I've had a rather tough year health-wise, and when things get rough, I start thinking about life. One of the things I've thought about is generosity, what it means to be a generous person, and what it means to be a generous board gamer.

I created this list to recognize those who were generous to me here on BoardGameGeek. These acts of generosity, no matter how small, have made my life in board gaming even better. If I missed you, it was not on purpose. I think I remembered everyone.

If you've experienced generosity here on the Geek, tell us about it. I want this GeekList to recognize the many, many examples of generosity on BGG.

Let's celebrate and say thank you to those who've been generous!

Wesley gave me Construction Zone for my birthday.

We tried to work out a trade for Construction Zone earlier in the year, but it just didn't happen. It was no problem, trades don't always work out. A few months later, he sent me a geekmail asking if I had picked up a copy of the game yet. I told him I hadn't, but I had a birthday coming up and I put it on my wishlist. He told me if no one got it for me for my birthday, he would. And he did! Thank you Wesley for your awesome act of generosity!

Jason gave me the Encounter at Amon Din adventure pack, for no good reason.

I happened to come across a thread that said Jason was giving this away, and all I needed to do was comment on a Facebook post. I did, and Jason sent me the adventure pack. He wouldn't even let me pay for shipping. Thanks Jason for being so generous with your extra stuff!

Jason gave me the Summoner Wars: Khexhu promo card, just because.

I was the recipient of Bohnanza from Jason in a Math Trade. I saw that he had this promo card on his trade list so I asked if there was anything I could trade him to add Khexhu to the trade. He said nope, and sent it right along with Bohnanza, just because. Thanks for being a generous geek, Jason!

Greg overpaid just because he wanted to.

Greg was looking for some extra things for Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. He needed a new box, rulebook, and some cards. I said I could send them because I had them left over from my extra core sets. He asked how much, so I said $5. He paid me $10. When I tried to give the extra money back, he said no, he wanted to pay extra. Thanks Greg for being so generous with your hard earned gaming dollars!

I was the winner of Lisa's mystery box in the What's in the Box? Chain of Generosity. She sent me a box full of games and other fun stuff. I'm especially excited about Battleball. I have it set aside so I can play it with my son when he gets old enough. Thanks Lisa for being so generous when creating my mystery box.

Another super-generous Secret Santa.

My 2011 Dice Tower Secret Santa chose to remain anonymous. Which is perfectly fine, and that doesn't keep me from recognizing his or her generosity. Not only did he or she send me the Summoner Wars Master Set, but also Innovation, RoboRally, and Flickwerk. Thanks Santa for going above and beyond the call of Christmas duty!

My car got stolen 10 days ago with many hard-to-get games in the trunk. I made a sob-story-geeklist listing the games. Shawna (who did not know me) saw it and offered to send me one of them (she had an extra copy of the mimic version of Dungeon Roll) and it came just a few days later. Amazing!

John decided to send me some games, just because!

When I got up this morning, there was a geek mail waiting for me. It was from John saying he had an extra copy of Extreme Danger and Flash Point: Fire Rescue – Dangerous Waters. Indie Boards and Cards had sent him extra copies and asked that instead of returning them, he find a good home for the games. He wouldn't even let me pay for the shipping. Holy moly! Thank you John for being so generous!

Last month I was posting on the Solitaire Games on Your Table - November 2013 about how I hoped to buy Labyrinth soon. Reading some posts last month it came out of a long held spot toward the bottom of my wishlist to shoot to the top for some cosmic reason. After making a few comments, all of a sudden and within an hour of each other, two participants on the Solitaire Games on Your Table Geeklists geekmailed me and offered me their copies for free.

I was floored by the generosity, timing, and the fact that there were two people with the exact same kind thought. I accepted the first offer and found the game in my mail box two or three days later; not only was the gift generous, but so was the choice of delivery method.

I made it a point to learn and play it immediately. I played five games within a couple weeks and have really enjoyed it; it's a keeper!

Both kind solitaire gamers shall remain anonymous but have me heartfelt and enduring thanks!

stepped up and said she'd send me her copy if I didn't win. I was so happy to see the game arrive, with its tartan decor, not too long after that!

My dad loved the name and box art of the game, but found the suits a bit hard to differentiate to enjoy playing it regularly. Still, an awesome gesture by the ever-generous Cate!

Thanks again, Cate

Andrew contacted me about a possible trade. 50gg for 2 copies of Lemonade Stand with Kickstarter extras. Sounded like a good deal to me, so I accepted. When I got the games in the mail, the box they arrived in was a lot bigger than necessary for 2 small card games. That's because he also included Shear Panic and an in-shrink copy of RoboRally which were both on my wishlist. He also included card sleeves!

Can't say thank you enough for making that particularly bad time in my life so much better, Andrew!

for being willing to make a trade with someone who had no trade rating! I received a great copy of this game for a really, really, really ragged, partially incomplete copy of Dune that I had picked up at a garage sale for a buck! Of course, it helped that we met face to face for the trade. It turned into a friendship and we have both gamed at each other's homes. In fact we need to do that again soon!

Again, a few years back, I had mentioned I had thrifted an Valkrie Master set that was incomplete and Mike not only provided a bunch of stuff towards making it complete he also provided the rules, figures, and cards for the Marvel set! If I remember correctly he didn't even let me pay for shipping. This also turned into a friendship and he has traveled several time to join up with me for gaming (including with Mark). And I have met him at a hotel somewhat out his way before as well for gaming. Not to mention he has been my willing mule/proxy for several transactions involving his side of the state. THANKS MIKE!

