    Got my email. Time to start shopping.

    #53 5 months ago

    Already Shopping. Need some better ideas for my person... Since I ain't saying whom you are, everyone needs to start posting more content

    Then I can stalk you better to see what you may like.

    #54 5 months ago

    just how many times do I have to post that I want a victoria's secret model for xmas!?!?!

    #55 5 months ago

    Thanks for doing this eh lesmanley

    #56 5 months ago

    Whoever has me, size has changed, it is now DP LE!!! This stalking thing is hard. What do you get a person who has or had every pin you want?! This is going to take me a few days to "stalk".

    #57 5 months ago

    Whomever got me, feel free to ask Les for a listing of my real collection. Pinside one aint accurate

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    Hey phat_jay, do you have this t-shirt already? Just in case your Santa has a taste for fine art:

    Omg how awful lol!

    #59 5 months ago

    Stalking ain’t easy. I’ll have to sit next to the fireplace with some cookies and milk and channel my inner Santa.

    #60 5 months ago

    Stalking, I thought you said stocking

    What do you mean? I found if I limit myself to 3 per hour, I stop going cross-eyed! I can do this...

    #74 5 months ago

    I was kind of thinking what it would be like if one year we switch it up and do white elephant style pinball gifts. I'm kind of curious what pinball junk everyone has left unused collecting dust.

    Or I dare someone to introduce a zonk gift that we can pass along each yeah, ha ha.

    Just kidding, let's not do that. Have to be careful what I wish for.

    I don’t have a ton of extra/used pinball stuff, but wouldn’t be opposed to giving it away if I thought my secret Santa could use it (ie. the original display I pulled from my Metallica). One mans junk can be another’s treasure. A white elephant gift mixed in with the other stuff could be fun. This whole thing is just a good time, glad I’m involved!

    Yes... careful indeed. Remember your SS may be reading this.

    Maybe we could save that idea for a Christmas in July bit of fun

    #80 5 months ago

    Got my gift/gifts purchased, just waiting for everything to arrive and ill get my gift off in the mail.

    #81 5 months ago

    Wow people are fast this year!!! I'm still stalking...

    #82 5 months ago

    Gifts purchased, just awaiting tracking. Who woulda thought astroglide would incur a hazmat charge...

    #83 5 months ago
    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Yeah, me too. Finding any personal information about my stalkee is proving somewhat difficult...

    #84 5 months ago

    I've been doing some good stalking and done some gift ordering.

    #85 5 months ago

    Done, should arrive next week)

    #87 5 months ago

    Done! I researched my SS hope he/she is happy

    #88 5 months ago

    waiting on a couple sites offering up 'black friday' discounts for my recipient

    Ditto

    #91 5 months ago

    Done! I stalked my SS pinside profile. Thankfully they have a list of the games they currently have. I went a little overboard at Marco. I hope they like what they get. If not, I guess they can always return what I sent. It was fun shopping for someone else with the same interests. I hope everyone has a safe and Merry Christmas and great new year. Peace and Love

    It has begun!

    Getting gifts days before Thanksgiving may be a record. To all those that haven't even bought gifts, let alone mailed them, don't worry or feel like you are doing something wrong...it's not a race.

    I plan on getting serious about getting all my gifts together and in the mail next week.

    I'd add also don't feel like you need to open them when they arrive either, some people save them until christmas. Just make sure to post that they arrived, santas stalk tracking numbers and want to know that you got them.

    #95 5 months ago
    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    Just make sure to post that they arrived, santas stalk tracking numbers and want to know that you got them.

    Right, because even though a tracking number shows delivered, we want to make sure the secret santa actually got the package and someone didn't swipe it off their front steps or something. Secret Santas won't know a package is coming on a specific day, so if it was delivered and someone stole it, they would never know the difference.

    #96 5 months ago

    I had a gift arrive Friday. A t-shirt. I haven't looked at it, saving for x-mas. I opened the package thinking, I don't think I have anything currently on order. Grabbed the paper out and it said Pinside secret Santa.

    Keep in mind too that several people have PM'd me and told me that their gifts are shipping in multiple packages from different retailers, etc. So just because you got one thing already doesn't mean there isn't more coming so continue to keep your eyes out. Definitely want to make sure all the gifts get in the hands of their intended recipients.

    Ooh....A package arrived from Mezel Mods today and I know I didn't order anything from them.

    First present that's going under the tree.

    I got another box from Amazon yesterday. Didn't open that one.

    #100 4 months ago

    I got a package from amazon and it had a gift wrapped item inside. I'm not gonna open it yet. I'll see if I can hold out until xmas.

    Thanks to my Secret Santa whoever you are!
