Anyone else here get involved in Reddit Gifts Secret Santa? I finally got someone easy to ship to this year (last few years has been someone in Iran and someone in Saudi Arabia, not the easiest countries to ship to, especially Iran. That was a nightmare,)

This year I got a bloke in Canada who likes Science, Space, the standard TV shows (True Detective, Mr Robot, Suits etc..) and his only other interests were Tabletop games (which i know nothing about) and Fallout 4 (which I'm yet to play). Any suggestions? I got a few ideas, but I feel like they're a bit underwhelming, it's always nice getting another perspective.

I did the gifts for teachers drive earlier this year. Same framework, except it's a one way gift. I got matched with someone in the 'Gong who volunteers teaching remedial classes for disadvantaged kids, who are behind in basic mathematics. I put together a pack of educational card games, geometry stuff, cool dice with maths operators and currency on them, yada yada. The guy turned out to be a very poor communicator - no pics in the gallery, no feedback from the class. It's all good as long as the kids got their swag, but still, it was a bit of a bummer.

Cool story bro.

Check out the Portal tabletop game.

Thanks, I was hoping I might be able to get some advice re: Tabletop games, the guy says he's a bit of a noob, so that means he probably doesn't have many.


I had a similar thing happen to me with the bloke from Iran, I spent AGES trying to find something that was both legal to send to Iran and available at a website that shipped to Iran (there isn't many)

Eventually I found some Halo and XBOX shiz for him, posted it, got zero thanks or feedback, which sucks because the thank you and the gifting is a huge part of the appeal. I feel like the guy was expecting a huge gift as all his likes were things about needing a new SLR or a Macbook Pro and that his TV was very small. Yeah right buddy.

lulz, tbh it was a friend from FNQ that pushed me into id'ing it thinking it might be something similar and something similarly exciting. I'll be looking for this one when i'm back underwater.

Wonder if there's already a PMF4SH?

And people would learn to present information, instead of reading bullet points.

To be fair yesterday was done properly. Team motivation love-in at the Novotel, good banter and food, ended in beer.
