Welcome everyone to the December Edition of the Geekgold for Game Lottery. Thanks Blott for the amazing Idea and thanks everyone who took part last time.

These are the Rules

How to bid for an item?
If you see an item on this geeklist that you're interested in owning:
1. It couldn't be more simple. Just tip that entry 1 and you are entered to win that game.
2. Check the description to see if you are allowed more than one entry on the item.

How to put an item on the lottery?
If you have a game that you're willing to part with for a little geekgold:
1. Post it as an item on the list.
2. Include a full description of the edition that you have and its condition. Be very clear on conditions, marks and box
3. Specify if you will be limited in shipping options. If you ship internationally, if the shipping is on you, and if so how much.
4. Specify when your item will close for entries.
5. You can post both RPG Items and Boardgames.
6. The item must be draw before 31st of December 2009

What to do when the lottery ends?
1. When closed, draw a random name from those that have tipped your entry. If you allowed multiple entries remember to take it in consideration.
2. Contact that person and arrange shipment of the game.
3. Send them the game.
4. Edit your geeklist item on this list with a note saying that "THIS ITEM IS CLOSED!" and to put the avatar of the winner, use the code [ username=name_of_winner] (without the space) for that.
5. When an item is closed I will move it to the bottom of the list. Please don't delete them

How to find the winner?
You can use any fair method you like, like putting the names on a hat and drawing it.

created an wonderful application that you can find here. It is very simple to use.
1. Got to the url by clicking here.
2. When you mouseover on the number of your item, you get a URL like this
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/46332/item/1043139#ite....
Your item id is the number after item, in this case it would be 1043139
3. As for bonus, for now the system can only work with given 1 for a given number of . For example, every 5 gets you 1 bonus.
4. You can limit too the amount of a user will be able to use to enter the contest

Special notes
Special Note #1: If you are giving an item, there is no guarantee for number of entrants. You must be prepared to give away your game even if you only receive a single geekgold entry. Do not enter a game unless you are prepared for that outcome!!

Special Note #2: If for any reason you are forced to withdraw a game you offered, you must refund all geekgold tipped to your entry.

Winners and Drawn Items
I will keep an item as the first item on this list keeping a link to all already drawn items and the winners so it is easier to check.

He has worked tirelessly to allow us a new way to waste more time on BGG and fatten our pockets with GG. However, in return, he gets to sit on the sidelines of the game he created. I don't know about you, but I don't think that's fair. So, this is my way of helping our benefactor enjoy a little bit of the fruits of his own labor. Please read the rules below carefully.

Rules #1: The winner of this lottery will receive a $50 gift certicifate from any worldwide online gaming retailer they prefer. Obviously open to everyone.

Rule #2: For every GG tipped to this lottery, 50% will go directly to Sol. We truly appreciate your wonderful efforts to make this geeklist enjoyable for everyone else. Now, instead of dipping into the BGG Admin's GG cookie jar, please join us in the fun.

Sweetner: If the pot reaches over 5000 GG, I will choose a second winner to receive another $50 gift certicifate. Please be generous and let's show Sol some love.

1GG = 1 entry
5GG = 10 entries
10GG = 25 entries
15GG = 45 entries
20GG = 70 entries
25GG = 100 entries

To clarify how the numbers work more specifically. On any numbers greater than 25gg, I guess I would subtract in increments of 25gg from it for 100 entries each, then use the same process all the way down. If it's a number smaller than 25, the same process would apply using the largest increment it contains. Here are some examples.

18gg = 48 entries
23gg = 73 entries
41gg = 146 entries
56gg = 211 entries
77gg = 302 entries

Shipping: Free for all participants worldwide

Deadline: I'll let this run all month long until December 31 27 and send the gift certicifates to the lucky winners on New Year's Day. Good luck to all !!!


Edit #1: Bolded some more words

Edit #2: Changed wording in rule #1 to clarify worldwide question

Edit #3: End date moved up to 12/27/09. Leaving out of country. Sorry if this caused any inconvenience.

