All right folks, the Secret Santa 2005 was a resounding success, so Aldie and I have put together another one. I'd like to see over a thousand people get involved, so join up and have a blast.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/secretsanta/

Signups will end on December 1st, at which point you can find out who your "target" is.

Post any questions or comments in this thread, and have a terrific holiday season!

Don't forget, it's all about the giving, not the receiving!

(A microbadge may also be included - but if you're doing it solely for that, you're a Scrooge!)

This above all: To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

I have a question, Tom.

The fields ask for a street address, which I have given, but I prefer to have parcels shipped to my PO Box (safer, someone there to receive them, etc). Is there a reason you are requesting a street address?

one problem i can see with that is that some services will not ship to a po box... such as fedex i believe. i know a lot of peeps around here use fedex exclusively for shipping.

WOOHOO! This sounds fun! (How did I miss it last year?!?)

When do we get our targets, and when should our wishlists be updated by? I know I need to work on mine.

This was a lot of fun last year, and brought me what became my wife's favorite game, St. Petersburg.

Anyone want to help me expand my wishlist?

Loved it last year (got Fairy Tale, which I love) and getting the Microbadge so fast is surprising...

Woo-hoo .

How about "First gift must be a game."? From my Secret Santa last year I received a game and a subscription to Knucklebones. Should the giver's circumstances warrant it, I'd hate to restrict such an idea this year.

If not, that's cool, too. Consider it a suggestion, not a complaint. And thanks for running this.

Boy, I was about to look at my want list when something buzzed in the back of my brain. To emphasis the fact that it is WISH lists that need to be updated, you might want to emphasize or make bold this rule.
