Discussion Thread is Here!

The original Chain of Generosity is here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/23326/ This list is a continuation.

The Chain has been, and continues to be, an enormous success. Thank you to all the people who've kept it going for over two years!

Boardgamegeek is a wonderful place. The friendly, helpful, generous users here make this one of the best online communities. I want to contribute to that spirit, so I have created the BGG Chain of Generosity.

Here's how the BGG Chain of Generosity (The Chain) works:

Step 1: I will seed the list with a giveaway game. Anyone who wants that game can leave a comment to that effect. After 2 days (on Friday) I will randomly choose (using the random integer generator at random.org) a recipient for the game, and geekmail them to set up shipping to their house.

Step 2: The recipient of the game will then choose a game from their collection (probably from their trade list) and post it as an item here for more people (or maybe the same people) to comment on and enter. After about 2 days (this can vary) they will do a drawing, and a that person will win the game.

Step 3: The new recipient repeats step 2.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

RULES:

1. You must comment to the item in question indicating you wish to be in the drawing to recieve it in order to be eligible to win.

2. If you win one, you MUST post a game of your own to give away in this fashion. If you don't like that idea, don't play.

3. In the unlikely event that no offers are made on your game by 48 hours after posting, try a different game in its place.

4. If you wish to start a second (or third, or fourth) chain, post an item to the geeklist and put "SEED" in bold in the description. For those later in the chain, identify which chain your game belongs to.

5. Sender pays shipping, unless he indicates in his entry that the recipient will and under what grounds (International shipping, etc). Anyone signing up to receive an item where recipient pays shipping agree to do so.

Pretty simple rules, eh?

Other Considerations:

The game you post should be one that most of the BGG community might want to have. Ideally, one on your trade list. The dual-purpose of this list is to spread goodwill and give unliked games a good home.

You can win multiple times. Just keep in mind each time you win a game you'll be giving another one away.

301. Board Game: Nuclear War [Average Rating:6.21 Overall Rank:1777]

In celebration of

THE GROUCH CHAIN

coming full circle to its originator, I am offering the following:

The Nuclear Option: including Nuclear War, Nuclear Escalation, Nuclear Proliferation, a factory set of Nuclear War Booster Packs, an additional set of Nuclear War Booster Packs, Nuclear War Bonus Pack #1 (additional country mats), a deck of blank Nuclear War cards so you can make your own hilarious Secrets, Top Secrets and weapons and the highly sought after "Got change for 25,000,000 people?" bumper sticker. Plus a microbadge coupon so that you can get your very own Nuclear War microbadge, featuring the infamous Supervirus.


This has been one of my favorite games since college. But since the release of Weapons of Mass Destruction, that's the only version I've been bringing to table. It's so portable and self-contained that all of the above have become superfluous, so the Grouch is looking for a good home for them.

This will remain open until 0400 PDT, Thursday, May 21,

Alas, due to recent events, I am going to have to set some rules for this chain which previously had none:

THE GROUCH CHAIN RULES:

This is a chain of generosity and is open to all BGG users world-wide, meaning that in choosing to participate, you agree that your generosity extends to covering shipping costs to the winner, wherever she or he may live. No welshing, no substitution and no whining. Any type of game - new or used - may be offered. If an item has no takers within one week, the prior winner's offer must be sweetened or replaced. The Grouch appreciates your compliance with these rules.

EDIT:

The only way to decide this, of course, is to spin the Nuclear Spinner and see who takes out the most people. We'll assume a 100 MT warhead each (base damage 25 million):

David: Dud warhead (no effect)
Erik: Lethal dose of radioactive gamma rays kill another 10 million
Andrew: Additional 1 million are engulfed in the fireball
Peter: Additional 1 million are engulfed in the fireball
Lance: Radioactive beta rays kill another 5 million
Shawn: No appreciable radioactive fallout
Paul: Lethal dose of radioactive gamma rays kill another 10 million
Jonny: Bomb shelters save 2 million
Michel: No appreciable radioactive fallout
Joe: Bomb shelters save 2 million
Doug: Explodes a nuclear stockpile! Triple the yield!

Triple the yield on a 100 MT warhead, as any good Nuclear war player knows, cracks the earth, killing everyone!!! In the game, nobody wins if that happens ("The only way to win is not to play".) In this case, Doug irrefutably take out the most people and is the lucky winner of a burnt cinder orbiting its primary at distance of approximately 93 million miles of all the fun and mayhem Nuclear War has to offer. Congratulations, Doug. And thank you all for playing.

