We’ve received more than $2,000 worth of donations from game publishers, local business owners and Myriad gamers – all of it is going to be raffled or auctioned off for charity.

Auction Highlights

We’re still finalizing our full list of auction highlights. If you have an item, old game, or a service you’d like to offer to the auction, email us at questions@boardgamersanonymous.com to discuss it with Anthony or Dan. We’ll be updating this list between now and October 31st with the full list of Auction items.
