Incredible finding of an italian player inside a BB3
« on: May 20, 2023, 02:30:57 PM »
A user on an italian forum shared an incredible experience. He bought a BB3 time ago and never actually gave attention to its content. Recently he found out that the box contained WAY MORE that it was supposed to contain. Other then the regular content, it was:
  • The School
  • 5 little bags in different colors
  • Darmstad Promo tiles
  • Spiel 14 and 15
  • Labyrinths
  • Anniversary stickers
  • 36 blank tiles
  • Tunnel expansions
  • Pest expansion
  • Windroses
  • German Castles C1
  • Count of Carcassonne, River 1, Minis 1, 5 and 6
  • Half tiles, the triangular ones
  • ...and many others min oexpansion in custom boxes
This user has no idea what all of this is.... I was so freakin' jealous. How do you think something like this may have happened? Did some of you ever experienced something similar?

Lucky find then!
It happens that people put stuff together in a big box for storage, and then sell the whole thing in 1. I guess the seller didn't know or realise it had so much more in it, and the buyer is very lucky.

One of the advantages of buying used. :o Always check tile count and someone who clearly doesn't know what they're doing with a listing is especially apt to give away valuable items. Carcassonne's horrible boxes just asking for this to happen as people compact their collection and then forget what they've done. I got a bunch of bonus Agricola content this way and something to always look at for when looking at unsealed listing. (The seller had even removed some important components in their curating of the game, so it was unplayable as sent and I got a significant discount due to missing meeples.)
