Join us for one of our biggest annual events!
On Saturday October 7, 2017 we will be hosting our special Holiday Boardgame Auction. The auction includes new and used board games, historical games, card games, and CCGs. Sell your old games! Buy different games! Find nifty out-of-print games you've been looking for! We're accepting submissions from sellers effective immediately.
What makes this auction special, other than the date? You will be able to donate a portion or ALL of your auction credit to Oakland's Holiday Toy drive, and by doing so, help not only the children of Oakland experience a happy holiday season, but help EndGame prosper in 2018 as well. For more info on why we are doing this now, please see this update.
Info for buyers Each buyer claims a bid number at the front counter. The auction starts at 11am on the large mezzanine (aka the "minis mezz"). You'll have the preceding hour (10-11am) to browse the offerings on the small mezzanine (aka the "boardgame mezz").
During the auction, each time you win an item we'll give you that item to hang on to. Once you're ready to settle up, go down to the front counter to pay. You must pay for all your items on the day of the auction. No layaways!
Info for sellers When your games sell at auction you will receive the gavel price in EndGame store credit. The EndGame auction focuses entirely on Board Games. New, old, or in-between, complete or not, bring it on down. No role-playing games , card games, miniatures or miniatures games will be accepted for auction. We are always happy to purchase your used RPG books for the used section year round, and would prefer to handle those kinds of items in that fashion.
We're accepting auction lots starting Monday, September 11. Watch for the announcement then. When you bring your games in for the auction, you will be asked to set a starting bid price, and fill out a seller's form. Download the seller's form AT THIS LINK and fill it out before you bring in your games to save yourself some time. The form contains instructions. The last day we will be accepting items for the auction is Thursday, October 5th. No items will be taken in on Friday or the day of the auction itself.
Credit will be available on Monday, October 9 for the full value in store merchandise. Credit will be issued as an EndGame gift card for use at your convenience. Auction credit cannot be redeemed for auction merchandise.
Games that fail to sell at the auction will be held by EndGame until October 16th. If unsold games are not picked up by October 16th, they will be considered donations to EndGame, and will be sold, donated, or trashed, as appropriate.
