UPDATE:

I expect everyone to have their recipients' addresses by the end of the day tomorrow (Sunday 11/30). I'm working on them now - my holiday guests departed yesterday and I'm assembling everything today (Saturday).




Howdy again everybody!

Last year's worldwide 1st Annual BGG winter holiday card exchange went so flawlessly and was so much fun for everyone, how could we not have another go at it? Please check out the thread from last year:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/230569

To recap how it works: all you do is geekmail me your name and snail-mail address. Tell me how many cards you would like to send out; sending more than one card was an option many chose last year but choosing to send one card is also absolutely great.

[If you do opt to send multiple cards, I do not guarantee a "one for one" exchange rate (ie, if you send cards to 10 geeks, I am not guaranteeing you'll receive exactly ten in return). I think everyone last year was pleased with the number they received, though, so don't worry that if you send 10 out you'll only get one back. It will be way closer to ten than that.]

There is no gift element here -- just a fun way to say "happy holidays" to geeks around the world. The variety of holiday cards people sent last year was very broad, and it was fun out of all proportion to see cards from other lands, homemade cards, game-themed cards, etc. Everyone really had a great time with this.

And please be clear that people of all traditions are welcome and encouraged to participate. People of no tradition are welcome and encouraged to participate, for that matter. Part of the charm will be in receiving cards from cultures and traditions different than your own, if you ask me!

Make a card, buy a card, either way, just reach out and make a new friend. Wish a German geek "Froehliche Weihnachten!" and tell your new suntanned geek friend on Oahu, "Mele Kalikimaka!"

PS: Folks who live outside the USA:
Please make sure that you show me exactly how your address should appear on the envelopes of cards being sent to you. Address formatting around the world varies wildly and I don't want anything getting lost.

I will accept sign-ups until approximately November 26 and I should be sending out geekmails with your recipients' addresses within about three or four days after that.

Thanks again Scott for allowing me to host this exchange.

On board again this year!

I enjoyed this so much last year as the program seems to naturally expand. I had a list of names to whom I sent cards and in addition I got cards, but it was so easy and fun to reply to cards received by sending yet another card! And many that received cards did the same to me. So a wonderful, wonderful way to meet other Board game fans all around the world.

And it was an activity that keeps on giving as I did make a couple of new friends via this exchange that while I haven't had the pleasure of meeting in person, we continue to trade ideas, thoughts, experiences about games and life in general. So this is an activity that is not only active now, but will continue into the future.

I do hope I get a list of all new names, as I already plan on sending cards to everyone I was involved with last year! Looking forward to all the names and countries that I will get!

Thanks, Connie. Have been looking forward to doing this again.

Definitely in again, only question is how many cards to do. Last year, Deb ended up wanting more than the 10.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...
