July, named after just some guy, right? Well, yes! It's named after a Gaius! Actually, Gaius Julius Caesar. Not only did he managed to conquer Gaul (thus being the first European to justifiably yell "GGGGAAAAAUUULLLL!!!!") - he also achieved something that few others have: he has a salad named after him, to this very day. Some would claim that such an honor ranks below having a garment named after oneself, but I suppose no everybody can be granted the acclaim given to the 2nd Light Brigade of Kangaroo Cavalry. Or, as they were known, the wooly jumpers So all hail and praise to Big Juli Caesar for his month.

Rules

Be a Good Chap.

Similar to Wheaton's Law.



The Good Chap's code:
- We're all good chaps, so behave.
- We're friendly and honest, and always err on the side of being good to each other.
- If we make mistakes we take responsibility and apologize, and always try 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! This lottery is just another way of extending this fun by getting more excellent games to other fabulous people.
- If you feel wronged or suspicious, please contact Games 4 GeekGold before making a public accusation. Usually, one of the gAdminions already knows about it, and they can fill you in on all the details. Feel free to ask about anything!

How to bid on items
1. If you see an item you like, double-check that the item can be sent to your country and that you accept the shipping costs. If you still like the item, click on the icon next to that entry, and tip it some geekgold.
2. Sometimes you'll see an item that you really want which isn't shipped to your location, or which doesn't have free shipping. Bear in mind that postage isn't cheap, and don't demand that the lister pay for it.
3. The gAdminions will suggest a trade between two users if they've both bid more than half of the tips on the other's posted item. Refunds will be given to the rest of the users who had placed tips on those two items. You may report such cases to a gAdminion when the draw date grows near.

Rules for listing and drawing items
If you wish to list an item please read the rules and guidelines in Games for Geekgold Rules before posting a new item. The rules are there to protect both the lister and the bidders, so please read them carefully.

8 Mini Ancient Ones

These are handmade by me from polymer clay & are perfectly sized to track the awakening on the Elder Sign card. Also included 14 elder sign coins to replace the cardboard ones. Forgot to say that parts of them glow-in-the-dark.

The second picture shows them in comparison to my older Arkham Horror pawns & I put 1 generic pawn in just to help in comparing size. The larger Arkham pawns are not included in the lottery.

Closed no more tipping
Hopefully I can do the drawing properly with the tool as I've never used it before.

1 = 1 entry
5 = 6 entries


Draw July 26 (My daughters birthday, she'll be turning 30)

Closed for Drawing

This lottery is for the dice only*.

This is for a full set of twenty-four** custom laser engraved dice for BSG Express that are used to play the game. You'll need to print out the chits, player screens, and board (or come up with some work around for each item) to play the game.

*I do have an extra set of cards that I printed out. I can throw in if you want. However, I'm not fully satisfied with the way they came out. I think they handle poorly and the loyalty cards aren't thick enough to block all light. As a result, they should be sleeved. Please think of the auction as being for the dice, and the cards being a bonus.

**Speaking of bonuses, I can include an extra red and blue skill die, so you'll actually get 11 of each even though only ten are needed but I'll include spares just in case. The actual total is 26 dice.

The artwork is my own design. Note that these are custom engraved by me. There are ten blue and ten red skill dice. These dice are unpainted. In addition, there are four crisis dice, which if you want, I can paint for you.

My friend seem to like them, but since I'm very picky, I'll point out that they are far from perfect. The most obvious flaws with the dice are that:
d10-1They don't have a great finish, especially the black dice. Look closely at the black die in the lower left. It isn't a nice uniform black. There is a strange swirl on the surface.
d10-2The engraving may be slightly off center. This is more common on the blue dice. Notice how the -2 is slightly too far to the right.
d10-3The engraving leaves a mild pattern in one direction (either horizontal or vertical) for the large numbers. Note how there are vertical lines inside the -2 on the blue die.
d10-4I'm not very good at painting. If you look at the Dradis symbol on the black die, you should notice that I got some paint in the white areas. In addition, because of the way the paint pools there may be white dots in the centers of the red circles because the way the paint pulls up the side. Note that I retouched this image to hide this defect. When I get some free time I'll try adding some more paint to see if I can fix this.

