Hey there again! Last year, I ran a little giveaway contest to a random user for no other reason than to give back to a community I have come to love and spread the joy. The rules will be very similar again so enjoy and have fun!

Without further ado, the giveaway rules are as follows:
1To be eligible you must post a geeklist item below (maximum one per user).
2 The post should include the board game you are requesting
3 You also need to post ONE reason why you want said game and ONE reason why you have not yet pulled the trigger and bought the game yourself.
4 The requested board game must be readily accessible and not exceed $75 USD in new condition
5 This giveaway is open to all users BUT users without Continental U.S. Shipping Addresses will be responsible for paying for all applicable taxes and shipping fees. Shipping will be provided free of charge to users in the Continental United States
6 The giveaway contest will end on Wednesday, May 6 at 9:00 a.m. EST. at which point I will randomly select a winner from the list of all applicable entries only. If you fail to adhere to any of the following conditions, you will not be included in the selection process.

At the conclusion of the contest, I will send a GM to the winner congratulating them and requiring the shipping address. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to GM me and good luck to everyone!


THE RESULTS ARE IN!!!
Thank you all for participating in this year's contest, but the winner this year was:

This one is easy.

ONE REASON I WANT IT: Actually there are 2 - Nathan and Zach (my 19 year old son and 9 year old son). They are both HUGE Star Wars fans, and would love a game like this.

ONE REASON I HAVEN'T PULLED THE TRIGGER: Price...sort of. We already have Epic Duels (two copies) and a decent Star Wars TCG and a Star Wars Risk. My wife would not be pleased if I dropped $70 on another Star Wars game.

Thank you for the opportunity - and your amazing generosity. thumbsup

How very generous of you, thank you.

I'm attracted to Witness for its wonderful artwork, which matches that in the comics of my childhood. The game's mechanics also seem fresh.

I haven't bought it myself yet because it's not available where I live.

I would like Robinson Crusoe because I've heard such great things about this cooperative game which depth/complexity I believe I would thoroughly enjoy.

I haven't "pulled the trigger" yet because I'm not exactly sure how my wife will respond to the game as to the depth/complexity of this game. So I'm a bit on the fence with it.

I see Miniature Market has it for $55.19; CoolStuffInc has it for $54.99; Amazon has it for $74.95.

Thanks for your generosity.

ONE REASON I WANT IT:

I recently started playing Euro-style games and have found a new calling. I have never played this, but I have seen how high it is rated, watched on-line play, and know it is right up my alley.

ONE REASON I HAVEN'T PULLED THE TRIGGER:

Money. I do A LOT of Salvation Army searching for games (cheap!!!), but rarely do I find something like this. I am sure it is worth the money, just can't make the leap.

Thank you for this contest and opportunity!

Why I Want It: I don't own any hidden movement games, so would like this as a new game to help diversify the collection even more.

Why I Haven't Pulled The Trigger: With a couple large game groups, games at lower player counts (this plays up to 4) do not see much table time as opposed to 5-6+ games.

Thank you for this contest! You are both a gentleman and a scholar!

Why I Want It: I need more dice in my life!

Why I Haven't Pulled The Trigger: After our first year in hobby gaming, my wife and I have decided to limit our game buying to 3 times a year (TableTop Day, for Christmas, and somewhen in between) and this game just didn't quite make it into the TableTop Day cart. Something about my 1 year old needing food and a roof over his head or something, I dunno...

Reason I want it: We're going on a family vacation with my parents and sister (and her family) for my parents' 40th anniversary, and I think it would be a fun game to bring along and teach to everyone.

Reason I haven't pulled the trigger yet: I try to limit my board game acquisitions to my birthday (March) and Christmas lists, for budget and sanity reasons. :-)

Thank you so much for your generosity in offering this!

