Charity Auction
« on: February 26, 2020, 03:01:00 PM »
Hi all

It has been a while since i was on the forum and it seems to have been fairly busy.

In the next few weeks I am going to set up some charitable auctions of Carcassonne items and some other non Carcassonne gaming things.  My plan is to offer them here first.

My first request is to ask if any of you have anything you would like to donate to the auction - Carcassonne or not.

The reason for this is that I am doing an insane running challenge to complete all 4 home nation 24hr mountain running challenges back to back - 152 summits, 250 miles, 3.5 times the height of Everest in 96 hrs of running. This is a world first as well so I am pretty excited by it.

I am aiming to raise £15,000 for charity - for CALM, The Dogs Trust and Mountain Rescue.   

I have a Virgin money giving page - https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RossJENKIN2

So if you would like to donate a game/game related item, donate some cash, or are interested in the auctions, please get in touch.

I have been promised a couple of things from Danisthirty, and Udo Schmidt is sending something too.

I even have a donation from Klaus himself and Doris!

Who else would like to offer anything for sale?  An option would also be to offer a percentage of a sale to the charitable fund.

I will post different items one at a time on the forum.  Anyone who wishes can then send me a private bid. 

I will have an idea of a reserve for each item and will accept the highest bid.

I know some of the items are available online in some places if you hunt for them but remember that this is for charity.

Hi Rosco,

I hope that you reach your goal!!!

When do you plan to start?

Will it be a complete blind flight with the bids? Some weeks ago there was a auction on the German Carcassonne forum. They published the highest bid till 4 hours to auction end. So only the Last 4 hours were a blind flight. Through publishing always the highest bid everybody were able to think about his bid. They had also a mechanism when 2 or more have the same highest bid at the end. The highest bidder with the most posts in the forum got the item.
Do you have something similar in place?

I miss some items and hope to complete my collection, so I’m excited what items you got.

Here are the rules of the auction:

1.  Anyone can bid and they can bid as many times as they like on as many things that they like
2.  one item will be available at a time.  no other item will be available for bids until the previous one is sold.
3.  Bids will be sent to me by private message. I will publish the highest bid up until the final 12 hours (approx) when the highest amount will be hidden.
4.  There is a reserve on every item - this is for charity and as such items may have higher reserves than if the money was going in my pocket.
5.  On completion of the auction, the winner will be informed by private message and will be expected to pay into my Virgin Money Giving account with 48 hrs of receipt of the winners email.
6.  Postage for UK winners, for small items will be paid by me.  For larger items and postage abroad, postage will need to be paid to me by paypal.
7.  In the event that 2 or more people bid the exact same amount, they will all be messaged to tell them and they may have one final bid each and if there are matching bids again, then the first bid received will win the auction.


I have never done this before, so there may be things i havent thought of and as such i am open to suggestions.  Remember that this is for charity, you may be able to buy things elsewhere, and maybe buy them cheaper, but i will do my best to make the auction lots unique in some way.

Good luck everyone!!

I will be following the auction and plan on bidding if I see something of interst,; I love the idea!

On the first lot: Windrosen 1 is the rarer of the 2 versions.
I've had quite some issues finding this one a few years back! Later HiG made it available again in their webshop, but it is now no longer available from them.
A great start!
Good luck!

Hi Rosco,

I plan also to participate. Do you want the bids in €, $ or £?
Please answer on my previous questions. What happen when to have the same bid?
Is bidding a complete blind flight or do follow the model of The German Carcassone forum?

Good luck

Current Highest Bid ::  £40

I will not be up at 1 am so i will not publish any further bids after this.  I am not on my computer all the time so i will only publish the highest bid of the bids i have when i log on.

i hope this makes sense.
