Box of Goodwill round 10 picture/chatter thread


Recommended Posts

So, update on my situation.

 

First off, Finally got an appointment for my cataract surgery. March 5th.

 

Second, Need a new flat rate box. BAD. Old one isn't being held together by packing tape so much as being packing tape held together by some cardboard!

 

Lastly, I'm expecting a delivery of some miniature related items tomorrow. Some of which might end up in the box depending on things. So, Box should go out Monday.

What i took!

 

Tbh with everyone, the box has some great stuff in it  but nothing really said "take me now!" So I went "hey I need this for  my Saturday games"

 

Since my hobby room/table is a absolute mess, its hard to find minis so I went bases I need for this Saturday, along the metal Citadel orc. The shadow demon will be in play in a few weeks.

 

I do like the Nolzur's style of base so I ended up just grabbing the bag of them, along with the human sorcerer 2 pack & along with the "evil" wizard sculpt.

 

Finally, while I'm not into buttons, I figured this one was appropriate for me right now. ::P:

 

Box should go out tomorrow vs today. I need to exchange some cash for the international envelope.

   I appreciate the pictures!  Interesting to see what everyone is taking from the various boxes.

 

  Since this is my first time starting a box, I was wondering what I am supposed to do when the box gets back to me. 

 

  Is it expected that that I will store the box in anticipation of it being used in a future BoGW round? If so, is it normal to "refresh" its contents?  My inclination is to remove and replace the items I put in to start the box since they will have gone a full cycle without being claimed but to leave everything others added to the box until they complete at least one more cycle. Or would it be a faux pas to cull an item someone else added to the box even if it goes a couple of cycles without being claimed?

 

  Ironically, most of what I considered the best items I used to start the box are unclaimed so far.  So I am not very good at anticipating what others will find interesting which seems a good reason to change out the starting stuff for different items closer to what people seem to be claiming in the various boxes.

If I remember what @Chaoswolfhas said in previous circuits, he has them run a few times, then culls what doesn't seem to move. I don't see a problem with grabbing something after the box has come back, kinda the point,right? As for redoing the box, more then likely it will be a whole new group of people who will find the items new to them.

Store the box for next round. You'll have a whole new list of people who have not seen the contents. If a bag of something lasts more than 2 rounds then you might consider it for removal or replacement.  That is part of why the notebook is important, you can look in it (if you inheirited a box) and see how long the items have been making the rounds, and decide.  Some items I put in my box last year did not get chosen, but have found a home this time. 

 

One year I took some old metal (not 25/28mm) that had been making the rounds for a couple of years and traded it out with figures from the Reapercon melt bin. That worked well.  

 

If you no longer want to be a box starter, let the organizers know and arrangements can be made.

Thanks for the guidance regarding what to do with the box when it works its way back to me.  I will hold on to it for a while in case it is needed for a future BoGW.  I will limit the culling to swapping out some items I used to create the box for things that might have more appeal.

Made my selections from the Chaoswolf Box:  Reaper Fruit Seller, Plastic Monk reading a book (game piece?), Bones Pack Donkey, 4 Bones Skeletons, Bones Chronoscope Pylons and Barriers, Metal Ghoul/Ghost(?) figure, Flight stands, a couple 1" plastic bases, and (not shown) 6 metal washers.

 

The box went out this morning to @Thoramel

Inarah and Ratmaster2000 both covered it pretty well. Hang onto the box and use it for the next round. If you see some stuff that has cycled through a few times and is not moving, go ahead and pull it out. And yes, absolutely grab a few items for yourself when you get it back.::):

Well good news, cash is in the envelope, bad news is the box is still here. I didn't wake up in time to get to the PO today.

 

Box will go out on Monday.
