Auction Madness!
GEN CON AUCTION DETAILS:

 
Here are a few details about the Gen Con Auction:
Staffed by Mr. Ken Fonarow, the auction is a popular 'event' that you can catch through the convention, even if you arn't a hard core collector. In fact, chances are most attendies arn't, and they'll find plenty of deals to make them happy! Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
  • ONLY valid Gen Con '99 badge holders may register for a lot.
  • Those with Visitor passes may attend and make purchases, but cannot sale.
  • Auction bidding card cost around $2 and is good for the duration of the convention.
  • Go as often as you like! Food and drink is not allowed, so that helps cut down on too many collectors camping out. :-)
  • Each game type (RPGs, Wargaming, Board Games, etc.) has it's own hours of sale. Check your Gen Con '99 booklet (picked up on-site when you register) for those hours.
  • Arrive early to the appointed hour of sale of the item type you like. Sometimes things get ahead of schedule, when no one is bidding on the current lots, and Ken appeases the restless crowd by asking them what they'd like to see up for bid.
  • Remember: an upset hard-core collector is more dangerous then a Pit Fiend peeled by a Chaosman. :-)
Note: these tips do not reflect the views of WotC, Andon Unlimited, TSR, or the Auction staff. But we think they are pretty good advice.
