No offense, Raiko! I'm just foolin' around. Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

But I'm serious about givin' away stuff!

To celebrate 2012, I'm giving away a few games from my shelves. I'll even cover shipping!

The Rules.

If you'd like to be considered for a particular game in this List, thumb that Item.

Tipping will give you extra chances to win. Each 1.00 gives you an extra shot at the the Item you tip.

I will select the winners on January 22, and will notify them privately via Geekmail to obtain shipping information. If all goes as planned, games will be shipped out in late January to early February.

Good luck to all, and have a Happy 2012!!!

EDIT 1/2/12: Due to the overwhelming amount of GeekGold I've received, I have added new Items to help spread the wealth to others.

EDIT 1/2/12: The spirit of generosity is spreading. There have been additional donations to the three 3M games I am offering. See below.

EDIT 1/8/12: I've collected 5 times the GeekGold in this GeekList than I have in 5 years. I've increased the number of Avatar prizes I'm giving away from 10 to 100!

One of the rare games I've found while thrifting. That is, I rarely find games while thrifting out here in L.A. Now, I pass the savings on to someone else.

It's opened. The box has a little wear, but the game itself is complete and appears to be in great shape.

A 3M edition of Twixt, in their traditional, slipcase box. It's in pretty good shape for a copy of a game that's over 40 years old.

This game was simply given to me unsolicited. I just don't have the room for it. It's been opened, but as far as I can tell, it's unplayed.

The winner of this Item will not get these promo cards.

In this lot, I will fill a Priority Mail Regional Rate A Box with as many games as I can fit in it, and ship it out to the lucky winner.

What's in the box? Don't be expecting copies of stuff on The Hotness Lists. But rather an assortment of various games that may find a more appreciative home.

Overseas participants...if necessary, I'll repack the games so they can be sent out to you (Regional Rate boxes are for domestic mail use only).

The winner of this Item will not get a copy of The BoardGameGeek Game.

Since I have received far more GeekGold from this GeekList than I had ever anticipated (I've received more from this than I have amassed over my entire time on BGG), it's time to share the wealth even further.

In this item, I will give away 10 ÜberGeekBadges (prizes of 50) to those who do not already have one.

Those already with an ÜberGeekBadge may still participate. Should a winner already possess an ÜberGeekBadge, (s)he may nominate another worthy BGG'er who is without and I will award the prize to that individual.

The winner of this Item will not get a copy of Avatar the boardgame.

I will also give away 10 100 Avatars (prizes of 30) to those who do not already have one.

Those already with an Avatar may still participate. Should a winner already possess an Avatar, (s)he may nominate another worthy BGG'er who is without and I will award the prize to that individual.

EDIT 1/8/12: The amount of GG I've received in this Geeklist is simply astounding to me. I can't possibly use all of it properly, so I'm going to spread the wealth that much more!

With the continued inflow of GG, I will now also give away 10 OverText features (prizes of 100) to those who do not already have it.
