I'm sure all of you by now know about the Newbie Sampler Thread.
I was thinking though, that's a one-time deal to help introduce new botl's to the board, help them get their first Trader Rating and meet a senior BOTL in the process - which is all well and good, but I've seen a number of happy traders come back in looking for a second trade. They're always directed to the Marketplace to look for another trade, but until now there's been nothing to facilitate that.
If there's sufficient interest, I'll coordinate a sort of non-noob blind trading thread. What I was thinking is doing anonymous pairings, set up by pm. Trades will be a minimum of FIVE cigars, and an absolute maximum of TEN. The trade can also include ONE non-cigar item, up to a maximum value of $20, but it is not mandatory. My idea here is for the entire trade to be able to fit in a small flat rate box to try and keep costs low.
Anyone interested in doing a blind trade, please send me a PM including your address (thus the whole "blind" trade part) and I'll pair you up with another BOTL for some fun and destruction . Post your DC's or taunts in the thread, as well as pics of any demolition received - and above all, don't forget to leave TR for your partner.
