Do you know about the games forum here at PBS?  It's not for video gamers--it's mostly for games featuring books!  Just like your office might do a white elephant ornament swap at Christmas, those of us that play in the Games forum do similar swaps with books!  It's a great way to get wishlisted books faster, and to be introduced to new authors/titles/genres!  I've had fun adding to my wish list with all the great offerings that have been posted in different games.

Now is a GREAT time to check out the Games forum and try your hand at a game designed to introduce Newbies to the Games forum.    One of our Games Moderators, Rhonda, has started a new game designed just for new Gamers.  Check out her game here:  

***Give It a Try *** ---- Newbie Elephant Swap!!

Once you have read the rules, come join us!  It's lots of fun!  We will have lots of regulars in these swaps as well to help the new gamers along and answer any questions that may arise.  Come check it out and JOIN US!

I second Shelia's sentiments.  I love the games and the friends I have made through the games.

I was hesitant at first to join the games thinking that they sounded way too complicated.  They are not and now I love them.  Come give them a try.  Everyone is very helpful and will answer any questions you may have.  I promise that it will expand your WL and you will make lots of new friends.

I like the tea swap.  Like the others, it's very friendly.
