    Okay so Christmas is here or will be in a few hours for most of us. So lets get the Secret Santa thing rolling. Members were told to exchange gifts with other members. Lets say member A is sending one to member B. Member A will have sent a code with the gift to member B. Member B can now open the gift, and post pics of it along with the code member A sent.

    Now for those naughty people who didn't send anything.

    WARNING! Spoilers inside!


    But in all seriousness not cool, and I'll probably be giving you negative feedback in the Trading Forums unless I get a good excuse. PM me if you didn't get a gift but sent one. (Oh and if you sent your gift late, also PM me. No punishment for the postal system being late.)

    I never got mine.

    I sent my gift out about 2 weeks ago, but never received one in return.

    Got it. I'll be contacting your Santa shortly. He was in the US so there's really no excuse.

    I also haven't gotten mine, but I want to give Devin a chance to verify with my Santa whether it was shipped in November or December because I signed up for an international exchange.

    Tis better to give than receive I guess. It saddens me a little, but I'm still going to give away some Humble THQ Bundle Steam codes away tomorrow morning anyway.

    I actually sent, but probably was late for the actual swap date. Also, I sent surface mail so probably not a good thing.

    I didn't get mine yet either...but that's okay. :D

    :/ I think we're going to have to promote it earlier if we do this again in 2013. And be serious about reminding people to ship before December begins. Way early is a far better outcome than even a day too late.

    I haven't received anything. Unless you sent me PS2 memory cards, in which case, sorry I sent them back modded. Said cards probably won't get there till next year.

    I got my gift a week ago :)

    I'm sorry I was so late shipping my packet, circumstances conspired against me :( But it's on its way.

    Mine came from Canada. The code word was INGOT, and it's a bento box and a bunch of dividers and picks for it, and a postcard and a greeting card and a Canadian moose quarter (of a dollar. Not a quarter of a moose). I love it ^_^

    Thank you :bow:
    Hope mine doesn't take too long getting there :(

    I still haven't received mine, so I have nothing to take pictures of. And I don't think I have a working camera anywhere.

    Awwww... shoot. I knew I forgot something... I didn't stick my secret word in the package (it was Umbra). The recipient should be able to connect it based on my username and shipped name alone, though. ^_^

    But anyway, onto the package I received from my lovely secret santa. The word included was Tapioca, and this is what I received:

    [IMG]

    Dr. Doom & Spidey capsule head ball figures. Their heads were ball capsules that popped open and contained their body parts. Their head then snaps back together into a ball shape and forms the head around the neck of the body. Really, really cool, I love em! Also included 2 American Gold Eagle Coin (1933 double eagle) replicas! These are also friggin awesome! I work for a jewelry shop, and we follow gold trends/futures all the time, I know exactly the role these things played in the past year and the stories surrounding the coin. Not only that, but I personally think it is one of the most beautifully designed coins in American history! Very awesome!

    Dr. Doom & Spidey fit in perfectly on my shelf of adorable stuff:

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH SECRET SANTA!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!! ^_^
