Joe has been offering a BGG Supporter Badge Drive longer than I have. He has graciously offered to join forces this year. I am so honored! All hail our Co-Kahuna:

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he he lectured with
badge
much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.
mbmbmbmbmb


Because I am unable to share thumbs on this (or any) geeklist, I will give any this geeklist generates to him. Even the smallest .01 donation is a great way to say "Thank you, Joe." What if you have NO ? Find his comment at the very bottom of the geeklist (as this geeklist ages, you might have to dig for it) and give him a thumb's up.

To win:

(1) This is open to any BGG member (worldwide) who has a 2012 BGG Patron Badge.

(2) If you have not gotten your 2012 BGG Patron Badge yet, you might want to wait for the until BGG does its official patron badge drive. If you get a badge during that, all geeks with patron badges benefit by getting geekgold.

(3) If you want to be in the drawing for one of the games below, give that item a thumb. It does not matter if you don't have a 2012 BGG Patron Badge when you thumb the item. It only matters that you have a 2012 patron badge when the item is drawn.

(4) Please thumb this geeklist.

(5) Please remember to check for the shipping policy of an item. If you need to pay shipping costs, you would deal directly with the poster of that item.

(6) On 1/1/13 (or there abouts), the poster will randomly select a winner from all of the people who thumbed his or her entries. He or she will then confirm that the winner has a 2012 BGG supporter badge. If the winner does not fulfill these criteria, another name will be randomly selected.

(7) Thumbing an entry for appreciation gets confusing on this geeklist. I suggest giving .01 (or more if you prefer). You can also leave a message in the comments of that geeklist item expressing your appreciation.

------------------------------
To post:

Do you have a game that you do not like or have not been able to trade in a math trade? Is it in good shape or better? Do you have an expansion that you already own or for a game you don't own? Perhaps your collection just needs to be thinned down? Maybe you have some minis other other game related items you want to send on to a geek who might want them? Hey RPG and VGG cousins, we want you to join in as well!

Please put a game you are willing to give away on this list and you might just inspire someone to donate to BGG. BGG is getting better all the time so let's appreciate our admins in a way that they can appreciate!

1) The poster of a game is solely responsible for selecting the winner and shipping the item.

2) Please remember to put shipping information on your post. You don't have to give free worldwide shipping - just be clear on what you are offering.

3) Please do not connect tipping to what you are giving away. For example, for every 10 you will add another item or the tipper will get another thumb. Do not engage in any form of enterprises other than giving it away. There are already G4GG lotteries here on BGG. That is not the purpose here.

4) Please do not end your item before the new year. I know it is tempting to give away items for Christmas but that is not the mission of this rummage give-away. There are already plenty of Christmas-related activities here on BGG.

5) Please make triple-sure that the winner of your item has a 2012 BGG Patron Badge. That is the whole point of this geeklist! We want to reward those who bought a badge and encourage those who haven't gotten one yet to support BGG!

6) I recommend that you use Jeromier's Awesome Tool to select the winner of the lottery. It is very simple to use.

Write with questions and good luck.

Be sure to subscribe to this geeklist because new items will be added daily until the new year!

Time for me to join the party. I appreciate all that BGG and a good sum of its members have done for me. Please support BGG and go get yourself a badge now, if you don’t already have one!

In the spirit of Christmas Eve I offer up a set of Quarriors! X-Mas promo cards. I had these printed by Artscow some time ago. They are a hair too wide and the image is a little too large, but they still look beautiful and will mix in with your other cards well enough to be shuffled.

Let’s go with free shipping worldwide on this one. At the beginning of January I will use some fair method of determining a random thumbed of this post. Thanks for supporting the Geek!

I'm not 100% sure that it's okay to offer this here, so I guess that thumbing this item comes with a warning that it might be cancelled...

This is a home-made version of the deck-uilding game Barbarossa, re-themed to take place in the world of Valkyria Chronicles rather than a scantily-clad ladies-only Wehrmacht. Cut, cornered, and boxed with my version of the rulebook.

Free shipping worldwide, drawn on or near new year's day.

Ok, well it's not much, but I'm not into Microbadges that much and someone just game me some geekgold and asked me to spend it on myself. So, I just last week went through and bought the microbadges I was interested in not thinking about these coming up.

But, there are some of you out there that are interested in these. So, I'll offer up my three Microbadge codes AND I'll even throw in 24 GG so that you can double it.

To make it more interesting, I'm just going to award it to someone that has fewer microbadges I(not system awarded) then I have. By, my count I'm at 80. Which is surprising to me.

Two late additions as I clean out some odds and ends. This promo card and the promo pack below were given out at PAX 2011. Since I own neither game, I figure they should go to a better home.

Condition note: this card has no protection and has been kicking around in a bag of stuff. The corners are *very slightly* dinged. The card is not bent or scuffed otherwise.

Free USPS shipping worldwide in a standard envelope.

Who doesn't love getting honest to goodness snail-mail? - especially after Christmas when those holiday bills will start pouring in.

Up for grabs here is a handwritten postcard from me! Mailed from beautiful Calgary, Alberta.

I will draw no less than 5 names using the fancy-dancy randomizer tool.

The subject written about on the postcards can include anything from current weather to other various mundane topics.

Shipping is included worldwide.
More postcards may be sent at my discretion depending on comments and interest.

(do you like sending and receiving postcards? why aren't you on postcrossing yet?)

Ok, so here's the deal, I was thinking about what else I could put up here, and everyone else is putting up great games and promos and stuff, and I don't really have any other gaming items I'd like to donate, but I saw one item that sounded very intriguing - the play by forum for BSG. However, I have a job that blocks almost every website known to man, and can't often be on the computer for leisure (work in a hospital), so that wouldn't work for me. Also, my wife and I just had our 3rd child, a beautiful baby boy (AJ), born on 12-14-12. We've received lots of things for AJ, but I've been feeling a little left out, and a tad selfish. I know, that's crazy right? But I'm just being honest. That, and I've come to realize that my gaming days will be few and far between in 2013. My wife is lovely, but she doesn't share the same gaming passion that I do, and besides, leaving her in charge of 3 kids under age 5 is something I can do only so often without feeling too guilty. So this is something that I can do that's somewhat for you, and somewhat for me. You get a day that can be pretty much anything you want it to be, and I am pretty much forced into gaming that day, as well as get a chance to meet new gamer(s)!

I don't have a huge collection, but it's pretty decent, and there are a number of games that I haven't played yet, but would like to (look it over, see what strikes your fancy). Maybe you have a game that you'd love to try out (mine, or yours), but haven't been able to get to the table. Well, here's your chance! I'm offering my house to host an all day gaming Saturday for you and some of your friends, my friends, or just you and I!

Details:

I live in Keller, TX about 45 minutes west of Dallas, and about 30 minutes north of Ft Worth. If you're wanting closer details, we live very close to 170 and 377 near Roanoke (not far from either 35W, just down the road from the speedway and Cabela's or where 114 turns into 170 just past Southlake and Trophy Club). I have a fairly nice house, and we have a great dining room that is perfect for having up to about 12 people for gaming. I also have a media room if you'd prefer something like Xbox, complete with 73" big screen and surround sound system. The media room would struggle with more than about 5 or 6 tho... I have the complete Rock Band setup if that floats your boat. My wife makes killer snacks (her queso gets requested often), we can order a pizza or grab some food nearby, and my parents even live close, so the kids can disappear for stretches. We can start gaming mid morning, say 10AM or so, and go until you can't game any more!

Winner of this item will need to provide their own transportation to the area (if you're really up for it, and flying in, I'm willing to pick up from the airport, lol!).

I would prefer a Saturday, and it can be almost any time of the year, but we could talk about specifics after you've won. The only caveat is that we can't make it in July (3 birthdays and a sister-in-law wedding out of town in July this year).

So what do you say? Sound like your idea of a fun time? Then let's see some thumbs. And if this is just a terrible idea, well, at least keep it to yourself until tomorrow, it's Christmas man!

Winner to be drawn sometime the first week of January.

Edit - We have a winner!

I see that the additions have sputtered in the last day or so. Maybe I can infuse some new life in this thread.

This is for a set of Artscow cards for this delightful game. You will have to print out the rules for yourself, though.

Free shipping worldwide.

This is for a set of re-themed Artscow cards for this game. You will have to print out the rules for yourself, though.

You can get more information on this particular re-theme here:
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/40596/item/926639#item9266...

For those of you who dod not want to use the above link, here is what it says:
"This seemed like a good candidate for an easy retheme, so my version of Richelieu is called Iskanbul. It is based on a steam/fantasy setting I've toyed with off and on for different board/card games. The 9 regions of France are now the 9 major factions in the city of Iskanbul, and the three power symbols have become the three gods of Iskanbul (Arkina, Gaio, Mekka, representing magic, nature and technology). My album does not include influence tokens, as I just use cubes for that. Plays identically to Richelieu."

Not for the depicted game!

Sorry, folks. This is for a set of Buck Rodgers minis that I spray painted in yellow, red, blue and green to use in place of the little wooden buttons. It was an attempt to pimp my Alien Frontiers game. The best part about this upgrade is that it caused everyone who played the game to aim the figures at each other (when they landed near each other on the board) and shout "Pew, Pew, Pew" at each other in falsetto voices.


They look something like this but my paint job is no where as good. Also I have fewer minis and only in yellow, red, blue and green.
