  • Summer Swap (Players and rules)

    SWAP RULES (by John Stapleton)
    --
    Players sign up for the game 'VV swap' (the umpire can set a maximum number of players, usually between 40 and 50).

    One player nominates themself as 'organiser' and prepares for their role, which is different from the other players.

    Each player then compiles a CD of tunes they think other players will like (can be a straight compilation, can be a mix, it doesn't matter), designs a flashy sleeve (or not, doesn't matter) and burns as many copies as there are players.

    Each player then posts their burnt copies plus an amount for postage (to be determined by the 'organiser') to the organiser's address, by a certain date, which is decided by the organiser.

    Organiser then assembles the incoming CDs into new piles to be posted back out, so that every participant receives one of each person's CD.

    Organiser posts out CDs, everyone receives 'n-1' CDs of new material (where 'n' is the number of players), everyone's very happy.

    a couple of ground rules:
    1) track lists - no 'secret squirrels'
    2) no hair metal.

    Just a couple of things to add:

    Don't use Jewel Cases... stick to the floppy plastic or card sleeves.

    Send the CD's in a good enough envelope that can be re-used to send them back.

      Or include in your package a separate self-addressed padded envelope that your new set of CDs can be sent back in.

            ... has any thought about us lonely, sad types who only have C90's to play with...

            If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

              I'm in Ireland actually.
              Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                I don't mind duplicating CDs for those who can only do tapes, but I can't do tape-CD transfers.

                  I can Sie, if you are really wanting in I could convert a c90 (actually it'd need to be a C80) to a CD and then Brother Logic could dupe them for you.

                    Perhaps it might be time to 'go digital' Sie?

                            true, true, true - I'm renting a flat at the mo until I find my feet down 'ere in the fookin' south - but as soon as I work out what I'm doing long term, then it might be time to invest in some better hardware...
