Okay, it's about time we war gamers had one of these. I have participated in the original chain of generosity for several years and it is pretty cool. I have watched with interest a noble effort put forth by one of our own, Wargamers Paying It Forward. It has suffered though by being first come first win, so many people get left out because they aren't fast on the trigger. The other issue has been people taking game without having something of equal or greater value to give back. That is important on these chains. If you are here to just get a freebie and not give back in the spirit of generosity then move along.

Here are the rules, blatantly copied, with some alterations, from the Original BGG Chain of Generosity:

Here's how the BGG Chain of Generosity (The Chain) works:

Step 1: A user (ME) seeds a giveaway chain with a game or combination of games. Other people may comment, "I'm in.", the item in order to enter to win it. After a week or two, a winner is drawn randomly from the entrants.

Step 2: The recipient of the game will then choose a game from their collection (probably from their trade list) and post it as an item on the geeklist for more people (or maybe the same people) to comment on and enter to win in a similar fashion.. After a few days or a week (this can vary) they will do a drawing, and someone else will win the game.

Step 3: The new recipient repeats step 2, Lather, rinse, repeat.

OTHER RULES:

1. You must comment to the item in question, indicating you wish to be in the drawing to receive it, in order to be eligible to win.

2. If you win one, you MUST post a game of your own to give away in the same fashion. If you don't like that idea, don't play.

3. In the unlikely event that nobody enters to win your game by 48 hours after posting, try a different game in its place.

4. Sender pays shipping, unless he indicates in his entry that the recipient will, and under what grounds (International shipping, etc). Anyone signing up to receive an item where recipient pays shipping agrees to do so.

Other Considerations:

The game you post should be one that most of the wargame community might want to have. Ideally, one on your trade list. The dual-purpose of this list is to spread goodwill and give unwanted games a good home.

Added- The list is a generosity list. Please be generous. Try and match the value of the item you received when choosing which game to give away. I really want to keep up the values of items being given away.

You can win multiple times. Just keep in mind each time you win a game you'll be giving another one away.

This is an international list. If you participate you agree to ship internationally, although you can require the winner to pay for shipping. Please state your shipping conditions in the listing.

Everybody ready?

This is a Richard Berg designed and GMT published game about Alexander the Great vs the Persians. Point to point map. Cards are for events. The game is in excellent condition. The unit counters are punched and bagged. Many of the markers are still unpunched. I set it up once and ran through a few turns. I think it would be a fun game which is why I have hung onto it. I acquired it used but it looks hardly played. The box is intact with some shelf wear/whiting on the corners. Lid bows a little on the top.

Will ship for free within the USA. I will cover first $10 for international participants, who will have to cover the balance payable via Paypal.

Random draw on Saturday August 23.

There is a good chance I will add another game or two to this listing.

Here we go!

EDIT: New stuff added here!



This is a played copy. Box shows heavy shelf wear. Sleeve is in good shape. Map and counters in good shape.

In addition I am including a homemade plastic camo dice cup and two red D6 with tanks as the 6 number.

A few years ago, but long after this game had gone out of print, MMP announced that they found some components in the warehouse that they could make a few copies of SP-II out of, and the first responders would get them. I was one of them, and that's how I got the game. The only component they had run out of was the exclusive rules, which they copied onto tabloid paper, so it still folds like a booklet.

I never got the errata counters for the game, but the files are available online for cutting and pasting if you want to fix up your own.

The game is unpunched, unplayed, and even includes the dice. Lots of folks are crazy about SCS games, but I just never got into it.

I will pick a winner on Friday, 8/29, sometime after 12:00 PM Central. Will also throw in one or two smaller freebies as well.

Will ship free to USA. Will cover first $12.00 for shipping to other countries, winner pays the balance.

This is a from the BGG description.

From the autumn of 1805 through the climactic summer of 1815, the entire 10 year conflict between France, England, Austria, Prussia, Russia, and Spain, is re-created in 10 separate scenarios. Each historical scenario is presented as a separate 2-player game with an average playing time of 2-3 hours.

