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!

So I've been away at training for the last 4 days and came back today to find a pile of boxes waiting for me!
I'm in a couple of secret santas and wasn't sure what boxes were from which so I just snapped a group photo. To the inside!
This one had no note with it so I'm not sure who it's from exactly. Hope I guessed right!
The message reads: I hope you don't already own something like this, and that you and yours find the time to enjoy it. Simple seemed better with your near future life adjustments ;)
OMG dem eyes Jake, dem eyes.
The message reads: Your last gift (so far) is one I'm really happy to give. It's a favourite of mine and the forums' at large, so I'm pretty confident you'll find time with this one well spent. Merry Christmas! < 3 ~ ArcticLancer
Some of you have guessed the contents I'm sure:
I've seen this pop up on the secret santa thread in particular, but I don't know anything about it so I'm looking forward to checking it out!
The cookie brigade are the people who wander around PAX handing out biscuits and taking donations for Child's Play.
They sound like very nice people. Probably not a thing she would be interested in though, she doesn't care about Penny Arcade or PAX in the slightest. I tried to get her to join in at the Artist's Corner because she's very artistic, but she's not really much of an online person at all. Maybe checks her facebook once a week or so? She spends most of her spare time carriage driving, much of it for a charity group very similar to the RDA.
We really need bakers, so if she'd be willing to just bake stuff for us, we'd be ever so very grateful.
What kind of stuff were you needing baked? I am a cooking person, so if I have the time I might be able to contribute a bit.
Anything a hungry convention goer might like to have really, as long as it doesn't have to be kept cool or hot and can be done up in individual baggies. Chocolate chip cookies are always popular, but at previous PAXes we've had lollies, musk sticks, Anzac biscuits, fudge, cheese straws, gingernuts, shortbread, etc. in addition to US staples like peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies, oatmeal cookies, M&M cookies, etc. Geek theme usually goes down super well - we had one really clever baker last year who created minecraft edibles: water, stones, grass, and dirt. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1UUwPGCMAMA6Vq.jpg and of course bacon chocolate chip is immensely popular.
