What are you doing!? I don't even know you!
mbmbmbmbmb
CLOSED. Thanks for all your bids, I am very happy with my newfound wealth. Drawing the second winner now.

Hello everybody,
I am happy to say that I'm back. I am unhappy to say that while I wasn't really in a shape to list anything since January, I have still put my bids into other people's lotteries, so now I am geekgold broke. As you good chaps keep listing all this nice stuff, I need to refill my coffers quickly... and it's late in the month already. So to celebrate my return to the Games for Geekgold universe, I am spicing up my listing by picking two winners this month. Read the red section below (well, people read listings carefully before they bid anyway. Right?) for the details.
So get your early bids and your last minute bids in early - wait, what? Ah, come on, just make me rich again.

41st round of the "HilkMAN needs to get rid of a bunch of games"-lottery

Here are the remains of my previous months' lotteries. All games are the editions pictured, unless stated otherwise - if you are not sure, please ask. It's quite possible that I will add some more games to this entry later, depending on my time, so stay tuned, even if you don't see anything you like just yet.

Choose four (six) eight (ten) points worth of games from the list below (a winner with a German shipping address can choose an extra two points worth of games to reflect the lower shipping costs for me. Or s/he can haggle with me about the larger/heavier games on my For Trade list).

In June, there will be two winners. The first winner, drawn on the 25th of June, gets to choose normally. The second winner, drawn on the 29th, will be able to choose among the remainder of the items, using half the normal points (rounded up) available at the time of the second drawing (i.e., if the lottery stands at 500 on the 29th of June, s/he can pick three points worth of items, no matter what the total was at the time of the first drawing). I am putting a few days between the two drawings, hoping I can inform the procrastinators among you of the first winner's selection as quickly as possible so you can put your last minute bids in. Most winners choose quickly, so that should work out, but I cannot give an absolute guarantee for that, of course.

I am very open to negotiation. If the total reached doesn't get you the games you want, you can fill up to the level you need. Or you throw in some money for the shipping cost. Ask if you're not sure whether this is for you. I mainly just want to get rid of these games without going broke.

If this lottery reaches 500 , choose five points worth of games REACHED. Three points for the second winner.
If this lottery reaches 600 , choose six points worth of games REACHED.
If this lottery reaches 700 , choose seven points worth of games REACHED. Four points for the second winner.
If this lottery reaches 800 , choose eight points worth of games REACHED.
If this lottery reaches 900 , choose nine points worth of games REACHED. Five points for the second winner.
If this lottery reaches 1000 , choose ten points worth of games REACHED.
If this lottery reaches 1200 , choose eleven points worth of games REACHED. Six points for the second winner.
If this lottery reaches 1400 , choose twelve points worth of games REACHED.
If this lottery reaches 1600 , choose thirteen points worth of games REACHED. Seven points for the second winner.
If this lottery reaches 1800 , choose fourteen points worth of games
I might continue the progression in some way or the other if it really goes beyond that.

Final prize: 15 points to the first winner (congratulations, taen!), 8 points to the second winner.

Shipping is on me, worldwide. I am planning do the drawing on (or shortly after) the 25th (first winner) and 29th (second winner) of June.
1 gets you 1 entry.
5 get you 6 entries.
25 get you 35 entries.
There is no limit on bids.

Fish'n'Stones: Goldfish Essen 2014 giveaway. New.
Young Jedi CCG Pack with two 20 card sample decks. Not in shrink, but the cards appear to be new. I have three copies available. Take them off me.

Absacker Excellent condition, played once.
Anthem Excellent condition, played once.
Sword of Neurasthenia Excellent condition, played once.
Carcassonne cloth bag, unused

Wizards' RealmThis one is worse off than the Darok thing - really, really used. But I seem to be the only registered owner of this, so this is your chance.


Feenbalz New (box isn't shrink-wrapped, but cards are).
Matschig Played various times, cards are still in decent condition, but the box was somehow rubbed off at one edge, so it looks less than perfect.
Quirrly Played once. Like new condition.

Megastar Light shelfwear, components still very good.
Der Herr der Wichtel AND its expansion Neues aus dem Wichtelwald New - boxes aren't shrinkwrapped, but the cards are.