Pick Me

Thanks UndeadViking for the great last offer and first name!

This is the final item in this list! Time to entertain and inspire.

This is item number: TEN in the Pick Me chain.

Here's how the "Pick Me" chain works: I put up an item and if you'd like to get it you have to get me to pick you. You do this by leaving a comment for the item, describing the item(s) you're willing to offer up as next in the chain. It doesn't have to be a game, it just has to be creative and/or cool. I will pick what I think is the coolest item. People can help me decide what's coolest by thumbing the item they like the most. However, I am free to ignore public opinion.

If I pick you, you list your item, and give people some time to leave comments, then you pick what you think is the coolest item from the comments left for your entry in the chain.

This process is repeated at 10 times. The 10th item listed is the FINAL item in the chain. The rules for winning the 10th item are special. Leave a comment that is thoughtful, inspiring, witty, or strange indicating why you should get the 10th item. The public will vote on who should get the 10th with their thumbs. Do NOT thumb your own comment. You can only thumb 1 comment. You can change your vote up to the deadline. The person who is listing the 10th item decides any ties.


Here are the possible prizes. The winner will get to choose one of these three options:


The Instant Abstract Collection
Twelve abstract games plus a book filled with abstract game ideas! You will get:

Gobblet

Classic Edition in wooden box

Blokus 3D

Plastic version

Hive

Wooden version

Blokus Duo


Quoridor

Travel version

Cathedral

Travel version

Quarto!

Travel version (Marks on the outer box where tape came off, otherwise great shape.)

Pylos

Travel version

Twixt


King's Gate


Pente

Blue box version

Focus

Domination version. Box in rough shape but all pieces are there.

A Gamut of Games

Hard cover version. Full of good abstract games.

Trias


Fifth Avenue

Rio Grande version with river tiles

Carcassonne: Inns & Cathedrals


Carcassonne: The Princess & the Dragon

Not an area control guy? How about this instead?

This also includes the Duel in the Dark Expansion "The Complete Edition".


Let the games begin! I will end this on May 25th.



*** Results ***

It looks like NinjaBob won! I guess it is easy to inspire via free games for your friends. Congrats to him and his crew!

This is a very good (played) copy of Gettysburg. It is complete, and it good shape.

ABSTRACT CHAIN




Chaos Chess


This chain is for folks that enjoy giving abstract games to others.
Previous offers include:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24780/item/923107#item...
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24780/item/928390#item...
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24780/item/939814#item...

Like the original Generosity Chain, this chain has some fairly simple rules:

Step 1: The originator of the this chain (and each subsequent winner) offers to give away a game that is officially categorized as an "Abstract Strategy" game (you can use the BGG search engine to find games that meet that criteria) and posts the date (typically a couple days or so) that the drawing will be held in the item description. (Sweeteners may also be added if desired). No Public Domain Abstacts allowed (Chess, Checkers..etc) and the game must be complete and in good playable shape.

Step 2A: Anybody that would like to receive the offered game (for free) adds a comment to the Geeklist item offered indicating a desire to receive the game. Pithy text may be added to the comment entry but is not required. You may also click the thumbs up button on the offered item if you think it is worthy and you are into the whole thumbing thing (but this is also not required).
Step 2B: If nobody expresses an interest in the item offered by the established deadline, the offerer should start over with Step 1 using a different game.

Step 3: On the date established, the current offerer will choose a winner of the offered item using a random picking process.

Step 4: The name of the winner is posted at the bottom of the description of the offer, the offerer (now called the sender) also sends a GeekMail to the winner notifying him, and initiates a one-sided Trade Offer using the BGG trade system.

Step 5: The sender ships the game to the winner.

Step 6. The winner becomes the new offerer and steps 1-6 are repeated.
Note: This means that anybody that wins must now give away a game of their own. If you don't like that idea, please don't play.
Special Note on Shipping: Sender pays shipping, unless he indicates upfront in his offer that the recipient will be required to pay and under what terms (International shipping, etc). Anyone signing up to receive an item where the description states that the recipient pays shipping is agreeing to do so by adding a comment.

If you have a question about the eligibility of a specific game or other specific question, the originator of the chain,

may need to address it.




Ok, so I'm offering a copy of Micropul to this chain. I hope this counts, and it's actually pretty popular.
You get to pick one of the sets above (yellow/red or the Machines) and I'll throw in the rules copy shown, and some counters/tokens for playing. Tiles were mounted to 4mil floor tile, and so the backs aren't exactly the same. I can throw in a bag to compensate for that (Crown Royal Bag) They are also laminated.

