Hi everybody! Our dear friend Alice is hosting a new swap and I am sponsoring a contest in it - woohoo what a little "gamer" I'm becoming!

Fun, fun, fun - and something else to do besides checking the forum here to see if anything new is going on. So, com'on, please?????? You know it can't be a crazy, difficult one if I'm playing in it - and the contest is EASY. Check it out!

Thank you Jeanne for posting my new swap. We are also having folks list some of their most wanted HF books so maybe soem will get played in the game.

I will have very flexible play rules around Christmas so don't worry about that .Love to have you play we had a great time in the last swap. Added lots to my WL.

Good Morning everyone,

Even if you don't want to play go check out the list books players are looking for I found some new ones I had never heard of and of course want now.

I joined, though I think I'm half crazy to sign up for my very first game during the holiday season...when things are already crazy enough!

I told Alice I had to pass on this one, but oh, what the heck!??  I'll be on a cruise Dec. 22 -25, so if she'll be patient with me through that time, I'll play.

You will get lots of help MK C! As you've probably seen - everybody was new at this once! Start by picking your favorite historical (or HF) character and PM that choice to Alice. Then you will need to deposit a credit (which will be returned to you when the game is over and the person who requested a book from you receives it). Then pick the books you want to offer ( whoever gets them chooses only one of them) but keep these to yourself until you are PM'd that it is your turn to reveal. Everything else that happens in the game, we can help you with as it goes along. How does that sound?

I will definately help you MK When it is your turn I will tell you want to do. If you want to play sign up in my game thread and send me a credit, and pm me what person/character you would like to play as.  If you want you can post most wanted list of books you would love to see revealed.  It is pretty simple once you start playing.
