In continuing trying to get to under 300 games, I'm putting more games up for auction. I've let my game collection grow at a fair pace since I started playing games about 10 years ago. But, two years ago I had triplets and they've taken more and more of my space from me until now I most start to thin the herd a bit by offering up some of my less played games for auction. I'm not sure anyone will really want some of these games, so I'm making a bid of zero legal. On a couple I won't take a money bid, I will only give it away. The item will state it's status.

Although this is my seventh sell off list, so hopefully I've worked out the kinks of selling games to people all around the world.

Here's the rules specifically:

a) If you want the game, but aren't willing to pay for it, just give the item a thumb and you will be considered if no money is offered for it. If no one offers any money for the game, I will select one of the people at random from those that thumbed the item. I will use the die rolling feature built into the site, and count starting with the top of the list and work my way down.

b) Each item will have a minimum amount you must bid before you bump anyone who is willing to thumb for a free game. If you want to bid this amount, comment on the item stating how much you would like to bid. Once at least the minimum bid is received, the item is up for a normal auction, highest bidder wins. If the winner of the auction reneges, I will take the next lower bidder. If there is none, I will give it away per the rules above.

c) If you have any questions about a specific game's condition or the game in general, please comment and I will answer.

d) Buyers will pay for the actual shipping cost, even people that get the game with a bid of zero. This is open to anyone in the world, granted that I can actually go to the post office and mail this package without anything more substantial than filling out a customs form. Note that some countries have very unreliable postal services, and I take no responsibility that the package actually gets to you, if I provide a receipt that proves I got the package to the post office. Also note that shipping outside of the U.S. can be very costly. Figure an average game probably weighs 4 pounds or so (packed). My postal code is 98072. Please us http://ircalc.usps.gov/ to determine if you can/will pay for shipping. Last auctions I sent a few games to Norway and Singapore and they made it. Hooray for postal systems!

e) I am going to use the timestamp of the bid to determine if it made it in before the cut off. Also, if there is a bid made in the last half-hour of the auction, I will extend the auction. Basically, there must be no new bid for 1 hour after the last bid if this sniping rule is in play.

f) If I call for a soft reserve, I will probably not give the game away with a bid of zero. It doesn't mean you can't give it a thumb.

g) I am open to trading games to get what I've put up for auction, although I really have to be tempted. I am trying to get my collection smaller. I will never retract something I've put out as only a giveaway item, once people are giving me thumbs in hopes of a free game it's a random die roll. So, if it has a soft reserve feel free to make me a side offer.

If you are willing to get to the Seattle area, or live there, I absolutely can meet and give you the games.

If you bid highest/get chosen for multiple items, I will try and combine them together to get the best shipping price.

This auction closes at 6 PM (Pacific) on November 20th. Good luck, and I hope you find something you like. I take paypal, check or money order to pay for anything won in an auction. I will put the items that were won up on the marketplace at the price it was won at. After that, we'll use the marketplace to finish the deal. If you get a free item, I'll just send geekmail with the shipping cost to you.

Note:
I've had a few people back out after getting picked to get the game for free. Please note that shipping most games is near 10 bucks, sometimes it can be a bit more. Please don't thumb on an item unless you think that 10 dollars shipping a free game to you isn't a crazy amount. I seem to have trouble giving away the game after the list done, oddly enough.

Edition shown. There is some corner and edge wear but it's not too bad at all. The components are sorted into a plano box for easier play and bagged for each player. Game is in excellent condition.

Soft Reserve of 180 dollars. I really don't know what the game is worth, there doesn't seem to be a lot of them sold.

Opened and played a couple times. Box and game in excellent condition. This is really hard to find over here in the states, and there were only a small number made. It's a decent game, just not my taste.

Closed out. Sorry to get hopes up.

Edition pictured. The box has corner wear and a little bit of edge wear too. But, for the most part the box is in good condition. The game is in excellent condition, cards don't look played with really, and the rest of the components are plastic.

Minimum bid is 5 dollars.

Unpunched.Comes with english rules. The rules claim the text on the cards isn't necessary to translate, as it's just flavor text.

10 dollars minimum bid.
