WELCOME to Reindeer Roulette!

Need a gift idea for that special someone? Are you a Secret Santa? Do you just want a chance at winning fabulous prizes? When are prizes NOT fabulous, anyway?

You play by buying "spins" for your giftee, or for yourself. Each spin costs 1000 GPs. You can buy them anonymously, or not, by using the following form:

As for prizes, well... in the spirit of the Season of Giving, most prizes are SECRET! One lucky Winner will take home the Jackpot, which will be the total GPs raised by Spin purchases (minus the house percentage that WDC takes off the top for survey responses, PLUS any extra GPs generously donated). Consequently, the Jackpot won't be known until the game's over!

Other SUR-PRIZE Packages may be won, as well, provided by generous donors all over WDC. I'll be updating the total number of Packages available below. As the Game progresses, I'll periodically reveal one Prize Package, at random, so you can get a peek at what's available.

Reindeer Roulette will run until NOON (WDC time) on December 24, 2013! After that, all remaining Prizes will be revealed and I will hold the drawing, using Virtual Dice to simulate Spins, with each roll selecting a Spin which will be assigned to one of the packages below, in order. (For example, if there have been 100 Spins purchased, I'll roll the Dice to come up with a number between 1 and 100. The person holding that Spin will be assigned the first available Prize below.) Prize donors have until January 6 to fulfill their promised Prizes!

NOTE: Due to time constraints, I may not get around to rolling the dice until later in the afternoon or evening on December 24. But noon is the cutoff time. Any Spins I get in my email with a timestamp at 12:01 pm or later will be ignored, with GPs nonrefundable (they'll still go to the Jackpot).

PLEASE DONATE Prize Packages to Reindeer Roulette using the following form (remember, you can donate just about ANYTHING - there's no minimum or maximum limit on how awesome the prize can be):

Big thanks to ✍ LEGER ✍ for the Secret Santa activity and the above graphics!

DISCLAIMER: It should be obvious, but just in case - this is ROULETTE. Most Spins won't win anything at all, and sometimes you'll get the equivalent of socks or a rock. You pays your GPs and you takes your chances. No refunds. Got a problem? Talk to my friend, Guido.
