Welcome to the fourth annual Birthday Bomb Exchange! This will be a year long exchange to give all you generous geeks another excuse to nail another geek with a killer bomb for their birthday.

Who can participate:

If your name is here you're invited to the year long birthday party, if not, enjoy the show and there's always next year.

What needs to be in the bomb:

Cigars of course! The bomb should have a minimum total value of $25 as customarily determined around these parts (CI box prices, etc), should contain at least 2 cigars, and each cigar should have at least a 3.5 star rating (so no pineapple white owls...unless it's a gag that is thrown in over and above the $25 bomb). There's no minimum or maximum value on each cigar, just make sure they're not dog rockets. There are no upper limits on the bomb value or size, spank that birthday boy as hard as you want! You may want to designate a particular birthday cigar similar to the new year smoke in the secret santa exchange, but it's not required. If you want to include something other than cigars in your bomb you're welcome to do so, just please meet the $25 value in cigars first and foremost.

When will it start:

January 1, 2019

When will it end:

December 31, 2019

Anything Else?:

Yes. Please make sure to leave feedback for your bday bomber and please make sure to post a picture of your opened gift on this thread so all of us sitting at the birthday party table can be wondering why it can't be OUR birthday.

Also, on the subject of feedback I should mention that last year we had our first party pooper in all the time I've run this. Based on that experience, I think it's only fair that I warn you. If you fail to bomb your target (I'm not talking about being a little late, I'm talking not sending it at all/ignoring communication type of behavior), you will receive negative feedback from the party host. I will generally remind everyone a few weeks ahead of time that their target is coming up.

Alright, enough of the unpleasantries, geeks, let's keep making birthdays great again!

Hey gang,

I received my birthday bomb in the mail over the weekend from bstessl - I just didn't have a chance to take a pic and post up but I did want to acknowledge it and thank him for giving me some great cigars. The star of the bomb is a 10+ year old Punch Double Corona which will be calling my name until the first nice spring day we have.

I'm on the road traveling for work the next couple days but I will get a picture posted up as soon as I get back.

All,

There is one geek that has been completely unresponsive since asking to join this pass, not even reading the PM I sent back in December on who he is supposed to hit. I've warned him with multiple emails to show some responsiveness or get kicked out and he hasn't replied to any of those either.

In general I don't like participating in this pass to avoid any perceptions of rigging it to favor me as I do custom pick who hits who each year. That said, I've decided in this instance to step into his spot since his victim's birthday is eminent and it keeps everything else the same save one other bomber's target and date. It shouldn't raise any questions about equity as I'm hitting who he was going to hit and the person that was going to hit him will hit me instead.

Thanks.

Damn!  Gary let me know if you want me to take this one.  I don't mind doing two
