Last Saturday, Tim Seitz, better known here on BGG as out4blood, passed away from a heart attack after a long bike ride here in Richmond, Virginia. Tim was a great friend and an amazing gamer, as attested by the many kind remarks folks have been making on the forum posts (there have been two that I know of) and this Geeklist. His loss was terrible blow to the community and to his friends. The gaming world grew a lot quieter, and a lot less interesting, when Tim left us.

Our loss is nothing compared to that of his lovely family, though. Tim left behind a wife of 19 years, as well as three young children. The holidays are never going to be the same for them.

Financially, too, things are going to be difficult. Tim did not leave behind a lot of medical bills, but the recession had not been kind to him. He had just started a new company with a couple of other guys, and so the future looked bright, but sadly Tim never got the chance to turn things around entirely.

As an expression of our love for Tim, and as a token of our appreciation for his many contributions to the gaming community, I would like for us to gather together and do what we can to give his wife and children a bit of a financial lift. I can't think of a better way to honor Tim and the holiday season than to give generously to his family. I hope you'll join with me in doing whatever you can.

The format of this auction is based on (and shamelessly copied from) that of Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction - 2012 - CLOSED - Time to pay and ship!.

How can I help?

You can:
* Donate a game
* Buy a game
* Thumb this list, and mention it to others - Twitter, FB, whatever
* Help me with accountability
* NEW! Donate money directly to Tim's family


Donating a Game

To donate a game, simply add a board game, video game, or RPG to this list:

1) Scroll up to the top of the geeklist (above the first actual game entry, below this header).
2) Click on the 'Add Item' link
3) Select Board Game (or VideoGame or Designer or whatever) on the page that appears.
4) Enter the game name in the name field and select the appropriate game from the drop down list that appears.
5) Type in game condition and shipping information in the comments section. Please be as specific as you can about the details that may be interesting to a buyer, such as the edition and language of the game, whether all parts are fully accounted for, any box imperfections, and so forth. Once you're done, click on the Submit button. There are no standard shipping requirements - please select those that suit you.
6) Feel free to specify a starting bid. I'd prefer it if no one specified a BIN price, but do what seems best to you in this regard.


Buying a Game

Surely we all know how to do this. Just add your bid as a comment to the item you're interested in. Be generous! I will ask, in the spirit of kindness and generosity, that folks refrain from sniping.


When the auction ends

1) The thread will close at 11:59:59, EST, on Friday the 14th of December. I'll use the clock on BoardGameGeek.com's servers to judge whether a bid was placed on time or not.
2) I will announce the winner for each item.
3) I email each winner with instructions for payment. For now payments are going to come to me, but see "Accountability" below.
4) Once payment is received, I will post that information on the item.
5) The generous person who donated the item and the recipient can then work out the shipping details. Please pay shipping costs to the person who donated the game/item.
6) Unless I hear or state otherwise, I will be taking no further action after we post that payment has been received.
7) I don't know how to do tax receipts. If someone would like to help me with that, it would be awesome.
8) All of the money will go to Tim's wife, Wendy, to help her cover her expenses and get the family back on their feet.


Accountability

It's very important to me that all donors have complete assurance that every penny they have donated is going to Tim's family. For now, the best way I know to do that is to post figures for all of the bids paid, and to get a few of mine and Tim's mutual friends here in Richmond to verify that the funds have been completely transferred to Wendy. If anyone else has a better idea, or would like to assist in verifying this, please send me a GM. I would really love to have someone well-known and trusted in the community to look everything over, but I'll take help where I can get it. The important thing is that people are able to give with confidence. Thanks!


UPDATE 8 December 2012:

Thanks to the extreme generosity of so many Geeks, we're getting very close to $6000 in total pledges! I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who has participated so far. Your gifts are going to make a major difference in the lives of the four people Tim loved most in the world. I believe that if Tim could be here to see this, he'd be completely speechless (quite a rare occurrence for him).

UPDATE 13 December 2012:

Wow -- I haven't checked the numbers yet this evening, but we were just shy of $8000 in total max pledges last night! This has really made December feel like Christmas for me, and I hope it has for all the participants as well. Tim's funeral cost the family about $8500, so with a small push at the end we can offset that cost entirely and still have a bit left over. Thanks again, and please remember to tell folks about the auction!

