Why an Auction? Ever since its inception, WBC has been about competition and playing games without the distractions of such things as flea markets and seminars. Why change now? Well, we haven’t. By extending WBC to six full days and holding the auction during the hours preceding the start of WBC-proper on Tuesday evening, we get to have our cake and eat it too without detracting from tournaments.

It allows us to provide a service to our members who want to sell or buy long-out-of-print games at what is perhaps the largest gathering of the players of those games on the planet without having to go the eBay route of shipping and sight unseen purchases. What better place to acquire these games than amongst our annual reunion of friends at WBC in an entertaining auction without missing any tournaments?

Staff: In 2008, welcome back auctioneers Bruce Reiff, Ken Gutermuth and Keith Hunsinger and the entire CABS crew for another splendid and entertaining afternoon of buying and selling boardgames.

WBC changes Auction Store to PRE-REGISTERED items in 2008. It opens at 9:30 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. It’s like a flea market, except sellers do not need to supervise the selling because BPA runs the entire shebang to allow you to pay attention to the Auction or play games. It increases the number of items the BPA can sell, while providing a cost-effective way and efficient way to sell lower-value items. Plus, everyone has the chance to accomplish more “shopping” in less time, since it will be possible to peruse the Store while the Auction is ongoing within earshot and bidding range. Only items listed at $30 or lower may be listed in the Auction store. It is necessary to pre-register all items for the Auction Store by completing and submitting the Auction Store Seller Registration Form (download in Excel or PDF) and Auction Store Item Sheets (download in Word or PDF). A fee of 25 cents per item is due when you deliver the items on-site. IMPORTANT: Review the details of both the auction and auction store before deciding where to submit your items.

Advance Registration: Sellers must register both their auction and auction store Lots in advance. There is a limit on the number of Lots that will be sold in the Auction. See Auction Seller Information for details on how to register Lots.

Refer to the key for an explanation of abbreviations. Anyone who will be selling items at the auction should review the Auction Seller page. Anyone interested in buying items at the auction should review the Auction Buyer page for policies and procedures.
