I DID put in my letter to Santa that I don't mind gently used, especially if they have an OOP I want!! I did also put though that it must come from a smoke free home. We have allergies to smoke in our house.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I do that in my letter. Several games on my list are OOP.

Feeling pretty lucky that my target was good enough to have a letter, albeit a short one, and even signed in today. Wishlist is a little skimpy. There's definitely stuff I can get but it does present an opportunity to get creative. Pity the poor soul.

how to you check what other exchanges your target is in to avoid buying duplicate items? I forgot how to do it but I know there is a way. Thanks in advance if anyone can tell me!

I see a target for you in the exchange.

Here is a direct link to your target information: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekexchange/target/247

If you don't see anything on the page try clearing your cache and reloading the page to see if that helps (CTRL-F5 on most PC browsers)

If they don't taunt how do you know that they acquired you as their target. Does someplace tell you they checked in?

I'm not satisfied with my target. No letter to santa. Only 13 games on wishlist. No comments on them and all of them are some weird games that will probably be hard to find. Expirience for first timer is not looking good so far.

My target opened profile on BGG on 2015-09-20 and his last log in was on 2015-09-30 Is this fake profile made only to get free game? Should I send game to him or not?


P.S. I didn't read original post that has excellent new change this year:
-NEW- - PLEASE check your target's profile page for his/her last login date before sending a gift! DO NOT send a gift unless your target's last login date is November 11th or later. Some people register for Secret Santa and then forget about it. If after a few days you see that your target has still not logged in since the targets were assigned please geekmail me.

Yeah I may need to ask this in my taunt. My target has a game on his list that has been through many iterations but the universally acknowledged best of them is from about forty or so years ago, and unheard of to come by new.

So while I dont want to give it away, I want to find out if he/she would prefer a used old or a new new version. Last thing I want to do is ascribe my own values to it.

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.

That letter's a good effort. Have some GG. Also, Patchwork, if you haven't played it.

I always add that detail, personally.

I believe that the original post said not to send anything to someone who hasn't logged in since 11/11. Give them a few days and if they don't show a login contact Octavian.

Nope. You have very well known games.

And i still didn't heard from my Santa. I know i know, it's early. He'll be in touch soon.

My target seems pretty quiet. I'm hoping I see him/her on this forum so I know he/she is still wanting to do this. Have game(s) picked out and anxious to get it/them sent...

Well that was stupid of me; I just transferred a pile of GG to Santa to anonymously tip my poor target in order to hook them up with an avatar and I find out Santa can't give out tips Any other way to send anonymous GG?

EDIT: Sigh
Octavian wrote:
- If you want to anonymously give your target some geekgold, geekmail me using the following format, where xxx is the amount of the transfer:

yourusername, -xxx
targetusername, xxx


That's a nice thought I had a kind user gift me some geekgold near the start of sign up so that I could get a avatar Such a kind & generous community!

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.


Naww... I hope you get one next year! Maybe you can taunt your target into adding some comments and a letter?? Hopefully you didn't get my partner.. though if you did, I have told him to write a letter now! lol
