Charity Games Swap

26 Jun 2022 11:00 - 16:00

The Sheffield Games Collective is hosting its first ever event! The SGC Charity Game Swap will take place on the last Sunday in June at the brand new Patriot Games venue on Mary Street.

Got some old games (table top or video) or gaming memorabilia gathering dust in your house? Bring them along to the swap to turn your junk into someone else’s treasure, while raising money for a great cause: all proceeds as well as leftover games will be donated to Roundabout Sheffield to help them support young people at risk of homelessness.

The game swap is effectively a games-themed ‘bring and buy' sale’ where you set the prices! It will work like this: If you have games to donate you can bring them with you on the day of the event or drop them off at Patriot Games or The Treehouse beforehand during their regular opening hours. Those who donate games either on the day or in advance get free entry to the swap.

On the day, the full range of games donated will be available for people to browse at Patriot Games between 11am and 4pm. Those who haven’t donated games themselves will be asked to pay an entry fee of £3 (this includes re-entry for those who wish to come in and browse more than once - a smart strategy given that more stock will turn up throughout the event!).

Games in the swap will be available to take home with you on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis, with a suggested minimum donation of £3 per game. Card/ contactless payments will be accepted as well as cash.

Roundabout will also be running a raffle on the day with some great prizes to be won! All proceeds from the event plus any games left over at the end of the swap will be donated to Roundabout to support their invaluable work helping vulnerable young people.

What can I donate to the swap?

You can bring along any tabletop games and accessories, including board games, roleplaying games, dice sets, etc. You can also bring along physical copies of video games, games memorabilia and collectibles.

Please DON’T bring gaming consoles or other electrical equipment as they will be unable to sell these due to electrical safety regulations.

Prices

Free if donating, £3 if not.
