For Sale: GAMES FOR EGGS and other fun prizes - Page 440

post #4391 of 10479
I am good with that... The only time I stood a chance was when I was in my Deer blind using Verizon..... My home connection is slow..... But it's all in fun anyway.
I enjoy just hanging out watching the rest of you all play.

you can still play.... There are several that really want eggs. People are willing to take them.
Is a fun social thing to do. MELTEL won the other day and gave me her eggs. Now I got a chance to Hatch out some of those black chickens..... If you win someone will take them..... Just have fun.

I'm thrilled to see the sportsmanship, sharing, and support going on here!  Previous winners are offering to give their prizes to current non winners.  You all are super great players!

 

My concern is that one player may end up with several other players playing on their behalf, trying to win the prize for that one player.  A game could potentially end up quite a number of players offering to give their prize, if they win, to one specific player who doesn't win, forming a team if you will.  Does that stack the deck against others players who don't have anyone else trying to win for them?

 

 

Would it be ok to ask previous winners to declare who they are playing for, and to limit the number of people on a "team"?

I would have no problem with that. So far I consider @LittleLakePhil my "team" only because we are both from Michigan. But I also told @bullets that if I won more eggs, they could have the. And I offered them to @prizepete if Phil didn't want his and offered some of my other eggs free with minimal shipping to a couple different members. I would just like to address one issue. We all want certain "rare" eggs and nobody flinches at $25 shipping for them but $20-$25 seems a little high to me for more standard eggs. I appreciate everyone who donates so we can play but would anyone consider maybe $15 shipping??? You might get a lot more winners & takers that way.... I'm new here and I respect the rules so this is just my opinion... I have fun playing and learning-thank you to everyone who makes this possible!

I did charge a little extra this time due to tha fact that I have no shipping materials on hand. Last time I hosted, I charged $15 because I had the box on hand that a friend gave me.

I have never shipped eggs so I have no idea what it costs as far as materials. Was the prize 1 or 2 dozen barnyard mix?

1. But I'll probably add extra.

I don't think $20 is unreasonable. I have moved before and I do know that if you have to buy bubble wrap and boxes it can get pricey and then plus shipping on a dozen.... Like I said I am appreciative for everyone who donates and takes time to set this up because i enjoy playing. But if people think it is getting unfair i would have no objection sitting out. I have the same internet issues as everyone else-i am in a very small rural town that has well water, propane and only 1 internet provider that even offers service to my area. I had to get a landline because my cell doesn't get signal half the time and the other times I have to be sitting on one exact corner of my couch!
