I have spare minis from our VIP packages I don't want or need, maybe I can swap some things. Otherwise I will dump them on the melt bin

No worries!::):

 

So, I've had a few thoughts about this, and i'd like to know what you think, especially since you're the ones that helped me make this happen.

 

After a quick count, I have 34 miniatures, 5 miniature related items (bases, basing stamps, etc), and some random other stuff (pen, bag, discount vouchers for some of the vendors, etc).

Those numbers may get a little bit higher; I haven't gone through my stuff yet.

 

Here's where I want your input:

At the present count, I've got enough items to allow 13 people to take 3 things each, 39 people to get 1 thing each, or various other possibilities.

Do the random other items (bag, vouchers, etc) count as an item or not? If yes, that changes my numbers above. I'm leaning towards no, but tell me what you think.

I'm also thinking that this should be for folks who have no way (at least in the foreseeable future) of getting any of this stuff, so no one who had a ninja shopper, or anything like that. (Obviously, there's no way I'm going to be able to know for certain about that.)

I havn't tried yet, but I'm fairly positive this stuff isn't going to fit into a medium sized flat rate box in the packaging, is there any major heartbreak/outrage about me removing it for ease of packing and shipping?

To make it worth while for people to reship it should probably be at least 2 minis from the box.   Not sure about how to deal with non minis.  Maybe say 1 non mini item can be taken and not count towards the total items per person.

That's kinda what I was thinking, too. 2 or 3 items from the box each works out pretty well, and still allows a fairly good number of people to take part.

Will people continue to add other stuff as they take stuff?

No. I figured this one would just get smaller as it moves along till it's done. If there's still stuff left after the last person has had it, they'd send it back to me to either fold into the regular BoGW, or as the basis for next years Reapercon BoGW.

      Welcome to the 7th round of the Box of Goodwill! You may have heard about the fabled 'Box of Goodwill'. Maybe you were involved last time, maybe you're new and would like to see what it's all about.
       
      Well, you're in the right place!! Read on:
       
      This is the official, soon to be patented sign up thread for round 7.
       
      As before, please provide the following info in your replies to this thread:
      Where you live
      If you'd be willing to ship internationally (more expensive)
      If you want to be a box starter (depending on the amount of interest)
       
      There has been a minor rules clarification made. There is also a slight change. Even if you were involved in any of the previous versions, please make sure you read them carefully.
       
      Basically, put some stuff you don't want/will never get to/think other people will find cool into a box and send it to someone else. That recipient will take out whatever interests them, replace a like amount of stuff and ship it to the next person in line. And so on. The last person will send it back to the coordinator ( the person who originally sent out one of the boxes ).

      What's allowed:

      1)ANY miniature

      1a) this means any material, any genre, any manufacturer, any subject matter. If you put lead in, please label it somehow                (separate baggy or whatever)

      2)Anything mini related

      2a) bases, basing material (please package this very securely, and label it), terrain, scenic bits, whatever.

      3) Free stuff--leftover bits, drawings, etc. Please label these items as 'free' or 'giveaway'. If you want some of this stuff, take it, you don't have to match it.
       
      3a)Please limit the amount of non-miniatures related items to whatever will fit into a standard sized Ziploc sandwich bag if it is bulky. Drawings/sketches take up next to no 
           space at all and don't need to be stuffed into said baggy.
          
      3a-1)Use common sense. Also, if you have some hand-crafted, custom-built shark skin and mithril dice bags or whatever that you're certain everyone will love, PM 
               your coordinator and the folks in your circuit and see what everyone thinks of the idea. Majority rules.     
              
       4) Keep it reasonable; try not to put in anything larger than 54mm. That's gonna eat up a lot of space, and create a lot of 'what's it worth' questions.

      What's NOT allowed:

      1)Paint/liquid

      2)Perishable items
       
      3)Exceptionally bulky, non miniature related items. Donate that 7th extra copy of the Player's Handbook to someone that you game with.

