Just a reminder: Sign-up is open through November 26th (Thanksgiving). Later that night or the following morning we will be sending out PMs with the information you'll need pertaining to who you will be buying for, what their mailing address is, a link to their want list, etc. As long as you've posted in this thread stating you want to be a part of Secret Santa we will be sure to include you. If you've posted a link to your want list in this thread, we will make sure to share that with your Secret Santa too.

 

If you have never received buttons or won a prize from Atari I/O please PM me with your Mailing Address!

 

Thanks!

I'm going to think hard on this one guys. I do like to give more than receive and like was mentioned in the Atari day thread on the 26th of the month about engaging people in conversations about Atari and going the extra mile by loaning stuff out, I have done that on my own in the past. I gave away, for keeps, a complete refurbished 5200 and all the top games to a friend who saw it and how much he loved his as a kid and wished he still had it...gave it to him as a moving away present, though I was the one moving away. I did a similar thing with a Flashback 2 unit when the guy told me he remembered his 2600 fondly and he was in bad way financially with nothing to do at home. I love doing that stuff. I am just not sure if I can do it this year as I recently moved and probably won't be fully settled into my new life and home until after the holidays. But I have good stuff on hand, but not sure if I'd end up with the right person to match the stuff. But I may be able to swing a purchase still, I will post yay or nay on the 26th. I LOVE the idea, as well as the junk-box and 26th Atari day stuff!

Also I forgot to include. To whoever was assigned with me. My video game consoles I currently own are listed in my profile page and also my game room photos are posted in the game room forum. It should help out in selecting games or hardware.