Avalon Hill Complexity rating - 5

Included are the following scenarios: I. Austerlitz, 1805; II. Jena to Friedland, 1806-07; III. Wagram, 1809; IV. Napoleon in Russia, 1812; V. The War of Liberation, 1813; VI. Napoleon at Bay, 1814; VII. Waterloo, 1815 VIII. The Peninsular War, 1808-1814; IX. Spain: 1811-1814; X. War and Peace: 1805-1815 Grand Campaign Game.

Will ship for free within the USA. I will cover first $10 for international participants, who will have to cover the balance payable via Paypal.

This is a punched and bagged copy. Box shows moderate-heavy shelf wear but is in good shape. Maps and counters in good shape.

Random draw on Friday September 5th, sometime in the evening.

Update: The random pick will be done around 5pm EDT. Update 2: Winner!!!!

Quote:
From Ted Raicer the award-winning designer of Paths of Glory and World War II: Barbarossa to Berlin comes a fresh new look at the most titanic and brutal land campaign ever waged, the war between Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Soviet Union.

Stalin's War is a unique card-driven, hex-based game, a combination that allows players to experience a broad range of strategic and tactical options as they maneuver their forces across a large hex map that stretches from Berlin to the Urals.

Stalin's War allows player to recreate WWII's greatest battles of encirclement as Axis Armies and Panzer Corps clash with Soviet Fronts and Armies on a front a thousand miles wide. Simple but effective rules allow you to use your mechanized forces to blitz the enemy's front line and exploit deep into your opponent's rear. Can you as the Soviets survive the slashing Panzer attacks of Operation Barbarossa and Case Blue in 1941 and 1942? Can you as the Axis player stand against the crushing Soviet Deep Battle operations that destroyed Army Group Center in 1944? Stalin's War will test both player's operational skills to the limit.

But there is more to Stalin's War than directing your forces on the map. Both sides have their own deck of 55 cards, needed to launch offensive operations, mobilize their forces, replace losses, introduce new weapons, and deal with the larger strategic context of a World at War. Card Events include combat leaders, weapons (from German Tiger Tanks to patriotic Soviet mice nibbling the electrical wiring of the panzers), the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, Manstein's Backhand Blow, Stalin's and Hitler's meddling, the Battle of the Bulge, and much more.

Stalin's War allows players to combine the best of WWII operational play with the strategic depth and tactical chrome of a card driven design. A genuine new look the the most important theater of WWII, this is a game you want to play again and again.

(Taken from rear of the game box)

Punched and in pretty good condition. Map is paper but you can get a mounted map from GMT if you so wish.

This is a good looking game just not my thing.

I might add another game to this mid-week.

Random draw next Friday in the evening hours, EDT.

Good luck!

Shipping: Free to US addresses. Will cover $12.00 for international shipping.

(Edited: to correct spelling and add shipping info)

(EDIT: Adding a game!)

I will include Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign. This is another game that I wanted to play and had setup but I could not get into. Would include the magazine if so wanted.

Okay, here is my submission. One of my all-time favorites and out of print for years and years. Advanced Third Reich by Avalon Hill. Mint in box. Actually, still has the plastic wrap on it from when I bought it (intending it as a gift never given and thus, a great gift for this list).

I will cover shipping within the continental US and up to $12.00 for shipping anywhere else.

Questions? Drop me a PM.

Good luck to everyone!

Random draw will take place one week from today - Sunday evening at Midnight, Mountain time.

Pick 2

For my offering, I have selected five games to choose from—the winning participant can choose two games as their prize.

The selection of the winner for this offering will be by random draw sometime in the evening one week from today on Monday, October 6th.

I will pay for all shipping costs within the US. I will pay for the first $20 of shipping costs for an international winner. I may even include some small surprise gifts with the games.


The Games




Beda Fomm
This is the first edition from Consim Press (2010). The game is unpunched and unplayed and is in excellent condition.




