Bring and Buy Games Stall

The schedule

The Bring & Buy stall will be back, as per usual, but across the road in the Ashton Court in the Hardwick suite.

Once again, we will be retaining 5% of the selling price of every game sold in order to cover the costs of hiring the room.

The Bring & Buy registration sheets will be available on the main MidCon registration desk all day on Friday so you can register the games you want to sell in advance, if you wish. 

Instructions on how to do so should be on the back of each Bring & Buy registration sheet but are also given below.


The schedule in 2018 is as below and has changed from last year; the second session will be held earlier because we only have the room for a half day.

10.00 - 10.44 Sellers bring their games to the sale room
10.45 - 11.15 Buyers are admitted (assuming we have logged all the games for sale)
11.16 - 11.45 Sellers can collect unsold games and proceeds from sales if they are not going to be around for the second session
16.45 - 16.59 Sellers bring their games to the sale room or adjust the prices of games that did not sell in the first fashion
17.00 - 17.30 Buyers are admitted 
17.40 - 17.55 Sellers collect unsold games and proceeds from sales.
18.00 The Wolverhampton & Dudley septum widening club takes over the Hardwick Suite

If you want to log details of the games you are selling in advance, you may do so as follows.

  1. Bring your list of games to the MidCon registration desk in the Garden Room
  2. Grab the Bring & Buy folder but do not take it away from the desk.
  3. Enter the details of the games you are selling in blank rows on the forms: game name, seller, price. If you have a lot of games, please list them on enitrely empty sheets; if you only have one or two, feel free to fill in a gap on a partially completed sheet (but try to keep them all in one group of numbers).
  4. Grab the requisite number of coloured post-it notes - these should be on the registration desk. Do not take the whole batch of notes; just the amount you need.
  5. Transfer the relevant info from the Bring & Buy sheets to the post-it notes, i.e. game ID and price.
  6. Slap the post-it notes on your games and bring them along later to the Bring & Buy sale.

Please round all prices to the nearest pound unless you are asking for less than a pound for a game, in which case round it to the nearest 10p.

We will cream off 5% from the proceeds of all sold games to cover the cost of hiring the room.