      How it works:

      A coordinator will put  together a box of stuff and send it out to 8-10 people in his/her circuit. When you receive the box, take out whatever you like and replace it with a like amount of stuff.The value of what you replace should be equal to or slightly exceed whatever you take. We're gonna use the honor system here, so it's going to be somewhat subjective. Trades should be on a one-for-one basis, unless you're taking something big, in which case it's one-for-two or more.
       For example: If you see 4 orcs that you want, take them and replace them with 4 other roughly man-sized figures. If there's a         
       larger figure (54mm ) that you want, take it, and replace it with either 1 similarly sized figure, or 2-3 man sized figures. Once you're
       finished, pack it up and send it to the next person in line.
       
      Here are some other specifics:
      1)The coordinator will put together a box and start it on it's way. Each coordinator will pm me with the tracking info of the box as it sets out to the first recipient. After this, each recipient will pm the tracking number to their coordinator (the person who started the box) AND the person that they're shipping it to.
       
      2)Participants will publicly announce when they have received the package (pictures would be cool, but aren't mandatory), and again when they send it off to the next person.
      For example: I received the box o' goodwill from Chaoswolf. When ready to ship, 'I'm sending the box to Pingo'.
       
      2a)Participants will also be responsible for contacting the next person and getting their shipping information. The people involved in any given circuit will be public knowledge, so feel free to exchange shipping info how/whenever you wish.
       
      3)Each participant will have 1 week from the arrival of the box to make their swaps and then send the box on to the next person. This is really important, we had several boxes sitting for several weeks with no movement in the last go around. 
       
      4) For participants in the USA, shipping will be via flat rate boxes. Tracking and insurance are included in the cost. In the event of loss, the person mailing the box will make the insurance claim and use the proceeds to purchase items to fill and ship a replacement box.
       
      5) I'm anticipating roughly 3-4 months for each box to make a complete circuit (8-10 people x 1week per person + travel time). Once all boxes have completed the circuit (returned to the coordinator), we'll open up a new sign up thread and start the process over again if there's interest. Coordinators will need to pm me so I know that all circuits are complete.
       
      6) This will be open to everyone. We have had several people express willingness to run/participate in a circuit for the newer members; I feel that this somewhat offsets any concerns about anyone's 'reliability'. Perhaps I'm a little naive, but the feeling I'm getting from both public posts and pm's is that everyone really seems to want this to work. Newer members are defined as anyone who hasn't been active on the boards for a year,or without at least one completed exchange.
       
      7) Sign ups will end Midnight September 5th (east coast time). There will be a little wiggle room allowed here to allow for different time zones and whatnot. Once I get up the following morning, it's closed. I'll figure out how many people are involved, how many groups there are, who's going to coordinate and post that information in the first post of the chatter thread.
       
      8) Individual coordinators are able to exercise a bit of leeway within their circuit. They will be setting up the initial package, so they can just stuff a box, or do a quick survey of everyone in their circuit to determine preferences. If they want to suggest everyone slap a color on Sir Forscale (or his designated representative), that's up to them. I'm thinking that the coordinators can run things pretty smoothly. If there's a question or concern, hit them up. Coordinators: if you're not sure how to proceed, hit me up and we'll work it out.
       
      9) if something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason (life happens), please contact your coordinator as soon as possible so that he/she can make the necessary adjustments.
       
      10)The group paint figure is not mandatory, just a little something extra for those who are so inclined.
       
      11) Have fun!
       
       
      Ok, I'm pretty sure I've covered everything. If I missed something, or it's unclear, please bring it up in the chatter thread, or PM me.
      Don't add it here.
       
      Suggestions for a different 'group paint' figure and/or title can go in the chatter thread, too.
       
       
      ETA---I don't want to make any assumptions here. Even if you were in the other rounds, please indicate if you'd like to do round 7. Thanks

      This is one of the figures I nabbed from the recent BoGW.  Our group is currently running Rise of the Runelords, so my husband the DM was very happy to gain another ogre.  It is hard to tell in the photos, but the nasty looking sword in back was done in folkart color shift green flash paint for a nasty looking magic weapon.
