    Did you not get a gift?!

    I got The AssCreed 3 art book but no note, and no post to tell me after I posted pics....

    I took it to mean he was asking if you got your Santee a gift, but yes, that too.

    Just a few things:

    For my Santa: I am still unknowing of your identity! You can't just leave me with your real name and a location! :(

    To @minor incident: Have I said you were an amazing Santee? Because you are - dear god, you gifted a WiiU. I will eat a vegan poutine in your honor.
    I will also check your profile to see if you're playing the games I sent you.

    No pressure. :whistle:

    So....I'm still completing the quests that my Santa gave me. This one? An Epic Journey. My Santa sent me a link with directions to a Geocache. I'd never been Geocaching but this was insanely fun.

    So...Here is the epic quest!

    It was hidden in a crook of the tree.

    Yes, that folded note has my name on it! That was seriously crazy to see. Santa, are you close by?

    Unfolding the paper brought a familiar sight...

    Isn't geocaching generally inexact?

    Also, the last location should just be your Santa's house, or your own house with Santa sitting in a spinning chair when you walk in.

    So over the last 2 days I got 2 more packages in the mail from my Santa! I guess he was mildly delayed by stuff, but I have no complaints lol.

    For starters, I got this in the mail yesterday. I'd seen it occasionally on the shelves of Card Kingdom, but never really looked into it. @Evilbadman and I played a few games last night, it's fun! I also kicked his butt, bwuahahahaha!

    Then, early this morning (Ok so more like...9am, but that's early damnit!) my doorbell rings with another package. There was a box, and as I opened it I was greeted with this ominous note.

    Inside was another note...

    And a....present?

    That beef jerky seems...familiar....

    Mmmmm......beef jerky....

    Nice, Troll Santa. I see you're pretty smart about your stalking process.

    Underneath all that was a totally-not-terrible-false-bottom of the box.
    photo12_zps8c2fa722.jpg

    I lifted that up to find another note.
    photo22_zps0d77d514.jpg

    Under the note was a code that...I'm not entirely certain if this was Troll Santa screwing with me again or not.

    On the back of the paper, another note!
    photo32_zps062a0f8a.jpg

    And actually, the note was more like a LOT of papers printed on with pictures of games. A LOT OF GAMES.

    Edit: Badman made a good point, I'd like to thank @Frem for being insanely awesome and giving me a fun and prosperous Secret Santa gift! This was definitely a good first year, and something that will be hard to top :)

    Yay! Glad you enjoyed it! :)

    (The Duke Nukem Forever code was indeed a Troll Santa thing. Because beef jerky and Duke Nukem wrapped in an American flag. Way more patriotic than Halo. I guess the fake bottom came loose during shipping; the ways of cardboard are mysterious to me. :) )

    It's GPS coordinates down to the metre! As long the kit is good (and the GPS in most modern smartphones is pretty damn good) then you should be plenty accurate as long as you have clear sky above you.

    Angel was my santa.

    I was gonna be pissed if Angel didn't get a gift.

    I got spoiled.

    @Nackmatholn again!
    This is also because of you!

    Thanks for giving me the gift of at least 2 addictions. We just finished season 3, and I cannot wait for more.

    Also, I will miss this thread :(

    I command you to live!!!


    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    With great pleasure I hereby announce the receipt of my gift!

    Behold the arrival of the glorious package (including a thorough investigation by Poes, the cat)
    UiaWSgk.jpg

    See the first attempt of taking a snapshot ruined (through some wanton rampage by Poes, the cat)

    Be thrilled to see the second attempt being photobombed by Poes

    Bathe in the glory of an successful attempt

    Dear Bunny, i could not spot your forum name, but as you can see, the book you gave (Photocrafty, 75 Creative Camera Projects for You and Your Digital SLR) could not have come any sooner - I was able to shortly flip through it and loved everything I saw :)

    I guess you spotted my relatively long time playing Civ :D - this is mostly due to this being one of the few games my girlfriend likes and is willing to play through our network. I just managed to wean her off and get her started on Borderlands 2 and now we will be going straight back to Civilization :P The game and expansion arrive just in time for the next planned board game afternoon - rest assured that well enjoy them!

    As you rightly observed, I was quite hard to stalk - I am on the forums nearly daily (managed my 9 year badge just a few days ago) but I mainly lurk. And yet you managed to come up with great gift ideas so thank you very much!

    Oh wow, that game is excellent! I don't get to play it near enough, but they did an amazing job turning Civilization in to a board game.

    Yay, Christmas in February :rotate:

    Glad you like the gifts. I know all too well how frustrating multiplayer games of Civ V can get at times, so the board game seemed like a good choice given the great reviews and my own experiences with other games from the same company. The book was just something I hoped would have a few fun tricks you might get something out of, given your past participation in photography/camera threads.

    Ok, one more thing arrived today - apparently a package that got lost in shipping :/

    Forgive me for bringing a dead thread back to life, but I didn't want to make a new one to ask when sign ups start for G&T SS 2013. Last year sign up opened at the end of Sept. I know it's early, but a few people always miss the sign up period, so the longer it is the better.

    Last year was super early because 2011 was somewhat late and people complained. I haven't gotten word from Hypatia yet, but presumably something will happen within a week or two.

    Be patient.
