This swap is more like a game then a normal swap.

So, who wants to play postcard poker?!

Here's what ya do:

Get two postcards. ( Can be store bought or hand made. These cards are SENDERS CHOICE. Please do not comment as "I would like this type of card" )

Get a deck of cards.

Take out 4 cards from the deck. Four totally random cards.

On the back of ONE postcard, you are going to write a short message to your partner. You will also write the four cards you picked out ( number and suit ie 3s , 6c , Kh, 2d. [s=spades, c=clubs, h=hearts, d=diamonds ] ) This will be 4 out of 5 cards for your partners hand of poker.

Send your postcard in a TIMELY fashion, as this is a game, not just a swap, they depend on getting your postcard!

Once you get your postcard, message me the FOUR CARDS you were assigned. I will not assign the 5th card until everyone is marked down with a hand.

One week after the swap date (or the last person has submitted their hand), I will take a deck of cards, and randomly draw one card. This card will be used for EVERYONE and will finish off their hand, determining what hand they get.

Once the winner is determined, we will send them their prize... Which is the second postcard we all have.

I will email everyone with the winners address, and you will send out their postcard asap. (With your SWAP NAME, and "PC POKER" on it.)

IF you have not gotten your postcard by the end of the swap, PLEASE message me. I will randomly draw 4 cards for you, and that will be your hand. But, I hope this does NOT happen, as everyone should be able to send two postcards. If you can not, please do not join.

The rules:

Newbies allowed with a fully filled out profile.

ABSOLUTELY NO 1's or 3's in the last 6 months! I do not want to take the chance of someone not getting their hand.

IF you don't think your postcard will make it to your partner on time, message me with your partners name and the cards you wrote on the postcard, and I will contact them.

Please message me with ANY questions that you have.


two postcards. one goes to partner with short message and 4 cards. one goes to winner. message me with 4 cards when receive.

you can do this now, as its not profile specific.

This sounds fun, what about a prize other than a second postcard?

FoxyMoron 07/26/2011 #

What a fun and creative idea! Can't wait to start playing! :-)

@takaratown , the winner will be getting (at this point) 15 postcards as a prize. I'd say thats a pretty good prize since if youre joining, you enjoy postcard. :D

this does sound fun!! Too bad though :( My town is so small we can't even buy postcards around here unless we drive an hour away!!! I need to learn how to hand make them so I can start joining all the wonderful postcard swaps!!

FragileBystander: Wow! I thought my town was bad with only about 3 places to buy postcards and they're all "Welcome to Wisconsin!" boring ones. You need postcard charity. LOL. I love doing handmade ones!

you are lucky if you can not find post cards in your town-lol. Really, we have touristy post cards all over, but so are the tourists. We can not enjoy our area at all.:(

I dealt my partner a better hand than I got! :P Can't wait to see the outcome. :)

cgoltz 08/15/2011 #

Has the outcome been posted yet and I missed it???

northqueen 08/15/2011 #

I have not heard anything about the outcome either. Everyone has sent theirs, but maybe all were not received-who knows.
