Welcome everyone to the November 2011 Edition of the GeekGold for Game Lottery.

As you can see this month list took quite a while to be publish, this year has been chaotic and hectic, and until the redesign is finished it will be like this for a while unfortunately. So, to allow me time to do all, please, draw all the items after November 15th.

These are the Rules

Who can participate?
Everyone can take part of the system, with the following exceptions: new users cannot list items unless they are a patron.

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, and if there are bonus for multiple geekgold bid.
3. The bid is binding. Which means that once you bid the item it is assumed that you read the entry completely, understood and therefore want to take part of the drawing. The lister doesn't have an obligation to give your tip back although most won't have an issue. If for some reason an user withdraws from a lottery and should not be chosen as an winner, the lister should contact me to have his name ignored.

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 Board Games, Video Games, RPGs, and related items. You cannot make a lottery for Geekgold or something completely unrelated the main entry, although these types of item can be added as bonus or as second winners. You can put gift cards as long as it is for an store related with the domains (i.e. no gift card to a convenience or department store allowed, but one for steam, funagain, drivethru rpg, etc can be raffled).
6. Always link to the correct item on the database. So if you are auctioning the Video Game version of Puerto Rico link to Puerto Rico and not to Puerto Rico.
7. To guarantee that the item will appear on the subscription page, allow for at least 1 week between listing and drawing.
8. Miscellaneous game entries, like FIMO miniatures, pimp items, etc should be added using Miscellaneous Game Accessory, Miscellaneous Miniatures Game Accessory or Miscellaneous Card Game Accessory as appropriate.
9. The item must be draw between November 1st, 2011 and November 30th, 2011

Specific rules for types of item
1. For board games, contact me before adding homemade versions of non-Print and Play games.
2. For RPGs remember that the spirit of these lotteries is one of fairness. So, make sure that if you offer a PDF version of a given book, that you have the right to resell it, put on the item that it is indeed a PDF. Personal scans, illegal digital copies and xerox of books are not permitted.
3. For video games, no pirated or bootleg version is allowed. Remember that some online versions have pretty strict rules on what you can do with your copy. So when offering a game, make sure that you indeed can transfer the full ownership of it to the user. In case a new potential user would have some restriction with the new game, like not been allowed to access official online serves, add this information to the post.
4. If you are in some way connected with the item in question, either as a publisher or as a designer, contact me before posting any such item. And send me the wording you intend for the entry.

What to do when the lottery ends?
1. When closed, use the Copycat Awesome Tool to select an winner.
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 don't delete them.

How to use the Copycat Awesome tool?
1. Go to Copycat Awesome Tool;
2. Use your BGG login and password to log into the tool. The password is not kept by it, but it is sent directly to BGG for authentication.
3. On the Home Page of the tool there is a list with all of your listed items, just click on the correct one;
3.1 Optionally go to Items->Check Item and type the unique id for your item. To get the number right click the Postdate on the geekitem and check the #itemid part, that is the id;
4. Once you are on the item page, click the Roll Item button. The button will appear on the beginning of the date you want the drawing, as seen by the server (the server is located at the GMT-4 timezone)
5. The next page will have the name(s) of the winner(s) and a block of text you can copy to post on the tool if you want.

What should I do if the tool is incorrect?
Part of the tool is updated manually by me. The drawing date, number of winners, bonus and rules, are added by me on the tool based on what is written on the item. I usually do an update a week, so after I do that your item should correctly appear on the tool.
Before you draw check if the item is correct. Check the number of winners that are activated, the amount of geekgold tipped, and if the rules are correct. In case there is any problems, contact me before rolling the item. I will fix the issue and contact you back so you can roll the item.

I want to use a different bonus structure, can I?
The answer is maybe. The tool is vary powerful and customizable but some things it can't do. By default, anything dealing with other items can't be done easily, nor can anything that is not a mathematical change on the geekgold. It is possible though to add special rules to items, so contact me before listing the item so I can tell you if it is possible. In the case the tool can't do it and I can't add,you can't use.

I think there is something wrong on an item, what should I do?
If you suspect that something is wrong with any item on the lottery, please contact me by GeekMail explaining which behavior you saw that got you suspicious. If you won an item and the lister is logging but not contacting you, or has disappeared from BGG contact me as soon as possible. If the item should have arrived already but hasn't and the lister is not being cooperative or answering your inquires, also contact me so we can solve this in a timely manner.

