    Relicnews Final Secret Santa

    Over the past few years we had a surprisingly successful Secret Santa where members of the community exchanged games through steam to one another and really got into the holiday spirit of giving. Seeing as Relicnews is closing down in January I thought this might give us one last good community event to take place in, almost a fitting send off to each other if we all decided to part ways.



    I thought it would be best to get a head start this year and open up a thread to allow as many people as possible a chance to take part.

    The way it worked was, everyone who signs up is then paired with a person who has also signed up – you buy a gift for them (mostly a cheap/on sale steam game) while receiving one your own. It’s quite simple.

    So post in the thread here with you name and go ahead and update your steam wish list.

    Who is in:
    Void
    Cable
    Akranadas
    titlams
    WingedKagouti
    LoneWolf666
    Homdax
    Kronoch
    Waterbizkit
    Schakal
    Mullertime
    Fixer
    Paladin
    Mokino

    Hopefully, this won't be our last event and we can get a Relic Gaming Send Off going, but I will join this one.

    I don't have much in the way of funds at the moment, but I'll set aside some money for this.

    I'm on the fence this year for reasons. I'll let you guys know for sure before the sign ups close.

    My partner has already claimed purchasing-rights to most of my wishlist... So more than happy to be surprised with an unexpected title! If my tag-buddy needs ideas, I'm more than happy to share some favourite titles / genres as a starting point

    Don't really have a wishlist, I'll be happy with whatever Santa feels I should get.

    So my intended target recipient doesn't have a Steam Wishlist that I can see. I'll have to shoot from the hip on this one.

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/waterbizkit

    Just in case my Santa needs it.

  29. Child's Play Donor Forum Subscriber  #29
    2 things. One I don't have a active wish list but I'm willing to try anything. And my target will get his gift Today (if I find your steam account ) or no later than 28th as my work has decided to send me away for Christmas. (I should of notified yesterday, I don't want anyone to feel screwed though, I'm sorry)

    Mine was also exceedingly generous. To the point I'm probably not buying anything for myself for the rest of the sale.

    Instead I'll pass my budget on.

  31. #31
    I'll post my steam profile as soon as Steam is back online, since I can't connect to it at all right now. Assuming I haven't been gifted already, which I can't really check because Steam is down

  32. #32
    Steam's back up, so here's my profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/GammaPaladin

    Wishlist (Let me know if it's not visible): http://steamcommunity.com/id/GammaPaladin/wishlist

    If we have more people sign up, we can do a second round with the people who missed out

  35. #35
    Holy moly! I thought I was being pretty decently generous with what I'd gotten for my gift target until I saw what they got for me. Was not expecting that, thanks so much! o.o

  36. Child's Play Donor Forum Subscriber  #36
    Over the moon with what I have got to be honest. Several Games, many months of gaming. Merry Christmas to you all. And thank you Relicnews Santa

    Gift sent. Man oh man was it something buying for this fella.

    "Oh I'll get him th... oh, no... he has that. Well what about the season pa... nope he's got that too. What about this random bit of DLC? Nope, has that too." Rinse and repeat for I dunno how many games. Anyway I finally pulled the trigger and here's hoping it's not a total miss. Merry Christmas to my recipient and all you other Dolts.

    Got my gift. Something I've been meaning to get for a while. Looking forward to playing it over the holidays once I get a moment. Thanks very much, and merry Christmas relicnews!

  39. #39
    Moments after I realised not having a wishlist with suggestions might be a tad inconsiderate for poor ol' Santa, BAM! What a gift! Thank you, Santa!

  40. #40
    My recipient still haven't accepted the friend invite, so gifting will wait a bit as it is a lot less cumbersome using the friend list.

    Thank you Santa! I was hoping the "Mystery Gift" idea would be a fun way of discovering a game I wouldn't normally get... and it did not disappoint!

    Thank you very kindly Santa - and happy holidays to you all!

    So if my Santa needs anything from me, a friend invite, an expanded wishlist, anything... be in touch via Steam or even a PM here if needed. Also, merry Christmas Dolts since it's actually Christmas today.

    My Santa hath struck. It's a game I've had my eye on for some time, I'm truly grateful. I hope everyone else had a great holiday.
