    My brother got two of the same game as a gift. Both gifts were purchased from overseas, so it's not as easy as going to a local shop with the receipt and get the game changed..

    He asked me to sell it locally for him but I have no idea what price to ask. Btw it's a sealed copy of The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom

    Sell it for whatever it's going for on Steam, or slightly below.

    Wow... on Steam it's €49.99 :twitch: but on gameplay.co.uk linked in my first post it is only €17.70 with shipping included :eek:

    Now I'm even more confused on which price to ask... I want to get him a good deal because he'll be buying another game with the money he sells this one for.

    Most people will probably look for the game on Steam - yes, no? If so, sell it at 35euro and offer to deliver it. People love convenience and speed.

    If most people will look for it on a site like gameplay, then I'd say 15euro.

    If you're selling it on eBay, then inflate the price to slightly more than Steam with "free" shipping - there's always a sucker on there who'll buy it. I know from experience. ;)

    If you're selling to the clued-up on TPU, then sell it for 15 Euros* with free shipping.

    *How the heck do you get the Euro symbol on a UK keyboard? :eek:
