Why an Auction? Ever since its inception, WBC has been about competition and playing games without the distractions of such things as flea markets and seminars. Why change now? Well, we haven’t. By extending WBC to six full days and holding the auction during the hours preceding the start of WBC-proper on Tuesday evening, we get to have our cake and eat it too without detracting from tournaments.

It allows us to provide a service to our members who want to sell or buy long-out-of-print games at what is perhaps the largest gathering of the players of those games on the planet without having to go the eBay route of shipping and sight unseen purchases. What better place to acquire these games than amongst our annual reunion of friends at WBC in an entertaining auction without missing any tournaments?

Staff: In 2007, welcome back auctioneers Bruce Reiff, Ken Gutermuth and Keith Hunsinger and the entire CABS crew for another splendid and entertaining afternoon of buying and selling boardgames.

WBC offers an expanded Auction Store in 2007. It opens at 9:30 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. It’s like a flea market, except sellers do not need to supervise the selling because BPA runs the entire shebang to allow you to pay attention to the Auction or play games. It increases the number of items the BPA can sell, while providing a cost-effective way and efficient way to sell lower-value items. Plus, everyone has the chance to accomplish more “shopping” in less time, since it will be possible to peruse the Store while the Auction is ongoing within earshot and bidding range. Only items listed at $30 or lower may be listed in the Auction store. It is not possible to pre-register games for the Auction Store, but you should bring completed Auction Store Seller Registration Form (download in Word or PDF) and Auction Store Item Sheets (download in Word or PDF) when you register items on site. IMPORTANT: Review the details of both the auction and auction store before deciding where to submit your items.

Advance Registration: We are no longer accepting Lot pre-registrations for this year's Auction because the maximum of 550 Lots has been reached. Exceptions will be made for collectible items; contact the head auctioner at BDRgames@aol.com in advance for authorization. All pre-registered Lots will all be listed on the Registered Lots page before the convention. NOTE: You may still bring items for sale in the Auction Store on Tuesday without pre-registration, but those items have a top selling price of $30.

Refer to the key for an explanation of abbreviations. Anyone who will be selling items at the auction should review the Auction Seller page. Anyone interested in buying items at the auction should review the Auction Buyer page for policies and procedures.
