Erik Warnes (unixrevolution) had initiated the BGG chain of generosity which has been going strong since then. Unfortunately, global mail prices can be quite high, probably making the list a little uninteresting for non-Americans (though a few do regulary participate in the chain). With this GeekList I'll try to play my part to make a similar chain avaiblable to all Europeans (thanks, Jack (anglotiger), for the suggestion of a seperate GL!). Over the years more generous Geeks started different chains and we currently have the following running all across Europe:

Original Chain of Generosity and Pay It Forward Chain (Board Games / more largish game offers)
Woolly Shrubbery Chain and The JAGGY Chain (Board or card games)
Shane Chain and The Shane Chain - part deux (Board or card games)
Original Card Game Chain and Second Card Game Chain (Card games only)
Game parts, Miniatures and Small Expansions Chain (as it says-should fit into a stuffed envelope or small box)
The Delicacies Chain (local sweet or salty treats plus something gaming related - needs to alternate between countries)
The ALEGRIA Chain (only for kids, youngsters and party games - no problem if the adults like them, too)
The JOGO EU Chain (board games, card games and anything gaming related) (JogoEu blog)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The rules (shamelessy but with thanks copied from the global chain):

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. Please do not wait until you receive your win before offering a game of your own - its all about generosity.
3. Set a deadline of around 5 to 10 days.
4. In the event that no offers are made on your game within the deadline, try a different game in its place and set a new deadline.
5. If you wish to start a new 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.
6. 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.

AND NOW HAVE FUN SPREADING GENEROSITY AROUND EUROPE!

And on goes the very original

Woolly Shrubbery Chain - CLOSED

I thought I had seen some shrubbery at the back of my wardrobe. I also thought unloading it in this chain would be a good idea. Well. Now that the time has come I cannot find it any more, so we'll have to make do with games instead. Apologies!

Get your copy of Klaus Teuber's Spiel des Jahres 1991! This is the German edition by Hans im Glück Verlags-GmbH but the game only has a teensy tiny language dependency on the voting cards.

The box unfortunately has a split corner, but the contents are in great condition.


As an alternative, there's one for the cowboys with Klaus Teuber's (notice a theme yet?) Gnadenlos!



German edition by KOSMOS, language-independent, played once.

This item will close on Monday, June 28, sometime in the evening. Good luck!

--

So, what better randomization device is there these days than a penalty shootout? Out comes the copy of Finale.

I'll draw a random goal keeper, and five random players per entrant. Those five players will each shoot one penalty. Each three shots (ie. one per team, the goalie will turn (and thus change his current strength). Whoever has scored the most goals afterwards wins. In case of a tie, all teams continue shooting, restarting with the first players of each team, until one comes out a goal ahead.

For those not familiar with Finale: The goalie as well as each player has a nominal value and gets to throw one die ranging from 0 to 3. Numbers are totalled, and if the attacker has a larger value than the goalkeeper it's a goal.

So, let's see:

Random goalkeeper: Ralf Tentakel
This means the players will have to beat a 4 / 3 / 4 / 3 / 4, respectively. This is not going to be easy.

The teams:
rorshaq: Harald Grätsche (5), Gregor Graser (3), Igor Brutalnikov (4), Manni Metzger (3), Wladimir Ballnich (2)

Pedrator: Ronny Tricksler (4), Gerd Rumsteher (2), Martin Niedurch (4), Kalle Hartbein (3), Ballbino (5)

Settler_of_Agricola: Clint Durchschuss (3), Manni Fernschuss (3), Timo Brecher (4), Alexander Trifft (2), Paul Walze (4)

Nominally, this means Pedrator sets out with the strongest set of players (18), closely followed by Rorshaq (17) and the Settler (16).

Ralf Tentakel takes his place on the line. The commotion doesn't seem to perturb him at all. It will be interesting to see whether all players will be able to shrug off the constant buzz of the vuvuzelas this easily...