Count Me In! Tin box, like new condition
Meschugge Some shelf wear at the bottom, components are like new.
Typo Not exactly the edition in the picture, but looks similar (English version). Decent condition, but played repeatedly and some shelf wear.
Alley Thieves Played once. Excellent condition. Not the edition pictured - this is the initial release edition (#12 out of 20). Comes in a ziplock bag.




Four point items

Flowerpower Box isn't in great condition: Much shelfwear, two dented corners. Components in good condition, though.
Sabotage In just acceptable condition. This is an old library copy; it has some labels sticking on the pack and the rules are just a photocopy. The actual game components are in decent condition.

August 7, 2005

It's been a long time coming, but I finally got my wife Candy to join me for a podcast. Considering how popular and everlasting the question "How can I get my wife/girlfriend to play games with me?" is on discussion boards, this podcast should be of interest to many. Candy plays games with me, sure, but she's not an avid hobbyist like myself. Or rather, she's got her own avid hobbies--boardgames just aren't one of them.

As I knew I would, this show was a lot of fun for me to record. Did I learn anything I didn't already know? Hmm, not much, I guess, but some. I still think Magic and CCGs are less geeky than roleplaying sessions, but perhaps this is splitting hairs.


Sure enough, she did manage to record her own new podcast the same day, too. It's a much shorter show (~5 minutes for the first episode) about Candy's favorite hobby--reading fiction. You (or your significant other) may care to check it out at AGoodRead.net.

5.
Flowerpower came to me via a very 'BGG' experience. I'm subscribed to the Flowerpower fora, because it's a grail game for Shenomad and me. A couple months ago, someone started a thread asking why the most recent sales of it had all come from Korea. A local 'geek replied, and in doing so mentioned that lots of shops here have a surplus of the whole Kosmos 2P line. I immediately wrote to him to ask:
Quote:
OMG: WHICH SHOPS?

He soon realized most of the places he was thinking of were long gone. That's when serendipity went into 4th gear. He is an academic up in Seoul (a 4-hour train ride north of me). My profile mentions my employer, and he saw it. He was already scheduled to attend a conference on my campus. He wrote to me, apologized for his error, and in exchange for a cup of coffee and a couple hours conversation, flat-out offered me his copy of Flowerpower! On Friday we met, had a delightful chat about everything from tattoos, to the best of Martin Wallace, to the Park administration. Oh, and he toyed with me before driving the stake through my mixed-metaphorical garden plot.

is a class act.

Shenomad and I have played 3 games since, and every one has been on par with our best games of head-to-head anything. Wonderful game.

Megastar Light shelfwear, components still very good.
Der Herr der Wichtel AND its expansion Neues aus dem Wichtelwald New - boxes aren't shrinkwrapped, but the cards are.
Obalistig Cards are in good condition, but the box isn't. It has bends and some traces of rubber band(?).


Three point items

Carcassonne cloth bag, unused
Gold Digger Components still look excellent, but the box has some damage at the top and shows some shelf wear.
Porn & Pong. By Damon Brown. Read once, looks like new.
Tricks Some shelf wear, some smaller stains on the outside. Components still look very good.



Count Me In! Tin box, like new condition
Meschugge Some shelf wear at the bottom, components are like new.
Halli Galli Wendy edition. In shrink.
Typo Not exactly the edition in the picture, but looks similar (English version). Decent condition, but played repeatedly and some shelf wear.



Four point items

Flowerpower Box isn't in great condition: Much shelfwear, two dented corners. Components in good condition, though.
Sabotage In just acceptable condition. This is an old library copy; it has some labels sticking on the pack and the rules are just a photocopy. The actual game components are in decent condition.
Soccer Sonic Played once, like new. I will add a printout of the English rules.
EinSATZ bitte! A little shelf wear, cards are in excellent condition


Unicum Played once. Small dent in one corner.
Alley Thieves Played once. Excellent condition. Not the edition pictured - this is the initial release edition (#12 out of 20). Comes in a ziplock bag.
Speed Cups² New in shrink.


Five point item

Bananagrams Played once. Like new (English edition).

New in January: Flowerpower, postcards, coaster, cloth bag, Alley Thieves, Unikum, Speed Cups². More might follow if I find the time, so stay tuned!

