Games for Geekgold (G4GG) -February 2013 - Stoned in Love!
It's February again game lovers!
The official Games for Geekgold February 2013.
Love is in the air, and there are lots of new games to share, learn more about, whisper sweet nothings to, and win! ... which game is your significant other?
The Scraimer tool is now compulsory for all draws: any issues talk to the Adminions.
There will be checks of some draws by admin Octavian to double-check we're all above board.
I may list items but I will no longer bid on them as a way of ensuring some impartiality and so I can draw any item if needed.
The Scraimer tool is traceable and can be audited.
1 Let’s make 2013 the year of the good chap–
If we put an item up we draw it, if we draw it we send it to the winners.
The good chap' code:
- We're all good chaps, so behave
- We're friendly, honest and err on the side of being good to each other
- If we make mistakes we own up, apologise and make good as far as possible
- We treat others as we'd want to be treated
- We're here to play boardgames and have spiffing fun and this lottery is just another way of extending this fun by getting more excellent games to fabulous people
Anyone with a BGG account can participate but new users can’t list items. Note: NEW USERS CAN BID ON ITEMS!!!
If you see an item on this geeklist you're interested in owning, tip that entry and you are entered. Note the postage/shipping details.
Please don’t hassle people who list items if they aren’t including free postage or won’t post it to where you are. You can query items but don’t hassle people – be a good chap.
+ Post it as an item on this list (but not if you’re a new user- new users need to clear any items they list with the adminion team -see below).
+ Include a full description of the thing or edition that you have and its condition.
+ Specify if you will be limited in shipping options. If you ship internationally, if the shipping is on you, or if you’re willing to contribute to shipping.
+ Scaimer’s tool allows a number of bonuses (eg: 5gg=6 entries 25gg=32 entries) instructions are here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6240410/GamesForGeekGoldDrawingsHel...
+ Specify when your item will close for entries (this must be by 28 February).
You can post Board Games, Video Games, RPGs, and related items. You cannot make a lottery for Geekgold or something completely unrelated the main entry, although these types of item can be added as bonus or as secondary winners. You can put gift cards as long as it is for a games related store (i.e. no gift card to a convenience or department store allowed, but one for steam, funagain, drivethru rpg, etc can be raffled). A Paypal payment in lieu of an online store permitted if the winner cannot easily obtain the game for an online store.
+ Always link the entry to the correct item on the database. So if you are auctioning the Video Game version of Puerto Rico Puerto Rico and not to Puerto Rico.
+ Miscellaneous game entries, like FIMO miniatures, pimp items, etc should be added using Miscellaneous Game Accessory, Miscellaneous Miniatures Game Accessory or Miscellaneous Card Game Accessory as appropriate.
+ Don't update more than once a day! Preferably not more than once a week.
+ If you are in some way connected with the item in question, either as a publisher or as a designer, declare it!
+ In case anything happens to your item it is wise to hold onto most of your geekgold from items in case refunds are needed.
+ Mutual tipping of items can look unfair, as can giving geekgold to others to bid on your items... be a good chap, we are watching.
+ Please try not to add substantial new items to a lottery item after a few days of listing without checking with me first. Some people invest much or all of their limited if they perceive they have a reasonable chance of winning. Dilution, while good for you, may be unfair for bidders.
If you put up an item you will make the drawing (we're here to help though)
Use Scraimer’s tool - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6240410/GamesForGeekGoldDrawingsHel...
(you may need to use a browser other than Internet Explorer as I can make it work on 3 other browsers but not this one)
This tool will draw the item and post the result to the item.
If you have two prizes you’ll need to do the draw several times removing earlier winners if they are rolled again. You will need to specify if the same person can’t win more than once.
! By the last day of the month OR the day you nominated you are expected to draw the item. They must be drawn within 5 days of the end of the month or it is expected that you will return all geekgold.
How to draw....
- follow this link https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6240410/GamesForGeekGoldDrawingsHel...
Load it to your tool bar. You’re ready.
Check the bonuses match in item it defaults to 5 = 6 entries and 25=30. You can DEL these or change them.
It’s worth doing a quick check the numbers match the entry.
Amend the item to say it’s closed.
Click draw. That’s it.
Contact that person and arrange shipment of the game.
Send them the game.
If you can't draw the entry I will do it for you - ask and give us a few days’ notice.
Do not delete the item!
Please note: If a drawing error is noticed for whatever reason, an adminion, (Richard, or I, or as a last backup Danny) will declare the draw with the error null and void, and the item must be redrawn.
