PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 1, 2012 - A new online auction house will be aiming to serve as the place to sell unique and historical video game items.

The International Video Game Auction House (IVGAH) is the brainchild of North Texas area resident Ben Gold, the 1980s champion of Q*bert and Millipede who won a nationally televised video game contest on That's Incredible!

The following teaser went up on the website at http://www.IVGAH.com yesterday, stating the following:

"Welcome to a new way to buy and sell unique items related to the history and culture of video game playing.  While there are auction sites where people can buy and sell video games and cartridges, there is no site dedicated to telling the story of gaming from competitive gaming, the design, and development."

"Until now, buyers and sellers have with truly unique items have not had a one marketplace to go. Examples include rare cartridges, consoles, arcade machines, competition medals and trophies, posters, autographed items, prototypes, early design documents, early pinball artifacts, early computing systems and any thing else that can tell the story of gaming."

The hall of fame gamer will be appearing at a midnight screening of Wreck-It Ralph this Thursday and at the upcoming Kong Off II contest in Denver, Colorado.  He is expected to reveal more about his newest project throughout these events.