Hammer of the Scots
This is the first English edition by Columbia Games (2002). The game does have a printed copy of the Version 2.0 rules. There is some slight wear to the game box, but the components are in excellent condition.




Phantom Leader
This is the first edition by DVG games (2010). The game is punched and has been played a few times and is in excellent condition.




Patton's Best
This is the Avalon Hill edition (1987). The game is punched and complete and is very good condition considering its age (just some slight whitening on the box edges and fading of color on the game board).




Kingmaker
This is the Avalon Hill 2nd edition (1988). The game is punched and complete and is very good condition considering its age (the board doesn't lie completely flat without some coaxing).

I'll offer up a choice from the below selection. I'll make the random selection next Friday--24 October--then post the results. I'll cover U.S. shipping and the first $10 towards international shipping. Good luck!

Vietnam

Tet Offensive is complete and in good shape with some dishing on the box lid.

OR

Market Garden

Air Bridge to Victory is unpunched and unplayed.

OR

Bronze Age

The Trojan War is complete, but the box and components show their age. The box is thin and is rough overall. Keeping with the Bonze Age theme, Chariot Wars is in excellent condition.

I'll cover the first $10 of shipping costs to international winners. Drawing to be held either next Friday, or when the number of entries reaches 25, whichever comes first. Good Luck!

If you are fortunate enough to win, take note of Tom's remarks when he started this Wargame Chain of Generosity: "The list is a generosity list. Please be generous. Try and match the value of the item you received when choosing which game to give away. I really want to keep up the values of items being given away."

OR for those who desire a little OCS Burma

also unpunched, only the shrink has been removed

OR for those interested in CGACW Stonewall Jackson's Way

This game is Very Good + condition. Box solid & in pristine shape. Maps & player aids unmarked. Counters punched & baggied per scenarios. All items complete. A really nice copy to get you into The Gamers' Civil war Brigade series.

I will roll for the recipient late November 1st. I will also cover shipping within Canada & the USA. Elsewhere I will cover the first $15 dollars of Canada Post's ridiculous postage fees.

I also have this for consideration in case your not into the CW, keeping within the Gamers' oeuvre:

Stalingrad Pocket (1st ed.) is Game #1 in the Standard Combat series. The box has some edge wear but is in solid shape. Counters are punched & baggied. Contains all the items listed on the back cover except for 1 die.

*EDIT: Let me know which game you're interested in when you list-in. It'll just speed things up at the end. Thx.

This copy is new not in shrink opened to inspect contents only. A couple of the counters were loose from manufacturer. This edition also included the blue and grey dice.


And the winner also receives:

Advanced Tobruk

Not the entire game system just the Rule book, ATS sequence of play and all charts and tables for ATS Ver. 3.08. I originally bought this to use with VASSAL but stuck with ASL instead. Its NEW and in the Plastic ziplock bag it came in from Critical Hit.

Free shipping to US winners and I'll pay the first 10.00 dollars to overseas winners. NO RUSSIAN Shipping due to fraud and "lost" Packages.

Good luck!!!

Winner picked one week from today 16NOV2014

I won! I won! Now I get to let the generosity continue.

How about one for the war gamers who enjoy a solitaire game? The Field Commander series has been much acclaimed, this is the second in the series.

This game has been opened and played but it is in excellent condition. The counters are in a tray. The boards are a little warped. I think they came that way new. It does not affect playability. The game includes a print out of the FAQs and several color copies of the player log.

The game has four scenarios that combine into one campaign game. You take on the role of Alexander as you attempt to meet or exceed his many military and diplomatic triumphs. It is a very engaging game!

I will roll for a winner on Wednesday, November 26th, the day before Thanksgiving. I'm told that 10 days is too long so I will roll for a winner on Friday, November 21st. Don't wait! Get your entry in today!


The 21st has come and gone (it is early Saturday). We have 5 candidates now. I'm using the custom feature of the BGG die roll and rolling with the five user names. The die roll please...

