On Tuesday, July 25, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., WBC will host its annual Game Auction for the sale of board and card games, and related items. The auction and auction store will be held in the Grand Ballroom.
A list of pre-registered items for sale at the auction will be posted in prior to the convention. Plan to come early to enjoy the auction and look for that long out-of-print classic that has been eluding you for years. IMPORTANT: Review the details of both the auction and auction store before deciding where to submit your items.
You can click on the registered lots button to the left and view the registered lots from 2016. The 2017 lots that will be available at the WBC auction will be listed prior to the convention. There will be game information posted as well as game conditions.
Staff: Welcome back auctioneers Bruce Reiff, Sean McCulloch, and Ken Gutermuth and the entire auction crew for another splendid and entertaining afternoon of buying and selling boardgames.
