I have a SF game I'd like to sell in the marketplace. (Please don't ask what it is -- I don't want to violate any TMP rules.)

Is now a good time to post it? Or being the holiday gift-giving season, is everyone already spending their money and have nothing left?

After the holidays people might have extra cash to spend? It's a mixed bag.

Why don't you just post it in the marketplace and see what happens?

Yeah, I think cloudcaptain is right. In my case, I tend to get some hobby money as a gift, but I know for a bunch of my friends January and February are lean months for hobby spending.

I've been told the best times to sell are spring after tax day and fall after Labor Day.

Set your price, and it sells or it doesn't. Then relist later if needed. If it were an auction it might be different.

Better now than after Christmas, I suspect, for many things, since once the money is gone, it's gone, generally.

I have found, in my years of wargame sales, that selling during Christmas most often sucks. Better to wait a month. No idea why.

I had to re-up my membership but it's posted now --

Human Interface Be a Better Human Kickstarter Special Edition.

Cyberpunk board game from Postindustrial Games (Poland). Fun game with terrific figures!
