Here's a quote of the post with the rules, Arty (and it's so simple, even a dead guy can do it!):
DocMcNeedles wrote:...one man's trash is another's treasure, or watch giveaway chain mail.

I have come up with a new give-away game we all can participate in. We all have the watch drawer full of "misfit" watches, either not our style, broken, or no longer worn and not worth selling. Here is a way to move them on to happier homes:

-One person will list the watch as a give-away. This watch can be broken, need battery, whatever. Any condition is fine!

-If anyone wants it, they must step forward and make a post saying they will take it by replying to the thread. First come, first serve!

-At that point I will lock the thread until the watch is delivered to its new home. Once I receive notice that the watch has arrived, I will unlock the thread, the new owner now MUST list a watch from their boxes to be given away. Then repeat the above process.

The Rules:
Post a pic and adequately describe the watch.
Mail it to the new owner via a traceable method.
No catch and release, if the watch is not to your liking, you must keep it and try to give it away at another round.
I may change the rules as needed for logistics.
I think that is it. Have fun.

A watch is offered up, first person that wants it posts they want it. The thread will be closed until the person gets the watch and has a watch of theirs they are ready to offer up. The thread opens with a new offering, from the person who got the last one, and the first person who wants it will post they want it and it starts all over.

It can be a parts watch or one you don't wear anymore, the idea is that what one person may not like, another may love it or have the means to fix a broken watch.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

I’m going to go search for a penny! I think it’s time to reopen! I’m open to debate just don’t want it to be only two people.

I don't think we'll have too much trouble getting par-tici-pants to answer the call of Johnny Owens to "Come on down!" and play the game...there'll be at least four or five doing the dance and kickin' out the jams at any given time, so numbers of haids in hats shouldn't be an issue. I think we'll ALL be glad to see taplap make its well-deserved come back...well, except maybe for Conjurer, who always got beat out and never won nuthin', but that's weed of a differn't shade that got burned down to roaches long, long ago... 8) Ahem...yes.