Glad you got it! I knew the free international shipping was going to bite me in the ass sooner or later. My other lotto for Lost Cities is going international too. zombie


So here is the second expansion I'm offering for Arkham Horror. Yes it's an awesome game but my playgroup never wants to play it because of game length, so the expansions have never hit the table. Curse of the Dark Pharaoh is currently listed on last month's lottery and I will be listing one expansion each month for the next 4 months since I bought all 6 before finding out that my gaming group never wants to play it. My loss is hopefully your gain.

Condition
The box has been opened, but it is in like new/never been played condition.

Shipping
Shipping will be free anywhere in the world.

Closing Time
This auction will close on December 30th sometime around 5 pm eastern time.

Rules for Entry
Each Geek Gold will count as 1 entry. 5 will get you 6 entries and 10 will get you 15 entries. The winner will be drawn using Sol's new application which can be found here http://www.castelodelego.org/sol/item.php . It is an incredible tool for those of us listing items in these lotteries. It's much easier than using a spreadsheet and random.org, plus it is easily verifiable for anyone who wants to check the results. Check it out!



Sorry for yet another entry distribution break down Sol.

Good luck all!

edit 1: typo in the number of expansions, should read all 6 not all 4.
edit 2: adding that the winner will be drawn using Sol's new lottery program.
edit 3: I'm closing this on the 30th instead of the 31st because I have a date for New Years and we're spending the whole day together. Woohoo!

Condition
FFG. Complete and in very good condition. The box bottom has a tear in the corner (not the entire corner, but partial). Some corners of the box look kind of "mushed", but everything inside is in terrific condition (including all Hobbits are intact) and the box is actually not in bad shape.

1GG = 1 entry
5GG = 10 entries
10GG = 25 entries
15GG = 45 entries

Another Eight Magic Decks

Sure! You could pay over ten bucks for a vaguely playable "the first hit isn't free" introductory pack, or you could get *eight* Magic common decks of long out-of-print cards! Each deck is 60-cards, and contains one or two colors, and the occasional artifact. Cards are from sets including and before Weatherlight (ie. 2000 and earlier), with the "old" (non-retarded) card layout.

TERMS:

* Value: At least $32, if you believe these jerks who have the gall to sell Commons for ten cents apiece.
* PLUS: A random high bidder will be offered the second set of eight decks for $5 shipping (domestic) or international postage. (Uh... assuming I have enough land cards...)

DRAWING: December 31st. December 15th or a the day of the month equal to the pot!

PREVIEW: A few decks from last month's lottery!

BONUS: If the pot goes over 10 geekgold, I will add the Cumulative High Bidder decks! This is a third set of Magic decks available for shipping ($5 domestic) to the person who has bid the most cumulative geekgold in my lotteries and has not won yet (including this month's sets of decks).

BONUS: If the pot goes over 20 geekgold, I will add a signed Quinton Hoover Magic card to the winner of the lottery (ie. first set of) decks!

BONUS: If the pot goes over 30 geekgold, I will add a foreign Magic card to the winner of the lottery decks and another foreign Magic card to the winner of the highest bid decks!

BONUS: If the pot goes over 40 geekgold, I will add a second signed Quinton Hoover Magic card to the winner of the lottery decks!

BONUS: If the pot goes over 50 geekgold, I will add a signed Quinton Hoover Magic card[/b] to the winner of the high bid decks!

BONUS:If the pot goes over 60 geekgold, I will add a second foreign Magic card to the winner of the lottery decks and another foreign Magic card to the winner of the highest bid decks!

BONUS:If the post goes over 120 geekgold, I will add a signed Quinton Hoover foreign Magic card to the winners of the lottery decks and the highest bid decks!

BONUS: If the post goes over 130 geekgold, I will add a third foreign Magic card to the winner of the lottery decks and another foreign Magic card to the winner of the highest bid decks!

BONUS: If the post goes over 160 geekgold, I will add a fourth foreign Magic card to the winner of the lottery decks and another foreign Magic card to the winner of the highest bid decks!

THIS EXHIBIT IS CLOSED!!!

