I've probably got too many games. I want to make someone's day.

I'm going to list a couple of good games, that I won't miss, which will most likely become an appreciated addition to someone else's collection.

This is where you come in. Do you know someone, who could use an extra christmas gift? Someone less fortunate? Some shy on cash during their studies, making it hard to find the money for new games? Or someone who just deserves some boardgaming love this christmas?
Then nominate them!

But only nominate someone you think in need, and whom you think would appreciate that particular game. Add a (brief) story why you think they deserve it.

December 1st. I will pick a nominee for each game, and I will pack the games nicely. They will be labeled "To [receivers name]. From a friendly Geek. Do not open until Christmas". I will cover shipping costs of my games to wherever. No strings attached.

PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT THE GEEKLIST ENTRIES. They should be reserved for nominations. Entries not nominating should be kept in the general comments, thank you.

Feel free to join in, if you have a game, that just sits on your shelf. No game is too small, if only it is in good condition.

Merry Christmas.

I love Brass. After a couple of games of Age of Industry, I've decided to stick to Brass, and will let this one go.

EDIT: some people wouldn't keep debating politics out of this thread, so it has been locked by an admin *sigh*

I've added another AoI item further down, where you still can put nominations.

I want to get the new edition. So I'm letting go of my first edition copy.

This one just sits on the shelf. I've played the game, and enjoyed it enough to acquire it myself. But it just sits there. Time to let go.

That's actually an excellent idea. I'll join with a couple of games too.
The first one is the Avalon Hill edition of Republic of Rome. I bought the new edition and won't have need for both of them.

And Manifest Destiny. It's been sitting there unplayed for a while now, and if we manage to find the time and the players, I think my group will rather play Age of Renaissance anyways.
