Since I don't have a fancy way to do this, it will be done manually by me. And for this reason, I will not likely join in since I will know who my SS is. (Unless it's not a big deal?)

Sign ups are open now through 10/25 at 3PM EST. Partners will be assigned and Wish Lists sent out shortly after that.

Once you have sent the sub time, please send me a Wish List through PM.

3rd Generation: brand:::Nintendo Entertainment System brand:::Famicom brand:::Sega Master System brand:::Atari
4th Generation: brand:::Super Nintendo brand:::Super Famicom brand:::Sega Genesis brand:::Mega Drive (Japan) brand:::Sega CD brand:::Sega Mega CD brand:::NEC TurboGrafx-16 brand:::NEC PC Engine brand:::Neo Geo brand:::CD-i (Compact Disc Interactive)

Handheld: brand:::PlayStation Portable brand:::Game Boy brand:::Game Boy Color brand:::Game Boy Advance brand:::Nintendo DS brand:::Game Gear brand:::Nokia N-Gage brand:::Atari Lynx


How to play:

1. Only Gold Staror higher users can join. Not trying to exclude people, but since the values are slightly higher than regular SS, I want people who have been around for a bit. Sorry, new users, maybe next one?
2. 10 weeks subtime will be used as "buy in", sent to me to hold. It will be released back to you once the SS is over.
3. The minimum value of the gift is $25, not including shipping costs. NO GIFT CARDS. While I don't expect everyone to go the extra mile but at least reach or go slightly over the minimum. Put some thought into the gift and use gift cards as the absolute last resort. Gifts should be retro-related(see the system icon chart), unless specified by your partner otherwise. Also please be respectful and send an item that is in good or better condition(probably closer to very good/excellent considering the group).
4. Please look at your partner's want list, posts and Wish List(which will be sent to the host through PM and the host will relay it to the partner). If you really can't find anything, you can try gift cards(Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, e-currency), but use it only as a last resort. Do some investigative research, study their old trades, scour through their posts, or ask people who they have frequently traded with. If all else fails, ask me! I probably have traded with them before and can give some suggestions.
5. After you receive, please share your gift(s) with a nice pic or list of the contents.
6. Have fun and enjoy!


Since this is my first time hosting, please be patient as we may run into hiccups.

The rules aren't set in stone, so if you have a suggestion, please post here or PM me.

I want this to be the best SS yet!

Also seriously we should just ban gift cards. I don't think anyone is going to give one. How hard is it to pick a retro thing you giftee actually wants? We're on a website where a major feature is building a want list.

I agree with this. Though, it's just an "out" of sorts. I don't want anyone to stress too much over this if they really can't find anything.

I am sure everyone will do well in this.

Not calling anyone out in particular but there are some bad apples that would just ask for $50+ minimum games at something like this.

At a situation like that, then I would see the gift card being viable.

Let's not start to go down the negative path.

Especially if you have been following the RTT, it's very easy to see what someone likes. And we have a ton of older threads to scour through if you want to do some research.

Don't just give up without even trying, like I said, use gift cards only if all other options are out . It will be very easy to see who put some thought and love into the gift.

Doesn't have to be specific.

You can say "brand:::PlayStation RPGs or brand:::Sega Saturn shmups for example.

Your want list is another source of ideas for your partner so try not to just refer them there for your Wish List.

Wish List is like a more detailed want list.

First of all if someone does this they need to be called out. Probably afterwards as not to disrupt the event but that crap should not fly. If that happens with who I draw I won't get them a gift card though, I'll look to get them something similar that I don't see in their collection.* I have no problem with a couple hopeful higher valued items on someone's list but people should at least try to be realistic and include some stuff near the minimum.

*Update your collection or be at risk of getting a double. :p

Since its not limited to Retro Games, why not call it something like: The Unofficial Secret Santa 2017 Edition
Or something like that. I came in thinking it was for Retro games only until I read the rules, if I werent into Retro games I may of just skipped the thread.

Might join up (even though I'm a mainstay for the official SS threads and that's coming up soon), just wanted to weigh in on the gift possibilities. If it's called "Retro" Secret Santa I think it'd be neat if it was limited to retro games or items based on retro properties/properties that were popular back in the day. For example, if I do enter, I'd probably ask for some sort of book or comic based on Mario or some other old-school Nintendo franchise. So it'd likely be a modern item, but the retro vibe would still be alive and well. Either that, or retro Christmas items would also be badass.

