Thanks to those who helped with gas money and cleared out some extra space at the same time!

Tuesday evening we welcomed the 5th tiny addition into our family: Honor Lloyd Roberts. He came in at 2lbs. 1oz. and 14". For any who may think that a bit odd, it's because he showed up 13 weeks and 2 days early! He's going to be in the NICU for several months, and while our insurance offers good coverage, his hospital is 90 minutes away. So, my wife is making multiple trips each week to bring him milk, say "Hi", make some physical contact and stay connected to our littlest one. Thus, my very first ever BGG auction! Here is my solemn pledge: The money earned from this auction shall ONLY be used for traveling expenses incurred by Honor's current stay far from home (e.g. gas, lodging, meals, etc.).

I had initially intended for these items to be traded or math-traded away at some point (thus acquiring more games in the process), but those plans are currently on hold and expanding my game collection will unfortunately have to wait until Christmas. If you feel my pain and want to offer a TRADE instead (so that I can obtain a few wishlist items without "buying" them), I'll consider those offers along with the bids.

Alrighty, enough background and info. Let's get to the guidelines for this auction:

d10-1 Auction ends Monday, Sept. 12 after my kids go to bed around 7:30pm Pacific. (This is to discourage sniping...because snipers can't strike while children are sleeping.)

d10-2 Auction is open to U.S. only, or to those with physical addresses here in the U.S., but all 50 states are included! ('Cuz AK and HI deserve some love!)

d10-3 Bids should be in whole dollar amounts with payments made through PayPal. (U.S. dollars, please.)

d10-4 Shipping will be USPS Flat Rate unless otherwise noted, and unless multiple items are won and a bigger box is needed to ship from zip 92311. (Then they will most definitely NOT be crammed into a flat rate box with 0.00025" of "packing stuff" feebly attempting to "protect" the contents. I'm happy to combine shipping and will do my best to keep the cost down.)

d10-5 All items will be sold through the BGG Marketplace to make sure that BGG doesn't cry. (We all know what tears do to its circuitry, right? "Unavailable?" "Temporarily Down?" Yeah, we've all seen that before and nobody ever wants to see it again. So let's do things the right way, shall we?)

d10-6 SPECIAL RULE #1: All BINs receive HALF-FREE SHIPPING! (Yes, that's the same as HALF-PRICE SHIPPING, but doesn't the word "free" just make you want to buy it right away?)

d10-7 SPECIAL RULE #2: All items come with a free MYSTERY...umm...SOMETHING. Maybe a dvd I don't want, maybe some stickers, maybe some candy, maybe some random whatsamadoodlethingy. It won't be broken and it won't be trash. ("Why?" you ask. "Because I'm a Youth Pastor. I get paid to have fun!" I also like free mystery thingies, and I can move some stuff out of the house, and this is also the 7th rule...what could be more fitting?)

d10-8 SPECIAL RULE #3: If you make a BIN that is MORE than the actual BIN price, I'll toss in a free card game. No, it won't be the most amazing game ever, and yes, it will be in proportion to the amount over the BIN which you bid. (Before you start commenting on the "free" aspect, please see Rule d10-6 and extrapolate your understanding from there. Thanks.)

d10-9 TRADE OFFERS: If you feel sorry for my self-imposed board game buying drought and want to offer a trade from my wishlist instead, that'd be great! I love trading! However, as I'm really trying to do my best to stay focused here, my having to pay for shipping has to get factored into the offer somehow. (But if you've got a NIS copy of Infinite City or Stone Age, I'm totally cool with that since that saves me on some upcoming birthday and Christmas shopping.)

d10-1d10-0 If you have any questions at all, please ask. I promise to reply promptly. (No, I'm not on BGG 24/7 in spite of what my wife says, but at the latest, you'll get an answer before I go to bed.)

Shipping: As cheaply and safely as I can ship about 6 lbs. of gaming goodness. (This one will depend on your location. GM me for details.)

