Mark your calendars!

Have old games sitting around unplayed?

Want to replace them with new games?

Or maybe you're just looking for a bargain?



Then come to I'm Game with your used board and card games! Bring your old games to our store anytime between Sunday June 1st, 2008 and Friday June 13th, 2008 and drop them off with a Gametender on duty. We'll take down your pertinent information and arrange a minimum bid for each item.

The Board Game Auction will take place on Saturday, June 14th , 2008 from noon to 4pm. Anyone can come and bid on the games available for auction; once the auction is over (or you're ready to check out), you pay us for the games you've successfully bid on at the auction.

We'll then issue gift certificates to the auctionees which are good any time for items in our store. If there's a particular game you'd like to purchase with the proceeds from your auctions that we normally don't keep in stock, please let us know and we'll be happy to order a copy in advance for you.

If you have any questions, please call us at (440) 734-1050.


Thanks!
Steve Zamborsky, Asst. Mgr.

Great news! I just got word that a former local 'Geek (cc_TheToph) will be sending me lots of games to auction off, all various and sundry! As soon as he compiles them, I'll get a list of them on this thread so people can prepare for the auction accordingly.

Also, when the date draws near and people start turning in their games for auction, I'll do my best to make sure that this thread stays updated with what'll be available so people know what to expect.

-Steve

Will there be a schedule posted? I imagine it'll take a good while to go through all those lots.

Well, the official time for the Auction is from noon to 4pm, Chris. I was thinking about doing 45 minute increments, then taking a 15 minute break every hour. I've learned in past years that trying to do it all at once just completely wears me out. So I think this 45-15 rule should do well.

As far as an actual grouping of games for scheduling? I hadn't planned on that, though if that's something people are interested in, I can implement it for next year.

I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but that was really fun. You did a great job running things, Steve, very smooth. Thanks for putting it on, and thanks to I'm Game as well. I'm looking forward to the next one.
