Alright, well I will just put you on the list assuming you will make orange any day now.
That, or I will keep asking questions to get your post count up!
Does that work for you? ;)

Yes, that works for me. :thumb:

So it's $17 about to send it out? I might be able to do that... I'll talk to my parents about it. I have some cool retro stuff that I've picked up and have some things that might be interesting.

 

Any word Leo?

 

Once I hear from Leo, I think I will start the box moving. And if someone sees the fun and wants to sign up, I can always add them to the list.

So Far I have:

 

Rows (TX)

Rick (OR)

StormSurge (CT)

Me (FL)

 

even if we don't get more, it still will be fun and should move fast.

I have the following working systems:
2600 (I could really use some paddles that work though!)
NES

Genesis

N64

Dreamcast

 

Current systems are 360 & XBO.

 

And as much as I love having the actual carts, I love the ephemera too. I have a stack of manuals, but could always use more. I have only one boxed 2600 game.  :(

I'm in Connecticut & work within walking distance of a post office. The box won't stick around long with me.

Orange achieved!   

Now to get a few more folks in on it!

I'm totally in on this!  Sounds fun, I'm in NY.  As a kid I would sign things (like my homework) like this, so I think it's time to bring it back.

I wanted to add a small addition to the rules.

When you refill the box, try to keep a variety (For example, make sure there are games for at least 2 or 3 different systems inside)

I want to make a "Before" video before I send it out. If I have time to do it tonight, I hope to send the box out to Leo tomorrow. If not, it should go out Monday or Tuesday. And if my count is correct, Leo has 48 various items to choose from.

The box has been sent.

It should get to Leo on Tuesday or Wednesday.

BTW, if you pack the box and have some weird shape gaps inside, plastic Walmart bags work great to fill them in and protect the stuff from moving around.
