Secret Santa Anyone? (Signups Closed)
« on: December 02, 2012, 08:49:38 pm »
Hey, so we have done a gift exchange when it wasn't Christmas; why not a Christmas gift exchange? (I searched and we actually haven't done this shockingly enough)

I think this'd be fun, and it's easy to do so we should do it. I also run a secret Santa group for my friends so I will just coordinate it.

RULES:
Who? You will be assigned randomly with another person via lottery pick style drawing.

What? Get the person you're assigned a gift with a 20$ spending limit or so unless you feel like ballin

When? I mean just make sure the gift gets to where it needs to before the 25th; ie mail it by ~19th

Where? EVERYWHEEEERRREEE

Why? Because you can never recei- give enough gifts.

If i missed stuff let me know.

If you don't want to play,
1) Lame
2) That's fine
3) But please do. We want to give you stuff

If you want to play, please post in this thread.

Also, please let me know if you are ok or not ok with international shipping if you want to play! When drawing I will be sure to redraw should you get someone outside of your country. For solo members of countries, I mean I guess you can choose that option but, why..?

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I suppose the gifts could be electronic (Steam Wishlist, that sort of thing)?

Yeah, alright, why not?

The shipping costs for sending something overseas could easily reach that $20 limit.
Otherwise, it sounds like a fun idea and I would participate if I had enough spendable money.

So long as we get things rolling fast enough, I'm game.  I need to be able to get a gift sent by the 15th as after that date I'm indisposed.  If we can figure out who we're sending stuff to by say, the coming weekend, then that'd work for me.

Yeah how about if you haven't expressed interest by the end of the work week you're out. Expect your PMs this Friday.

Also Didero, you can always opt to give a steam gift or something similar should you get someone who you are financially unable to send a physical gift to.

I might be able to participate, I should know soon.  And the overseas shipping took forever last time, so we should probably keep that in mind.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I just recalled I've got some digital goods lying around, gathering cyber-dust. I'll use those as my gift.
So sign me up in the digital-only tier :)

EDIT: Also, you might want to stop spamming a link to this topic in every other thread, eropS. It's getting a tad annoying >_>

Erops, another thing you'll learn is to always ignore Didero. He will complain when you do this, but he will also participate. Understand? ;)

I have to work this morning unfortunately, game starts at one so I should be back around four (CDT). Look out for your person around then!

Well I had to rack my brain to figure out a way in which I wouldn't automatically know who got me. I think I did a clever enough job, left ample time to forget what color each IP related to and had a buddy mix them up. You should have all gotten a PM if you didn't speak up!

Again if you got your own color, let me know. Otherwise, Merry Christmas! (Also I know the IPs were odd, but blue.com doesnt have a specific IP address so I had to find ones I could get to work haha)

Okay, so how would we go about getting the address of our person?  Without putting them on the forum for the world to see, that is.  Or should we all just be adding games to our steam wishlists?

Well, the people who want something shipped to them will have given their address. So please continue to PM me those if you guys want your secret Santa to be able to send you something.

I suppose I don't want to push people for their location if they don't want to share it.

Since you sent in your address for your Santa, I'm sure your Santa has that under consideration.

That's good to hear :)
Also, if you're going to participate next year, you may want to create a wishlist on Steam, that'll make this less scary :P


And I already sent her a PM, but thanks for the games LadyM!!

Aw what? Inkling had green, that's too bad. If you still haven't gotten anything let me know, Lady!


Also Haseri, thanks for the upgrade!
