    Hi everyone.

    I dont actually have an interest in retro gaming myself but I have just been given my late fathers collection of Amiga games and disks. I would like to sell them on to someone or others who would actually use and enjoy them however I do not know anything about these games and their worth.

    I have done a bit of research and understand for the most part Amiga games have more sentimental value than financial but wanted to get any advice on the easiest way of selling on my collection while at the same time protecting myself should I have anything of any minor value. There are about 150 games in big boxes/cases, most of which are in good to excellent condition with manuals etc. On top of that I would estimate about another 150-180 loose disks of games, softwares, magazine demos etc. These are in four storage holders so all in all quite a lot and I would rather not have to sell individually on Ebay etc unless some individual titles have a high enough value. I have no idea if any of the games work as I have no means to test them.

    As you can imagine for someone who knows nothing about Amiga games and has no clue as to the value of any of this lot to research each one would be a mental nightmare. I dont believe there are any golden nuggets here and certainly dont expect to make a great deal from them but would love some advice as to the best course of action.I have a list of everything. Ideally I would like these to go as a job lot but have no idea what to price them at as a whole and postage costs would be lol high as they are in two large boxes and weigh a ton.

    Any advice would be much apreciated.

    Thank you.
