    HO, HO, HO!

    Now that Halloween has passed, we can officially set our sights on Christmas again and with that comes the 3RD ANNUAL PINSIDE SECRET SANTA PROGRAM! The first year we had 61 participants, last year we ended up with 113 participants, this year...who knows where we'll end up! People seem to have a really good time with this and we haven't had any Grinches in the group as everyone has come through with gifts...so overall it has been a rousing success ("LesManley knocks on wood"). Because of that, let's give it a another go this year and see if we can put even more smiles on people's faces come Christmas morning. I'll keep the Secret Santa sign up open until Friday night, November 15th. At that point I have to close it down so I can send out Secret Santa information and people can start buying their gifts. Once the sign up period has ended, I will create a new thread for all the participants and link to it in this thread.

    If you are totally unfamiliar with what this SS Program entails, here is a quick synopsis:

    Everyone who chooses to participate sends me the information requested below and is put on the Secret Santa list. After registration is closed on Nov. 15th, I will randomly choose recipients for each Santa. Every Santa will receive the list of suggestions and address of their recipient. They then locate gift(s) and send to their recipient. Everyone who participates will send a gift(s), and receive a gift(s) to open whenever they choose to hopefully bring some additional cheer to them this holiday season.

    If you want to check out the complete details and/or you just want to relive all the joy we had last year, here is the Secret Santa thread from 2018...


    If you want to participate here is what I need from you via private message...

    Your full name and mailing address

    Your email address

    Your shirt size

    Suggestions: I suggest providing a list of ideas to help your Santa out, but ultimately your Santa will decide what to get you. Not required, but if you update your collection on Pinside, include a list of your current games in the PM to me and/or mention that you also like arcade games and/or pop culture for instance, that could also help give your Santa ideas and direction. Please don't come into this with huge expectations, or have hard feelings if it's not anything on your list, just enjoy what's received. This is as fun of an experience as you make it!

    I think that's everything. I'll update usernames from PMs as they come in in this thread as well, so everyone knows I got their message and that they are included. Feel free to post in this thread that you are participating to encourage others to do so as well if you want. The more the merrier!

    Quoted from Chisox:

    At least $30 is the number to shoot for. There is no ceiling though depending on how generous people are feeling, so if you happen to get a very independently wealthy Pinsider that's in the giving spirit your dreams could come true!

    Definitely in! This is one of the most fun things on pinside annually.

    This 1000%

    #44 10 days ago

    I am 100% in this year. Thank you so much Les for doing this again this year, you are truly a saint and have brought a lot more fun to my Christmas the last two years by organizing this. Thank you to both of my previous SS’s! I can’t wait to participate this year also.

    One thing I would like to add to all participating it really helps the SS’s if you include ideas of what you like or what your other interests are in life as some years researching the web or Pinside can come up short sometimes and I know as a SS in the past I struggled a bit to figure out what my Pinsider would really enjoy.

    #45 10 days ago

    I'm in this time! PM coming later on tonight

    #46 10 days ago

    I’m in.

    #48 10 days ago

    I’m in, I’ll PM ya!
    To whoever is my Secret Santa, I am swamped with projects so things that will help restore/shop games is appreciated.
    Of course I also enjoy some of the interesting, creative stuff folks come up with!
