    Default Theme ideas for my First Hosted Swap in October

    So it's going to happen - you know, I know it, we all know by now the Pabkins is card crazy.

    Thus to let you all know it's coming and to solicit thoughts about the possible themes I figured I'd post a thread and ask. Because I totally want oodles of you to be interested.

    Let me know your thoughts!

    My main idea is Space Adventures (prompted by a card I'm making for Gobeetsa)

    Theme Ideas:

    - Space Adventures (rockets, rayguns, aliens, awesome galactic skies, stars, fantasy mashed with sci-fi - you name it you wouldn't have to stick with astronauts, up up and away, exploring the unknown!) - this one is my favorite so far.

    - Dreamcatchers (saw this on AFA...I'm in that one and I totally love Dreamcatchers so any thing you want if you mix in a dream catcher or strings somehow)

    - Courtesans from any time/culture (hey you could even throw in a jigalo...did I spell that right?) - saw a few "fancy dressed, decadent clothing" ones in the archives that seemed really popular.

    - Desserts (or Dessert clothing?, or animals with food/desserts?)

    - Fireflies or Will-o-wisps

    I vote for desserts. Not sure if that's tasty sweet stuff or arid, sandy regions, but either works for me.
    Keeping my eyes open for the next challenge...

    What if you do it like a theme per card thing.. like do a 3:3, but you have a list to pick from...

    example:
    You arrive in a world covered in oceans... what creatures do you see?
    You are exploring the rings of saturn.... and you bump into an alien.. what does it look like?
    You found an egg on an asteroid.. what hatched from it?
    You make a best friend on the planet Baloopagetti.. make a selfie of the two of you
    You are watching an intergalactic fashion show.. recreate an alien wearing your favorite outfit that you saw.

    I would have fun with something like this.. and you could have each player add some space journey theme to the list from people to choose from.
    Never give up on a dream, because of the time it is taking to accomplish it.. The time will pass anyways.

    @Drake
    Awesome! I've definitely decided to go with the space theme. And will include your idea (and the prompts you've already written when I make the thread.)

    @Rosecake
    Fashion is a must right!?

    @Tygir hooray!!

    @Tempeststudios
