Not everyone is aware of the US RPG Chain of Generosity +2 but if you live in the US, it's a great way to give away things you don't want and get things you do want. There are 8 chains at the moment. If you win a chain, you then post something of yours to give away to the next person.

Right now in the chains you could win some pretty unusual and interesting stuff.

Save vs. Death #102: Pick one of several games/supplements including Alien Module 1: Aslan, Universe of Babylon 5 and a couple of Gurps Castle Falkenstein items

Blasted Heath #110: Potentially choose several items including Game Master's Toolkit for Warhammer FRP 3rd edition, some Firefly/Serenity items and We B4 Goblins! among other things.

High Level #91: features your choice of several things including Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein and a collection of Swashbuckling Adventures books among other items.

Helm's Deep #126: offers Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition, Fiasco, or a box of old Dragon magazines

Oh The Horror #104 offers a medium-sized box with a bunch of items of your choice from Star Wars to World of Darkness and a bunch of indie items.

Star Siege #111: is similar -- a medium sized box of books of your choice ranging from Eberron and Savage World to Icons and other indie games.

To Boldly Go #86: offers your choice of Deep Carbon Observatory or Hyperborean Mice.

Fields of Glorantha #129:offers your choice of several items including Apes Victorious and Old School Adventures Accessory AX2: d30 Sandbox Companion

The chain thrives on the idea that one gamer's trash is another gamer's treasure. You mark yourself "in" for any items you like, then there's a random draw for a winner and the winner gets that item and posts something they'd like to get rid of.

It's pretty simple and a lot of fun.
