Charterstone Early Bundle Charity Auction
Thanks to the generosity of the 10 winning bidders, $6,025 is going to the various charities selected by content creators, along with an additional $4,950 from Stonemaier Games. The overall total, $10,975, is more than double last year's total!
In 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 we raised a total of $14,559 for 42 different charities selected by some of our favorite bloggers, podcasters, and video creators. We're back this year to auction off early, signed copies of Charterstone*, plus the recharge pack, custom meeples from Meeplesource, and realistic resources from Top Shelf Gamer.
As a special bonus this year, Stonemaier Games will match the winning bid for each of the 10 auctions (up to $500 each) to double the corresponding charitable donation.
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 Wednesday, November 1 and will end on Sunday, November 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 also receive an early copy of Charterstone. So you can support your favorite media creator(s) without even bidding!
--200% of all winning bids (minus BGG processing fees) will go to the charities selected by these media creators. That is, we will match each winning bid (up to $500) for the charitable donation.
The winning bidder of each auction will receive:
--1 early, signed copy of Charterstone
--1 copy the Charterstone recharge pack
--1 set of custom Charterstone meeples from Meeplesource
--1 set of realistic resource tokens for Charterstone from Top Shelf Gamer
--Free shipping anywhere in the world from St. Louis
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!
*Charterstone will be available from most retailers on December 12.
