We purchase used merchandise for store credit!  Each store buys different products, so check with your local manager for what they’re buying.  Depending on need, we may be interested in Graphic Novels, Magic Cards, Board Games, RPG miniatures, Games Workshop, and even RPGs.  Please always call before visiting to make sure a buyer is on-site to look over your merchandise.

Graphic Novel Selling Guidelines

  • Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks must be inspected prior to completing nay deal.
    • Make an appointment with an authorized Buyer and plan to stay on-premises during inspection. Inspection time will  depend on the volume and condition of your books. Please understand you may be required to wait while we assist other customers.
    • Any property you abandon before, during, or after inspection becomes the property of Modern Myths Inc.  
    • Modern Myths Inc. does guarantee we will accept any books we inspect.
    • If you turn down our offer, you may not leave or donate your unwanted games.  Any abandoned games may be destroyed & you will be ineligible to request further sales or trades.
    • We generally offer 10-20% of original cover price in store credit on books we accept. We reserve the right to make exceptions for in-demand titles and/or bulk buys.
    • PROTIP: Your books should be clean, dry, and free of any odors like cigarette smoke or mildew to be accepted. We’re more likely to accept full runs of series, and we prefer current printings of titles we carry regularly. In some cases we will accept duplicates of titles we already have in-stock, but a quick scan of our racks will help you decide what to bring.

Board Game Selling Guidelines:

  • Games must be received & inspected prior to completing any deal.
    • Make an appointment with an authorized Buyer and plan to stay on-premises during inspection. Inspection time will  depend on the volume and condition of your games. Please understand you may be required to wait while we assist other customers.
    • Any property you abandon before, during, or after inspection becomes the property of Modern Myths Inc.  
    • Modern Myths Inc. does not guarantee we will accept any games we inspect.
    • If you turn down our offer, you may not leave or donate your unwanted games.  Any abandoned games may be destroyed & you will be ineligible to request further sales or trades.
  • Games should be in excellent or mint conditionWe won’t accept any games that are missing components. We may consider games in Good or Fine condition if they are in high demand, but we always reserve the right to adjust our buy price accordingly.

    • Condition descriptions:
      • Mint: An unpunched, unused game which has been previously owned by a consumer.  Internal pieces are still shrink wrapped.
      • Excellent: A mint game that is punched & used becomes excellent; the extent of wear is proportional to the game’s age. Minor signs of wear may be seen, easily replaced components (such as dice or counter trays) may be missing, or rules neatly highlighted or counters neatly clipped if noted. Blank counters may be written on or simply missing. An excellent game can be assumed to be complete.
  • Typically, we’ll offer you store credit.  The amount we offer will vary depending on your game(s) demand and condition.  In rare cases, we may offer cash, for proportionately less than store credit.  Sales are never guaranteed, and will depend on the specific items being sold.
  • Games which arrive in disorder, especially larger games with pieces disorganized inside the game box, lose value for that very fact. We strongly recommend that you take a few minutes to organize your games: place everything in the right trays, organize the pieces, and stack the cards neatly before you bring them in!
  • Before bringing a game to be inspected, read the following questions to ensure a game isn’t disqualified from trade.
    • Have I checked it for completeness?
    • Can I smell mildew or tobacco or other smoke?
    • Do I notice any mildew spotting or staining to any components?
    • Do I notice indications of moisture warping or staining?
    • Do I notice any sun fading or discoloration?
    • Are all components included: counters, box, dice, counter trays, etc.? Are all counters originally included in the package still there?
    • How much wear has the game received? Is the box torn, scuffed, or concave? Are the rules highlighted, soiled or torn? Are there crude repairs to any components (such as with scotch, filament or masking tape)? Is the map colorized? Any food spills?
    • Is the binding of rules or magazines (generally a couple of staples) still intact?
