We've held a Secret Santa here at the Telltale forums every year since 2010. It's traditionally run by Ribs and divisionten. But since it didn't look like there'd be one this year, due to the mass migration of a lot of the old users from the forum, I decided to host it this year. I enjoy the tradition and don't want it to end, and these forums could use some holiday cheer.
(Forgive the quick copy/paste of the Telltale Secret Santa 3 post by Ribs last year. He said everything so well, there's no way I could top it.)
Games must be gifted through Steam, no exceptions
As with last time, there's no firm maximum, but please don't go overboard with your gifting. Most people only spend between ten and twenty dollars on their gift as a maximum. Also, there's a minimum of $2.50/£2 so we don't get anyone buying Fortix or something silly like that.
You MAY send gag gifts (like BRATZ or THE MAGIC CRAYON something silly, but it DOES NOT COUNT towards your gift. Also, don't send a more expensive gag gift than your real one. It'll probably get regifted anyway)
Also, those who do join must have a post count of 60 or more and joined the forum prior to October 2013. Just trying to keep potential scammers out. :)
To sign up, please send the email your Steam account is associated with and your Steam name by Private Message via my profile. Then, please post in this thread so I can keep a running list of those who are signing up - you must do both of these before the deadline, so we can get started without a problem as soon as possible! It's highly recommend you simultaneously post your Steam Wishlist in this thread, so the people who are gifting you at least have some idea what kind of game you'd like. The period for entry ends one second before the Steam Holiday Sale begins, and the period to gift ends one second before said sale ends. I'll then try and get everyone's target to them as soon as possible.
As per last year's seemingly very effective strategy, gifts will be sent via proxy to maintain anonymity. I will provide more details when it is time to assign targets.

The main rule, as always, is to have a good time! Any questions can either be PM'd to me or asked in the thread itself.
