Our annual Diabetes fundraiser boardgame convention is comming up soon.

See: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/2160278#2160278


Some of the members of our group donate games to be secretly auctioned off with the proceedes going to the Diabetes Association. Last year I donated a few thrift-store finds and a couple resonable games to the auction. I think Poison and Diamant were probably the best of the lot. This year I have a bunch more thrift stuff to go, but I want to donate a slightly better game that will, with any luck, bring in some extra money. It would be really cool to see some "fighting" over it in the secret auction.

So that is where this geek list comes in. I'd like to ask you BGG people to vote on or thumb the game that you think will bring in the most bucks. The ONE game that gets the most votes/thumbs will be donated.


I'll be adding games over the next few days as I go through my collection to see what I can let go of. (I'm gonna find this hard to do - just so you know)

Feel free to make suggestions from my collection. I may not use a suggestion, but I will listen and consider it.

This one will be easy to donate, as I'm not a huge fan.

I could let this go as my dh takes too long to play his moves and that kills the game for me.

I like it, but it might bring in the cash and I can live without it.

If you want a great game that people ages 10 - 100 will actually play then this is it.

Relatively less expensive game that can be learned in 30 seconds and played by up to 5 in about 10 minutes. And, it's very fun and replayable.

Here's a very fun trivia game that is not as much about how much you know, but can you bet which of the players knows or is closest to the correct answer. Fun combination of trivia and light betting.

Great fast-playing game of knowledge perfect for parties and teams. And, there's no real board so everyone can play from their easy chairs. Can your team list 10 oceanfront states in 60 seconds? Or the names of 10 baseball teams? Or 10 items found on pizza? Shout out the answers. Get one point for each correct answer. Our variant is if Team 1 doesn't get them all, then Team 2 gets 2 points if they can come up in 10 seconds with one of the answers Team 1 missed. Also, it's easy to write up your own questions: 10 schools in our town, 10 restaurants in our town, etc.
