Other places have promo cards which are attractive to some. I'll be at the marathon at least for some of the day.

I'll be coming through Friday night after work. I'm looking forward to an evening of gaming. I'm willing to bring and teach anything in my collections. I'm looking to try Roll for the Galaxy, Dead of Winter, Kanban, and Xia. If anyone is planning to bring any of these, maybe we could arrange a game.

Starting in July the event fee will be $5 per person per day and the event will no longer be regularly held on Fridays.

For the past few years Sundays average a 30% rate of "No Shows" with a recent Sunday having a rate of over 50%. This is a waste of funds. The first half of Fridays is not very well attended either. To avoid wasting funds and my vacation time from work in order to manage Fridays, and because the hotel has warned there most likely will be a rent increase for 2016, the events will no longer be regularly held on Fridays and the event fee will be $5 per person per day.

Having a daily fee nearly doubles the distractions that managing the event creates for me however right now these changes seem best for the event overall.

The 9th Annual Summer Minneapolis Board Game Marathon will be held July 9 and 10. The venue is the Homewood Suites hotel in Bloomington south across the street from the Mall of America. A Board Game Garage Sale will be held in conjunction with Saturday's event. The details for the sale are as follows.

MBGM Dutch Garage Sale:
In a Dutch auction the price starts high and is lowered until someone purchases the item. For our Dutch Garage Sale the starting prices will be set by the sellers and will drop by $20 over the course of the day.

The rules of the game:
The sale will run on Saturday July 9th.

Bring six or fewer items to sell. (Due to space constraints)

Pricing:
Games must be labeled with price and owners name prior to drop off. I recommend using full-stick post-its. Fill out a registration form in advance if you wish. MS Word Registration form. PDF Registration Form. Forms and price stickers will also be available at the sale.

When setting your starting prices consider the price drop, what you'd be happy to sell for, and price accordingly.

Sale starts at 9:00am.
Prices drop by $2 every hour starting at 10:00am.
Prices drop by $3 every hour starting at 2:00pm.
Last price drop at 5:00pm.
Sale closes at 5:30pm. (Total price drop $20)
Minimum price is $2.
No Freebees

Payments:
Cash only.
Payment for purchases is due immediately, no holding.

Proceeds:
You may pick up your proceeds and games anytime on Saturday (before the sale ends if necessary).

Feel free to ask questions below.

Frequently Asked:

What do I do with the registration form?
Print it and bring it with you.

Do I need to register or notify you in advance?
Nope, just show up with games to sell.

Can I sell a game and its expansions together?
Bundling a game and its expansions is fine.

The minimum price is $2, so no first-come first-serve giveaway items?
Correct. No freebies.

Can I participate if I'm arriving later in the day?
Yes, but the the discount shown on the whiteboard will apply to the price you mark on the box.

It's been so long since I've made it to one of these. I work weekends usually so that's my problem.

Hey gang, is this move to Golden Valley possibly a permanent one? That's good news for me being able to attend if so.

Most likely the October event will not be at the Holiday Inn Express in Golden Valley. Most likely the November event will.

Thanks, I'm moving to Golden Valley so I'll be looking for more gaming opportunities in the west side of town once that happens.

I'll be attending this one (first one in a few years). Is there an entry fee, mandatory offering of food, or general begging of forgiveness to Jeff for not coming to one of these in ages?
