    Default Loteria swap, anyone?

    I am amassing a fantastic set of these cards with artwork by so many great artists! I would love to host a swap with this topic. If I hear from at least 5 or 6 people, I'll jump in with it. I hosted a dozen or so swaps on AFA and really enjoyed it and this one (my first here) could begin a new loteria saga. My concept would be to customize which cards each player wants/needs rather than just randomly. Let me know what you think. There are 54 cards in the basic deck, and Mr. Google can tell you all about it if you're unfamiliar.

    I love this theme idea, but I dont know if I would be able to commit. It would totally depend on the due date, and also I am unsure about it being a PAT. PATs are more of a commitment in my brain.

    Not exactly a PAT, more like "Name the cards you'd most like to receive" with no guarantees specified by the host.

    Oooh, these are sort of like tarot cards with a Mexican twist! I would be interested! I suggest you include more of an explanation with some examples to pique more interest. These could be really cool!

    Ahhhh, so participants can make whatever they want and the Hostess will try to send the preferred returns to the players. That makes sense.

    Loteria examples from my collection, all by artists from our own online community: Art is by gwenniejo, WideEyedLife, Veterok, Waughtercolors, Drake22ice and tjbalding.

    If there's enough interest to either trade 1:1 or join a swap, I'd be glad to host or trade. Lately I've seen artist-made cards that feature women on cards that used to feature only men.

    I hope these examples pique your interest! I hope there's enough interest for a swap.

    Cool - OK, I'm off to write up the swap rules and I'll notify everyone when it's open.
