There have even been some recent reprints of the game that have been made to look like the old versions of the game. I think the value will mostly be reliant on how old the game truly is. People that are just interested in playing the game can buy one of the more recent versions of the game which don’t seem to sell for that much. If the game is truly from the 1890s or the early 1900s I can see quite a bit of value as games that old are valuable due to the fact that not many of them are still in existence. If the game is that old and is in pretty good shape for its’ age I think you could get quite a bit for it. To get the most for the game though you would need to find a board game collector that is really interested in the age of the game.
If the game currently has a listing on Amazon, Amazon is probably the place where you are going to get the most for games. The games have to have all of the pieces though to be sold on Amazon and it could take quite a while to find a buyer. You should be able to sell the games quicker on eBay but you generally get less for board games on eBay than you would other places.
Board Game Geek has a lot of board game collectors so you could try to find people who are interested in specific games. Kingmaker is a 1974 war game about the War of the Roses which took place in 1400s England. While Ariel made the original version of the game in 1974, two years later it was picked up by Avalon Hill who was well known for making war games. Kingmaker has a lot of the things that you are looking for in a valuable board game.

First it is a war game which probably means that it didn’t have a huge print run. These types of games were pretty niche since not a lot of people want to play a game about war in 1400s England. The game was also picked up by Avalon Hill which means that it is a pretty well regarded game.
The game is actually well received by the board game community as evidenced by Board Game Geek. The game also has not had a recent reprint since the latest version of the game was released in 1988. Your copy having all of the pieces is also important since these older war games came with a lot of small pieces which are really easy to lose so it is hard to find a complete copy.

I will say that your copy of the game being one of the original copies along with the other memorabilia should add to the game’s value. If you were to sell the item I would definitely detail these parts of the game as they should make the item sell for more. As far as value it is emulator games going to be kind of hard to judge. There have been quite a few versions of the game created over the years.
The VHS tape would occasionally interrupt the game with a “creepy” creature directing the players to take various actions. If you want to learn more about the series check out our review of Atmosfear. As far as where to sell the games I have three recommendations.

Without an exact age or any sales information I can’t really give you an exact value for the game though. On eBay they don’t sell for as much which isn’t that surprising. Board games have never sold as well on eBay as they do on Amazon. This is partially due to sellers not being patient and trying to sell things as quickly as possible. A lot of these valuable board games have a particular audience so it takes time to find the right buyer. For those of you who are unaware of the series, the Nightmare/Atmosfear series was a line of board games made in the early 1990s. In the game players would move around a gameboard trying to finish their objectives while a VHS tape played in the background.