The reviews are good, the play experience seems deep and interesting. I WANT this game since I feel its a better experience than some games in the co-op/survival genre like Pandemic (too hard, formulaic at times, Arkham Horror (difficulty level too extreme, with little room for error), Descent (rules intensive, I found this to go way, way too long), or Battlestar Galactica (just depressing IMO). Dead of Winter is just tense enough, with thoughtful decisions. I haven't bought it yet because it is a commitment of money I don't quite have right now. But with the various game nights I host, this could really get everyone excited and see more regular replay than some of our (current) options. Most of our group like Eclipse, but the play experience of a true co-op hasn't hit our table since HeroQuest (also a long time favorite). Sentinels of the Multiverse has run its course with us too (I think, maybe it's just on hiatus). So Dead of Winter could really be it, if I weren't plopping down $$$ for real life "adventures". Hah!

ONE reason why I want said game: My resident Star Wars addict, Emiliano (age 9), would be ecstatic!

ONE reason why you have not yet pulled the trigger and bought the game yourself: Already have Descent, which makes me wonder if we need both. (Just for clarification, the 9 year old says we do.)

Awesome giveaway -- thanks!!

Just missed out on my lucky #13!

Why I want it: It's a dice placement game that plays in an hour with fun art/theme and people seem to like it.

Why I haven't bought it: Kinda pricey and there are so many differences between all the different print runs I don't know which one to get.

Thanks for the awesome offer, again!

its Star Wars, with descent rules, it has freakin Vader in it.

Why I haven't pulled the trigger:
Its yet another sci-fi tactical skirmish style game. I've acquired and traded away both Level 7 Omega protocol and Galaxy Defenders within the last year. Its Descent 2.5, and I wasn't thrilled with Descent 1 or 2. Third time's the charm?

Why I want it: Dungeon Crawls are among my favorite genres of games. However, I have a very difficult time getting anything that resembles DM-run games to the table, just by the nature of my regular playgroup. Thus, quicker co-op games like the D&D Adventure games are better. My son enjoys fantasy-themed books and these types of games, too, so I would love to play this with him.

Why I haven't pulled the trigger: My son and prospective partner for this game is almost 7. I've had my eye on this since it came out, but I thought maybe he was too young and I had other items on my wish-list that I thought would get played sooner. However, I think he's getting close to the right age to dive into this one!

Thanks for this giveaway; this is really an awesome thing to do!

Thank you for holding this game giveaway. Things like this make the board game community, and more specifically BGG, the best community on the internet. I hope I am able to do something like this in the future.

Why I Want It: It is my favorite game. Plain and Simple.

Why I Haven't Pulled The Trigger: A family member I see occasionally has it but we haven't played in a very long time because we have so many unplayed games. I have the 1982 version but I'd love an updated version with all the nice bits to replace my falling apart copy.

Why I haven't pulled the trigger: Money. I hardly ever buy games new at full price and I'm always sniffing around for deals on used games. That being said I haven't ran across anyone selling their copy of this game yet (and I suspect I won't for awhile).

Why do I want it?
Reviews of it have been very kind from sources I tend to agree with. Plaid Hat in general has a great production value, and their games are just FUN. I would love to get it and bring it to the table, and see all of the fantastic interactions it affords.

Why have I not gotten it?
Well until relatively recently it has been hard to come by at a reasonable price. Also I would be hard pressed to explain to my wife a zombie themed game. For they tend to be a theme she refuses to want to know, play or spend money on (happy wife, happy life). Now if it was a prize I think I could get her into it and I know our game group would be all about it.

This is the one on my radar list. I love almost anything Days of Wondor makes. After watching a review I knew I wanted to get this to the table.

The reason I have not pulled the trigger is that I ma trying to curb my addiction to buying games! I have sold off most o0f my collection, not for the money and not because I did not like the games...I just needed to get a reality check on me and games. I have to be really choosy now and really think about a purchase etc....this games looks like it would make the cut in my new and improved buying/acquiring technique.

One reason why: I think the game will appeal to both gamers and family nongamers who I try to buy games to play with.

One reason why I haven't pulled the trigger: My uncertainty on weather it will appeal to all. I have a difficult time trying to balance the two and my limited gaming budget makes it hard to guess wrong and have a game that neither group enjoys.

I've been looking at this one for a while. I love Memoir and this seems like the next logical step. I just haven't been able to pull the trigger on this due to money and opportunity.
