Secret Santa XI - Santas are no longer secret!

198 posts in this topic

It is that time of the year again, to sign up for the ASOIAF world-wide Secret Santa.

As a way of getting to know each other better and bringing us closer together, every year for the past 10 years we have had a Secret Santa "game" here at Westeros. It has been a great deal of fun, and I am proud to once again host it.

You do not need to celebrate Christmas to participate.

We do have a $50 US gift amount. Please be mindful that this doesn't include shipping. I highly recommend using a site such as Amazon to ship the gifts, as postage can be very expensive.

I say this every year, but it needs to be said again:  PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE SURE YOU CAN PARTICIPATE!  You have about a month to decide. 

You can see how previous years worked here and here and here

It works like this:

1) Sign up between Oct 1 and Nov 1;  Answer at least one of the questionnaires either in the thread or send to me privately;  PM me your address, even if you have played before. Unless I have permission*, I do not keep your addresses from year to year. (*if I send you Holiday Cards, I have your address)

2) Nov 1: I will use random.org to assign you a giftee; secretly find out everything you can about your giftee (questionnaire, reading their posts, etc); Buy gift(s);  Ship before Dec 1 (I will post shipping deadlines provided by the US Postal Service and others); PM me when you ship (I'm pretty anal about keeping track of things

3) Receive your gift--try to guess who it is from; Post in the thread about, even if you don't open it until Christmas, so your Santa doesn't worry that the gift was lost (this has happened, gifts have even been stolen, but Amazon replaced the stolen ones, another reason to use their service) or just PM me that your gift has arrived

The Santas:

Lany Cassandra

Zar Lannister

Turinqui-Calima

Mlle. Zabzy

Rocksniffer

HelenExMachina

Destiel's Child

King Tyron I

Theda Baratheon

Anything else your SS should know about you?

I'm easily pleased. There are a few suggestions above but I will be happy with more or less anything (no animal carcasses please...) I'm a big drinker of tea and coffee, so gifts of that nature are well appreciated. I also like a drink of an evening, my particular tipple being vodka, though I also enjoy a good bottle of cider too (my favourites are the berry ciders - Smirnoff do a really nice raspberry and pomegranate). 

Do you have any wish lists?

No
