WOW! I DIDN'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO EXPECT, BUT I DIDN'T EXPECT THIS OVERWHELMING RESPONSE. IF I MISSED A THUMB I APOLOGIZE, MY BABY BOYZ ARE A HAND-FULL. ALL POSTERS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED, EXCLUDING MY PERSONAL FRIEND. ONLY ONE ENTRY HAS BEEN INCLUDED PER PERSON, REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY POSTS THAT PERSON MADE.

THANKS TO THOSE OF YOU GENEROUS WITH GG.

I'VE READ EVERY RESPONSE AND HAVE AN EVEN BETTER APPRECIATION FOR BGG THAN I DID BEFORE I BEGAN THIS LITTLE GIVEAWAY.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL. MY TWO YEAR OLD WILL DRAW THE WINNER ON SATURDAY MORNING.

Here we go. I apologize to any proponents of hats out there, but I used a bowl.

The stage was set:

YOU WANT 'EM
THEY GOT 'EM
AND I'LL PAY FOR 'EM

To celebrate one year on the Geek, I'll randomly pick someone and give them one $100 gift cert to CoolStuff.com. http://www.coolstuffinc.com/
The $100 will also get you free shipping from them in the lower 48.

I have really enjoyed the Geek this past 12 months. You zany chit chatters, those RSPers who think their s*&# doesn't stink, the ones that know it does and fling it around their cages with reckless abandon, and the rest.

I've met some great people and look forward to meeting more of you through BGG. My love of the hobby has grown with the help of the Geek and that was only possible because of the contributions of all of you, the user. So here's your chance for a reward.

Post anything here. Introduce yourself, something about BGG, your gaming experience, whatever, and I'll throw your name into the hat for a chance to win. If you're new to BGG, stop lurking and jump in with both feet. If the economy has hit you hard, post a response. Come one, come all.

One entry per user, please. I'll stop taking entries around 11:59 pm Friday, August 7th (if the newborn cooperates) and post the winner Saturday the 8th (when the toddler and newborn allow).

After the winner is announced I'll PM you to get your e-mail address and get the gift cert to you.




edit:I apologize for putting this in late, but free shipping is for the lower 48 states. Sorry for pulling the ole bait n switch. For those of you outside of the U.S. here is a list of countries CoolStuff ships to. http://www.CoolStuffInc.com/main_shipToCountries.php

You're more than welcome to post, but you're on your own for shipping if you're outside of the lower 48. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Re: $100 gift certificate giveaway!
Thanks sooooooooooooo much for this!!

Congratulations on your 1st year!!!

My first year was up in March of this year!

Introduction:
Mrs. Mystery Bob, female geek, with non-gaming spouse/husband (actually he is addicted to Kongregate and the like). My 8-year old daughter will play anything with me but does not have much of an attention span and/or is not a challenging opponent for me!!

Regular in Chit Chat & Recommendations forums and lurker in RSP. I have posted reviews and session reports, uploaded images and created files (my favorite!). I also thrift for games--not very successfully, but it's fun!!!

Thanks again and good luck to all participants!

This very generous of you. My name is also John and I am addicted to BGG so much that my work has blocked it and I can only access at home. Luckily I live with another BGG member so no conflict at home.

I'm in, thanks!

I live in my mom's basement and I'm unemployed, but on the internet I'm a military guy deployed to Afghanistan.

I'm a Chit Chatter and a RSPer and I rarely venture out of those forums except to research what games to buy next.

Your mother is a very nice lady.

That is all.

The best part of the Geek is there are people willing to do something like this, and people like this far outnumber the jerks.

Thanks for sticking around for a year and not being a jerk. Keep it up

What a kind and generous offer! I'll throw my hat in the ring.

I've become a more avid boardgamer in the last few years...before that it was always RPG's and Magic. I still play D & D once or twice a month.

