The 2017 Print 'n Play Secret Santa Official Forum Announcement!

Hey there everyone! Has it really already been an entire year? How time flies it seems! As always welcome back for another year of being Santa!

This is my third year to run this Secret Santa. I have enjoyed participating for the last 5 years

Some people wish we had more time for crafting and hopefully by starting it up a little earlier, it will give everyone a little more wiggle room for crafting!

The rules continue to seem to work for us so we'll use them again for this year!

So enough babbling and let's get this started!!!


2017 Print 'n Play Secret Santa!


Introduction to Secret Santa Print & Play
On the boardgamegeek, there are a plethora of FREE games, there for the taking! The catch? YOU have to make them! Some simply require you to print and cut out, while others are much more complicated. In addition, you can make a quick player's copy, or take your time and make a masterpiece.

1. TO ENTER Sign up at the GeekExchange at this link: 2017 Print 'n Play Secret Santa!

2. The cutoff is November 5th, Sunday! Sign up before then. Signing up late DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU A SPOT. GET IN NOW, Don't wait!

3. You are expected to create a Print and Play game and pay for the postage to mail it to your target. You will be allowed to select which countries you want to ship to but please be mindful of our overseas friends. They need to have some people willing to ship to them as well. If you can manage it you will find it to be greatly appreciated by myself and your target as well. Please put some time and TLC into your creations - and remember that this is about the giving, not the receiving. This means that you don't have to be a Print and Play expert to participate! So don't be afraid to sign up even if you've never PnP'ed before.

4. NO remaking copyrighted games without permission. No one is going to go around and be the copyright police - just keep in mind that creating a game that designers are trying to make a profit with is hurting the industry, and our hobby as a result.

5. A minimum of 10 (10. Not 5, not 2, not even 8) pages of components is a good "guideline" for printing out. Zombie In My Pocket for example, has 2 pages of components. So you should print out another game. Of course, feel free to do more! This is about the giving.

6. Don't forget to use the Secret Santa BGG account to taunt the heck out of your target when they are assigned. It's really a lot of fun!

7. Remember during this month to look at your own lists of owns, and update your wishlist accordingly. Last year we used a geeklist wishlist and will do the same this year 2016 Wishlists So that your Santa could easily find something that fit your flavor of board game!

8. Did I also mention for participating you might get a neat EXCLUSIVE/RARE/IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OTHERWISE Geekbadge? I do not know how to do this and will need some help to make it happen.

Past years:

2010: mb
2011: mb
2012: mb
2013: mb
2014: mb
2015: mb
2016: mb



If you've got a suggestion on what you'd like this year's badge to be, post it up! I'll try and pick the one everyone seems to like the best and make sure they go out.

As always feel free to ask me any questions or post them here for quicker responses from veterans of our hobby!

MERRY CHRISTMAS and lets get some homemade presents under those trees!

I'll give this a try.

So should I update my want list to include more PNPs? Wasn't quite sure if that was what it was saying in the instructions.

In case anyone is interested in this exchange, but feels the printing and assembly requirements are too much for them and would like to ease themselves slowly into the world of print-and-play Secret Santas - or finds this message too late to enter the main event - the low-stress Mini-Print-and-Play Secret Santa exchange is now open, with registrations closing on the 17th of November:

This year, I managed to join the exchange in time again. Then had a few days of contemplation, came to my senses, decided that The 2017 Mini Print'n'Play Secret Santa is probably more up my alley and deleted my registration now. cry

I wish lots of fun to all you who are entering the "big" PnP Secret Santa!

So, after no suggestions for change, I submitted the above microbadge to the design forum (ie, the first step in the process), and it would help it along, if you could pop over there and thumb this post.

Still open to taking suggestions on it! Thanks!