These are not the actual dice that are going to be sent. I'm going to engrave another set. They'll look similar to these. If they don't, I'll send the set pictured.

Note that I have no dot to indicate whether the set if for 3-5 players or for 4 players. Instead I shifted the single jump prep icon from the lower right to the bottom center on the side with Dradis icon on 4 player dice. I think the dice look better without it and once you know what to look for, it's pretty easy to tell the two apart.

Entries:
1 -> 1 entry
5 -> 6 entries

Shipping:
Estimated shipping costs are:
$6 - USPS Priority Mail for within the US
$8 - First Class Mail for shipping to Canada
$15 - First Class Mail International (~10 oz)
$25 - Priority Mail International

Please check to see if USPS will deliver to your country and verify the postage costs before bidding (tipping).

Drawing closes July 31 around 9 EDT.

4. Board Game: Battle Line [Average Rating:7.42 Overall Rank:184]

This is a Simpson's style one-of-a-kind Battle Line set. OK, there are 2 in existence as the first was on last month's list.

Cards professionally printed from Artscow. Figures semi-professionally pilfered from a "3-D" chess set. (Get it, it's not 2-D... it took me a while).

After putting the item up last month, I had enough figures for a 2nd set and the entry last month did well. So the cards are on their way from China (shipped last week) and this is the 2nd and last copy of this unique version. If you win, you will need to download the rules from the game's page.


(The mix of pawn colors differ slightly from the picture above.)

Contents:
Troop Deck (60 cards)
Tactic Deck (10 cards)
3D Simpson's figures (9) that represent flags

Condition: Cards sealed, pawns used

5 = 6 entries
25 = 40 entries
100 = 200 entries

Draw: July 31st
Shipping: Free world wide

Good Luck!!

Edit 6/23: Adding stretch goal: box / carrying case.

Being a PnP game it naturally does not have a box of its own. If this entry exceeds 1100 I will turn this themed dominoes tin into a storage box for the game:



6/30 Edit: First, the cards have arrived from Artscow. Due to recent discussions regarding paint curing issues and resultant messed up card decks I decided to open the decks to confirm they look ok so there would be time to correct it before the draw. It turns out they are fine. Incidentally, they were not shrik wrapped like they ususall are when I get them. Artscow may have similarly did a QA check before shipping. To to clarify, tuck boxes are not wrapped and the content were checked for quality. Never Played. All is good.

Thanks to all for your thumbs, bids, and comments.

This is Reiner Knizia's highly-rated strategy game, Battle Line, Wargames Club Hong Kong version: 古战阵 Battle Line (简体版) (Simplified Chinese First Edition).

Not that the language matters, since game play is language independent!

What does matter: Same set collection and hand management, but with Chinese warriors squaring off:


With each battle winner claiming victory with these beautiful banners:


I will include color copies of rules and Tactics cheat sheets in English.

Condition: New in Shrink.

Shipping: International shipping is on me! meeple

Draw date: Sometime soon after July 30, empowered by The Scraimer Tool.


1= 1 entry
5bag = 6 entries
20bag = 30 entries


Bonus!
If bids reach 700500, I will take a page from Merc007 and Scoutmom's excellent playbook and include some mystery treats, both exotic and yummy varieties. Mystery treats because on July 30 I will be in Newfoundland, Canada, and August 2 I will be in Chicago, USA, and mid-August I will be back in Hong Kong. I'll ship it from the locale that is least expensive for me, but with a globalized and groovy mix of treats for you.

for uploading these images, so I didn't have to break the seal on this game.

Edit: Returned bonus level to normal 500. I didn't want to risk missing the fun of putting treats together. It makes me feel like a kid in a candy store, or something like that.

