Cards Against Humanity: 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit » Forums » General
So, I received my first thing from the 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit thing--
--which was a box of 12 boxes of instant mashed potatoes.

Twelve boxes.

Of instant mashed potatoes.

All I can figure is that I entered "Mashed potatoes" in that "What do you want for Christmas?" field when signing up for this thing. It's a bit of an inside joke -- I do like mashed potatoes, yes, but I do a damn good impersonation of Wendell from "Emmett Otter's Jugband Christmas" when he asks the mayor, "You got mashed potatoes?" -- which I entered to be cutesy. I had no idea it would get me twelve boxes of potato flakes, though.

I still haven't received anything else through the standard mail, though. Should I be worried that stuff is getting lost in the mail?

I haven't gotten anything yet. I emailed and here's the response:

"We started sending Holiday Bullshit gifts last week via USPS. Mail is slow right now because of shitty weather, but we expect them to start arriving any day and everything should arrive before Christmas.

If for some reason you don't get everything by the end of the month, let us know & we'll make sure Santa brings you all 12 of your presents. Cheers!

- David & the CAH Team"

Oh, and I also ordered tea a couple of weeks ago and the shipment was delayed a number of times. The last one was due to "Train Derailment". No, I'm not kidding.

Anyone in Canada get their's yet? Considering Canada Post didn't even attempt to deliver my Coup/Flashpoint kickstarter, just not surprised.... =(

I received two letters so far.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The first one had an expansion pack of cards and a note with an easy substitution code on it. The second one had a tiny bag of coal.

So far we've only received one thing.

As a suggestion for the BGG staff - wouldn't it make more sense to condense any of these gifts/expansions as one item?

One tidbit - my better half pointed out that all the letters were sent out bulk rate, which means the delivery is going to vary widely (says someone who works in the direct mail industry). So you could get several on the same day, and some folks may get most of theirs before others get even one.

Your suspicion that your day 12 gift is related to your "What do you want for Christmas" answer is making me kind of nervous... in the spirit of the game, I said "A handjob under the mistletoe".

I'm a bit nervous. I have no idea what I wished for now.

We (the wife and I) got 2 and 3 so far. I am scared as to what she told them she wanted for Christmas.

Edit (12/18): 5 showed up in the mail.

Well Saturday I got the envelope with some pictures in it. I figure it was day 6 because it had "6 geese a laying" on the outside. Still no day four five, or beyond six.
