Welcome to the seventh annual (wow!) 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, 2022

When will it end:

December 31, 2022

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 but please mark your calendars as well.

With all that said, have fun everyone!

Kevin (klamm143) blew up my p.o. box today (last week, actually, but I haven't checked it for awhile) with a very generous 9 stick My Father/DPG sampler.  Being a huge fan of this brand, I will be looking forward to smoking these up with reckless abandon.  And of course, they will be "reviewed" in due course...   :biggrin:

Well done Kevin, these even have some time to rest before Todd's birthday!

Looking forward to it, as a Texan I love the name :)

We picked up and moved to Guntersville Alabama, feels great to escape the DC area finally!

So I got home from vacation this morning and when the accumulated mail was dropped off the postal worker seemed a bit distraught as she was carrying a ticking time bomb ??
All I can say is WOW, those Smurfs are AWESOME.
What a fantastic selection of smokes and a really cool patch from one Packer fan to another.
Thank you sooooooo much Jason, absolutely perfect way to start my birthday week.

DAMN!   My mailbox was destroyed today.   Thanks Jay (Otter) for the early birthday bomb -    A bunch of new sticks to me and super excited to give them a try.    Awesome start to the week.

I guess your friend's humidor isn't running quite so low anymore so it's ok for me to win the monthly contest now!  :lmao:
