Re: 2013 Wargame Secret Santa Grogs - EXCHANGE IS OPEN
Is there a 2012 Wargame SS Grogs link where I can look at what everyone received last year? I'm relatively new to wargaming and wanted to get some ideas on games.

The 2013 "Look What Santa Grogs Sent Me" topic that's linked to in the first post contains links to all the ones from previous years.

Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

Absolutely. It's the best way to economize on shipping costs, especially if your target is in the US.

Yes, if you're outside the US you can order online through someplace like CoolStuffInc.com, Noble Knight or NWS Online, then you can just pay for domestic US shipping. The downside is that you can't really wrap the items (CoolStuffInc might have a giftwrap option) or add handwritten notes or other goodies to the package. Some Santa Grogs like to add a personal touch.

The person who volunteered to do it hasn't delivered.

And unlike the big show, these smaller exchanges don't get the automation.

I will be having them manually awarded after the close of registration.

If someone has a design idea, please submit it and let's get this show on the road.

Re: 2013 Wargame Secret Santa Grogs - EXCHANGE IS OPEN
Well, I decided to give the Wargame Secret Santa the shot this year. The other exchange is so big that it has lost the personal feel. This one seems to be right up my alley. I really like getting into the exchange experience. Here is to a great SS this year!

Giving Munchkin to someone could actually start a new war game
