    Default EITH - Engraving In The Hat

    Who would be interested in participating in a game called EITH - Engraving In The Hat. Basically all this is - you engrave something on a plate, send it to somebody and receive an engraving from somebody (maybe same guy/gal, maybe somebody else).

    Rules:
    1. Everybody can participate, every skill level is accepted. This is for fun and mainly for the joy of giving and learning.
    2. Use whatever engraving style you're comfortable with or want to explore more.
    3. Participant must engrave his/her own original design at his/her best skill level.
    4. Participant must engrave his/her name and completion date somewhere. The text could be a central design element, or just tiny text somewhere on the border.
    5. Engraving size: minimum 1 square inch, no max.
    6. Everybody who takes part in the game, must send his/her engraving to other participant assigned to him/her (by random) at his/her own expense.
    7. Everybody who participates, receives engraving from some other participant for free.
    8. If possible, post your designs, sketches and/or blunders to forum, it would be a wonderful resource to see and learn.
    9. Deadline: by 30th of June the engravings must be finished.

    I think hobo is just fine. Tho it's smaller, I think there's usually more work involved and I personally would be happy to get a nickel .

    Added you to the list.

    Sounds like fun.
    Maybe the next "funer" would be to pass around the SAME plate to people who then embellish it (and put their initials on their cut).

    It would NOT be rectangular, though.

    Sounds like fun. I like the idea of a nickle or small buckle or something else that is not just a useless bit of metal. Key tab, dog tag or something would be way cooler than a practice plate IMHO.
    Count me in for sure.
