Haven't posted in a while but parcel has been sent and mine has arrived this end too.
My missus wanted to know why I hadn't opened it.

Parcel has turned up today, and I realised I somehow passed along a completely wrong postcode. Sorry, SS!

Parcel turned up today, containing three exciting-looking pressies :D

A message to my SS. I won't be able to open the gift you sent until 29th/30th Dec. I'm away and have left it under the tree. D'oh!! :lol:

Hope noone minds me opening mine tomorrow as I have 3 Xmas day visits to do.

I'll do a video though although that sounds like a threat

My secret Santa sender knows me very well :D
4x4 evo 2 (ps2)
Gtr 400 (ps2)
Ferrari challenge deluxe (wii)
And also comedy dvds- black books, thin blue line and peep show

They even got my sense of humour spot on. Thank you

^ That would be me...

Have to say that hints thread was very handy. I remember reading that you knew the area the sender was in quite well - so how emotionally scarred did your experiences of Wrexham leave you? :lol:

I mentioned that I was looking at collecting Famiclones and plug-and-plays and lawks a-lordie, that's exactly what I got:

Ultimate TV Game - Famiclone that looks like a PSone (albeit with a crude relief of a skateboarder who looks a bit like Sweetchuck from Police Academy), looks like it plays actual Famicom carts too so there's another thing I'm gonna have to start trawling eBay for!

N-Joypad - already have one of these but the box is less sun-damaged than mine and the controllers aren't completely fooked.

25-in-1 Intellivision - my 10-in-1 doesn't even load half the games on it, I'd actually been looking for one of these.

Mega TV Drive Challenge - I'm certainly intrigued at how easily tennis games and Arkanoid clones play with a steering wheel (actually, the latter might not be too bad).

My SS doesn't actually need to put himself forward, having made the elementary mistake of leaving the myHermes label with the sender's details on it - the last thing I'd have expected from the organiser of the whole thing! :lol:

Mind you, I'd have had a very good idea who it was anyway considering I've already seen all of these on his YouTube channel.
