For example, the winning bidder on Item #317 would send a GeekMail with the subject line of "Bidder 317." In the body of the GeekMail I'll need your legal name, physical address, and a non-BGG email address. I will email you back a receipt.


It’s finally time for the annual Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction!
The auction will run from November 1, 2012 (12:01 EST) to November 18, 2012 (11:59 EST).

What is the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund?

One tragic event and two acts of generosity brought the BGG community together: the result was the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund. In January 2011, Cate Pfeifer (Cate108) posted an auction for Tom Vasel and his family to help with the unfortunate loss of his son, Jack. The generosity of the BGG community was amazing. Tom was touched and wanted to pay the kindness forward so he created the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund. He used some of the money that BGGers donated and spent to build this fund. The fund is a not-for-profit with a simple goal: raising and distributing funds to help gamers in their hour of need.

Are you a member of the public that is part of the gaming community and has suffered a personal hardship?

The gaming community's generosity up to this point has been amazing, and we anticipate you will continue to amaze us. However, we are not just here to raise money, but also to do good.

Please contact Tom (tom@jackvasel.org is preferred) if you believe you are a member of the gaming community and have suffered personal hardship. Tom and the rest of our Board of Directors are happy to work with you to explain our eligibility criteria, confirm your situation is within our mission statement, and then provide assistance.

3. This list is active in BGG, RPGG and VGG. Items in all three genres are welcome.

4. Please bid generously. This is a charity auction. This is not intended to get you the best deals. It might happen but that is not the point!

5. The auction will open at 12:01 AM EST on November 1, 2012, and close at 11:59 PM EST on November 18, 2012 (Jack Vasel's birthday). We use the clock on BoardGameGeek.com's servers.

351. Board Game: Outside the Scope of BGG [Average Rating:6.78 Overall Rank:1723]
Murray Fish

flag msg tools
mbmbmbmbmb
Having been inspired by Michael Jordal’s (aka Jormi_Boced) this is my first time to offer an auction item. Like Michael, I am something of a keen painter and regularly participate in the Monthly GoldenTurtleback Painting Competition.

I am offering a service very similar to Michael in that I will paint a dozen 25/28mm infantry miniatures or their equivalent* for the auction winner. I am equally happy to paint historical, fantasy or sci-fi (or ‘other’) miniatures.

As I haven’t been involved in this auction before I don’t have testimonials from previous winners, but here are some samples of my work:


28mm Crusader and Foundry Gladiators


28mm Westwind ancient vampires


15mm Minifigs Renaissance Gendarmes


10mm warmaster Tomb Kings Bone Giant


6mm Bacchus Seven Years War Prussian Infantry

If you’re still undecided please have a look through my image gallery which can be found: [geekurl=http://boardgamegeek.com/images/boardgame/all/page/1?username=muzfish4]here[/geekurl]

I envisage this working fairly easily in that you send me your miniatures in the packing you’d like them returned in (I’ll just re-pack them once they’re done and send them back in your packing). This postal arrangement will apply to all customers worldwide.

Things to bear in mind

d10-1 I am something of a slow painter and also have two children under three at home (and spend most of Saturday playing cricket at the moment) so I don’t get a lot of painting time, but what time I do get will be directed towards your models. The time taken to finish this order will depend on the complexity of the models and the paint job you want.

d10-2 Once you’ve decided what you want done I’ll work with you to determine the colours/effects/mood/whatever and do my best to give you what you want.

d10-3 I usually base individual miniatures on round metal washers or slot-a-bases. If you have any specific basing requirements (i.e. for wargames units) you supply the bases. Again, I’ll do my best to base them to your requirements.

d10-4 If the models require assembly/pinning or other work I am happy to do this, but note it may add a little extra time to get them completed.

d10-5 I usually finish the job by using a spray matte varnish to protect the miniature. If you have other varnishing requirements then, as ever, we can work together to get you what you want.

d10-6: Flexibility is the keyword. I give you my undertaking that I will do my best to give you what you want. If at the end of it all you are unsatisfied with the outcome then we can work together to try to reach some sort of mutually acceptable outcome.

If any of this is unclear/unfair please do let me know and we can talk. I see this as both myself and the winner helping a worthwhile charity so I don’t anticipate there being any problems, but let’s sort out any little problems before they become big ones.

* By this I mean I will paint more 15mm or 6mm (or whatever smaller scale) miniatures or fewer larger miniatures such as buildings, vehicles, large monsters or cavalry of whatever description.

366. Board Game: Queen's Necklace [Average Rating:6.45 Overall Rank:1314]
This listing is NOT for the game pictured!

I will work with the winning bidder to create a unique custom handmade mixed media pendant especially for you.

I primarily work in polymer clay and resin with inks, foils, and mica powders, but I love to work with many other materials and techniques as well (most recently I'm making video game sprites with mini Hama beads). We'll make something beautiful which will be a perfect gift, especially for a non-gamer spouse!

