What is the Games Plus Auction?
Twice a year Games Plus hosts an auction here at the store.
You, our customers, bring in items to enter into our auction – a four day live auction event giving you a venue to turn old gaming items into new exciting ones. We auction over four thousand items over the course of the auction. You can find anything from unopened copies of current games to painted armies, older boardgames and roleplaying books, modules and magazines as well as other accessories.
You bring them in, fill out some paperwork and then we auction them off. Several days later we award you 100% of the value in store credit to spend with us.
In past auctions we’ve split up the auction into four different sessions
Thursday Night : Tradable/Collectible/Customizable Games
Magic the Gathering, Heroclix, original Monsterpocalypse, Star Trek Card game, Pokemon and other blind-buy card, miniature and pog based games as well as accessories like card binders, magazines, deck boxes and the like. Generally only a couple of hours from around 7 pm till only 9 pm or so.
Friday Night : Family, Euro and Historical Games
These would range from games like Settlers of Catan to Avalon Hill’s Blitzkrieg – from Carcassone or Wingspan to Advanced Squad Leader. This auction starts at 6:30 and goes deep into the night, generally after midnight. Buckle up – there are lots and lots of games here as well as magazines, expansions, counter trays and other accessories.
Saturday : Role Playing, Science Fiction and Fantasy Games
Starting around 10 am this auction will tend to go throughout the day. Hundreds, if not thousands of role playing games, supplements, adventures, battle mats, boardgames and accessories (like dice, GM screens, box inserts and what not) come up for auction on Saturday. From individual books to bundles of adventures or games and expansions – it’s here.

There are easily thousands of items that go through the auction on Sunday. It starts at 9 am and goes till about 8 or 9 pm non-stop.
