Title: RFGeneration Secret Santa 2017!!!!!!
Post by: wildbil52 on October 31, 2017, 08:13:46 AM
UPDATE 1
All Secret Santa match letters have been sent out.  Happy Hunting!


PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST, PEOPLE MISS DETAILS EVERY YEAR AND IT LEADS TO QUITE A BIT OF WORK TO TRACK BITS OF INFO FROM A DOZEN OR SO PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T READ THE POST

It's Secret Santa time again! Here is how it works:

Step 1 Reply to this thread with something like "I'm in" and I will add your name to the list

The cutoff for signing up is Friday, November 17th

Step 2 Send an email to rfgensanta@gmail.com The subject line should look exactly like this:.

User Name-Your Country-Country or Countries you are willing to ship to

EXAMPLE If I am in the USA and I am willing to ship to the USA and Canada:

Wildbil52-USA- Will Ship to USA, Canada

Copy and paste this text for the body of your email and fill in the blanks:


Dear Santa
Iíve been a VERY ___________ boy/girl (choose one) this year, so I feel like I have earned all of the __________ that I will probably get for Christmas from all my family and friends.

But I also want video games.

If I could get just one box of video games and/or video game related items with a total combined value of at least $20 before shipping costs, I would hope that the box would have___________ in it.

And I would prefer that it didnít have any __________ in it.

Since I am a responsible collector, my entire collection has been meticulously entered on rfgeneration.com (OR i is entered at this location: [link to your collection here]) so that you can see what I already have.  You can also check my RFGeneration wishlist to see what I really want more than anything in the whole wide __________.

Please remember to send out my domestic package by December 9th or my international package by December 1st so that I donít receive my package late and have to resort to _________________ on Christmas morning.

Thank you, Santa!

Sincerely
(RFGen User Name)
(Real Name and Shipping address here)

A note on writing your letter

As far as your wishlist goes, Be as specific as you want or as general as you want just remember that the more options you give your Santa, the easier you will be to shop for.  Say things like:

I would like any NES carts not already in my collection

or

I would love to get some spare controllers for NES, SNES, Genesis, or Saturn.

or

I would really like to get any of the following SNES games: x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, etc.

Add as much room as you need, you don't have to say what you would like to get in just a few words.

Step 3
Once your package arrives, or on Christmas morning, post pics of your Secret Santa package here (and in Small Scores if you like)

The MINIMUM value of the items you must send to your Secret Santa is $20. You may give more if you choose, but $20 is the minimum.  There have been issues in years past with people feeling a little short changed so if you are unsure about what you are sending, give a little more, after all, itís Christmas!

Due to the scams of years past, The RFGen Secret Santa 2017 is available to established RFGen members OR to anyone who has an established member vouch for them.  If you are unsure if you are an established member, shoot me a PM.



Participating Members

a bold member name signifies that Santa has received and reviewed your letter and no further action is necessary.  Please allow a few days from when you send your letter for your name to turn bold.

I'll provide a few more details and the ground rules in the Official 2017 NSSS thread, which will be posted on November 9th. Thank you for your attention, and happy holiday wishes to you and yours.

I'm in for this! Will send the email tonight.

One question though. Is there a generally accepted way to value games if we have something in our own collections that fits the bill and we're willing to gift? I usually check pricecharting.com, but I'm not sure if there's a better way.

Price charting, recent completed online sale prices, retail stores, as long as you are in the ballpark you are good.  When in doubt, send more stuff.

Got mine. Just for my info since this is the first year for me, do you usually put return names/addresses on the package or keep it secret?

It's up to the sender.  lots of members know each others addresses so its hard to make it a total secret

Forgot to put in my letter this year, even if our collection list has 0.0.0 for G/B/I, if it is in our collection list here we own it, we just haven't gone back and specified.  Sorry SS  :P

Kinda excited, got our letter and I think we can do well by them.  :D

Yeah, up to the sender and most of us figure it out anyway. My thoughts, better to have a return address just in case there is a shipping problem than a gift not arrive.

my package arrived today. I would have waited until Christmas, but I thought it was something I had ordered for my wife haha.

Anyway, my Santa killed it. I had mentioned that I was really into collecting for my Xbox One right now - and specifically interested in backwards compatible games.

(https://i.imgur.com/qw3s9E9.jpg)

I received the Mass Effect Trilogy, which I've only had limited experience with 1 and 2 in the past, and keep meaning to return to them. I also got Fable III which outside of the card game, I really have no experience with the series. And I got Mighty No. 9, which was awesome. For all the flack the game has gotten, I've been interested in playing it for myself - especially with the recent announcement of Maga Man 11. So yeah, I'm pleased.

:D

I heard your Secret Santa wanted to get a game from the Xbox but there are only 13 games available for backward capability.  I heard he also wanted to start out with Fable but it isn't on the list of compatibility, either.

My package showed up today, some pretty great stuff in there. I gave Santa a lot of room to work with, just asked for anything weird or unusual, and he didn't disappoint. I mean, an Aeon Flux UMD?? Awesome lol. I need to figure out where I put my PSP and clean the dust off hahaha. Thanks Santa! I sent my stuff on Saturday so it should arrive tomorrow.

