Vintage Games on Ebay
Practically every person in America has played some sort of mass-produced, indoor game during their childhood. Classics like Monopoly, the Game of Life, and Stratego have been enjoyed by literally millions of people on rainy afternoons and vacations. Board games are undoubtedly the most numerous and popular segment of this category, followed by card games and what are known as 'action' games, such as the spine-bending Twister or a game of nerves like Jenga.
The collectability of such games is fairly high, although most board games, even original productions of the classics, do not command the relatively high prices enjoyed by other such categories as action figures or comic books.
The highest prices are commanded by the rarest and most sought-after games; but most collectors also face stiff competition from other types of collectors - for example, a collector of any type of Dark
Shadows memorabilia may be a rival bidder for a Dark Shadows Barnabas Collins game. One should also expect to pay more for games which are now going on fifty years old - still recognizable classics, but which become more rare every year as attrition eats away at the existing supply.
When collecting vintage games, be on the lookout for what condition the item is in: is the box completely intact? Is it taped on one or more sides? Are all the pieces there, and would you know it if they are? One expects honesty from a seller, but the potential buyer must educate herself about exactly what is being purchased.
The list below contains board, card, action, and tabletop strategy games. What it doesn't contain (although a few of them have probably sneaked in) are games that may be more accurately described as 'toys,' like bagatelles and more skill-oriented items such as, say, Time Bomb.
