    The Source Secret Santa 2019

    Wow it's November already, let's get this going again.

    The classic formula: PM me your budget, your wishlist & all that shipment nonsense and you'll get paired up with like-budgeted Santas. Also clarify if you're feeling dangerous and up for going international, because sometimes that's a whole thing.

    Cheers and merriment and whatnot!

    Let's say by this Friday the 6th.
    Pairing will be on Sunday night/Monday morning.

    That will leave a healthy 2 weeks to collect, alter & ship as required.

    Thanks guys

    I know I'm late to the party, but I totally missed this before Christmas. Having a little newborn at home also made me totally forget about it. Sadly it's so quiet on the community page that I only noticed the 4 card blind topic being active. I hope the few participants still had a good time though. Perhaps this year we can get this going a bit earlier because I've always very much liked the event!

    It was a late mailing, plus international, so it might be another week, but I'm hopeful to see the bragging soon.
    Really thank the participants, even at the smallest participation, we'll have many years of unbroken tradition.
    Thanks guys.

    It's not a coincidence. this is a meaningfull indication that you should participate in it!

    I'm glad the secret santa exists (even if i did not participate since a long time).

    Re: The Source Secret Santa 2019

    If the timing both directions is the same, I'm betting my receiver has theirs any day now. I have a mystery package sitting in my metro area with a funky tracking number and "collect on delivery" listed on it... I have a hunch that might be my santa's gift!

    Well I was half right... the package was delivered but it wasn't the one I thought it was based on tracking. It also appears customs opened the gift but fortunately left the chocolates and cards in tact :)

    My wishlist included signed pox cards, which are obscure and even more difficult to find then actual pox players, and cool pirate cards and candy. My secret Santa did not disappoint! More fitting was that the pirates travelled across the raging Atlantic from Italy to the states. It even came with a personalized mistform ultimus reminding me that changelings, too, can be pirates!

    In case it doesn't show, they are alllll shiny (except the two blue alters), come from around the world (in many languages, as pirates fly under no flag but their own) and included some nice hazelnut chocolates to snack on while I brew up some sweet shiny sea faring jank!

    Thank you very much Matteo!

    These will fit in perfectly with the shiny pirate and treasure tokens last years Santa delivered!
