I was thinking of hosting a APC Athon. Was wonder if there is a good week-end to have it. I really don't want Labor Day Week-end.
Would anyone want to play or are the athoned out.

Yes an apc athon is great. set one up for sure. question, do we take orders from the other players as to what they want to trade for??? Everybody seems to have specific decks

I was thinking of having it October Thursday (10th) thou Sunday (13th). How does that sound.

Usually you make cards and post them to the thread and make trades while the athon is on. There is a thread where traders have posted what kind of decks they are collecting.

I was thinking I was in the mood for one of these. I just got some shaped mini cards for something different - candy corn and heart cards.

I too have the date penciled in. How do we post what decks we are working on or needing, do we just post it in the thread on that weekend?

That will work or you can have a thread by itself, but I don't know how to do it. If someone knows how to do it would you let me know. I personally don't have special decks I just try to finish on and start another.

I want to get some back ground prepped before the marathon....

I'll be there. I have a pack of cards I got from the Adelaide Casino. They have been played with and have a 1/8 inch hole through them so they can't be used in the casino again. I am not sure how many times they have been used but they add some interest to the art. The cards look new and are the right size so can't wait to decorate them. The backs have the Adelaide Casino written on them. Interestingly, the Hearts are red, spades black but the diamonds are blue and the clubs green. I have a full pack so far so will take orders for themes if anyone is interested,.

Cathy1 so glad you have got a deck of cards so you can join in on the marathon. Don't worry about the hole in the middle you can cover that up.

Haha - I wasn't intending to deliberately cover up the hole - I thought it added interest.

I will be playing! I will have 2 teeth extracted on Friday afternoon. As it is in the front....I will not leave the house for sure. Is it ok, if I prepare some backgrounds on a deck of cards? Just because I will loose Friday most of the day :cry:

Hi ladies, so glad we are still on for this weekend. I am doing a special project with some of my apcs. I have been collecting Lord of the Rings atcs and apcs and am making a deck for my son. A REAL playing deck... for Christmas. I am gonna photocopy the cards on a really good copier and then cut them out and paste them on the front sides of the cards with the suits showing of course. Then he can use them to play cards with... which he probably never willl. But honestly, its so hard to come up with a gift for a thirty two year old who has more money than you!!! So I try. He does love the Lord of the rings, so I am sure he will love it anyway. If any of you want to add a card to my deck I wouldl love it! I am pushing the deadline here! I couldn't find any thread to post my deck on, as was advised earlier, so I think if you want to do one, just ask me... I have two suits finished and about half of the other suits stilll needed. If anyone wants me to make anything specific, please pm me. I keep all sorts of books around, just for this sort of thing...

Oh so sorry Angelmuz, Lord of the Rings....no thank you.I tried one movie once, and stayed on for less than 10 minutes. If you would like anything else....Winnie the Pooh :>))))
I would like to have a deck of christmas/winter themes, and I will check everyone's wishes on the other thread.
