Anyone interested in a Pentax Gnome "game?"

Sounds silly, doesn't it.
But I have this idea that could be fun - hear me out.
I ordered this gnome, who doesn't have a name yet, and I'm about to order him a toy Pentax camera.
I'd like to take a photo of him with his little Pentax camera, posting his general location in the world, then mail it to the next person to do the same.
The next person just has to agree to send him on to someone else to do the same - to post where they are willing to pay to ship him to (local country or international).
Anyways, tell me if there is any interest in such a game.
Here he is. There are 3 camera options for him on ebay - which camera do you think he should have? LOL.

Cool idea. The only problems you would have are postage prices (since covid, postage costs have skyrocketed, particularly from the UK to the US) and making sure he arrives in one piece. I have several gnomes, one each for mine and my sons football teams and a zombie and a mummy gnome that pursues them round the garden. I also haxe a godzilla with a mouth and claw full of gnome 🤣🤣🤣😁

Hi Michael
Sounds like fun

Maybe a photo submitted of a gnome and camera together. no postage required.
Is that a possible alternative ?

The fun of the challenge is that it is the same object travelling the world. When my son was younger he participated in flat stanley. I was also a member of a community that passed a hat around (I never did it). I used to post on a forum dealing with vintage bicycles (mostly 70-80s road bikes) they had a "box of junk" it was random old bike parts. You would take a part and leave a part, the box was pretty heavy and shipping was expensive but it was part of the hobby(I never participated).

When I was in college there was about 20 of that went to spring break. Someone "borrowed" a lawn ornament from a neighboring house. That person proceeded to take it to spring break and photograph it on the beach, in bars etc. He then returned the statute with the pictures.

These gnomes are pretty light in weight so shipping shouldn't be too bad. Sounds like fun I would be tentative.
