Bring & Buy

We’ll be running a super-easy Bring & Buy games store on Saturday only.

All fees and commissions go to GCOM to help offset costs of the con space rental. Your sales get you cash$ and your purchases get you some great games at great deals, and both support local board gaming.

Buyers:

Bring cash! There’s an ATM one mile away, but it’s easier to bring enough cash to buy any great deals you see, plus snack bar items and convention admission fee. Sales start at 11am, with price drops at 12 and 1. Sales end at 2.

Sellers:

There’s a $.25-$.75 fee per game you enter, deducted from your proceeds or payable when the store closes, whether or not it sells.

Game submission begins at 9:30am on Saturday. Complete this sheet with one form per game.  Also complete this spreadsheet, with an entry for each item you are selling. We’ll merge these into the master sell-list on site from your flash drive.  Game prices must be specified in whole dollars, and must decrease each hour by at least $1.  Payouts will be conducted between 4pm and 6pm. If you don’t pick up your games by 6pm, they WILL be donated to GCOM’s library!

The base listing fee is $.25 per item/lot. If you haven’t entered your lot information into the spreadsheet on a flash drive we can read, and the store volunteers have to create entries for you, the listing price increases from $.25 to $.50 per item/lot (it still all goes to GCOM). Besides the listing fee, GCOM will collect 10% of each sale, rounded down (in your favor) to the nearest $.25, and $.25 for each game that does not sell. If you’d like some extra marketing exposure, email a copy of your spreadsheet well in advance, and we’ll put your games on the WGF web site.

Here’s the current (very early) pre-submissions list.

GCOM is also accepting donations of games and gaming items to be sold to other gamers for $2 each after the Bring & Buy closes, with a price drop to $1/item on Sunday. If you have an unloved game, promo, book, etc. thats not worth marketing, but hate to send to the land fill, this is a great way to pass it on to your fellow gamers. De-clutter and get green while helping GCOM.
