Welcome to the eighth 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.
The Burn Ward
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, 2023
When will it end:
December 31, 2023
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.
And as I mentioned in the sign-ups, I have used a random number generator to select a target of my own for this year. Someone will have 2 craters where their mailbox used to be, who will it be?
With all that said, have fun everyone!
