Gift Geeklist: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/48644 Please post your gifts when you receive them!

This is a Secret Santa aimed at spreading around second hand or out of print wargames, as well as the more available new ones.


In an attempt to keep this simple for this year: minis will not be considered a wargame, sorry.


Rules:

1. All BGG members may join, you have until November 16th to join. At this point, I will randomly assign targets to each person who is involved in the Secret Santa. There will be an assistant proctor (Herr Oberst) who will handle a few of the names so I will also be blind as to who has me as their target. Sorry, no way around this as I don't have access to the fancy software.

2. The Wargamers' Secret Santa will be international. Due to the relatively low numbers of wargamers, there is no feasible way to break this up. If you do not wish to send to a foreign country, I ask that you do not join. Remember to factor in shipping when you consider joining.

3. You must update your Wishlist, Pre-orders, Previously Owned, Owned, For Trade, Want in Trade, For Sale, and Sold lists. Go over your profile as well and add any information to update it that you feel may be relevant to the WSS.

4. When you receive your target, go over their profile and the various lists within. From this info, you can decide what game to send your target. The gift does not necessarily need to be from the lists, but it should at least be thoughtfully chosen. You should not join if you are just looking to dump an unwanted crappy game.

5. You should at least send one game to the person you are giving a gift to. If you wish, you may go above and beyond sending additional games but this is not expected. It would be cool if you could try and personalize the gift, possibly with a card or with a book or magazine on the topic as suggested by kjuice. The game given can be either new or used if it meets Rule 6.

6. The game given must be complete in its contents, meaning it is playable and legible. For those receiving, do not expect a mint game as the gift may be upwards of 20 years old.

7. Wargamers' Secret Santa is all about the giving, not the getting, so be prepared that the person who is sending you a gift may be a jerk and not do so, or send you crap. Idiots do abound - and I urge you NOT to join the Wargamers Secret Santa unless you plan to send a gift; this isn't "get a free wargame for nothing" club.

Post any discussion or questions to this thread.

How do I sign up?

You will sign up by sending a trade request to me, Santa Grogs.

The BGG Trade Feature will help us with tracking and accountability.

What does that mean?

Once everyone has received their packages you will receive a positive trade rating from Santa Grogs. Should you be unable to fulfill what you sign up for you will receive a negative trade rating.

Please note - giving a negative feedback is the absolutely last thing we want to do. The Santa Grogs admins will do everything we can to make accommodations for people who have issues but it is up to you to communicate with us to help us help you Assuming we are able to work out an acceptable alternative no bad rating will be given.

More than last year! Thanks to all participants.

If you do not see your name, it is either because you have not submitted a trade request or Santa Grogs is too busy pushing some counters to have updated this list.

Now that I have enough for an avatar, I need an excellent suggestion for the image.

Any ideas?

As for the microbadge, we can either self design it or beg

That microbadge from last year was great. I just wish I hadn't missed it, so I could have one.