Thanks Santa!  Your letter was kind, the UMD collection is nifty and fits right into our collection, our kids stay up almost every night reading strat guides, Peach was one of the Hot Wheels we were missing, and the Skittles will spend their brief, fleeting existence at work tonight.  :D
Also, I don't know where you found that rare Halo 3 guide with the "derpy helmet" variant, but I'm guessing its super rare!   ;)

Another Secret Santa Success!

Oh boy! Lookit this! Santa sent me a wonderfully varied package. I'm not extremely knowledgeable about Street Fighter (or good) but this seems to be the definitive 16 bit port. Maybe I can gitgud with a fight stick now. Bust a move is one of my favorite puzzle games and I remember playing this one at a friend's house and loving it. Very happy to get my hands on an Adventure Island game. Classic Hudson has yet to let me down. As for Mario Land, you mentioned I didn't have it yet- an erroneous statement but understandable as being zealous about gameboy games could make you see things. ;)
Much appreciated! Every year doing this has been a great time both giving and getting. Looking forward to next year!

I got my Secret Santa gift a few days ago, but I've been too busy/lazy to post it here.  I've been following the thread, and it looks like everyone is getting some great gifts!

(https://i.imgur.com/PZcmYqq.jpg)

Special thanks to NeoMagicWarrior for sending me some great stuff!  I specifically asked for SMS stuff since I haven't gotten anything for that system in forever, so Alien Syndrome will be a nice addition to the collection.  Die Hard Trilogy is a game I owned as a kid but surprisingly don't have now, so that's cool to have.  I remember playing Wario Ware on the Wii some 10 years ago and having fun with it, so I'm glad to have this entry in the series.

Thanks again NeoMagicWarrior!

I think this is the first year that I haven't figured out who my Secret Santa is. But, whoever you are, THANK YOU so much for the generosity!  All of these games were on my site wishlist and I am very happy to add them to my collection. The Mario Party 5 is the last pre-Wii Mario Party game that I needed and am happy to cross that off with this copy (the note is great!).

I wrote in my letter that I feel like I have earned all my Tacos for Christmas.  :laugh:  Also, I said I wanted no Mermen and they threw in a picture of Mer-Man from He-Man.  I love it!  He-Man was my favorite cartoon growing up.  I had almost all of the figures.  I also love the catalog!  Great nostalgia.

Hello all.  Sorry for the delayed post everyone.  Christmas has been a lot busier than usual.  I got my package shortly before I left town and got some amazing Gamecube games to add to my collection.  Thank you Secret Santa!  I'm really looking forward to playing all of these as I somehow missed them when they were released not so long ago.  

BTW - does anyone know of a good Y/R/W to HDMI box for a modern TV and the GCN?

Look up bad add consoles he is making a plug that goes in the digital port on the GC and outputs hdmi. There are also a few other people making them. Just do a search

So sorry for the super late post. My package arrived a couple days after X-Mas, but I've had a crazy busy post Christmas week. Finally have a chance to sit down in front of a computer for a bit today and catch up. My SS went super overboard and made this crazy customized Mega Man goodie box for me. And even beyond what is posted here he sent a bunch of stuff for my son as well (Pokemon Cards and some other vintage Nintendo related cards). Thank you so much Adam! The snowglobe Mega Man is such a neat item. All of these little figures have invaded the shelves throughout my gameroom. And while the Madden game might seem lame to some, I'm super pumped about it. Been trying to get every Wii U release from it's initial launch year and it's been getting hard to find the last few titles like this one.

Merry Christmas to all of rfgen!

Also sorry for the late post, my package showed up weeks ago but I wait until Christmas to open presents and then donít post about it until New Years because I was really sick.  zophar did a terrific job getting me some hockey games that I didnít have.  He also sent a very nice letter that I will cherish.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180101/f336d204d6fadeb5bdca85ea8114a9b6.jpg)

I'm not much of a hockey guy, but I LOVED NHL Hitz!

When they rebooted the Blitz style games with all of the sports, I think I had the most fun with Hitz.

I'm glad you got them and liked them. I was starting to get worried there lol. Hope you're feeling better! I'm not feeling too great myself today; I hate this weather.

My mailman swung around for a second drop off to deliver my RF Generation Secret Santa gift for 2017.

Another year, another Secret Santa knocks it out of the park!

First, some common 2600 carts, which I am always happy to receive.  Missile Command, Asteroids, and two different flavors of Breakout carts. 

Sneakily hidden with these commons was Radar Lock for the 2600, which I had specifically requested.  It was released in 1989, years after I had put away my 2600 for an NES, but nowadays I really like finding and playing these technically advanced 2600 games.  The VCS isn't all Pac-Man and Combat, after all.

Next up is a well loved copy of Kid Chameleon, which I will give a good home.  I really like this game, but forgot to pick up a copy because I owned it on a now nonfunctional Genesis plug and play system.  Now I have it to play at my leisure.

Last but obviously not least, we have a CIB copy of Silent Service.  Surely, this will be the cornerstone of my collection going forward.  Words cannot describe my elation.

Thanks again, Secret Santa, whoever you were.  As I pack up for MAGfest, this really brightened my day.

my recipient never did post what he got here, so I checked his collection and it looks like he did receive the games I sent. So I feel better.
