Calculating the value of your Carcassonne Collection
« on: August 22, 2018, 05:17:31 AM »
Hello,

I was wondering if there is a way to calculate the total value of one’s Carcassonne collection? Is it best to use sites like eBay and BoardGameGeek?  :) Or are there other methods that you would recommend?

That's a very tricky question as it's difficult to predict how much certain items are worth (especially the rarities). Special editions of the game, rare tiles like the Spiel 14/15/16/17 and Russian promos, misprinted tiles or tiles missing watermarks are all worth different amounts to different people.

As much as I'd love to see one, I don't know of any online tools or calculators that could work out a total value for you but others here may be aware of something.

Might be best not to add it all up even if there was - there's always a danger the other half would find out!!

People have used the old collection calculator on BGG before, but I believe it's not available anymore.
As Dan said, it's a tricky one as some things might be worth more to you than to someone else, or the other way around.
I would look for the (average) costs of the items and see if I agree with those, and then add everything up together.
Not that I'm going to do this for my collection, as Rich has pointed out the exact reason for that  ;)

My Carcassonne collection is finished and I think it is far from being worth 1/10th of My Magic collection

So I don't know If I want to know either

Put it up for sale on ebay. The market will decide the value. Does it include the £650 book thingy that was released this year?

Honestly, I’m not looking to sell any of my collection. It was just for my own personal curiosity.   ^-^

Unfortunately, it does not include the newly released (and rather expensive) Carcassonne book.  :-\

Do we know of anyone that has actually ordered one? I'm still saving a euro per week, so in about 10 years I'll be ready to order!

Well I save 2 euro's every two weeks I will get it faster. Probably maybe a handful.

I thought Halfling was going to buy one that we could hold a raffle for?

I did say that. Not a single bit of interest in the idea that I remember.

Things sold as a collection tend to get less price per piece, than those pieces sold separately. So that is something to consider.
