My girlfriend and I live in a really tiny apartment. I’m trying to come up with some funny thing to compare it to but everything I think of just makes me sad at the realization that the comparison isn’t too far off. So with out any metaphor or simile I’ll get to the point; as a geek I collect tons of stuff like video games, books, board games, figurines, DVDs, cards, etc. So every year I have to take stock and figure out what is important to me and what I can give the fuck away. This year my place is smaller than it has ever been (thanks California!) and I’m looking to get rid of a lot of stuff. First up on the board is some Magic the Gathering cards. From time to time Wizards gives me boxes of cards. I play with them, usually mini masters, or a draft here and there. But for the most part I don’t really play. So I am left with shit tonnes (that’s metric) of cards and nothing to do with them. I have been told they are valuable so, as a geek, I have squirreled them away.
Now I’m giving them away. So this is how it’s going to work. I’m tired of all the “follow me on twitter for five extra entries” and “like us on Facebook for an extra chance” BS. I’m sure I will get over this soon so don’t expect all my giveaways to be this simple. Buuuuut for this one all you have to do is leave a comment telling me that you want the cards, or that you like free stuff, or like cats, cake, girls, guys, or anything else you want to put in that little comment box at the bottom of the page. On the 31st of may I will pick a winner at random.
I will open this up to international contestants, but anyone outside of the continental 48 states will have to help me cover the shipping cost. I’m not made of money (probably because I give shit away) so I can’t go shipping a ton of cards to Australia all willy-nilly.
It’s not required but you can always follow me on Twitter @ThadeousC or like this site on Facebook by clicking the like button to the right.
In case you have any questions about the giveaway I’ll try to do a FAQ:
Q: What kind of cards will the winner be getting?
A: Mostly M13 and Innistrad, with a few other sets thrown in… Return to Ravnica I think, and some Magic Unicorn Mountain something something.
Q: How many cards will I be getting?
A: I have no freakin’ clue. A lot, more than a thousand less than a million.
Q: Are there any Mythic rare cards?
A: I know there is at least one, but I ate a few to gain their power (delicious!) so not as many as there should be.
Q: Can you post a list of the cards?
Q: How will we know that you, Thadeous, selected a winner at random?
A: Ever hear of trust? If you don’t believe that I picked a winner at random I will freely offer you your money back, less any administrative cost I have incurred. Fair?
Alright that’s about all I have in me tonight. I have been drinking, and I am pretty sure that this will only get worse as I go on. Now get to posting so someone can get to winning! Also, the kick-ass s’mores tins the cards are currently in are NOT included. They are too freakin’ awesome!
