Welcome everyone to the October Edition of the Geekgold for Game Lottery. Thanks Blott for the amazing Idea and thanks everyone who took part last time.

These are the Rules

How to bid for an item?
If you see an item on this geeklist that you're interested in owning:
1. It couldn't be more simple. Just tip that entry 1 and you are entered to win that game.
2. Check the description to see if you are allowed more than one entry on the item.

How to put an item on the lottery?
If you have a game that you're willing to part with for a little geekgold:
1. Post it as an item on the list.
2. Include a full description of the edition that you have and its condition. Be very clear on conditions, marks and box
3. Specify if you will be limited in shipping options. If you ship internationally, if the shipping is on you, and if so how much.
4. Specify when your item will close for entries.
5. You can post both RPG Items and Boardgames.
6. The item must be draw before 31st of October 2009

What to do when the lottery ends?
1. When closed, draw a random name from those that have tipped your entry. If you allowed multiple entries remember to take it in consideration.
2. Contact that person and arrange shipment of the game.
3. Send them the game.
4. Edit your geeklist item on this list with a note saying that "THIS ITEM IS CLOSED!" and to put the avatar of the winner, use the code [ username=name_of_winner] (without the space) for that.
5. When an item is closed I will move it to the bottom of the list. Please don't delete them

How to find the winner?
You can use any fair method you like, like putting the names on a hat and drawing it.

created an wonderful application that you can find here. It is very simple to use.
1. Got to the url by clicking here.
2. When you mouseover on the number of your item, you get a URL like this
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/46332/item/1043139#ite....
Your item id is the number after item, in this case it would be 1043139
3. As for bonus, for now the system can only work with given 1 for a given number of . For example, every 5 gets you 1 bonus.
4. You can limit too the amount of a user will be able to use to enter the contest

Special notes
Special Note #1: If you are giving an item, there is no guarantee for number of entrants. You must be prepared to give away your game even if you only receive a single geekgold entry. Do not enter a game unless you are prepared for that outcome!!

Special Note #2: If for any reason you are forced to withdraw a game you offered, you must refund all geekgold tipped to your entry.

Winners and Drawn Items
I will keep an item as the first item on this list keeping a link to all already drawn items and the winners so it is easier to check.

THIS EXHIBIT IS CLOSED!! I WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER ON THE NOVEMBER ENTRY!

Well here I go again...

When I made the first two mystery boxes, I realized I had some other stuff that needed to go, so I made another mystery box and packed it up and then decided to make this geeklist.

I am taking a bit of a gamble here, since it is quite possible I might not get the same response my first offering got, but that's ok, I need to give a little back regardless.

Also, a couple of other things. I WILL be giving back some of the GG offered in the form of 10% for a second and third place finisher. Also people seem to like the whole "extra entry" thing, so every 5GG gets you and extra offer.

It goes without saying you can enter as many times as you like.

I will post from time to time with a hint or two to let you have an idea of what you are getting if you win. Also, to make sure that you aren't getting a box of stuff you would never play, I will review the winners wishlist and make sure they either get something off of that, or something along the same genre at the very least.

Also, if the response I get for this is anything like I had before, I will add other prizes as well. I have been very lucky lately with my winnings and I want to give back to the community a bit.

So, in summation:

Winner gets a Mystery Box with some games and other stuff inside of it. I will try and make sure the winner gets something they like.

Two (2) Second place winners get 10% of the total GG offered

Enter as often as you want - every 5gg gets you a bonus entry

I will let this go until November 7th - hope this still qualifies for the October list.

*Edit* Sorry! Forgot shipping…I will pay for all shipping charges regardless of destination on this one. Free Mystery Delivery for all!

You can also find this entry on the new November list here -

This is for the Revised v1.1 edition. It is out of shrink and punched, but never played. Never found the time. It has a very slight dent in the upper right corner from shipping, but it is not torn.

Each 1 is worth one entry.

Drawing will take place within 15 minutes of Midnight(Central US Time), October 31st.

Shipping is on me worldwide.

Unless there are a ton of complaints, I'll just use the GG lottery app created by jeromier, that was posted on the first page.

Good luck and happy bidding!

Edit: No limit on entrants.

Winner was drawn with jeromier's application. Every was given an entry and I chose to randomize the distribution of numbers rather than keep the default grouping. Click on image below for a screenshot of the results. Thank You everyone!

Every 1 spent is an entry.

Drawing to be held using the tool from pg 1 sometime between 11:45pm and midnight, October 31st, Central US time.

SWEETENER
If this gets past 100 GG I'll throw in Rocketville as a sweetener and pay for shipping anywhere.

Description: Last Gamble is a low complexity WWII game about the German attempt to push through the Allied (mostly American) lines to reach across the Meuse River with 3 divisions intact at the end of any turn or 1 division by the end of the game. The game is played on a 11 x 17 map. Cards are used to provide annoyances and advantages for either side. The counters are simple but well designed.
I'll include my summary of the rules, but the one annoying thing (for me) about the game is that the set-up chart and the info on the counters isn't a perfect match.

Anyway,

Condition: Game is new, but punched and played. Counters haven't had their corners clipped, but you might want to. Cards are the original cardstock paper ones, not the new plastic coated ones. Game comes a ziplock bag. There was no box.
I'll be keeping the 10-sided die (since it complicates shipping).
So, you must have your own 10-sider to play.

Shipping: I'll just be sticking it in an envelope with cardboard to keep it stiff. No exceptions. I'll ship anywhere on the planet on my dime.
Sorry, ISS astronauts!

Bidding Rules:
Maximum 5 per bidder.
Accidental overbids will be returned. Sorry, Wulf.
No extra entries awarded.

Lottery End: Lottery ends October 28th. Sometime on the 28th (depending on when I get up, remember, etc.), the lottery closes and I'll use the fun stuff at random.org to determine a winner.

What's up for lottery?
Note: Not the "Bag" game chosen for this geeklist item, but rather:
(Updates listed at bottom)

Set of four nice looking crown royal drawstring bags.

The bags measure roughly 9" long (deep) and 7.5" wide.
Color is unfaded.

For use in any game that requires a blind draw and they double as component storage or dice bags.

Just for fun, I'm going to use EW's suggestion to put something fun (or practical) in each bag.

The bags also have a nice "reversible" feature. They're designed inside out with the visible sewn yellow seems; when you reverse them, they're solid purple and the seems become "invisible".

When?
Oct. 31st.

How much to enter?
Multiple entries are welcome.
One GG = One Entry.
For each multiple of 4 GG tipped per entrant, I will award a bonus entry (so 4 GG = 5 entries, 8 GG = 10 entries, and so on).

How will I send it to you?
Less than 70 tipped: Winner pays shipping
($2.00 or 20gg within U.S. and $3.76 or 38gg worldwide)
70 or more tipped: Free shipping U.S.
150 or more: Free shipping worldwide.

Since it was very limited as far as I know, and I'm not playing it, I might as well auction it off

It's in perfect condition. Never played, and the counters are still on the sheet.
Language is german (since it's not made in English)

Auction is up until october 31st.

I will cover shipping costs worldwide.

Happy bidding!

EDIT: forgot to mention that multiple entries are allowed =)

This auction is closed! The winner is DarkMind
Congratulations!


I used the randomizer tool which has been described in the openingpost. Here's what it said:
Quote:
As a check, this geeklist should have received 283 geekgold.

There are 283 effective entries from 57 unique tippers

My random pick is: darkmind