Can I tip back people who tipped me?
Yes, you can use the GeekGold any user tipped you to tip on one of his items for lottery, but with discretion. You are not allowed to enter in collusion with an user to circle tip each other to get your chances very high. Doing so will remove both from the lotteries and take the geekgold incurred during it. Simple getting a tip and tipping back is not a problem. If you realize that there is an item one user has that you really want, and he really wants one of yours. Propose a trade (users are encouraged to add, before listing, items they want to lottery off on their Trade list), and if it goes through you reimburse the geekgold of every other participant.

Additional rules and guidelines
1. Don't update more than once a day;
2. Editing for the sake of trying to attract people is bad behavior. Doing it everyday (countdown to draw) is even worst. When an entry is updated I go check it to see if I have to change anything on the tool entry for it, and when there are half the items with updates, that can be a bit difficult;
3.Posting on the Game Forums or on the General Gaming forums and GeekMailing users about the offers your put on the lotteries is considered spam and should not be done. We have a very high profile subscription thread on the GeekBay forums, which should take care of adding visibility. Rare will be the user that wants to take part but doesn't know already about it.
4. You cannot reserve a spot on the geeklist by adding a TBA announced post while waiting to post latter, just to have an earlier place.

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.

Special Note #3: This is more a personal request, please try to avoid over complicated bonus schemes and shipping thresholds. Although I understand and find it funny when an user goes with 10 different levels of free shipping with some countries here and there, I have to update this info manually on the tool for it to show on the update, and that delays the subscription update (a simple listing takes 10 sec, a more complicated can take up to 2 minutes)

Mystery box to end all mystery boxes...

OK - this is a giant mystery box full of games, RPG stuff, and other geekiness. Mind you, the stuff in here is NOT awesome. You are not going to find things in here that were ever on the hotness scale, or ranked in the 400, let alone 100. What you will find is 10+ board/card games, some original artwork from my daughter, and little to NO packaging peanuts because I have crammed every inch of the box full of stuff. Things WILL get damaged in transit - but the crappy stuff is on the outside, so you probably won't care. Then again the whole box is kinda crappy, so they could feed it through a cement mixer before it got to you and you wouldn't care.

As promised...a picture...



Cat will NOT be included

The dimensions of the box are 20"x15"x15" - a little smaller than I thought. More accurate weight is around 25 lbs, but I am still cramming stuff into it.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Drawing: November 30th when I remember

Shipping: Free if you are in the continental US. If you are outside of the US (or in Hawaii or Alaska), there is no way I can afford to send this. If you want to bid, go look at USPS.com and figure out how much shipping from zip code 56560 will cost you when the package is 30 lbs. If after that you still want to bid, you are either going to have to foot the bill for shipping or we will have to figure something out.

Bonus entries: It has been awhile, let's do something crazy. One bonus entry every 10 GG tipped.

My love: Goes out to you all

Thanks in advance for your hard earned GG - and good luck to you all.

Thanks for your interest!

I was reviewing the contents...a game in the top 500 made it in!

If that doesn't get a few more GG from you miserly people I don't know what will.

I'm sorry, I cannot read this site regularly while the intense white background is in effect. I have eye health issues, and this is painful. I'll still make brief visits, largely for trades and rules questions, but my socializing here is done for now

Card Game Extravaganza!

How about some actual games on this geeklist?

We'll start with Coloretto (Rio Grande English edition)

Every 250GG earned will add another card game. But, to retain the air of mystery, I'm not going to tell you what they are! None of them are complete duds, I promise, and you could probably work out what they are by having a look at my collection.

Added special HilkMAN bonus: A copy of Eco-Fluxx if we get to 600GG!

250GG Reached! Added Masquerade



500GG Reached! Added Canal Grande



600GG Reached! Added Eco Fluxx



750GG Reached! Added Fzzzt!



Standard tipping - 1 entry per GG with a bonus entry for every 5GG.

Free shipping worldwide.

Drawing: 27th November

Panic Station Plus Promo Cards

I picked up two copies of this at Essen, both pre-ordered. This of course means one lucky person gets to win the 'spare' copy. It includes the promo cards still in cellophane wrapping. This sold out at Essen and having played it I fully appreciate why.

