What is a #warmonger?
The #warmongers are a rapidly growing community of wargamers on Twitter. If you’re on Twitter and play tabletop wargames then chances are you’re a warmonger and don’t even know it. Search for #warmongers and you’ll quickly find a happy bunch that’ll welcome you into the fold with the minimum of teasing and @docbungle being inappropriate. Make yourself known and you’ll quickly find yourself with lots of new friends.
What is the #warmongers Secret Santa?
The idea is a simple one. The #warmongers are a very close and friendly group of people who spend a great deal of time supporting one another’s hobby so it seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to do to exchange presents over the Christmas period. Now as there’s something like 500 #warmongers at last count that would make for one expensive Christmas so instead we’re doing a Secret Santa.
How Will it Work?
Anyone wishing to take part can complete the form below by Sunday 30th November 2014. You will then each be randomly assigned someone to buy a present for and given their name and postal address. The only consideration will be geography as it wouldn’t be fair for us to expect members of the community to send parcels to the other side of the world. It may end up happening anyway but I’ll do my best to make sure it doesn’t.
Once you’ve been given a person you can buy them a present. But remember, it’s a secret! If you know the person and what hobby project they’re working on then by all means head down that route but most of all it’s meant to be a bit of fun. The spend limit will be 10GBP/16USD/13.00Euro excluding postage. You don’t have to spend that much but try not to go over. Obviously I can’t impose restrictions but I suggest you avoid the following types of gift:
Adult or sexual in nature
Anything that could or will go boom.
Parcels must be posted no later than the 12th December 2014 to allow for postal services to be shit and please include in the parcel a note saying who you are, your Twitter name (if applicable) and a festive message.
When you receive your parcel please leave a comment on this page telling us what you’ve received and tweet some pics using the hashtag #warmongersSecretSanta.
