    Default Puro Pot Pass VI

    REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED*

    I am posting this to gauge interest in running another Puro Pot Pass.

    So, what's a Puro Pot Pass?

    The rules, as proposed, are here:

    The Object : Be able to guess the country of origin of a nude, puro cigar. A "puro" is a cigar where the wrapper, binder and filler are all from the same country.

    The Prize : This will be a sort of "jackpot" style prize. Here's an example:

    Player A: Will be me. I will start this off with a nude cigar and a prize pack of 3 sent to Player B

    Player B: Guesses wrong. Has to send his prize pack and nude stick, plus an additional 3 to Player C (now 6 cigars)

    Player C: Guesses wrong. Has to send his prize pack and nude stick, plus an additional 3 to Player D (now 9 cigars)

    Player D: Guesses right. Keeps prize pack of 9, and then sends out nude stick and a new 3 pack to Player E.

    Player E: As the last player, if he guesses right. He of course keeps the prize. But if he guesses wrong he must bomb an unsuspecting victim not associated with the game. Preferably, a n00b.

    This is for everyone. Prize pack sticks are to be $3 and up no limit on upper price send what you want and the nude cigar needs to be over the $5 mark and HAS to be a puro, meaning everything about it has to be from the country of origin. This will take some researching on your part. If you have a question about the MSRP of a stick, PM and ask. Don't assume. " the puro can be any price over $5 so don't assume no one will send a $30 stick for the puro"

    On top of a prize pack - everyone will receive an image award and must display it as their sig tag for one month from the day of receiving it. There will be a reward for guessing right - and one for guessing wrong. I'll make the sig tags and send you instructions for use. You must keep your sig tag up for 30 days from initial posting. If you want to play, this is part of it.

    There's no limit on how many or who can play. This is for newbs and FOGs alike. After everyone is done signing up, then I will arrange the order and get this party started.

    What say you?

    I will start it out, and will choose the order and will post in this first post in this thread. (the order can be changed if something comes up and your not able to play in your turn)
    Start date will be February 17th? if thats good for everyone.

    Please keep up with communication. That is key.

    There's no limit on how many or who can play. This is for newbs and FOGs alike. After everyone is done signing up, then I will arrange the order and get this party started.

    I will post here of any changes as we go along IE the cigar price is not your over inflated local cigar shop prices look on the net for the lowest price you can find the cigar at, If i Can find the old price guide ill post it here also.

    I need you guys to PM me you puro and prize pack puts when its your turn so i can keep track of the prize pack like we did last year "all but the last person when its my turn don't send me your puro info".

    For you new guys that want to do some reading here is the links to the Past PPP threads. Search is your friend.

    To Get Started, PM me your address by February 16th. I'll then come up with the most logical path and we'll go from there.

    Notes: I made every attempt to make this pass make it around the US smoothly. I have a faint recollection of a mini-herf happening in PA somewhere, but couldn't remember which of you three had gone first, so I just guessed. Best of luck.

    DO NOT send your package to the next recipient until you have confirmed with them, publicly in this thread, that they are ready to receive. Communication is key here. After your guess has been made, and result revealed, I'll PM you the address of where you send it to.

    I'll be smoking a cigar in the morning to start this off. Package flies Monday AM.




    * If ashauler would like back in this competition, that is fine, as he left in good standing.

    Funny thing about that user name. I've known him for a couple of years now, I've only seen him drunk two or three times. And it's not due to lack of effort by ol' KB. Great guy though...I think.

    Cool, sounds like there's a lot of interest. This is going to be fun.

    While I realize that most all of you are internationally recognized, and the US mail will undoubtedly deliver your mail with only your screen name on the package, I'd feel a little more comfortable if I also provided a street address as to where you receive your mail. One way to remedy this would be if you would PM me your address.

    Default Proposition

    All participants have sent in their addresses. We haven't had any other interest since Tuesday. Anyone for kicking this off earlier than anticipated?

    I'd like, however, to close registration once we begin the pass - would help out in moving the pass along efficiently.

    Discuss!