--

Round 1:

Harald Grätsche: 5 + 0 vs. 4 + 3 - saved
Ronny Tricksler: 4 + 1 vs. 4 + 1 - missed
Clint Durchschuss: 3 + 0 vs. 4 + 1 - missed

All three miss! The score is still tied. Pedrator, are you also English by any chance?

Round 2:

Gregor Graser: 3 + 1 vs. 3 + 3 - saved again
Gerd Rumsteher: 2 + 0 vs. 3 + 2 - looks like he aimed for the wrong goal...
Manni Fernschuss: 3 + 2 vs. 3 + 1 - GOAL!!!

Settler_of_Agricola takes the lead!

Round 3:

Igor Brutalnikov: 4 + 3 vs. 4 + 0 - GOAL!!!
Martin Niedurch: 4 + 3 vs. 4 + 1 - GOAL!!!
Timo Brecher: 4 + 2 vs. 4 + 2 - phew! That was close, but Ralf Tentakel turned it around the post.

The other teams seem to have woken up now. The score is once again tied.

Round 4:

Manni Metzger: 3 + 1 vs. 3 + 2 - another fabulous save by Ralf Tentakel
Kalle Hartbein: 3 + 1 vs. 3 + 2 - and not letting up, either
Alexander Trifft: 2 + 3 vs. 3 + 1 - GOAL!!!

Settler_of_Agricola scores again, retaking the lead. Only one shot left per player. It's getting hotter!

Round 5:

Wladimir Ballnich: 2 + 2 vs. 4 + 1 - uh oh, the ball goes wide. It looks like rorshaq is out of the running - unless Pedrator ties the score and keeps both of them afloat...

Ballbino: 5 + 3 vs. 4 + 3 - GOAL!!! Pedrator's star player hammers the ball home. Ralf Tentakel almost got his tentacles on it, but he'd probably just have hit the net ahead of the ball in that case.

Only one shot to go. Currently Pedrator and Settler_of_Agricola are tied for the lead. If the Settler manages to sink this ball it's all over. If not, we'll start over.

The drama, the suspense...

Paul Walze: 4 + 2 vs. 4 + 1 - GOAL!!!

This is it! The underdog runs away with the cake. The dice have spoken, and for once it's not me who has lost.

Congratulations, Settler, and well played!

Pay it forward chain CLOSED

Okay a little different this time. The problem I just have too many games that just don't get played enough - solution this item.

I will be drawing a winner who will get the item they select as thier most wanted item. So winner get what they want and they are the person who carries on the chain.

After the winner has been selected I will draw for every game on the list that someone expressed an interest in.

Any game that no one wants I will give a funeral pyre for or maybe give to a charity shop.

Pandemic First edition - English (awaiting the replacement cards) with very little language dependency

Coloretto In little used condition English with no dependency

Trax English No dependency

Ticket to Ride: USA 1910 New in shrink English No language dependency

Ticket to Ride: The Dice Expansion Little used English no dependency

Atlanteon English little dependency



So when going in for thiis please put
a) item most wanted
b) Interested in receiving as a runner up

This will run until Saturday 10th July

Okay this has been up for a few hours and I think I need to clarify a little.

The runner up items you can add as many of the listed games as you would genuinely want to recieve. Essentially everything must go.


Person to continue the chain ravenhoe who gets coloretto.

Pandemic goes to Virtuair
Trax goes to Ceryon
Ticket to ride 1910 expansion goes to zwobot
Ticket to ride Dice expansion goes to boudie
Atlanteon goes to Cafeine

ORIGINAL CHAIN OF GENEROSITY:

I offer up this WWII set wargame by West End Games.
It is used but in good condition. The game is in English an quite language dependent.

If anyone is in I will draw a name on Monday 5th July.

I will use the Games for Geekgold July 2010 - The Vuvuzela Edition to decide the winner. The latest addition to the list is for a job lot of Carcassonne and it's many expansions (added by Troy Bowers). As of 9.45 AM 5th July 2010 the gold tipped totals 302. I will check the total GG tipped again at 1900 GMT this evening. If the total ends with an odd number Henrik Wins, If it ends with an even number Pedro wins.

Game on.