Winner has been drawn - I will be sending this out later in the week, along with everyone's Christmas/Holiday/New Years cards!

Thank you all for your participation!

UndeadViking's SECRET CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAYS!

Happy Holidays to you all!!

IMPORTANT RULES BELOW! READ THEM BEFORE YOU TIP A SINGLE GEEK GOLD!

I am going to be offering up several items for the month of December, and all of them will follow these basic rules:

1. Enter as much as you want.

2. 1 GG = 1 entry, bonus entry for every 5 geek gold you tip.

3. Drawing will be on the 25th of December, when Santa lets me know who wins.

4. Shipping world wide is on me.

5. If you tip me even a SINGLE geek gold, you HAVE to geekmail me your address. This is important because...

6. When Santa lets me know who wins, I am not going to inform anyone other than Sol, our awesome benefactor. What this means is, you will not know whether or not you have won the contest until you get your package in the mail! Yes, I know you will get your gift after Christmas, but consider it a New Years present instead.

7. All gifts will be in wrapping paper, so if you enter more than one of my giveaways, you won't know which one you have won until you open it.

8. You will be expected to post on the entry after you receive your package, to let everyone know who won.

9. If for some reason, you would like the game to go to someone else as a gift, that is fine with me, just make sure you give me their name and address instead of yours. Also, let me know if you want them to know it was from you or not, and I will put that in the package. If you want it to go to someone else but you don't know their address, say, a geekbuddy here on BGG, I will track their info down for you if you want to remain anonymous.

10. Most of all, have fun and happy bidding.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask away. The above is subject to alteration if most of the community wants something altered. I am open to any and all suggestions.

Finally, I will be throwing odds and ends into each package - nothing major or anything, just random geeky junk I have lying around the house or stuff I have found in dollar stores.

OK, you done reading all that? This particular offer is for...



I absolutely love this game, but I own two copies for some reason so I may as well hand one off to someone who will enjoy it. This is as pure as Ameritrash gets, and is simply an amazing game. If you like dice and action, you need to own this game.

Did I mention that it was Out of Print?

Condition: Out of Shrink but unpunched and in perfect condition. Everything is still in the original bags. Box shows a little scuffing.

Happy bidding, and I hope either you or the person you want this to go to enjoys the heck out of it.

ULTRA IMPORTANT EDIT

It has come to my attention that some of you are wary in giving out your address to me with no guarantee of receiving a prize. While I assure you, I will not use you address for any evil intentions, I can understand your concern. Therefore, I shall offer up this addendum:

1. If you want to enter and not send me your address, that is fine. I will contact you after the drawing IF you win, and send you your gift. I only ask that you do not post your success until after you receive said prize.

2. All contestants that do provide me with their address prior to the prize drawing will receive a Christmas Card from yours truly, with a personal message within, and a limited, one of a kind drawing made by my daughter Rilyn.

EDIT

I apologize for how long this is taking, I will not be drawing the winners until sometime tomorrow night. I just got done snowblowing my driveway and I am now inside, looking outside, watching it fill in again for the 5th time in the last 2 days. I am heading to the shower to combat the frostbite and then straight to bed.

For the time being - consider this offer OPEN and all tips will count until the drawing tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Another great game by FFG. When I won a copy here, I was surprised as anyone as I didn't enter many chances. As luck would have it, I already owned the game, and I have no need for 2 copies. The rules are a little hard to digest at first, but once you get the hang of the game, it is a lot of fun.

Condition: Still in shrink - no damage.

Good luck to you all!

OK, you done reading all that? This particular offer is for...



The king of old school fantasy board games. This is the black industries 4th edition version of the game, but I will track down a copy of the "upgrade pack" to include with the game so it will be compatible with the expansions produced by FFG. One of my absolute favorite games but I own the FFG version so this just sits on my shelf and collects dust.

Condition: opened and sorted, but never played.

Good luck and Happy Holidays!

