Greener pastures

We just anounced early beta signups for PrizeMojo. The next incarnation of coppergoose. Check it out!

Thanks for Playing!

The last egg will show up under Lucky Geese when the winner is chosen. Everyone who accepted the top-secret project beta invitation, below, will be notified by email as soon as the closed beta begins.

Special thanks to

And a big thanks to friends, goosers, and family for your great suggestions, help, and feedback!

Closing Letter

Goosers,

Coppergoose will be ending soon. :(

We have truly enjoyed sharing our magical, prize-laying goose and all of her friends with you and yours. To date we have given away close to 1000 prizes for the combined value of a very modest home or a very fancy car. We haven’t regretted a second of it. Unfortunately, coppergoose has not grown to the point where we can quit our day jobs, and our side income and time can no longer take the strain.

We want to thank you for sharing our dream of building a sustainable, fun, and safe place where people can get something for nothing with no strings and the best odds around.

Please be sure to use up your karma before coppergoose ends as we will begin to delete all user accounts after the last giveaway.

Cheers and, as always, good Luck!

Ivan VenOsdel, Paul Cross, and the Goose
Founders of coppergoose.com

P.S. All is not lost; we are working on a new top secret project that will hopefully involve all of the things you love about coppergoose but in a different form. As a parting gift, that doesn’t involve odds, we would like to extend a beta invitation to all goosers.

I just recieved the prize in the mail today and it was filled with a lot of cool stuff. To begin, there were a lot of unhatched copper eggs filled with coins and paper money. In the box, there were collector comic books, Star Trek Spock Collector figure, a DVD, awesome flashlight and a couple of 3' x 5' flags. I want to thank Coppergoose for the wonderful experience and the great win. Good luck in your new venture.

I have a theory on Shinies and I'm not tellin' LOL.


anonymous

The bird and ferret keep visiting me. It's like they don't even know coppergoose is over. :(


anonymous

It has been truly a great experience copper goose I will miss you and nope things go well with the beta


anonymous

Horace! Tell us what you've won!


anonymous

Thanks Coppergoose!


anonymous

Goodbye coppergoose. Thanks for all the good times. Anytime that I play 7 Wonders or Wits & Wagers I'll think of you.


anonymous

Sad to see the Goose go. This was one of my websites I checked every morning. Guess I will have to wait for my beta invite. I hope the next project is bigger and better.


anonymous

Ah, must have clicked it before and forgot then :P


anonymous

Kevin: It's a button right above the comments. When you click it, it says "Congrats! You're on the list." They'll email you when the new site is ready.


anonymous

Is there a link here that I am missing?


anonymous

It's been a fun time. I wish it wasn't leaving, but you gotta do what you gotta do.


anonymous

Thanks for everything, Coppergoose!


anonymous

I wonder if the ferret guy will give us discounts so our shinies don't go to waste.


anonymous

I'm going to miss you guys. It's been a lot of fun, and you will not be forgotten. Hopefully someday it will return but...your website has been most appreciated during the long run I've had with you guys! Also, will miss all the fellow contenders. You guys have been pretty cool


anonymous

Will be missed Goose, you will be missed

I've noticed a few comments here asking about the number of eggs we will give away before we finally cook the goose. We'll be giving them away more or less in the usual fashion until the "Coppergoose Countdown Timer" is complete (12 Days 19 Hours and 58 Minutes as of this writing). You will find the countdown timer at the top of our homepage (coppergoose.com). Thanks everyone and good luck!


anonymous

This site will be missed greatly. I'll never forget winning the retro entertainment system at Nanocon and the fun that this site has helped bring. P.s. I camt wait to see what you habe in store for us next


anonymous

Thank you for your dedication and great service. Ill forever keep the coopergoose writing pad ive received :)


anonymous

KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!one1


anonymous

Does anyone know when exactly they will close? 1 more egg? 3 more eggs? 5 more eggs? O.o?


anonymous

Really awesome site, and I am VERY sad to see it go T_T


anonymous

Thank you for sharing the goose's eggs with us!


