Join us for our Virtual Game Auction, Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 6pm on our Discord server and get great deals on board games, card games, jigsaw puzzles, roleplaying games (RPGs) and video games. Bid on games and puzzles from the comfort of your own home. If you’ve got games and/or puzzles you don’t want anymore, we can auction them off for you and give you the proceeds in store credit, less $2 per lot. The deadline to submit games and puzzles is Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
If you think you might want to bid in the auction, you should register now by calling Tina at (843) 851-1498. We’ll be posting updates here on our web site and on Facebook as the games come in. You never know what will come up for auction. In our previous auctions we’ve seen rare and out-of-print games, games still in shrink wrap, and gift-worthy used games of all types and genres. There’s always something great! The deadline to register as a bidder is Friday, March 19.
