It's at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/42133

This is in honor of BGG-er Microbert, who has been having a tough time.

I am selling off a bunch of games. All proceeds will go to support New Horizons for New Hampshire http://www.newhorizonsfornh.org/, which runs a homeless shelter, soup kitchen, food pantry and a shelter for women.

The way the auction will work is simple: high bidder pays the amount to New Horizons, sends me a copy of confirmation email and I send the games.

Others are welcome to contribute games if they'd care to.

I would ask that all donations be made in the name of Mike Robert.

Further, I will pay shipping if you will donate the cost of shipping to New Horizons.

Cost of shipping is separate from bid for game. Thanks to those who've already indicated they will donate S&H cost too. I will tell you how much shipping costs after I send it to you and then you can donate. Also if you live in the area we can arrange a hand off without shipping costs.

Auction closes at Midnight (eastern time) on Friday, May 15th.

Drop me a line if you have any questions.

Please remember this is a charity auction and bid accordingly. ALL proceeds go to help other people.

Thanks to Aldie who -- to no one's surprised -- made it clear that he had no concerns about the Geek not getting its usual cut from game sales for this auction (and I doubt he would have even thought about this had I not asked him first).

Sad news to report, Mike passed last Friday apparently quietly in his sleep.

RIP Mike, next game I play will be in your memory.

Subject: Mike Robert - sad news

It is with a heavy heart that I relay the news that Mike Robert has
passed away. I heard from Jessica, his daughter, earlier today, and it
appears that he died in his sleep, at home, on Friday.

I'm very glad that Mike got to go to The Gathering. I don't need to
tell you he was having a very hard time, but despite his pains he got
out of bed and on a plane and went to see all his friends, and had a
great time while there, with great dignity and with his usual charm
and sense of humor.

I apologize for sending this in an email. I have tried to call some of
you but I think it is just easier to get you all together - please
forgive me.

I know we will all miss Mike terribly. Do take a moment to touch base
with Jessica, if you can.

Sincerely,

Ricardo
