Tabletop Game Giveaways and Contests 1000 Member Prize Celebration!

I manage the Tabletop Game Giveaways and Contests group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TabletopGameGiveaways/  Nearly every day members of the group post new giveaways for tabletop games (and related items).  It's a thriving community of people sharing information about the games they are passionate about and ways to win those games from the incredibly generous publishers, bloggers, and other members of the tabletop games community.

We just hit 1000 members in the group as a little celebration I am organizing a big giveaway of a bunch of items.  I've reached out to a number of sponsors and we have game prizes coming in!  This celebration giveaway will run for the month of February As more prizes are donated to the giveaway I'll list them below.  At the end of the month I'll draw names from all the entrants for all the prizes!

Remember, sponsors are encouraged to enter too!  They just can't win their own prizes!  Thank you to everyone who is participating!

    Also, I, too, love The Gaming Goat, but I live in Rockford, so it's rare that I ever make it out there.

    Recently, they were amazing, and did an even swap for a copy of Armada (I had two that I won from Boardgamegiveaway.com) for a copy of Imperial Assault, and I picked up Tash Kalar and Lords of Vegas! They're wonderful :)
