4th Annual 131 Gamer Auction and Bitz Swap (06/25)

Postby Kinne » Tue May 31, 2011 9:36 am

It's that time of year again, time for The 131 to host its annual gamer auction and bits swap! This year, it will all be going down on Saturday, June 25th at Off the Wall Games in Hadley. Here's the schedule:

12PM -- 2PM -- Bitz Swap! Bring in your bits buckets and buy/sell/trade with your fellow plastic crack addicts.
2PM -- 4PM* -- Auction! Swing on by to bid on items being sold by local gamers! Check below for more info on this.
4PM -- ??? -- Bitz Swap Strikes Again! Didn't show up early enough for the first swap? Still have some bits left? Well swap them after the auction!

*This is a general estimate on time. The actual end time may (and probably will!) vary.

Alright, so this is how the auction works -- local gamers enter their unwanted gaming stuff into the auction, and other local gamers get the opportunity to bid on it. If your items sell, you get store credit at Off the Wall in an amount equal to the final bid(s). This store credit must be spent on Games Workshop/Citadel or Privateer Press items only. This is because those two companies have similar retailer cost, and it saves a lot of headaches after the auction is over. You also must spend this store credit within one month, so by July 25th. For the auction itself, each lot starts at a minimum bid (set by the person who enters the lot) and bids increase at a minimum of fifty cents. And it's a great opportunity to get some new hobby material on the cheap, which is great considering all of the price hikes we've been facing lately!

There are a few changes from previous years. This year, you must submit the paperwork for entering lots no later than one week before the auction, so by June 18th. Note that you do not have to bring in the items themselves. If you enter items into the auction, you must show up no later than ninety minutes before the start of the auction, so by 12:30PM on the 25th.

If you would like to enter items into the auction, simply contact me, the Event Organizer, via PM or e-mail and request the number of lots that you would like. I will send you a message no later than next Wednesday, June 8th, informing you of how many lots you can have, and you will then have a week-and-a-half to fill out the attached auction form and submit it to a club officer. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or contact me.

And that's that! So start getting your stuff together and get ready to auction it off!

what are people looking for bits wise? I can only stay till 3 and I have too much to lug up and than lug down to sit in the truck all night. I myself could use more DA robed bodies if anyone has some.

The Bitz will be there in spades from me as well!

I think that Ork Dread is going to make a really nice addition to Da Goff Krumpany :)

FYI I'm going to be at Off the Wall in about an hour, and I've filled up my trunk with bits and stuff. So if anyone is looking to trade or are looking for some stuff, I'll be there until about 4PM.