Update 15 December 2012 (the wee hours):

That's it! Thanks again to everyone who bid or donated games. I'm now going to go through entry by entry, declaring the winner and emailing the winners with payment instructions. Once I have a grand total, I will post it here. Donors should start thinking about packaging their games for shipping -- the person who won your game might like to get it before Christmas (too late for Hanukkah, sorry).

Update 15 December 2012, 1:18 p.m. EST:

Alright, I have made it through the first 3 pages, plus a smattering of others on later pages. Time for a lunch break! I'm declaring the winner and the amount, then sending the winner a GM. Sorry if you won several items and get several emails -- I'm just trying to smash through the list as fast as I can (hopefully) without too many mistakes. Once I get all that done, I'll start going through and noting the bidders who have paid. Thanks for your patience! I don't have a grand total yet, but it looks like it's going to be around $8300 -- thanks, everyone!

Update 15 December 2012, 4:03 p.m. EST:

All winning bidders have been GM'ed! A few minor issues have been addressed. My phone is dinging regularly with Paypal alerts! You guys totally rock -- depending on the exchange rate (we have a couple of Euro bids), we should break the $8750 mark for total winning bids! This is fantastic, because it means that Wendy will have all of Tim's funeral expenses totally paid for. This is going to mean so much to her and the kids.

I smell badly of B.O. now, so I'm going to hit the showers and take care of a couple of errands (hungry cats) before I start going through payments to mark them off. Tonight you should see the winner notices updated as I go through them. If you have paid but don't see your winning bid notices update tonight or tomorrow, please send me Geekmail so that I can get it straightened out! Thanks again, everyone.

Update 16 December 2012 (the wee hours):

I believe that I have marked PAID to everyone who sent funds to me on Saturday. I have received a grand total of $5,277.56 so far! Note that I have given exact net figures for every item, so that everyone knows exactly how much of their money is going to the Seitz family after PayPal gets their 3% or so. If you'd like to prevent PayPal getting any, you'll have to link your account to a checking account or debit card (I believe) and send it as a gift or personal transfer (I am sure). The good news is that PayPal only levies the fee once, so once it is in their system it can be transferred without more fees. So I'll be able to get every penny that I have listed here to Wendy with PayPal.

Update 16 December 2012 7:41 p.m. EST:

I'm just about to go through with another round of PAID notices. We're up to over $7200 in paid bids, so thank you to everyone who has gotten their money to me already! I'm going to make the main deposit to Wendy's account as soon as I hear back from her about whether the memorial fund address is where she'd like to receive it. I'll deposit the rest after everyone has paid.

Some people seem to have missed the PAID notices. Please understand that I cannot edit Geeklist items posted by other BGG users, so I am updating my own winner notices, near the end of the comment thread following each item, to show that an item has been paid, and exactly how much will be going to the Seitz family.

Also, some folks have expressed concern that their donations have been lessened by PayPal. There are ways to prevent PayPal from taking their fee, as discussed, but please don't feel like you're honor-bound to go back and add to your payment to cover the fee. It's great, really, and thanks very much if you'd like to do that. But everyone understands that it's a cost of doing business with PayPal. I didn't want anyone to feel that I was posting "net" figures as a way of making bidders feel pressured to cover the fee or anything like that--I just want to be completely transparent about what money is going where.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns about the auction, and I'll do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible.

Update 26 December 2012 5:35 p.m. EST:

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! I just sent the rest of the auction proceeds to Wendy. We brought in $8,499.62, thanks to the generosity of so many donors and bidders. Thank you all very much!

As of Sunday, with one exception, all bidders have paid in full, some more than that! I have contacted the donor of the one special case game, so if you have not received word from me via GM to the contrary, donors should send any remaining games out ASAP.

Let's get this started in style!

This is my rarest and most valuable game. It's also one of the very few big-ticket grail games that seems to be in no danger of a reprint any time soon. Tim joked about stealing it whenever he was in my home.

More photos available upon request -- let me know if you want to see a specific piece in more detail.

All the awesome pieces are present and in fine condition -- every turret and rock, and even the little jimmies used to denote ownership of vehicles. The box is worn and creased in a few places, but intact, with no blown corners. The plastic lining has a crack here and there, but it still holds the components and keeps score. The map looks fantastic.

According to Spielboy.com, this game has not sold for under $200 here on BGG since 2005. Copies don't come up for sale often, so take advantage of this great chance!

I will ship to anywhere in the US or Canada (if I HAVE to) for free. Elsewhere in the world, GM me and we'll work something out; you probably don't want to pay a tariff to import this.

