Bidding on Games

To bid on a game, raise your baton high, lowering it only when you want to remove yourself from bidding. After winning a bid, a runner will bring the game to you. Pay the runner in CASH in exchange for the game.

The Auction in Action

We've found a video from way back in 2010 that shows off the auction in action. While the years might have come and gone and the venue has changed, this will give you a good idea as to how the auction flows.
