    New Board Game Consignment Sales

    GOB launched a new section this month. Board games on consignment. Mosty used (but could be a new one) that our customers bring in to sell. This is helping us to broaded our already enormous selection of board games to include games not traditionally available at retail. Out of print, kickstarters, imports and stuff simply not available through distribution for stores like ours to be able to order. That, and ust good old fashion used copies of stuff we might carry. So come check it out. AND, if you have some used games of your own and would like to sell them to get store credit for some new games, for a limited time, we'll allowing sellers the option to put as many as 10 titles on consignment at once.
