Thanks for checking this out - I'll give you the short version.

My family (wife & two kids, ages 4 & 5) and I are flying 1/2 way around the world to work in the fight against human trafficking.

We're leaving Pennsylvania, USA and flying to Chiang Rai, Thailand on September 20th.

You may be wondering what all this has to do with gaming... we'll I can't exactly bring my game collection with me. And storage units aren't free... so a bulk of games must go.

I've given away a few already, and lent out some more (possibly permanently). A few are to dear to me/to hard to find again to part with, but many more are on the "chopping block".

So, for those of you interested I'll describe in the comments section what I am going through while doing this process... but the geek list section is reserved for the auction!!!

Auction: This will run until Wednesday September 11th, at 11:59 pm BGG time. Shipping is not included - the cost will be whatever it actually costs me (calculate from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania - Zipcode 17050 to wherever you live). I haven't shipped international before so I'm not sure how much harder that is. There are reserves on some items and a few close friends are possibly getting back to me on some they want - just so you're not surprised if there is a change or two during the bidding process. (To clarify, if the reserve is not met there is a good chance I won't sell the game. My hope is to put money towards the work we'll be doing, not just axe a handful of games :-) ).

All money raised will go to pay for our set up expenses as we move. If you're interested in more about what we'll be doing to combat human trafficking, etc here is a link: http://www.gotonations.org/mayeskijam

Also, if you want to check out my game collection and suggest other games I should auction off, feel free to add it - if it goes for a great price I'll let it go.

I'd appreciate any thumbs you add to the list or friends you send the list to - if for nothing else than raising awareness about the travesty of human trafficking in our day and age.

God bless and happy bidding!
Joel

** NOTE ** Ok, I'm back. I apparently didn't miss much action on the geeklist. As noted any and all purchases from this auction that go through will go through the BGG Marketplace and/or the 3% to BGG will be calculated and remunerated accordingly. Thanks and happy bidding!

EDIT: Time for end of auction has changed to 1 minute earlier - to remove any confusion.

UPDATE: I'll review the items/prices below and see what meets the reserves I've set and contact the winners. Thanks again for the encouragement/contacts and bidding!

All components are punched and separated in Gerber bins (10) and ziplock bags. Has one "dark/light" token missing, but the missing token is easily replaced by any small cube or disk, as its only on a player's sheet. Also comes with some player aid sheets.

All components and in great condition (only played a few times). I do know its OOP so that is making the decision on letting this go difficult!

Everything is here and in good condition. (I did write some notes in the "House Rules" blank section of the rule book for a suggested variant from BGG).

This is an updated version from 2006 (Book Shelf Games). There is some crinkling on one corner of the box (there when I purchased it), but the components are in good shape inside. Has a magnetic "book cover" box. Only played once, almost all of the scoring sheets are there as well.

Ok, so I am a game design "enthusiast". I've probably designed around 300 games and play tested about 50 of them. (I did upload two onto BGG - both which still need some adjustments to refine/improve.) In the past my MO has been to design until I find its not "perfect" and then move on to something more promising -- but that's no longer the case. I've been focusing on a great pocket sized card game that has proven both unique and fun in play testing.

Why all this preamble you say? Well the above mentioned card game is awaiting graphic design and from there publication. The winning bid will receive the prototype version of the game in PDF format when the first run of graphic design is finished (hopefully mid-october). Its only 6 sheets (94 cards) plus a few pages of rules. If the bid is over $15 I can include cutting and shipping. (If you wish to not wait that long the basic black & white, non-graphic version is available now).

About the game: Its a bidding/action text style space combat game for 2-4 players that plays in 10 rounds and takes around 45 minutes. The game can be played on a table or "incognito" without a table - great for such events as weddings or family reunions.

An almost 3' x 3' card stock board for a space game design with rotating planets. Two years rolled up in storage will probably not be kind to this, so its probably better to let it find another home.
