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

 

 

Yes, that is correct. The gift should cost more than $20 and less than $30. This is a total figure, not including the price of shipping. If you want to do three gifts at around $10 each, or one large gift at around $30, that works fine. Being that this is all about classic games and toys, it's okay if the item is used so long as it's something you think would be really special to the person you're sending it to.

 

Not a dumb question at all! It's important to clarify this stuff and get it all out in the open.

A big ole' THANK YOU! to my Secret Santa!  I got exactly what I was hopeful for! A sealed CIB Star Raiders and Pengo for my 5200!  Was not expecting the Pengo, but I do love that game on the 5200 :).

 

Now I have to bring myself to open the seal on this Star Raiders :)

Got my secret Santa gifts from Rowsdower70!  What do you think...should I open them now?

 

Without even opening, I will say thanks very much!  It's very exciting!

This is exciting seeing others get their loot. I will be sending mine out Monday only because I was just able to find an item I was looking for.

OMG!  Ha ha ha.  I started opening gifts...and out comes Combat, and another Combat...and on and on!  Well played sir.  That was funny!  The Combat top center is like super pristine Combat!  I think I'll put that one in the Combat box I have.  It's treasure to me.

And while it's no Combat...I did also get Genesis Marble Madness and Lynx Hydra (sealed!).  WOW!  Thanks so much to Mr and Mrs Rowsdower.  Really really nice stuff.  THANK YOU.
