The chances are good. I picked the first person to receive the box at random-with dice.

I really wanted to send it to a friend at first but felt that it was the wrong way to do this. Everyone gets to choice who they want to sent the box too whatever way they want to pick the person. Maybe you were the only person some has traded with. Maybe your name is the only one who they still have an e-mail with your address on it. Maybe someone was greatful for the catwoman promo and wants to send it your way. All these factors(I hope) play into this!

Now if only that darn box will arrive at it's destination!! I want to hear what they think!

Out of the 30-odd addresses I've kept I know who I'd send it to, lol! I haven't got it, maybe never will, but I know who I'd send it to if I did.

It's like with Xmas. I'm not fussed on what I receive, half the time I don't want/need anything, I'm usually more concerned whether I have enough things for others.

I'd laugh if it was (accidentally) sent by Surface mail, lol! Stickers have been known to fall off. As I recently discovered with a recent trade. Not only that, Quarantine thought it was suss and kept it, opened it, enclosed a brochure then sent it to me. Pity they didn't give me a card instead Big Grin Still waiting for the Customs Detector Dog Unit to open something of mine and put a card in there like the one I posted about a few months back Razz

I'll shut up now.

No problem. If everyone had a go at me instead of having a go at other people we would not have a problem on the board.


What am i on about? Everyone does have a go at me. Big Grin

Great idea! I don't trade a lot (especially lately), so I'm not sure it will ever make it to my doorstep. But still I look forward to seeing where the box goes. And someone please send the box to wolfie! Imagine the incessant whining if no one does. Big Grin

Was Mouse-ster really "picking on you" by making an accurate prediction?

Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

I suppose you'll chalk that up as another hit.

This is a very fun and clever idea!

I wonder what the odds are that this ends up being the most viewed thread this month? Wink

I wonder where the box is now?
Has anyone had it yet?

Way off topic
Children, Children..... You must behave now, picking on one person is not fair.
Just remember Wolfie, what comes around, gs around....

Went to the mailbox today to see what it held after delivery! Lo and behold, there sat a small box that could possibly hold 100 cards. Could this be the famous box Barrett mailed out.....? Afterall, he has my address! Eagerly, I opened it up, hoping to discover the blessed cardboard contents.

CRIMINY!

It was a small metal orange juicer sent as some unknown kitchenware promotional. Frown

Willgull is still hoping and looking!


I had the same thing!!!!
I went to the mail box on Friday lunch time, and there was a key, for me to open the extra box hole at he bottom.
I was sssoooo excited thinking I was the first person to get it.
By low and behold, a parcel from my grandparents in the UK.....
But you never now, never say never etc.........

Okay...enough of the suspense already. I was the first to receive the box! Elephant Thanks, Barrett! I feel honored to be the first recipient.

I took five cards from the 100 (I may take more!), and I'm replacing one of them with a costume card!!

The box will be mailed tomorrow to the next lucky recipient which is......Nope....Can't tell!

Great idea! When I received Barrett's box, I had no idea what it was. Luckily, he alerted me to read User Announcements, which I must admit is one forum I've seldom read. Twak

You might be right about this being the most viewed thread, even though the thread was started late in the month.

This is getting interesting thinking about how the mixture of cards will change as the recipients change, too.

Hello Tony,
What cards are in the box?
Is there a mixed selection of a lot, or just one set etc....
Thanks again
