Last Summer, I was as keen as the keenest of English mustards to help get a fine gaming cause off the ground: the Ugandan 'Gamechangers' convention: (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/67657/whats-good-geek...)
Being a small but enthusiastic part of the overall campaign (Matt Leacock joined in most mightily as well) was incredibly rewarding; the funds were (generously) raised and the children have been well-stocked with gaming opportunities ever since. Indeed, shortly afterwards, Ben Maddox (of Perfect Information and 5Games4Doomsday fame) organized the collection and dispatch of loads of donated second-hand board games to the gamechangers too - so their Ludic cups ran-eth over!
The World spins ever onward, of course, and the success of their first proper convention has whetted their appetites for more; thus:
One thousand pounds is the target but - for Heaven's sake - we can do a lot better than THAT, can't we, my dears?
To this end, I am offering the following to you splendid Geekfolk:
For every pledger who pledges at least £15 there will be one of these (a "Snowdonia Train") - postcardified - sent to your door at no further cost...
(you won't find out exactly what it does until you get a copy)
At the end of the campaign I will draw one person, at random, from all of the peeps who have pledged any amount (however large or small) and send them a FREE copy of Alubari: A Nice Cup of Tea when it becomes available later in the year! You can't say fairer than that, can you?!
Now, get a-pledgin'!
(and don't forget to please tell your friends!)
