So... what did everyone get then?

I had:
- a very nice and superbly detailed Mega Drive key ring. I actually needed one so this is perfect! :mrgreen:
- a black T-shirt with the slogan "Shaving Is For Pussies" on it. I'm guessing it's because I have a beard - I mean, I'm sure that statement can't be read in any other way, nosiree bob... :wink:
- two PSP games - R-Type Tactics and Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins

Thank you... whoever you are! :lol:

Merry Christmas my friend, hope they are all OK. :)

Unfortunately I didn't receive my gift in time so I can't share the good news yet. MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL.

Just opened mine, what a great selection of stuff!
1) Multipack of double dip sweets, always a winner even if i know ill end up eating the stick then just pouring the fizzy stuff into my mouth with wreckless abandon
2) Super Mario Wallet, i like to change wallets quite often so that'll happily join the rotation
3) Retail version of Stuart Ashens wonderful book "Terrible Old Games You've Probably Never Heard Of" i actually backed this project so i already have the backers edition, but this only goes to show how well my santa chose his items as i really do like the book and this copy will be great for helping get someone else into our money sucking hobby
4) A card, because is it really christmas without one? (it better be cos i didn't send one to mine lol)
Thank you very much to my not really all that secret santa, i'm very happy with my gifts

Merry Christmas everyone! and thanks for taking part in this years secret santa, now unfortunately for me it's back to my homework for the new job
Visit www.youtube.com/replayretro . why? well erm, cos it would be awfully friendly of you to take a look i guess, you don't have to though, nobody will make you *sob sob*

I think a fellow btcc fan sent to me.

I got a giant candy cane and a copy of scar on ps2 (a racing game devoted to alfa romeo cars)
Attached to the game was a handwritten note with a btcc reference on there which means they either did a lot of btcc research or they are a fan too. Muchos gracias :)

Thank you secret Santa , some good research went into this.

1. 'Classically trained' t shirt with Sega console line up. Looking forward to wearing this.
2. Megadrive console keyring. Awesome. My lego keyring needed replacing.
3. Might and Magic for Megadrive. Now thats what im talking about , a game to check out my new Retron 5 with which is a welcome addition to the collection and also really handy as im at my sister in laws , where my megadrive isnt.

Great stuff , thank you.

Hope my victim enjoys theirs too.
