Welcome to my 7th annual Secret Santa List. For those of you who are new to the list:

I run this list as a central location to let your Secret Santa know when your (hopefully much appreciated) gift has arrived.

Use this list to record what your Secret Santa sent you and remember to include any comments such as thanks that you want to give your Secret Santa. When you post on this list, you may want to make a note on your profile with a link to your entry so your Secret Santa can easily locate your confirmation of delivery and your reaction. That way your Secret Santa can look to see if you received your gift and you can post any comments you may have about the gift here and you can reply without the identity of your Secret Santa ever having to be released!

Please only make an entry when you actually receive the present! This assists those of us who read the list regularly as recipients are adding their gifts in a chronological order. No placeholder entries, please.

I find it very handy to put a link on your profile page so your Secret Santa knows where you have posted the feedback so s/he doesn't have to sort through 2000 entries to find yours quickly.


To see all previous years' editions of this list and to give the new Secret Santa participants an idea of how this works, look at these links:

"2011 List"

"2010 List"

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"

Further helpful hints:

IMPORTANT - When you get your gift(s), take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than place a comment at the bottom of the list. This helps the statisticians out there.

A good example of how to make an entry containing multiple gifts is located at: this entry.

Making an actual entry will also make it easier for your Secret Santa to locate your Item.


If you would like to taunt your "target" while maintaining your secret identity, you can do so using the Santa logon. Just log yourself off and close any BGG windows (if you don't you take the chance of being discovered if the new username doesn't take) and log on using this info:

Username: santa
Password: password



I hope you have a terrific holiday season and enjoy the list!

So this package from Lautapelit.fi arrived and I had not ordered anything... oh, right! Since Santa gave me no instructions whether to open it or wait until later, I decided to save it until Christmas. Then i decided to open it right away anyway! Here's what happened:



A package has arrived! I wonder what is inside it?



Meow! It certainly is an interesting package.



Two nicely wrapped parcels!



Holy! It's Chicago Express AND the expansion!!

Well, sorry to cut this post short but I've got some railroading to do. Thanks a lot Santa, I'm sure we'll have plenty of fun with this game!

Mystery box on doorstep coming home from work yesterday. Was expecting another delivery and didn't realize this was my Secret Santa package, so I opened it.

Inside was Dunwich Horror, and Forbidden Alchemy for Mansions of Madness!

Very excited to add these to my collection!

My wife texted me today and told me there was a rather large package at our door. I told her I wasn't expecting anything and she told me who the return address was from and I immediately knew my Santa had struck. when I got home I toreinto the packages. My Santa had sent me a taunt alluding to the fact that he wanted me to have them to play on Thanksgiving.

Thank you Santa, I've been wanting this fir a while. Along with that there was also a copy of Caylus. an oldie but goodie that I've never actually gotten to play, so I'm stoked.

Along with this amazing game, my Secret Santa got me the Arkham Horror Green/Black Dice set!

My Secret Santa had sent me a taunt informing me that these should be opened once both arrived so that they could be played over Thanksgiving with the family!

AWESOME, Awesome, awesome job Secret Santa!

I hope my victim target is as excited about their gift as I am was about mine!

So I came home today to a USPS priority package from my SS, who apparently has taken up residence in Sin City. I crossed my fingers that he and the Mrs. were enjoying themselves at the craps table.

There were instructions written on which side to open, so being one that always follows instructions, I tore into the box.

Inside I found the follwing note:



It read:

Dear Brian,
I heard that the Post Office was going broke, and
figured you wouldn't mind getting part of your gift
a little early. Please open it as soon as you can so,
anyone else getting you a gift doesn't have to
wonder what Santa got you. I also included some
accessories you might find useful with your gift or
other games.


With a little more to come, Secret Santa.

I quickly follwed the directions and ripped open the wrapped item.



King of Tokyo! My kids and began to dissect it immediatly and work towards getting it out as soon as we could. I love the addition of the 400(!) Ultra Sleeves (I have 3 boys so EVERYTHING gets sleeved) and the Ultra Pro Red Case and little plastic container to put the energy tokens in.

Thank you very much SS, and I am waiting on pins and needles of what the next item I await is.

Santa struck twice!

I posted earlier that my Secret Santa had sent me a copy of Tsuro, but then hinted later that there was more to come.

As I was stepping out of the house on the way to catch a flight, my wife said to me, "Looks like you can end the suspense before your trip".

I hefted the package, got excited, opened it up and both my wife and I said "WOW!"

Thanks for the wonderful gifts, Santa. Your generosity is inspiring.

Thanks for making this gamer and his family incredibly happy this season!

Wow. My Secret Santa is awesome.

When I received my secret assignment to pick up something at a local games store, I thought it'd be a simple job. Little did I know I had to carry not one, but three packages home.

First, I was told there was a Puerto Rico. I picked up the classic box, but then I was told there were a few anniversary limited edition sets available. I made the swap, and paid the difference.


And then in my other hand, I juggled the following two games:
Survive: Escape from Atlantis!


Citadels


This is totally unexpected, and I have been greatly blessed.

Thank you very much Santa! I hope you have a wonderfully blessed Christmas, too!

Oh Santa I love you kiss

By sending me this beautiful promo, I know now that my Santa:

-sent this from the UK (from the tag on the envelope);
-could be more than a "normal" BGGeek ("Postage paid" stamp on the envelope as opposed to a normal stamp, label printed), i.e. they could be a shop;
-they attended Spiel 2012, because that's where this promo was made available.

MANY, MANY thanks for this!!

