Charity work is important to Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games and so each year he holds a auction to raise funds for a variety of charities. According to his post, in 2013, 2014, and 2015 a total of $9,264 was raised for 32 different charities!
This year Stonemaier Games is auctioning off 10 mint-condition copies of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector’s Edition and the expansion, Invaders from Afar. This is a great way to get your hands on the most upgraded version of Scythe while knowing that your money is going to help others. 100% of proceeds go to charities and the fulfillment service, Fulfillrite, has promised to mat the winning bid up to $2,000.
This auction is supporting 10 different charities, picked by content creators around the web, such as Doctors Without Borders, Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America , Alzheimers Research, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. You can bid on whichever ones you want to support and the content creator with the most thumbs at the end of the auction will receive an advance review copy of Charterstone in 2017. Payments will be submitted through the BGG marketplace via PayPal.
The rules as stated on the auction post:
–Bidding starts at $1. Bids must increase in increments of at least $1 USD. To discourage final-hour sniping, in the final hour of the auction, bids must increase in increments of at least $25.
–Each auction will have 1 winner. Thus there will be 10 winners.
The winning bidder of each auction will receive:
–1 copy of the Scythe Art Connoisseur Collector’s Edition
–1 copy the expansion, Scythe: Invaders from Afar
–Free shipping anywhere in the world from the fulfillment center in Oregon
The auction will end on December 5 at 2:00 pm CST, so hurry up and place your bids now! You can find the Charity Auction Here and listen to us talk about Scythe on our podcast:
