If you’re already doing retail arbitrage and Amazon FBA, then it’s no trouble to add a few board games to your next RA shipment. And then if the customer has any problems, Amazon will be able to handle the customer service. Even if you’re not a beginner, supplementing your traditional retail arbitrage with board games is a smart idea. I always suggest that beginners diversify their inventoryby buying wide instead of deep. Well, you could quickly build a large inventory with a small investment by focusing on board games. The low cost of purchase and high profit potential make board games perfect for Amazon beginners. But what makes board games even better than niche books is their strong sentimental value.
Luckily there are sites like boardgamegeek.com that have detailed information on how many of each piece is included in most board games. This step should really go hand-in-hand with assigning the proper condition guidelines on used board games. It’s important that you double and triple check to make sure that ALL of the board game pieces are included. Thrift stores also generally have a good supply of board games for low prices. If you’re already at a thrift store to scan books or housewares, you should definitely take a look at board games, too.

If you need recommendations for these items, I discuss my favorite packaging products in my blog post about how to package bundles. To keep your board games in the best condition, it’s important to package them properly for shipment to Amazon or the customer. Sometimes you might not know exactly which pieces are supposed to be included.
- The controversial and much-hyped No Man’s Sky is a game that offers two opposing experiences.
- One is a beautiful and wholly fresh journey through space to chart, or conquer, undiscovered worlds.
- What Minecraft presents is a Lego-like space for players to enjoy their own kind of play.
- Kerbal Space Program operates on an understanding of success as the sum of persistence through failure; in short, it’s going to take quite some time before your uniquely crafted ship is considered space-worthy.
- Dedicated players will love the sandbox’s many possibilities, but even casuals will find pleasure facing off against an unfriendly wilderness.
If that doesn’t give you enough information, you can search for your game on eBay. You might find board games at thrift stores that are held together by a rubber band or tape. Both tape and rubber bands could easily break in a FBA warehouse or even while sitting on a hot UPS truck. My top choice for packaging board games is an impulse sealer with a heat gun. However, for smaller games, self-sealing poly bags are a great choice.
Glad you are offering this guide, so I’m not guessing what to buy. All used board games have to go as “collectible” on Amazon. Prices can really fluctuate on collectible board games, especially as supply decreases. You can check Keepa or CamelCamelCamel for pricing history on Amazon.
We treat our customers fairly and will not just cherry-pick your collection. There are so many great board games out there to flip, for amazing returns! It’s so much go better to master one niche, than to be mediocre in multiple niches. Master board games, then move on to another profitable niche! Other profitable niches include books, toys, and grocery. I bought a board game recently for $3 and quickly sold it for $105. I thought man this is easy, just by games, post them and they will sell.
