Post Neonkee Swap 2008, Signups
The Stock Benefit Guild has annually run an event which we call the Neonkee Swap for a number of years. This is based on a real world event called a "Yankee Swap". For this event each person purchase a present and put it under the tree (send it to the Stock_Benefit account via a trade). People who have entered will each be assigned a number at random which choses the order of picking gifts. Whoever was given the number 1 will get to look at all the gifts (wrapped of course, no peeking) and choses one to unwrap. Then the person who has #2 get their turn. Then can choose to either open a new present and end the round, or swap their turn with one of the open presents, taking that present and giving that person the choice. There are a few restrictions on the swapping, in a given round, a present can only be swapped once, so if Joe swaps his turn for an open present, no one can take that present from him until the round ends by someone opening an unopened present. Also a given present may only be swapped for 3 time in the whole game, after which it lock to the person who took it the 3rd time.

At the very end of the game, After the person with the highest number has taken their choice, and eventually the last present has been unwrapped, the player who started with number 1, and had to open a present with no open presents available, is given one last chance to swap their present for any present in the game (that hasn't been locked) if they wish. This starts the last round which continue until no presents are available to be swapped or a person decides to keep their present.

Presents may be a single item or a collection of multiple items (hopefully related), the limitation is it must fit in a single trade (so 10 items max). When you are ready to send it, PM me to let me know and I will set up a link in stock benefit and PM you a link to it. If you wish, you may also suggest a wrapping for the present (I won't promise the elves will obey, but the might). People may also send suggestions for wrappings for people who don't specify the wrapping, or for presents the elves rewrap. Please do NOT just put your presents in a trade for me, as people might peek at them. Please try to be prompt on bidding with your presents as I suspect I will need the trade slots for other people.

Sign ups begin tonight and the game begins Monday night December 1st. We will run two separate swaps, one where the presents should have a minimum value of 25k (up to around 35k) and a second where the gifts should have a minimum value of 75k up to about 90k. You are allowed to sign up for both, but you then must of course submit 2 presents.

When it is your turn please try to be prompt about making you choices, as everyone will be waiting. I reserve the right to have you open a random present if you do not make a choice within 12 hours (I may raise it to 24 hours if signup are lower).

I will set up another thread for questions and will open up other for the actual swap

I'm taking my name off the list. Sorry, but I'm really busy these days. :(
And this will just make it easy for me to procrastinate on the important stuff. *unsure*
