SECRET SANTA 2023!!!

The 11th Annual GNamer Forum Secret Santa~! ***A NICE QUIET CHRISTMAS WITH NO UNUSUAL INCIDENTS OR STRANGE PEOPLE TURNING UP*** Screenshot_1-066b


Once again we come to the Christmas season, a deeply poignant time that many observe in their own way. Some follow time-honoured traditions such as attending church services, some go shopping at holiday markets and some perhaps even go to visit Santa Claus themself. On the GNamer Forum, other practices are observed and respected: it’s the celebrated time of year where we can gift and receive loads and loads and loads of walloper-based sweets. Christmas is a magical, boabby-tastic time of year.

I invite you all to take part in the eleventh annual GNamer Forum Secret Santa! Hopefully our small userbase will feel compelled to join in again this year. I think the last couple have been the best ones yet, it’d be great if we can keep that good thing going.

So, straight into it: we’ll use elfster.com like we’ve done in the past. It’s here where you can add your name, address and ahead of the RSVP deadline on Sunday 19th November.

To take part in this year's Secret Santa, go to this address and follow the instructions:

https://www.elfster.com/gift-exchanges/82be2e33-d9fc-4e9c-9e71-afaeb9bd8cb2/?join=odji


The (Same Old) Rules:

• Santas will be drawn automatically early on the morning of Monday 20th November. Hopefully that’ll give you plenty of time to register your involvement, and then to buy and post presents.

• Please keep an eye on the Royal Mail’s dates for Christmas delivery. Industrial action for postal services took place on multiple dates in the run-up to the last two Christmases. The latest updates will be provided here: https://www.royalmail.com/latest-news . It would be very disappointing for anybody to miss out on their GNamer gift on December 25th.

• No matter how early your present arrives, please hold off on opening them/posting about it until December 25th. When you can, please post pictures of what you got, and your gratitude/appreciation.

• Let’s stick to a limit of £15, not including postage. I don’t think there’s any harm in going slightly over or slightly under the budget, but please don’t go too far over or (worse) too far under.

• Try and avoid emailing download codes if your geographical/personal/health circumstances allow you to. Ideally the gift(s) you send and receive should be physical, tangible things, it’s just better that way. There’ll be no vouchers for M&Co or sponsoring a goat at the local farm park or any of that bollocks though.

• Once names are dished out, please don’t post about the buying and sending of presents in the thread. That spoils it a bit - it’s easy to work out who you’re receiving a gift from that way.

• You can post if you receive your package, that’s no bother. It's helpful if you can message me when you post it too.

• If you say you're taking part and then fail to post out a present, you’ll not just be on Santa’s naughty list, but you’ll be banished to that Scottish town where The Latte Lad, The Frappe Fella and The Mocha Man will call you out for being a wank across their many, many online forums. Unless there’s a good reason, of course.

• There’s a Wishlist you can use too, if you’re wanting to help guide your Secret Santa. I trust that we should all know each other well enough to pick thoughtful and/or good quality presents, but a steer in the right direction probably won’t hurt.

Alright lads - will need to give this one a miss this year. I've been in the process of changing jobs these last few months and unfortunately, the date I joined my new job has resulted in me not getting my first pay from there until next month. It'll be a lean month!

Still, I'll live vicariously through you lot and enjoy seeing what y'all get each other. Thumbs Up!

Oh, bummer mate! I joined this job the day after pay was calculated, so I had to wait like 5 weeks until my first paycheck, living on the last of my "travelling Japan" money. I got to the night before my first paycheck with a single 500 yen coin left - which I used to buy a celebratory mcdonalds.

Aye that's why I've logged in - with a week to go there's still a few updates I think we'd all appreciate knowing about.

Organising it, I only know two forumites who have received their gifts, I know three who have sent theirs. For what it's worth, I've yet to receive anything through the post.

I must apologise to my Santa who was asking for my address which I was being weirdly coy about sharing as I wasn't 100% sure it was it my secret santa and not some random weirdo. On reflection I was needlessly awkward.

Well I joked Buska was mine and then I've got these
The 11th Annual GNamer Forum Secret Santa~! ***A NICE QUIET CHRISTMAS WITH NO UNUSUAL INCIDENTS OR STRANGE PEOPLE TURNING UP*** 20231210

I feel bad for what I got Buska last year as this is a grand haul but also shows the differnce in retro prices as Tales is £30 on its own in the UK. Will say I don't have a way to play Japanese PlayStation games, however I've gone and downloaded FFVIII Remastered of PS+, with this maybe be the pushing I need to give VIII another go after all these years.

Tales unfortunately is one of the 21 JPN GameCube games I already own. DS game Jump Ultimate Stars, I have played a wee bit of what I think is the story mode where I was running around as Luffy fighting a box, I will go back to this one and as I say FFVIII may now get a look in due to this lot.

I opened my gift yesterday, along with some bits from my nan and that (presents from the family were opened Christmas eve while we had a video call, and presents from Mercy and colleagues have been opened in-person).

If I’d got that from Buskalilly I’d have flown out to Japan to shake his hand and thank him personally. That’s an outstanding effort!

I’m really chuffed with what I received from my Secret Santa:

The 11th Annual GNamer Forum Secret Santa~! ***A NICE QUIET CHRISTMAS WITH NO UNUSUAL INCIDENTS OR STRANGE PEOPLE TURNING UP*** Img_2088

On the Elfster wishlist I’d asked for and hoped for a game to play, so to be given two is really good. I'm aware of Hotline Miami and it's reputation but have never played it - that’s the first game I’ll move onto in the New Year. I’ll earnestly give Boogie a go as well, I’m really enjoying my rhythm-action games these days and this is one I don’t really recall having played. I’d love to know the story behind the medal though…

The socks, Pac-Man nanoblock and sweets must have cost nearly fifteen quid themselves - thank you for your generousity, Secret Santa!

On completely the other hand to Cappa, I asked for "plastic tat, readable tat, and fluffy tat."  From previous years it should be noted that I'm absolutely down for edible tat as well, and Santa (whoever they might be Shifty ) absolutely delivered, ho ho ho.  The first thing to notice is that Squirtle's German name is "Schiggy", which made me grin for longer than it should have done - but in general this is a quality haul, albeit one that's already challenging any NY weight loss resolutions I might have had.  Thank you!

(The one downside: I'm getting together a lot of soft toys to go to charity shops.  Now my old Squirtle toy has to watch this much nicer imposter come in and claim its place...)