Condition: Brand new in shrink
Version: White Goblin games. Not sure what or if there are any differences between this one and the Stronghold one. This comes in a nice metal box.
Bonuses: Keeping it simple. 1 = 1 chance to win. Every 5 = 1 extra chance at the prize.

Draw Date: 26th November seems entirely reasonable.
Shipping costs are on me where ever you are and who ever you are.

Enjoy!

Eaten by Zombies

I preordered this but for some reason didn't qualify for the promo cards yuk Having played a friends copy I wasn't overly impressed and so am putting this up for auction. This sold out at Essen.

Condition: The shrink is off the box to permit Max the games designer to sign it. The cards themselves are still sealed.

Version: Presumably first edition.
Bonuses: Keeping it simple. 1 = 1 chance to win. Every 5 = 1 extra chance at the prize.

Draw Date: 26th November
Shipping costs are on me where ever you are and who ever you are.

Item: Hive (base game, no expansions)

Condition: box not perfect. But the game (and its bag) are of course okay)

Rules: in German and French.

Shipping: on me.

Tool: Hopefully Sols tool, if I encounter problems, then an Excel sheet and a random number generator

How to tip: One geekgold gives you one entry. Tip as often as you like.

Drawing: 28th of November*


I do have to downsize my collection, and thus will offer many games on here November sale. Full Metal Planet, Blütezeit, Villa Paletti, Genesis... (10% of my earnings will be donated to the Deutsche Krebshilfe 3% to the BGG). Not everbody has money though, and thus my copy of Hive will go to someone lucky, somewhere in the world. For free.
A laugh is more valuable than anything else.

I lowered a lot of starting prices in my geeklist of games to sell for the last days of the auction!

*I promise that there will be no long hold up this time around, and hope that the game will arrive in time for Christmas.

This is a for the Players Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide for Ad&D 2nd edition.

I'm playing 3rd ed these days and so I am planning on slowly liquidating my 1st and 2nd ed books. This is the first lot.

The DMG shows some cover wear and corner damage. The pages inside are pristine. The PHB has much more cover wear and the corners are also worse. The pages inside show a little more use than the DMG and there are some pencil marks on the equipment tables.



ENTRIES:
1 = 1 Entry
10 = 15 Entries
50 = 100 Entries

SHIPPING: Winner pays unless we get over 250 bag then I will pay domestic (US) shipping.

DRAW DATE: November 21st

I don't have the boiler plate from the roll screen but he tipped 10 and had a 1.93% chance of winning

Check the roll at http://www.domusmagnasolaris.com/gfgtool/rolls/check?roll_id...


Not for the game Take Your Pick: Qrazy Quandaries

but this is a listing for a game from the following.

Winner gets to choose either

Gloom

or

What's My Word?

or

Carcassonne: The Castle

The Gloom set has been played just a few times. The tuck box is worn as it wasn't super sturdy but the cards inside are in great shape.

The What's My Word is the Griffon games 2010 edition. It has been opened but never played.

The Carcassone: The Castle set has been played a few times. Minor shelf ware on the box.

Draw date November 30th evening EST
1 = 1 entry
5 = 7 entries

Free World Wide Shipping via USPS.

If this reaches 500 I will songify (see autotune the news) a short text paragraph of the winner's choice and email the resulting song file. I do not promise it will be good or even something you want to listen to but I will try my best.

500 reached! Time to limber up the old pipes ehem . . .

do-ra-me-fa-so-la ti FAIL!! I am really bad at singing but autotune will turn me into a T-Pain super star


Edit: added images don't want people to think they have to get Qrazy Quandaries

Edit: Just realized I didn't specify Sol's Tool to draw, but of course it will be. Sorry I missed that.[/size]

First Prize = $60 game of your choice
Second Prize = $50 game of your choice

Third Prize = ???
Fourth Prize = ???
etc...


The Preamble
With only XX days to go 'til christmas (insert your own number here lest Sol kills me for updating daily) all good geeks (and you lot) should be composing wishlists ready for Santa. However, Christmas is still XX days away, and that is quite a while to wait for a shiny new game. So what to do? Enter this lottery and win yourself something to play while you wait for the man with the most famous beard of them all!