Next up is your choice of TWO entries below:

Item 1: Panzer Grenadier: Afrika Korps (unpunched and unplayed)




Item 2: A House Divided: War Between the States 1861-65 (4th edition, pictured)



Item 3: For the bold among you, a pretty beaten up (but complete) copy of The Trojan War plus Chariot Wars rules for Warhammer Ancient Battles plus Hector and Achilles (which is not at all a wargame).



Item 4: Bitter Victory: The Invasion of Sicily, 1943




I'll draw the winner early on Friday, 12 December. I'll cover U.S. postage, $15 towards international.


Congratulations, Meisterchow (Charles Lewis)

Winner's choice of either one game or three games.

EITHER

Commands & Colors: Napoleonics (Played a few times.)

Note that the board is cleanly broken into two pieces at one of the folds (into a three-rectangle piece and a five-rectangle piece). This happened the very first time I opened the game, and I later read that this happened to others as well. The board lays flat, joins up nicely, and is no hindrance to play.

Blocks are sorted into two Plano boxes (included).

OR

A Victory Denied: Crisis at Smolensk, July-September, 1941 (Multiman Publishing edition, played once.)


AND

No Retreat 3: The French Front, May/June 1940 (VPG, polybag edition with the thick laser-cut counters, played twice.)


AND

Britannia (Avalon Hill edition with no original box, although it will be contained in a stout cardboard box of its own about the size of the original box---a GMT shipping box actually. Probably played many times, but only once by me.)


Free shipping to the United States or first $18 of shipping to the rest of the world.

I'll use random.org to draw a winner from whoever comments on this item. I'll do the drawing at around 10:00 a.m. EST, December 26, 2014.

Result:
Random.org has spoken. The winner is Chris Tham! Congratulations!

OK, I'm trying not to make this too complicated. The winner chooses one of the bundles below. Each bundle has two unpunched and one punched game, and the bundles are roughly equal in value (I hope!).

Bundle 1: STRATEGY
A House Divided: War Between the States 1861-65

In Acceptable to Good condition. Beat up, but the box is still intact and the parts are all there. (Note: The copy pictured is not my copy, but it's the same edition).

AND

COMMAND Magazine #35

Including TWO UNPUNCHED GAMES
Mason-Dixon: The Second American Civil War
and
Balkan Hell

AND

Strategy & Tactics Magazine #139

Including a punched copy of Arabian Nightmare: The Kuwait War

–OR–

Bundle 2: TACTICS
Rebel Yell

Box opened, but game unpunched

AND

Strategy & Tactics Magazine #143

Including the unpunched game Rio Grande: The Battle of Valverde

AND

Strategy & Tactics Magazine #55

Including the punched game Breitenfeld


I will draw the winner on Saturday, 1/24 sometime in the evening, EST.

SHIPPING: Free to the USA. If it costs more than $20 to ship it outside the US, winner to pay the balance to me through PayPal.

GOOD LUCK!

1/21/15 EDIT: DUE TO UNDERWHELMING RESPONSE: The winner may choose one BUNDLE -AND- one MAGAZINE from the other bundle.

The box is in good condition with some dishing and scuffs, but no splits. The rules are in very good condition, but with some underlining in a few paragraphs in the first few pages. The maps are in very good condition (no tears). The counters are punched (not clipped) and in very good condition (only missing 1 of the 70 ops complete markers; all other counters, including the blanks, are present) in GMT counter tray (edges trimmed to fit in the box). One of the two dice is missing.

I will pick a winner sometime Sunday (2/8) evening. I will ship free to USA and will pay the first $15.00 for shipping to other countries, winner pays the balance.

edit: counters counted (noted above)

I will roll the die for the winner on Thursday, Feb. 19 after the kids are in bed approx. 9:00 EST.

I couldn't find the random roller here on the geek. Granted it was late and more than a couple beers into my eveningwhistle
So I used Mathgoodies.com. I ran 5 tests with 1-100 to make sure it was legit then put in 1-31 for all the folks that showed interest. And the winner is.......
