You want it. You know you want it. But so do they. And the only thing that's going to decide who walks away with the prize is steely determination and cold, hard cash. As the auctioneer starts hollering, the bids start flying. Like bullets whizzing overhead in combat, you can't tell where they're coming from, but you know they're aimed at you. You try to keep up, but it's too much to handle, finally you you let out a furious bellow with your final bid.
"Going once... Going twice... SOLD!"
You did it. It's yours. You are the proud owner of a complete set of vintage McDonalds Happy Meal Muppet Babies figures. And it only cost you seventy thousands dollars... As your stomach sinks at the realization that you might have got caught up in the frenzy of an open market, you feel the first stabbing pangs of buyer's remorse... and that means it must be time for another Light Grey Game Night! So mark your calendar for Thursday, May 5th from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.
As you might remember, we're attaching a theme to each night to help people narrow down what games they might want to bring (although you're still welcome to bring whatever you'd like!). This week's theme is Going Once..., where we'll be playing games with auctions, markets, and trading!
So grab your best bidding paddle and throw some cash at extravagant additions to your estate in The Castles of Mad King Ludwig, bid for the right to serve a nobel samurai in Royal Warrant, or furiously overspend in the dexterity auction crossover Going, Going, Gone!, among plenty of others! If you have a favorite boardgame, bring it!
So grab your friends, family or favorite stack of board games, and come play with us! RSVP via our Facebook event, and feel free to share! The more the merrier!
