The auction is closed! Thank you so much to everyone who participated. We raised a total of $5,285 for the 10 charities selected by these content creators, an amount that includes a $600 money match from Fulfillrite. Also, congrats to Actualol for garnering 163 thumbs--thanks to your fan support, Jon will receive an advance review copy of Charterstone in 2017.

In 2013, 2014, and 2015 we raised a total of $9,264 for 32 different charities selected by some of our favorite bloggers, podcasters, and video creators. We're back this year to auction off the first few copies of Scythe: Invaders from Afar* and the last few copies of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition, which we've been saving for this special occasion.

As a special bonus this year, Fulfillrite has offered to match the highest winning bid across all auctions dollar-for-dollar (up to $2,000) to double that charitable contribution. Fulfillrite has received rave reviews from a number of Kickstarter creators for their order fulfillment service: https://apps.shopify.com/fulfillrite-order-fulfillment.

Here's how it works:

This Geeklist features 10 separate auctions. Each auction is attributed to an amazing blog, podcast, or video channel and their charity of choice.

The auctions will begin on Thursday, December 1 and will end on Monday, December 5 at 2:00 pm CST. Payments will be submitted to us through the BGG marketplace (PayPal) after the auctions close, and the games will be shipped within a few days.

--Bidding starts at $1. Bids must increase in increments of at least $1 USD. To discourage final-hour sniping, in the final hour of the auction, bids must increase in increments of at least $25.
--Each auction will have 1 winner. Thus there will be 10 winners.
--The content creator whose auction garners the most thumbs will receive an advance copy of Charterstone upon release in 2017. So you can support your favorite media creator(s) without even bidding!
--100% of all winning bids (minus BGG processing fees) will go to the charities selected by these media creators.
--The single highest winning bid amount (across all auctions) will be matched by Fulfillrite up to $2,000 to double the amount donated to charity.

The winning bidder of each auction will receive:

--1 copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition
--1 copy the expansion, Scythe: Invaders from Afar
--Free shipping anywhere in the world from the fulfillment center in Oregon

Winning bidders will have 3 days to pay; after that we'll revert to the second-highest bidder.

Thank you for supporting these amazing charities and talented content creators!

*Scythe: Invaders from Afar will be available from most retailers sometime between December 1 and 8 (depending on store/location). It will arrive at retailers in Europe (along with a reprint of Scythe) a few days later.

1-PLAYER PODCAST - Doctors Without Borders

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the 1-Player Podcast--an superb podcast about solitaire gaming--run by Albert and Julius, who selected Doctors Without Borders as their charity of choice.

"For me, this is a charity I support because I understand the value of a healthy body. MSF provides medical care and services for people in countries and places where the people there need it the most. They have reacted quickly and provided care in disaster zones and high need locations, giving relief to people who would be in serious situations without assistance."

ALL THE MEEPLES OF THE RAINBOW - Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA)

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the All the Colors of the Rainbow blog on BGG--an beautifully written and photographed blog about all the games Steph plays every week. Steph selected the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America as her charity of choice.

"I am picking this charity because I have Crohn's Disease. It was really hard growing up with Crohn's. I was hospitalized in 7th grade, right in the center of middle school. It had been a hard road, but I was fortunate and I had the best care. I only hope other children and adults see the same results I have in the past years. Without the on going research we might not have the medications we do today and for that I am forever grateful. I have had Crohn's since I was 9, and only wish the best to everyone who finds they, or a loved one have been diagnosed with these diseases."

SO1KS - Children's Hospital of Wisconsin

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the So1ks blog, a well written series of reviews about a wide variety of tabletop games by Josh and Jordan. Josh selected the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin as his charity of choice.

"This year Jordan (one of the reviewers and close friend) and his wife had a child named Roland (Rollie) Maxwell Edinger. Unfortunately Rollie was born with Edward's Syndrome and complications from that disorder. Roland spent his entire life at Children's hospital NICU and was known as the NICU Ninja. Sadly he passed away on 7/21. The staff at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin was amazing, going through the halls and seeing all the kids being strong has left a mark in my heart. Children's has provided so much to families in the area. It would be an honor to help give back to them."

