Hi there! I have way too much GeekGold and I rarely do anything with it. I'd like people to help me get rid of my GeekGold.

As it turns out, I also have a number of print and play things here on the Geek that I'd really like to see reviewed. So, I will give 20 GeekGold for the first real review that is posted for each of the following items, until I run out of GeekGold.

It's ok if you review it negatively. All I ask is that you review it honestly. You have to play it too. You can't just read it and give a review; you have to print and play it.

Yeah, I'm asking a lot for my 20 GeekGold, printing and playing a game or expansion, but I'm hoping it'll be worth it. There's fun to be had in the downloads below.

A note on playtesting: everything I release as a free print and play download has been playtested, but NOT playtested thoroughly. Usually it's a lot of 2-player games and not nearly enough 3+ player games. Balance issues can often sneak in because of this.

On the other hand, anything I release commercially, such as Meteor or Escape From Pirate Island goes through a full round of playtesting, with every permutation of players, and blind playtesting where I send the game to others to play and have them report back.

Please don't expect the amount of rigorous playtesting in the free print-and-play products that you would in a commercially released game. Luckily, the free downloads can be living products that can be updated based on feedback.

This is actually one of the more popular downloads on my site, according to my download tracker. People seem to like it, but I'd love to see a review.

One change I have been considering is making it so that the plants with the stars generate a special auction that everyone can participate in when they are drawn, just like a number of the official bonus cards do. Feedback in that area would also be great.

this was my first print and play fan expansion to Dominion. I'll be honest and say that I think it needs an overhaul. A lot of the cards give you curses when you play them, but really aren't powerful enough to warrant gaining that curse. But I'd still love to see a review.

This was my second fan expansion to Dominion. I like it better than the first expansion, but the Advisors cards may turn some people off.

This is my latest fan expansion to Dominion. It doesn't even have a representative image yet. Scrolls of Power is designed to work with The Books of Magic.

Mayday is an Are You a Werewolf variant crossed with a live action roleplaying game. It takes a bit more work to put together than your standard Werewolf/Mafia clone, but I think it's worth it.

The second of three games I designed based on Jonathan Coulton songs. (The first is Code Monkey, and the third has not been released for no good reason). It's probably a more interesting game for Coulton fans and it features scenarios that might not be kid appropriate.

My first fan expansion for Agricola. I think that some of the cards, the ones that give guests or additional workers, may be a little unbalanced. But I'd really like to hear what others think.

This is my second fan expansion for Agricola. It's kinda advanced and requires Farmers of the Moor. The disasters can make the really tight game of Agricola even tighter, so only try this out if you like a challenge.
