Announcing the Tenkar's Tavern Monthly (more or less) Gift Box of What I Hope is Not all Crap Giveaway


So, thanks to various monthly crates, boxes, grab bags, Kickstarters and the like I have a shit ton of duplicates. Without a local gaming group to bleed off the overflow (and with a reorganization of my gaming collection revealing more of an overlap than i expected) I need to give some of this away.

Thus the announcement of the Tenkar's Tavern Monthly Gift Box of What I Hope is Not all Crap Giveaway.

What is that exactly?

Basically I stuff a Priority Mail box full of gaming shit, new and old. Some may be $100 game books, others old Judges Guild stuff, some Frog God adventures, maybe some 4e and Pathfinder, comics, cards, dice and more - listen - I need to clear space and this is what we are doing. 'Nuff said ;)

How do you get in the running for such a gift of goodness? Comment on this post by 8:59 PM Eastern time FEBRUARY 21st, 2018 (i left the date out). I'll announce the recipient on Tavern Chat around 9:30 PM Wednesday Night, February 21st, 2018. Note, I'm only shipping within the United States. Sorry, but I'm covering shipping and the goodies and International shipping is ridiculous.

I'll do this monthly so long as there are gifts to gift...

  2. Consider me entered! Someone's overflow of gaming products is another man's treasure!

  3. I'm in, hoping that it's the Judge's Guild stuff that ends up in the box. :-)

    1. I know what you mean - they produced a lot of good stuff back in the day, and it's fairly easy to convert to almost all the OSR games available.

  4. This is really neat, count me in, please!

  5. I lost both of those top two sneak peaks in the "Great Basement Flood of '96" and know those are worth re-acquiring, nevermind what other cool goodies you might have to give away. Very generous of you.

    1. I feel your pain. I lost a ton of stuff in the Great Basement Flood of 2005 (made worse because the clean-up crew the insurance company hired never documented what they were throwing away - despite reassurances to the contrary - and I was recovering from surgery and couldn’t keep an eagle eye on them. At one point I discovered that they’d moved a couple of box loads of plastic and metal miniatures to the curb!)

    1. Oh, I thought it said just a time, not a date. I misread and assumed I missed it by an hour or so.

      COOL! I'm in (worst case, duplicates can be redistributed. I have a similar give away pile going to a local con (convention, not Whitman))

  18. Dang it, missed it by *that* much.

    (Yeah, I know the 21st, but I figure at this point, it is now a tradition.)

  26. You’d think a free trade zone would figure out a way to have standard - or at least reasonable - mailing costs. As it is One Book Shelf typically prints and mails my RPG books to Toronto from the Czech Republic or Belgium because trans-Atlantic shipping is so much cheaper than postage across the US-Canada border. (Not so much for industry who routinely move parts and components back and forth across the border at negligible cost as long as they’re not using postal/courier services).

  33. Sounds cool. And a tip to international readers: use an American reshipping company!

    ReplyDelete
  34. As a have-not-enough, I'll always take charity!

    ReplyDelete

    And if you're afraid of shipping cost I've got a US address ;)

  52. My brother (in a evangelical fit) sold off almost all of what I had behind my back (at least he gave the money to my ailing mother), so anything would be welcome, especially Judges' Guild stuff.
