Auction Results

Our new location on the 2nd floor of the Marriott was a complete success. Attendees didn't seem to have any trouble finding us and the larger room allowed the Consignment store items to be displayed more effectively. Click the arrow below to see how we did!

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.

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.