I"m also throwing in a PnP copy of Chaos Chess. (See pictures above). You'll get the rule book, and the cards and counters. (printed on 110lb cardstock in B+W - the game isn't in color)


I'll let this run for about a week. I'll close it off next Tuesday sometime, probably early. Just post to say if you are in.

I'll cover worldwide shipping!


-Have you read all the rules? If you haven't make sure you know what you are getting yourself into if you are in . Enjoy!

*I knew I would forget something. shake I forgot the title.



Who wins?
I rolled a 20 sided die (couldn't find a d8 quickly enough) and it rolled a "3".
So, Angry Duck wins!
Congrats!

GROUCH CHAIN

I am offering a sealed copy of IRON DRAGON.

THE GROUCH CHAIN RULES:

This is a chain of generosity and is open to all BGG users world-wide, meaning that in choosing to participate, you agree that your generosity extends to covering shipping costs to the winner, wherever she or he may live. No welshing, no substitution and no whining. Any type of game - new or used - may be offered. If an item has no takers within one week, the prior winner's offer must be sweetened or replaced. The Grouch appreciates your compliance with these rules.

This will go to June 2nd, 2009.

UPDATE:
Did I say IRON DRAGON?
I met Nogard Nori. Its a game about Nori and his search for the seven sun stones in Middle Earth. Along the way, he will encounter Gandalf, who is down and out and working at a Nazgul wash. Gimli makes an appearance as a door to door seller of kitchen knives. This game is a hex and counter, area movement and is card driven. It also makes use of a highly plagiarized paragraph book for solo play. It contains, 15 player tokens, 500 cards for play, 50 page rule book (basic play) and a 1000 page paragraph book.


AND THE WINNER
Here are your random numbers:

I'm offering up a new unplayed copy of Mage Master. This is a low complexity, Simple combat , no dice for the movement game in the Runebound vain. Start out as a basic wizard with only limited magic ability, you travel the land in search of means to increase your power... Tere are even Kangaroo's (now many other games have that)
Really this isn't a bad game, just hindered by a poor rule book.

Cheap Chain!

Passing on some games that were replaced multiple times after being lost in Hurricane Katrina.

You get to choose from one of these two items:

1. A Copy of Save Doctor Lucky from Cheapass Games



It appears to have never been played. It comes in the cardboard tuck envelope and not the paper envelope.

2. A Rubik's Sudoku - It's a pegboard type of thing for helping you solve Sudoku puzzles. It's pretty much useless as far as I'm concerned, but you can have mine. It's been opened and used, but all of the pieces are there.



And the following two items are included!

3. A copy of Give me the Brain! from Cheapass games.

 


It also appears to have never been played. It's the one in the pink box.

4. Two Game packs for Pirates of the Spanish Main -- Unlimited Edition. Totally unopened. I have no idea what is inside.



Include which item you want in the comment. I'll make my selection on June 5th or June 6th.

=== Edit June 5 ,2009 ===

HOT OR NOT reboot!

So, after much crosstalk, gnashing of teeth, and attempted gouging by the USPS, I'm offering the following, slightly off-topic but I hope exciting deal.

The gist of it is, Virgin Megastores are closing, everywhere. The last one is right here in New York City, and the fire sale continues for another two weeks with a surprisingly strong and varied stock remaining (they shipped everything from the Orlando store up here a few days ago). There are still mostly-full sections of games (video, not board), as well as DVDs, CDs, an aisle of blu-ray disks, and even large numbers of vinyl records and books. They also have Virgin t-shirts, if you like that sort of thing.

So my offer is to be YOUR PERSONAL SHOPPER. Comment with a list of titles, genres, platforms, etc. and I will do my best to accommodate your needs. Be specific if you really want something in particular (keeping in mind the notes on selection, below), or keep it general if you want to be surprised. Don't forget to thumb!

The opening offer is $15, AFTER liquidation discounts. When last I checked a few days ago, that should get you two CDs, two of most DVDs, one new-release/extra-special-edition DVD, or one slightly older (2008 or earlier) video game. I think the discount has increased since then, as well, putting newer video games in play, as well as TV season sets, Criterion DVDs, and maybe blu-rays? (I didn't check the price on blu-rays as I don't own a player). Pretty much any book will fit the bill, too.

And because this is (theoretically) a board game chain, I'll toss in a copy of Saga as well, new in shrink, if you like.


