I am trying very hard to clear out some space so that the games I own AND play have ample space to spread out their little chits and wooden pieces to feel all comfortable and such.

I'm also trying to recoup some money so I have a bit extra for Christmas, which seems so far off, yet will be here before you know it. I am on the fence about doing BGG Secret Santa (I really want to), and The Wife looks at me suspiciously whenever I mention it. I think I could win her over if I can move some or all of this stuff, so here goes...


GENERAL RULES

d10-1 All items will be listed with their condition, a reserve, and a Buy it Now amount (if there is one). I reserve the right to not accept a bid below the - ahem - reserve price. Someone posting a BIN will automatically win the game at that point. Bids must be posted in whole dollar amounts.

d10-2 I will list an estimated shipping cost for each item. Note that this may actually be cheaper or more expensive than the actual cost to ship the item, obviously dependent on location of buyer, shipping options chosen by buyer, and other factors. This estimate is only that - an estimate, and in no way represents an actual cost. All shipping costs will be calculated AFTER the end of the auction.

d10-3 International bidders are welcome, but be aware that shipping will cost you plenty. See SHIPPING below.

d10-4 All sales will be completed through BGG Marketplace so that BGG gets their cut. See PAYMENT below.

d10-5 This auction will run through Wednesday November 16. To encourage prevent sniping the auction will end sometime between 6pm and 10pm EST.

d10-6 If you must retract a bid please be courteous - use strike-through text on the original bid and geekmail me with the reason. I will refuse to do any transactions with a bidder that fails to follow this rule. No trading. No items on my want lists in math trades. No auctions. Nothing. Please be courteous. Please?

PAYMENT

1 A listing will be created in the BGG Marketplace under my username. Buyers must purchase the item within 48 hours of either choosing the Buy It Now option or the close of the auction, whichever is earliest.

2 I will send an invoice including the payment amount and shipping. Buyer agrees to send payment no later than 48 hours after I send the invoice.

3 Buyer agrees to pay for any fees associated with Paypal, typically 3.9% of the total price (sale price + shipping).

4 For any items with a reserve and a buy-it-now, I will pay associated Paypal fees if the buyer chooses "Buy-It-Now". So save yourself 3.9% and buy it. Now.

5 If the cost of your purchases (excluding shipping) is less than $30 I will accept Amazon GC in the total amount (including shipping) as payment so that we may avoid Paypal fees altogether. This is optional, and a buyer may choose to use Paypal if they wish regardless of purchase amount. Points 3 and 4 would then apply.

SHIPPING

1 Buyer pays all shipping costs, to be calculated after the close of the auction once the buyer has "purchased" the item in the BGG marketplace. Local pickup is fine, although I do not have a car, and the places in NYC that I can meet you are limited. Picking up from my neighborhood is the best, but if I must meet you someplace other than near my home or near my job, I will charge a $5.00 "Handling" fee to cover the cost of my subway ride, as I do not have an unlimited metro card.

2 Buyer agrees to pay for delivery confirmation, which is to protect both the buyer and myself. This is typically free if shipping via priority mail paid online, but if using cheaper shipping (parcel post, for example) then buyer must pay to add delivery confirmation.

3 I ship from 11209. I will ship items via USPS. I will try to ship via cheapest shipping option available. If items are not sent priority flat-rate, buyer agrees to pay for a suitable box, or agrees to wait patiently until I can find a suitable box for free.

4 If you buy multiple items I will gladly combine shipping, although as per #3 above, I will need a suitable box for shipping multiple items.

5 If you require a different shipping method than USPS Priority, buyer agrees to pay all associated costs. This includes requiring Fed-Ex, international delivery, or boxes wrapped in gold-foil. Note that international shipping is not cheap. I recommend checking www.usps.com and searching for international rates before committing to buying. I did just ship a game to Australia, and have shipped to Canada, so I'm not opposed to it, just know it's expensive.

6 I will allow the buyer to choose the size of boxes for some games that will snugly fit in a smaller box, but might be damaged if the USPS mishandles it. In those cases the buyer may choose to have it shipped in a larger box for more padding and protection. As per #3 above, the default is cheapest shipping. If the buyer does not inquire about shipping, I will assume cheapest shipping is acceptable. In cases where the buyer opts for the smaller, cheaper shipping, I will not be held liable for any damages that occur.

If you have any questions please ask me. I'll try to answer them as quickly as possible.

Thanks for looking, and happy bidding!

Condition: New in shrink

Reserve: $45

Buy-it-Now: $60

This will fit in a medium flat rate, but it's a snug fit. Unfortunately it's too long for the large flat rate box, but I can scrounge up a larger box and ship Parcel Post (or priority) if you want.


SOLD. cool

Condition: New in shrink

Reserve: $7

Buy-it-Now: $12

This is an oddly-shaped game. I think it might just fit in a medium flat rate box. I don't have any of those at the moment, but worst-case scenario the game is very light, so if I could find a cheap box big enough, shipping parcel post or even priority (depending on where you live in relation to NYC) shouldn't be too much.

Shipping Estimate 10.50

Condition: Like new. Punched and bagged. I got this in a mystery box. Maybe you'll be more motivated to play it than I am. There is a small puncture (almost un-noticeable) in the back of the box, but it doesn't affect the usability of the box.

Reserve: $5

Buy-it-Now: $12

This should be fine in a medium flat-rate box.

Condition: Like new, with the exception it is missing 3 red boats. It came to me that way, and I contacted Uberplay (out of business) and Tanga. Neither had replacements. It shouldn't affect gameplay, and you can always sub in red pieces from another game. Otherwise the game is in great condition. My wife and I played it but we should have not played it with just two. But the one play was enough to convince my wife she didn't like it, so here it is.

