Secret Agent Santa

For your eyes only!
Top Secret!

Your mission, Agent Elf, should you choose to accept it, involves the delivery of gifts to people unknown. You may select any dyeable container, give it a bright hue, and fill it with trinkets to amaze and delight. Remember to leave a message explaining all the holiday wonder you wish to share and then encode it using the SANTA cipher (see below). A link to this page or a copy of the cipher should be provided. Wearing a clever disguise, deliver the gifts to strangers either in person or through a mailbox.

As it is the thought that counts, gifts should be inexpensive or readily available. Suggestions include sextants, spyglasses, candy, drink, hangover remedy, fish pies, or colorful flowers.

This mission from Santa can be done in your own time and will not be scored by the EMs. However, if you wish see how well you did, use the following guide:

  • Presented Secret Santa gifts to more than 10 people: Order of the Shadow Rudolf
  • Presented Secret Santa gifts to 8 to 10 people: Holly’s Comet
  • Presented Secret Santa gifts to 5 to 7 people: Dasher through the Snow
  • Presented Secret Santa gifts to 2 to 4 people: The Blitz
  • Presented Secret Santa gifts to 1 person: And the rest!*
  • Presented Secret Santa gifts to no one: I’m with Cupid

As always, should any member of your team be caught or killed, the North Pole will disavow all knowledge of your actions, because seriously, who dies giving Christmas presents? This holiday card will self-destruct in ten seconds. Good luck, Agent Elf!
