He was setting up an auction for the Vasels at the same time yesterday. I did not know he was doing that and just happen to scoop him. He has kindly consented to help out here. Thank you, Neil.

Has agreed to arrange for non-game donations. He will help with other tasks as well. It was Kent who came up with the original idea for the BGG support drive. He has been an inspiration to me since I joined. Thank you, Kent.

He put a call out to some designers and artists to make donations to the auction. John Kovalic answered the call.

All of these gentlemen are great help. Please show them your appreciation with thumbs and kind words.

---------------------------------------------

I have been reading the news about Jack Vasel and I am heartsick. There is a thread that discusses the situation but I honestly don't know what to say. I only have thoughts, concern and prayers.

I will administrate this auction and give the Vasel family the money.

I wish I could do more - much more - but this is the most constructive thing I can think to do of at the moment.

Feel free to add your items to the list. I just added this list to RPGG and VGG.

Please bid generously.


This auction ends on Monday, February 7, 2011 at 9 pm - Central Time Zone.


To put an item in this auction:

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 and click on the Submit button.

When the auction ends:

I have received many questions on how to process a donated item when this auction ends. Here is what I can think of so far:

1) The thread will be announced as closed at 9 pm - Central Time Zone - on Monday, February 7, 2011

2) I will announce the winner for each item.

3) I will email each winner with instructions for payment.

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) I will then give all the money to Tom Vasel.

7) I will ask Tom Vasel to post a comment on this list confirming that he received all the money.

8) If this does not work or if I forgot something, please geekmail me. Thank you.

If you have any questions please contact me, not Tom Vasel. He announced that he is taking a rest.

Cate,

Can you add something big and noticeable to the header of the Vasel auction (and perhaps to the end comments as well) instructing people to NOT go through the Marketplace with the final transactions. We do not want to take our 3% commission on these. If they want to put it through BGG have them arrange it as a trade.

Thanks!

I modified the script I wrote for the 20 Most Anticipated Games list and posted this: Jack Vasal Auction Summary
----------------------------------------

1) Please pay using this address, vaselauction@wehneman.com, via PayPal. THIS PAYMENT IS ONLY FOR THE ITEM. Note: This is a PayPal account for Neil Wehneman, who is serving (pro bono) as the Vasels' lawyer for the purpose of gathering the money for this auction. Don't worry, ALL the funds will go directly to the Vasels!

2) When paying with PayPal, be sure to declare this a "gift" under personal payment. That way, Tom Vasel will not have to pay fees to PayPal.

3) Also, please pay for one item at a time. We know this seems inefficient but it will really help the five of us process the items correctly.

4) Put the item number and your BGG username is the subject heading of the email. This is VERY IMPORTANT! We have 500 items to process. Failure to do this will slow down confirming the payment and getting the item to you.

5) Your payment will be confirmed on a post on this geeklist item.

6) Once your payment is confirmed, send your mailing address to the donor of your item via geekmail. Shipping costs should be discussed and handled through the donor.

7) Please allow adequate time for us to process, manage, and reply to payments. We are handling a large amount of items, with a large amount of donors and a large amount of recipients. We will do our best to handle things in a timely manner.

8) If you have any questions, concerns or complaints, please geekmail them to Cate108.

Thank you for supporting the Vasel family. This gaming community is amazing.

While I am unable to contribute by bidding I can at least offer up an item. This is a complete used copy of Samurai Swords. I counted up and bagged the components. Board, instructions and bits are in very good condition while the box was some shelf wear and a small dent on the side. Winner is to pay shipping.

This is not a big game, but currently it is pretty much out of stock, waiting on a reprint. Brand new in the sense that it is still in shrink wrap. Shipping in Continental USA is on me.

If you don't want one of yourself, I'll make one of a friend, enemy, loved one, fictional character, Mike Gray, whatever.

We have great respect for Tom as a reviewer and even more respect for him as a father. His willingness to share in the heart wrenching but also heart warming story of his son Jack has left us in awe at his courage and his faith.

Time for old school video games!

External image


This is a PC game. I had no problems loading it on my XP machine. It is the special edition version that also includes Might and Magic I - V. It also has maps included.

"Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven is a computer role-playing game developed by New World Computing and published by 3DO in 1998. It is the sixth installment in the Might and Magic series, the sequel to Might and Magic V: Darkside of Xeen and the first of the Might and Magic titles to take place in the same world as Heroes of Might and Magic. It continues the storyline of Heroes of Might and Magic II, and is followed by Heroes of Might and Magic III in the series chronology.

In Might and Magic VI, the player takes control of four adventurers and, starting with the lowest attributes, guides them to be mighty heroes to save the fictional land of Enroth. The player is allowed full roam over the terrain, as opposed to the grid-based maps of the previous titles, allowing scaleable mountains and fully-explorable maps. Battles can be conducted either in real time or in a turn-based mode, where the player can take time determining what enemies to attack or what spells to cast. However, the player's movement is severely limited in turn-based mode. As in the rest of the series, all action is shown through the eyes of the party, in first person view. "

From Wikipedia:

"Might and Magic VI was a critical success upon release. Gamespot gave the game a 9.1 out of 10 and called it "a standout game in what should be a great year for role-playing game fans", as well as saying "the graphics in Might and Magic VI are the best yet seen in a 3D first-person-perspective role-playing game." [16] IGN gave the game a 9.0 out of 10 in their 1998 review, saying "any fan of role-playing games should already own this game... [it] satisfies on a level that no RPG has in years. Highly recommended for almost everyone." [17] RPGFan.com also gave the game a 9.0 out of 10, citing the gameplay as a particular strength. "When all is said and done, the sheer fun of exploration and character development is more than enough to keep playing Might and Magic VI. It can get tedious at times, and the gameplay and graphics have a few limitations. That alone is not enough to drag the game down, and in the end, the end result is more than the sum of its parts. Choose to enter the land of Enroth, and you'll find yourself playing for well over 100 hours."

Shipping is free to US and Canada. Will pay for the first $10 elsewhere.

Washington and troops have been sitting on my shelf freezing their horses off and are ready for action, or your collection mantle potentially warmer than Wisconsin. Tom is a primary catalyst to our board gaming hobby when our own boy got seriously ill and we were looking at options for a home bound life. Peace.

This out of print grand-daddy is still in shrink wrap. Soft reserve $100.

Well, the last one went over so well, let's do this again!

This is an opened copy. Punched, but never played. I was going to give it as a gift to someone in my game group but they said they would rather that it go to help Tom, Laura, and the Vasel family.

It includes the Mannekin Pis promo, but I do not have sleeves for this copy. In lieu of sleeves, I will give the winner 100 .

FREE SHIPPING in the U.S.A., or first $10 of shipping if elsewhere.

Minimum bid: $20 (but I know the BGG community can rock this one!)



UPDATE: Mayday has graciously agreed to provide the winner of this item with 2 packs of sleeves! Awesome! See their post below. My offer of 100 still stands as well.

Please note: This is not an auction for the game Das Spiel.

Instead we are offering a piece of custom jewelry made by Francie Broadie my favorite Spieler (sorry, Dave) and my partner-in-crime.

This is a hand-made game pawn collar necklace, normally a $100+ item. We will arrange details concerning length and color with the winner. Here are pictures of the one Francie wore to BGG.CON 2010.

We will cover shipping costs.

Bid early, bid often on a wonderful piece of wearable art!

One copy of Dice Town - Opened, played twice, in great condition. I've gotten enough games that this one will just not see much play time in the near future. I'd love to see it add to the funds for Tom.

I will pay FULL shipping within the US and the first $10 International.

This is an opened copy of Alien Frontiers, played only a few times, great condition. Though I love the game, my gaming group is rather indifferent. Since it doesn't get much play anymore I figure this is the best time to get it into the hands of someone who would enjoy it.

The Vasel family is a big reason I'm playing board games again and I always look to them for recommendations and reviews. I'm more than happy to help out as much as I can.

Free shipping anywhere.

This is an unplayed copy. There is a very little bit of light scratching on the box cover, aside from that its perfect. I will pay for standard ground shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states. I will also throw in a copy of Armorica as a bonus.
