Events & Announcement / [Retreats] BGC Retreat 2018 - set your dates?
« Last post by jack208 on August 27, 2018, 04:14:19 pm »


Since there's some chatter on the Retreat whatsapp group about dates, I thought of posting a poll here to see which dates are preferable to anyone who's thinking of attending this year's Retreat. Our usual Retreat markers are on the 1st week of December but sometimes it does shift to other weekends (last year we did it on the 2nd week).

If you are thinking of coming, let us know by voting the date(s) that works for you. Anyone can vote, not just past Retreat attendees.
p/s You need to be registered as a forum user before you can vote.

As our Retreat seats tend to go fast, if you registered your interest here (or track this topic) you'll be notified once we are open for registration. :)

Questions pls post a reply here.

Let's start with the recently concluded Gencon 2018 and what are some of the hot titles from this event.

Events & Announcement / BGC Retreat 2015 - Vote for lucky draw game
« Last post by jack208 on September 23, 2015, 03:35:52 am »

As is customary in each of our annual BGC Retreat, there'll be one lucky draw prize of a medium-weight Euro game. We've given away games like Long Shot, Kingdom Builder, etc but this year we thought we'll make it more interesting for the participants by asking you to choose any one game for us to buy from Essen for the lucky draw!


 


Yes you read it right, you can choose a game that we'll get for you from Essen Spiel 2015 - it can also be an older release - and one of you lucky participants will get to bring it home at the end of Day Two. The criteria for the game selection


  • Price between RM150 - RM220 (or between USD35 - USD50)

  • Not a limited collector edition or OOP (it can still be a hard-to-stock game)

  • However if we get to meet the author, we'll be happy to get the game signed by the author (but that means you agreed to accept an "open" non-shrinkwrapped game)

BGC will give our best effort to acquire the game in Essen, however in the event we cannot get the first game of choice, we'll get the one with the 2nd most votes etc.


 


If you are one of the BGC Retreat 2015 participants, welcome to cast your vote here. One vote each. Non-participant votes won't be counted (since the forum does not provide a mechanism for us to limit who can cast votes so in theory this is open to everyone).


 


If no one casts any vote, then BGC wil exercise our own discretion and pick up any game in the above price range for the lucky draw. So exercise your choice to influence us now. :)


 



Note: I've not tried the poll feature of this forum in allowing others (non-poster) to add more choices. If you do not see the "Edit This Poll" option, then it means only I can add more game choices to the poll. If this is the case, I'll give everyone a chance to shout their game(s) of choice to add to the list above. You can shout more than one game (but remember, the more choices you have, the more diluted the votes would be). Everyone have until end of this month 30/9 to add your choice of game(s).


 


After which, I'll remind everyone on 1/10 to cast your votes.
