    To follow up my post upon opening my gift, I took home my original pencil drawing of TAF k/o assy. and proudly showed the wife who stated it was the perfect gift.
    So to my SS, I will say THANKS AGAIN!

    #202 5 months ago

    EVERYONE please reply here that you get your package safe if you did?..... takes the anxiety out for us when we ship! Dang, I better get that package shipped asap then!!

    #203 5 months ago

    Research and stalking done, orders have been placed, now waiting for them to arrive so they can be sent back out at the same time.

    Holy cow!!! I got this huge package delivered today. I just ordered a bg for my recent Black Knight pickup and figured it came today. Surprise, I just got the best gift I could have ever expected, and it was from my secret santa!!! Thank you so much, this was above and beyond!!! For the record, I restored my Diner recently, and left the BG on it that it came with. It was a very poor, low resolution reproduction and was even missing the clock digits. I would have waited till Christmas to open this, but man I am excited. I hope my santa gets an equally special gift, as I am just blown away!!! It is beautiful!

    I am absolutely speechless right now. I called my wife in to look at it and she is equally (well almost) speechless!!!

    Here's a little comparison to see what I was working with. Never knew how bad my BG actually was till now.

    You guys are killing it this year! Some super thoughtful gifts. Definitely makes me happy that I put in the effort to for this every time I see posts like these.

    This is a good time to remind everyone that we are coming up just a week before the mailing deadline. Please make sure you are in the final preparations of sending out your packages to make sure they arrive on time!

    waiting for 2 more gifts to arrive (they are already on their way to me), and then I will get mine out asap! this is such a cool thing that you put together every year. im not the biggest fan of this time of year, but this is one thing I do look forward to! so THANK YOU!!

    #218 5 months ago

    the final litter of my ss's gift arrived yesterday. I just need to box up everything and post it out

    who would have thought that they put a limit on just how many chinchillas you can purchase at a time?!? I had to source from 3 different farms to get enough for my ss to raise thier own live chinchilla fur coat. however, it will be up to them to train them to stay in place (coat like) when they want to wear it

    I'm waiting for one more thing to come and then I'll be sending out my secret santa box.

    Mine arrived yesterday and had some pretty cool stuff in it. My Secret Santa sent some candy, a neat pinball t-shirt, an Ash vs Evil Dead/Walking Dead tote bag, a 50 sci-fi movie dvd set (which my husband really appreciates since he loves old sci-fi movies both good and bad), a pair of cat toys with catnip, an awesome glow in the dark Tron figure, a Tilt amusements keychain and some pinball flyers and stickers. The stickers are particularly cool because I wound up with an Asteroids arcade game (not currently working but I plan to fix it) that had a bunch_ of random stickers on it and looks cool, so I've kind of been collecting stickers to add to for when I get it working and put it in my gameroom area at home.
    P1020863 (resized).JPG

    I got very different reactions to the cat toys from my cats. Beaker wasn't interested.P1020866 (resized).JPG

    Marvin on the other hand loved it and went for a full on mauling.P1020880 (resized).JPGP1020878 (resized).JPG

    And the little Tron figure fits right in with my other classic arcade figures. Thanks Secret Santa, you rule. P1020888 (resized).JPG

    On the seventh day of Pinsmas,
    my Santa sent to me...

    One Elvira coffin.
    20191207_073710 (resized).jpg

    I'm thinking these Elvira doo-dads will become a topper for EATPM.

    #231 5 months ago

    Dang! So many cool and thoughtful gifts! This is awesome

    #232 5 months ago

    So many great gifts already! I can’t wait to see what’s next

    #233 5 months ago

    I received a hand made fridge magnet from santas elves today as a pre gift because they are running behind due the the season. I will report back when it arrives. Thanks for the heads up guys.

    Wow! We just opened mine and we are so very thankful. A new game that was not even close to on our radar that looks deep and fun! We are huge co-op game fans in our house. Plus a cool pint glass my daughter has already claimed to be hers. Happy holidays and thank you very much!

    One of my favorite board games, that's quite the gift from Santa!

    I'll be wrapping my gifts today to hopefully mail Monday or Tuesday!

    Not familiar with the game at all, but was checking out some videos on it.
    Looks very cool!

    I've only ever played with 3 or more. I know you can play with 1 or 2, just no experience.

    My package! Thanks to my Secret Santa, it is amazing!

    Sorry for late post and will share a picture later

    so that everyone else in the thread isn't missing out (although it does tip my hat as to who someone's secret santa is ), I was not aware that they made custom chinchilla shipping boxes. I guess it kind of gives away the surprise inside, but "hey", I wanted the little guys to ride in style

    Quoted from undrdog:

    Mansions of Madness is one of my favorite co-op games too. It's a perfect blend of tech and cardboard. The app helps streamline the rules (also adjusts the difficulty for the number of players) and provides an engrossing story, but with the map and pieces, you still feel like you're playing a board game.

    Two player is great, as the scenarios run long and more players add to that time. If the description claims 90-12 minutes, plan for 180.

    There is even a third party program that has free user made scenarios, if you don't want to buy all the typical Fantasy Flight expansions.
