Games You Should Pick #3: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Board Game

Hi everyone!

I thought since board games are my specialty, I would do a Game of the Week feature where I talk about a different board game and why you should be picking it up. We’ll call this feature Games You Should Pick. To make this interesting, I’m only going to talk about games I’ve actually managed to find and sell. There’s all kinds of games you should be looking out for, like Fireball Island and Dark Tower, but I haven’t managed to find either of those yet!

This week’s game is the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Board Game.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a very popular horror television series from the late 90s. It was a movie first, of course, but the movie didn’t come close to being great whereas the TV show is pretty amazing and has a huge cult following, still to this day. This board game was released in 2000. One player takes on the role of the evil characters, while everyone else becomes a good character from the show. Each side has an objective to reach and the first one to do so, wins. There are a few different scenarios that can be played.

This game is very much still in demand. Although the gameplay is a bit lacking, it’s very collectible. Even average condition games will sell quickly. The important thing is that the game is complete. Box condition matters for value, but no matter what the box condition is, Buffy games will always sell as long as they are complete.  A sealed copy of this game can easily go for $50. Mint but opened copies should sell well at the $40 mark. Games with condition issues, either with the box or with the playing pieces, or both, can go anywhere between $15 and $30. Once again, I do not suggest ever selling this at auction, because while the demand is greater for this than other games, it’s still not high enough to warrant an auction.

I have sold two copies of this game. I found both of these games at thrift stores. The first one I sold to someone in Australia for $19.99 plus shipping. It wasn’t in the best of condition and the game pieces were very well played with. The second one sold domestically for $24.99 plus shipping. It was in better condition, although it still had some issues that prevented it from being in excellent condition. The interior contents were in better condition with the second one. Both of these games sold quickly, which is definitely the nice thing about this title and why it’s a great pick-up.
