VGCollect Secret Santa 2020! Buy time!
« on: September 17, 2020, 10:53:11 pm »
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages ... VGCollect proudly brings to you its SECRET SANTA of the world!
***Copying and pasting last years rules***

If you want to participate this year, please post your name on this thread. I want people to have been members of these forums for at least 3 months prior to this and some sort of activity here. We have had 7 years so far of 100% success and we are not going to fail this year! Sign ups will be up through 10/08. Once its done, you have a week to send me your wish list, address info, and what not. Also include if you are willing to send out of your own country cause every year we get non US participants.

When you reply on this thread, post what you think the spending limit should be. I will take the most popular option and that's what we will go with. And since I'm mentioning it ... if the limit is $100 (an example) please don't send someone $10 worth of crap. The limit is more of a guideline as to what to expect to spend. Almost everyone here the past few years has went over the limit for their participant. Within the time of sending in the wish lists, if the limit becomes more than you want to spend, let me know and I can remove you from the list. No hard feelings will be had.

Every year we have a reveal thread and IIRC, Kashell/Dash/Turf and a few others actually do theirs on their YouTube page. If you wish to wait to open your gift til Christmas, that is definitely your prerogative. However, I would like to ask that no one posts anything about their stuff til after Christmas.

And the new stuff ... Please mention one of 4 options for gift receiving. 1- Please only go off of wish list 2- Use wish list if can but willing to accept items not in collection 3- Wish list is just a suggestion. Any and all gifts welcome (as long as not duplicates, decent condition, meets spending minimum) 4- Will not mind anything!
If you are late sending me your wish list, expect to be lumped into the 3 or 4 category or going to be bumped off the list all together.

Sign ups are closed. Time to send me your wishlist/address and your #1-4 preference. I will close these next Friday morning. If you do not send me a message in that time, you will be removed from this. I get stuck reassigning every year cause someone is late and Im not really going to mess with that this year. You have an entire week to get message sent. Wishlist is entirely up to you. Does not have to be gaming related. The only thing I ask is that you be specific as you want (including your 1-4 option). Please include your shipping info as waiting on it delays your Santa.

Wishlists are all in. You will receive a message with your giftee within the next day or 2. Will update this when done.

ALL RIGHT! Everyone has been sent their giftee. Christmas is 2 months away. Thats plenty of time to find a gift and get it mailed. ****Once you have mailed your gift, please send me the tracking info****

Lets have a great VGCollect Secret Santa!

Just got back from taking a friend to the airport to find this thread?! Hell yeah.

I'm in. I think we should do $35 this year but I'm fine with $50 like in previous years.


EDIT: I'm option 3. As long as it's on my wishlist in some form or another my Santa is welcome to add it :)

2020 has been rough, y'all. We need some sunshine. Sign me up. I'm good with 50 dollars.

Put me in category 2.

I'll participate again if only to torture yet another person with Cincy-style chili.  ;D I'm like 0-4 so far.  :o

Got my SS2019 Wishlist on my desktop still so just need to add/delete a few things and it's good to go.  ;)

I’ve done the spaghetti with chili and cheese on it since. It’s pretty awesome. That skyline chili with cinnamon in it is not good though. That Skyline hot sauce is fantastic. Worth the price of admission!

I'm in, Option #3 please.

Also I can only have an American this year due to pandemic/postal service troubles.

I'm okay with the $50 limit.

Your wishlist can be filled with whatever you want. I like to include as many things as I can since options are helpful.

Given the current pandemic, I'll be doing most of (if not all) of my shopping online. Otherwise, I'd go to my favorite stores and shop around.

Yeah, you can provide your VGC wishlist, or a more/less curated wishlist.  Best logic is not to have a wishlist that is too small (read as get me exactly this) or only $50 things.

If I participate, my hope is to not have to shop online and I'll part with things from my own personal collection... probably no tootsies because I ain't goin shoppin.

To make it a worldwide Secret Santa event, I will join in of course :)

EDIT: Option 2,
(Sorry but I find the development this year of excluding Europe by many participants nasty)

I was just watching the archive stream from last year's opening, what a total blast that was. I hope we can top it this year!

Yea, I was thinking, given the way things are going with the pandemic, and the post office getting screwed up here in America, I would have to do the shopping online.

So, whoever I'm assigned, I should look on their wishlist here and get them something off it?  Sounds easy enough.  I'm game.

I'm in as always- $50 is fine with me, and I'd ask for U.S. only for my recipient. 

Category #3
