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!

Santa's elves dropped off "Round 1" today. I'm really excited about this expansion, because it will enhance one of our hot games. Can't wait to see what else Santa has up his sleeves for me.

Santa strikes again with more fun from Iello:



This one has been on my wishlist since it was just called Scripts & Scribes. I've heard so much good about this game, that I'm really pumped to get it to the table.

Thank You Santa!!

SANTA UPDATE:

Trust me to take forever to update this entry while my Santa is waiting... shake

So it started on Christmas Day. After seeing my original message (below), my Santa contacted me again to let me know that since the provided gifts might be a little too much for the young one and he couldn't open them yet, he would send me an extra gift especially for him and me. True to his word, I received this which Thomas-Olivier was delighted to unwrap:

Monster Chase!


We play a simplified version of the game where he finds the toy that scares the monster away, but he loves it already (he loves "attacking" the monsters and yelling "In the closet!". In fact, he surprised me tonight by picking up the game among all others in my library, even if he saw me putting there only once! Thanks so much Santa!

Of course, that wasn't all. On the 30th, we opened our Secret Santa gifts, which for me was a Batman Heroclix mini thrown in by Starlit Citadel (a nice little touch), and:

King of Tokyo


A nice rumble filler which I look forward to try. Tokyo always look for some monster-based destruction.

GUBS: A Game of Wit and Luck


Good timing: I tried the game on the iPad for the first time a week before. While it was ok electronically, I think it works a lot better in person.

and last but definitely not least:
Hamsterrolle


Quite surprised by this one, as I thought it was currently out of print. It was played with great fun at 2AM after more than 18 hours of straight gaming, and again early this year with my girlfriend who like it (yeah!).

So all in all I must thank you again, my quite generous Secret Santa. I quite appreciate all that you sent me, and they will definitely all it the gaming table in 2013.

-----------------------

So I received a package with not one, nor two or three, but FOUR gift-wrapped boxes inside! The note in the package read as follow:

From: BGG Secret Santa
To: Jean-Luc and Son

Happy Holidays! Hope you both enjoy these games as I have enjoyed playing them with my little ones.


I'm quite touched that Santa thought of my 2 years-old son as well as myself, and Thomas-Olivier was quite intrigued by the gifts. However, he, like myself, will have to wait a little while to see what's in the gifts: per a long-standing tradition, a few friends of mine and I gather for full day-and-night gaming extravaganza once per year between Christmas and New Year's Eve (this year: December 30th), and this is the moment we open the gifts we give each other as well as our BGG Secret Santa gifts.

I'll be sure to update this post as soon as the gifts are opened.

Now as to guessing to the gifts content, that'd be difficult: there are so many interesting children games in all shape and forms that guessing the correct one is about impossible. But if my Santa says he had fun playing them, then I'm sure we'll do to!

I arrived home from work and noticed a package on the kitchen counter. I had been expecting a package from Amazon.com(which was printed on this package) so I figured this was it. Much to my surprise, there were two wrapped packages inside. Ahh, these must be from my Secret Santa! I couldn't resist and just had to open them. (Sorry Santa, I had to peek )

The first was Nexus Ops. I had wanted the FFG edition for a while now so this made me extremely happy. Looking forward to playing this over the holidays with my nephews!

The second package was easy to guess just because of the odd shape.


Indeed, I was right! This could be a good game with my wife's family. Thank you so much for your generosity, Santa! Another job well done!

Oh WOW Santa!
You are AMAZING! Really amazing! I mean it! I never expected this much AWESOME in one exchange! So yesterday I picked up the large box from my nearby postal outlet and carried it home but didn't have time to open it until late late late as I had a Christmas party to attend for my job. Upon opening it (I was super tired, but oh so excited), I read the wonderfully poetic card which hinted at all the numbered gifts within (and there were sparklers!! I'm saving them for a great occasion to use them, but uber fun!). I adore Christmas cards so super yay! Particularly an extra yay for the poem and the surprise!
As for the gifts I got I loved the selection of expected and unexpected joys! Firstly I got Munchkin Naughty & Nice (the 2012 Holiday 15 card expansion), and Zombie Dice 2: Double Feature (an expansion for Zombie Dice!) both by Steve Jackson!
Then I got Star Fluxx! I wanted this one SO MUCH after the TableTop episode which featured it, because in part of all the geeky jokes and also some of the Fluxx aspects that differ from the other variations!
And a game not on my wish list: Citadels! I'm excited to try this one out! I may have played it years ago but I do not remember. And this version includes the Dark City expansion too!
Finally I'm the most happy with the last and largest gift! I got my FAVORITE version of Ticket to Ride! Nordic Countries! It's been ages since I've played and now I have it! I can now play it whenever I want!!

Thank you so much Santa! You have made my Christmas AMAZING!!

I know that I am a little late with this but I got this delivered last week. It took me a few hours to decide to open it and I finally did only to discover this game in addition to some Christmas candy and chocolate bars. There was ALSO a copy of the Descent: Journeys in the Dark Conversion Kit.

Thank you very much for the game Santa. I do hope to play it very soon.

