    Unwanted/unsellable games? 8th Oct 17 at 2:58 PM
    I bought a Wii secondhand from someone a while back and it came with some games that I'm really not interested in. They're not popular games so no one would really want to buy them. I was wondering what I can do with them? They're not in the best condition but they still work so it seems like a waste to just throw them away.

    Charity shop/Freecycle
    Don't harass a hippie. You'll get bad karma.

    Trade them in at CEX for vouchers and use them towards buying a game you do want?

    Why throw something like that away which someone could use eg buying from cex or a charity shop.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    I was compiling an order of games for myself and grandchildren, but happened to check the basket and found the postage is £1.50 per item costing under £50, instead of the fixed price for up to10 items. Even someone buying one item over £50 still has to pay £1.50 for any cheaper items in the order.


    Customers who regularly spend over £50 have decided to leave as their postage has gone up by 10x£1.50- £2.50=£12.50

    I advertised two carrier bags of pre-Vista pc games, on Freegle , and they were snapped up by a man who does security work and plays on an old laptop when bored.

    What about your local foodbank? They might be interested in them.

    We usually throw in a few toys with the food donations we make at this time of year so that they can give their children something/a bit more for christmas.

    Suppose that might not work so well if they're 18+ games though.
    Money doesn't solve poverty.....it creates it.

    Trade them in at GAME or CEX (personally I'd recommend GAME).
