Hiya all,

Last week I offered some sets of It's Alive!, Carpe Astra and Sumeria to some deserving games clubs around the world: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/485599/free-games-from-r...

Firstly, thanks to everyone who entered a games club they run or take part in. There are loads of deserving clubs out there, trying to bring gaming to the wider community and in a lot of cases going above and beyond the call of duty to help their communities and charities. You all deserve the free games

Sadly, I'm a small company and so I have to limit the number or games I give away or I'll go hungry

I had originally intended to give away around five sets, but the field was so good I've upped it to 11:

In the US: Berkeley Board Gamers, Columbus Area Boardgame Society, Mid South Strategic Board Game Club, North Coast Gamers, Southeastern Wisconsin Area Gamers (who deserve a special prize for best acronym) and St. Louis Boardgame Meetup.

In Europe:
Finnish Board Game Society (Finland), Spellbunker (Belgium) and Spielwiese Berlin (Germany)

Plus:
West Australia Boardgaming Association

I'll be contacting those groups shortly to arrange delivery of the free games.

Didn't win?
You can still get my games from either one of my stockists: http://www.reivergames.co.uk/stockists.php, or directly from my website: http://www.reivergames.co.uk/shop.php - free shipping is still available until the end of the month

Cheers,

Jack

Very nice gesture.

Somehow I missed the original thread - rats!

Good luck with ongoing sales however.

Seriously, I won.. I never win anything... Ok I didn't win, the group I represent won. But it's still cool none the less.

Thanks Jack and I'll make sure that they get plenty of play time!

I look forward to your email.

As organizer for the Berkeley Board Gamers, I would like to state that we are honored to have been chosen to receive copies of these games from Reiver Games.

I know there are large companies out there that send copies to game groups all the time, but it's nice to make a real connection between the players and the smaller-sized hard working designers/producers in a way that a venue like Board Game Geek could only provide.

It was great to see all the vital game groups out there sound off in one thread about how great they are and why they deserve to have more games to play. It was a neat and visible way to promote the games and our groups here on the Geek, so that some interested gamer out there might find an opportunity to attend a group and play one of Reiver Games's releases.

I need to say thanks to my fellow organizer Brad Goodson for alerting our group to this thread and to one of our fine members Shanthi Gonzales for taking the initiative to post and plead our cause. Thanks Shanthi and Brad! And thank you Jack and Reiver Games!

(Either I or Shanthi should be contacting you soon with an address for shipping.)

Yes, as Timothy already pointed out I am a member of the St. Louis Boardgames Meetup group. I was also a playtester for Sumeria, so that game has already gotten some exposure here 8).

The Columbus Area Boardgaming Society thanks you very much for your great contribution ... It is refreshing as it has been stated above that a company seeks to put games into the hands of their fans through the club system. The number of fans for your games will no doubt increase tremendously through your actions such as this. Congratulations to all! Thanks again.

On behalf of everyone at the West Australian Boardgaming Association.

Thank You

This is a slightly larger thank you than the earlier ones, as we really appreciate your selecting us and sending the games to the back-end-of-nowhere!

When the games arrive you can be sure that we'll be making sure they get plenty of table time with gamers who haven't played these titles before.

Congratulations to all the winners and a rousing 'Hurrah' for Jack!

I just received my copy of Carpe Astra which I picked up after seeing this offer. I'll have to BART over to Berkeley soon to play the rest of your lineup.

Good luck growing your company!

Hiya Everyone,

Thanks to everyone who have said nice things about me

I've been a member of a few great games groups in my time, and I know how important they are as a way to experience new games and get new people into the hobby. I'm delighted to be able to support a few more clubs.

Thanks also to everyone who bought copies of my games off the back of this offer

Cheers,

Jack

Hiya Jack,

To say thanks for the offer I too ordered a copy of It's Alive!

I look forward to playing it with my family and the club and will have a review up in a month or two.

Trust me, as a proud founding member of SWAG, the opportunity did not go unnoticed... just untouched.