EDIT: No thumbs after 48 hours means the offer goes up to $20. With a now-40% discount across the board, this puts basically everything in the store into play except incredibly popular/large DVD box sets (if you really want something that's over $20 I'll buy it and ask for the price difference via paypal or check). Two or even three CDs are also possible, as well as video games for all platforms, even recent releases. I will also happily offer a $20 gift Funagain certificate instead. Saga is still included if you want it. All in all, you could easily walk away with over $50 worth of stuff here.


A note on selection: products were current through about April or so, which means the recent crop of Oscar contenders were all in heavy supply, as well as recent video games and accessories for all platforms except PC (they have Endwar, and a WoW expansion). Book selection is a bit scattershot - audiobooks, science-fiction paperbacks, and manga/comics/graphic novels are still in high stock, but Virgin never pretended to compete with B&N; if you want a book let me know the sort of thing you're interested in, rather than requesting a specific title, and Ill do my best.

The sooner someone wins, the sooner I go to the store, which also means better selection. Futhermore, if you win and wish to give me a phone number, I will even call you as I shop so that you get exactly what you want. Or I can surprise you. Winner's choice!

----------------------------

The Origins of Hot or Not http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24780/item/744765#item...

Rules:

1. The first item offered must be a game that is still in shrink, or at the very most, opened, and sparsely played (if at all) and in "like new" condition.

2. The game offered has 48 business hours to get at least 6 thumbs. If it does not get 6 thumbs then the person who offered the game must add something to the mix. If you are forced to add something to sweeten the pot, it does not have to be another game, it can be anything - GeekGold, dice, a DVD, anything at all. This must be done every 24 business hours until you get 6 thumbs OR 3 items are offered.

3. If the first game offered should get 6 thumbs before 48 business hours have gone by, the person offering the game can close their offer and draw at that time. This is to prevent people from holding out for sweeteners and giving the offer a sense of urgency. If you wait too long, you might miss out!

4. The Chain will continue until UndeadViking wins another game, and wants to end the chain. This means it will be a "closed chain" of generosity. However, UndeadViking has several games he plans on offering, so he hopes to keep this going for some time, as long as interest continues.

5. Remember, if you want to throw your name into the hat, you have to give the geeklist entry a thumbs up. Responses of "I'm in!" and the like will NOT put you in the running for the game.

Thanks to Jeremiah Lee for restarting.

And now for something a little different - I'm offering up the whole solar system as a bettlefield.

The game is The Final Frontier: Man's Expansion into the Solar System, Designed By Kerry Anderson Published By Fiery Dragon Productions (Packaged in the nice tin). Lightly used.



BGG Description:

An ambitious game, The Final Frontier incorporates space exploration and combat, space-surface interaction, multiple types of movement (within and between systems), colonization and mining, economics, and the effect of national interest on Earth. Players represent global powers competing to expand into, colonize, and exploit the solar system, within the context of global conflict and economic problems. Game scale is 2 months per turn and one AU per hex. Components include a map, 280 counters, player aid sheets, and the rules.

A New Chain of Generosity!!!
The Hand Crafted Chain


Here are the rules:
1) Enter with a comment
2) The game you offer must be handmade by you - an artscow deck you made would qualify
3) There is a Ko rule (A play is illegal if it would have the effect (after all steps of the play have been completed) of creating a position that has occurred previously in the game) There is No repeats in this chain - once offered a game can not be offered again.

Thats it.


I'm offering up my Hand made copy of Joseph Huber's Joust. In fact I'm offering up the exact set pictured


Special Joust pawns, laminated board and cards...I real tresure you can own!

Good Luck


I'm closing this one down due to lack of interest...,someone else can start up a hand crafted chain...to bad.

Good gaming to all

A fun game designed by Dr. Reiner Knizia himself - and it has pirates!

Did I mention pirates?

Some wear on box, cards new in shrink.

I will randomly select someone in a week or so, or whenever there's a suffcient amount of wanters.

I'm going to call this one...

A trusty D4 rolls a...4!

Many Thanks to Peter Loop for putting up Mage Master. I'm offering up an unplayed but punched copy of the Evil Polish Brothers game, Monster Mash. It looks interesting, but I know I will never get around to playing it.

I will draw for this on June 9th around nine pm (EST) if folks are interested in the game.

Ok, not much interest generated here so I am adding two more games to the offering:

Inkognito: The Card Game

and

Caesar & Cleopatra

That's right you get ALL THREE! Inkognito the card game components are still in shrink/unpunched (box has had shrink wrap removed however) and Caesar and Cleopatra is a German version but an English translation is included. Hopefully this will spark some interest! Due to the listing changing, I will move the drawing to June 11 at 9:00 pm (EST).

