The Premier Video Gaming Auction Site and Community

GameGavel was launched on March 24, 2008. Since then, GameGavel has grown considerably and is visited by thousands of gamers each month. GameGavel has hosted over one million auctions and sold nearly half a million dollars in merchandise. This makes the most successful video game dedicated auction site ever.

GameGavel also offers gamers a unique online gaming community all bound together by the auction marketplace. We offer gamers a fun and friendly gaming community forum where they can connect with other like-minded gamers as well as enjoy some unique and original gaming entertainment from our podcast to the popular game hunting series, Big Game Hunter, found on GameGavel's Youtube channel. And, when we can we also serve up video game news, reviews and editorials on our content & print/digital magazine website,

There is no other online gaming website like GameGavel! We offer commerce, community and content all in one convenient place.

Recently, GameGavel has been receiving some extremely RARE auction listings and is becoming the go to auction site for sellers with unique and rare items to sell. GameGavel goes further to help sellers of rare items than any other online auction site by providing: listing support and advice, the promotion of rare item listings to the gaming press, editorial story creation to run alongside the auction and access to a large network of the world's most serious video game collectors.
