Yep -- come join the fun -- this looks to be a simple game -- none of that doing the limbo with your buddy on an elephant that may or may not be virtual -- though there's still some kind of daisy chain and stealing and revealing -- but I'm assuming that Alice will nudge us when it's our turn and give us guidance, if not step-by-step instructions.

I will help out all the new players, and tell you what you have to do.

So, no limbo? Now I'm disappointed.

However, I'll play! ... I checked with Linda ... she will play vicariously through my participation. 

I'll announce my intentions on the 'real' game thread & send Alice a credit.

I am going to close Sign ups Thursday morning around 7:30 Eastern so if you are on the fence about joining you have some time.

C'mon folks -- look at this pretty daisy chain -- I have no idea what this has to do with the HF swap but apparently it does -- so don't miss out -- join the fun!

I have found some wonderful books languishing on my TBR shelves to tempt people with ... but more than that, I am very excited to see what super-long-awaited-for book Linda & I are going to be able to grab hold of !

At last count, there were 25 people signed up ... it's going to be a great game! And - the HF Forum appears to be well-represented, but we can always use more.

My sign ups are closed for this game, but I will run another one in the winter.
