If anyone found a purple drawstring bag with about 100 purple poker chips in it with werewolf roles on it I would pay for shipping if you were willing to send them back to me. The chips didn't cost much but it took quite a bit of time and effort to turn them into werewolf roles so I thought I would see if anyone found them before spending the time to make another set.

I'll pay for shipping them back to her and add 100 GG on top of that.

But listen again. Is it really the wind, or is it the sound of somebody running one step ahead of the dark?

Call the hotel and ask for lost & found. I just called to get my left behind coat. They said they had about 30 items that had been turned in. They will ship with credit card info.

Oh no! I saw them, but unfortunately didn't grab them myself -- I wasn't sure who they actually belonged to or how I'd go about returning them in a timely manner, so opted to leave them alone hoping the owner would come back and snag 'em. I saw them on one of the tables right outside the elevators (next to the Leadership Wing entrance). Sorry I didn't grab them - hope they turn up!

I think the GG reward is plenty high, so let me add this: I'll Paypal (or otherwise electronic-send) a $20 reward for the chips. They were awesome and meaningful to the WW community, and I'd hate to see them be lost forever.

I tried them before I left the hotel but it won't hurt to try them again. Thanks!

Just double checked with security and they do not have it. He said most of the stuff found was in rooms and not in the main areas. He did take my name and number in case they turn up though.

Thank you everyone! I feel a little silly because they didn't cost much at all. But they are time and effort and most importantly now, lots of memories.

.

These are not the original poker chips. These are chips Tarrant made to replace the ones that were lost. Not only that, he made an extra set just for 7/9/11 player games.

Tarrant in the note you told me that you didn't want my memories of BGG con spoiled with "but that was the year that this happened". I assure you my memories are anything but spoiled. I have many wonderful times hidden inside my head that I can bring out anytime I need some happy thoughts and you have just added one more to that supply.

You also said that you know there is no way these could replace ones that I put my own energy and time into making. You are right, these don't replace those. These chips surpass the originals. The original ones were my own time and effort and memories but they were just mine. This set is imbued with the friendship and caring you have shown by making them for me. They will still recall all of the memories that I had playing with everyone at the con. And because of those memories and that friendship they belong to all of the con wwers. I will make sure they show up next year and hopefully every year after that.

Thank you Tarrant. You are truly a great friend and I am so happy to be able to count you among mine.
