Who Can Sell? Selling is limited to those with a current WBC badge.

What Can You Sell? Due to the specialized nature of WBC as a boardgamers conference, Lots will be limited to boardgames, non-collectible card games, and accessories pertaining to same.

How Much Can You Sell? Sellers may submit as many items as they please. However, due to the limited time available, sales will be restricted to the first 550 Lots submitted and accepted. To avoid the disappointment of bringing your items to WBC only to be turned away when the limit is reached, we suggest you register your Lots in advance to guarantee they will not be excluded due to the sales limit. The total number of Lots registered and a brief description of each will be updated weekly on this site.

Registration Fee: There is a non-refundable registration fee of $1 per Lot which must be paid before being accepted either for auction or registration. To register in advance, send a check covering the Registration Fee for all Lots you will submit plus a list of the items therein, minimum bid accepted, and a one-word description of the condition (as defined on the Lot Form) to BPA, 7766 Valley View Court, Hickory, NC 28602. Paypal payments are subject to a 10% handling fee. All Advance Registrations must be received no later than July 22, 2006, or whenever the maximimum is reached, whichever occurs first.

Submission: A completed Auction Item Sheet must accompany each item or group of items to be sold. You may combine as many items into a single Lot as you like. Any item or group of items without an Auction Item Sheet will not be accepted. Item descriptions must be accurate. Any Lot submitted with a misleading description will subject that Lot, plus all others of that particular seller, to rejection. Tape the Auction Item Sheet to your item with Painters tape (available at auction registration in the Lancaster Showroom) to avoid damaging it. Auction Item Sheets may be downloaded from www.boardgamers.org/wbc/auctionitemsheet.htm and should be completed before arrival—complete with the Seller’s Badge Number which will be acknowledged by confirming e-mail. If you do not know your Badge Number, contact the Convention Director. (Click here for a list of definitions for use on the Auction Item Sheet.) All Lots must be submitted in person to the Auction desk in Lancaster Showroom of the Lancaster Host between the hours of 8 and 10 p.m. on Mon., July 31, or 8 a.m. and Noon on Tues., Aug. 1, 2006. Mailed or shipped items will NOT be accepted.

Minimum Bids: Low value items should be sold as a group in one Lot both to minimize your fee and to save time or committed to the Auction Store. While you may set a minimum bid for your Lot, the staff reserves the right to reject any Lot for any reason—including what they consider to be unrealistic Minimums. Ask our knowledgable Auction staff for suggestions as to what constitutes a reasonable Minimum for any Lot they reject. Any Lot received without a Minimum Bid will be offered at $1.00 Minimum Bid.

Payout: Sellers are responsible for collecting their proceeds and unsold items promptly. Sellers will receive 85% of the selling price, rounding the amount to the nearest quarter, upon providing a current WBC badge matching the Seller’s ID number. Payouts will be available from the registration desk by noon on Thursday and will remain available during registration hours throughout the convention. Amounts unclaimed by 2 PM Sunday are forfeit to the BPA.

Liability: BPA will exercise reasonable care in safeguarding your items, but the Association assumes no responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged goods. Unsold Lots should be claimed from the Auction registration crew in Lancaster Showroom by showing your WBC badge with a matching Seller ID number no later than 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Lots left beyond that time will be secured to the best of our ability and claimed only at the convenience of the convention staff from New Holland. Items left unclaimed by 2 p.m. on Sunday become the sole property of BPA.
