I told myself I would have a board game giveaway for my 100th Geeklist but I'm a few short of that goal. Then, I would have one when I hit 100K thumbs received, but I'm not near that mark either.

So, I figured to that I would do it when I get 500 games in my collection... and, well, I'm not there either.

Finally I was just reflecting how how fortunate I have been. Life has been good. I've been married to my wife for over 18 years, have three great kids, and even though there have been some bumps, am gainfully employed with good pay.

So, I thought it would be time to give back to some of the people who enjoy the hobby as much as I do. I enjoy BGG and have been here for a while now. The amount of enjoyment, entertainment, and talent I have gotten/seen from this site has been nothing short of amazing.

Now ... I give a little back.

Each item has its own entry rules, so please read them. The giveaway will close on November 4th at 10pm PST. I will choose the winners then.

Do you have a game group? Here is the one I play with most Saturday nights:

The guys


and our wives:



Since I am the one that buys a (very) large portion of the games we play I know the burden of buying most of the games.

This entry is for $50 gift certificate to coolstuffinc.com. This is my favorite online seller so I will purchase a gift certificate and send it to you. You will need an email that I can send the certificate to. In the US that will get you half way to free shipping. If you live in a country that coolstuff.inc ships to, you can enter this contest.

I want this to help the game group person who buys most of the games. Thing is, some game groups consists of just you and your wife or best friend. So, if you buy the games, feel free to enter this giveaway.

What do you have to do to get this?
If you add you game group as a comment I will add an entry for you. If you don't have one, this is a good time to make one up!

How will I pick the winner?
I will randomly pick a name from the list of game groups.

Best of luck and keep on buying!

This auction is for 5 (five) prizes of 30 Geekgold to buy Avatars. I will be giving 5 people who do not have avatars 30 GG so they can buy one.

I know not everybody has the time to dedicate to taking pictures, writing reviews, or session reports, but they love being on this site and contribute in their own way.

What do you have to do to get this?
Just write a comment in response to this giveaway. I will see that you don't have an avatar and will enter you into the contest. You can write whatever you want, but try and make it clever or funny. Why?

How will I pick the winner?
The top five thumbed entries from the comments will get the 30 Geekgold to purchase their avatar.

I love dice, I don't know what it is about them. I enjoy the randomness, that when used right, really make a game shine for me. Not all of my favorite games need them, but I do enjoy games with dice in them.

I even made a poll about this in a geeklist one time. Feel free to vote, if you have not already.

Poll
How do you feel about dice?
Dice hate me. They do their best to roll the worst possible outcome. I never win a game when dice are involved.
Not so good. Dice generally don’t fall my way. I usually lose games when dice are involved due to bad rolls.
So-So. Sometimes I get good rolls, sometimes I get bad rolls. In the long run, everything works out about even.
I like dice. The dice generally fall my way and I get good rolls. If dice are in the game, I have a good chance of winning.
Dice love me. They do my bidding and bend to my will when I need that perfect roll.

I also enjoy playing war games even though I don't get to play them as often as I'd like.

So, to blend the two I am giving away one copy of these Flames of War Stars and Stripes dice:



While these dice have been opened, they have never been used and are in brand new condition. I will also send these free worldwide.

What do you have to do to get this?
Just thumb this entry and you will be entered.

How will I pick the winner?
Using a mix of firepower, cover, terrain and environmental modifiers mixed with die roll. OK I'll randomly pick one entry.

Finally, one for those solo war gamers out there.

I've done quite a bit of solo war gaming and wanted to help out you solo gamers. This is for a copy of the solo U-boat Leader game from DVG games. This game has been opened and played once. The counters are in trays and I have sleeved the U-boat cards. Sorry, but this is US only auction, but I will be shipping it for free.

Just thumb this item and you will be entered.

How will I pick the winner?
I will pick the winner at random.
