    Let me see your CAN-CANS is all about showing other BA's what your local area has for great beer in cans. We all have great breweries near us that have been or are moving to canning for many different reasons. For whatever the reason is that they can it we want to celebrate those cans and your local brewers.

    Here we go with the RULES!

    1- Min 144 oz (that is a 12 pack) No Max destroy some porches!

    2- A minimum of 144 oz must be CANNED! Too many really good places are canning these days. Crowlers are cans after all!!

    3- Anything over 144 oz can be in plastic baggies for all I care!! (Don't do it )

    4-The box must contain some type of local food item! Peanuts, Popcorn, beef jerky, etc. Cigars are okay as well. A big bonus if this comes in a CAN! (please try and make this artisan if possible, no Ketchup if you live in PA or canned clams if you live in Main)

    5-All beers must be produced within 200 miles of your general living city.
    -Exceptions can be made to include neighboring states If it is exceptional beer. With all the places canning these days it should be easy
    -The spirit of the box should be local!

    6-Try to keep wants, and style likes and dislikes in mind

    All boxes should arrive no later than Friday June 8th This should be more than enough time and barring good reason and communication any late shippers could be subject to bereported as a bad trader.

    NOOBS!
    I will take BA's that have not traded or done a BIF before. You will be deemed a NOOB and will have to ship by May 21!!!!
    If you are designated a NOOB your box won't ship until you ship!
    I reserve the right to limit the number of NOOBS.

    Hint 1: I'm gonna ship you some beer, bro. Probably a whole lot of it.

    Also: I've been watching some fucking NERDY old anime lately. Are you old like me? Possibly. Are you cool like me? Probably a whole lot cooler, dude.

    Couple quick Noob questions and then game on.

    - Does your target have you as a target - or is it all random?
    - Is there a purpose to guessing or all just for fun?
    - Can you ship before they guess who you are?

    I'll want a couple weeks to curate things...but just curious.

    Classics! I grew up with Akira and Fist of the North Star and a bunch of other shit.

    Ninja Scroll and Ghost in the Shell were my favorites back then though!

    - Does your target have you as a target - or is it all random?--possibly, but probably not
    - Is there a purpose to guessing or all just for fun?--nope, all for fun
    - Can you ship before they guess who you are?--yes, ship whenever you are ready. As a NOOB, you should be shipping earlier, also keep in mind that your box won't be shipping to you until your target gets your box.

    Am I an official noob? I do have 80 completed trades on here over ~2 years - think that should worth something. However, I don't mind if you Noob me. All good! Won't stop me from destroying a porch or hallway or FedEx truck somewhere :slight_smile:

    I didn't check your trading history, you're a BIF NOOB, but I don't know if you are included in the NOOB early shipping.

    Fyi... I didnt designate anyone as a noob. I would just ask if this is your first BIF to get your boxes out Asap.
    I aplogize... I don't have access to BA from my work PC. So doing a lot of this from my phone and home at night.

    Looks like I'll be shipping North. Glad my target posted his likes and dislikes in the "About" portion of his profile page. Made me think I should do that on mine as well.

    I own the remastered Akira(still watch it every now & then) and loved ghost in the shell. Never seen fist of the North Star, but enjoyed the video game when I was a tot.

    Great idea - although I won't turn down good beer, nice to at least be able to hand pick a few good fits for my target should there profile have this info...

    Duuuuuuuude - I wanted a Turbo Grafix so bad! One of my local game shops recently got one in really great shape in trade. I was SO tempted to grab it. But then I just spent like $300 on Dark Lord tickets and hotel...

    And that's not to mention all of the money I spent on the beer that I'm bringing for bottle shares...

    Hint #2--I have never traded with or met my target.
    To the best of my knowledge we have BIFed together either.
    He has definitely never been in my kitchen.

    Sometimes the BIF Master will put two folks together as target...but thats rare and usually to confuse people (or once they get to know each other well, just because that'll work out well)
    All just fun. and possibly to add a ton of beers to your wants from the state of who you think your sender is
    Totally. I've seen people get boxes that they weren't expecting, and still didn't know who its from. There are also ninja boxes, where people send boxed to those who aren't their target

    Wishing you luck!
