Turn Preowned Board Games and RPGs into Cash or Store Credit

Hi folks, do you have shelves, closets, or basements full of games and RPGs you may not play again? Want an easy, low effort shot at turning them into cash or store credit?

Help us help you! Turn in your preowned games to us at any store from now through March 18th and we’ll do our best to sell them for you.

This year, Battleground has sponsored an entire 2nd booth at PAX East in March dedicated to selling preowned board games and RPGs.

Simply fill out the form at this link for each game, and drop them off at the store whenever it’s convenient. The form will ask a series of questions about your game, allow you to set the price, and tell us where you’ll be dropping them off. That’s it! We’ll take it from there.

Fill out the form here.

Guilds of Ravnica Bundle Rumble – October 5th

Battleground’s BUNDLE RUMBLE is back for Guilds of Ravnica!!  Join us for our flagship Sealed Deck event and help us celebrate the release of Magic’s latest set
(Formerly the Fat Pack Challenge)

 

Format: **Bundle Sealed**
Date: October 5th, 2018 a FRIDAY
Time: 7:00pm
Entrance Fee: $40.00

 

Please preregister! Space is limited!

 

Please email Chase@battlegroundgames.com with any questions.

 

Guilds of Ravnica will be released on Friday, October 5th and we will have a full line-up of events for you to crack packs, build decks and play Magic at both of our stores! The weekend will kick off with our flagship Sealed Deck style event, the Bundle Rumble.

 

The Battleground Bundle Rumble is taking place on Friday night, 10/5/2018, in Abington and Norton (run in place of Standard FNM). These are the ultimate sealed events – where you open packs, build a deck and play with just the contents of a Guilds of Ravnica Bundle!

 

The concept of the Bundle Rumble is pretty simple. Each player will receive a Guilds of Ravnica Bundle with which to build a 40 card deck. Players may use ONLY what is inside of their Bundle to construct their decks. No additional land will be provided!  This event is essentially a 10 pack sealed deck tournament.

 

Player’s in the event will be competing for glory and a super sweet commemorative plaque. No other prizes will be award for this event.

Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease – Sept 29th and 30th

 

Come return again with us to the city plane of Ravnica with the Guilds of Ravnica Pre-Release – September 29th and September 30th, 2018.  Get things started in a huge way at our Midnight Prerelease on Friday night / Saturday morning at 12:00am, after FNM.
.
A look at the schedule can be seen in the image above.  Here are a few more details:
.
For the Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease we will be asking players to select a particular “Guild Pack” that they will use during the event.  These Guild Packs are similar to the Prerelease Packs you may be used to, except instead of 6 booster packs they’ll include 5 booster packs + 1 “seeded” pack that corresponds to the two colors that represent your chosen guild.  It is recommended that players preregister to make sure they get the two-color Guild Packs that they’d like.
.
Please talk to someone at the store or email me at Chase@battlegroundgames.com to preregister.
.
Sealed Deck Format: Each player receives one Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease Pack (5 Guilds of Ravnica boosters + 1 seeded guild booster + 1 guild promo + 20 sided spin down life counter) with which to build their deck.
.
Two-Headed Giant (2HG) Sealed Deck Format: Each TEAM will receive 2 Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease Packs with which to build two 40 card decks.
.
OUR CASUAL FRIENDLY PRIZE PAYOUT WILL AWARD PRIZE PACKS TO EVERYONE THAT’S WON TWO OR MORE MATCHES!
.
Please note: Prerelease packs are first-come first-serve. If you desire a specific guild for your Prerelease Pack please tell us when you register so we can put one aside for you!
.
If you have pre-ordered a box of Guilds of Ravnica you may pick it up a WEEK EARLY at one of these events and also receive the Buy-A-Box Promo Impervious Greatwurm.
.

Huge End of Summer Sale – September 22nd

Come down for massive savings on tons of stock at our End of Summer Sale, September 22nd in Abington.

Over our sixteen years in business, three locations in Massachusetts, and multiple annual conventions, Battleground has accumulated quite an impressive amount of inventory. We’ve decided to put together a sale at our Abington location that our customers can really take advantage of.

Leading up to the sale, we’ll be posting pictures throughout the month of September of just a small amount of what you’ll find available for unbelievably low prices. And don’t think that this is just going to be old, dusty games that have been languishing without a home for too long (although those will be available as well at super-low prices)! No, this sale will feature some of the hottest games going that we just happen to be a bit overstocked on.

Furthermore, we’ll be pulling some REALLY old stuff out from the vaults in our storage area. Several of these old games and accessories haven’t seen the light of day for many years. Who knows what sort of treasures you’re likely to discover?

Here’s a list of some of the stuff on sale.  Come check it out this Saturday in Abington.
