The Sentry Box Used Game Program

The Sentry Box 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 The Sentry Box? Read on!

·        We are currently accepting used board games and game books (such as RPGs) to sell. Miniatures, novels, toys, dice, and collectibles are currently not being accepted.

·        A seller is limited to five items for sale in our Used Games section. Exceptions can be made for RPG sets and other situations. Just ask.

·        Within reason, the seller may sell a “set” of items as a single item (such as a game plus expansions, or a set of RPG books). 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. The Sentry Box 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 The Sentry Box will only sell that item at that price. We will not break up item sets.

·        Upon submission, within a reasonable amount of time, The Sentry Box staff will prepare the used game for sale. We will attach a Used Game Slip 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, The Sentry Box 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.

·        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. The Sentry Box will process any Sales Tax associated with the purchase.

·        The Sentry Box 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. The Sentry Box does not purchase used games for resale.

·        The Sentry Box will assume responsibility for the care of item while in our possession.

What have the Sentry Box staff been doing this week?

Here is what our staff have been up to this week.

Games

Cursed Court – The intrigues and scandals of the realm’s greater nobility are a subject of fixation, and even obsession, for the entire kingdom.

You must consider both public and hidden information, some of the latter shared among different pairs of players, when wagering your limited influence in each season of the year.

Star Wars Destiny – A collectible dice and card game of battles between iconic heroes and villains that encompasses characters, locations, and themes from the entire Star Wars saga.

You’ve got Crabs – Teams of two players come up with a non vocal signal to indicate when either teammate collects 4 of the same Crab Card. When you have 4 of the same Crab Card, you can’t say anything out loud. Instead, when you’re ready, give your secret signal to your teammate. When they notice, they will point at you and shout, ‘YOU’VE GOT CRABS!’

Exit: Polar Station – An alarm sounded in the eternal ice, so the polar station has been evacuated and foreclosed, but a small group of researchers has remained behind by mistake — and they have only one hour to find the code that will crack the lock program.

Napoleonic Wars – A fast-paced, tension-filled, card-driven wargame using a point-to-point movement system. Set in 1805 Europe, you must weigh the strategic dilemmas facing the two alliances in mortal conflict.

Time of Crisis – 2-4 players take the reins of Roman dynasties, gathering and wielding influence among the senate, military, and people of Rome to ensure that their legacies are remembered by history instead of being lost to the mists of time.

They are giving their best and the dreams become strange and surreal. Become the dreamer, put on your sleeping mask and try to figure out your dream and which spirits are the Naughty ones. Become a good spirit and help the Dreamer by giving him clues about the dream before the naughty spirits mess it up. Close your eyes and dive in!

Get the MacGuffin – A quick and humorous deduction game involving hand management and player elimination. The goal is to be the last player with cards.

Perudo – A dice game in which each player is given five dice and cup to roll and hide them with. Players make successively higher declarations regarding the results of all the dice remaining in the game, e.g. “there are ten sixes”. However, someone can always contest the bid. When that happens, all the dice are revealed and either the bidder or the caller loses dice, depending on who was correct. The last player with dice is the winner.

Kingdomino – You are a Lord seeking new lands in which to expand your kingdom. You must explore all the lands, wheat fields, lakes, and mountains in order to spot the best plots. But be careful as some other Lords also covet these lands.

Decrypto – Players compete in two teams in Decrypto, with each trying to correctly interpret the coded messages presented to them by their teammates while cracking the codes they intercept from the opposing team.

Loopin’ Chewie – Chewbacca in the Millenium Falcon is tasked with knocking out the other players’ stormtroopers. When only one player has stormtroopers left, that player wins.

Werewords – Players guess a secret word by asking “yes” or “no” questions. Figure out the magic word before time is up, and you win!

In addition, you must be on good terms with the powerful bishop, who can help you in your quest.

Sailing toward Osiris – Pharaoh is dead and his funerary barge sails slowly down the Nile toward his tomb where his spirit will stand before the judgement of Osiris. Pharaoh had no offspring so tradition holds that the governors of the land be tasked with building monuments to Pharaoh’s glory so that Osiris will favor his spirit in the afterlife. Accordingly, Pharaoh’s successor will be the governor who builds the greatest tribute to the late king.

Space Base – Players assume the roles of Commodores of a small fleet of ships. Ships begin docked at their stations and are then deployed to sectors as new ships are commissioned under your command.

Shadows: Amsterdam – A crime has been committed. Over the last few days, the police investigation has languished. Your detective agency has been called in to speed up the investigation, but your main rivals are also on the case.