OK results are in. As of 1900 the Carcassonne lot has accumulated a grand total of ...... 313 GG. (I have a screenshot if you want confirmation) which means Henrik is the lucky recipient of Western Front Tank Leader.Geekmail on its way. Commiserations to Pedro

So... We need a new game for the Woolly Shrubbery Chain. Let's see.


I offer the Leo Colovini Game Go West (german edition, new & in shrink). English rules (print out) included if you wish.
BGG voters say "no necessary in-game text", so it should be language independent.


If you don't like that game, how about Heart of Africa?


Also german edition, new & in shrink. English rules (print out) included if you wish!


Ok, now let's see who's interested...

I'll draw the winner on thursday, the eighth of july.

Edit: Ok, since Pedrator seems the only one interested, let's see who get's "Go West". So i'm rolling my 1 and i get: 1! Congratulations, Mr. Perreira!

Keeping alive the deep-rooted tradition in high quality games of the oh so holy Woolly Shrubbery Chain

I offer you!

Tiki Topple



A lighthearted family game with fantastic components, even the board is simply great! It has been played but is like new... unfortunately, my copy came with a few of the cards marked, it's nothing really very bad, you can play it perfectly, but I thought I should psychologically prepare you... anyaway, great if you got some kids, but also adults will have fun with this totally unpredictable game!

Original rules in English.


You no liky Tiki Topple? Why not have a go on:

Shear Panic



It's the german Zoch edition but original rules come in English as well. This is the one that comes with the very useful board, and the already well-known fantastic sheep! Roger being the star of course.

- Played but like new!



Still not happy? Well... why not another go on the infamous (and almost a trademark regarding the games I put up for grabs):
Squad 7



New, in shrink, badass gun version. Portuguese/Spanish edition but language independent. Rules are available in English in the Geek (even if you can read portuguese or spanish [or both] I'd still recomend the English, PT and SP translations suck!)


Lucky winner will be drawn on the 19th of July.

Good luck!

Well, well... that's a staggering 13 contestants!! My personal record I believe.

I'll be drawing the winner tonight, but I would appreciate if someone could help me out with a neat idea on how to select the winner! Any thoughts? If no idea comes up I'll use a boring random card-draw at random.org

anyway, contestants are:
And I'm going to do the boring card draw at random.org. Am using spades from Ace-King which is exactly 13 cards, so the lucky draw gets the game:

TMVM is Aces
Talismanisland is two
bouldie is three
ousgg is four
Ravenhoe is five
Settlers_of_Agricola is six
Ed_the_Red is seven
Viking Fury is eight
HRune is out! just kidding... you're nine (mumble mumble)
Grimwold is ten
Cyberian is Jack
Me 262 Schwalbe (nice nick...) is Queen
Kellkus us King


And lucky draw is!

3 of spades!!! Timestamp: 2010-07-19 20:22:08 UTC

Winner is bouldie!! Fantastic! Lucky you!

236. Board Game: Händler auf dem Forum Romanum [Average Rating:6.50 Unranked]

mbmbmbmbmb
Original Card game chain Closed

whoops, I thought I already put my next item in, but apparently not, blush so here we go:

Next up is Händler auf dem Forum Romanum, a card game that plays like a board game for 3 to 5 players (it says 4 on the box, but according to the author it plays just as well with 3, which I tried and can testify for) Rules are in german, no text on the cards, so once you know how to play it, you're fine. There are english rules here on BGG

I really like this rare game, so I bought 2 copies, so I could give one away. So I guess this is the best occasion to let somebody else enjoy it.

In my humble opinion there is a Wallace-like quality to this fairly unknown card game. It has nice feel of suspense and good screwage, rulewise it's not too hard, and if you can stand one counterintuitive rule (prices of goods rise when the availability rises) you might love this game as well.

According to the author, there are only 500 copies of this game. Which is a shame, because I really think it deserves more attention.

Offer closes sunday 18 july 14.00 C.E.T. (I'm working saturday night)

Edit for the winner: ok, lots of takers.

