Well, there comes a time where a FLGS just can't hold on to all of their stock in store anymore. I'm fortunate enough to have a FLGS which carries a wide variety of new, old, popular, and less popular board games in stock. They probably carry well over 200 titles, but unfortunately just DON'T have the gaming customer base to liquidate all that stock. The current owner purchased the store from its previous owner a few years back, and some of the previous owners game stock (or most of the previous owners game stock) hasn't moved out of the store.

It has come to the point where my FLGS has literally run out of room for new games, and is sitting on a loss from all of the old games that don't sell locally. I'm talking about some good titles too! Wanting to help out, I offered to try and move some of his old titles for him outside of the store in order to help him recuperate some funds and be able to carry new titles.

That said, this list will be an auction of the few titles he has already separated out for me. This may or may not continue based on the success of the auctions. He isn't looking to make a fortune here, but would just like to recoup some funds. He is only looking to make back his investment and perhaps a small profit. Certain games, for example those which are out of print, may be asked for at a higher price. Note, the store is NOT in danger of closing...I'm just trying to help out.

Game auctions will be held open until May 31st at 11:59pm, or until the Buy it Now prices are met.

[/u]The Rules:[/u]

1. Bids should be in the form of a comment under the items listing. Please only bid in whole dollar amounts.

2. The auction will close on Monday May 31st at 11:59PM.

3. Shipping is available only within the USA. Exceptions may be made by PRIOR agreement.

4. Shipping fees will be at cost. This includes the minimal cost of packing material, as well as whatever shipping method you choose.

5. Games and such will be shipped by your choice of USPS Parcel Post, USPS Priority Mail, or FedEx Ground (this is often cheapest if sent to a business address).

6. Local pick-ups are welcome.

7. Minimum prices are set as a guide (and in some cases as an actual minimum). These are the payments we would like to receive in order to recover the COST that the store has invested. For the most part (save for OOP games), minimum prices see very little to no profit for my FLGS.

8. I will take OFFERS below the minimum set price. This does not mean I will accept the offers (however I may), and all such choices are left to my discretion.

9. Buy it Now prices are listed for all games. If a Buy it Now price is met, that item's auction ends immediately and the item is sold to the winning bidder. Shipping will occur shortly thereafter.

10. Boardgame purchases will be made through the BGG Marketplace for BGG commission and feedback.

11. Payment may be made by Paypal

12. Bid! Now!

Debate This! is the hot new board game that celebrates the art of lively banter and creative embellishment. IN a test of words and wit, players debate topics ranging from social norms to sports, pop culture to politics, relationships to personal behavior. During each round, teams square off to deliver the most cleaver, creative, entertaining and persuasive argument to support their position and win points from the independent judge. The judge likes to be amused, entertained and enlightened. More entertainment, more points. Th first team to cross the finish line wins the game. But it's the debates that will have people talking the next day. When family and friends get together, Debate This is the game that gives them all a chance to speak their mind.

You live in DOGVILLE, and you're a junkyard dog! The object? To be the first pooch on the block to bury 4 bones in your back-yard. In order to find the bones, you must scavenge from trash cans, beg at restaurants, and generally behave like a "dog about town".

An Intriguing new game of domain building by the creator of "The Settlers of Catan"

The King shall return...

Before he does, the realm falls into anarchy and chaos. The lords of the kingdom struggle to improve their place and standing. New borders are drawn, and expanded through strength of arms and subtle maneuver. Each duke seeks to establish a claim over the most valuable parts of the kingdom before the king finally returns...

In the dark of the Middle Ages, control of the land was the key to wealth and power. Can you control enough territory to become the most prestigious duke before the king's return.

New in Shrink Condition! Cheaper than online retailers!

Minimum bid: $22.00

Buy it Now:: $38.00

OUT OF PRINT!!!!

"I'm the Boss" is a game of deal making and negotiation, where you are an investor trying to make a deal. Through intelligent negotiations, temporary alliances, and cutthroat bargaining you will rake in millions, But watch out for the other investors at your bargaining table who meddle in your affairs and try to take over your deals. As the boss, you stand to gain the most, but you can find yourself quickly cut out of a deal. In the end, the winner is the investor with the most money."
