I love trying new games. Every week we go to the game store and try demo games while my kids play Pokemon. I order from Amazon, BGG, and buy locally (stores and craigslist). Even with the constant stream of new games to try I still can't get enough, but recent life events have reduced my game budget pretty severely.

Following the example of

and others before, I'd like to run a reverse auction...for a broke addict. Everyone has games they don't want and I want to try them! I would like to buy a lot (or two?) of games from you at $2 per game plus shipping.

Rules:

List items you want to sell to me in the Geeklist below. Only one Geeklist item per entry, but the entry can/should contain multiple items. In the entry, list items you are willing to sell to me under the following rules.

1. Items should include Board or Card games (no Role-Playing items please). Items should be mostly complete/playable, but I recognize that at these prices that quality will vary. For an example of how to list items, see entry #1, a Bogus entry by me. Limit the total number of items in your entry to 15 or less. Only one entry per user, please.

1.5. Games should have a minimum player requirement of two players. There are some wonderful 3-5 player games out there, but it's rare that we play games with more than just two in our house.

2.
Items that cannot be listed include RPGs, video games, virtual items (No PDFs, etc.), DVDs, CDs, etc. I'd like to buy games, not books or jigsaw puzzles. Your entry should contain mostly (80% or more) items listed on BGG.

3. At the end of the auction/contest (ends sometime on February 1, 2013) , I will choose one entry as the winner. I will agree to purchase that lot of items at the cost of $2 US per item plus $12 US for shipping (United States, 98007). The winner agrees to sell the lot exclusively to me on these terms. The seller (you) pays for shipping in an agreeable manner. If you can ship for less than $12, good for you, you get to pocket the excess. All payments will be sent via paypal.

4. Auction open to US residents only, unless you're international and really want to ship something and get only $12 in return. I have nothing against other countries, just their shipping rates.

I reserve the right to purchase additional lots beyond the first winner, but can only guarantee one. All sales will take place through the BGG Marketplace to ensure that the site gets the appropriate 3% commission.

An example of how your auction submission should look is posted in the first entry of this list.

This entry is an example only!

This offer includes the following games:
Sleeping Queens
Archaeology
Family Fluxx
Boom-O
Drive
Hike
Ka-Ching!
Snatch
Rage

Here the cost would be $18 (9 games x $2) + $12 (shipping) = $30 total.

Note: I already own all the games listed above. I realize that I can't be too picky with a reverse-auction like this though, so duplicates won't be a huge factor in my decision of a winner.

OK, I'll bite. I've tried to trade this lot in Math Trades as "Bunch of CCG's in a Medium Flat-rate Box", but it never traded. Perhaps it will fit here better.

Here's the pitch: OK, I know what you're thinking. Why would I want a bunch of CCG's in a box? Well, ignore the first "C" in CCG for a moment. Would you like a bunch of Card Games in a box? Most or all of these games are "dead" CCGs, so if you end up liking any of them, it shouldn't be hard to get more of it. Most of these were acquired to play as GNOEWPs with a similarly inclined friend. We enjoyed them, even the ones we hated. Think of it as several semi-disposable hours of fun in one box! And after that, it quickly and easily transforms into a box of kindling.* Or a box full of bookmarks. Or really small posters. Or ammunition for Gambit, from the X-men. Or cards to give your kids when they want to play your grown-up games.

*Warning: I have no idea what sort of fumes are released by burning CCGs cards. Do not actually attempt this unless the alternative is freezing to death.

Condition: Varied. All have been played once or twice, with the exception of the 7th Sea decks, and one X-Files deck, which are sealed.

Contents:
You will receive all of the following, packed in a USPS medium flat rate box:
2 starter decks of 7th Sea Collectible Card Game
(assorted factions)

4 starter decks of Doomtrooper


4 starter decks of X-Files


1 2-player starter pack of Young Jedi CCG


2 starter packs of City of Heroes CCG


2 starter packs of Sim City: The Card Game


2 starter decks of Simpsons Trading Card Game
(Homer and Bart)

1 2-player starter pack of Pirates of the Caribbean: Trading Card Game
(Commodore Norrinton vs. Pintel and Raggetti)

2 starter decks of Hecatomb



By your pricing, that's 9*$2+$12=$30.

So that would come to an even $20

I appreciate the sprite of this geeklist. Only ONE of this package is available.
Here are my offering. Everything is NEW unless otherwise noted and some are Ding and Dent (shelfworn, torn shrink, rip packaging etc) inventory, but nothing that would effect the components .

Valkenburg Castle


Complete set of 3 OctoPi: (unbox, to save space, would include them, flatten, if there is shipping space)
Bed of Pearls

Sink or Swim

Doubloon Dippity


Relationship Tightrope


Da Vinci's Challenge Card Game


Golden Compass Playing Card Tin


May ADD a few more title before your closing time, as I am still gauging what would fit into a flat rate box.
