Haven't done this before - do we reveal screen names in the box?  Or is it totally anonymous?

Everything is up to you, you can choose to remain anonymous or announce yourself in the box or after the reveal.

 

You should look over last year's thread, it'll give you some good insight into how this works.

I want to be in, but I'm away from home until after the first which means that I can't ship until something like January 8th. Is that cool?

Happy Sunday everyone!

I got the list updated and sent out confirmation e-mails.  If you didn't get yours please let me know :)

As of today we have now tied the record for participation in the GRM game.  Last year was our record year of 50 people, and it looks like we might beat that this year.  That would be four years in a row of increased participation.

I've got a few e-mails asking for gift suggestions, and Clockwork posted the link to last years game, but if anyone has any questions please dont hesitate to aks via e-mail or on this thread.

Cheers!

After all, it is the season of giving, and as a purveyor of the worlds finest crap, well what kind of man would that make me if I kept it all to myself?

I've spent most of the past year tossing stuff into a small box specifically for this moment.

Just realized I forgot to take the "Executive" badge off of the chunk of RV nose cone before it got hauled off. I also realized I need to get a box.

In reply to Ovid_and_Flem :

It was actually the year M4ff3w told me about his participation in the "Hooniverse Secret Ninja Game" that got me motivated to do this (via facebook.  I think I had JUST joined GRM at the time).  I'm not a Hooniverse member, nor am I near as eloquent as they are in their description of the game (see here:  http://hooniverse.com/2016/12/06/going-for-broken-in-2016-hooniversal-secret-ninja-claus-rides-again/ ) But I thought it was weird a group as close & odd as GRM didn't have their own game going, so I started an excel spreadsheet and the GRMers kind of did what GRMers do from there laugh

 

It's definitely become my favorite tradition every year

Just three more days!

This weekend's tally puts us at 54 people, a new record!  Things are starting to simmer down a bit so I'm going to start mixing the names up, but it's not too late to enter if you're interested.  Just shoot me a PM and I'll get ya in the mix.

Cheers everyone!
