About Us

So what’s all this about then?

Boxed in Hobbies is an independent currated collection of hard-to-find, out-of-print and pre-loved collectables. If you like boardgames, role playing or miniatures games, we’ve probably got something you’re looking for. We have a storrage facility chock full of the stuff – everything from old books to complete Kickstarter pledges. And more is on the way.

For the last 30 years we’ve been actively involved in many aspects of the hobby world. We have been collectors, exhibitors, publishers, developers, promoters – you name it. Along the way we’ve made many friends and ammassed a huge back catalogue of items. The stuff just keeps rolling in!

It has got to the point where we are literally “boxed-in” by the things we’ve acquired over the years. It’s clear we no-longer have the space nor the time left to enjoy everything – which is why Boxed-in Hobiess was created. We are now giving you the chance to take some of these items off our hands.

Over the weeks and months that follow, we will begin the lengthy process of adding more and more content to the site.

Most of the items in the collection are new or new old – by which we mean “new” but starting to show their age!

Some of the items are review copies. The boxes have been opened and the items examined – but not used. To our way of thinking, this means the item is still new – which is why we’ll provide a detailed description for the condition of every item.

It won’t happen quickly. We’ve a lot to get through, catalogue and photograph. A list of what’s coming can be found below. If you are interested in anything in particular, don’t hesitate to drop us a line. That will encourage us to prioritise particular parts of the collection.
