Description: Borrowed this idea from @fullsteampowell Had so much fun with this last time and would love to do again. So here goes.

For those who participated in the past rounds hosted by @fullsteampowell or myself you know the drill. If you got a bonus card last time and the sender is in this one, you can return the favor. Otherwise, let it ride!

For the newcomers: This is intended as a bit of a game / social experiment in lieu of the traditional "random post card swap".

Here's the twist: You'll be sending a postcard each to two partners, but you'll only be assigned one. You will choose your second partner from the list of people in this swap. The idea is that everyone will receive at least one postcard, but some people will receive two or more, depending on which people get chosen as partners. As far as the postcards themselves go, you can send whatever you want. Ads, handmade things, pieces of cardboard with an address and stamp... Whatever you have on hand. Just make sure to include the swap name and your SwapBot handle so you can be rated properly. It would also be a good idea to indicate on the second postcard that you're an unassigned partner. please do not join if u are not ok with your address being shared with all in group If you receive one of the extra cards, you can respond however you see fit. I recommend sending a brief "thank you" message, but it's up to you.

If this swap works out, I'll do another one and you can reciprocate if you feel like it. If you have any questions about this swap, feel free to comment or message me. When you go to pick out your bonus person (s) please send me a message and I will give you their address.

Borrowed from @fullsteampowell

Please have at least five completed and rated swaps before joining. Thanks.

How do we get the address of the unassigned partner. Only the host gets access to all the info, right?

I send out a list of all addresses once swap is assigned. From there you pick your random person and send an “unassigned” postcard to them

When do we receive the list of addresses, as I would like to send both out at the same time?
