Hey folks! It's summer (at least it is here in the northern hemisphere), and I wanted to compile a list of things that are currently going on around the 'Geek that you may have missed! If there's something else going on that you know of (contests, auctions, initiatives, etc.) please do comment so that we can get the word out!

There's still a few days left to submit an entry to the Summer Blockbuster Adventure Design contest! If you've got an idea for some kind of RPG scenario inspired by a summer blockbuster movie (like, for example, Jaws), drop by the linked thread for the details. This contest has prizes! Last day to submit entries is July 7th.

If you've got some unloved or unwanted RPG items, come on over to the Dog Days of Summer Math Trade! RPGGeek math trades are a great way to turn your unplayed games into something fresh and exciting. If you've never done a math trade, it's super easy (and fun), so check out the linked thread for information or to ask questions. The last day to submit items for the trade is July 10th.

For those of you who enjoy gift exchanges, the 2017 Unbirthday gift exchange is live now! This is exactly what it sounds like - an opportunity to give something to another RPGGeek user, and receive something in return. All the information you could ever want is in that thread - and if it isn't, please feel free to ask questions. Registration closes on July 20th.

This isn't a contest, but it is an ongoing bit of fun: the RPGGeek Travelling Chapbook is a kind of RPG chain letter that is currently making its way around the world, receiving contributions from RPGGeeks as it goes. There's no sign-up, per se, but if you're interested in participating, come on over to the linked thread to find out more!

And for other ongoing challenges, see this thread!

Please feel free to pass these links on to your own corners of the site - I know not everyone reads the news, so it's great to have these things get around by word of mouth as well!
