GottaCon 2013 Gamers Silent Auction It’s Back!
On Saturday February 2th only between 9:00am and 6:30pm, come out and take part in the GottaCon Gamers Silent Auction brought to you by GottaCon Conventions. Convention goers are welcome to bring out their own items for sale as well as bid on the wide variety of items that will be available. We stress patience with convention staff as it takes time to enter all the information of submitted items and when the auction is complete to record all the results. If you would like to fill out a form and bring it with you to the convention please download the form http://www.gottacon....iontemplate.pdf. Also this year we are looking to set up self-serve computers where you can fill out your forms and print them for our staff.
What is a silent auction?
In this type of auction, items are put on display. To place a bid, bidders write on a piece of paper located near the item. The bidder will be able to see the bids made already and must bid at least the minimum amount specified higher than the current bid. The minimum increase over the current bid will be $1.00 unless otherwise indicated. Bidding closes after a pre-set period of time. The highest bidder at the end of the auction wins the item and pays the price submitted.
For more specifics on how the auction is run and how you can submit an item visit our website.
Some items that will be up for bid are:
- Board games new and used
- Tradable card games, singles and boosters
- Previously owned video games
- Video game systems
- Collectible/non-collectible miniatures and accessories
- Role-playing games old and new
- Books, comic books and animé
- Many other gaming and hobby related items
The GottaCon auction provides a great opportunity to buy and sell all of your gaming and hobby related items at great prices. The previous three years have been hugely successful so make sure you check out the auction on Saturday!!
Please note that GottaCon Conventions reserves the right to refuse any items submitted for sale in the auction. All items must be registered with GottaCon staff at the special events area and a fee of $1.00 per item must be paid.
