In 2009 story games had a Secret Santa gift exchange. You submit your name (& address) and in return you get someone else's name (& address). It becomes your super secret mission to deliver them a gift, delighting them and bringing our forum community closer together.
2012 has had its highs and lows. Our forum community is bigger now, and perhaps more fragmentary. Andy asked me if I'd like to step up and run another Secret Santa gift exchange for our community. "Sure," I thought. "But if that's to work, we'd need to launch right away." And then I dropped the ball for about four days. But here we are, now, together.
I'd like to formally invite you to participate in the 2012 Story Games Secret Santa.
To sign up, whisper me a message that includes:
An Email Address You Can Be Reached At
Your Full Mailing Address
Three things you like (like: genres, hobbies, specific games, colours, etc), in case your Santa is stumped. Single words or short phrases.
Sign up by 6pm PST Friday (November 30th).
I'll then email everyone their Secret Santa target shortly after.
In order for the gift to reach its target in time for Christmas / The End of the World, you'll move promptly in choosing and mailing out a gift.
People from any country can participate. I'll try to have as many domestic/continental pairings as possible.
No love of santa/christmas required. You can recoin it Secret Stavropoulos in your head if you'd prefer a non-denominational name variant. (Because he's a generous, jolly fellow too.)
General Gift Guidelines:
Gifts can be purchased or handmade.
If purchased, gifts shouldn't exceed a twenty-five dollar price point.
Feel free to disregard the "things this person likes" - those are a tool, not a constraint.
Include a card or personal message of some sort!
Be lovely and thoughtful.
