4G is a monthly contest that gives away a board game or gift certificate!

The original 4G thread can be found here: The Great Geek Game Giveaway (4G)
The second thread can be found here: The Great Geek Game Giveaway (4G) - Thread II

Quote:
June Contest!

Pick the teams that you think will finish in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, at the Women's World Cup and post them in this thread. Sometime after the tournament is over I will select a winner from those who did the best (I assume some of you will get the results exactly, but will make up a scoring method otherwise). I will accept entries through June 21st.

If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a GeekMail!

Edited to make add the required stuff :

1) The game you want to acquire with the gift certificate
Keyflower
2) Why you'd pick that game
I've seen it from afar oft times. Stayed away from it, thinking it to "abstract"... But now, I've heard that it plays nicely with two... maybe it could please my wife ? I work hard to find the next game she'll love!
3) Where you are located
Laval, Canada.
4) Something interesting about yourself
I just went and bought Nations, on the fact that it should be a nice 2 player game... Am I a game junkie ? (Curse you Rahdo...you are a good seller!)

5) If outside of the lower 48 United States, your favorite place to get board games
I always get them from my friendly local online gamestore : espacejeux.tv

6) Anything else you'd like to add

Wow! Thanks for this opportunity.

I am also impressed to be the first to post here. (Maybe I'll also be the first to win ?)

1) The game you want to acquire with the gift certificate
City of Iron

2) Why you'd pick that game
Honestly the biggest selling point was the theme. Looks like a goofy and fun take on things I know I like. Also, somehow every time I have the money or a holiday with gifts rolls around it disappears from stores cry

3) Where you are located

Sunny, tropical, Wasilla Alaska

4) Something interesting about yourself
I'm an appliance technician by day and an assistant pyrotechnician by night. That's interesting right?

5) If outside of the lower 48 United States, your favorite place to get board games
My FLGS is only starting to stock some board games now that they have realized that I in fact will buy them. So mostly amazon because they ship free even to my state.

6) Anything else you'd like to add
I'm so glad you decided to keep this alive. I've been entering pretty much since Dan started it so I'd feel kinda lost without it.

1. Still wanting a copy of Mice and Mystics
2. It looks like a fun game for the family that involves some gaming and some storytelling.
3. I'm near Dallas-Fort Worth in Texas
4. I sing with a men's Barbershop chorus called the Vocal Majority. Watch a couple of our videos on YouTube to see what we look and sound like.
5. n/a, but I will put in a plug for both Roll2Play in Coppell TX and Madness Games and Comics in Plano TX. Madness has an insane game selection for a local store. Roll2Play is just getting started but offers game rentals and a pretty good selection considering their smaller size.
6. I've said it before and will say it again. Your (and Dan's) generosity is awesome!

1) Black Cross / Blue Sky - the Battle of Britain - blue sky series VOL 1
2). I feel it is the best air warfare board game available and my 5 year old son loves airplane warfare and is at a place in his gaming he can enjoy playing this game with my wife's help.
3) Maui, Hawaii
4) I love BGG and consider myself a BGG addict. I startered with three games, none of which I care to mention here. That was before finding BGG which was less than a year ago. I now have over 185 games and expansions....all of which I am proud to own.
5) BGG marketplace and ebay. No FLGS here on Maui....
6) Thank you for taking the torch over and extending the great efforts and kindness of others. Thanks to everyone in the BGG community that allows such a great community to gather and share such generously.

I once fell through the ice of a frozen lake and lived to tell about it.

5) If outside of the lower 48 United States, your favorite place to get board games

2) Why you'd pick that game
I've always thought Clue is an OK game. Not great, but OK. This looks like a much better version of Clue, and I think my nieces and nephews might enjoy playing it.

3) Where you are located
Lake Saint Louis, Missouri, USA

4) Something interesting about yourself
I ate fried ants in Guatemala and I liked them! Seemed like something I could snack on during a movie like popcorn.

5) If outside of the lower 48 United States, your favorite place to get board games
I live in the lower 48 states, but my favorite place to get board games is from Miniature Market. It's kind of nice to place an order and run to their brick and mortar location later that day or the next day to pick them up, especially if I'm not getting enough for free shipping from other stores. But I have moved up to the 3% savings level at CoolStuffInc, having placed at least half a dozen or so $100+ orders with them over the last year or so.

6) Anything else you'd like to add
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Santa IS real! Just look at some of the stories on the "Look Want Santa Gave Me" GeekList and tell me that there aren't people keeping the spirit of Santa alive. It's wonderful!

Cool Stuff is right down the street from me, so I know the feeling. These 4G gift certificates have really pushed me up in the award levels. It basically cancels out the sales tax at this point.

1. Still holding out for Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game.
2. While it may not be football as we know it, I still love a good sports game, and being the football crazed maniac I am, why not?
3. Birmingham, AL
4. I have a sarcastic streak a mile wide.
5. Not, but I'll answer anyways. Toss up between trading on here and my FLGS, Mad Doctor Games.
6. Youtube Poop is one of the greatest inventions in history.

1) The game you want to acquire with the gift certificate
Morels, if available. A German edition is announced for early 2014, but I haven't seen the artwork yet. If I don't like it, there are plenty of other games...

2) Why you'd pick that game
A two player game with a losely food related theme will appeal to my wife, so we would likely get it to the table soon.

3) Where you are located
in Göttingen, Germany

4) Something interesting about yourself
I will spend half of my traditional Christmas/New Year vacation to help the company I work for move to new rooms.

5) If outside of the lower 48 United States, your favorite place to get board games

1) The game I'd want to acquire
Galaxy Trucker: Anniversary edition

2) Why I would pick this game
There is so much misfortune in Galaxy Trucker, and the expansions make the scope of the game into a hectic brain-burner blast. It's the schadenfreude that really makes this game so amazing. Plus, It's a change from all the strategy games that I usually play, with a fun competitiveness that isn't really competitive.

3) I'm located in Northern California, in Sonoma County.

4) I recently got rejected from my early action college, but I can lick my elbow and I use tupperware daily.

5) I've never bought a board game before. Most of the games I own have been handed down. I have found Taboo at Goodwill though.

6) Thanks steckman for continuing this giveaway! Also, supposedly nearly 3,000 cars are crushed each year at monster truck events. Full sized steel-bodied cars from the 1970's and early 1980's are the ones most typically used.