I love this game - it's one of my and my wife's favorites! In honor of this expansion, which just came out, I want to treat a copy to someone else who loves this game! And if you don't love Spartacus yet, go out and take advantage of that Amazon deal that's been circulating on the Hot Deals thread so you can enjoy this expansion too!



Shipping is free worldwide!

Drawing will be held 7/31 with Scraimer's tool:
1 = 1 entry
5 = 6 entries

laughGood luck!

If this listing reaches 500 gg, I will throw in the Spartacus: Hadrianus Promo Card!

Includes both the newest edition of KOLEJKA and its expansion OGONEK

Brand new copies (in shrink) of the awesome and reknown (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/26/line-polish-board-g...) Kolejka game, the polish game of the year 2012 and its expansion, Kolejka: Ogonek. It's the newest, multilingual edition (English, German, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Spanish and French) and the newest, fourth printing (from July 2013). The game is quite hard to get outside of Poland.

Shipping is from United States, zip 85721 (AZ) I'm willing to ship worldwide, but the winner pays for the shipping, unless we reach some threshold (read on one below).

Entries:
1 geekgold - 1 entry
5 geekgold - 6 entries
50 geekgold - 80 entries

At 800 geekgold I'm gonna offer free US shipping or will contribute first $15 to international shipping
At 1600 geekgold I'm gonna offer free US/Canada shipping or will contribute first $35 to international shipping

Drawing: July 31st

More on shipping: the weight of the games (with the external box) is around 5lbs, so you can use the usps.com website to calculate the shipping costs.

100d6 - 100 extremely tiny six-sided dice


Check out all the cool PnP games made by scraimer using these dice (chunky fighters, weilong, roboderby express)...


... and this cool pic taken by merc007 comparing these dice to normal and giant sized dice.


Please note:
All dice are approximately 5mm or .2 inches per side. Big time no foolin' choking hazard, not for little ones under 3 years old. Dice may have slight variations in sizes or paint quality. Perfect for your 100d6 games, you masochist you. Images above show actual dice, but Tic Tacs, Agricola, Pandemic, giant dice, normal dice, and Mandy's Danboard-chan dude are not included, and neither are scraimer's neat PnP versions, which he should probably post as G4GG items, because I know I would at least tip them.

Entries:
1 -> 1 entry
5 -> 6 entries

Bonus Levels:

200 - an additional new winner is drawn from thumbs*
300 - second different winner is drawn from tips+
400 - third different winner is drawn from tips+
600 - fourth different winner is drawn from tips+

Please note that bonuses have changed slightly from previously offerings.

+ different winner means a winner who has not yet won these dice this month
* new winner means a winner who has never previously won or received these dice.

The thumb drawing will be performed last after the tipped drawings have been performed, but only if the 200gg bonus level is reached.

Free shipping worldwide. To be drawn as many times as necessary on Wednesday July 31st at 8PM EST.

edit: corrected thumb drawing text to reflect changes in bonus levels (it was moved from 300 to 200)

If you win this lottery, I will order you a boardgame. It will be a game (or expansion) of MY choice, but it'll be from your wishlist.

I'll discuss what game I'm planning on purchasing with the winner, and on agreement I will have it sent directly by a FOLGS - or a similar site such as Amazon - hopefully within the winner's country.

This is about offering games that people want - and I get to have a great deal of fun at the same time. It also allows me to save on postage, gets something that everyone will enjoy, and lets me keep doing these draws! Keep spreading the love!

This month, I'm hoping to spread twice the amount of love!

