Every year Endgame http://endgameoakland.com, the World's Greatest Gamestore located in Oakland, California, has a used game auction. Every year I sell about four games that no one on BGG wanted for trade, and since I'm selling junk I get about $10 in store credit. I also spend about $150-200 on twenty to thirty games, some portion of which ends up in the Endgame auction three years later.

In 2011 I took home a ton of games Games I bought at the Endgame 2012 Auction

2012 had a more modest haul Games I bought at the Endgame 2011 Auction

This year I was hoping to get rid of twenty of the twenty nine games I had in the auction, and buy maybe ten. I sold nine and bought twenty five. Oops. On the other hand eight of those I'm giving to friends and three or four more will go straight to the trade pile, so I think I only gained thirteen or so games.

My sales:

Saga - $4 - it's a good game, but I'm lukewarm on it. I'll play your copy.
Basari - $7 - same
Lord of the Rings: The Duel - $4.50 - Gandalf and Balrog as meeples!
East Front - $1.50 - I was hoping for more, but what can you do?
Lost Worlds - $8
Pit - $5 - a no-bell edition. I have another copy, of course.
Cheops - $8
Fight City - $4.50
Dragon Strike - $20

All in all not a bad year at all, but not a blow out. Definitely had a great time. I'm already looking forward to next year, and trying to figure out what to do with the games that didn't sell...

$5 - I thought I heard him say "Knizia". It's not. This turns out to be an okay dice game, but if you had the opportunity to play it you'd probably play something else. I'll probably give this away.

Can't believe I paid $4 for this. I can't believe someone bid me that high, for that matter. It's for a friend's daughter. Really. Already given away. She was happy. By coincidence she was wearing her Angry Birds Star Wars shirt when I gave this to her. You could spend $4 in less rewarding ways.

$10 in a bundle withTreasure Falls andThe Crow and the Pitcher. Yeah, that's a lot to pay. I think I was under the impression that all three games were from Uwe Rosenberg. It's not good to have your optimistic ears on at an auction. This was the edition of Klunker where the art is photo collages of gem stones. I was happy to get a different set of cards than you usually see, but once I saw them I was lukewarm. Still, I did want klunker! Fluss Piraten looks like it will be fun with Kids. Crow and Pitcher needs a new home...

$1 - for a friend, I already have a copy. This is actually a pretty good game for 1964, and you can't beat the price.

$6.50 - this is a neat little frustrating filler that I've wanted for a while, but I wanted a bargain. I got it! I've played a friend's copy, but now I can't wait to show this around to my family and other friends.

Knizia! $2.22! Looks like an okay game, but it may only last a few playings.

$18 - finally, something I really wanted and was willing to pay for. A good price, if not a steal. We'll get a lot of use out of this, I'm sure.

$4 - 1982 version. Not sure why I got this. You can never have too many Napoleonic wargames, though, nor enough Frank Chadwick games. All the counters are in one bag. Luckily sorting is fun. There was a player reference card in the box that says "(c) 1963 TAHGC". Oops.

$5 - I wanted this for a while, too, but only if I could get if for five bucks. Mission accomplished. My chess-playing friend has never heard of it. He's in for a surprise.

$1, or $3, or something. Good ol' Twixt. You wouldn't pay $20 for it, but for a dollar you'd buy it and have $20 worth of fun.

$5 - I've wanted to try some Victory Point Game products but didn't want to risk $20. I traded for the Boxer Rebellion game (haven't tried it yet), and dropped $5 on this. Having read the rules, it seems like another space war game. I'll take a closer look and read the cards, but at this point in my life and my collection a game has to have something more going for it than being yet another good game.