If the winning bid is over $100, I'll make earrings to go with it as well.

I'll pay for shipping to wherever.

Here's a few examples to give you a feel for my work.











EDIT: Typed £ instead of $. Force of habit, I'm afraid. Fixed now.

mbmbmbmbmb


and I were honored to be a part of this special event last year. This time around, we decided to repeat what we did last year since the results were pretty good. Anyway, Lisa and I are serious foodies living in the city with endless choices of delectable eats, why not combine it with our love of gaming and show the winner of this auction a day he/she will not soon forget. With that said, we would like to offer the following experience for the winner of this auction.

Grand Prize for the Winner

Disclaimers:
- Does not include flight fare or lodging accommodations.
- Winner may bring one adult guest and children (if applicable).
- All meals, snacks, beverages, and dessert will be included.
- Game location and gaming materials will be provided.
- No expiration date to use your winnings.
- One time use only. Cannot redeem for cash or cash equivalent.
- Expect to have excellent food, plenty of games, terrific company, and a wonderful time.


1) Pickup from airport or hotel in the morning of event day if winner is from out of town. If local, We will pickup the winner at his/her residence. If winner prefers to drive himself/herself, we can meet at lunch location.

2) Lunch for winner at the greatest pizza place in NYC (IMHO). Let's face it, we all know NYC has the best pizzas anywhere in the states (don't argue, this is not an opinion, it's a fact). And almost every year, Di Fara wins the best NYC pizza in the Zagat Guide and loved by pizza connoisseurs everywhere. This institution has been around for decades with the same old man making pies, no one else. They are so famous that they began serving $5 slices a few years back and there are still one hour lines. Trust me, a slice won't be enough ... ... we will treat the winner to simply the tastiest pizza pie in existence. Yeah, once again, it's only my opinion. However, feel free to look at the link below for many other people's opinions.

Btw, if the winner is not a pizza fan, there are nearly infinite other options we can go with for lunch. Maybe authentic dim sum in Chinatown? How about Peruvian roast chicken with green sauce or Korean fried chicken in garlic soy? There's always a famous Jewish deli around the corner with fresh hot pastrami or corn beef. Please do not disregard this offer due to a simple lunch choice.

3) Game day at my house with your choice of any games from my 600 plus collection. If it's in shrink, I will open it up. I host a weekly game night every Friday and sometimes all day Saturday as well. Many of my gaming buddies are fellow long time BGG members. I can invite them if the winner wishes. We will also grant access to their gaming collections (1000's)... .... don't tell them.

Between our group, we should be able to satisfy any type of gamer. If it's Eurogames you prefer, we have well over 500 different ones between us. How about some hard to find out of pint games like Indonesia or Princes of the Renaissance or Antiquity? Dexterity you say, we can have five different Crokinole games simultaneously on five different boards. Have you ever stacked up four Tumblin-Dice boards while using 15 dice per player? Once you tried this version, there's no going back. For those who prefer abstracts, we have some top quality games, such as *Star, Claim, Santorini, and Axiom. The point is, from kiddie games to wargames, we will fulfill your desires to the best of our ability.

4) Drinks and snacks will be provided during the gaming session, along with some unique treats. There are so many interesting flavors around NYC, I will make sure the winner leaves with fond memories of as many as I can get my hands on. Hint: Chinese egg tarts might make a cameo.

5) After gaming, we can do a late dinner at one of NYC's truly great ethnic restaurants to show the winner what NYC is really about: diversity. Since we're Chinese and NYC offers some of the most authentic Chinese food in the US, we would love to take the winner to a restaurant that fits his/her taste buds. We can enjoy Cantonese province's yummy roast pork and noodles. Maybe we can go Shanghainese style and devour some juicy soup dumplings or delicious wontons. Or sweat through the spicy bold flavors of a Szechuan region meal. Oh yeah, there's always the famous Peking Duck, you're missing out if you never tried it. On the other hand, if the winner does not prefer Chinese, we can always go for Korean style table-side BBQ, or Greek grilled seafood, or Indian curries, or Cuban slow stewed meats, or Japanese Yakitoris (grilled food on a stick), etc. You get the point. Winner's choice (within reason).

6) Night time driving tour of NYC. Our wedding in 2009 had over 100 out of town guests from all over the world. Trust me, we know where to take guests for the maximum enjoyment of an evening out in the Big Apple. For the winner, we will plan out a route to see the best views of NYC skyline and stop at some key locations if time permits.

7) At this point, if the winner still has room for dessert. We will introduce him/her to some of the most smile inducing sweets in NYC. Ever had 20+ flavors of rice pudding? Or Taiwanese shaved ice with tons of toppings? Or Big Gay Ice Cream Shop (google it)? Yeah, there's much more.

