      Hi Everyone,

      The Unity Games Charity Auction will again take place throughout the day at UG XVIII.  This auction has run fairly regularly in the past raising well over $7000 for a local charity like the Jimmy Fund.  This year, Unity Games will make a donation to the Greater Boston Food Bank. 

      So how does the auction work.  It is a silent auction with bids being made from 10am until 4pm on posted bid sheets.  The high bidder pays their bid at 4pm and takes the lot right then and there.  Cash and check are accepted.  In addition to winning the lot, Boardgamegeek will give you BGG Gold equal to your bid for those who are interested in such things.  Running the auction can be quite time consuming so if you have a winning bid, or think you do, please be present at 4pm at the auction table to claim your bid.  Given large volume of attendees expected on Saturday, we want to efficiently wrap the auction up and hunting for people who have the winning bid is a major pain.

      Below is a sample of some of the lots and some other game that will appear in lots that are to be determined.  Here are some highlights with associated details where necessary.
