Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

G&T Secret Santa 2014: Until next season....

Sign ups are now CLOSED!

What is this?

It's pretty much Secret Santa, except with partial strangers.

You sign up, you buy a forumer a gift, you get a gift, you post your gift on the thread, we all experience the joy that comes from getting gifts from strangers that are probably better than the gifts your own family gets you.


How does it work?


(1) Read this entire post
(2) Sign up using the instructions below
(3) Wait until I dole out your Santee
(4) Stalk your Santee and figure out what he or she likes
(5) Buy your Santee something he or she will like (minimum $25) & ship it to them by December 31, 2014.
(6) You, yourself, will receive a gift. Take pictures of it and post them. This is not optional.
(7) Take joy in an awesome tradition of happiness and goodwill towards your fellow P-A forumers!

You will be BANNED if you do not send a gift by the deadline.
Also a lot of forumers will have your address. I'm not condoning anything... I'm just saying.

Sign-up Conditions
You may only sign up if:

snowflake.png You joined the forums before January of this year. If you joined after this contact me and you may be admitted on a case by case basis.

snowflake.png You are full of joy and awesomeness and prefer giving to receiving.

snowflake.png You are willing to pay international shipping. If you get someone on Mars, then prepare to ship something to Mars.

snowflake.png You can afford $25 + shipping, or create something at least $25 worth of awesome. I will leave this to your discretion, but if you send a box of leaves or poop or a drawing of a penis then expect RETRIBUTION. Unless of course it's a particularly good penis drawing. Okay seriously don't send a penis drawing.

snowflake.png You're okay with maybe getting something that you don't like. If members of your own family get you crap that you don't like, I wouldn't have high hopes for strangers on the internets. I will not entertain complaints that LewieP gave you Halo 3 and beef jerkey wrapped up in an American Flag; but you only like stuff from Japan.

snowflake.png You are going to send an appropriate gift. Seriously, no porn, anything dangerous, anything illegal, or anything that could be considered bad by someone's parents. You don't know how old your Santee is, his moral leanings, and all that. If you have to ask, I wouldn't send it. Err on the side of caution.