1. pidaysock
2. Vincent_V
3. ousgg
4. VikingFury
5. rorshaq
6. Cyberian
7. Ceryon
8. TMVM
9. fizzle
10. Settler_of_Agricola
11. spellen


11 is one more than my D10 can handle, and I don't seem to have a D12, so it's off to random.org

Since this is a card game, I let random.org draw a random card out of 11 (with ace as 1, and jack as 11) and the result is:



So congratulations Ceryon!!! I hope you'll enjoy the game as much as I do.

For all the others that really want this game: maybe the designer will be at Spiel 2010 as well as last year, of you might contact him directly

I have not won anything in a while and I have so much generosity stored up in my head, it's literally running out of my ears. (Did you know generosity is yellowbrownish?)
So to get rid of some generosity I'm starting a new chain:

(seed, seed, seed. If you keep on seeding like that you'll turn into a seed.)

You can chosse between these two:

MacArthur's Return: Leyte 1944
Unpunched and unplayed.

or

Blood on the Snow: The Battle of Suomussalmi
Someone tried so clip a few of the counters. Without a jig...

I'm stretching rule 3 from the heading a bit but not more than anyone should. Hint Hint. So this wil be up until Sunday 25.07.10 at around 1300.

Edit: You'll also get a copy on the great dutch war movie Soldier of Orange on dvd!

THE ORIGINAL CHAIN OF GENEROSITY

here we go.

It's the German Edition and the german Rulebook comes with it. But the gameparts are language-independent.

It really feels like the boardgame, and it's great if you want the T&E experience when you can't take the big box with you.

I will draw the winner on July 25th, 7 PM CET.

1. Ben Bateson
2. Pedro Pereira

Pedro - thank you for the flowers.... äh, the Tiki Topple.... whistle

Hello gamers, I make the new offer for the

Wooly shrubbery chain Closed
(whatever this should be.... surprise )

If you want, you can get a copy of Urland. Game is in good condition, the rules and game components are in english/german, so I hope there will be some interested guys.

This item is open up to sunday, the 25th of july.

Bye, Boudie

Hello guys,

This time I will determine the winner in a completly different way than the others:
I searched through the whole Geeklist and found the one, who hasn´t won any game so far. In my opinion it seems to be a good idea to let this one have a chance to offer another good game for us all.

And who is this one?

Ta-ta-ta-taaaaaaaaaaaaa: Tommy Fix (flugt73)

Okay, Tommy, now it´s your turn!

Woolly Shrubbery Chain - Closed

Because I have lost several times, I won? This reminds me of Wallenstein.
Thank you, Boudie!
I hope with this offer, I can keep up the good tradition of quality games in this chain.

You can choose up to 2 of the following 4 games:

1. Lost Valley, English rules (front cover bends in the sides, but no visible marks)

2. Bootleggers, English rules

3. Razzia!, unopened, German rules

4. Attila, German rules, with the designers autograph on the front cover, so it does not look like new

I will draw the winner on Sunday, the 1st august, 07.00pm Danish time.

Time for the draw:
I had planned on making it a World Cup, but could not convince my wife to play Tipp Kick for 1½ hours. Instead I chose to draw ala the German octopus "Paul", with my cat. I have taken 10 similar front covers, from the same shelf and placed them randomly on the living room floor. The box our cat first sits in wins. From right to left the games on that shelf is:

1. matildadad, Mission: Red Planet.
2. TMVM, Bohnanza, just kidding, Starfareres of Catan
3. Vincent_V, Star Wars: Queens Gambit
4. zwobot, Cosmic Encouter
5. pidaysock, Shogun
6. Brichs, Nexus Ops
7. Pedrator, Serenissima
8. VikingFury, Neuroshima Hex
9. Ahiksking, Löwenherz
10. rorshaq, Vinci

And here comes our cat, seeing the boxes, has a paw in Nexus, another one in Vinci, but sits down in the Shogun.
So the winner is pidaysock

OK, we have two entrants and I am watching the Test match cricket, so we'll let them decide who wins.

(Edit: the rain spoiled my initial choice of the score at the lunch break, so I've changed it to the tea break)

The tea break will be at approximately 4:00 today, and the number of runs England have scored at that point will decide the winner.

