Fine Games'
(Pre-) Retirement Liquidation Sales Landing Page

(Last updated 27 November 2022)

It's been a long, strange trip this little business of selling happiness and entertainment in the form of wargames to gamers around the world for fully 30 years and still counting. But retirement looms, we expect Q2 2023 will be our swan song, and we simply need to find homes for 3,000 games, mags & parts. Since our first Retirement Sale in late 2020, our inventory has been reduced by over 70%.



To be clear, we remain an ongoing business and will for some time, are NOT immediately liquidating all our assets, and these are NOT going out-of-business sales. We'll get there soon, sure. For now, we are on an orderly and years-long glide path toward retirement.


See the end of this page for pictures of what retirement might look like for me.


Fine Games Retirement Sales

Our Retirement Sales are an ongoing series of big, Really Big, liquidation sales. Each is intended to give you an unbeatable deal too good to pass up, and each sale just gets ever sweeter over time. All with the primary goal of find good homes for each of the 3,000 items remaining in stock.


Each Retirement Liquidation Sale offer will have special pricing and special terms unique to that offer. Both pricing and special terms are valid only during the sale period clearly stated here and in our sale catalgs. After each sale offer expires, normal pricing resumes.


Retirement Liquidation Sales #10 - Nearly All Remaining Magazine-onlys & Game-onlys

Our tenth Retirement Liquidation Sale features 544 magazines & game-onlys (games published in magazines but sold now as game-only). This is basically our entire remaining stock of these categories. So when they are gone, they are gone for good; there are no more.

Our catalog is updated frequently; we urge you to download a fresh copy immediately before starting your shopping.


Our Offer is this: Each item on both Liquidcation Catalog bears a simple price. This is the price you pay for each. Buy as many or as few as you wish. Simple. Sale expires at 11:59pm on Friday, 18 November. That gives you over three weeks to take care of business, so you procrastenators better get a move on.


All items included in this sale are flat & unboxed, so we can likely get at least a dozen (perhaps many more) into a flat rate Priority Mail box for a fixed $23. Note that orders placed under this sale requiring weight-based shipping charges via either USPS or UPS will be quoted a price (including dimensional weight). Our shipping rates are included on the second page of each catalog.


Next Up - projected for late Fall

We've giving thought to what to include in what may be our final Annual Clearance Sale late next month. Regardless, it should be a blow out sale with many hundred games of all sorts, mostly new, at true liquidation prices. Stay tuned & be sure you're subscribed to receive prompt notification.


How to Order

To place an order you simply collect a list of the games or other items you wish to order (including game title, part # and price ideally) from our catalogs. Then, email it to us with your full name, contact info & payment instructions. You can also phone or fax us, if you prefer. Your games will be shipped as early as the same day, and rarely later than the next weekday. Note that we do not have an online form for ordering. Go here for more complete ordering details.


You will expedite the process if you record the (1) part#, (2) the game title, and (3) the liquidation price for each item you wish to order, and forward that via email or phone. For example:

123456     D-Day at Fine Games     $99.99

If you email, please state clearly if you are placing a firm order (as opposed to anything less, like a simple inquiry), and if so tell us how you intend to pay for your order. Only if we have the latter two pieces of info do we have enough info to reserve anything for you pending arrival of payment. If you haven't ordered from us recently, or you've moved recently, please also provide your current home address & phone#.


Normal payment terms apply to all Retirement orders.


We accept checks (with the cash discount reflected in all our pricing), as well as credit cards and PayPal (sent to PayPal@FineGames.com, or via PayPal.Me/FineGames/$$$.$$ where $$$.$$ is the actual dollar value owed without a $ sign. Example: PayPal.Me/FineGames/123.45.) Note that payment methods where we must pay a fee to receive your payment (credit/debit card or PayPal) forego the cash discount and so the grand total will be 3.75% more than any stated price you see in our catalogs; that includes shipping as well.


Please be aware of & respect our reservation policy. We will reserve items for you that you are certain – as in 100% certan – you want them. We will not reserve items prospectively or while you "think about it." If you tell us you are ordering an item but later change your mind, we will be hesitent to reserve anything for you on future orders. Do it twice and we will only reserve items when we have payment in hand. This is especially true of our Annual Clearance and Retirement Liquidation Sales.



We ship by USPS priority mail where possible, but can ship via UPS.


With a major exception, our normal shipping charges apply to each order, regardless of whether some or all items come from this clearance. For most orders including boxed items, shipping is $23.00 per order. A single unboxed item can ship for $9.00, multiple unboxed items for $11.00. A single boxed item (plus unboxed items as will fit) generally ships for $17.00; most other orders are $23.00. We will quote shipping for your specific order.


That exception is that for domestic orders requiring boxed, UPS shipment, then the price of shipping will be based on shipping weight. Shipping weight is determined by the greater of actual or dimensional weight. We will estimate weight at time of order. See our domestic shipping rate chart for prices.

International orders are generally based on shipping weight. Contact us for a quote.

My concept of retirement is something of the nature of "doing what I want 24/7." While I remain healthy, that means outdoor activities including camping, hiking and seeing the world one beer at a time from the seat of a bike (i.e. bike touring). I've got my bright red bikes -- akin to bright red corvettes old men buy but far more practical -- and am ready to go already. Have my sights on doing the 2700 mile Great Divide MTB Tour route in 2023. And once I find need for a rocking chair, perhaps I'll even find time to play all the thousands of games I own; I've always said to many of you considering selling your collections, "retirement is coming!" When retirement does arrives, time should be less of a constraint to enjoying our gaming hobby for each of us. Then, I need a set of eBikes....
