Does anyone remember the Chick Lit Virtual Box we did a few years ago? Is anybody planning another one? That was the only swap I've ever done, but I had so much fun with it!

I wasn't on PBS at that time but may I ask how this swap worked?

Well, everybody started out putting two books in the "box". It was really just a list that we passed around. We also deposited two credits, to cover if you shipped an "unpostable" or didn't ship at all. At the end of the game, you get your credits back if there were no problems. We took turns taking books out of the box. For every book you took out, you had to put one back in. For example, if it was my turn and I chose three books, I had to replace them with three more. At the end of the round, everyone would ship the books that had been chosen. It was a lot of fun!

Ok, I'll study up on how to start a game, and maybe after Christmas?

I just joined my first virtual box and it seems like fun.  Put me on the list to let me know when you start this one.  I'd be willing to help with it if you need any.

Sounds fun, would it be posted in "Games?"  Then more people could join!

Well, I have been checking in on rules concerning hosting a game. I haven't been active in the games forum for the past three months, so it appears I don't qualify. However, if someone else does qualify, I believe there are enough of us interested to make it a little fun, and I'd be glad to help in whatever way possible.
