Annual Board Games & Collectibles Auction
APRIL 22, 2023 @ 11 AM
TURN YOUR OLD GAMES INTO STORE CREDIT USABLE AT BY THE BOARD GAMES & ENTERTAINMENT!
The past couple years of ArctiCon, By The Board Games has elected to host their annual Board Games and Collectibles auction on site, giving participants an opportunity to auction their games for store credit, dollar for dollar. They will continue the tradition with the founding of RegionCon! Submissions will be accepted beginning March 15th 2023 and close April 15th 2023. Buyers are given the opportunity to bid on these submissions in a fun and fast-paced event!
Submissions may include playable board games, in-tact books and comics, collectible card systems (non-sealed), statues, figures and miniatures!
Each submission is built into lots ranging in value of approximately $25-$150 and larger valued items are in their own lot.
Each lot is subject to a $1.00 admin fee taken from the sale value of the lot (I.e. if a lot sells for $25.00, the store credit applied is $24.00). Store credit is calculated and applied once auction is concluded and all lots are paid in full. Sellers may begin using their store credit immediately upon application. If a lot does not sell, the seller will be able to take unsold item(s) back immediately and no lot fee is collected. Any store credit accumulated does not expire and is usable at the convention, in store or at bytheboardgames.com.
