If you pick red, don't complain when I start moving your meeple...

I'm still waiting for the last package from my Secret Santa to arrive. Hopefully it will make it by Xmas!

Meanwhile my target has had their present for the last few weeks but nothing has been posted or mentioned on their profile, geeklist or forums and no reply to any of my messages even though they sign in every day...

Hopefully I'll get some confirmation after Xmas.

I caved and opened my presents over the weekend. Mystery Express and Lost Cities! Ended up hosting a murder mystery games day playing back to back games of Mystery Express and Mystery of the Abbey. Thanks Santa!

My target hasn't said a word either. I have confirmation that the games were posted from the NZ on-line store, but not a peep from my target, even though they have logged-on recently.

Maybe they are waiting until Christmas proper to open and post their games, or maybe they didn't like what I sent? I'm starting to get worried the presents may have gone missing in transit.

What do you reckon? Should I confirm with my target? Or am I just worrying unduly?

I would get into contact.

If it was sent, do you have a tracking number?

It's entirely possible that they haven't yet opened the gifts and are waiting until Christmas Day before posting about what they've received once they know what it is.

I'm glad you enjoyed the card! And I'm happy to hear that it reached you before Christmas

I'm hoping that your Secret Santa gift has arrived too? It was sent at the start of December from Unhalfbricking Games, so I'm hoping it has arrived by now!

See my earlier post. Arrived quickly but with a hole punched in the box by Australia Post. Pretty sure everything is intact. Will check on Xmas Day. Really looking forward to opening it. The suspense is killing me.

Must say, we are probably the worst Secret Santas ever...well, at least as far as the secret bit goes !!! LOL

Ah, I missed your earlier post. Glad it arrived (hopefully safely!), and cool that you are waiting until Christmas too

My wife agrees that I am useless at the "secret" bit, but I love sending Christmas cards

I haven't heard a thing from my target - the parcel should have arrived by now. My Santa contacted me four times, most recently to tell me that my gift hasn't been released kin Australia as yet. This is OK. I just wish I knew whether my target has received his/her gift!

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

My Santa has told me that he is having OH&S issues with the Elves and weights of packages and coal deliveries

Thus I should expect the coal next week

My target has received their game and opened it (there's a clue!)

Re: Announcing the 2011 AU/NZ Only Secret Santa
Yeah, it's been pretty unpleasant here; first big shake around 2pm yesterday, then lots more aftershocks since then. Luckily, they've got pretty good at fixing and maintaining the power and water, so everything was back on pretty quickly. And there are no reports of serious injuries, which is a blessing.

Still, not what we needed just before Christmas!
