Hey!

I'm addressing this to the people from The USA (or those, who bought games from there) - which online stores do you usually choose to buy games from? Are those listed in the "BGG 2015 Secret Santa Preferred Stores" thread the best ?

For what it's worth CoolStuffInc's coupon isn't active yet, but they said they were going to turn it on today after I called.

I thought I had signed up already and was so excited to see who my target was but apparently I didn't sign up soblue. Guess I'll have to try the 2nd secret santa batch!


Oh that's too bad Loic! 2nd chance should be just as fun though

There are tools that can track the countries of users that visit your page. I use one on my profile but not to discover where my Santa is from. You could always visit their profile using the Santa account and check if they have anything that recording visits to the page.

Just once, just once, for the love of snowflakes, I'd actually like a target that has ... more than 0 posts, an actual letter to Santa on their profile page (actually, make that any content on their profile page), ratings for their games, a decent collection I could at the very least interpret from, comments for the games on their wishlist, and shows some enthusiasm for this event.

This is the fourth year in a row I've got a not-very-fun target.

Sigh.

You can get a tracker that shows you how many visitors you've had, and what countries they are from, but not specifically who is visiting. I also don't believe there's a way to see who's "subscribed" to your posts.

It seems to be fairly complete.

Online, I usually buy from Minature Market, Cool Stuff Inc or Amazon. But I wouldn't hesitate to order from any of the others if you find a really good deal on another site.

There are a LOT of local stores in the states too, especially if your target lives in a major city.

I'm sorry. Maybe they'll respond to Santa taunting them and turn into someone really cool!

If not, you're always welcome to taunt me. Hrm... maybe you shouldn't, otherwise I wouldn't know who is my real Santa and who isn't! Unless I get a silent Santa, then it would be obvious... Or maybe I'm just over thinking things and love this exchange!

So excited! I fairly recently got back into this hobby and started building my collection. New user here, of course, and this is my first internet community Secret Santa I have participated in. I've always watched them in envy. This year, I get to share in the giddy fun. It's only just started and even the planning and preparation is making me feel like a six year old in the month or so before Christmas!laugh

I had someone like that last year, and wished for different this time round. I got someone who already has everything, including multiple copies of some Essen releases!

Though I am fairly new to this forum and have been quite active on the un-active side ninja, I am very happy with my target! Let's see whether I can spoil him, with goodies perhaps?!

Sent out my first taunt. No letter in their profile, but a sizeable game collection that has me a bit nervous!

Yay!

Target isn't too active, but has a nice wishlist. It's all fun regardless, so lets start the fun.

Oh no, don't be. While it may seem intimidating, see it more as a great opportunity to see what they enjoy and give you a good idea of finding the perfect game for them!

Last year I didn't get taunted and just mysteriously received a package one day. Here's hoping that this year Santa tortures me with anticipation and wonder.

That would be dull!! I contacted mine. I hope mine contacts me! It doesn't even have to be taunting, but a "Hey, I got you covered!" email would be welcome. LOL

On behalf of bad targets everywhere, I'm sorry! I didn't have a letter to Santa on my profile, a very small list, no comments on my list, and I'm not super active. I do apologize for being difficult! I'm still pretty new to board gaming, but I've really fallen in love with the hobby and the community. I'm sure many others with similar accounts are in the same position. I went back and added a letter to Santa and commented on my list, so hopefully that helps.
