BACKGROUND: On September 4th, the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, suffered an earthquake that measured 7.1 on the Richter scale.

The aftershocks are still hitting, as recently as this afternoon.

Fortunately, nobody was killed - due in a large part because the main earthquake struck at 4:35am local time, when most of the inner city streets were empty. Nonetheless, the city is well and truly having to rebuild, with an estimated insurance and rebuild cost of NZ$4Bn.

New Zealand's largest board game distributor didn't get by unaffected, either:

CAUSE: The games in this list are all from Christchurch distributors. They're all brand new and sealed, and most of them are undamaged, but they're all heavily discounted.

All profits from this auction will go to one of the many charitable Christchurch earthquake appeals as a simple way for us fellow gamers to give generously.

STARTS: Immediately.

ENDS: Last bids will be accepted no later than midnight (NZT) on November 4th, with a 15 minute re-bid extending each item. This end date will mark two months since the earthquake struck.

SHIPPING: Freight for all items will cost NZ$7 nationwide.

Items can be packed together, so if you're after more than one game, let me know, and I'll let you know the amended freight price.

If you're in the Tauranga area, we can arrange collection for free.

We can send games overseas, but please contact us for a quote.

OTHER RULES: Please only bid in full dollar amounts and in NZD currency. (Go to xe.com for exhange rates if you're bidding from overseas.)

Payment can be made via Paypal, bank transfer, or cash.

BoardGameGeek will be recompensed for allowing us to use them as a vehicle for this auction.
