Woo-HOO! I am once again participating in the Secret Santa club on Boardgamegeek. The premise is very simple. Once a year, the denizens of BGG get together and virtually put their names in a hat and shake it up, then dole the names out to strangers, and the strangers buy them a present, usually anonymously. Now, me, I blew it last year and revealed my gift to my "target" I promise I wont' repeat that mistake. Secret Santa is far more entertaining when you give in secret.
I view the process as a sort of pay it forward... my target fellow is a younger guy, maybe not with a lot of funds, and he clearly likes a lot of stuff I do. I'm hoping I can make his Christmas happier.
