I frequently peruse the GeekBay auctions here on the site and see things that people here sometimes are looking for, especially hard to find or going/gone out of print. So I'll add them here as I see them. Sort of like the hot deals thread, but more targeted.

Feel free to add anything you find here, but limit extraneous discussion, so people can subscribe without being inundated. I wouldn't worry about deleting posts, but if you include the auction end time in your comment, that would help too.

Try to limit to just grail games or those of high interest/low availability and in auctions here on BGG.

If this doesn't work or prove of value, then it can fade away into the ether...

This is a cool idea, Kevin. Thanks for starting this.

I'll try not to look at this thread very often. whistle

Has anyone scraped the auction lists with BGG API? It would be awesome to write an app that scrapes the lists a couple times a day and matches with users want list.

This may be a new project for me... /dusts off python book

There's this one:
BGG Auction Aggregator

If you put in your username and combine it with IFTTT you can get emails when new auctions go up with games from your wishlist.

I believe this one is dead, or maybe it's just for me, but when I log in nothing newer than July of 2015 shows up.

How do you find the auctions on Geekbay? I see GeekAuctions listed under Bazaar, but there is almost nothing listed there.

I haven't had the need to go near the auctions, since I discoveres that math trades aren't nearly as intimidating as I had feared.

I've unloaded several games I don't play for several used, or barely used, goodies...

Speaking of this...I used to get geekmails automatically sent to me when an item from my wishlist was listed in an auction via the OLWLG. But these emails stopped suddenly like 6 months ago without me doing anything. I just went and checked and I still have that option turned on but I'm still not getting anything

It's amazing how many times GoW is appearing for sale, considering it's OOP.

The game was selling for as low as $29.99 before it went OOP. I Really should have snatched one then.

Once you connect a couple of channels you can either create your own recipes, or add recipes that other people have created. Here's the one that I created to use for this:
IFTTT Recipe

When you go to the BGG Auction Aggregator I listed above you can get your own custom RSS feed URL that you would plug in to the recipe so you don't get notified when games from my wantlist show up in an auction.

Yeah. I clicked on it just to confirm what I already knew to be true.
I was actually a bit surprised. I thought, "I wonder what this is?" Once I clicked on it, I realized I should have known.
