    I have 75chan and Salmo (who is dropping).

    Sparki/Aspen, if you do want to participate, please get me info today so that I can get things going. Otherwise we just have to roll without you so that I'm not holding things up any further.

    Hi all,

    I owe you all an apology. I committed to do this, and then both my own grades for my middle school classes were due this week, as well as two big projects for grad school. I didn't manage my time well and I'm sorry.

    FuneralofGod - if you sent pairings out or are in the middle of doing so, go ahead. If not and you'd like me to resume, let me know. I'll PM you.

    Thanks everybody for your patience, and again I apologize.

    The more the merrier! You guys both have established a presence in the cube forum. That guideline is really just to keep completely unknown people from creating an account and leeching off the exchange without holding up their end of the bargain.

    FAQ (Shamelessly stolen from Juju's threads in the spirit of, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it.")

    1. What's a Secret Santa?

    A Secret Santa is where where the people who sign up give gifts anonymously to other members of the group. Each person who signs up will be given a random person to send a gift to, and will receive a gift from a random person in return. It's a nice way for everyone to get a gift, without having to spend lots of money.

    2. Is this for me?

    If you're a member of this esteemed Cube Forum, and you have a desire to connect with the community by giving (and receiving!) gifts, then this could very well be for you. We have had some issues in the past with people not sending gifts etc. so while we do not wish to be exclusionary, we do expect you to meet some criteria. Ideally, you are an active poster within the cube forum, and you have a cube, or are building a cube yourself. I reserve the right to deny entry into the Secret Santa if you are a very new member (i.e. no posts, or no posts in the cube forum). Please don't be offended!


    3. Is this expensive? How do I know what to get?

    Slow down there! That's two questions! We have found that a gift of around $15 in value (or more) is reasonable, as that can really make someone's day with a cube staple or two. Be as generous as you like, however! Everybody's budget is a little bit different, so don't feel bad if $15 is all you can muster. The most important thing is just the fun of giving and receiving some cube goodies.
    As for the question of what to get, I will be asking people who sign up to send me a wishlist of cards that they want. Please make your wishlist as big as you can possibly make it, to give your Santa more options!

    4. Do I have to give cards?

    Nope! You can get as creative as you like. If you've signed up, at your request, I can potentially ask your recipient if they would like something that isn't on their wishlist. For example, I usually ask if they would be happy to receive altered cards. (However, please understand that most people are looking for cards. If your partner has specifically requested cards, please honor that.)

    5. Hot Damn, how do I sign up?

    Follow these steps:

    1. Reply in this thread with your intention to sign up.
    2. Private Message me (DSF) with your postal details and your wishlist. Please give as much information as you can in order to make it easy on your Santa. Feel free to link to wishlists or collections on other sites.
    3. I will then get back to you when signups close with your recipient's details. (Sign-ups will close December 1st so I can have partners made by Sunday, December 3rd and people can have some time to shop.)

    6. How soon should I mail my gift?

    As soon as you can! You don't want your gift to arrive late, so get on it! Remember that holiday shipping can take some time, and international shipping even a little bit more time.

    7. What do I do when I receive my gift?

    Post a picture of it up here in this thread, and don't forget to say thanks! It's great to see the gifts that get sent each year.

    8. Could I be asked to send to someone in another country?

    It's possible, and we want to have this activity open to everyone on the forum. In order for someone in Ireland or Korea or Dominaria to participate, we need to have people willing to send around the multiverse. If sending internationally is completely out of your budget and you feel strongly that you are not comfortable with that possibility, contact me via PM. However, if you're willing to ship one or two singles without tracking, an international stamp is only #1.15 in the US.

    How many people do you have playing? For a typical 8-person event it's pretty straightforward to do it yourself.

    Anybody going to GenCon? I'm not bringing my cube, but I left a lot of open time in my schedule, so I would love to join a game if anybody is bringing one.

    This is a much better implementation of the Egyptian theme than the invocations were. I dig them, although I won't be able to shell out the dough for one.

    Here we are about halfway through July, so if you haven't yet, you should hopefully be looking to send in the next week or so. (Mine is going out this week.)

    If you need any help or if you need your partner to know that you'll be out of town in a given week, let me know.

    Have fun!

    Hi all,

    I apologize for the delay, but pairings have been sent out. If you believe you're participating and didn't get a PM, let me know.

    5 days left until close! So far we have five people signed up - I'm totally happy to run a small exchange, but the more the merrier!

    I haven't been around much the past two weeks, but I am checking this thread and I will start to put peoples' PMs together into a sending list.

    A little over two weeks left until signups close.