The rules are in French, but a translation is available here on BGG. The cards are in French, too, but there are only three different words on them.

C'mon, folks, I know you want this! Buy it now, when it will benefit folks who need your help.

Starting bid: $200

Still in shrink. Will include all the IndieGoGo promo cards that were included as stretch goals as well.

Ordered this as an add-on with Among The Stars, but haven't had a chance to unwrap and play either game yet. Figured I'd donate one of the games to this great cause instead.

New and in shrink. Sadly, we're all out of extras for the game. But Bryan and I (the designers) will sign it, if you like, and I'll even donate an hour or two to Skype (or Google Hangout) you through your first game.

Board Game: JAB: Realtime Boxing
I was extremely humbled by the fact that JAB was in Tim's list of favored games. Something that Tim and I shared was our opinion that an ideal game should test one's skill above all things. JAB does exactly that.

MMA was also one of Tim's greatest passions. He could talk endlessly about the strategy and tactics of MMA. Over the past year or so Tim and I had been working casually together on an MMA Sequel to JAB. His unparalleled skill in data modelling and analysis meant he had a TON of potential as a game designer.

Starting bid: $20

I didn't know Tim, but I was aware of him on the Geek - particularly as the one who proved that the Halifax Hammer is unbeatable. I'm sorry to hear of his death, and I'd like to contribute a small something to the auction. So here's a copy of Hansa in very good condition. A touch of shelf wear on the box, all components in perfect condition, bagged up.

Starting bid: $1.
I will cover shipping within the US.

It pains me to sell it, but giving means sacrifice. This is the very copy on which the Halifax Hammer was discovered: the deluxe limited edition, signed by Martin Wallace and numbered 452. Tim borrowed it from me after our first play and kept it for a couple of months, posting messages right and left the whole time.

It's in excellent condition. It's never been played without sleeves on the cards.

Buy it, play it often, and remember our friend Tim when you do! I will ship it anywhere for free.

This is NOT a Chihuahua. It is a Sphynx cat. A bald, grouchy Sphynx cat who will bite you if you mistake him for a Chihuahua.

This is another game with a specific connection to Tim. He loved Mahjong, as do I. But he didn't like the way this set smelled, and so he gave it to me. After that, whenever he was in my game room he would sniff theatrically, and ask "what is that smell?"

And I won't lie -- you will notice the notice the pong of cheap Chinese plastic when you take it off the shelf. It's the vinyl case; the pieces are fine. It doesn't bother me, and I don't think it would bother anyone who doesn't make a habit of sniffing their game boxes. But it did bother Tim, so... take that for what it's worth.

From gallery of skipsizemore


This is a very durable and no-nonsense set for serious players. They're Chinese-style, size 7.5. I believe they're made of nylon. As you can see from the photo, the pieces are very thick, so that they stand up well without a rack (notice the Quarter on the 3 Flower tile). It is a complete set. There are no rules in the box, but you can find them all over the place.

I'll ship free anywhere in the US or Canada.

Starting bid: $25

Nevermore Games for life!

We've never offered this before, and it was Bryan's idea: every Nevermore game ever. You'll get Chicken Caesar now, and Mars Needs Mechanics as soon as it comes back from the printer. I can't tell you about our next game after that just yet, but it is in development now, and it rocks! After that, you'll get each game as it's released, until we quit or you do.

Board Game: Chicken Caesar
Board Game: Mars Needs Mechanics
Board Game: Unpublished Prototype
Board Game: Unpublished Prototype
Board Game: Unpublished Prototype
...

We'll ship this anywhere in the US or Canada for free.

Starting bid: $75 -- less than the combined KS prices of our first two games!

New in shrink. Shipping covered, via USPS Priority Mail anywhere I can ship to via USPS Priority Mail.

If you'd like, I can sign it. In addition, if you'd like, and you're _really_ patient (read - likely won't be shipping until April), I can ask Tom to sign it as well.

I'll cover shipping anywhere in the U.S.

It's in outstanding condition with one con and one pro:
-one bottom corner has a ding and the bottom of the box has a slight crease running the length of the box close to an edge. I can take some pictures if you want, but it's not that big a deal.
-I upgraded two minis (Eagle Rider & Sorceress) to painted ones sold by Eagle Games. So you'll get one painted and one regular for each of those two heros.

-smoke-free and pet-free home

Starting bid is $1
