If you listened to the latest rendition of TCR (episode 254) then you may know that I have the pleasure of drumming up interest for the "Retro Junk Box."

This is something that the Nintendo Retrocast did back in the day as well as the Retro League. Basically, I will kick this off by filling a medium size USPS flat rate box (see the picture) with all sorts of nerd paraphernalia, anything from MTG to video games (see pictures below for examples). The idea is to go through your stuff and pick out nerdy items you really don't want and put it in the box. On the flip side you also get to pick out anything in the box to keep for yourself. In many respects it relies on the honor system not to overdue it. Then that person would mail the box to the next individual on the list. We would need at least 5 people to really get things going but the more the merrier. Unfortunately, only those with US addresses will be able to participate as the shipping rate for the flat rate box changes outside the United States and I want to try to keep shipping costs fair.  Ideally, each person would take a photo of what they received and post it in the forums.  Keep things PG. If you are interested please post below so I can get a head count.  Also know that you must be willing to share you address...obviously.  Questions and comments are welcome too.

How exactly are we handling the mailing information? Would the next person directly message you with an address since you currently have the box?

So what I am thinking is that I will have all the addresses (I will need to plan out the route) and then I will email the appropriate address to the person who is to send out the box next.

Example: I start off by shipping the box to "Person A" then "Person A" emails me that he has received the box (or posts in the forum) then I will email the address of "Person B" to "Person A" so the box may continue on the route.

BTW - Shipping cost $6.70 per person

I did stop at the local game store and picked up a few games for this...

TecmoBallz

If I forgot anyone please let me know.  If you would like to participate please let me know.

Sweet!
It looks like USPS has increased their rates.  The medium size flat rate box will cost $14.35 per person. 
If you are okay paying the price of admission, please email me your address at hemrawc--att--g-m.ail dot komm so I can plan the route.
I plan on shipping the box to the first recipient on Saturday February 16th.  That should give everyone time to get me your info.
If you are new to the thread or your name is not yet on the list, it's not too late.  Just send me an email!

Alrighty folks, the Retro Junk Box version 1.0 was mailed out yesterday (22 Feb 2019).  I still don't have TecmoBallz's address.  But here is the send order as of now:
Hemrawc --> Dezm101 --> Cendoo --> CF --> SagaSaga --> [TecmoBallz?] --> [Any other late additions] --> Hemrawc

Feel free to post pictures of what you pull out on the forums.  Thank you for your participation and have fun!