Thanks Santa!

Yesterday a package from Amazon arrived, and I didn't connect the dots, so I opened because I thought I might have forgotten something I ordered.
But I didn't. It was from you, and was Jaipur. This game was not even ON my wishlist, but looks very interesting, so I look very much forward to trying it out.
Wifey told me to leave it, and we'll wrap it and unwrap it again for christmas... le sigh

And today, I received yet ANOTHER package from Amazon. Bigger than the last. I think I want to wait and open this either on christmas, or possible one of the weekends leading up to christmas We'll see.

I'm very thankful for the gifts, and I'm DIEING to know what's in the unopened box.


Update:
So this sunday, suddenly my entire left side of my head felt like it detonated in pure pain. And today, I got to see the dentist.
So this year's gift from my mouth to me is a root canal, three visits to the dentist, a measurable shitload of pain and a lovely bill to the sound of 570USD.

So off course I went home and opened my gift from my secret santa. I deserved it.

Lo and behold

Elder Sign
This is a wonderful gift, mostly because it feels like Cthulhu himself is using my molar as a summer residence, and when I come home from the dentist, all drugged up, I speak like a cultist, but also because it is kind of low on my list. But Santa knows best, and this game fills a huge hole in my collection, handling up to 8 players, while being easy enough to throw on the table pretty much whenever.
Wonderful gift Santa. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you

I think I might have persuaded myself to hold out on opening the two items. at least for a while, if not for the presence of the sleeves, which made very curious, and weak willed, I couldn't resist having a look and im not disappointed. My first secret santa and I'm definitely not disappointed with this comprehensive set.

Dear Santa,

My package containing 2 wrapped packages arrived today. I find it weird that they came from Shire games and not the North Pole. However that is cool with me because I got an advent calender with them.

Inside were two games but since it is not December 25th yet, my wife has suggested that they go under the tree. I argued that we do not even have our tree up yet to put them under so I should be able to open them both. She did not agree therefore I put up the tree last night.

I then debated that you would not mind if I opened just one a little early. Again, she did not agree. Therefore they continue to sit under our tree until the 25th. Does my wife work for you? Is she an sleeper elf?

I will continue to be a nice boy and not a naughty one. I will update this item with the actual gift once I open them.

Thank you for the presents Santa. Now to count the days down to Christmas on my advent calendar.

UPDATE

28 days later, I finally submitted to the voices in my head and the compulsive urges to open at least one of the presents. You were all so supportive after all and eager to know. I really did not want to let you all down There are two after all. One for now and one for Christmas morning. I see it as making both sides happy.

Thank Santa so much for the first of two gifts. This will see loads of play at home during the cold Canadian winter. Now to wait 10 more days for gift number two.

UPDATE

Christmas morning has finally come which means I get to open my final Secret Santa present. Please hold one minute, while I open it. Okay back. WOW!!!! Am I the luckiest man around? My second gift is a copy of Cyclades: Hades.

Thank you so much Santa. You rock!!!!!

This is the time in wich I have received more mails from Santa in my life.

The first was Nov 12, 2012
Santa has been looking at your wishlist and you have a great taste in games, but Santa was wondering what languages you like your games to be in, particularly if they have text. Just Spanish? Is English OK? Maybe you could let Santa know by adding to your profile?
Hope the boys are well.


Quickly changed my profile, and then I got the second bggmail, Nov 14, 2012

Santa has had a good look think about the perfect present and as you are Spanish, like football, and come from Madrid you must support Real, right, (I couldn't quite make out your microbadges) so this must be ideal
Trivial Pursuit - Edición Real Madrid. I like Arsenal myself, they play in the right colour.
I've set some of my Spanish elves to work to send a package to you. It should turn up in the next week and it would be nice if you could say on your profile or the geeklist when it comes. I had to order under a false name which I hope they have not put on any papers in the package. If they have try not to look. No peeking before Christmas, unless you really have to!
Santa's going on holiday in a few days, to get ready for the big rush in December but when he gets back I hope he finds out you are the proud owner of another game.
¡Feliz Navidad!


I thought, oh my god Santa has wrong, Real Madrid, but if my team, Atletico Madrid is the best team in the world, ... You must be kidding
But finally yesterday I received the third email.

Santa's elves in Spain tell him something is on its way to Alberto and should arrive tomorrow, Friday. I am glad you are up for new possibilities, but maybe something you know would be nice. Santa doesn't mind if you open it before Christmas!
Santa must go. Adios. He is going on holiday to a big metropolis, not in Spain, India or Greece but in America.
Happy gaming,


Finally today the package has come to my house.

Got the package yesterday evening and I would have posted then, but we decided to play the game as soon as it arrived. We ended up playing most of the night and stayed up rather late. We would be playing again tonight, but I have to go to a party. Stupid parties getting in the way of perfectly good game nights.

I love the theme and tone that this game has. Not only does it make me laugh, it forces a bit of seriousness in order to succeed.

Thanks Santa!

Ok, you guys twisted my arm. I went ahead and opened the box. Santa did give me permission to open the gift already and it would be nice to not have to wait 30 minutes or more to start playing on Monday. Having to read the rules before starting game night is always a bad way to start out the night, especially when time can be very limited when game night is on a week night.

Anyways, inside I found Cosmic Encounter. HAHA the jokes on me, My group and I already know how to play this game. So, thank you Santa. This is an awesome game, with a ton of variety right out of the box.



So, yay I caved, but it was only in the interest of saving time on game night I swear, and had nothing to do with this wonderful box staring me down all night.whistle
