I've got WeeChucksHeid on ignore so just in case he guesses me...No I didn't buy his present. Had I been drawn to buy him he would have gotten nothing.

 

Merry Christmas everyone.

 

He is the only person I have on ignore :lol:

I read through the 2017 thread to get a better idea of how it works. All I can say is I hope you've been squatting up on the rules for this year :laugh:

Don’t view your recipients profile.

 

Don't be a lurker.

 

It’ll be fine thereafter.

 

Maybe. :biggrin2:

The problem is that no matter what strategy you adopt to avoid detection, you can be undone by a random guess that simply blows you out of the game.  :smiliz23:

 

 

JKB Secret Santa is no place for the faint-hearted, so it isn't.  :santa:

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

Thanks for the helpful advice, I'll do that

 

Don't listen to him. If you check their profile it might give you away. ;)

There would be just too many questions!

 

Maybe a wee gift of a map like this would be appropriate though:

Some people take this more seriously than others - I genuinely hadn't remembered last year's result :D

 

Anyway, I was out when the gift was delivered so had to go down to the post office to collect it. I've just slipped it into Ulysses's bulging sack.

There is no solid evidence that spreadsheet have ever helped anyone win this. 'Tis a mug's game.
