Welcome to the third annual Demoscene Card Exchange!

Join us for an end of year event about sending and receiving cards or postcards with other people in the Demoscene. All you have to is sign up, wait to get your recipients, then get creative! No purchases required (except maybe stamps). The deadline to join is November 5th.

Sign up at https://demoscene.exchanges.cards

Read the rules and get more details at https://demoscene.exchanges.cards/rules

If you're on Pouet, it's also over there: https://www.pouet.net/topic.php?which=12374

NOTE: All card assignments are random. You do not get to pick who you send cards to or get cards from.

This has been running well for the past two years as a full Demoscene exchange with no major issues, so here we go again! Some people have sent Demoscrene postcards, water colors, papercraft, rendered covers, a whole bunch of stuff. So feel free to get creative, but even if you've got too much to do, sending a regular card or postcard from a store is perfectly fine.

If you do decide to post photos of what you get (some people like to see those), feel free to do so. If you post to a platform with hashtags, like Twitter, it would be nice to use #demoscenecardexchange so we can find them all. Don't forget to cover any personal information such as addresses before posting.

Like last year, there's still an opt-in feature that will automatically appear on January 9th PST allowing people to check who was assigned to them so they can work out who they should still be expecting if they haven't gotten all their cards yet.

New this year is a "last chance" exchange. This will automatically open when the deadline for the official exchange ends, and run for a week. However, I absolutely really truly encourage people to sign up by the deadline.

People I end up having to slot in after the deadline usually don't get the chance at many recipients, so hopefully this will fix that, and also give you good reason why you shouldn't miss the deadline!

Thanks again for participating!

@Mindiell, someone every year always goes for 49. It's 49 because I got the test wrong and set the limit to < 50 but don't care to fix it.

Nobody will ever get even close to 50 cards, even if we get the usual 48 participants as that's just how the assignments work out. I'd say at max people who ask for a lot will get maybe 12-15.

@mirrorbird, thanks for joining

Ok, what I intented to do is too much complicated for now. I'll have to report it for next year... So disappointing.

Luckily, I got simpler ideas too.

got a nice card from OhLi today. she(I think she?) wrote "I just learned paper stitching".
Front of card is a Christmas tree image made from "exploding" shapes in fabric -- I'm too lazy to scan it right now, it's easier to understand it if you see it. Imagine it's a set of exploding asterisks. Or one of those "fractal" tree makers we messed with in the '90s.
Then I opened up the middle of the card (don't worry, I didn't break it) and I saw the work done on the back. Every piece connected to every other piece. Pretty sweet.
Anyone else got any fun yet?