Oh, to increase the perspective of his generosity on the Heroscape ... he was on a long term strike at the time!

(I intend to include more entries but its not to increase chances for the gg ... I should only be included once.)

for inviting me to join his game group - Sages. I had posted on some forums he was involved in and he sent the invitation. It was a while before I took him up on the offer but now I try to make it down the first Saturday of every month for SAGEFEST. Its an all day session of games that last well into the night. Sometimes even my son and his wife come. One SAGEFEST I was running a game of Kingmaker (imagine that) when I got the call that my daughter was in labor and birth was imminent and I had to leave. If I remember correctly several people fulfilled my place at the table and the faction eventually won!

I have not actually joined SAGES because I can't make it down there often enough for the mid week or even Friday gaming but I try to pitch in when I can when there are work projects in the building.

Thanks, Rick!

Edit: Forgot to explain why I chose Biblios ... it was the first game I played at Sages with Rick and his wife (not listing her name because she has an unusual spelling and doesn't like it when its spelled wrong),

Ryan Moses and his wife Amanda (they have deleted their account it used to be something like Magusnprincess)

Ryan had received an advance copy to review and I played it with them at their home. They saw that i liked it and gave it to me when he was done reviewing it. I recently loaned the copy to the Sages library but when I went to thank them on BGG I discovered they had deleted their account. I hope they return to BGG or at least call me to set up some more gaming!

Thanks Ryan and Amanda!

who took in for a week or so our two cats and a dag after our house fire about a year ago until we got into temporary housing where we could have one of the cats and the dog back with us. She has also been willing to meet up for transactions and has opened her home for gaming. (We need to do this again.)

I chose Momma Mia because it was one of the games we played at her place and it was great fun!

Thanks, cool username!

for the times he has operated as a mule/proxy for me and one of those meet ups even let me play his design of Pirate Dice: voyage on the Rolling Sea before it was produced. I have enjoyed some gaming with Clint at UCon as well with Eric.

Thanks, Clint!

Back in August I posted an item requesting Cafe International to the "Thrifting for You" geeklist.

http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/151384/item/2797514#item27...

I got a response from (and responded back to) Ralf in the Netherlands.

I have seen several copies of this lately. Would you mind one with Dutch rules? The game doesn't contain any text as far as I know


Thanks for the interest, Ralf! I wouldn't mind a copy with Dutch rules, but I lost my job in November and can't currently afford to reimburse shipping.

So if anyone else wants a copy of this, please post here and I will change my request to let them in, but since its so late in the year, Maybe they can just post this game on next years "thrifting for you" list.

Thanks anyway!

Jerry


He persisted, saying that he would check back at his thrift store, and if they still had it would ship it to me without shipping reimbursement.

Then we exchanged the following geekmails:

Ralf, I can't thank you enough for your generosity. Really, I can't.

To be honest I have no idea how much you will pay to have to ship a copy of Cafe International from the Netherlands. But I did some checking this morning and there is a seller that is offering 3 copies of Cafe International on amazon.com for $29.99 USD with free shipping on orders over $35.00.

So to spend more than that to ship a copy to me from the Netherlands would feel like a waste of your money to me. So please please please don't spend more than that.

Thank you again, and may God bless you.

Jerry

Hi Jerry!

Costs for shipping would be around 24 dollars for me. We could do three things:
1. I'll buy the game from the thrift store in the hopes that it's complete and after checking it send it to you. Most money would be lost to shipping, so that's kind of a waste...
2. I'll buy you the Amazon one which most certainly is in good condition and you find yourself something fancy on amazon as a bonus to make the total order 35$ or more for free shipping.
3. I'll buy you anything else from Amazon for 35$ish dollars if you would like a different game/item more than this one.

Basically I don't give you the option to not receive anything

Let me know whatever you like!

May God bless you. I'll pray for you for a new job
Cheers!

Ralf

Hello again, Ralf,

After reading your geekmail to me and crying for about 5 minutes due to your generosity I decided to take option #2. You can buy me a copy of Cafe Internatational and I will buy my daughter one more present from Amazon.

I'm not sure what to do next, and its hard to see the computer screen now anyway. I'm still crying. Thank you.

Jerry

Hi Jerry!

They say giving is more rewarding than receiving, so you can imagine how I feel! It's great to be able to do something for you, even if I don't know you so you're more than welcome!

Let me know what you would like for your daughter. If the total cost of the game + present for your daughter is somewhere around 50 I'll pay the present as well.

Just send me the link to her gift and your adress. I'll get the stuff to you as soon as possible. See it as a christmas gift

Cheers!

Ralf

Ralf,

How do you say "thank you" in Dutch? I can't say thank you enough.

The link for Cafe International:

http://www.amazon.com/Amigo-Caf?tag=article-boardgamegeek-20é-International-Board-Game/dp/B00BQBMVR2/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1387469267&sr=1-1&keywords=cafe+international

I found Sentinels of the Multiverse for my daughter Ginger. This is a game I have never played but she has played twice loved it. Its $19 and change. That OK?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0095ZFA5Q/ref=sr_1_1...

My address is:

Address edited out

And finally, do you want to remain anonymous, or can I share this on the geek?

And I still can't say thank you enough.

Jerry

Hi! Just ordered everything! It should arrive the 27th of December :-)

Enjoy! Could you let me know when it arrives safely?

And I don't really mind either being anonymous or whether you share it. Whatever you feel like

Cheers!

Ralf


On behalf of my wife and daughters I would like to thank Ralf again.
