I dislike the Canadiens. (The hockey team, that is, not people from Canada in general.)

Hi Santa,

I opened the gifts early:



I felt kind of guilty but I'm doing this thing where all of my unplayed games are being given away at the end of the year, so it was either open them early or never get to play them.

Good choices on all three! We played all of them on Saturday and they were a big hit. oh, and I donated $170 to the Food Bank of NWLa tonight.

Thank you so much!

Hey Santa, check out what I found on my doorstep tonight:



I can't wait to open it! Which, unfortunately, will be on Dec 30th because I'm visiting my parents over the holidays and I don't think I can take them on the plane.

I really appreciate the extra lengths you went to. I would have been more than satisfied simply with your donation. I'll throw the MSRP of these games at the food bank first thing after opening them!

Hi Santa,

Good choice on that particular food bank! They are my Amazon Smile recipient and the local charity I donate to most often. I actually volunteered there in person for the first time on Columbus Day, nice people.

You really don't have to get me a game. The donation is more than enough. But if you do I'll donate the equivalent MSRP to the food bank (in addition to matching your $50, of course).

Happy Holidays and all the best,
PP

TO MY SECRET SANTA:

Hi! It's the season of giving so I have a special request for you, laid out in an easy 5-step plan...

Step #1. Go through my wishlist and collection and comments and whatnot and figure out the absolutely best and most wonderfully perfect game for me.

Step #2. Do not buy that game. (Wait, what? No, it's okay, keep reading...)

Step #3. Instead of buying me a game I'm sure to love, I'd love it even more if you donated an equivalent sum in my name to the charity of your choice. (My preference would be a local food pantry but whatever you select will be fine, and if you need suggestions just ask and I'll help you look.)

Step #4. Send me proof of your donation and I'll make a matching one!

Step #5. Even though I'm not actually getting a game, I'd still love to know which one I woulda coulda shoulda got, so please let me know what you picked out and why. I'm terribly suggestible and that'll probably be enough to convince me to get it for myself.

Through this simple 5-step process, I get to play a great game and your favorite charity gets a double donation. Everybody wins!

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Have Games, Will Travel

In 2008, I traveled around the country a bit for my job. Sometimes I'd contact random BGG members to find new gaming opportunities. I had pretty good luck finding fun and interesting people to play with. It's a testament to the quality of the people in the BGG community.

The job I have now doesn't involve quite so much travel, and there's a surprisingly solid group of gamers in the Shreveport, LA area.

If you're passing through the Arklatex area, drop me a geekmail. We can game!

Cheers,
PP

Bellevue, NE - February 2008
- The Omaha Area Gamers Guild meets at The Game Shoppe on Fridays. I was only able to attend a few sessions, but they're a great group of people and I wish I had played with them more.

Norfolk, VA - April 2008
- The Tidewater Strategy Group hosts once-a-month Game Days. Regular attendees of TSG include Stephen Glenn and George Cummings.

Arlington, VA - August 2008
- Dan Alban dared to let a random Internet stranger into his appartment, where he hosts a biweekly Wednesday game night.
- Lee Culbreth invited me to a session of the The Gentlemen's Game Club, which meets at The Game Parlor (Woodbridge). John Downing was even kind enough to give me a ride home!
- John Kerr has an impressive collection of games, and he puts them to good use on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. (Thanks for telling me about this game, Kirsten, and congrats again on your new daughter!)

Arlington, TX - TBA
- The folks of the South Arlington Gamers demonstrated their kindness by first inviting me to their Thursday night gaming group, then reminding me that Texas is a long, long walk from Virginia.

Albuquerque, NM - September 2008
- My FLGS, Active Imaginaion, hosts a weekly boardgame night every Thursday. Two notable folks there are Chuck Puchala (whom I've hung out with quite a bit since we've met) and jeeky (who doesn't come as often as he or I would like). One of my coworkers also usually attends.

Edgewood, NM - November 2008
- Chris Leger invited me to an all-day game session at his house one Saturday, based on no more than a random GeekMail from me. It was a fantastic time. There were about 12 people there over the span on 10 hours. Unfortunately, I missed his New Year's Day event, but hopefully I'll make it out to Edgewood for his next game day.