8) Throughout the experience, we plan on taking many pictures to allow ourselves and the winner to remember the entire event. Hopefully, during the process, we don't just enjoy one fantastic day together, it would be awesome to have maybe gained some new friends as well. Geekbuddies for life!

***** International friends are absolutely welcome *****

We promise to make it the most unforgettable day of eating, gaming, and sightseeing you will ever have in NYC. Take a day out of your vacation and consider spending it with us, it's a bit of NYC that you'll never experience without friends in the know. Allow our passion for food and gaming to give you the ultimate day in NYC! After winner makes payment, we will contact him/her with our phone number and email address. Whenever the winner is ready to redeem the prize, just simply contact us a few weeks in advance and we'll set it up.

Please remember, this offer never expires.

Bonus #1: We will provide the winner with a custom designed personal guide of what to do in NYC before arriving in order to allow him/her to plan out the entire trip better. It'll include many of our favorite places to visit in and around NYC (unique museums and attractions, special spots in Central Park, best rooftop views of NYC, etc.), where to get discounted attraction and event ticket (Statue of Liberty, guided tours, museums, Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, etc.), cheap delicious eateries (NYC-style bagels, NYC's best hot dogs, NYC's best pastrami or corn beef sandwiches, NYC's best street carts and food trucks, etc.), and all the fancy dining spots (French? Japanese? New American? Italian? Whatever your tastes may be. We've been to nearly all of the best places.) Most importantly, we'll tell you where to and not to visit if you only have limited time. What time to go and what lines are worth getting on or not. Which tours are the best and which are a waste of money. It'll take us some time to compile all this information, and to cater to the taste of the winner, so please give us at least a few weeks of notice ahead of time.

Bonus #2: We will also give the winner something special to take home with them. Maybe a game? Maybe some food? Maybe both? Or neither! You won't know unless you win.

Bonus #3 (if winning bid reaches $500): My mother worked in one of the best dim sum restaurants in China and learned directly from one of the top chefs (literally labeled as a national treasure) in the country. My mom will offer up her services and cook you the most authentic Chinese (Shanghainese province style to be exact) home cooked meal of a lifetime, catered towards the taste buds of the winner. I am a foodie today due in large part to being spoiled by my mother's cooking growing up. Some of the authentic dishes she makes at home cannot be found even in the best of the Chinese restaurants in NYC. They are simply too time consuming and difficult to make for a good profit. My personal favorite is Shanghainese spring rolls with a crisy fried exterior stuffed with a saucy napa cabbage, winter bamboo and pork filling. You can't find this dish made right anywhere in a restaurant. One major reason is that winter bamboos are very expensive and only in season for a few months of the year, not to mention that it is a whole day process to make spring rolls correctly. Most restaurants won't carry it on the menu or will substitute with canned bamboo. My mother makes this item only once or maybe twice a year and obviously during the winter months. Don't worry though if you are here some other time, whenever you're in town, there will always be something delicious in season. Besides, some of her best dishes like Shanghainese style wontons, slow braised whole duck in soy & honey, stir fried string beans with garlic & oyster sauce, egg batter fried pork chops, mango & tapioca coconut dessert, sweet red bean "pancakes", and so much more are all year round. If the stretch goal amount of $500 is reached, dinner out could be substituted by a five star meal at my house while we continue gaming. Tell me how many gamers can say they have done that in their lifetime? My friends and I have ... ... it is awesome! Btw, if the winner prefers to dine out, we can still have my mother make some authentic Chinese snacks and desserts while we game.


Please be generous with your bid for this wonderful cause. Good luck to everyone!

This is NOT for the game Arkham Horror, but is instead for six complete sets of officially licensed, crafted dice. There are two of each five dice sets of the normal (beige), blessed (blue), and cursed (red) versions. That's 10 dice of each type, for a total of 30. Manufactured by Q-Workshop and sold by Fantasy Flight Games.



Each set is unused but in opened, original retail packaging. They do not have any defects I'm aware of, and roll quite nicely with solid edges and a pleasant weight. They are just as pictured and come with Elder Signs for success rolls and also the numbers on each face.

Shipping will be FREE worldwide, but for international destinations I may decide to leave out the packaging to reduce bulk. If you desire to have it we can work out a minimal fee depending on total cost.

PS: This is my first connection to the JVMF but have been listening to Tom's podcasts regularly now and am happy to help out, so bid up and get yourself some cool dice!

Open but like new and unplayed game designed by artist/writer Kory Bing. http://korybing.com/

This fun card game has 13 suits of 4 cards each. Bing's fantastic art is based on the works of Lewis Carrol.

Also, this game is perfect for playing Tien Len --a fun card game for four from Vietnam that is growing in popularity in the US.

I'll cover shipping.

Here's a video she did on the artistic process behind the creation of one of the cards:
