i dont think that person is in yet?

There's been a few over the years. The best was John about 5 years ago but I think it broke him and we've not seen him back. I honestly found it hard to watch that time.

For those who haven't played..

 

Uly sends you a player you need to buy a present for. Buying equates to picking something you want from a google image searching and sending the link/image to uly.

 

Once the game starts you need to try and guess which player bought for you. Or which player you think bought for another player.

 

Winner is last santa to be outed.

 

Once you have been found out you are still allowed to guess for other players.

 

 

In a nutshell, that's it.  Thanks very much.  :santa:

 

To play for the main prize, you have to do two things.

 

One is to keep an eye on your private messages so that you're ready when I send you a request to get a pressie for a named somebody.

 

The other is to get the pressie by finding a pic on the web and sending it to me by private message.

 

All you have to do after that is to avoid detection, and if you're lucky you can do that by staying quiet.  The last Secret Santa to be guessed is the winner.

 

But you can help your odds by guessing others - there'll be rules for that.

 

As well as that there will be a consolation prize, and you can improve your odds of winning that prize by outing lots of other players.

 

It's a game of honour, charity, decency and kindness, in the best JKB Christmas spirit.  :smiliz19:

Right, this game is definitely happening, so I'm going to set a deadline.  If you're interested in taking part, and your name isn't on the list I posted above, you have to sign up on this thread before Friday, December 14th at 9 pm Edinburgh time.

 

Also, please keep an eye on your private messages between 9 pm on Friday 14th and early morning on Sunday 16th for a message from me about what you have to do next.  :santa:

And for those who aren't familiar with JKB Secret Santa, the game is PHREE to enter for subscribed members.

I fully understand that everyone who plays Secret Santa is in it for the love of the game and to gather together in the JKB Shed and share, as one, the true spirit of the festive season.  :santa:

 

But all the same, the admins here have taken time out from their own efforts at dinging and donging merrily on high to offer prizes, so prizes there will be.  :santa2:

 

I'll post some details later.  :santa3:

 

Ho Ho, and again, Ho.  :smiliz19:

Prizes

 

The main prize in the game will be £125, and will go to the last Secret Santa to be detected.

 

There will also be a draw for a consolation prize of £40.  You can get extra spots in the draw by outing Secret Santas during the game.

 

Thanks to JKB admin for offering these prizes.  :santa:

Hi Ian,

 

I’ve already asked Uly, but thought I’d try you too.

 

Do you know when the present has to be in by?

 

Ta. 👍

New to this but is the present to be related in any way to the person you have to get it for or just a very random gift?

It's best to have a look at the person you are buying for's profile to get an idea.
