BRIGHT SUNSHINY GAMES The official Games for Geekgold January 2013.
We survived the Armageddon : it’s a new year
So moving on to 2013! And it’s the dawn of the new tools!!! * Firstly the new Scraimer tool. * There may be a return of Sol’s tool * But wait there’s more: We may have a new improved version of Jeromier’s tool. All traceable.
Rules 1 Let’s make 2013 the year of the good chap– If we put an item up we draw it, if we draw it we send it to the winners. The good chap' code: - We're all good chaps, so behave - We're friendly, honest and err on the side of being good to each other - If we make mistakes we own up, apologise and make good as far as possible - We treat others as we'd want to be treated - We're here to play boardgames and have spiffing fun and this lottery is just another way of extending this fun by getting more excellent games to fabulous people
Entering Anyone with a BGG account can participate but new users can’t list items. Note: NEW USERS CAN BID ON ITEMS!!! If you see an item on this geeklist you're interested in owning, tip that entry and you are entered. Note the postage/shipping details.
Please don’t hassle people who list items if they aren’t including free postage or won’t post it to where you are. You can query items but don’t hassle people – be a good chap.
Listing items + Post it as an item on this list (but not if you’re a new user- new users need to clear any items they list with the adminion team -see below). + Include a full description of the thing or edition that you have and its condition. + Specify if you will be limited in shipping options. If you ship internationally, if the shipping is on you, or if you’re willing to contribute to shipping. + Scaimer’s tool allows two bonuses (eg: 5gg=6 entries 25gg=32 entries) don’t include more than two. + Specify when your item will close for entries (this must be by 31 January). You can post Board Games, Video Games, RPGs, and related items. You cannot make a lottery for Geekgold or something completely unrelated the main entry, although these types of item can be added as bonus or as secondary winners. You can put gift cards as long as it is for a games related store (i.e. no gift card to a convenience or department store allowed, but one for steam, funagain, drivethru rpg, etc can be raffled). A Paypal payment in lieu of an online store permitted if the winner cannot easily obtain the game for an online store. + Always link the entry to the correct item on the database. So if you are auctioning the Video Game version of Puerto Rico Puerto Rico and not to Puerto Rico.
+ Miscellaneous game entries, like FIMO miniatures, pimp items, etc should be added using Miscellaneous Game Accessory, Miscellaneous Miniatures Game Accessory or Miscellaneous Card Game Accessory as appropriate. + Don't update more than once a day! Preferably not more than once a week. + If you are in some way connected with the item in question, either as a publisher or as a designer, declare it! + Please try not to add substantial new items to a lottery item after a few days of listing without checking with me first. Some people invest much or all of their limited if they perceive they have a reasonable chance of winning. Dilution, while good for you, may be unfair for bidders.
Drawing If you put up an item you will make the drawing EITHER Using Scraimer’s tool - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6240410/GamesForGeekGoldDrawingsHel... (you may need to use a browser other than Internet Explorer as I can make it work on 3 other browsers but not this one) This tool will draw the item and post the result to the item. OR Via bgg.com using dice rolls in the entry you use to list the item. You must do this. ! Please, for everyone's sake (particularly yours) if you use this method keep the entering for items as simple as possible!!! If you have two prizes you’ll need to do the draw several times removing earlier winners if they are rolled again. You will need to specify if the same person can’t win more than once. ! By the last day of the month OR the day you nominated you are expected to draw the item. They must be drawn within 5 days of the end of the month or it is expected that you will return all geekgold.
How to draw.... EITHER A) Scraimer’s tool - follow this link https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6240410/GamesForGeekGoldDrawingsHel... Load it to your tool bar. You’re ready. Check the bonuses match in item it defaults to 5 = 6 entries and 25=30. You can DEL these or change them. It’s worth doing a quick check the numbers match the entry. Amend the item to say it’s closed. Click draw. That’s it. OR B) Using die rolls see here for a better step-by-step summary [geeklist=149652][/geeklist] i) Go to the item on the G4GGg thread and post that it is closed for drawing. Add the number of geekgold that have been bid at the time you close it. (see here http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/148593/item/2366038#item23...) ii) Find the ID number of your item from your browser URL (click the number of the item next to the title where it is on the geeklist (eg the item above is 2366038). iii). Click on Jeromier's Awesome Tool and open it in another tab or window iv) Enter the ID number of your item into Jeromier's Awesome Tool. v) Select the Display the final list option. DO NOT choose the Randomize the list option and DO NOT check the Determine winner box. vi). Select Find Winner. This will give you a list of bidders in alphabetical order (don't randomise it)! vii). If you can right click on the list and copy it, then paste it to a googledoc or word doc and save it- IF you know how import it to BGG in your gallery please do this, (this is an added option so that later entries after it has closed are easier to rule out). viii). Save the list and go to the bottom bar of the listed item. Click on Add a Roll and beside Roll type in dxxx (with xxx being the number of entries as recorded in Jeromier's Awesome Tool . Click Add Roll and the winning number will appear underneath your item. ix) Now you just have to find who that was. Check your winning number against the list of bidders you got from Jeromier's Awesome Tool to find the winner. J. Display the winner's name as a post below your entry. Use the drop down menu option with Insert Geek Link in it. Use the list to find User. Then insert the avatar of the winner by using the code [username = nameofwinner] (without the spaces in the middle). x) Contact that person and arrange shipment of the game. xi) Send them the game. NOTE: Each die roll gets a unique sequential number. If you can't draw the entry I will do it for you - ask and give us a few days’ notice. Do not delete the item!
Please note: If a drawing error is noticed for whatever reason, an adminion, (Richard or I) will declare the draw with the error null and void, and the item must be redrawn.

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Custom playmat for Android: Netrunner
As presented in the Netrunner forums, the image was put together by Luca Carnevale, and the mat was printed by Inked Playmats.
I got an extra one as a present for a friend, but he's informed me that with the recent release of the new Star Wars LCG, he's probably going to be dropping Netrunner, so I thought I'd might as well throw it on here to make some other player happy.
Livin's mostly wasting time, and I waste my share of mine
I am a breathing time machine
This is for two packs of Mayday Premium Card Sleeves. Size 59x92 mm (Euro Card Size). Works for games such as Agricola, Dominion, Summoner Wars, etc. These are new and unopened. 50 sleeves per pack. Free shipping worldwide in a padded envelope. I will draw on January 31st using Jeromier's Awesome Tool.
1=1 entry 5=6 entries
P.S. This is my first time putting something up in G4GG, so please let me know if I've missed anything.

No international shipping A $50 PayPal payment is a option for international bidders if they wish to bid. That means international winners get a $50 PayPal payment to do what they wish with it. No game. Drawing at the end of the month (31st). By the new tool.
The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion
