AUCTION CLOSED

For a while I've been sitting on replacement parts for Viticulture that comprise complete games (we sold out of the full game months ago), but they don't have boxes. I happened to mention the lack of boxes to my uncle, a carpenter, and he suggested that he make custom wooden boxes for the games. He has now completed 13 of these boxes, some of which are pictured here.

At first we were thinking we would just sell these limited editions of Viticulture (we’re adding in the updated rules and grande meeples), but then it occurred to us that a special item like this would be a great way to promote our favorite reviewers, bloggers, podcasters, etc, and at the same time help out some charities.

So here’s what we’re doing: This Geeklist is an auction for all 13 limited edition copies of Viticulture, attributing each one to a favorite reviewer/blogger of ours. The auctions will start on November 30 and end on Saturday, December 7 at 5:00pm CST. Payments can be submitted to us via PayPal (stonemaiergames@gmail.com) after the auctions close. Each auction is separate from the others--there will only be one winner per auction even if the second-place bid on that auction eclipses the top bids on other auctions.

Bids must increase in increments of at least $1. Bidding starts at $1.

Half of the winning bidder's bid up to $268 (see comment at the very bottom of the page) for each game will go to a charity selected by the blog associated with that game. Any amount given over $268 per game will go to charity in addition to the first half. And the blog whose game garners the highest winning bid will get the entire amount for their charity of choice. Also, the blog whose game garners the greatest number of thumbs will receive an advance review copy of our next game--so even if you don't bid, this is a way to get an early look at Tuscany by your favorite reviewer!

Each winning bidder will receive:

--One autographed complete set of the retail first edition of Viticulture
--One custom-crafted, limited edition wooden box
--A set of second-edition rules (the first ever to be printed)
--6 "grande" meeples (not the official grande meeples, but they will serve as great-looking stand-ins from Meeple Source until Tuscany is released)
--Free shipping anywhere in the world, delivered before Christmas (pending timely payment)

To make things even more interesting, each of the 13 games will include one of the following bonus items. Starting with the highest winning bidder, each winner will get to choose one of these items to be included in with their limited edition copy:

--The Aboriculture expansion (this is the only remaining replacement copy of Arboriculture we have)
--One prototype of one of the first expansions in the Tuscany expansion pack (you will be the first non-founder of Stonemaier Games to see this expansion)
--One of five custom-etched, stainless steel Viticulture corkscrews
--One of two sets of custom-etched, stemless Viticulture wineglasses (each set is a pair of glasses)
--One of two Stonemaier Games t-shirts
--One set of premium Fantasy Flight sleeves for all cards in the game
--Both uncut card sheets from Viticulture
--NEW: One copy of Euphoria Supreme (Kickstarter version)
--NEW: One copy of Euphoria Deluxe (Kickstarter version)

Thanks for supporting these amazing charities, these talented bloggers, and Stonemaier Games!
