Welcome to the sixth 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!  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, 2021

When will it end:

December 31, 2021

Anything Else?:

Yes. Please make sure to leave feedback for your birthday 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.  If you need any help with embedding a picture in the thread let me know.

Also, on the subject of feedback, 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 me...and I will keep notes so that flakes don't make it into future birthday bomb passes.  I will generally remind everyone a few weeks ahead of time that their target is coming up.

With all that said, have fun everyone!

Well, well, well Looks like I am the first bomb to post, even though I know mine isn't the first birthday of the month But NWB worried with the recent shipping record of our USPS friends (and rightfully so) sent it early
Great selection and looking forward to smoking thru them

Steve, aka Murphy223, hit me with a very nice bomb today that included a sampler bottle of Old Forester, which i have not tried before, but I am a fan of Kentucky bourbon so it will wet the whistle nicely.  Thanks, Steve, I'll be looking forward to smoking these sticks with reckless abandon...   :smoker2:

So, my birthday was this last weekend and I cut loose, drank, smoked cigars.  I'm on a work assignment in Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Cuba so my fiancee' had to check mail for me and lo and behold, I was bombed by none other than Tucko411!  Thank you for some tasty, tasty sticks that I'm looking forward to enjoying on a warm Arizona spring evening.  



I'd rather have a cigar...
