Would anyone be interested in starting a retro junk box style package for the VCS. It's where someone sends out a package with a few games/accessories for the vcs, and when someone receives it, they take one thing out that they like and replace it with one thing from their collection. It goes through multiple people, and eventually it comes back to the original sender, hopefully with all different things than originally included. I'm prepared to send out a package with at least 10 games/items for the VCS to get it started to anyone who would want to take part. Honesty is a big part of this deal, obviously. Also, I will include a bunch of postal stamps so shipping won't be a problem for anyone. Anyone interested?

Cool I just wanna see if we can get a few more people. Like let's say there's 5 people, there'd be 5 items so it all gets swapped. That's the idea. It's just a cool way for people to trade and expand their collection. Also it's cool cuz it's like a surprise when it comes in the mail lol. I'd also recommend not including a game such as Air Raid or Atlantis II, for i'm sure those would be picked pretty fast lol.

How many freaking postage stamps are you going to send for shipping to not be a problem for anyone.

I hope the stamps don't hold more value than maybe a Pac-Man or E.T. cart that might find it's way in the box. LOL.
