    i do realize donations are optional, but of course i plan to donate! guess i'll just wing it on the amounts.

    Usually I give them whatever I have on hand - sometimes that means a fiver for a single cookie, or a $20 for a few cookies. I try not to be greedy as far as depleting the brigadier's stock, especially since I know the money is going to a good cause anyway.

    yeah, that's exactly my problem. normally i would do exactly that, but since i'm planning on getting a lot of cookies from a lot of different people (totally going for the blackout bingo), i need to pace myself.

    question for brigadiers: what would you say is an appropriate (or at least a typical) donation for cookies? i certainly don't want to be cheap, but i also plan on getting lots and lots of cookies! trying to plan how much cash to have on hand.

    If you're going for blackout, the card may assist you in deciding how much you want to bring for donations. Cards will be emailed tomorrow.

    Thanks! Good to know that we'll be separating you from your last paycheck. :) I'll be sure to sit right next to you with a big bag full of cookies.

    I about had a heart attack when I saw my card until I saw that donations were cumulative. Totes going for the blackout victory, although I don't think I actually stand a chance of winning since I lose a third of my day to Enforcer shifts :P

    IT'S FOR THE KIDS OKAY

  • aerynkellyaerynkelly nothing to see here, move along Registered User regular
    Yes, donations are totally cumulative, and it doesn't have to be just your money... If say, you had a group of friends pool donation money to get a piece of the grand prize basket.... ;)

    Card printed! The Cookie Brigands managed to avoid me all weekend last year, but this time, justice will be served! Or, cookies will be served. One or the other. I forget.

    WHEW! Good to hear the donations are cumulative. I've got cookie cash, but not THAT much cookie cash. :P Hm... so how do the brigaders know how much we've donated? Like, if we get the $5, $10, and $15 square, and then we donate $10 more, they'll know to give us the 25$ square, right?

    I recommend players follow and use the #cookiebrigade hashtag on twitter, I know several brigadiers will be following it as well and using it.

    The squares will be marked off, and I've instructed brigadiers not to cover the $ amount so that they can tell what the next donation amount would be (so yes, it would be $25 in your scenario)

    I will also be using the hashtag #paxbingo to make announcements during the game (such as winners.)

    If you have questions or need to reach me while at PAX, you can PM me here, email me, or tweet me.

    This was a great idea....had a blast finding all the yummy cookies!!!!

  • aerynkellyaerynkelly nothing to see here, move along Registered User regular
    I'm really glad people had fun - it's kinda crazy that 20 people out of thousands were able to find and enjoy our noms.

    Clearly this was our first go at this and we learned a lot, so there will be improvements in the next go.
