Secret Santa 2020
« on: October 04, 2020, 09:30:16 PM »



Secret Santa is back for another year!  Here's the same ol' rules:

1.  Don't sign up if you can't / won't follow through.
2.  Sign ups are open until the first(ish) of November, at which time everyone'll be matched up and wish lists will be sent out to their respective Santa.
3.  Due to past issues, no super new members allowed.  Santas must have a minimum of 25 posts or have a long timer vouch for them.
4.  To make life easier for me, please fill in the form below when sending me your info.  Keep in mind that the more options your Santa has, the better the chances of him (or her) finding a good deal in the time allotted.  Please don't ask Santa for relatively rare games that sell once every 90 days on ebay for reasonable prices; he's on a schedule and can't wait months for a deal to come along.
5.  Value of your gift(s) should be in the $30-40 range - real value and not bloated, unsold BIN pricing.
6.  Gifts should be mailed by December 9th to give the PO two full weeks.  If for some reason you won't be able to meet that time frame, please let me know as early as possible so that alternate plans can be made and nobody ends up with an empty yule log.
7.  Also related to a past issue, make sure your gift is sent with tracking.  If at all possible, it's strongly suggested that you have Santa send your gift to a secure location (work, PO box, a neighbor that's home, or held at the PO); if tracking says it was delivered but your package was stolen off your porch, it's not Santa's problem.
8.  This is important and bears repeating: don't sign up if you won't follow through; you fuck this up and I'll poop on your front porch and rape your toaster.
9.  The most important rule is to have fun!

For extra holiday cheer, one random Santa will be selected to receive 'coal in their stocking and ...... I gotta come up with something extra (suggestions?).  If you don't want (or already have) either of these goodies (whatever the other bonus may be....) please note accordingly on the form below.

Also, let me know if you don't want to shop for me since it won't exactly be secret.

Woot!  I was getting worried!

You guys can save your lists 'til the end of the month.  No rush.

Bumps!  A little under two weeks to go.

Sooooo... for the bonus drawing, how does a USB Turbob pad sound?  Your choice of either the Hori wired one or the 8bitdo boo-teef one (same price on amazonery).
