HO! HO! HO! It's time for our 7th Annual Atari I/O Secret Santa! If you'd like to be part of Secret Santa this year please respond below saying that you'd like to participate!

Time is short to sign up! The last day to sign up is Thanksgiving, November 25th, 2021! This will give all of us time enough to take advantage of Black Friday Deals! Names will be impartially selected and we'll send you a PM with your Secret Santa information no later than Friday, November 26th, 2021.

Have your wishlist ready to go! You might also want to include a list of general interests (Atari 2600, NES, Action Figures, Comics, Mini consoles, a new watch). Remember, you might not get something super specific on your list if it's hard to find. Offering broader suggestions may help inspire your Secret Santa with a good idea!

We love classic video games and retro items, but finding vintage items in new condition is next to impossible! Therefore, gift items can be purchased USED or REFURBISHED so long as they cost around $30. Your Secret Santa package can be comprised of more than one gift, again - so long as the total value is around $30 and you've put together a gift package that you feel would be magical! (i.e. Please don't send a box of "junk", nobody wants a lump of coal in their stocking!)

Let's make this special! The presents you send should be gift wrapped. 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 Secret Santa's house to avoid paying twice for shipping. We encourage you to gift wrap your presents whenever possible!

We love creating magical holiday memories for our friends in the Forums. We're like a small town here, a warm community of friends with shared interests. For some of us who may have to sacrifice to make a special Christmas for our families, this may end up being the only presents we get to open. If you'd like to participate in Secret Santa this year but may not have the means, please send me a PM and we will try to find a way to help.

If you're unable to participate in Secret Santa this year, please consider a donation to a deserving charity of your choice. Here are a few of our favorite charities, hand-picked by Atari I/O Members over the past several years:

Sign me up 🙂

Not really collecting anymore per say, but have been trying to get items specific for my channel.

Looking for CIB Colecovison Arcade games, here is the list.

frogger
tutankham
gyruss
super cobra
spy hunter
mr do castle
bump jump
jungle hunt
galaxian
burgertime
space panic
victory
roc n rope
looping
up down
tapper
congo bongo
spy hunter

Also trying to find a loose instruction manual for Omega Race on the Colecovision, I have the box and cart just no manual :P.

Other than that, maybe a gift certificate to the Atariage Store so I can pick up a Champ Games Qix arcade translation for the 2600 when it comes out 😛

Sign me up too.  My want list will be simple this year:

- Any Atari Jaguar stuff.  (I have Cybermorph, Iron Soldier, Pinball Fantasies, and the Minter Collection already so anything else would be fine with me.  Loose carts are fine.  Anything really...I'm easy) and if that's too hard to find, I'll also do the AtariAge gift card route (I like Willie's idea of getting one of the awesome Champ Games carts).

Thank you for mentioning this!  I am still contributing to the OFB, and they are a 4 star rating at Charity Navigator.  92% of what they collect goes to the actual program.  I plan on matching the gift I give to my secret receiver monetarily to OFB. 

Thank you for setting this up.  And I hope we get a lot of participation!

This sounds fun! I might be able to participate as well, but I can’t promise anything yet. Let me get my ducks in a row, and if all works out, I’ll follow this up within a few days if I’m able to join you guys.
