Box of Goodwill round 9 picture/chatter thread

Recommended Posts

Also agreed with pineapple.  There are arts and maps in the current logbook in addition to the inventory of what has gone in and out of the box.

In some groups the journal really is more for stories, poems, sketches, etc. than for logging. My daughter drew some pictures in the book last time. 

 

I think both approaches are fine.

I have drawn and doodled in the log books. Will do that again. Even if I need to add some kind of little booklet....

I was the first to get the box last time and didn't know what the "log book" was. I guessed it was a sketch book, so I drew a few pictures. 

Everything is sort of on the honor system anyway so I don't really see the point in keeping track of inventory unless you enjoy that sort of thing.

 

I would be more interested in a book of art, poems stories and such from a group of people I participated in something with, but never really met in person. Sort of like having a bunch of one time pen pals.

the log book acts as sort of a travelogue, combining some art, some listings, some aw shucks moments (Wow, I wish I could have had that), inspirations (people are taking a lot of the mini I never use, maybe I should throw some in), warnings (the group of bones 1 goblins have been in the box for 2 rotations now, maybe I shouldn't add more) and a general history of what went where (maybe someone still has that arm I'm looking for).  To me it makes for fun reading to see who got what and who put in that treasure you found.

That right there is the real reason to keep a logbook. Even if you're not a box starter if you participate in multiple rounds sooner or later you'll end up in a previous box again. As @Kangaroorex said, then you have a chance to look back and see how your contributions did. 

 

With the last round being my first time as a box starter looking over the logbook after the circuit finished was fun but it was also really helpful too. It let me see exactly what people were interested in, and gave me a chance to readjust the box going forward. I think everyone has put in at least one item (if not more) that they thought would go quickly only to see it languish in a box for multiple rounds. Even though logging your picks and replacements may not be fun for everyone, I do think it adds value to the box itself.

 

Then of course you have weirdos like me who read through the whole logbook during his first circuit just because I thought it was interesting.

I always love these boxes. I am a big sci-fi miniatures fan and it seems to be the ones people don't take.

I quickly looked to see what I had in the closet and was amazed at how many "I will get to that someday" figures I have accumulated over the years.  I certainly will have plenty to exchange for whatever I take from the box to  "get to someday".

So, I've got my box nearly ready. I usually have a vote on the group paint mini but since due to the circumstances of this BoGW, I made an executive decision to just pick something. So, the group paint mini will be a 3D Printed Warforged Magic User I have. I'm gonna give it some primer and finish setting up the box.
