Day 1 of the "12 Days of OSR Christmas" Giveaway - An OSR Threesome


Note: Due to the expense of mailing packages outside the US, some days of the OSR Christmas Giveaway will be limited to US mailing addresses only. This is one of those days. I apologize to the international tavern patrons and will make it up to you in the coming days. PDF gifts will be international and will require an OBS (occasionally LULU) account to claim in most cases. We do have print gifts that will be shipping internationally in later days.

We are kicking off the 12 Days of OSR Christmas with a very OSR package for a single tavern patron - print copies of the following donated by +tony a. thompson

1. S&W Whitebox (softcover)
2. Heroes & Other Worlds Adventure Game
3. Whitehack

Now, how do you enter to possibly find yourself gifted these fine gifts?

Add a comment to this post. 

Really, it's that simple. I'll stop taking comments at 5pm tomorrow night NYC time and randomly pick a winner and Tony will get the gifts out to you.

The same will go one for 11 more days. Some days the gifts will be in print. Some days PDF. Some days will have multiple gift receivers, some days will have 1.

The winner(s) will be announced within 48 hours after the post closes for comments, but most likely will be announce within hours of the comments closing, usually in an OSR Christmas posting.

I can't find you, you'll have to find me after the gift(s) is(are) announced. Unawarded gifts will roll over to Three Kings Day or something...

  2. Just to clarify, my donation (the _Curious Volume_ hardcover) can be sent anywhere, when the time comes for it to come up as a prize (it's not one of today's prizes, obviously). I'll be shipping it directly, with your kind permission, Erik.

    Hey! There's my comment for today! :-)

  20. I think I have said this before and certainly I'll probably say it 11 more times, but you and your blog are one of the very significant reasons I finally looked at the OSR seriously at last and rediscovered the fun.

  21. The 12 Days of OSR-Mas: A song in 12 parts.

    [sings] On the first day of OSR-mas Erik Tenkar gave to me, something inspired by OD&D...

    (Oh, yes, I'll be keeping this up and having a complete song by the end of the 12 days, with each day represented by the theme of the day...)

    (Just because, well, why the hell not?"

  25. Every gamer
    In the Tavern
    Liked OSR a lot...

    But the gamer Grinch,
    Who lived just North of the tavern
    Did NOT!

    The Grinch hated OSR! The whole OSR season!
    Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
    It could be that his head wasn't screwed on quite right.
    It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
    But I think that the most likely reason of all
    May have been that his imagination was two sizes too small.

  26. I'm hoping none of you are visited by the Krampus.

  27. Thank you, Erik, for leading this event, and Tony, for donating these items.

  28. I'm Canadian. If I win, can I gift it to an American friend? (my way of spreading the generosity :)

  29. (To the tune of 12 Days of Christmas, as if that wasn't obvious...)

  41. If I had the space I'd jion in, but I can only accept electronic material at this moment. To the one who wins, howabout a mash up of the three. Take the best elements of each and do a version that mixes it all together.

    ReplyDelete
  42. First it's the 12 Days of Christmas from Cards Against Humanity now this? Wow, huge win!

  43. Longtime reader (via RSS), first-time poster. Free stuff is a good antidote to introversion.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow! 78 Comments so far! I'd seen people talking about the Whitehack before and almost got a copy myself earlier. Do you think it would be a good version to play with kids, or is it too complicated?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Look into my husband's eye.

    :-)

    Seriously, good luck to everyone. Sounds fun.

    ReplyDelete
