Nice! I hope you get some awesome games!

People from my group have signed up in the past and gotten some good games. They said that more hobbyists sign up for the specific exchanges, rather than the general stuff you get from the reddit Secret Santa. I've also heard about publishers getting in on it and sending out their games.

Re: Reddit Board Game gift exchange signups just started!
Last year was my first year doing Exchanges, I did the BGG secret santa, but missed the Reddit board game one. I'm interested how it will compare.

Has anyone here done both and want to share their experience?

Re: Reddit Board Game gift exchange signups just started!
There is some more discussion about the reddit exchange here.

I've not participated in any Secret Santa before, but I'm considering this one.

Re: Reddit Board Game gift exchange signups just started!
It is interesting to read, looks like a somewhat mixed bag of experiences.

If you haven't participated in any Secret Santa, I HIGHLY recommend you do the BGG one. Signups generally start in October. I had such an awesome experience last year, all the talking before hand with other Santas, taunting my giftee, giving them clues, etc.It was more than the gifts, it was the whole experience!

In the Reddit Secret Santa last year I introduced a new gamer to my favorite game Betrayal at House on the Hill. He and his friends had just started a group and were playing some mass markets, and trying to start DnD. He loved the game, it was a completely new experience for them! I felt awesome!

I have had mixed results with the secret santa exchange but really looking forward to this board game one. Added myself into this one and praying I can find the right game for the person I am paired with.

Almost up to 1500. I think there is a greater chance that this exchange will have more casual gamers. To me, it's more about the act of giving though and the chance to make someone's day!

over 1800 now.

Yeah, from what I hear reddit doesn't have the quality of users BGG does.

Seeing someone's reaction to a new game is awesome!

Signed up!

Now should I buy ASL or 1830 for the person asking for Monopoly?

But seriously, look forward to hooking a gamer up and/or expanding horizons!

You should buy 6 copies of Monopoly for the person NOT asking for Monopoly....

Nah, the kind with credit cards. So you lose the fun of the money.

That version's been out of print for 8 years, hence the price tag. The current version is much more reasonably priced.
