Welcome to the Chain of Generosity directory.


BGG Chains of Generosity are Geek lists where a member offers a gift (typically a game) to the community, randomly selects a recipient from the respondents, sends it to the winner, and the recipient starts the process anew.

For a historical overview, here is the original CHAIN started by Unixrevolution.

Chain creators have gotten creative over the years and have created chains to specific tastes and and have altered the rules to create a meta-game or even community building experiments.

This directory seeks to be a one-stop listing of all current public chains on the geek.

This directory is not meant to be a chain in itself. If you'd like to add to the directory, please comment below!

Enjoy!

The original Chain Exchange Geeklist in it's current incarnation championed by Unimatrix. Still going strong!

International, shipping options vary.

The Mystery Box Chain... my personal favorite. Why? Don't know, do ya?

This chain the giver is meant to LOAD a box up with many games and only give a few clues as to it's contents.

The Chosen One: In this chain, when you win, people look at YOUR want list and post games from it specifically for you. It's a really fun concept.

US shipping only.

An all European chain list.

This looks like 11 chains running concurrently on the same list.

Very cool... if you're there.

Originally the European RPG Chain, this has been replaced by the European RPG - Chain of Generosity II. Regardless, this is THE chain dedicated to RPGs with European shipping only.

It's currently quite active.

A chain dedicated to games that can be played by one person.
Plenty of activity.

A chain starting in 2O08 going off and on. Currently it seems to have been paused for about a year.

edit: No longer in use, but a good historical list of chains. This is not complete but it shows you how how the chains evolved and how cool this community has been over the years.
