Update 11/28 - Matches have been sent Wink

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 AND sending your letter is Friday, Nov 24th

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 the text below 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 11th or my international package by December 4th 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. If you are unsure about what you are sending, give a little more, after all, itís Christmas!

Due to a VERY small number of scams in years past, The RFGen Secret Santa 2023 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.

Looks like we have an uneven number.
Easily solved:

1->2
2->3
3->4
4->5
5->6
6->7
7->1

...as long as the country stuff still lines up, you're golden.
