Question Big box conundrum

When I bought my Amiga from ebay I got about 50 original games with it, all in their original boxes.

Now this was all well and good, but now the boxes are taking up LOADS of space in my little computer room, and I'm wondering what to do with them.

I'm not very sentimental about them, but would they be of any use to anybody else?

If not, I think I'll just chuck 'em! :eek

What do you think I should do?

*Looks at wall of boxed PC games*

I hate throwing away boxes. Still have boxes for my C64 games, and I weep for some of those which are now gone.

Yeah, you do know it's just the boxes, and not the games?

No idea on a price, I'll find out how much postage will be and get back to you.

I don't want much, if anything, for the boxes, just having them out of the way would be handy.

Put is this way...

Scans == releases

We have been very short on time lately and so have not been able scan stuff ourselves.