These are my promises up front to ensure clarity:

d10-1If I cannot find an appropriate game to send from the winner's wishlist, I will ask for other options until we could come to an agreement. I will try everything in my power to find a game from the winner's wishlist first.
d10-2If the winner doesn't have a wishlist then I order a game of my choice based on what they have detailed on their collection instead. A winner can also ask for this option anyway if they want a surprise!
d10-3The game will have a minimum spend before postage of 20USD - unless the winner requests we go below this limit. *This is an increase over previous months, as I've realised the value was far too low to be realistic*
d10-4The game will have a maximum spend before postage of 40USD - but I may choose to go above this limit if I believe it is warranted.
*This has happened both months so far!*
d10-5If it was agreed that the source of the game will be from outside the winner's country, for whatever reason, the winner will be liable for any customs charges applicable.
d10-6I will pay for basic shipping, worldwide. (If there is an option for tracking or faster delivery, the winner can request this but they will need to pay the difference.)
d10-7I will order the item within two weeks of the drawing.


This listing will run until Sun 28th July.

Tiers are as follows:

1 = 1 entry
10 = 12 entries
50 = 80 entries
100 = 175 entries


Stretch goal (basing these on previous experience and interest):

At 4000
A second, unique winner will be pulled. All terms above to apply to each winner, ie:
Minimum spend before postage per winner will be 20USD
Maximum spend before postage per winner will be 40USD

If there are any questions I'll happily answer them here.

So make sure your collections and wishlists are up to date, and good luck!

I know that there are plenty of people who have just purchased the core set to play, and aren't interested in the expansions. So here is your chance to up the replayability of your core set by adding in a new identity for all 7 factions in the game.

This drawing is for my custom re-theme of Love Letter. Note: does not come with the retail version of the game. I wanted to have some fun so I made a Batman: Arkham City Riddler's Letters re-theme. I had one more copy of this lying around so I figured I'd do another give away. I'm not releasing the printer files, so this is the only way to get a copy. Here are a couple of photos:




There is no custom case, but the cards will come in a clear, hard plastic card case. Also included (as cards) are the instructions, player aids and a FAQ. This was professionally printed by a print on demand company.

Free Shipping to the US
, I'll cover the first $10 of shipping worldwide (this is light enough to fit in a padded mailer, so that could also cover a good portion of the world).


1= 1 Entry
10=15 Entries
25= 40 Entries
50= 100 Entries


Draw Date: July 30 using Scraimer's Tool.

The raffle is closed and a winner has been picked. Thanks to everyone who entered!

Let me know if you have any questions.

This is for one copy of New in Shrink Munchkin Zombies!


Free shipping in the USA.

I will front the first 12.00 bucks to international ship + .02 for every you tip. Anything over that the winner is responsible for.


Game dimensions and weight. This will give you some idea on shipping I suppose. Remember there will be a shipping box and packing material added to this.


9 x 6 x 1.5 inches ; 15.2 ounces




Will use Scraimers tool to draw ( after I figure out how to use it!) Will draw on July 31st!

This is for a tiny little teenie-weenie gaming surprise package. I can promise that it will contain dice and a small game. It will also contain some other strange gaming stuff. Maybe it will contain an expansion or a print-n-play game? My lips are sealed.

My only promise is I will have fun putting it together. I hope you will have fun opening it. I will consult your profile to try to match the items to your interests.

There will be no bonus entries because I am encouraging people to just drop a couple of on this - let's keep this all very tiny and fun. No big investments and no big promises. Just a little surprise. cool

Free shipping worldwide. It will come in a padded envelope.

Closes in the afternoon on July 31, 2013.

Here is a previous package I sent to:

We did a lot of communication back and forth so that I could assemble the best possible package.

(I originally posted this in Cate's geeklist, but I thought it should be posted here to give people on the fence about bidding that little push they need. You WANT one of these packages. Believe me. Look at that low total - you've got a good chance now to get your % chance up! DO IT!)

Last month, my mb seemed to be forsaking me, as auction after auction ended in bitter disappointment and howls of anguish. And then, late in the evening following a bittersweet sunset (OK, I'm making up things, I have no idea when it happened), I receive an email from Cate saying I was the lucky winner of her May 2013 care package! Thank the mb! He has not abandoned me!

