GUYS DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME OF YEAR IT IS?!?!?!?!

Super Optional Game Knights End of the Year Secret Gifting Extravaganza 2015!!!!!

OMG GET HYPE

So last year I screwed up and waited until way too late to start this thread.  This year I'm going to err on the side of starting it too early.  

This will be our fourth(!!!) year of this tradition (though only the third in which it has bore this name).  Still for the sake of keeping it all official, let me run down the rules (again).

  1. By signing up you are agreeing to give a gift to a randomly determined Game Knights member who participates.  You will also receive a gift from a different randomly determined Game Knights member who participates.  The goal is for the identities of the gift givers to be kept secret until the gifts are given, thus SECRET GIFTING.
  2. Once you have signed up, you should begin browsing the Steam Store for games you'd like and adding them to your Wishlist.  Continue to do this throughout the Holiday Season (at least until you have received your gift).  In the interest of fairness you should make sure your wishlist has some nice $5-15 games as well as $30-60 ones so whomever has you don't have to break their bank if they don't want to.
  3. Who you will be getting a gift for and receiving a gift from will be determined at random. You should not reveal who you are gifting for until they magically receive the gift from you via Steam (or whatever service).  Once you receive the gift the cat is out of the bag and thank yous may be had.
  4. If you have things you'd be interested in that are not from Steam, like games on Nintendo Shop, PSN, XBL, Origin, Humble Store, GOG, etc, be sure to inform us via this topic.

In order participate you must reply to this post before Thanksgiving Day (11-26-2015) that you wish to participate.  I also must have an updated and valid e-mail address for you in case that has changed since I invited you to joining the site. Finally you also must be a member of Game Knights before Thanksgiving Day to participate. (check the Members page).

Surely you want to participate don't you?  I mean who wouldn't want to participate in the secret gifting tradition that my wife exclaims "This acronym is worse than the ones the UN makes up, I hope you know that."

So get posting!  AND GET HYPE!

Yeah, I guess I'll show my love for you assholes people by purchasing gifts for a randomly determined person. Just don't give me Mark. I don't like that guy.

Well we have 16 Game Knights, and this is our fifth year (I misspoke earlier, the multi-year secret database I've kept to make sure you don't get the same person again indicates this will be the fifth entry), and you've participated in all of them.  So that means if everyone signs up again, you would have a 1 in 12 chance of getting Mark.

Of course, two of those people are Lurial and Steinst2, who are not likely to participate (haven't yet) so you probably have a 1 in 10 chance of getting Mark.  Who you have on record indicated you don't like.

So I guess hope your d10 doesn't roll a 1?

Misharum?  Am I to assume those odd looking anime maids were indicating your participation, or were they just there to weird me out?

It is! But it was also me trying to be clever as her name is Suiseiseki, which I thought sounded like SOGKEYSGE enough that the joke worked.