If it is ODD, then Fabio wins
If it is EVEN, then Peter wins.

The clock is ticking...

3.47 and early tea is being taken. England are 191/3. So that means Fabio has won!



Next up in The Original Chain of Generosity, we have this expansion for Thurn & Taxis.

Please note, this is a (large) expansion and requires Thurn & Taxis to play. It's the German edition, but is language-neutral and has the English rules enclosed

I'm keeping this one open until Saturday 7th August.

With apologies for the delay, here is the new offer in the

Wargames Chain of Generosity

counters punched and bagged, game in great shape and includes the magazine.

This game is quite good (I'm told it's one of Joe Miranda's best designs), and I hate to see it gathering dust on my shelves.

You'll also get Target Arnhem: Across 6 Bridges



Unpunched, MMP edition. One of the few Japanese wargames, and a good one too.

I'll let this run till Sunday, August 8 (anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of Amiens).

Edit: You'll also get a copy of La 317ème section, a french movie by Pierre Schoendoerffer about a French platoon isolated behind enemy lines in Indochina in 1954. One of the few movies about the Indochina war, a little-known classic.

EDIT: It looks very much like I am currently the winner of both the first and second card game chains! So, unless anyone has any objections, what I intend to do is temporarily merge the chains, and draw two winners for this game. Obviously, after that, the chains will go separately again. It's just easier to keep track of for me this way.

I'm having a flurry of wins at the minute, and it's me to continue the...

First...and Second...Card Game Chain

Metallurgy is a little-known gem, a tasteful and simple card game which looks beautiful on the table. I really want to get more people to know this game, as it absolutely does not deserve to be way down in the 4000 rankings. I mean, it's lower than Cranium, for heavens' sake!

I promise you that this is a much better game than its ranking, and I'll will buy the winner one of the for-sale games here in the Marketplace (which one I buy you will obviously depend on the location of the winner). All I ask is that you please give it a good playtest and an honest rating when you get it.

Some love for Metallurgy please!

Offer closed!!!

Four entrants, two winners to pick. And, because I'm too idle to get up and find a game to do random entries with, I shall use Random.org

Numbers generated: 4 and 3

CLOSED Woolly Shrubbery Chain CLOSED

Next up is one truely shrubbery-kind-of game: Zorro, by Andreas Seyfarth - who should not be an unknown to you.

It's a game that features 3D buildings.

condition: The box was glued with brown tape at one corner (not by me!).
One bandit is missing... I can include a hobbit from the search - but I am not sure if its Merry from that box or from a different game.
language dependency: Rules only.


Alternatively you can get...

Also a rare gem: Die Schlangen von Delhi by Manfred Franz.
.

condition: the box is squished... and it has some play.
language dependency: rules only.

Or...

Space Pigs by Pascal Bernard.

I offered this before... maybe somebody is now the mood to brew some space beer...

condition: complete.
language dependency: Sadly - strong language dependency... cards, player summeries... and rules - all in German.



Because this is the 250th item in this geeklist will one person receive 25 who enters in this drawing.


You can spent this on GfGG for example


Edit: I forgot to add a closing date:
Let's just take the 14th of August - before my panicking||picnicking event in the Tiergarten.


Once again my randomization methods can remain hidden. Har har har!

Arne, you are the lucky winner!
A Geekmail is on it's way.

The Original Chain of Generosity

And... to continue the chain, while I'm still on holyday, I offer this little but very fun game. It is in very good condition, english edition.

I'll keep this open up to 3rd of september, when I'll be back at home and will sort out the winner... :-)

CLOSED

Later in the day I'll sort out a winner from the ten brave contestants

AND THE WINNER IS....

It took me more than I expected to sort out the winner, since I had to convince my little son (2 yr old) to choose from one of the ten tiny pieces of paper I wanted to use for the ....lottery.
But he wanted to play with the sheeps from Shear Panic... So I assigned a number to each of the sheeps plus the shearer and asked him to took one.

It was a red sheep with the number... 2!

So the winner is:
