Before you send the package will you post an order of the jambalaya in your main post? That way we can have a heads up of sorts.

Thanks!

That's the plan. I will do it as soon as I'm back home

Thanks Ludzik.

This is going to be incredibly fun. I have already placed some goodies to the side I think other's will enjoy.

Each shipment REQUIRES Tracking! Please post tracking number after shipping it to the next guy.

Distance was selected based on zip codes - I selected the shortest distance for the next step till I got to Lord Mercat who volunteered to ship the box over to EU. Then distance was done based on miles from city he's in to the two EU destination city's and the shortest was selected. Next I did the reverse - distance from the last EU entry to the remaining US destination city's and the next guy got selected and we returned to choosing distance based on zip code and then last hop back to me....

I am planning on shipping the box out tomorrow. I will be using a small flat rate box from USPS and it's packed to the brim.

When you get he box, please take a pic of what you take and what you put in and post it up. Please do not hold onto the box too long. IF you know that you will be out of town for a while and or not able to make your selection and shipment in a timely manner, I request that you let me know and we can adjust the shipment order to take that into account.

If anyone has any questions / comments (constructive ones :) ) please feel free to post them up here or pm them to me.

So are we each going to receive an individual PM from the person we ship to for the address, or are we going to receive it in a PM from you?

Did you do shipping order by where everyone is from? Or randomly?

Distance - details are two posts above
Addresses - when I have a moment I will pm sender and recipient with the address I have for the next guy as it was provided to me. Please include me on a pm if there are any corrections or changes made.

edit - I've made all the appropriate notifications. All pairs (Shipper/receiver) should have the info. Please verify.

I'm not 100% sure... I looked at the previous Jambalaya and I don't think that there was a pic ahead of time but rather a pic at every step of what people took and put in? Or did I miss the startup pic?? In either case I have taken pics of everything that's in there :)
I definitely will post a pic at the end of what the box started out with and what it ended up with. As a spoiler though of what you can expect here's a rough list

Few bricks and plates, animals, armour (Lego and non Lego ), weapons , helms, couple minfigs, CMF, plant stuff (led stuff as well as some fruits and veggies and flowers, capes, sticker sheet, minifig parts, spiders (big one and small ones), nets, stairs (two different styles), flags, torch stuff, flames, chalises and couple other surprise goodies. I tried to make the box a variety one where hopefully everyone will find something of interest.

Btw while it is a small flat rate usps box, its packed very very tightly!

First guy to receive the box just takes a pic of what he took and what he put in. Keeps the rest of the contents a mystery/surprise for the next guy :)

That said, it might be cool to take a before and after pic so we can see how much it changed from start to finish, as well as see if anything made it all the way around without anyone wanting it.

Ooh, I like that idea AK! I would like to see how much it changes from the start to finish! :D

Also, I have set aside what I am going to put in, I think you will like it! (hopefully) :D

Also, are we allowed to put non-castle figs in? I got a bag of figs from a friend that I don't need, and was wondering if I could put those in?

I wouldn't be against it if they could be used in castle world: for example good green arms etc...

Hey, does anybody that comes after me on the list like peach figs? I have a lot of peach heads and such that I will never use, and this would be a great way to pass them off. I know a lot of others feel the same though, so I won't put them in if no one else uses them.

11 Andhe
12 Clucker
13 Mpoh98
