We’re excited to be offering a Bring and Buy (BnB) auction at the Breakout event. This feature will be held on Saturday, March 18th in the (room TBA soon) and will run from 12 pm – 6 pm. For those who are unfamiliar with this auction format, the idea is that instead of having an auctioneer managing the individual lots for sale, there is a dedicated space set aside with all the items for sale on display. Any attendee can peruse the items and if they find something they would like to buy, simply pick it up and bring it to the cashier to pay cash for the appropriate listed price. Again, we accept cash only at the auction.
Breakout has successfully run this style of auction now since it began in 2016 and it’s proven to be an extremely popular feature.
So, how does it work?
- If anyone has games that they would like to try and auction off, they bring them to the designated auction area which will be located in the Simcoe & Dufferin Rooms.
- Fill out an Auction Seller Registration form. The Registration form provides a full list of all your games for sale (and other pertinent info).
- Tag each of your games with an Item form. Item Sheets displays the price info for any potential buyers.
- You set the price that you want for each item (note all prices must be in whole dollar amounts – e.g. $10, $40, etc. NOT $10.50).
To avoid the risk of losing game pieces, sellers are expected to properly secure their games before putting them out to sell (e.g. tape, elastic band, etc.).
How to Set an Item's Price
The costs: There will be a nominal fee paid to Breakout for each item or lot which sells amounting to $1.00 or 10% (whichever is greater).
