Welcome to BGG and Secret Santa. Hope you find many fun games to play. There are a lot of groups around here in Ohio that you can join that will give you lots of opportunities to play new games.

Hmm, decisions, decisions....

My very first Secret Santa experience two years ago was great, especially sending overseas. Last year, I decided to remain in my country and I had the possibility to deliver the gifts in person (which was also very cool).

This year, I finally might have a bit more money at hand to buy presents, but I can't decide if I should stay within my country borders and make a bigger purchase for a possible recipient, or go worldwide but this way limiting the amount of gifts due to additional postal fees....

Why not go worldwide, send something small & personal from home (minor postal fees) and then use an online retailer in your target's home country to also be as generous as you like?

Now that Halloween has passed, I CAN'T WAIT to get my Target.

I'm also excited for the Christmas card exchange. I have a ton of cards all ready to be signed and sent.

Regarding all the questions/comments about what to put on your wishlist: another good practice is to write a letter to Santa on your profile page. I always let my Santa know that used games are fine with me, and that what I really care about is the spirit of the event and of the season. To me this just personalizes it a bit more. Also, when I see a letter to me (i.e. to Santa) from my target it lets me know they are excited as well, and motivates me even more.

One more potential nice touch: try to find out if your target has small children and if they play games as well. It is easy to include a small kids game that is just for them, and makes the target's family buy-in easier.

P.S. we should hit the 1700 mark today!
Yup, 1693 right now, that's awesome!
How can you find this exact number?

Sorry about that Shawn.

Good news is that we're at 1718, 3 more people and this is the biggest Secret Santa ever. Can we make it 2000 people?

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.