The Prizes
There will be 1 winner for every 2000GG tipped, with a minimum of two winners. Each winner will be bought a game worth around $50 (inc shipping). I will add more prizes as the GG tipped increases. The more people tip, the more prizes there will be. The winner will be able to choose which game they would like. If they wish to delay this decision to see what Santa (secret or otherwise) brings them, that will be fine as well. Each entrant can only win one prize.

The First Prize starts off at $50 inc shipping. This will increase by $10 for every 2500GG tipped. All subsequent prizes will be worth $50. I will keep the top of this post up-to-date with the number and value of prizes available.

Bonus Structure
1 = 1 Entry
10 = 12 Entries
100 = 140 Entries
1000 = 1600 Entries

Bonus Prizes
If you have tipped 25GG or more to this item, post a comment below, and make a geekroll of a D20. Once the main prizes have been drawn, I will also make a roll of a D20. If my roll matches yours, you will be refunded 10% of your GG bid. If you roll a nat 13, you will win 5GG straight away.

Whoever tips me to take me over the 20,000 collected threshold will win 10

Draw Date
24 Nov (My daughter's birthday) sometime once she has gone to bed.

Shipping
Included in the prize amount.

Good luck to you all - let's see how many happy gamers we can make!

EDIT 1: First Prize now $60

To start off, we have this expansion for Fits. It is printed on cardstock, and fits right into the plastic base!

Once this hits 150 GG, I'll throw in:
FITS Expansion #1: MOTS – More Of The Same


And once it hits 300 GG, this expansion will get added:
FITS Expansion #2: LOTS – Letters On The Spaces


And you guessed it, once it hits 450 GG, this one will be yours.
FITS Expansion #3: BOTS – Big Obnoxious Terrible Spaces




And as usual, Free shipping worldwide, once it hits 1 GG!


GG Entries:
1 GG = 1 Entry
5 GG = 7 Entries
20 GG = 40 Entries


Ends:

November 9th


And I'll just toss in the last expansion for the winner (even though the total wasn't reached):

Eighth round of the "HilkMAN needs to get rid of a bunch of games"-lottery

Here are the remains of my previous months' lotteries. All games are the editions pictured, unless stated otherwise - if you are not sure, please ask. I am fully planning to add some more games to this entry later, depending on my time, so stay tuned, even if you don't see anything just yet.

Choose four (six) five (seven) seven (nine) eight (ten) points worth of games from the list below. A winner from Germany can choose an extra two points worth of games to reflect the lower shipping costs for me. I am very open to negotiation. If the total reached doesn't get you the games you want, you can fill up to the level you need. Or you throw in some money for the shipping cost. Ask if you're not sure whether this is for you. I mainly just want to get rid of these games without going broke.

If this lottery reaches 500 , choose five points worth of games - ACHIEVED!
If this lottery reaches 600 , choose six points worth of games - PULVERIZED!
If this lottery reaches 700 , choose seven points worth of games - PONIFIED!
If this lottery reaches 800 , choose eight points worth of games - DONE!
If this lottery reaches 900 , choose nine points worth of games
If this lottery reaches 1000 , choose ten points worth of games
I will continue the progression in some way or the other if it really goes beyond that.

Shipping is on me, worldwide
. I will do the drawing on (or shortly after) the 23th 28th of November. Due to some unforeseen stupidity from my part I will have to postpone drawing this until next Monday. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

1 gets you 1 entry.
5 get you 6 entries
25 get you 35 entries
100 get you 150 entries
There is no limit on bids.

Here's the game list:

Zero point game (meaning I will add this for free if the winner is interested)

Wie verhext!: Der brodelnde Theriak (a bit messed up, but the part of the postcard with the actual cards still looks quite fine)


One point games

Grand Cru: Heuriger und gemischter Satz Essen 2010 giveaway, new.
Taste Taiwan: Warrior New.
KNOTZ! Essen 2010 giveaway, new (there are some marks that look like "shelf wear" or something, but they are print irregularities)


Lao Pengh Played once, excellent condition
Wizard Extreme: Revolution promo card Essen 2010 giveaway, new. In German.
The Pillars of the Earth: New Craftsmen New, in shrink.


