BGG Military History Book Chain of Generosity
- Ryan Powers(keethrax)United States
BGG WARGAME Chain of Generosity and the popularity of the monthly Military History Bookshelf threads, I figured why not try to combine the two.
Here are the rules, blatantly copied, with some alterations, from the Original BGG Chain of Generosity vai the BGG Wargame 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 book or combination of books. 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 book will then choose a book or books from their collection 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.
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 book 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. 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. 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. Since these are books, media mail should provide an attractive low-cost option in many cases.
The book you post should be one that most of the wargame community might want to have. The dual-purpose of this list is to spread goodwill and give unwanted books 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 book 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.
