    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    The items for my recipient have started to arrive. He or She should really dig this stuff, I would!

    I've already got the first tracking information PM from a SS this year. Someone is getting their gifts in time for Thanksgiving this year.

    #102 6 months ago

    I did a fair amount of stalking and came back with very little.Hopefully my SS will like it...

    #103 6 months ago

    I keep cruising this thread hopping my recipient will give me an idea.

    #104 6 months ago

    All I want for Christmas is to not break one of my machines...oh wait I did that yesterday while working on it. Call went into uncle Steve right away. New Years resolution: I need to learn patience and not strong arm things and to get better at soldering.

    #105 6 months ago

    I finally found what I hope is a great gift for my person! With little to go off, I started hunting for cool shit I would be excited to get. I found some really neat stuff I did not know existed and would love to get I bought one for myself and one for your gift.

    #106 6 months ago

    I think most guys in this hobby like similar things, tools cool stuff to decorate the game room with. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone gets.

    #107 6 months ago

    I'm done shopping. I plan to ship out after Thanksgiving.

    #108 6 months ago

    My gifts are ready too! I hope my "person" likes them!

    #109 6 months ago

    Most of mine have been purchased, got one more to pick up tomorrow and waiting on one to arrive so I can wrap everything and ship it out.

    #110 6 months ago

    Finished shopping.

    #111 6 months ago

    I already have mine being dropped shipped.

    #112 6 months ago

    Currently individually wrapping my items, should ship out today or tomorrow.
    Sure hope my person posts happy results!

    #113 6 months ago

    Orders done. Waiting for the orders and then gathering and wrapping. SS is an awesome tradition!

    #114 6 months ago

    I figured out what to get my recipient, but I have to wait for it to be in stock. Fingers crossed it's available in time. Boy! Are they going to be shocked!

    #115 6 months ago

    I probably should have sent my gifts directly to my SS but instead they came to me for wrapping and notes. Then they are going to be shipped from no-mans land so they have no idea where they came from. Good thing relatives will be here for the holiday to ship them for me. Who knows, maybe they will be shipped from more than one location

    Be sure to use adult stores, toys, movies, for the name on the shipping address.

    Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

    Well.....no me told me that! I thought it had to be pinball related.

    bryan, I'm sure that whoever was your ss would have more than happy to send you a 6-pk of both bud light lime AND orange!

    although my ss recipient has given plenty of suggestions, I'm finding it hard to find the perfect gift this year. I guess I'll need to put a little more effort into it

    #118 6 months ago

    And orders are placed. Should have plenty of time to wrap and get it out to my guy!

    #119 6 months ago
    Quoted from Sijcolo:

    Pretty much. Pinball. Beer. Game Room Decor!

    #120 6 months ago

    Always fun to see what everyone gets

    #121 6 months ago

    Shipping out to my SS today. Found a unique item that seems just right based on their posts here. I’m all giddy about it. Well, maybe that's just early holiday libations.

    #122 6 months ago

    I was going to post in here when I send my gifts out but don't want my person to be able to track that data back... The only thing I will say is the mailing will be from three towns over!

    #123 5 months ago

    I will probably accidentally open mine before Christmas unless it’s well marked. I get packages from Amazon, eBay, and others regularly, especially around Christmas. Either way, I’m excited

    It is not necessary to post here when you ship. However, do send John (LesManley) the tracking number(s) for your shipment.

    #125 5 months ago

    Oh I most certainly will!

    #126 5 months ago

    I was having trouble figuring out my target. Until it hit me that nearly every game in their collection is from the same manufacturer. My kind of guy. So then the gift selection became very easy. A few more items added to the mix and I'll be shipping out before the deadline.

    #127 5 months ago

    Just placed my order with Marco...

    Ha! I did the same too!

    That eliminates me. I have 6 pins from 5 different manufacturers!

    #130 5 months ago

    Drop shipping done.

    #131 5 months ago

    Got my stuff ordered for my secret Santa.
    Says it will arrive here by the 10th, so I'm going to have to wrap it all up and turn it around quickly.

    #132 5 months ago

    Package just arrived. Now to wrap and ship out in a week or two.

    #133 5 months ago

    Drop shipment 1 sent! Drop shipment 2 ordered....there may be a need for 3 and 4!

    #134 5 months ago

    This thread's about to get real exciting. Looks like a ton of people shipped already, so soon this thread will be filled with a month long run of Christmas cheer! Woot!

    #135 5 months ago

    Just ordered my gift. Doing direct ship, as anywhere I ship in Alaska would be a giveaway. Hope my recipient enjoys it!

    #136 5 months ago

    Shipped...or maybe I didn’t
    We should keep things a surprise here. If someone says they ship something and then someone else gets something two days later in the mail they more than likely know it’s you.

    I’m waiting until dec 24th when I load it in my sleigh

    #138 5 months ago

    Gift officially ordered!

    #139 5 months ago

    Remember the old Holiday Inn commercials where they said the best surprise is no surprise?

    I’m sending out an empty box.

    #140 5 months ago

    Holy sh!t, I just got my package yesterday, but I had to go work for Black Friday so I didn’t even get a chance to really look at it.

    I’m going to actually wait till Christmas (or Christmas Eve) to open my gifts since last year I didn’t and I think it sorta makes it “less exciting”
    The anticipation is really part of the experience.
    Thank to my extremely ahead of the game secret Santa, I’m still trying to pick out gifts!!

    #141 5 months ago

    Wow! Was not expecting this!

    That is why I waited. Not normally getting any presents. It gave me something to look forward to.

    Quoted from SKWilson:

    Thats friggin cool.
    I thought for sure you were gettin some kind of perishable food product because of the the open by date.
    Props to your Secret Santa for making it fun.

    Dang you got a complete pinball advent calendar setup!

    Dayumm!, Such a creative gift opening video..only to be trumped by an even more creative secret santa! So cool! I totally thought chinchillas too i also plan to wait this time as LTG has suggested..just makes it worth the while in Christmas day!

    #147 5 months ago

    Stalking complete, first order placed will finish up tomorrow. Hopefully everything gets here in time.

    Apologies to my Santa as I haven’t been super active lately, been busy catching up on maintenance the previous owner of our house let slide so haven’t had a whole lot of hobby time. I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel though.

    If your stalking isn’t going so well besides pinball I’ve been been building a mame machine, got my first slot machine, started experimenting with making hard cider, and almost ready to start finishing the game room as soon as two more maintenance catchup projects wrap up.

    That's awesome!
