    Thanks to all 30 of our lovely participants who were all lovely to deal with, no problems at all! It brings a tear to my eye how reliable you guys are.

    I hope you are happy with your gifts, I have no idea what they are since I can't click the activation links so please post what you got here!

    Also - if you want to know who your secret santa is. Call them out! They have absolutely no obligation to answer but if you want to make yourself known...I won't ban you now :) (oh and don't bother asking me!)

    I hope everyone enjoyed taking part. Thanks and much love.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Gifts have all been sent as of....now!

    Extra prizes will be done after gifts have been given out (random draw will take place)

    Woo, Bard's Tale and Mini Ninjas.

    Thank you Secret Santa.

    So when you click to receive them, you actually see the note you wrote. I wrote an embarrassing thing to myself. Also, a side effect is that you could see who gave you the game.

    That's a bit silly, I assume all of them will be like that then? Lets wait and see. Doesn't matter now I guess, nothing we can do. John Cook is a silly sausage, geez!

    Thanks Bob_Marley!

    Edit: Jesus, £25! I feel bad now that I only bought a £10 game for my secret santa....
    Edit 2: Oh, and I got Mount and Blade as well!

    Eeeeeeeeey, Deus Ex GotY Edition :D I've never owned it or completed it so that's a sweet gift and good choice for me.

    THANKS, SLIVER! (You do indeed see who gifted it. Not a big deal...)

    Ho ho ho!

    I'd like to thank my secret santa!

    He got me World of Goo - a game I'd always considered getting but was never totally convinced enough to make the purchase.

    This is just the sort of gift I wanted.

    Merry Xmas MorganFreeman911!

    Everything has now been sent out. The names on the gifts is a bit of a bummer but its not the end of the world I guess!

    Personally I don't mind that. I'd like to know AFTER the event so that I can thank my SS.

    I suppose it's not a real secret santa, but I like it.

    Great job organising it Glenn.

    Like I said in the other thread, every time I've done secret santa previously you find out who the gift giver is when you received it anyway. It's fine by me :)

    (Installing steam on home comp. currently, can't wait to see what it is :D)

    Yeah I didn't think the receiver would see this either.

    God knows what I put. Hopefully my receiver (lol) will tell me?

    mine is something like

    "MERRY XMAS YOU JEW"

    i know the word jew is in there somewhere...but hey, if you get offended you must be jewish and therefore you do not qualify for secret santa, so up yours.

    Thank you Pitz you handsome devil you!
    Trackmania United. I had the free version and enjoyed it thoroughly with my gamepad, so this is epic. Unfortunately I just arrived home and forgot to bring my gamepad home with me :(.

    Oh well, much love Pitz <3.

    Also, I love the message.

    Got Dark Messiah and Torchlight. Thanks Feath! <3. My friends have been hounding me to get Torchlight ever since it came out, saying how great it was. Should be great fun.

    I think in my message I wrote something like "Boobs." Guess I could have said something worse.

    And mega thanks to glenn too for setting all this up. Glad it went smoothly.

    Oh bugger. Looks like steam didn't want the world knowing I already owned the max payne games on steam.

    Ho-hum, obviously my secret santa had good taste.

    Thanks staticprimer! Mass Effect, a game that's been on my 'to buy/play' list for about a year. Hadn't thought of it when mentioning my suggestions. Perfect aim!

    Muchos love to Glenn for organizing this. He could get a box full of hagelslag from me, if he'd just finish Psychonauts before Christmas. Yet he's still not done it, claiming that doing hl2.net site work is more important. How noble. <3

    Also, ejoy DigiQ8! <3


    I'm up for this next year.
