    I keep seeing these super fun games on instagram live sales and wanted to post one here to try out. The game will play like a normal gift swap game but I will be providing all the gifts.

    Rules
    1. It is free to enter and sign up will open on Tuesday, 8/6 at 8 A.M. PST.
    2. To enter, you must have participated in a RAK or Zap in the past year here on DPF and have at least 5 positive trade feedback.
    4. Every entrant will win a prize.
    5. Please only sign up if you can participate actively for the next week or so.

    How To Play
    1. I will post 10 envelopes with the numbers 1-10 on them. There will be a pin inside of each one and you won't know what is in them until they are opened. I will send a photo of the pins and envelopes to a mod before the game begins.
    2. The spots will be randomized by a mod.
    3. The first person will select an envelope. I will open the envelope and post a photo of what is inside.
    4. The next person either has the option of stealing an opened pin or opening a new envelope.
    5. Pins can only be stolen twice before they are out of play.
    6. Play will continue until all 10 people have pins and a turn.
    7. The last turn will go to the first selected player who can either pick any pin still in play or keep their own.
    8. Each player will be given 12 hours to take their turn. If you go over 12 hours, you forfeit your turn and I will pick for you using a randomizer.
    9. Every player gets mailed out there pin when the game is over and hopefully had a fun time playing.

    @starry_solo @Ksnuggles

    Can one of you hold a spot for a randomizer and/or let know if this type of free game isn't allowed? Thanks.

    I’ve been really slacking on my zapping (and trading) recently, so I’m not going to participate. But I wanted to comment to say that this is a fantastic idea!

    I just saw a zap you sent in the zap thread though! I haven't done enough zapping either and I don't think I have enough trade feedback but this looks like a great game!

    Sadly no... I have been bedridden most of the end of July and start of August because of my hip. I am in need of a hip replacement but finding a surgeon is hard since I am a larger girl. So I have been hobbling around the last few weeks.. o just hope that the new surgeon I see on Aug 27 is willing to help me.

    Eh, I’m still not zapping as much as I’d like! I try to include a zap or something cute in every package I send when it’s possible, but it’s still nothing compared to what some of the others on this forum are able to accomplish. Plus, I’ve had some good luck already with summerskin’s randomizer opportunities! So I’d rather pass the opportunity on to someone else. :)

    All right then, but don't compare your acts of kindness to anybody else's on this forum! No matter how many you or anybody else does they're equally appreciated.

    @Ajk @SoraPandora @Tokaji

    I will be opening sign ups tomorrow at 8 AM PST. I will post right on the dot and the first 10 people to post after I open it will get spots.

    @Ksnuggles
    I will be adding an 11th spot just for you if you don't snag one of the 10 as you do so much for all us with running the RAK. I am sorry to hear you've had a tough few weeks. Sending you big hugs and healing vibes.

    Umm, yeah... You make all the fantastic badges for anyone and everyone! Much appreciated by all of us! That alone is a super generous thing to do!

    And summerskin, this really is a wonderful and sweet thing to offer/run.

    This is for both of you:
