If you are like me, you like to give back when and where you can. You may also have noticed that this hobby and industry of board gaming we all love is a rather philanthropic one! We're a generous bunch, with big hearts, high hopes, and dreams that drive us towards greatness!
With that in mind, I am happy to share with you today a special auction for a collectors copy of Viticulture, hosted on BoardGameGeek.com, from Stonemaier Games. There are 13 copies of the collectors edition, each set attributed to some of Stonemaier Games' favorite reviewers/bloggers in the industry.
You have a chance to bid any of them, or all of them, but of course, we'd appreciate you bidding on ours, in support of the American Heart Association!
So what is the Auction all about? I'm glad you asked...
Half of the winning bidder's bid for each game will go to a charity selected by the blog associated with that game. The blog whose game garners the highest winning bid will get the entire amount for their charity of choice. Also, the blog whose game garners the greatest number of thumbs will receive an advance review copy of our next game--so even if you don't bid, this is a way to get an early look at Tuscany by your favorite reviewer (hopefully Crits Happen)!
Each winning bidder will receive:
To make things even more interesting, each of the 13 games will include one of the following bonus items. Starting with the highest winning bidder, each winner will get to choose one of these items to be included in with their limited edition copy:

Please feel free to share this story as well with others using the link buttons below! All the charities the reviewers and bloggers have chosen are respectable and remarkable in their own way!
Additionally, you never know, you may just find another reviewer or blogger you've never heard of and may find interesting... in the end, not much to lose in checking out an awesome project from an awesome company!
Thank you Stonemaier Games and thank you, the Critical Fans!
