What's up with not accepting used items? I'm sure a lot of people have used games that they would be more than happy to donate to this cause instead of or in addition to donating money, and many people would be happy to receive them. Certainly they are more likely to be donated than brand new games. Seems like a poor choice.

Damn, did you donate $100?

....

....*looks at wallet* Err, don't count on me to match it, although I do plan on contributin' near the end of the month!

And I kinda agree with Rocko 'bout the used game deal; lots of gamers keep their games in great condition, and if you're only acceptin' new games, that means that we'll probably have to go out and buy somethin' to donate, right?

Well to be honest, it does kinda come across rather chintzy. I know whoever would donate a used item would still be doing a good thing. But would you guys be as excited about entering the contest* if the prize list consisted of used copies of video games .. most of which would probably be a few months old .. as opposed to brand new and sealed stuff?

*not that the contest should be your primary motivation for donating

The contest should not be the primary motivation for donating, but let's be honest. How much money do you think the site would've raised last year if it didn't get tons of blog coverage due to the contest, which had over 80 prizes or something crazy like that. That money was not from CAG members only, and would not have reached that high if it weren't for the contest. IMO, game donors are doing just as great of a service as the cash donors, as they are giving people who wouldn't usually donate a reason to.

This is for a charity. And it's clear that last year's format worked well. I'd say you shouldn't fix what's not broken. This isn't a time for anything other than gaining the most money as possibly for Child's Play, and used game donations certainly drive that.

Don't worry if you can't match my donation. I couldn't donate what I wanted to last year since I was in school full time so I wanted to make up for it this year.

We did not accept used games last year either. We had 50 prizes last year...it's just not necessary.

cheapy ever considered some kind of a card that you could print for christmas that says something to the regard of a donation has been made in your name to childs play and then an explination of what the charity is.... just a thought ... I HATE my inlaws and have decided this year to just give them a i made a donation in your name kind of thing.... I would love it to be childs play... they would just hate that ..... :D of course i'll pony up a personal donation as well :D

just a thought from a much hated daughter in law hehe.

In for $5. My fiancee is out of work because of the economy, so $500 gift card would really help pay for some gifts for the holidays.

I feel bad I couldn't donate more, but times are tight.

But there's always room for more prizes, right? - I'd be willing to donate a few used games.
Btw, expect my donation within a week or so.

That's my line of thinking. It could only help. I know I personally have one or two games I could pony up.

Either way, I'm sure I'll throw something in the pot at some point.

Can't afford a cash donation right now, but tossed a game in the pot for somebody to win. Happy CAGsgiving, everyone :)

As a side note, though, I agree with the folks who are advocating that used games be considered as prizes. Perhaps not for the most current systems, but I do have a couple nice PSX games that you'd be hard-pressed to find new. I'd be happy to offer them up, but I don't know if they qualify as "classic". Perhaps a "if you can't find it new at Gamestop, it's okay" policy?

Last year I said I would donate, but ultimately did not...
This year I might throw in a game, and at least $5

Also, for the whole "why no used games" argument,
I'd agree that we should only accept brand new games
If we accepted used games, I'm sure at least some of them would be in piss poor condition. I don't think we want people just clearing out their crap either.

Concerning used games...I can see reasons to support both points of view.

Some might view used games as too chintzy for a raffle (god bless consumerism) but to help out the CAG community and spread some brotherly(& sisterly) love, how about setting up some sort of SECRET SANTA swap?

I haven't been around much as of late, to pressed for time to play the backlog of games I already garnered through this site, but I sure do appreciate the CheapAss community.

If I could make another suggestion? My dad used to always throw a rocking x-mas party in late January, early February every year. Why? Because everyone has other commitments over x-mas plus Mainers need a reason to celebrate starting in about February of any given year.

How about a post x-mas secret Santa so as not to distract from the fundraiser?

Keep up the great work, my best to Cheapy, Wombat, the Shipwrecks, and Speedy and their families.

I was wondering to myself the other day when this would be starting. Always a great cause and worthy of our dollars. We save through this site all year it's nice to give some of that back every now and again. I'll be donating for sure and luckily i've got plenty of time since i've been spending to much on gifts lately lol.
