I find myself returning to London just in time for the Christmas season, and I find that my list of acquaintances is dated. I'm not sure who is still about or not, but I do find myself with quite a number of cards. Given that there doesn't appear to be a thread regarding this, save for the official announcement (which is more obsessed with snow than the spirit of the season), I'm starting one here. If you'd like a Christmas card, post here. If you have Christmas cards and want to spread them about, post it here. If you wish to complain about how many cards now clog your mail slot, probably don't post about it here.

I'd love to give and receive Christmas cards. Merry Sacksmas to all.

Hello, all! I have a few cards to offer, and I am, of course, open to receiving any. Even so, this is the season of generosity, so don't feel obligated to send a card in return if you happen to get one from me. Happy holidays, dear friends!

Wasn't there a Christmas card sending arrangement last year with groups of 7 people sending them to each other, based on when they had TTH? I can't remember who organised it, but it worked a treat.

Yes, there was. Maybe, if no-one organised it this year, we should take matters in our own hands?

This was last year's set-up, with thanks to malthaussen:

12/1/2016 Last Sacksmas, the denizens of our city clubbed together to trade cards with each other in groups of seven. Each member of the group traded six of his seven weekly cards to the others in the group, reserving one to trade to acquaintances elsewhere. It was a very successful initiative, created by the stimulus of NiteBrite (with an assist from your humble obedient). What with one thing and another, I forgot to set this up this year, and lo, December is already upon us. It may have been for the best, though, since we couldn't know if FBG were going to change the Festival rules or not.

So, here are the rules: Submit in this thread your in-game name, a link to your character, and the time of your Time the Healer (which is when the cards will typically be delivered). Also list what cards you want: there are four varieties, and each adds Change Points to one of the stats. You will be sorted into groups of seven with the same TtH. Then, when you receive your cards, send out one each to the other members of the group. They, of course, will also be sending theirs out, which means you will get at least six cards per week, which will provide a substantial boost to your stats and Second Chances. You keep one free per week to send to the acquaintance of your choosing.

Also specify if you are willing to lead a group. This is not an onerous task, and consists mainly of acquainting all the members of the group with each other, and reminding them to send out their cards when they get them. Some of us have no need of the increases given by the cards because our stats are already maxed. This makes one an ideal leader, as it will be unnecessary to send him any cards, thus freeing up two in the weekly offering.

Link to NiteBrite's original thread last year, for those interested: http://community.failbettergames.com/topic21121-sacksmas-power-leveling-card-sending-list-.aspx

Note when sending cards that The Airs of London dictates what card you will send. By using actions to set this properly, the correct card can be sent to each recipient. The values are as follows:

  • 1-25 Dangerous: The Painted Mog card
  • 25-50 Watchful: The Fogscape with Tentacles card
  • 51-75 Persuasive: The Beguiling Predatory Vegetable card
  • 76-100 Shadowy: The Suspicious Sort card


Also note that sending a card will give you a few CP in the appropriate stat and some Making Waves.



Thus: Malthaussen (link in sig), TtH Tuesday, ~1500 Zulu. No cards needed, willing to lead.

I will be checking frequently to sort everyone and fix leaders. Expect it to take a couple of days to shake out. Running summary:

I have cards if any want them, shame the thing from last year didn't get set up, that was fantastically profitable.

I don't mind running the thread if people want to provide the necessary information to create the groups. Though it seems a lot quieter than last year...

I benefited greatly from the exchange last year, and since I'm now at stat cap, I'll gladly lead a group.
If not, I could use 1x Persuasive/week for Scandal healing.

I've made a Google Sheet for Christmas Card requests, like last year. It supports filtering so you can request the specific kind of card that you want.

I would love cards as well. Right now I'm a bit high on nightmares and wounds if anyone can help with that. But all cards gladly accepted.

I'm grinding up a few extra Night Whispers at the moment, but I can spare the actions to fire off 7 cards each week. Send me a PM in-game with your profile name and which type(s) of card you'd like to receive. I'll run through the list in order as card type permits.

I have cards to spare and would love to receive some in return! I've been playing this game for months, but have only recently ventured into the social aspects of it, so I'm looking for all manner of new contacts and this seems a great place to start!