But the current setup is cool too. yes

Limit to retro or anything goes?

i wasnt aware it was going to general and gonna be so big, i mean its cool and im still in and all, these are fun, but my initial impression was it was kinda an inside thing for the RTT since there is always John's big SS.

i dont mind getting someone a retro gift, but i dont collect alot of retro myself, unless you count guides for retro stuff i guess, i still need some of those, but my wanted list for almost anything but current gen is pretty much finished.

i actually spent the weekend playing a game instead of chasing them! it was weird

I think you've already decided (retro-only), but I just wanted to give my input since I normally run the general Secret Santas twice a year...

Basically, this doesn't make much sense to me UNLESS you do it as a Retro-only thing. I mean, we already do two site-wide general Secret Santas every year and they work well. I'm not sure why you'd do another one just a month or so before we have our next one, right? Unless I'm missing something, it just wouldn't make good sense.

So, I'm glad you've gone with the retro-themed event. That makes the most sense to me. yes

makes sense, we did this last year as a small thing in the RTT, definitely not something to step on the toes of your always excellent SS's :)

Higher minimum value here (not saying people in the regular don't go well over the minimum and I was thrilled with my July gifts) but it is much higher here. Also I just think it's fun to do more but I do agree that it's good that this is different in a way. I voted retro only and no gift cards. yes

Oops. Sorry @John, I actually thought the Semi annual SS was already over so I didn't think it was any harm in trying a RTT edition. Sorry if it felt like I was trying to invade the SS space. Not my intention at all. I was actually thinking it would just be a small exchange among mostly RTT regulars.

I should have posted in Vintage instead. I actually used your SS post as a guide to write up the OP.

The semi-annual one IS over for the July edition. But, of course, the actual Christmas one is in December -- which is now less than 6 weeks away, of course.

I'm fine with you doing one -- I just thought it would be weird to do a general one so close to the normal general one. So, I was simply saying that I think a Retro-specific one makes sense. yes

I would rather people not lend out subs. I think subscription is a great way to help GTZ, and it's pretty cheap considering what we get here.

I want to, but if you won't let someone lend me the sub then I'll bow out. That just takes money away from what I could spend on my SS. I always use the site link for amazon, so I'm still helping out.

Sending will be anytime during the month of November, just put a note in your Wish List that you want the gift a bit later.

Well, I wouldn't know if someone happened to send you some sub and you sent them to me. So I can't really "police" it, nor do I want to.

Why don't you split the list in half, you take half and someone else can take half. That way your name can be in the half that goes to the other person and you can participate @Lunar. Just make sure you each have the other's name in your halves, then do the name drawing so that each of you don't know your own Santa.

That's a pretty neat idea. I was actually kinda bummed and was just gonna see if someone else can run it next year so I would be able to join.

Sorry for the lack of updates guys.

OP should be updated.

So with @FrictionPin's suggestion, I think I will be able to participate(yay!)

FP will take half of the list and I will take the other half. So this way I won't know who my SS is.

For the participants, should be exactly the same experience.

Technically yes, but adding one more person gets it to 16, which is a nice even number. I don't think @Lunar has split the groups and assigned people yet.

Are you guys doing a 1-to-1 Santa (i.e. A gets B and B gets A)? Or more like our normal Santa here where A gets B gets C gets D gets A?

If it is like we do with the normal Santa, then it really doesn't matter if you have an even group or not.

On this note I'd really really like something from my list that I sent to Lunar and I even put sub $15 games on there in case someone wanted to go with quantity.

I added about 20 games to my list too, although some of them are way too expensive for Santa. Also sent in a little write up to Lunar about other ideas and interests just in case.

Time and list sent smiley:::smile

I also listed several cheaper games in my wishlist. I think most of them would be real close or under. But I just glanced at VGPC so some could be way off. The list will give an idea what I'd be interested in at least.

Everyone should know who their partner is by now.

Any questions, let me know!

For addresses, they will be updated once people send them to me.
