    TAG! You're It Art Postcard Madness

    This is an on-going game. There really isn't any point to TAG! You're It, but if everyone plays fair each of us should receive several very cool art postcards.

    I have tweaked the guidelines to clarify some points...

    Player Guidelines:

    The Player addy list will be kept in Google Documents under TAG! You're It Post Card Madness. It will be a shared document by invitation ONLY.

    UPDATE: 7/2/2010: From this point out, the google doc will be "managed" by the group. If someone wants to play then they'll need to be added to the google doc by someone already playing, and if someone wants to drop they'll be able to take themselves off the list.

    By default, I still "own" the document, so if you have problems you would contact me and I'll try to resolve them. If you can't open the Google doc, PM me or email the request to crazycat66@gmail.com

    The term "art postcard" refers to any postcard which has been altered or otherwise decorated. Postcards can also be handmade, as long as the postcard can be mailed. The amount of effort you want to put into the postcard should reflect they type of postcard you'd like to receive yourself. Include your user name somewhere on the postcard.

    ALL POSTCARDS MUST FOLLOW USPS GUIDELINES AND HAVE THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF POSTAGE.
    If you are unsure if your art postcard is can be mailed or if it requires additional postage, please take it to a Post Office and ask. Nothing sucks like having to go down to the Post Office to pay .3 cents postage due, but worse is knowing that many postcards end up in the dead letter office because USPS doesn't have to forward postcards with incorrect postage.

    Post cards are not considered First Class mail if they don't display First Class Postage. If you have questions about this, consult the USPS website or go to your local Post Office.

    INTERNATIONAL POSTCARDS REQUIRE ADDITIONAL POSTAGE!!

    When you are tagged, it is important you #1 -- Mail out your postcard WITHIN 7 DAYS and #2 Post in this thread to announce you receive a postcard AND when you mailed out a postcard.DON'T ANNOUNCE WHO YOU ARE ABOUT TO TAG!Each time you are tagged, you select someone from the list and send them a postcard. To keep the game moving forward, do not "tag back" -- that is, don't mail a postcard back to the person you were just tagged by.

    New people can join whenever they want.

    This goes on until everyone has requested their name dropped from the Player list.

    "Catch(up) 31"
    If a month has 31 days, then on the 31st day of that month, all current players may -- without being tagged -- send a postcard to another player who either 1) hasn't been tagged or 2) hasn't been tagged in the previous 30 days. This is an optional maneuver in the game and intended to "spread the love"


    PLAYER LIST:

    • Patti

    • NiteOwl

    Only problem I can see, is how do we know who we can tag, if the list isn't posted anywhere?

    I think she'll post a players list- just not all the addresses. I may be wrong but that's what I figured.

    Count me in. So far I have everyone's address.

    Can anyone elect herself IT? Or must one wait to be tagged first?

    What happens if circumstances are such that you can't send a postcard immediately - or if you get twelve tags in a week?

    Hmmm...in case of illness or natural disaster, I think you could post here to say you'll be mailing out late. I picked a 7 day turn around for two reasons: 1) short turn around mean the game is more exciting 2) hopefully when a person gets "tagged" they'll try to tag someone else quickly rather than letting it sit around and be forgotten.

    The chances of you getting more than one postcard in a week a pretty slim. Twelve postcards would be some kind of Twilight Zone episode... I made up a graphic to show how it should work, but it came out tiny.

    Did I ever! You are the inspiration for this game! I got that postcard and thought "I should send one back..." then my wicked little brain got perk-u-lating and this is what happened...

    So if I'm it now, I can look at the list and tag someone now....right? Or send a pm with the link about this to someone new? Then they would PM you that they want to play.

    sounds fun if I can get it figured out - my brain is still foggy from the flu - so we know we are tagged when we get a post card? then we run off and tag someone? But we don't tell them....

    i don't get it -- how do you tag someone?

    here's how we do it on the forums at postcrossing -- someone tags the first person by simply posting "tag firstperson" and then sends them a message saying "i just tagged you; can i have your address?" and then sends them a postcard. then someone else tags *that* person by posting underneath them, etc etc. it's all pretty straightforward -- you send the person above you a card, then you get a card from the person below you.

    When the game begins, the cat is IT.

    She selects someone to tag and sends a postcard to that person who now becomes the new IT who then selects a name from the list in post one and sends a postcard to that person who then becomes IT.

    If at any point, IT doesn't have the address of the person she's tagging, she PMs CrazyCat who will give it to IT.

    When you sign up, you give your address to CrazyCat and she keeps the list. She doesn't share your address with anyone who isn't on the list.

    Oh good, you got your pirate kitty! Glad you liked it.

    Did you recognize that it was the one from AFA and I never sent it?