DRAFT MECHANIC - Pints for Prostates

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the Draft Mechanic podcast, a wonderful podcast about games (and sometimes about beer). Danielle and Jake selected the Pints for Prostates as their charity of choice.

"Having lost a family member to cancer, as far too many families have, we understand that early detection and awareness are key. Pints for Prostates works to spread awareness and facilitate screenings for prostate cancer through collaboration with the craft beer community. Too often such a personal topic is not brought to light but we have had several opportunities to see the work they do making sure embarrassment does not lead to neglect or lack of support."

BRAWLIN' BROTHERS - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the Brawlin' Brothers podcast, a great gaming podcast where Brandon and Josh go head to head about a number of different games. Brandon and Josh selected the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as their charity of choice.

Cancer. It seems that it effects almost everyone we know in one way or another. We seem to all know someone, have family or maybe personally have dealt with cancer and its effects on both the body and the mind, emotionally. For the Brawling Brothers, it’s very personal. We have seen several of our family members suffer from this horrible disease and it never gets any easier. Josh remembers going to the hospital – daily – with his 7 year old brother for leukemia treatments. Needles, tears, chemotherapy, pain and suffering were all experienced during this time, but one thing never went away: Hope. And because of that strength in hope, Josh’s brother endured, got better and made it through a very difficult time. And today, it is our continued hope that less and less people – especially children – should have to deal with this horrible disease as we work towards better research and treatment for a cure. This is why we have chosen to support St Jude Research Facility.

Even if you think you know what St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is all about, I promise you'll be blown away by the sheer scope of what the hospital offers. There so many things to love about St Jude, but here is just 5 things to admire:

1. No family pays for care—or really, anything else
2. Children continue with their education- even through patient treatment.
3. Research is just as important as treatment.
4. Its research is making a huge difference to survival rates.
5. They have the best staff – it’s a happy place for patients

The details to the 5 things above and more reasons to support St. Jude can be found on their website.

Since most of us can relate to the affect that cancer has played in our lives, we ask you to help support the best family/children focused research facilities in the world, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

INSTA GAMERS NETWORK - Ottawa Humane Society (OHS)

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the Insta Gamers Network on YouTube, a fantastic video channel that features a diverse group of people and their opinions about games. Mandi selected the Ottawa Humane Society as their charity of choice.

"I currently volunteer at a variety of the events with the OHS (i.e., Wiggle Waggle Walk-a-thon) in order to raise money. I have had several rescue dogs over the years and it legitimately hurts my soul that some people would treat animals so cruelly. Animals don't have a voice and I think it's important and it's our obligation to help animals in need."

MAN VS MEEPLE - ALS Association

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the Man vs Meeple YouTube channel, a really well produced video game review channel from Jeremy and David. Jeremy selected the ALS Association as their charity of choice.

"My wife's father was stricken with ALS in his early 60's. Prior to the diagnosis, my wife and I had only vaguely been aware of what ALS was and how debilitating of a disease that is was for the thousands of people throughout the world. 3 years ago my father in law passed away quite viciously from this incurable death sentence and it was an extremely challenging part of time for everyone that cared for him. Each year, our family donates money to the ALS Association and participates in a variety of events within the local Indiana chapter in support of his legacy and the thousands of souls who are condemned to the horrible symptoms of the disease."

LOW PLAYER COUNT - Operation Kindness

This copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector's Edition and Invaders from Afar are up for auction in recognition of the Low Player Count podcast, an excellent podcast featuring discussions about games played by 1-2 players. Donny, Shawn, and Travis selected the Operation Kindness as their charity of choice.

"As three families without children, our pets are our kids. They're the ones who are excited to see us when we get home (well, except Shawn's cats). Their lives are the ones we care for, and we can't imagine our lives without them in it. So to us, Operation Kindness is the place to be. It is the largest no-kill animal shelter that over its 40 year existence has found homes for over 85,000 dogs and cats. They provide medical care, foster care, and other services so dogs and cats can find a new home."
