Bring & Buy

We’ll be running a super-easy Bring & Buy games store on Saturday, January 26th.

  • Game Check-in: 10AM – Noon
  • Store Opens / Early Price: Noon
  • Middle Price: 1 PM
  • Late Price: 2 PM
  • Store Closes: 3PM
  • Sellers paid out: ~4PM

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 — both while supporting local board gaming.

Buyers:

See the games available for sale! Bring cash! That way you can buy snack bar items if you get nibbly before or after a big meal. Auction Store sales start at 12 noon, with price drops at 1 and 2. Sales end at 3.

Sellers:

  • BEFORE JANUARY 23rd, you must download and fill out the auction_store_registration and email it to auctionstore@gamesclubofmd.org. We will email you a set of Item Sheets which you will need to print, cut out, and attach to each game using painters tape or masking tape.  We will have tape available at check-in, but we highly prefer that you print and attach these in advance.
  • There is a $0.25 registration fee per game that is non-refundable
    • An additional $0.25 processing fee per item will apply if your Item Sheets are not pre-printed.  For example,
      • You email the Registration Form after the deadline, or
      • You bring your Auction Store Registration Form (above) to Winterfest on a USB drive, or
      • You left them home.

      You should expect significant check-in delays as well.

    • If the Auction Store Registration Form (above) is not provided electronically, there will be an additional $0.25 processing fee per item
    • We will deduct these fees as part of the seller payout – no need to pay during game check-in.
  • Prices must be set in whole dollar increments, and must drop by at least $1 from Early to Middle and from Middle to Late.
  • For games that sell, GCOM will take 10% of the sale price as a commission (rounded to the nearest $0.25 in the seller’s favor).
    • For example, a game that sells for $21, GCOM will take $2 commission and $.25 registration fee, and give $18.75 to the seller.
  • For games that don’t sell at all, GCOM will charge an additional $0.25 processing fee (on top of the registration fee)
  • If your balance is negative (because none of your games sell), you must pay the required fees to reclaim your games during payout time.
  • You must show your badge at payout time to claim your earnings and reclaim unsold games.

    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. that’s not worth marketing, but hate to send to the landfill, this is a great way to pass it on to your fellow gamers. De-clutter and get green while helping GCOM.
