FYI this is the Games Plus Auction weekend (the boardgame Saturday is
moved to next weekend). If you haven't done the auction I'd recommend
giving it a try (besides the actual auction, its a great place to meet
gamers and maybe some local designers and hear all sorts of inside industry
gossip). Here's the schedule:

Collectible, Tradable & Customizable Game Auction : 7pm Wed Oct 3rd

Historical Games (magazines, Books, etc) Auction : 7 pm Friday Oct 5th

Fantasy, Sci-Fi & RolePlaying Auction : 11 am Saturday, Oct 6th

Miniatures (figures, rules, terrain, etc) Auction : 11 am Sunday, Oct 7th

For more details see: http://www.games-plus.com/games-plus/auction.htm

Those look like the dates from the last auction, Ray. Maybe they haven't updated the web page yet?

I think that March 2007 has already come and gone.

What are the dates for the Fall Auction??

The website link also only has the Spring auction dates and no dates for the Fall auction.

That should be the link for the fall auction.

I normally can't attend long...no money, and my toddler is only interested in running around the store, which is slightly disruptive to an auction...but I've got some stuff up for sale this time around, so please go, bid high, and help contribute to me getting more games I don't have time (yet) to play.

Do you know what time? The new link does not mention the start time.

I don't have the auction sheet with me, but I recall that the weekday auctions start in the evening, 7 comes to mind. The Saturday and Sunday auctions start much earlier, although that could be anywhere from 11-1PM. I'm sure Games Plus would be happy to tell you if you but called them.

Doh! Teach me to not read it carefully. The times are right just the dates were off. I updated them.

I'm assuming there the same times as they haven't changed them in years. If anyone has any information to the contrary please post here.

As for not having money that never stops me. I'll often not buy anything but still go just to talk to everyone and hear all the commentary about what games are hot or not and why.

I've not stayed to close on a Saturday in recent years. In the past it could vary between 11pm and 1am.

Sounds bigger than it used to be, back over a decade ago. I know I didn't spend that long there at the one I went to.

I was also wondering how long these tend to go for. Rich told me that the historical auction will start at 7pm on Friday. Any idea how long that's likely to run? I'd like to try to make it and hang out with people if nothing else, but I don't want to strand my wife with the babies for an indeterminate period of time.
