From gallery of W Eric Martin
...a number of titles, some requiring more work than others. The games are:

Tricky Monkey, from Ariel Laden and Smart Zone Games
Publisher's page
Listing by Gigamic, which is distributing the game in France.
French rules, which seem to be the only ones available.
–I have images from Gigamic to upload once the game listing is approved.

• The card game Diam's from Les XII Singes
–As with Tricky Monkey above, knowledge of French would be helpful since both the game page and the rules (PDF) are only in French. (There is a submission in the queue, but the game description is far from clear.)

Konito? from IELLO
—French website Tric Trac has posted a game preview.

Mimtoo from Cocktail Games.
–Another game previewed on Tric Trac, and thus another title best for someone who speaks French.

Antartik from Iopeli
–Once again previewed on Tric Trac.

• The card game Dégage
–Yet another game preview on Tric Trac.

Gitterrätsel Junior and Gitterrätsel English Expansion Set
–As covered in this German-language press release.

Time No Time Junior
–From the same press release.

Das kleine Ich bin ich: Würfelwettlauf
–Posted on the Selecta Spielzeug website, with downloadable rules in German.

One-Time Task: Create Listings for Reprinted Expansions for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game

Board Game: A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – Secrets and Spies
Fantasy Flight Games has reprinted a half-dozen expansion packs for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, updating the card text to match the current rules and errata while adjusting the card deck composition to match the current approach of including three copies each of twenty different cards. I've created a listing for one such item – specifically this version of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game: Secrets and Spies – and am looking for someone who wants to create the other five. Any takers?

One-Time Tasks: Write Better Descriptions for Dungeon Petz, Klondike 1896, More

Board Game: Klondike 1896
Want to write game descriptions for titles that need some love? If so, here is what's on the agenda:

Klondike 1896 from new Czech publisher Stragoo Games. Post a comment for this or the next item, and I'll get you started.

Speedway Champion, another release from Stragoo in association with Czech Board Games.

Ugh! from Calliope Games. Strangely, I can't link to the rules directly on the Calliope website – boo, restrictive web design! – but you can find them on this page if you want to call "dibs" and get started.

Takenoko from Matagot is just starting to appear on store shelves, and in honor of its presence we should rewrite the description to tell potential players what they'll actually be doing in the game! English rules (PDF) are available on the Matagot website.

• How about another panda game, this one being the children's game Paul Panda from Beleduc? I somehow ended up with rules for this on my desktop if anyone's interested in redoing the Babelfish in place now.

• What about String Railway: Transport from OKAZU Brand? Lots of attention prior to Spiel 2011, and now? English, French and German rules are available on the game page.

• And my goodness, what about Dungeon Petz, which got lots of love prior to Spiel 2011 and still has folks in the U.S. on the edge of their seats waiting for it to pop up in retail stores? The description could use a bit of expansion to cover what's going on in the game. Anyone want to read over the English rules here on BGG and have at it?

One-Time Task: Create Listings for a Half-Dozen Games from Giochi Uniti

I received a product list from Italian publisher Giochi Uniti, and while I've created listings for the titles scheduled for release in 2012 – Dungeon Venture, Bookmaker, and other games – I'm looking for someone who would like to create listings for a half-dozen already released titles, all of them trivia-based games and most of them based on locations in Italy.

Knowing Italian is not required for this project as you could probably get by with an online translation program, but it would certainly help. Reply if you're interested, and I'll get you more information. Thanks!

Board Game: 1st & Goal
I have cover images for each of the 1st & Goal expansions from R&R Games, but in addition to uploading images, I'm looking for someone who wants to edit and make corrections on five of the expansion pages. I've already done one as a model and can provide more details to whoever posts first with interest in the project. Thanks!

I have an Excel file with a list of titles from Eagle Games, Gryphon Games and other companies published or distributed by FRED Distribution. This list contains only the game names (in alphabetical order), their SKUs (aka, the product numbers), their weights, and the listed publisher of these games.

I'm looking for a volunteer who wants to input (when needed) SKUs/product numbers and weights for these titles. Your reward will be whatever Geekgold you receive for having your corrections accepted, which is a minimum of .25 per correction. First commenter below who volunteers gets the job. I'll provide more details then. Thanks!
