HO! HO! HO!

I'm pleased to announce Atari I/O Secret Santa 2016!

 

 

 

$30 Maximum spend on gifts, $20 min spend

 

Please wrap your presents if you can! Let's make this fun!

 

Gift items must pertain to classic video games or retro culture

 

Package must arrive no later than Friday, December 23, 2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Holidays! It's time for our 2nd Annual Atari I/O Secret Santa! If you'd like to be part of Secret Santa this year, please post a message below saying that you'd like to participate. If you can, include a link to your Want List in your post, or a list of game systems you collect for. The last day to sign up is Tuesday, November 15, 2016. Names will be assigned impartially by our Moderating team, and we will send you a PM with your Secret Santa information no later than Friday, November 18, 2016.

 

We love classic video games and retro life, and as such gift items can be used or refurbished so long as they meet the criteria of costing you around $30. 

 

Your Secret Santa package can be made up of more than one gift, so long as their total value is around $30 and so long as you've put together a gift package that you feel would be magical and special. (Please don't send a box of "junk")

 

It's preferable that the presents you send are gift wrapped. We really want this to feel like something special. However, it would be okay to send an item without gift wrapping if you were ordering from an Atari vendor, Amazon or eBay and wanted to have it shipped directly to your person's house as opposed to paying twice for shipping. We would encourage you to gift wrap your presents when possible.

 

If you're unable to participate in Secret Santa this year, please think about donating to a deserving charity of your choice. One charity to consider is the Oregon Food Bank, which RickR brought to our attention last year. You can visit them online at www.oregonfoodbank.org

 

 

 

:pow:  If you would like to participate, you must sign up by Tuesday, November 15, 2016   :pow: 

 

 

 

 

Happy Holidays to All!

Sure, I'm game.  We had limited participants last year but we had fun.

I would love to see more get involved this year!

My wish list is simple.  Anything from my INTV wish list posted here in the forums.

Anything Tron related.

RPG/Fantasy games for Atari, Sega, NES, SNES...anything RPG related.

Please count me in.  I'll also do the charity donation. 

 

I'll need a little hand holding as far as how we know who our recipient is, and how to communicate our and their wants. 

 

Thanks!

Just a dumb question -- the cost of shipping is not included in the $30 max, right?
