Welcome to the BoGW chatter thread for round 4!

 

Did everyone like the way we did last round with coordinator 'a' shipping the box out, but having the circuit end with coordinator 'b'?  Or would everyone rather go back to coordinator 'a' sending out a box and having it return to him/her at the end of the circuit?

 

 

And here's the arrival/departure thread:

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68383-the-travels-of-sir-forscale-and-friends-box-of-goodwill-round-4-arrivaldeparture-thread-no-chatter/

 

Also, if there are any questions,check the first post here:

If that doesn't help, PM your box starter (the bold name at the top of the group that you are in), if they can't help you either, then contact Dilvish or myself.

It was cool seeing another box, but I'd like to see the box I started again sometime. Not even necessarily this time, though; just sometime. Though at this point it'll probably be totally unrecognizable, either way.

I can see it from both sides: I think some starters would be happy to have a whole new pox to pick from at the end, and others would like to see their "baby" back home, so they can see how it's changed. I guess it would complicate it too much to accomadations both options depending in the starter's wishes.

Yeah, that'd probably make for few headaches I'd rather avoid.

 

My thoughts are doing another round (after this one ends) and having the boxes ship back to the original starters on that one. So, round 5 would see each box going back to the original starters.

A to B please.  That way I hopefully (being in Canada) end up with another and different box making its trip north when the next round starts...

This.

 

Will try and keep an eye out for the sign up thread if it is not already going. Not sure i will have much for it unless I keep digging in my old gaming stash of figures from before I started painting the Bones.

Meh. I'm cool with either way.

Only care to get the original box back if we send a mini to be painted... otherwise, don't have a preference, as very few of the items I sent in the first two rounds made it back to me by the end.  (effectively it was 90+% a new box).

I have no opinion on this, I just wanted to post and tell Chaoswolf thank you for putting the BOX of good will in your signature. :)

I'd personally like to never again see stuff I put in the box, so I'm cool with A sending to B etc.

That's because you are afraid of what all of those cut apart for conversions little people will do to you if they ever see you again,,,,,

RE: international shipping

 

I said in the other thread I didn't want to drop the $$$ on shipping to our Canadian friends (or whoever), but it occurred to me that I can/would (a) cover ~$20 of the cost to get this box across the border, if others wanted to chip in the rest, or (b) chip in ~$5 to someone else sending another box.

 

I'm just not up to spending more than twenty bucks shipping this, to be honest. I don't know the exact details, but looked like, what--$45 flat-rate medium to Canada? Has to be under 25 pounds? Is it the same size as the domestic medium?

      Ok, here are the rules:
      1) Please don't sign up if you were there, or if you had someone get you stuff from the con. This is supposed to be for people who weren't there. No, I'm not going to check, but the gods will know, and they will visit a terrible vengeance upon you.
       
      2) Unlike the regular version of the BoGW that you may be familiar with, you don't need to match anything you take. All of this stuff was donated by people to allow other people to get some cool stuff. So, take whatever you want (but see below).
       
      3) No sharing your picks. If it works out that everyone involved gets to pick 3 figures but you only want 2, you can't pass that extra figure choice down the line to someone else. Everyone gets to have the same amount of stuff, unless someone chooses to take less. If there's stuff left over, send it back to me and it'll get folded into the next regular Box of Goodwill. (Exact number of choices will be based on the amount of people signing up)
       
      Most of the stuff this time around is metal and resin miniatures. There are no Bones (I did receive a few of the monthly Bones giveaway figure, but they're all the same figure, and I was probably only going to throw in a few to round out numbers if it becomes necessary, otherwise, I was going to put them in the regular BoGW). There are a few non-miniature items, such as bags, dice, etc. There are not enough of these items to go around, so if you want a bag, for example, that counts as one of your picks.
       
      Any other questions, please let me know.

      Would there be interest in/support for doing this again this year?
       
      This is the basic idea behind it for those not familiar:
       
      The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around.
      I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'.
       
      Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line.
    • By Chaoswolf
      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      Necromancer---arrived 1/14, sent 1/16
      Generic Fighter--arrived 1/18, sent 1/22
      Disserma--arrived 1/24, sent 2/6
      RedAmbrosia--arrived 2/8, sent 2/26
      Ttuckerman--arrived 2/28, sent 3/1
      Fire Eyes--arrived 3/4, sent 3/15
      Chris Palmer--arrived 3/18, sent 3/20
      Sanael
       
      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.
