Up for auction are 3 games of war: Superpowers, Shell Shock, and Richthofen's War. In keeping with the military theme, this will be an auction which encourages sniping.

Since the awesome sniper movie, "Enemy at the Gates" was released on March 16, this auction will end on the 16th of this month, and at 4:00 pm Central Time.

For the game Superpowers, the sniper code of "1 shot, 1 kill" will be honored (aka BIN), so feel free to pull the trigger on that one if you so desire.

Finally, some fog of war - there are two copies of one of these games in similar condition (whether new, acceptable, etc), one of which will be awarded to the second-highest target (bid). So in other words, the two highest bids for one of these games will each win, but you have no way of knowing which game that will be.

To encourage sniping, two winners will also each receive a small, free game if their win is the result of sniper fire.

So enjoy the auction and remember: "When the bidding is over, it hurts, but what you're feeling now ain't the worst pain. The worst thing is not feeling the hurt anymore."



Rules of Engagement

1. All games will be listed with a minimum starting bid.

2. All bids must be in whole dollars.

3. Shipping is from 72173 and will be paid by the winner. I will ship via USPS. Local pick up is fine with me.

4. I will combine shipping if you win multiple items.

5. Shipping will be to the USA only.

6. All transactions will be done via Paypal and through the BGG marketplace so BGG will get its 3% commission. If you are doing local pickup, I can accept cash.

7. This particular auction will run until 4:00 pm on the evening of November 16, 2017

This is the 2-player version of Ambush!

I attempted to inventory this game, but it has a ton of components and no detailed listing was included in the instructions (nor could I locate any on BGG or online), so I took pictures instead. Hopefully those who are more familiar with the game can determine the completeness.

From what I could tell, there is one German Wermacht soldier chit missing - the T. The box corners are intact, although there is a good amount of shelf wear, and the maps, manuals, and reference cards are all like new. There are 4 different decks of cards, and each deck is complete. All counters have been organized and bagged.

Additional pictures are available on request.

This is missing 5 minor chits:

one blank plane (brown)
one blank plane (green)
one dummy #7 (brown)
two ALT 1,000 (green)

The box corners are intact, but there is a good deal of shelf wear and creases.

Mission Briefing Manual, Scenario cards, Aircraft Status Pad, Instruction Folder, Critical Hit Table are all present and in good shape. The 3-part board is also in good condition.

I bought this game second-hand, and it has a slight musty odor, as if it was stored in a basement for awhile. I don't notice it unless I put my nose right up to it - it's not noticeable ordinarily, but in all fairness I wanted to mention it.
