You are going to enjoy the Games Cindy, and don't worry the regulars are very helpful.

Each swap is different with allowing duplicates and it should state if they are not allowed in the first post where the hostess has listed all the rules. If it isn't, you might want to post in the game itself asking the hostess to clarify, others might be wondering the same thing.

If it is a basic elephant swap, when you are stolen from you have two choices, steal from someone else or ask a player that hasn't revealed to come reveal their book (post it in the game and PM the other member). In games with more than one round of stealing, you will sometimes have limbo books to choose from too. If you take a limbo book, you PM the next player on the game board to come play.

Once the game is all done, everyone PMs addresses to the person who's book they won. If you take a game out early, you PM your address at that point and if someone takes your book out early, they should be PMing you with their address shortly after winning the book.

Have fun! And don't be affraid to ask questions in the game or PM the hostess, they've all been great gals and guys that I've played with.

Cindy, don't hesitate to ask anything in the swap you're in. Like Melanie said, the regulars are very helpful! :P

We like new blood over there so we love to answer questions! I'm still on my swap hiatus (but I'm in three virtual boxes still) but I look forward to being in some swaps with you when I start up again!!