Two point games

The City Played once, like new.
Schwarz Rot Gelb Box shows minimal shelf wear, cards are still in shrink.
Wizard Junior Out of shrink, but like new (unpunched, actually)
Zatre: Das Kartenspiel Lightly used (a few sheets of the scoring pad have been used), very good condition
Munchkinomicon New.
Quirrly Played once. Like new condition.



Man Bites Dog Very good condition.
Uuups Played once, excellent condition
Iain Banks: The Player of Games. Well read. Looks very used, so this is for reading, not for looking great. Photos on request.
The Dog's Meow Played once, like new condition.
Dream Team The tuckbox it came in hasn't aged too well. The components are like new.


Montanara Played a bunch of times, but still in very good condition.
Nmbrs! Played once. Minimal shelf wear, components like new.
LigrettoThe box is so messed up I won't even send it. Cards are in shrink. Not the edition pictured! The box is blue and from Schmidt Spiele; rules are in German, English, French and Italian.
Dots Gamewright Quarx edition (thick box). Played once, minimal shelf-wear, components like new.
The Warrior-Lords of Darok Let's call this one intact, but it really shows its age. Looks like it's been moved around a lot since 1982. There are also two price stickers on it.
Wizards' Realm This one is worse off than the Darok thing - really, really used. I will add a photo when I have time.

Three point games

Agricola Euchre from Lookout gamse. Rules (German) have been read, cards are in shrink.
Halli Galli Wendy edition. In shrink.
Typo Not exactly the edition in the picture, but looks similar (English version). Decent condition, but played repeatedly and some shelf wear.


Four point games

Herr der Ziegen Box shows some shelf wear. Components still look great. Played only twice or so.
Alchemist Box shows some shelf wear. Components are like new. Played maybe twice or three times.
The Bucket King Box shows some shelf wear, components still look great.
Fiji Minor shelf wear - very good condition (the image for this edition looks very yellow - the game itself doesn't).
Zombie Fluxx Played once or twice; like new condition.
Wooly Wars The box is in alright condition, the components in great condition.



Dune Express Played once, in very good condition. Made by Andrew (howitzer), so you know it's good.
Enkounter Good condition. Meaning that the box has a few little dents, but the game pieces, instructions etc. still look excellent.)
Sabotage In just acceptable condition. This is an old library copy; it has some labels sticking on the pack and the rules are just a photocopy. The actual game components are in decent condition.
Corda. Very much shelf wear, some surface tear on the back of the box. The components are in good condition.


Edit 1: Added Enkounter, Wizard Junior and The Player of Games to the lot. There should be more, but I don't know when I will have time to check and add it. Stay tuned.


Edit 2: Added Dune Express to make this pick up some speed. I am planning to add Herr der Ziegen, Alchemist, Alles im Eimer, Man Bites Dog, Uups and 23 and maybe more at some later point when I have time - if I don't, these can be negotiated into the deal anyway.

Edit 3: Added Schwarz Rot Gelb, Man Bites Dog, Uuups!, Montanara, Herr der Ziegen, Alchemist and Alles im Eimer. There might be more to come. Stay tuned.

Edit 4/5: Postponed draw date till the 28th, added The City. First threshold crossed. Thanks!

Edit 6: Wow, suddenly interest is rising. Thanks! Third threshold galloped over.


Edit 7: Another threshold crossed..

Kosmos German edition, language neutral and English rules widely available.

Excellent condition, maybe a tiny bit of shelf wear, but you wouldn't complain.

1GG per entry, 5GG for 6 entries, as per normal.

Shipping: I'd like to be generous, but it is a big box, and I'm out of a job at the minute. I would appreciate a 50-50 shipping contribution (or better), but I emphasise it is entirely on a voluntary basis. Likely cost for small-packet shipping will be $25/EUR15, so it shouldn't break the bank.

Closing: 27th November

Tip this item and you've got the chance to have that warm feeling of helping someone get a game published.

up to $50 to back kickstarter boardgame or RPG project(s)

Have you heard of this kickstarter thing? Of course you have, everyone's doing it. I started a kickstarter to finance a school for ants and also a project to make jet packs for dogs. (Not really)

How does this relate to games you say? Well besides artists projects and bands financing tours, an increasing number of publishers and designers have been putting their board games or RPGs up for public funding through the site.

I'm offering to back a boardgame or RPG project in your name with an amount up to $50
