A while back, user happyboy started a raffle for a copy of Elfenroads to help raise money for his cancer run. A few other users jumped in to offer prizes to ticket buyers. My contribution was a geekgold prize. With the help of Aldie and the BGG community, that prize grew to over 2,000 geekgold! After Ron selected winners and I sent the geekgold out into the ether, I received a gift from the winner of 200 geekgold. While I appreciate his gift, it's a bit of an embarrassment of riches as that money was entirely meant to go to a raffle prize winner. So, I've decided that I should give it away to hard working geeks that deserve it and not squander it on used copy of Tichu.


Here's how to qualify to receive your geekgold. If you bought a raffle ticket and didn't win anything from Ron's Raffle Ticket Drive, post a comment below asking for either a microbadge, an avatar, or some lesser amount of geekgold. Or, if you didn't buy a raffle ticket, you can Donate Here to cancer research, once you've done that, I'll send you some geekgold.

This offer is first come, first serve, until I give away that 200 geekgold. Thanks for all of your support and, please, continue to donate to cancer research!

Hi,

I bought a raffle ticket. I also donated some geek gold. Can you send me just one geek gold. I'd like to have an entry of it somewhere.

Oo! I'd be keen on a free microbadge. I'm not sure which one yet. Torn between Game Design Hobbyist, Terry Pratchett fan or maybe a music one.

I made a contribution first off and any sort of prize was totally irrelevant. Sure it would have been nice to win something, but I was more than pleased that my meagre contribution was going to a worthwhile cause.

I also think that there are a number of far more deserving recipients of some spare GG than me, but if, AND ONLY IF, you wish to distribute largesse further afield I will happily take a microbadge. I do find the Pastaferian badge hilarious, although I should make reference to father of two hulking sons or Avalon Hill fan etc. etc.

Great gesture Mendon.

Hi, I participated in the fundraiser and got nothing but warm fuzzies.

I wouldn't mind a microbadge as (hopefully within the next couple months) I'll need to replace my "Father of one boy" badge with "Father of XX" where XX is either two boys, two boys and one girl, one boy and one girl, or one boy and two girls (we're adopting and open to twins if at least one is a girl, so we don't know what we're getting yet ). But, you know, gotta keep that thing current

I lost my younger brother to cancer (Osteo Sarcoma) last September. He was 22. I donated, Geek Gold or not. Best of luck to the patient.

Hey, that's a good idea, Angelo. I didn't win anything or get any GG, so just 1 would give me a record of this whole drive.

You now have 2 records as I gave a tip to your post in the Elfenroads fundraiser thread.

Cheers,
Mendon
P.s. do you want an avatar? I still have some left.

Hi Mendon,

Muy cool of you to keep the flowing like this. I was in the Raffle Ticket Drive, but didn't win. I've managed to get up to geekbadge, but would really like a little something to help me toward an ubercool, uberbadge--if you can spare it.

Ciao, eh.

No problem, Tommy. Though, I do have to admit, I've always like having just a geekbadge more than and ubergeek-badge. maybe it's about where the hyphen goes?

I donated for 5 raffle tickets and didn't win anything. Which is just fine because it is a good cause. But if you're still handing out gold, I'd like enough for a microbadge (Bruno Faidutti) or maybe even an avatar. I don't have either.

I'm pretty sure I donated to that one, but don't recall for sure. Is there an easy way to check? And if I did, I could always use another microbadge. Or even just 5gg, so you can spread the love out more.

As of this post, I am officially geekgold broke! Thank you, everyone, who has donated to cancer research. Please continue to do so in the future!

EDIT: We're back in business! I've got another 100 geekgold shining a hole in my pocket!!!

I snuck in under the wire and mdornbrook handed me a bag with 30 so I went and bought myself an avatar.

Isn't it pretty?

I'd better get started learning how to write reviews, session reports, and snap pictures so I can get some microbadges.

Thank you, mdornbrook!

PS: In my few short weeks on the Geek, I've noticed that compared to many, many other web sites, this place is fun, friendly, and often quite intelligent. And there are some very kind people. thumbsupthumbsupthumbsup
