Christmas Spirit - Giving Games Away

I totally understand that this isn't something everyone can do....

It is the time of cheer and joy - and giving: Christmas. Of course, for many of us it's about receiving gifts, but there is also a lot of joy to be gotten from giving. If you think Christmas has become over-commercialized, then it's especially important that you give a gift - and I don't mean buying someone something, but giving away what you've already got. I'm talking about giving away some of your board games to spread the joy of our hobby to others.

Another good practical reason to gives games is that with the shipping costs for individuals of the late 2010s, it's barely worth the money to sell games unless they're local anyway.

One of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done in games is when we did the big donation to Egleston Children’s Hospital here as a part of our Secret Satan holiday thing. We collected a mountain of games from our readers and members here and it was awesome wheeling then for the hospital to use. All the cynicism and disappointment I have toward board gaming just melted away thinking that a kid that needed some cheering up or way to pass time during a long hospital stay might pick up a copy of Blokus or Survive or Loopin’ Chewie that we have and make new friends around it. Back when I had my store, I gave away a lot of games to a few different organizations and charities- it feels good. Better than blowing $200 on a Kickstarter.

Or you could give money to charities all year round and buy yourself a $200 kickstarter, many ways to help in life.
