Our game shelves are about to collapse and we would like to give a few of our games new homes. We love some of these games but they don't get played enough to remain on the shelf.

Therefore, we are offering to ship games as a package. The deal is that we'll sell to those interested in buying at LEAST three games together (of course, more than 3 is welcome).

So, we have the following games we'd like to package sell, all of which are in very good and complete condition:

Guatemala Cafe
Carolus Magnus
Primordial Soup
GIPF
Funny Friends
Hunting Party
Risk
Ra

The lowest bid we will accept for 3 of these games is $50 (domestic shipping included in that price). If you are interested, please respond here with: 1) the names of the games you'd like and 2) your proposed price. The highest bidders within 48 hours will receive the games.

Paypal users only. We'll only ship in the US.

Happy gaming!

Thanks for your interest. Yes, the games are all complete and in nearly perfect condition. We acquired too many games to play them all so these have only been played a very few times.

Wouldn't this be easier if it were done as an auction? I don't even know how to increase my bid...there are too many different groupings and pricings....very confusing.

I didn't realize at first that shipping is included in bids so I guess I'll up mine to $100 for the pile.

Hi all -- thanks for everyone's interest and questions. To answer some here:

Bidding ends at 4:45 PM today (48 hours after the original post).

Shipping is included but only bids from domestic destinations please.

My apologies if this bidding system is confusing (my head is spinning too!). Next time, I'll use the auction function.

Highest bids are considered those that are the greatest value per game. However, because our aim is also to give the most number of games new homes, we'll also take # of games into consideration. I admit, there's an element of subjectivity here.

Any suggestions on how to do this fairly and easily are welcome!

Many thanks everyone.

Your main problem with everyone bidding is that everyone (except the first bidder) seems to want Carolus Magnus. This will make your splitting the bids up hard to do. People should think about bidding on a bundles without Carolus Magnus to maximize their chances (of course this is only my opinion as I am just a curious observer).

Due to this subjectivity, please consider both bids as valid:

Winning bid:

Carolus Magnus, Primordial Soup, and Ra to "opks22" for $65


Thanks to all bidders. Please note that we did this as a test run and have several good games to find new homes. Does anyone know of a less confusing way of doing this?

The BBG auction function seems to only take Geek Gold.
