I know there is a Minecraft swap about to start and I have done Mario and Zelda swaps, but I think an open gaming swap would be fun. The interests in my house are all over: Mario, Portal, Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon, Professor Layton, Minecraft and a lot more.

Details?  Are you thinking 1 small item?  A medium?  Time frame?  I would be interested if the timing is right and its not too large of a swap.  I do love video game themed things.  We like a lot of games in this house, but our favorites are Marios and Zelda games.  Cheesy

Well....the only actual game I've ever really played start to finish is the ps2 Kingdom Hearts ones  Cheesy But my hubby is a HUGE gamer!!!! I'm trying to collect Video game stuff to add a little "masculinity" to my immensely feminine living space  Cheesy I'd love to do a swap like this although I wouldn't really know what to make in return since I'm not very "video game savvy".  Tongue

Well I am a huge gamer fan, plus the boy as well. I'm definitely interested, but depends on timing. I am hoping around February? And im up for any size swap. So many ideas to go with this on this one. Very intrigued on how this develops

I'd be interested in this, love retro Nintendo and Final Fantasy. I also like a bit of the newer stuff, but tend to gravitate towards cutesy and RPGs.

Maybe we could look at sign ups going until the end of the first week in Feb and crafting being until the middle of March. I was thinking a 5 point swap, what do people think? I will wait and see. If enough people are interested.



Happy New Years!  Cheesy

This is a very fun idea - the other half and I are both avid gamers, modern and retro, and I collect old consoles as well (although I've had to curtail my collecting for now, as we've run out of space!). I'm in, as long as I haven't managed to sign up for another swap before this one starts... first-time swapper, despite having lurked on Craftster for five years!

Retro games are the BEST! I have a working NES, SNES, and Sega. My aunt has a working Atari.

I hope to join this swap when it gets going.

*sadface* unfortunately I won't be able to join another swap until Feb, as I won't be getting feedback for my current swap until then. *sob*

I may be interested in this. I'm a die hard gamer and have been for the majority of 29 years. Really into Nintendo stuff and RPGs of various flavors (especially old school Final Fantasy). So this is sort of right up my alley, assuming I were to get paired up with someone I have anything in common with. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

We've done a general video-game-themed swap before, haven't we?? I still use the Mega Man X cup/pen holder and Starfox hold-all I got from it, so I know we must have...

...but YES. I was going to start a Zelda swap in February, to make it an annual thing? But if this is going on instead, I'll gladly join!

AttieNichole, I don't know if this *exact* swap happened or not, but at least a couple people who posted in this thread earlier participated in an all-encompassing "Video Game Swap" last July.  That swap was a success, and it was a Round 2, so I'd be willing to bet it will pop up again eventually...

Maybe we should do it again, or when I start the Heroes/Villains swap at the end of Feb you could join using game heroes and villains. Roll Eyes