(Vryolakas 1-2)
(fractaloon 3-4)
(UndeadViking 5-6)

Rolling a trusty D6 bought at GenCon 2005 for just such an occasion and the roll is........6!!

Congratulations Undead Viking!

Also, when I pack it, I will use other games as padding instead of peanuts as much as possible. I can't tell you what games they'll be yet because I don't know myself!

Drawing occurs Monday, 15 June 2009.

ABSTRACT CHAIN

Many thanks to Andrew for choosing me as the last winner.

For my offering, I'm putting up a copy of Pyraos. It is the classic version from Gigamic. The box is showing some wear, but the game is in excellent condition.

"Chicks dig it. If you own it, they will come."




THE RULES

Step 1: The originator of the this chain (and each subsequent winner) offers to give away a game that is officially categorized as an "Abstract Strategy" game (you can use the BGG search engine to find games that meet that criteria) and posts the date (typically a couple days or so) that the drawing will be held in the item description. (Sweeteners may also be added if desired). No Public Domain Abstacts allowed (Chess, Checkers..etc) and the game must be complete and in good playable shape.

Step 2A: Anybody that would like to receive the offered game (for free) adds a comment to the Geeklist item offered indicating a desire to receive the game. Pithy text may be added to the comment entry but is not required. You may also click the thumbs up button on the offered item if you think it is worthy and you are into the whole thumbing thing (but this is also not required).

Step 2B: If nobody expresses an interest in the item offered by the established deadline, the offerer should start over with Step 1 using a different game.

Step 3: On the date established, the current offerer will choose a winner of the offered item using a random picking process.

Step 4: The name of the winner is posted at the bottom of the description of the offer, the offerer (now called the sender) also sends a GeekMail to the winner notifying him, and initiates a one-sided Trade Offer using the BGG trade system.

Step 5: The sender ships the game to the winner.

Step 6: The winner becomes the new offerer and steps 1-6 are repeated.
Note: This means that anybody that wins must now give away a game of their own. If you don't like that idea, please don't play.

Deadline: I will close this chain on Sunday, 6/14.

Special Note on Shipping: Sender pays shipping, unless he indicates upfront in his offer that the recipient will be required to pay and under what terms (International shipping, etc). Anyone signing up to receive an item where the description states that the recipient pays shipping is agreeing to do so by adding a comment.

I will ship worldwide.


Peter Loop is the winner. Chain closed.

CONSOLATION CHAIN

...where "losers" like me are KING! Why? Because the one rule of THE CONSOLATION CHAIN is this: you can not participate if you have won more than one game offered in this geeklist. So, finally, you can become one of the "winners".

See entry 109 for the Consolation Chain list of who is not eligible:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24780/item/751644#item

Winner can choose one of the two games below.

MUNCHKIN IMPOSSIBLE NOTTINGHAM




Shipping to the contiguous 48 states is free and I will pay 10.00 towards international.

I will close this auction in one week and choose a winner at random.

Hello all,

Sorry about the delay in posting. I am still in shock over actually winning something.

Thanks again to milandoug for the copy of Iron Dragon.

I am offering a lightly played copy of Avalon Hill's Road Kill. Included with the game is a copy of Volume 5, Issue 1 of The Boardgamer with a variant article on playing the game solitaire.

I will let this run until June 15th and randomly choose the winner at that time.


After a quick stop over at random.org, the winner is:

all 4 frenzy decks. 3 in shrink, 1 opened but unplayed

PLUS

1 pocket sized Chinese & International chess set. It's approximately 4"x4" with cool wood disks. Disks have standard chess pieces on one side & some sort of Chinese symbols on the other. Also includes a folding paper chess board. It's pretty cool & somewhat interesting if you're in to such things.

I'll let this run a week or so.

Grognard Chain

And likely SFCONSIM-L veterans, at that, because this is in response to my winning The Final Frontier: Man's Expansion into the Solar System by famed 1980's SF ground combat designer Kerry Anderson.

Keeping that theme going (sort of), here's the first of two items up for grabs: WorldKiller. An interesting design from when SPI was experimenting with all sorts of weird ideas, this one does 3-D by representing a stack of cubes in each board square. Ships move and attack by Pythagorean theorem, which isn't as bad as it sounds because you get a table of rounded-off solutions so you don't actually need to do any equations. There's not much room for chrome, but the minimalist rules do a good job of making you feel like there's a future history behind the game rather than a bunch of space opera tropes.

