Default Got a Walmart nearby?

Anyone out there feels like the chance to make a few bucks in the next week or so check your local Walmart for the board game Boxers or Briefs.

They cost $8 and can easily be sold on Ebay right now for at least $35. I sold 11 in under 4 days at $34.99. These were put on clearance at most Walmarts this spring but they are still on the shelf at some. Out of 12 Walmarts I checked in Maine, three had them. I made about $240 after fees.

There is no more for me to find in Maine so maybe some of you can make some money. If any one succeeds I wouldn't object to a tip. Here is a pic and one of the listings that sold.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I have a few Wal-Marts nearby I'll need to visit.

This particular game came out in 2005 and was short lived. In early 2010 it was selling for $50 used. Walmart came out with the re-release and prices hung around $25 for the last 2 years. Now the supply is drying up and it is going up again.

Used board games can be worth a good amount of money. They are how I pay the bills (along with toys and kids books).

I called all my Walmarts and they all thought I was nuts when I asked about it. Any other stores carry it?

I think it was a Walmart exclusive when it was re-released. Not positive though. I personally have never seen it anywhere else.

If it were me I would do $34.99 BIN and it will likely be gone before you wake up. No one has a BIN right now. If you wanted best offer I would do $50.

I take the quick buck every time.

USPS Priority box 1097, weighs under 2 # if it is the more recent game. 3# if it is the 2005 version.

Also fits in a Regional A box.

Boxes 1092, 1095 , or Med Flat Rate would require quite a bit of padding.

Used versions selling at $40 or more as of just a few days ago.

Looks like I might be doing a little Wally World browsing tonight.

None at one. Going to another later. Have you guys been finding them in the toys where all the board games are or are they somewhere else? I know it's more of an adult type game from what I've read.

The three stores I found them at were all in the games section, towards the adult side. It was located beside the game "Would you Rather" all 3 times.

Earlier this year I found them in clearance section of toys, so wouldn't hurt to check that.

Mine was on the bottom shelf in the board games aisle. Took 2 trips through the aisle to notice it. I might have to check out another Wal-Mart tomorrow.
