We've got a new pre-registration process - you need to create a new account in in order to use it.

Auction Information

We are a passionate group of volunteers that run the Gen Con auction in Indianapolis. Over the years we have found new homes for thousands of old games where they will be played and loved.

Important Dates & Times

Pre-Registration Deadlines

July 17th - Live Auction Extended Deadline

Register Your Items

To sell items, you must pre-register them, selecting a price for each day if it is going to the consignment store, or picking a reserve price for items to be live auctioned. Print the tags and attach them securely to the items.

How it Works: Buying and Selling

Are you a first-timer? Start here to learn how the Gen Con auction works and how you can participate.


Every year Gen Con selects a sponsored charity. We collect items from dealers and attendees to sell during a special segment of the auction - where 100% of the proceeds are given to the designated charity.

We added a fourth credit card machine and processed seller payouts and TAB pickups right at the computer station, like last year. This saved buyers and sellers from traipsing all the way across the room to pay or pickup their money.

In addition we added some wireless bar-code scanners and two laptop/tablet computers that were used to check out TAB buyers.