ULTRA IMPORTANT EDIT

It has come to my attention that some of you are wary in giving out your address to me with no guarantee of receiving a prize. While I assure you, I will not use you address for any evil intentions, I can understand your concern. Therefore, I shall offer up this addendum:

1. If you want to enter and not send me your address, that is fine. I will contact you after the drawing IF you win, and send you your gift. I only ask that you do not post your success until after you receive said prize.

2. All contestants that do provide me with their address prior to the prize drawing will receive a Christmas Card from yours truly, with a personal message within, and a limited, one of a kind drawing made by my daughter Rilyn.

EDIT

I apologize for how long this is taking, I will not be drawing the winners until sometime tomorrow night. I just got done snowblowing my driveway and I am now inside, looking outside, watching it fill in again for the 5th time in the last 2 days. I am heading to the shower to combat the frostbite and then straight to bed.

For the time being - consider this offer OPEN and all tips will count until the drawing tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Closed!

New! In Shrink.

Entries: 1 GG = 1 Entry . Every 5 GG gets you an extra 2 Entries!
I will find the winner by some random method on the closing date.

Shipping: I will ship worldwide, for FREE! - Yup, you heard that right. All you worldwide geeks - enjoy!

I really enjoy this game - this is an EXTRA copy that I would like you to have.

Closing Date: December 10th, sometime that day.

This SHOULD get to anyone in the US (and probably everyone outside as well) before Christmas. If you want, I can send it to a friend/geekbuddy in Christmas wrapping paper, with your name on it. Heck, I could even send it to you in wrapping paper, so you could open another present on Christmas.


Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

Winner has been drawn - I will be sending this out later in the week, along with everyone's Christmas/Holiday/New Years cards!

Thank you all for your participation!

UndeadViking's SECRET CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAYS!

Happy Holidays to you all!!

IMPORTANT RULES BELOW! READ THEM BEFORE YOU TIP A SINGLE GEEK GOLD!

I am going to be offering up several items for the month of December, and all of them will follow these basic rules:

1. Enter as much as you want.

2. 1 GG = 1 entry, bonus entry for every 5 geek gold you tip.

3. Drawing will be on the 25th of December, when Santa lets me know who wins.

4. Shipping world wide is on me.

5. If you tip me even a SINGLE geek gold, you HAVE to geekmail me your address. This is important because...

6. When Santa lets me know who wins, I am not going to inform anyone other than Sol, our awesome benefactor. What this means is, you will not know whether or not you have won the contest until you get your package in the mail! Yes, I know you will get your gift after Christmas, but consider it a New Years present instead.

7. All gifts will be in wrapping paper, so if you enter more than one of my giveaways, you won't know which one you have won until you open it.

8. You will be expected to post on the entry after you receive your package, to let everyone know who won.

9. If for some reason, you would like the game to go to someone else as a gift, that is fine with me, just make sure you give me their name and address instead of yours. Also, let me know if you want them to know it was from you or not, and I will put that in the package. If you want it to go to someone else but you don't know their address, say, a geekbuddy here on BGG, I will track their info down for you if you want to remain anonymous.

10. Most of all, have fun and happy bidding.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask away. The above is subject to alteration if most of the community wants something altered. I am open to any and all suggestions.

Finally, I will be throwing odds and ends into each package - nothing major or anything, just random geeky junk I have lying around the house or stuff I have found in dollar stores.

OK, you done reading all that? This particular offer is for...



Yeah, it's the wood version, but it is still fully playable and in perfect condition. It also comes in that really small box making it the perfect travel game. Seriously, if you haven't played Hive, you do not know what you are missing. This is a favorite of my girlfriend, so thankfully I have 2 copies so she won't be mad that I gave it away.

Good Luck and Happy Holidays!

Up for Offer: Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot (Blue starter deck with yellow booster deck)

Condition: The game is opened but unplayed. Components are in excellent condition, but the box has minor shelf wear (afterall, this has made two moves with me already.)

Entries: One gets you one entry. Simple. Multiple entries allowed.

Shipping: I'll ship worldwide for free.

Auction Ends: Monday, December 14th, probably about 8am CST.

What's up for lottery?

