let me know if it is swinging around your northern neighbor as well (Canada that is)

I'm definitely ok with it, Knarthex has already mentioned the possibility of shipping overseas, and some others had also indicated a willingness for the same.

Looks like I missed out on the signup for this box.... oh well, all I really wanted was the paint and it doesn't look like you had any extras of those anyway. But it's great to see things like this happening within the community, just goes to show how many awesome people are in this hobby. Maybe next year ;)

Not that I'm overly eager or anything... :lol:,

Ok, I'm sorry it took me so long to get to this.

 

There are enough items in the box for everyone involved to pick three (3) items. You do not need to put anything into the box; everything in it was donated by folks at Reapercon.

 

I keep saying 'items'; here's why.

95% of what's in the box is miniatures. The other 5% is random other things like a bag, a basing stamp, a tub of flock, that type of thing. Each of those random other things counts as one item. So you could take 2 figures and a basing stamp; or a basing stamp, the bag, and 1 figure,; or some other combination that works out to three (3).

 

So, pick three items, repack the box and send it along to the next person. Simple, right? I will be starting the box off in a medium flat rate box, which will include some insurance. As the box travels on, it'll probably become necessary to go to a smaller box. I would recommend using the flat rate boxes since they come with insurance.

 

The following will be the shipping order:

Pingo

RedAmbrosia

Sanael

Izzylobo

Strawhat

Knarthex (Not part of the box, he has just volunteered to ship to Europe)

Glitterwolf

Alchemist

RobinH

Charis Palmer

Ttuckerman

Generic Fighter

Fire Eyes

Disserma

Chaos Wolf (if there's anything left; I'll just transfer it to the regular BoGW)

 

 

Several people said they would chip in a few dollars to help with overseas shipping. For those folks, and anyone else who wants to (you DON"T have to), I would suggest contacting either Glitterwolf, Alchemist, or RobinH to see about helping out.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here, or PM me.

      Some of you may notice that I will be ending up with 2 boxes at the completion of this round; here's why:
      Froggy wants to transition from box starter to participant, so he is sending out the box he currently has and has been worked into a group so he can play along too. I will end up with the box that he is starting out. I may try to bring it along to Reapercon with me (if I have by then) or I may Froggcidentally combine his box with my box for the next go-round.

      Welcome to the (rather late---sorry about that) 5th 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 5.
       
      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 a different 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 things 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.
       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 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 June 25th (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 5. Thanks
