Hi all,

This is my first BGG auction and I'm getting rid of some great stuff because I need to raise some capital for next month. My wife is undergoing surgery and will be out of work for 4-6 weeks, during which time she won't be going to work and hence will not be getting a paycheck. I have some great titles here as well as some family and cult favorites. All are in great condition if not still in shrink. Please help me out by taking these off my hands and helping me to provide for my wife and three girls while my lovely bride is recovering from her operation. This auction will end on 6/18 at 11 PM.

The standard rules apply:
1. Please only bid in $1 increments
2. No sniping. Auctions will be extended by 1 hour for each bid made within the last hour of the auction.
3. I will list the condition of the items as best as I can describe, and provide the accurate version/picture when possible.
4. If you you're not sure about something, please ask.
5. I will charge actual shipping costs for all items and will ship USPS or UPS ground, your choice.
6. I may add a buy it now option later in the week to spur bidding if it there's not much activity.

I don't have Geek Gold to offer you, but you have the gratitude of my family and I for helping us out in our time of need. Thanks!

As a reward, I will send a random game to the highest collective bidder (i.e. the highest sum of all bids made by an individual). That means you might win the game even though you don't win an auction. I will also send a random game to one of the people who thumbs this list, chosen at random.

Edit:As a thank you for your generous support, all of the GG tipped to me in this auction will be evenly distibuted among the bidders of the auction at a rate of 1 share of GG per bid. The exception is the game winner for highest sum of all bids, as they will already have their reward. Also, I will be adding buy it now options to the entries, should you want to lock in your chance at a game. Thanks again for your generous support of my wife and our family!

NEW ITEM ADDED!!! Item #20, Bull in a China Shop has been added to the list.

This auction is closed.

I will notify winners of auctions and bonus winners within the next few days. Notifications will include the cost of goods and shipping and my PayPal ID to send money to. I will ship by USPS or UPS, your choice, and I will provide a quote for each.

6/18/2010 I am compiling the shipping costs as a write this and will be sending each winner an e-mail which will inlude: the games they won, the cost of the games, my PayPal account and a request for a shipping address to ship to. Once I have the winner's address I will send a total cost of goods as well as two possible shipping costs, one through USPS and one through UPS. The winner may choose which method to ship by and send the appropriate funds to my PayPal account with a note as to which shipping method they are requesting. I will ship your items within 1-3 days of receiving payment.

Winners of the bonus games are:
ariesariesaries for the thumb lottery
kiki kiki for the highest sum of all bids by an individual

I will likely be holding a second auction in the coming weeks once I get this first batch shipped off. I have several more games to be auctioned, many of which are new in shrink.

Crazy chaotic robot action in this AH classic, and yes, it's new in shrink. My version is similar to the one pictured here (couldn't find the exact image) but the Avalon Hill logo is different. The game has a 2005 copyright, if that helps. Soft Reserve set at $25.

This popular OOP mafia game involves stabbing, shooting, and explosive birthday cakes. What more could you want for family game night? Well, maybe it's not a game to play with the younger kids, but this is a lot of fun. The game is the french version with English rules included. The game is in good condition, with a fair amount of shelf wear but no broken corners or edges. Soft reserve set at $17

This was a donation to the list by the lovely and very kind StarSpangledGirl. The item is in very good condition. If you win this item, you may PayPal me the funds for the game and PayPal her the funds for shipping (be sure to give her your address). If someone could help me with how to list her profile info here, that might make this easier as well as provide a spotlight on one of our generous members here at BGG.

There is no reserve for this item.

Buy it now for $7
