Auction Store

We’ll be running a super-easy Bring & Buy game store on Saturday only. All proceeds go to GCOM to help offset costs of the con space rental. Your sales get you CA$H and your purchases get you some great games at great deals, and both support local board gaming.

 

  • Game Check-in: 10AM – Noon
  • Store Opens / Early Price: Noon-2 PM
  • Middle Price: 2 PM – 4 PM
  • Late Price: 4 PM – 5 PM
  • Store Closes: 5 PM
  • Sellers paid out: ~6 PM

 

Buyers:

Bring cash! There’s an ATM a few blocks away, but it’s easier to bring enough cash to buy any great deals you see, items for sale by Canton Games, and con admission fee. Sales start at Noon, with price drops at 2 and 4. Sales end at 5.

See the list of games available for sale!

Sellers: You must download and fill out the Auction Store registration form and email it to auctionstore@gamesclubofmd.org . We will email you a set of Item Sheets which you will need to print, cut out, and attach to each game using painters tape or masking tape. We will have tape available at check-in, but we highly prefer that you print and attach these in advance.

 

  • There is a $0.25 registration fee per game that is non-refundable
  • An additional $0.25 processing fee per item will apply if your Item Sheets are not pre-printed. For example,
    • You email the Registration Form too late to get the printed Item Sheets, or
    • You bring your Auction Store Registration Form (above) to Game Days on a USB drive, or
    • You left them home.

    You should expect significant check-in delays as well.

  • If the Auction Store Registration Form (above) is not provided electronically, there will be an additional $0.25 processing fee per item

We will deduct these fees as part of the seller payout — no need to pay during game check-in.Prices must be set in whole dollar increments, and must drop by at least $1 from Early to Middle and from Middle to Late.

For games that sell, GCOM will take 10% of the sale price as a commission (rounded to the nearest $0.25 in the seller’s favor).

    For example, a game that sells for $21, GCOM will take $2 commission and $.25 registration fee, and give $18.75 to the seller.

For games that don’t sell at all, GCOM will charge an additional $0.25 processing fee (on top of the registration fee)If your balance is negative (because none of your games sell), you must pay the required fees to reclaim your games during payout time.

You must show your badge at payout time to claim your earnings and reclaim unsold games.

Game Days is accepting donations of games and gaming items to be sold to other gamers for $1 each after the Bring & Buy closes at 4pm; any games unsold after 5pm, will be available for FREE. If you have an unloved game, promo, book, etc. that is not worth marketing, but hate to send to the land fill, this is a great way to pass it on to your fellow gamers. De-clutter and get green while helping GCOM.
