TOPIC: CLOSED - Successful 8k Augmented auction

CLOSED - Successful 8k Augmented auction 2 months 2 weeks ago #1

Working through last 3 messages now - will post when bids are all up to date, and begin sending out invoices to people soon. Thank you to all who participated! :-)


Auction rules:
This is an augmented auction. To help us reach the goal I have included things not normally found in the super-condensed offering from my own collection (in the third post). As the auction progresses, if it looks like we are not meeting the goal, I may continue to add more things from my own collection. The goal here is to get this funded and money to TD.

This auction is a little different from auctions I have run in the past. I have bolded the changes.

This auction will include buy-out prices. Buy-out prices are essentially "buy it now" prices if you are familiar with ebay. If you bid the buy-out price, you are committing to purchase the item for that price. It will be reserved for you, and others will be unable to bid on it. This creates a ‘ceiling’ for bids.

This means if you would like to bid traditionally, you may bid up to the bid amount below the buy-out price. If you bid the buy-out, the assumption will be you are wishing to purchase the item at that price.

How this is handled with competing bids: Buy-out bidders will overtake the lowest bidders, as when an item is bought out, it is removed from the pool of available items.



In order for the auction to be successful, the grand total of all bids above the minimums must meet or exceed $8000. If the auction fails to meet the minimum, I may choose to go forward or call the whole thing off.

Bidding is eBay style:
◦ Bids are sent to me via PM
◦ You must bid at least the current bid + the bid increment.
◦ Bid increment on items less than $10: 25 cents
◦ Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $10 and less than $50: $1
◦ Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $50: $5
◦ The winning bid amount is the lesser of the 2nd highest bid + the bid increment and the highest bid.
◦ I will post the winning bid amount and a pseudonym of the bidder at minimum once per evening.
◦ In the event that multiple bidders all bid the same highest amount, the earliest bid will win it.

This auction style rewards early bidding, as you win ties and people must raise the bid by at least the bid increment to take it from you. Since the price is set by the 2nd highest bidder, you may enter your top bid initially and never overpay.

Bidding ends on Sunday December 27th at 8pm EST OR 8pm EST the day after funding has been achieved. WHICHEVER OCCURS FIRST.

There will be no extensions (aside from board technical difficulties)

This style rewards early style bidding in the extreme. If funding is achieved quickly, the auction will end quickly.

For example if crazy town happened and Thursday evening I post an update that meets or exceeds $8000, the end date of the auction will become Friday evening at 8pm EST.

Any last minute changes in high bidders will not extend the auction.


Payment is required through PayPal via friends and family. All winning bids will have 48 hours after close of auction to provide payment. Any unpaid item(s) after allowed time will defer their winning bid and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their maximum bid price of the item(s).

Shipping on all winning bids is $5 for 10 or fewer tokens, $8 for 11 to 150 tokens, $15 for over 150 tokens to destinations in the US. International shipping is at the actual cost of shipping. Shipping will occur within 1 week of receiving the tokens from True Dungeon, and probably much much quicker than that.

FEEL FREE TO BID ON ANY NUMBER OF ITEMS FOR WHICH THERE ARE MULTIPLES AVAILABLE, YOUR BID WILL ALWAYS APPLY TO THE CHEAPEST ITEMS