Reserve: $5

Buy-it-Now: $12

This should be fine in a medium flat-rate box.

Condition: Used. I'm missing 3 gray one unit soldiers. Everything else is there. The box has some dishing and shelf wear, but looks pretty good for being from 1999. The box is as pictured, except it's in English only. But the board is in two languages. I don't understand it, but that's the way it is. French and English. Whatever. Keep in mind this edition has the pimped out canons, horse riders, and soldiers. Pretty sweet!

Reserve: $10

Buy-it-Now: $20

This game is big, and won't fit in a flat-rate box. I can ship Parcel Post if it's cheaper.

Shipping Estimate: 14.00 for priority, less for parcel post

Nintendo DS Lite Bundle

Condition: According to Amazon the DS itself would "acceptable" since I don't have original packaging. But I think it's in good to like-new condition. I've had screen and cover protectors on the system since it was opened. There are no scratches on the system. Trade-in value is $15 on amazon, even though a "like-new" with the box is $50. I think that's closer to the real value of mine.

All games are in fantastic condition and include original packaging with any manuals they came with.

Reserve: $75

Buy-it-Now: $125


Bundle includes the following:

1. Nintendo DS Lite Cobalt/Black as pictured without original packaging/manuals

2. Blue cloth cover/case with extra stylus

3. Blue super cool official Nintendo DS earphones

4. Wall Charger

5. Car Charger

6. Extra screen protectors

7. Mario Kart DS

8. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

9. Professor Layton and the Curious Village

10. Left Brain/Right Brain

I can provide pictures of items upon request.

"Family" Game Pick-A-Pack

Don't let that happen to these "family" games. Give them a good, proper home - one that doesn't smell like rotten chicken and moldy bread.

1 Games, unless otherwise noted, are used but in good condition.

2 This is a BUY-IT-NOW only auction.

3 All sales are first-come first-served. I will try to update the list as games are sold (if any are sold). Sales are limited to available games. Games are considered unavailable once someone has stated their intent to buy it - not once I cross the game off the list.

4 To buy a pack of games add a comment to this item stating which games you would like. I will quote you a price as soon as possible on the lot, but you can probably figure it out (see below).

5 There will be a number next to each game name in parenthesis. For example: (1) "Jenga". That number is the point value of the game. Packs and prices are determined by point value, not quantity of games.

6 Prices for packs games are as follows:

1 point = $6.00
3 points = $15.00
5 points = $22.00
8 points = $26.00
Buy all Games at once? - $33.00

The Games

(2) Blokus (Box shows moderate shelf wear and dishing of the front cover)
(1) Rummikub
(2) Scattergories
(1) Jenga
(1) Set (New, In Shrink)
(1) Mad Gabs
(2) Apples to Apples (early edition) with Expansion Box 3


I can provide photos or better descriptions of games upon request.

I will cover Paypal fees for any Game pick-a-pack purchases (say that five times fast!) that are 3 points or higher.

DVD/Game Pick-A-Pack

1 All DVDs and games are used, but well cared for. They include the case, and the games include any manuals that came with the game (Except the two NES games. Those are for just the cartridge). If you need to know which edition it is, geekmail me.

2 This is a BUY-IT-NOW only auction.

3 All sales are first-come first-served. I will try to update the list as DVDs and games are sold (if any are sold). Sales are limited to available DVDs and games. DVDs and games are considered unavailable once someone has stated their intent to buy it - not once I cross the DVD or game off the list.

4 To buy a pack of DVDs and/or games add a comment to this item stating which DVDs and/or games you would like. I will quote you a price as soon as possible on the lot, but you can probably figure it out (see below).

5 There will be a number next to each DVD or game name in parenthesis. For example: (1) "The Departed". That number is the point value of the DVD or game. Packs and prices are determined by point value, not quantity of DVDs and/or games.

6 Prices for packs of DVDs and/or games are as follows:

1 point = $3.00
5 points = $13.00
8 points = $19.00
10 points = $22.00
15 points = $28.00
Between 15 and 30 points = $28.00 + $1.00 per additional point over 15 points
Greater than 30 points = $43.00 + $.50 per additional point over 30 points
Buy all DVDS at once? - $50.00
Buy all remaining Games at once? - $25.00
Buy all remaining DVDs and Games at once (please do this!) - $75.00 plus free shipping.

The DVDs

(1) 50 First Dates
(1) Arlington Road
(1) Bad Boyz II
(1) Big Fish
(1) Big Lebowski
(1) Boondock Saints
(1) Center Stage
(2) Chappelle Show Season 1

The Games

(1) RBI Baseball (NES)
(1) Lee Trevino's Fighting Golf (NES)
(2) Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock (Wii)
(1) Guitar Hero Controller (Wii)
(2) Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Wii)
(2) No More Heroes (Wii)
(2) Rayman Raving Rabbids 2
(2) Mercenaries (Xbox)

(1) Oddworld: Munch's Odyssey (Xbox)
(1) Midway Arcade Treasures 2 (Xbox)
(1) NFL Street 2 (Xbox)
(1) NCAA Football 2005 (Xbox)


Pack prices will be based on "chunks". For example if you want 13 points you'll pay somewhere between $22 and $28. No worries, though - I'm a mathematician, so I'll make sure it's a fair price given the pricing structures. (it would be $25.60 if you're curious - 3-fifths of the way from the 10 point to the 15 point pack, and 3-fifths of the price difference of $6.00 is $3.60)


I will cover Paypal fees for any DVD pick-a-pack purchases (say that five times fast!) that are 10 points or higher.
