It's that time of year yet again, my fellow RF Gentlemen! The seventh edition of the infamous NSSS shall commence one week from today on Thursday, November 16th at 5 A.M. US Pacific Coast time, so stay alert!  I have 10 11 items up for grabs this year, and they're sure to go fast!


Just remember the rules:

-   Just one selection per person.

-   The first person to claim the item gets it. First come, first served.


How to make your claim:

-   Go to the 2017 NOT-So-Secret Santa blog when it posts on Thursday, November 16th at 5 A.M. U.S. Pacific Coast time...

-   Take note of the number of the item/lot you desire, and...

-   Post that number in the Not-So-Secret-Santa blog's comments section.


All RF Generation members from anywhere in the world are welcome to take advantage. Just be aware that, that unless otherwise noted, all games being given away are NTSC U/C coded for use in machines for the North American market.

As for shipping costs: I'm covering it. Just note that I'll be mailing this stuff out using the cheapest shipping methods possible, so it might be a while before your claim gets to you. You'll receive a PM informing you of your successful claim, and either requesting your mailing address, or confirming the one I have on file.



Let the countdown begin!

Thanks for doing this all these years!

Looks like I'll have to take my laptop into town with me on that day. Too fiddly using my phone... Tongue

Just added an 11th item... which may or may not be a lot of mystery games. Oh the suspense!

All righty, kids, the blog has been written and submitted...

I always forget this until the day it goes up.  This year I checked after I got up for work (which is about 5:50am EST) because I wanted to look over today's front page post again (OCD).  Anyway, thanks again, Zag.

Thanks, Zag!  Some scheduling snafu doesn't change how cool it is that you do this each year.

Just opened my NSSS gift from last year. So awesome!

Inside was this guy:

He fits right at home, with my other vault boy, and my amiibos:

HOLY FREAKING CRAP...

...you actually freed your amiibos from the packages?!

WHO ARE YOU, AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH THE REAL MICHAEL-OF-ENGINEERING-FAME?!

Now I know why you-- errr, he hasn't shown off new toy scores this year...

On a more serious note: I haven't yet shipped out the NSSS claims to Mumboking/TedLover and Ikariniku. My apologies for the delay, guys; I should have them shipped out to you by the end of the week. Thank you for your patience, and best holiday wishes!

No problem, Zag.  I'm just glad I didn't somehow miss it and it got stolen by some grinch.  My Official Secret Santa gift was also delayed, so I'll be lucky enough to celebrate Christmas twice.

At least it'll have a higher chance of arriving when we're at home. Tongue