This is the original print run for Adventurer: Card Game. It is the "Limited Edition" print run, as I got it straight from the designer at GTS 2008, before he had a distributor. Some of the cards were mis-sliced in the first run, so it isn't in the best shape. But it plays fine, and the cards aren't "marked" enough by the mis-cut to throw the game. The game has also been played quite frequently, so there is some "usage" on the cards, but nothing like M:tG cards from late 1993 before people realized there was value in that game.

I also have some bonus cards that Kevin Burgoine gave to me as a bonus when I got the game from him, including a neat little card designed by Gary Gygax before he passed.

When?

I will do the drawing sometime on December 15th, around noon, so that the winner can get the game before the Holiday.

How much to enter?

This is that standard "one entry for one " drawing with a single bonus entry for every 5 tipped.

How will I send it to you?

I will send the game anywhere in the world free of charge. Shipping is on me! Merry Christmas.

Any further tips will be spend on beer.

Once again the Copycat Awesome tool has spoken, and has chosen the winner. I know I promised to use jeromier's tool - but sol's tool can do some fantastic things, for example you can check the bidding here.

There were a total of 1 for this item:

Munchkin Wicked Dice & Bag

Congratulations Matt!
You seem to have a knack for winning unusual dice...


Set of six oversized Wicked Munchkin Dice and a matching Wicked Munchkin Bag, in perfect condition, although without the original blister pack.

The dice are used in-game as level counters, and there's six of them in this lot - so no player will feel left out (unless you want them to...)

As a bonus the set includes one Special Edition Wicked Christmas Munchkin Die, which is just as amazing as the normal Wicked Munchkin Dice, but red in color. That die can be used to make the other players feel inadequate (if you want to...)

You can see the whole lot in the picture below!



The Rules:

Shipping worldwide is free.

1 GG gets you one entry. Multiple entries allowed. Every 5 GG gives you a bonus entry.

This item will close on midnight December 27th, and as soon as I recover from the holidays, I will use the fabulous tool provided by jeromier to pick the winner.

Have fun and good luck!

Condition: New in shrink.
It’s been on my shelf a few years.
Doesn’t seem to be of interest to my game group…

Shipping will be free in the US, I will cover the first $10 worldwide.

(If the winner is international and some serious GG was placed on this,
then I will cover more, and see if we can keep the cost down.)

Entries:
1 per entry (tip this item, not the list...)
Every 5 tipped gives you a bonus entry (so 5 becomes 6)
No limit on how much a person can put in.

Closing Date: Friday, December 11th
(Sometime in the evening after I get home - tentatively 8pm EST)
This is now CLOSED

Draw Method / Notification:
Used Sol’s randomizer.
The winner will be announced promptly and a geekmail will be sent to him/her to obtain shipping address, etc.

Other: Will see if we can get this to its new home by the holidays.
Best wishes to all

Although outnumbered 471 to 1, Cedric the 18th has prevailed.
To recognize his blessing, he should build a great cathederal...

To all other contestants: Thanks for participating.

Time to find a way to fund my new habit of playing the lottery. This is my first entry, so I'll keep it simple:

Condition: Mostly new - been played twice. All parts are in tact and the box is in as-new condition.

Honestly, I like this game, but doesn't seem to be of interest to my game group or the wife. If I can't play it, why let it take up space when someone else could be enjoying it.

Shipping:
Shipping will be free in the US, I will cover the first $20 worldwide.

Entries:
1 geekgold per entry (tip this item, not the list...)
Every 5 geekgold tipped gives you a bonus entry (so 5 becomes 6)
No limit on how much a person can put in.

Closing Date: Monday, December 14th
(Sometime in the morning after I get to a computer)

Draw Method / Notification:
Will use Jeromier's tool.
The winner will be announced promptly and a geekmail will be sent to him/her to obtain shipping address, etc.

EDIT: We have a winner:

Sara Bernardo
United States
Franklin

Thanks to everyone that entered; you've allowed me to recycle so much of your that maybe I'll even win something. And, if not, at least Dos Rio finds a home with someone that will actually play it?
