Welcome to Heraldry Harry!
To All and Singular to whom these presents shall come, we of The Heraldry Community send greetings!
Heraldry Harry is a game played during the odd-numbered months based on the concept of a Secret Santa. Participants fill out an information sheet with some personal details, what they care about in life, what they prefer aesthetically in heraldry etc... Whatever they feel comfortable with sharing that might aid in the design of a coat of arms. Then, Harry and the Hendersons shuffle all those sheets and re-assign them to the participants in secret. There's a bit of time for everyone to come up with a design for the person they were assigned. Then these designs are posted in the subreddit r/HeraldryHarry and people try to guess who made what for whom and vote for their favourite.
