"Christmas is the season when you buy this year's gifts with next year's money."



Since I enjoyed running the Summer Secret Santa over the summer, and a lot of people requested a higher minimum exchange, I seized the opportunity. Same rules essentially as the official Santa, only no Subtime Bonds and a much higher minimum. This is an unofficial Secret Santa, so please keep that in mind! Most of the rules/details will be copied from a previous Secret Santa and will be modified accordingly. This is NOT a replacement for John's Official GameTZ Secret Santa.

Any subscriber without a current BTR that has earned a Gold Star (Gold Star) is eligible to sign up (I know the official Secret Santa allows bronze, but since this is a higher value exchange, I'm being pickier with who gets in!)

For those of you doing this for the first time, that's okay! This is a new evolution (or devolution depending on your take) of Secret Santa, and we're all learning together! I might give Elfster a second chance, however if need be I can handle everything manually.

The quick version of how to participate:
check Post here in the thread that you would like to participate!
check Send me a PM titled " Frank's High Roller Secret Santa 2019 -- Registration"
check If approved, I will then ask you to send me your shipping address.
check Update all of your Wanted lists (on the site here) and send me a list of wants through the same PM titled " Frank's High Roller Secret Santa 2019 "
check Please send me your want list ASAP, as that will ensure your partner receives it in a timely manner.
check After you ship your gift, go back to the PM titled " Frank's High Roller Secret Santa 2019 " and say "sent."
check After you receive your gift, go back to the PM " Frank's High Roller Secret Santa 2019 " and say "received" and then be sure to thank your Santa in this topic!



The details:
Signups are open now and will continue until Friday, November 22nd at 11:59AM EST. Partners will then be assigned and PM'd out within the next couple days. Gifts must be received by Monday, December 23rd.

The target gift value for this exchange is $40-$50 US. Gifts MUST be worth a minimum of $40 US not including shipping. Every effort should be made to send a complete item. If you are sending something used, it should be complete and in at least "very good" condition. This is not a way to unload your unwanted crap. That said, if the recipient is okay with cartridge/disc only, so be it!

Unfortunately, because it is too difficult to manage, I will not be allowing international users this time. If we develop a better management system in the future, I'd love to include everybody!

Tips/Rules:
check Look at your partner's wants and check his/her lists and posts. Put the same effort into selecting a gift for your partner that you would want someone else to put into yours.
check If your partner has inadequate "wants", don't give up! Try to figure it out. If you really get stuck, try a gift card or something like that!
check Make sure you provide adequate "wants" for your Santa. There should be at least 4-5 things on your list that fit in the target price/value range.
check When you get assigned a partner, start figuring out what you are going to get them! Immediately. Don't wait until the last minute!
check In most cases, the person that you are assigned to is NOT the same person that is assigned to you. In other words, you aren't just making a 1-to-1 exchange with someone. You're buying a gift for someone that, most likely, is buying a gift for someone else entirely.
check After you've received your gift, post in this thread thanking your Santa for what you received -- just so they know you appreciate whatever it was! (Or, if you've figured out who your Santa is somehow, you can just thank them privately if you'd rather.) Don't leave your Santa hanging without acknowledging their gift!


WARNING
Some people suck. Despite our best efforts, people might still get stiffed. If you don't intend to follow through on your commitment here, please do not sign up.

That was the regular one. You can still join that one. John just hasn't started it yet.