SOLD! (...and a little extra, I see. Card game bonus will be included! Let me get the kids to bed and I'll get things rolling for you. Thanks!)

English, Descartes Editeur (as pictured)

I acquired this opened/unplayed in a math trade and after looking through the cards, knew that some people I played with might be a bit uncomfortable or even offended and I might offend myself. So, rather than run the risk, I'm offering it here. Box and contents are in perfect condition.

Also included in this auction is
San Juan: Alea, Rio Grande Edition
I played this once with my wife and once again with my parents. It's just not going to see much action around my house. Box and contents are pristine.

Opening Bid: $20
BIN: $30

Shipping: $11 (USPS Medium Flat Rate)

SOLD! (Thanks for the BIN! I will rummage through my horde of various trinkets and treasures to find something...umm...unique? to include with your games.)

English, Mayfair Revised Edition (as pictured)

My wife and I played this about 3 times, then twice again with the Knights & Merchants expansion. She decided it's too long for what it does only partly as well as the board game. Okie dokie, away it goes!

The cards and contents are in perfect condition. The box shows some minor shelf wear on the corners.

Also included in this auction is
The Settlers of Catan Card Game Expansions: Mayfair, Revised Edition
As mentioned, we only played with 1 of the included 7 expansions from this box, and only played it twice. So the rest remains pretty untouched and unplayed. Box and contents are both in great shape.

Opening Bid: $10
BIN: $22

Shipping: $11 (USPS Medium Flat Rate)

SOLD! (...and another bonus card game too! I'm going to have to buy some more card games pretty soon at this rate. Thanks for the bid. Details are en route.)

Third Edition

Box and contents are pristine. This game was only played twice.

Opening Bid: $10
BIN: $20

Shipping: Well, this "box" doesn't fit in a flat rate box very well, so I'll be sending these 4 lbs. as cheaply and safely as possible. (This one will depend on your location. GM me for details.)

Hasbro, American Edition

Box has a hole in the top and shows some wear, but is structurally solid, no blown corners or taped reinforcements. Contents are missing 3 phrase cards and one #2 white sticker. But it comes with an extra orange chip! Cards, board and pieces are not worn, but show they've been used. If I was grading this, I'd give it a solid 5.575 out of 10, and only because I'm a closet OCD freak.

Also included in this auction is
Fluxx (Version 3.0), Family Fluxx (1st Edition) and Christian Fluxx (with some blanks too)
The original game box is well worn (several backpack youth group outings). The family edition box is in great shape. The Christian expansion was just cards in shrink, so they're open, but have only been used once. The other cards are in great shape. They've been lovingly played quite a bit and are ready for a new home.

Also, also included in this auction is
Ka-Ching!: Gamewright 2nd Edition w/ Dr. Toy Winner sticker
My wife played this twice with me and "Meh"-ed it into the trade pile. It's in perfect condition.

Opening Bid: $20
BIN: $30

Shipping: $11 (USPS Medium Flat Rate)

English Mayfair Edition

Opened, but unplayed.

I read through the rules and quickly discovered that no one in my life would ever enjoy playing this with me. So, it's pretty much untouched except for being opened and looked at.

Opening Bid: $12
BIN: $22

Shipping: $11 (USPS Medium Flat Rate)

Edition pictured.

This one's been played several times and has some shelf wear, but the contents are in excellent shape.

Also included in this auction is
Therapy: Alary Games edition
Box has very minor shelf wear and contents are in perfect condition. I played this 5 or 6 times with my parents and my wife.

Also, also included in this auction is
The Original Food Lover's Trivia: we3chefs.com edition?
Yeah, my wife's idea. Also, my wife's decision to trade away after one play. Maybe this is for a different crowd? Anyway, everything is in excellent played-only-once shape!

Opening Bid: $15
BIN: $35

Shipping: Again, NOT fitting in a flat rate. So I'll send it to you as cheaply and safely as I can stick about 8 pounds of stuff into a box and send it to ya. (This one will depend on your location. GM me for details.)