Only fair condition -- because I played the hell out of it in 8th grade -- but I just moved and have 187 boxes left to unpack. So you get whatever I can unearth from the chaos. Besides, it's free!

Update 6/13: This is the boxed edition, not the Ares one; as you grogs of the era know, the only difference is a teeny six-sider and the box itself.


Not an SPI fan? OK, here's your second choice:



Invasion: Earth by GDW, ostensibly part of their Traveller line because it simulates something from early Imperial history (and includes a single page attempting to give you ways to use it with the RPG). In a way this is a sequel to Worldkiller, because it deals with the actual planetary assault that presumably occurs if the invaders win. As such, it includes a cool Dymaxion-style map of Earth and the usual straightforward GDW core rules with the equally-usual gobs of chrome.

In even worse condition, unfortunately, with a caved-in box bottom. But hey, you don't play the box.

Both of these have been on the Fat Messiah Library shelf for decades now, because they deal with a somewhat esoteric corner of the science fiction wargaming universe. But I think it's high time they got a chance to do something more useful than gather dust and hope to be used as reference for a Last Frontier: The Vesuvius Incident follow-on.

I apologize for the weak offering this time around (I am in the middle of remodeling my house and much of my collection is in boxes) but I will make it up to the winner by throwing a bunch of stuff into the box before I send it. Some random geek goodness combined with some cheap dollar store excitement. If I can find a weird random game to throw in I will do so as well.

I will let this run for the obligatory "week or so" before picking a winner.

*EDIT* Should have specified - It is the wood version of Hive

*edit #2* Just got hom from Father's Day dinner with my daugher Rilyn and I had her pick a name from my Twins hat.

The winner is...Dujo! GM will be sent shortly - congrats and thanks to everyone for your interest!

Hot-or-Not Chain!

Bah...I've been bad. Sorry about the delay in putting up a new addition to the chain. I'll start with a favorite and see how it goes.

I'm offering a copy of Modern Art. This is the newer, small box version from Mayfair. It is unplayed, still in shrink.

EDIT: After only 2 thumbs in 48 hours, adding on to maybe get more thumb traffic...

ADDING An In shrink copy of Uberplay's California



And now the rules of the chain:

The Origins of Hot or Not http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/24780/item/744765#item...

Rules:

1. The first item offered must be a game that is still in shrink, or at the very most, opened, and sparsely played (if at all) and in "like new" condition.

2. The game offered has 48 business hours to get at least 6 thumbs. If it does not get 6 thumbs then the person who offered the game must add something to the mix. If you are forced to add something to sweeten the pot, it does not have to be another game, it can be anything - GeekGold, dice, a DVD, anything at all. This must be done every 24 business hours until you get 6 thumbs OR 3 items are offered.

3. If the first game offered should get 6 thumbs before 48 business hours have gone by, the person offering the game can close their offer and draw at that time. This is to prevent people from holding out for sweeteners and giving the offer a sense of urgency. If you wait too long, you might miss out!

4. The Chain will continue until UndeadViking wins another game, and wants to end the chain. This means it will be a "closed chain" of generosity. However, UndeadViking has several games he plans on offering, so he hopes to keep this going for some time, as long as interest continues.

5. Remember, if you want to throw your name into the hat, you have to give the geeklist entry a thumbs up. Responses of "I'm in!" and the like will NOT put you in the running for the game.


UPDATE!: OK...looks like I got 6 while I was away, so drawing a winner.

Using the following and random.org:

1- UndeadViking
2- jebry
3- RowdyRodimus
4- noddingoff
5- SurfinDecoy
6- personwholives



Congratulations UndeadViking!

GEEK CHAIN

There appears to be no rules for the geek chain, so I will make my own.

1) You MUST be a geek to enter, OR
2) you MUST be wedded to a geek, OR
3) you MUST have a geek somewhere in your family lineage, OR
4) you MUST have met AND spoken with a geek for AT LEAST 5 minutes within the PAST 10 YEARS, OR
5) you MUST have played a geek on TV.

If you do not meet these criteria, then I'm sorry, you do not qualify.

Galactic Destiny is new in the shrinkwrap.

Please indicate your interest by adding a comment. I will randomly determine a winner on June 27th.

It's June 27th! Time to determine someone's galactic destiny. Since I don't own any 5-sided dice, I have opened a tab onto random.org. And the winner is....
