items, so please tag your items securely. All items not picked up by close of business the day of the swap become property of Just Games Rochester LLC. We reserve the right to add our own labeling to your items, and take no responsibility for damage done removing these tags later.