Well, if you read Cate's entry, she promises a tiny itsy bitsy package brimming with goodies. When the not so tiny and heavy package arrived on my doorstop late last week I thought my wife must have ordered another crate of makeup or some shoes. But no - it was the package from Cate!



I immediately dropped the package on top of Tzolk'in - a game which I lost yet again at the hands of my wife,my gaming nemesis. See how big this "Tiny" package from Cate is??



I immediately tear into the box sweeping aside crystal skulls and no doubt angering the gods even more than I did in the game.



First out of the box:
1) Awesome indented dice - perfect for some print and play fun!
2) Various pawns, chips, and dice along with a large crown royal bag. My crown royal bag holding all my carcassonne tiles is a little overly full at the moment, this will help share the duties, no doubt. The dice and pawns were immediately seized by my 4 year old and put into her pirate treasure chest and buried somewhere in the back yard...I'll need to go dig that up soon. They made her day though
3) A huge stack of Firefly trading cards - one of my favorite TV shows, it'll be fun to look through these and read all the tidbits! Although mostly that will probably make me very sad there won't be any more adventures with the crew any more...man, I still get upset by that after all these years...
4) Another tiny crown royal bag (so cute!), a little Japanese-style wind up car (super cute!), and a nice leather-wrapped dice cup. I like the rounded bottom on this one!



But there was even more!
1) Gaming tokens, fuzzy balls, and Famous Flagships: The World's Smallest Yacht Racing Game! I'm a big fan of tiny games that can go anywhere, looking forward to trying this one out this weekend at my Grandma's birthday party! The tokens are pretty sweet - what to upgrade??? And the fuzzy balls have been added to the kid's craft box. I foresee Rudolph's being made around Christmas with reckless abandon!
2) A cute little notepad, Apple stickers, a fly swatter gun, and a cool Hawaii postcard from Cate. The fly swatter gun is a hit - my wife hates flies in the house (well, is anyone really a fan?) and has already had fun trying to shoot them with this sucker. The notepad was once again commandeered by my daughter, and now it's filled with numerous squiggles and lines - a map to her hidden treasure, no doubt. Cate asked if I was a PC guy in her info collecting email, so I'm guessing the apple stickers are a subtle dig at my preferred computing platform. Well played, Cate. Well played.
3) Gaming bags, cancer sucks wristband, book light. I was literally on my way to the run errands, one of which was to Joann Fabrics to buy some more plastic bags when this box came. Thanks for saving me some gas, Cate.
4) Cate promised a small game in my package, and she didn't disappoint! Weilong looks pretty cool - did I already mention I love small games?? that along with the Famous Flagships game would have been awesome enough - more than I expected already in this package from Cate's assertion that this would be a small package. But no! Look at that Mr. Jack Pocket ! Another wonderful small game that will be perfect for me and my wife! Thanks so much for everything, Cate!!!



But wait, what the heck. Glory to Rome ?! Black box edition?? With kickstarter promos?! what the heck. What happened to a humble package, Cate?? I mean, this thing is gorgeous! I know not everyone is, but I'm a huge fan of the redesign of this game. I love the art design. I was lukewarm on the original but also very put off by the garish 1980s gradients and cartoony drawings in such a meaty game. Looking forward to giving this one another go - I'm excited to see what my gaming nemesis thinks about it!


So that's my package!

I know Cate probably did more in this package than she should have and I couldn't be more grateful. If the box had half of the things that it did it would have easily been worth twice the 100 I dropped in her auction. But for what I received - the care and though that went into the package alone...I'm not exaggerating when I say that this has been my favorite G4GG win. And I won a $100 gift cert to CSI before, so that's no small statement.

A message to everyone: you NEED to put into Cate's drawings. As much as you can. You might not get this much, but looking at all the previous packages, you'll still get an amazing experience.

Thanks again, Cate! You're a good chap!

I am sometimes. cool At other times... the cut of my jib is NOT beyond reproach. shake
