Dale Yu: 4th Report from the GoF – The Prize Table

One of the great traditions of the Gathering of Friends is the Prize Table.  It’s a scheduled event on the Saturday of each Gathering where the attendees get their names drawn out of a hat and get a chance to come up to the Prize Table area and choose a game to bring home.

The games on the Prize Table all donated by the attendees – each one bringing in at least one game to add to the “raffle”.  Many of the game companies that attend the Gathering donate multiple games – so many so that in previous years, there have been multiple rounds of game picking during the Prize Table

At this point in the week, the table is only about 1/3 full – but I thought it would be neat to show what is already up there.

The big ticket table – so far, Antiquity, Big Boss and Hotel Life are on this one






Sorry the pics are sideways! Trying to post quickly, and my phone can’t rotate the pics and post them!

until your next appointment

    GoF prize table pics are something I look forward to each year. For some reason, I’m terribly enamored by them. I use to really enjoy Doug’s recordings of the early pics for his podcast.

    There’s an extra special prize this year not yet on the table – you’ll know it when you see it!!!

    Hmm, I hope I get it! Actually, I’m curious to know what I get off the table. I’m having James Miller pick for me… I’m awaiting word from him to see what I get!
