Auction Store Marketplace, Buy and Sell Games
We'll be running a super-easy Auction Store where you can sell your own games on Saturday only. Your purchases get you some great games AND support local board gaming, since all collected fees go toward Congress of Gamers convention space rental.
You will email us a list of games you wish to sell in an Excel sheet. We'll send you back a PDF file with completed slips (here's a sample) you can print and attach to your games with painters tape. We'll have tape at the store, but sellers with many games generally attach slips in advance, so they can spend more time gaming and shopping.
There's a $.25 fee per game you enter, payable when you enter it into the Auction Store, whether or not it sells. You collect any unsold games and get your sales in cash between 4pm and 5pm. If you don't pick up your unsold games by 5pm, they will be moved to the CoG games library. If they are still in the library at 4pm Sunday, they will be considered donated to the Congress of Gamers, with our sincere thanks for supporting local gaming. Game submission may begin as early as 9:00am on Saturday.
Complete this spreadsheet, with an entry for each item you are selling, leaving lot numbers blank. if you add a hyperlink to the BGG listing for your game, any armchair shoppers can see in advance what a great game and great deal it is. eMail to us (at email@example.com) at least three days before the con. We'll assign lot numbers, send you a PDF with sales slips to painter-tape to your boxes, and merge your lot data into the master sell-list. Missed the submission deadline? Just download this form, complete it (leave lot # blank) and bring games with slips attached to the con on Saturday, along with your submission spreadsheet on a USB flash drive. Submission price is $.25 per item/lot. In addition to the $.25 listing fee, CoG will collect 10% of your total sales, rounded up to the nearest $.25. We really need lots of volunteers for the Auction Store. Volunteers get to sell for free! Here are some tips for sellers.
Here are the game submissions so far. Note that the convention director buys game collections and sells individual games on eBay and Amazon . If you would like any of those (over 1000 games) added to the Auction Store, just email him.

Buyers at the Fall 2019 session. Our gamers want more games! Our gamers NEED to sell more games!
Shelves of gaming goodness for sale at GREAT prices. If you have games that are not getting table time, perhaps it's time to rotate them out and add something new, while supporting the local gaming community AND avoiding high shipping costs.