anonymous

Go figure... just as I found out about you, you go and shut down. ;-) I'm behind you on the next one though! And best of luck. Starting up new things is a tough market.


anonymous

anonymous

:(((( i will miss my daily goose fix, i know i helped recruit 5-6 people who invited more wish it could have gone on. oh well i will enjoy the 7 prizes i won here.


anonymous

Thank you for being so generous.


anonymous

This makes me very sad, but I understand. I too will miss the goose. =( Thanks for everything!


anonymous

I won a wig. I wore it when I got it now it sits on my floor and I stare at it every day. Thank you copper goose. Your hair will live on my floor forever!!!


anonymous

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


anonymous

So sad to see you guys go. Checking the site was a vital part of my surf-the-internet-until-I'm-awake-enough-to-get-ready-for-work routine and it will be missed. Thanks for the Song of Ice and Fire calendar I won a couple of years back! So how many more giveaways do we get to spend our karma?


anonymous

Free stuff. No more. :(


anonymous

Any way for us to know when the last giveaway is? Sad to see the goose go. She will live on in my heart.


anonymous

Dear CopperGoose and her goslings, For "Old Farts" like me, it's like losing a friend::( I did win one prize... the perfect one for a newly elected judge, the statue of "Justinia" which sits in my courtroom. Your site was always one of the pleasures of my day. Whether you won or not the sense of humor and playfulness was truly a joy. I will miss you. My best wishes in all your future endeavors. Sincerely, Papa Teddybear


anonymous

But no...I haven't won more than 5 prizes yet. Sad to see you guys go but I signed up for your beta thingy. :) Here's to our future adventures.


anonymous

It's too bad, sounds like donations wouldn't help cover the costs :/


anonymous

You will be missed! Thank you for introducing me to more of the amazingly strange, useful, fun, crazy prizes the world out there has to offer! Always looked forward to the creativeness of the next egg and it's fantastic description! The idea behind Coppergoose was wonderful - too bad not more people/businesses took advantage of your adventure! Best of luck to you guys on your future project! Thank you for everything!


anonymous

Sad day. Me and the goose had some good times. Remember the Star Wars prequels on DVD? Or the fancy pen that can break glass and had a handcuff key? Oh the memories.


anonymous

Awwww!! This is sooo sad and I have not won also! I hate to see it go but im excited for the top secret project!


anonymous

Thank you guys soooooo much, I loved this site!


anonymous

I've enjoyed this site and the idea behind it immensely, and I'm sorry to see it go. Hopefully the future project that you hint at is based on the same idea. Good luck and I look forward to participating in your future ventures!


anonymous

Agreed. I'm sad to see it go, but thankful for the time that it ran!


anonymous

Thank You CopperGoose For All Of The Great Prizes. You Will Be Missed!!!!


anonymous

Sad day! :-( I won some good prizes here. I guess some of us were too selfish in keeping Coppergoose to ourselves...


anonymous

I genuinely appreciate the generosity you guys put into the site.


anonymous

This really was the best place in the world to get free things.


anonymous

you guys were awesome and thanks so much for working so hard to make this happen


anonymous

What!!! No!!! D=


anonymous

As an "old-fart" that was turned on to your site by one of my "tech-head" kids in Madison, SD; I just want to say thanks! I also never won, but it was fun trying to win, and reading your descriptions, and WOW for the variety of prizes you offered! Fair winds and following seas my friends, from an old Navy Chief! See you in your next endeavor.


anonymous

awww :( I tried to tell people about it... but don't think many people believed the amazingness of coppergoose.com *hugs* can't wait to see the top secret project


anonymous

Oh man! I had a lot of fun here between the giveaways, the shinies, and just how a lot of the descriptions were hilarious. I hope things work out for the best. Better stock up on real-life karma, for good measure.


anonymous

Thanks guys! I really enjoyed all the giveaways. Best of luck to future endeavors! Excited to see what you guys have in the works :)


anonymous

I never won anything the whole time I was here. Hehe.. I will miss the goose, very much.


anonymous

Thanks for a good run. I mean, it sucks that it's ending, but that doesn't diminish the fun that I've had here.
