The Auction House

Welcome to the MOAB 2019 The Auction House!

Please click on the buttons below to access an overview of the Auction House, as well as important information such as Terms & Conditions and seller requirements.

The Auction House – a non-profit Silent Auction

The Auction House will be a Silent Auction that is there will be no auctioneer selling individual items. (A silent auction will allow us to auction many items simultaneously.)

Instead bids are to be written on a biding sheet that will be placed next to each item. The bid sheet will have the item number, description, fair market value, opening bid amount, and incremental bid amount.

At the end of the auction the sheets will be collected, inspected and the highest listed bidder wins the item.

Consumer rights

Goods bought at auction are not covered by statutory warranties, there are no refunds. Before buying at auction, you should make sure that the item is as described as all items are `sold as is’, because you can’t change your mind once the bid is accepted.

FAQ - Auction House

What sort of stuff can I sell? Pretty much anything gaming related, collectibles, or items others might want. As we Reserve Price minimum of $200, we are providing a way for you to sell armies, instead of the smaller items at the Bring & Buy.

How do I go about selling stuff? Items for The Auction House (Deliveries) are accepted at certain times over the weekend. Please check Operating Hours button below for exact times. All items need to be clearly labelled using our Auction House labels, and you need to accept our terms and conditions. Our advice – put a Reserve Price on the item which you would pay for it.

Access to display area when dropping off items There will be no public access (this includes Sellers) to the display area during drop off and delivery times. Sellers are not permitted in this area during setup/drop off or any other area designated 'Staff Only'.

Where can I find it? The location of The Auction House is the same location of the Bring & Buy, will be in the same place as last year, downstairs Gym area, where there is much more room and undercover waiting areas. Don't know where the Gym is? Don't worry, we will have plenty of signs on the day.

Can I submit my Auction Items electronically? Yes, you can. We have added this process to speed up the whole Auction House process. Go to the Upload Auction Items button below.

Labelling your items Items for sale need to be packed for display and clearly labelled with our Auction House labels, which will be provided to you. We reserve the right not to accept forms other than this design.

What sort of stuff can I NOT sell? Gamers are pretty nerdy and like some weird stuff, but even we draw limits. We reserve the right to not allow items for sale particularly if they are unsafe (or illegal). For example we don’t accept clothes, shoes, hand bags, stereo equipment, car tyres or food unless its gaming related. If in doubt contact the MOAB Organiser. to confirm if its ok.

Please note: The Sutherland Shire Gamers are members of the Sylvania Heights Community and Youth Club. Like you we are gamers who enjoy a range of table top games. We run two events - the MOAB convention (which includes our Bring and Buy and now The Auction House) and the Second Hand Stall at the CANCON convention.

We run both of these events to raise funds for our club and as a service to our fellow gamers. And we are all volunteers.

We do not have the resources to inspect and verify that each Auction item is accurate, has a description, or that the condition of the item is as described or inferred.

Accordingly, Sellers who place items for sale in either of our two stalls do so at their own risk, and we do not accept responsibility for the loss, theft or damage of any item; and Buyers are responsible for ensuring that the items they purchase are as described.



Looking for something to do with the family on the long weekend? Well drop in to MOAB and there are lots of things to keep you occupied whether you are a seasoned gamer or new to the hobby and games and want to check it all out.

There is additional parking behind the main building on the lower soccer fields. There will be signs indicating where to park.

Participation Games

To keep you busy at other times (and between games for those playing in an event) there are many Participation Games you can join in with.

They include these Participation Games:-

The Petit Race for Africa
Saturday & Sunday

Somehow overlooked by both explorers and surveyors alike during the great partition of darkest Africa, lays an insignificant parcel of unclaimed land, ignored until recently by the European powers. Newly discovered and defined by the eccentric French explorer, Jean-Baptiste de Pain-Perdue, who announced his findings openly to the world and then promptly disappeared, the discovery of this insignificant parcel of land has spurred a second, albeit petite, race for Africa by those nations who covet it The doctrine of the Berlin Conference still holds true although - cultured society demands that there are rules to be followed when "annexing" an innocent's land!

Yet the insignificant parcel of land is far from uninhabited. The land is home to native tribes, both noble and warlike, who have already witnessed their lands ravaged by nefarious slave traders. These sellers of men have taken many slaves, the daughter of the head chieftain amongst them, their miserable trade being plied from a slaver tembe that sits festering like a cancerous wound by the river. What will happen when the White Man arrives?

Play as the dastardly Belgians, the stiff upper lipped British, the steadfast French, the imperialistic Germans, the devious Zanzibar Slavers or their crafty Baluchi allies, the noble and savage Watumbi, or the hashish addled Ruga-Ruga, in this 8 player participation extravaganza.

This game will be run twice, once on Saturday 5th and once on Sunday 6th of October, starting at 12pm sharp, until conclusion. The game is expected to run for the entire afternoon.

Rules will be light, with emphasis on player interaction, including much negotiation and manipulation.

Victory will be achieved by the faction that can successfully complete as many of their objectives as possible, the objectives of which are rarely as simple as the annihilation of an opponent.

Places are limited and registration is essential.

Presented by Sven De Braekeleir and Frank Sultana.

Saturday & Sunday

A Song of Ice & Fire Miniatures Game is a competitive tabletop miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne.

Battles can range from large-scale wars with hundreds of miniatures to simple skirmishes between a few units without complicating the elegantly designed rules. The game features several unique systems, including alternating activations that keep the players engaged; a Rank System that changes a unit's capabilities as the battle rages on; a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fuelled by a finite resource each round; and, most importantly, the iconic Heroes, such as Robb Stark and Jaime Lannister, that can change the course of war both on and off the battlefield.

6mm Napoleonic Gaming – Demo Game – Blücher
Saturday & Sunday

Blücher is a tabletop game of great battles in the Napoleonic Wars by Sam Mustafa. Players takes the role of a general commanding a large army in a famous or fictional encounter. Units represent large forces such as brigades of infantry or cavalry and concentrations of massed artillery.
Blücher is fast-paced and can be played at various scales – at MOAB, the game will be demonstrated in 6mm scale only. Why this scale? Simply, no other scale gives the same sense of the vastness and size of Napoleonic era battle, and you’ll be amazed at the level of detail in the painting that can be achieved at 6mm.

The game at 6mm scale is affordable, easy to paint and assemble – getting you onto the table quicker. The Blücher rules are straightforward and easy to learn, but with some twists and nuances that make for a great level of complexity that doesn’t overwhelm the gaming experience. The Scharnhorst Campaign System is an advanced game feature designed into the game introduces a great dimension which positions the troops for the coming battle.

Come and have a go.

Click here to learn more about the Blücher game.
