The games were put in a list and then a random list of participants was created. I then matched the list up with the participants. If you had the game you were assigned, you went to the bottom of the list for being so greedy and everyone else moved on up. A big congratulations to CherryRed for being the only person who did not own HL2 Episode One! DEFAULT! DEFAULT! That one I had to work out beforehand because that was a game that has been lying around since 2014's SSS.

And do not forget, if you do not think you will play your bonus game, give/trade it with someone who will!

Thanks for the bonus giftage :D. I certainly wouldnt have considered JetCar Stunts before, but I'll give it a go. Also for L4D2, but less likely to play that, so if there's anyone else here apart form me who doesnt have it, and wants it, check in with me :).

Great job on running it this year PJ, and to everyone who took part.

thank you for the extra gift, of postal 2.
however i never really was into the first one, and have a massive collection of games to go through, so i rejected the gift offer.
perhaps someone else might like it, rather than wasting it on me.
thank you though.

STOP RETURNING GIFTS!!!!!

Come on people, you honestly think that I have nothing to do on my holidays than constantly send out gifts to people in hope that someone will take it only to have to repeat the process once again? I appreciate you want it to go to a good home, but please find that good home yourself or trade on here as I can see this going on an endless spiral until next year's event.

That may sound snarky but it is not intended that way I just cannot keep resending gifts out.


Thanks everyone…

Love seeing my giftee playing the games I got them, last year on the GON SS I got a rando non forum goer, got them 3 games and I went back and found the link to their profile just before GON shutdown and they had only played about 1 hour combined between all 3 game, made me feel sad.

Oh neat! I forgot you could see how much people have played certain games! I'm currently saving my secret Santa games for the couple of days on my own I have this week.

Hopefully that wasn't me NotThatDoug :P

I couldn't get into my SS games last year. This year however, I've racked up 12 hours already :)

Hah no they've haven't moved over.

I would probably have a billion hours in my SS games already but I've only got my surface while I'm on holidays so I've only been able to play a bit undertale when I get the chance to sit down and play instead of going out and doing other stuff like Star Wars and Lion King... I'm the king of first world problems right now.

I've already played 7 hours of Undertale and 7 hours of The Witcher.

So The Witcher 3 is pretty damn good.

It's so wonderful to see the giftees comments, it's like you sit back, huge grin on face, and just think "and you'll neeevverrr know it was me".

As for the extra gift giving, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I got Fallout 4! Ahhh, something I didn't think I'd buy (I'm a scrooge with money, as I'm so annoyed at the USD being so low... turned me off online shopping) until it was on sale like a year later! lol.

Now sitting and waiting for Vermintide to download... this 27GB is going to take for ever..
Don't think I will be playing it tonight... probably tomorrow though :D

And Elite is some good fun... have no idea what I am doing, but I am having fun...
Died once... then managed to kill a guy and get his bounty, and deliver a message! Go me...

Thanks PJ for playing Santa again.

Have a few days between getting home this week and going back to work to check out my pressies (and to check I wasn't also guilty of backlogging of any of last year's gifts).