Edit 1: Added Alley Thieves, Unicum and Speed Cups².

CLOSED - SCRAIMERING NOW.

This is a great list! I've already just started using HabitRPG (https://habitrpg.com) to try and change my habits. It will be nice to have a support thread for games! I have too much stuff, games included, so I'm cutting off all spending until I go through all of my backlogs.

d10-1 Don't buy any new (for me) games for my collection. This includes expansions and promos.

d10-2 Only buy pimping stuff for games I've played at least 5 times.

Exceptions:

-Finish up my purchases with with

Sorry if I'm slow in reading mails. I'm currently working hard on some Alley Thieves

.

-Should a miracle happen and Dazzle gets reprinted/kickstarted (this will never happen).

-2 Kickstarter games.

-1 game at JimCon.

Bonus points if I don't buy/kickstart any games!

Update 2015-02-04: I finalized my purchases with Mandy, but added to games to the games I'm buying from her. Oops.

I am reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeealllly tempted by Villannex. Mandy doesn't have any left so this wouldn't fall under my exception. Worst still, there are copies in Geekmart. Grrrrrr.....

Update 2015-05-05: Managed not to buy Villannex. The husband bought Sheriff of Nottingham, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, and One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak. I might have nudged him on Sheriff, but ONUW was all him.

Very tempted for Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, but I'm trying to stay strong.

Backed Evolution: Flight, so that goes towards my kickstarter limit. I'm glad I forgot about Evolution when creating this list because I would have created an exception for it.

I did buy Hanabi Deluxe as a birthday present to myself, but I love, love, love Hanabi and the tiles make everything so much better! I'm staying strong on not buying Splendor!

Such a nice little, easy to print, game. Shouldn't cost much for a reprint.

This week in Games


Not many played this week, but quality over quantity and all that.

I recently had a very 'BGG' experience. I'm subscribed to the Flowerpower fora, because it's a grail game for Shenomad and me. A couple months ago, someone started a thread asking why the most recent sales of it had all come from Korea. A local BGG replied, and in doing so mentioned that lots of shops here have a surplus of the whole Kosmos 2P line. I immediately wrote to him to ask:
"OMG: WHICH SHOPS?"
He soon realized most of the places he was thinking of were long gone. That's when serendipity went into 4th gear. He is an academic up in Seoul (a 4-hour train ride north of me). My profile mentions my employer, and he saw it. He was already scheduled to attend a conference on my campus. He wrote to me, apologized for his error, and in exchange for a cup of coffee and a couple hours conversation, flat-out offered me his copy of Flowerpower! On Friday we met, had a delightful chat about everything from tattoos to the best of Martin Wallace to the Park administration. Oh, and he toyed with me before driving the stake through my mixed-metaphorical garden plot.

is a class act.

Subsequent games were all played today, and all with Kidnomad as my opponent. One each of:
- Crazy Eights: he wins (he always does)
- Skullduggery: our sandbox game, we pretty much use the components to do whatever we want. This time it was piratecide.
- Flowerpower: an 18-18 draw, I started out advising him on his placements. We played without the weeds rule. Nevertheless, at a critical juncture the kid drew a tile he didn't need and used it to very deliberately block me in the shared garden. I never saw it coming and applauded his "mean little move." Sitting nearby, Shenomad overheard and told him: "don't listen to Tommy's strategy advice. You're better than he is."

PBEM
I'll be back at work tomorrow to play my turns of 1989 (x2) and Cuba Libre. Given BGG.con, I doubt I'll get many replies, but as this is a hell week at work, I don't mind so much.

Acquisitions
Flowerpower as above, and I also purchased Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 4 – Nederland. I will only have to wait 6 days to see that one, as my BIL placed the order and we're soon gathering for a triple-birthday weekend--including Shenomad's: anyone got any gift ideas?

On the list of games not acquired was everything I bid on in the JVMFA. Disappointed not to have won some good, rare games, but this is one auction at which I don't mind being outbid.

Another I've been meaning to tackle for a while.

Shouldn't be too tough due to image files of components that were uploaded, though it's going to take some trial & error getting everything sized up right.
