OK, Calvarez, that picture is messing with this thread - I'm in a particularly foul curmudgeon mood.... how about resizing that billboard and reposting?



Dang right, wtf is with that huge pic?

No need to post pictures - most cigars can be found in the database and there are plenty of pictures there.

Here's where you can see what's happening with this pass:
http://www.cigargeeks.com/boxpass/default.asp?action=history&boxpas...

For an overview of the pass system, take a look here:
http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/boxx/knowledgebase.asp?iid=16&C...

All passes have the same general rule: Don't water down the pass! Your puts should be of equivalent worth as your takes and if you take an ISOM you replace it with another ISOM unless you've cleared it ahead of time with the moderator.

The moderator will establish the rules for benchmark pricing (Kent went with house rules) - CI, Famous, or other reputable online dealers. Typically you use a single or fiver pricing if available. Otherwise, use box pricing to get to the value of a stick.

It is customary, although not required, to leave a stick or two in the pass marked as gifts for the moderator.


Great info Brad, just what I was looking for. Sorry I was too lazy to look it up.

So presumably, the extra puts for those who had takes were for the moderator? Assuming this is marked on the cigar, and not in the box pass system?

 Extra sticks for the moderator are not listed in the puts and takes, there should be a separate bag marked for any donation to the moderator. (BTW Kent likes White Owls and Acids).
Extra puts are just Geek math.  Many people will add an extra into the pass just to help it grow

Bunch of whiny little girls. The photo looks just fine on my 28" 5k monitor. Sheesh. I had just linked to it from somewhere, changed it to just be a link. Joke's over anyway...

Damn, and I already had his Ron Mexicos aging in the compost bin.

Don't want anyone to have to add extraneous amounts of postage to keep it moving.

And its completely necessary, though a nice bonus for the pass host.

I was going to gift you a bowling ball, but I guess you have a point...

And don't lie, that "Got Your 6" has you drooling.