Some of you may recognize my name from my multiple and sometimes obnoxious postings about the Spring and Fall Gaming Hooplas; which are charity conventions that friends and I run and from which all proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society. Our web site is www.gaminghoopla.com.

Thanks for this great contest; good luck to all (but slightly more luck to me!)

Re: $100 gift certificate giveaway!
Hi and Congratz on your first year at the Geek. Welcome to your new addiction home.

I am Cory and I am a huge addict for BGG. I am on here as often as I can. I have so many games subscribed to that there is always something for me to read.

This site alone is the reason why I got into gaming. I was always a fan of board games as a kid, but they never were that intriguing as many of the games on here are.

I hope you stay on the Geek for many years to come.

Good luck to everyone!

Re: $100 gift certificate giveaway!
WOW! Kudos!

What an incredibly generous gesture, and I *love* coolstuffinc, probably my go-to vendor these days.

I started on the geek a couple years back, and, like you, my gaming has increased tenfold. I used to play a lot of rpgs; actually, pretty much only rpgs, since the early eighties. I sort of scoffed at boardgames as being somehow less important or neat. I missed out on a LOT of good games, I think, but the roleplaying games were great fun.

Then I happened across BGG and Carcassonne (I don't remember which order, but I think Carcassonne was first by a couple of hours) and the rest is history. My weekly rpg group now plays boardgames, and we haven't missed a Tuesday night in over a year!

Right now we are enjoying Snow Tails, Arkham Horror and Agricola, but we've played tons of different games!

I look forward to Tuesday night with my gaming friends and family each and every week. It's that sweet spot in the week, that one event, that I can count on to bring my spirits up.

We usually start the evening by playing Go Away Monster! or The Ladybug Game with my two year old Molly (so much fun!). Every morning Molly asks to "play dice" on my iPhone, and she usually asks to "play real dice" with the dice tower...

The community here at the geek has reminded me that there's good people all over the place, even on the internet. After spending years at places like rpg.net and the like, I was pretty jaded regarding content and the bahavior of other posters. But at The Geek I found a community of hobbyists and professionals and n00bs that took care of each other and helped one another. Wow.

In any case, I'm glad you are getting out of The Geek what I have gotten, and what countless others are getting all the time!

Congratulations, and, again, thank you for coming up with such a fun and generous contest!

Game on!

Re: $100 gift certificate giveaway!
Very Generous!!!

I got some money for my B-day almost a month ago to use on a game I've been eye-balling for a good while now, Galaxy Trucker. I've had a habit of only buying games when my buddies get together for a free shipping order... problem is, I recently moved and have no one locally to split the order with. The idea of paying shipping seems excessive to me now.

So here I sit and wait: Too cheap to pay shipping, but several months of nickel scraping away from qualifying for that 'big' order. All the while, I sit and re-read the .pdf rulebook thinking how fun it would be to get destroyed by an unassuming asteroid.

Well, throw my name in the hat! Maybe I'll get lucky and have one less thing to occupy my mind.

Here's to another great year!!

Very generous!

This is also my 1 year anniversary, of being out of work. Great anniversary to celebrate, eh?

I spend A LOT of time on the 'geek, more so than in the past. Participated in my first math trade this year, as well as some other trades. Haven't bought a new game in over 1 year, so I'm itching for it.

Congratulations on lasting a year here

I'm a geek regular, though I lurk more than I contribute. I do play Tigris and Euphrates and Werewolf here, however. I hardly go anywhere else on the 'net anymore. This is a great community.

Thanks for the generous contest. I feel good just knowing someone is going to be so thrilled to win.

That's quite generous, thanks. I've been participating in this site since the inception. It's cost me more money in games but the entertainment value is priceless.

Happy 1st anniversary! I believe that's the "paper" (or cardboard) anniversary...

So great of you to do this.

I'm a newcomer as well, and as it has for you, BGG has been such a help in directing and flourishing this hobby.
I'm about to drive 160 miles to introduce some friends to Agricola.

Congrats to the future winner!
