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 :)

Some people seem to be under the mistaken impression that A) you remain anonymous.   and B. You wait until Christmas to open your gift.

Actually always my understanding is Sercret Santa you remain anonymous and a Pollyanna you exchange names. That just how at I have always understood it. But ether way I am sure everyone enjoys it. I also like waiting to Christmas to open my gifts, gives me something to look forward to just like a little kid. Lol No right or wrong way.

The idea of our Secret Santa is that the sender remains a surprise until the package is delivered. At that time the sender will be pretty obvious from the return address in most cases  ^_^

AtariCreep can unleash the video now!

First off, I thought my Secret Santa was the best last year. And he was, it was a fantastic haul that was thoughtful and greatly appreciated. But AtariCreep has raised the bar.

 

Quick aside. I have been super busy at work and in order to force myself to stay focused, I blocked certain websites that I continually visit to waste time. This place was at the top of the list. I also recently started helping my local high school basketball team and so when I get home, I'm usually too spent to fire up the laptop and check things out here. Because of all that, I wasn't able to come up with a proper wish list. Therefore, AtariCreep only had my Want List post, as well as my vgcollect.com list to work off.

 

Here's the haul:

 

First, an awesome note, direct from the desk of Santa himself!

The wrapped presents:

31359122432_a0683091f8_z.jpg

 

First, a 2600 cart I enjoyed as a young lad which somehow escaped my hunting & gathering of the mid-90's:

30664504594_0fb679ca22_z.jpg

 

Next, not my favorite NES basketball game, but one I rented often & enjoyed (& I love the cover art!):

30664505814_bb69e74741_z.jpg

 

And the coup de grace. When I saw the "Open Me Last" gift & felt the heft of the large gift, I had a feeling it could be this. But then I thought, "No way. Not only would it be too costly, but just the sheer awesomeness of it would be too much." Alas...

30664505744_f58380b261_z.jpg

 

Yes, a console I never had but always wanted. So many games I want to play, including the one that was "Open Me Last".

 

I was blown away. I was speechless & practically in tears. AtariCreep's generosity is off the charts.

 

I've said it before & I'll say it again. This place, this community that WE'VE BUILT, is second to none. The people I've met & interacted with here are simply the best, and quite frankly have done more for me than most of my IRL friends. You guys are fantastic and I cannot thank you all enough, especially you AtariCreep. 

 

THANK YOU!!!!!!

Great stuff!

HAHA Never Row!!!! I am starting over in building my collection after having to sell just about EVERYTHING in order to move back to Boston. I have been very very blessed this past year with a number of gifted items (mainly Sega consoles) and coming across AMAZING deals such as that SNES. I just felt the need to pay/pass it forward. That's all!!!! My video on this exchange will explain it all. Just have to wait for my gift to finish the video.

I'm just teasing you man, that was very generous and very much in keeping with the spirit of Atari.IO.   Well done!