PS: I do appreciate everything that was in the box but I would advice next time telling your target to open the package. Some others might not open it until Christmas only to discover melted chocolate on their games.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND HAPPY GAMING!!!!

Yay!!!! After not hearing from my Santa since the beginning, and being very anxious about what to do...I was so happy to finally receive my gifts for this year!!! Omen is a game I've been very much looking forward to, and having being unable to find a copy was very excited to receive and play this.



I also received Biblios but I'll admit to having been naughty and buying Biblios when it went on sale from the manufacturer. Either way, I know enough friends that would love to own a copy so it will make a great re-gifting

Thanks so much Santa!!!

Lest we Forget

My Santa was from somewhere in deepest, darkest, beariest (yes, that is a real word. Well, it is now) Russia, so my first communication was from Ded Moroz. He told me his Granddaughter, Snegurochka, was awaiting a pre-order before being able to deliver my games. This got my heart racing for two reasons - firstly, the only game on my wishlist that would need to be pre-ordered was the expansion to Core Worlds, and Secondly, he had said 'games'. Was there to be more than one gift?

I have just spent 6 weeks overseas with work, but was lucky enough to go with a few chaps who were easily coerced into playing boardgames, and impressively they went from never having heard of Dominon or Settlers to playing Core Worlds in no time at all. We must have played Core Worlds ten or so times, and I have fallen in love with it. It is the only game I currently rate a ten, and I just can't wait to get it to the table. The expansion, however, is something else. It adds layers of strategy to the game and opens up so many more delicious choices throughout the game, each agonisingly difficult. I hae played it once so far, but know that there is so much more to it that will come out after further plays. For the last two years I have felt that there should really be a game that I play enough to learn properly and get good at, but never quite found one. core worlds, with expansion, is it. Thanks!!!

Oh, and tucked up neatly next to it was Lords of Vegas. Since hearing about this game, whilst I lived in Vegas, I have wanted to pick it up. I haven't got past removing the shrink and sniffing the insides (am I weird for doing that?), but there are about a million dice, and I am itching to play.

Ded Moroz, you have excelled as my Santa, and I wish you every joy and happiness this Christmas. Just beware the bear!

My Santa and his helper Ood have been quite active with their discourse with me, and I've been happy to talk, they are charming (if not quirky in the case of Ood). Santa claims he is sending more packages in addition to what I've already received, which is far, far too generous.

Coincidentally, my birthday was yesterday (12/7), and a package arrived that same day. They were gift wrapped, and like a good boy I had them under the tree, but Santa intervened and told me to open them for my birthday! What a sport! Inside I found a bounty of Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game, an extra set of dice, and a coupon for Miniature Market! Again, far too generous, and I can only hope I can be as giving to my own target this year! (Sorry, no pics of the great wrapping paper, as my own little feline helpers have made off with it). In the event of more packages, I will update this same post, thanks again Santa!

Le HavreYay for Secret Santa and his helper Nobby the elf...

After an ordeal with Fed Ex (this is what happens when you give bbg the wrong address but right zip code and try to re-direct the package to the correct address...) the package showed up (After 2 weeks in Fed Ex limbo!!!!)

Lesson learned... make sure your address is up to date before letting your secret santa send you a package with an old address....

BUT I also got

Le Havre

A game I had been wanting for a few years and now can pull the trigger and PLAY!!!!

YAYAYAYAYA and I also got Nobby to listen to Bassoon music... thumbsup

and you should too!

So my Secret Santa got me three very cool games.

First one is Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries. I love the Ticket to Ride games and I just enjoy adding another one to my collection of options to play.

I also got Great Dames of Smallworld. That is such a fun game. We own Smallworld Underground. We've played with the Dames in the original so these will be a fun addition.

I also got Zombie Fluxx. That is such a fun little card game. After having remembered how fun that one is, I will be adding most of the Fluxx games to my wishlist.

Thank you so much!

Thank you to my SS for this game, sent to my friend in the US who brought it back for me. Apparently, SS sent another game as well:



which didn't arrive at my friend's parents' house before she left, so I will receive it some time hence.

Happily,
Yehuda
P.S. Check out and support my Kickstarter campaign for my Hanukkah game!

My secret Santa was very generous this year! First of all, the 4 boxes were wrapped and there was candy in the box as well. Since my secret santa is mute this year, and I have no willpower, I opened my gifts now!

The first small box contained a Christmas tree ornament! It looks to be handmade is a nice touch. It's hanging on the tree as I type this.

The second small box was Card City! I didn't even know this came out yet, so was a nice surprise.



The biggest surprise is not only getting the newer FFG civilization game, but also receiving the expansion, Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game – Fame and Fortune! I didn't have that on my wish list, so nice job silent Santa!



The best thing about getting game as a gift, especially from a generous stranger, is that there's a story that comes with the game, and it makes playing it that much more special. Happy holidays, secret santa, and also to everyone else on BGG!

Thanks Santa!!! I play with a picky group and am always looking for new games that can play with 6. Santa asked about my group and what kinds of games we like, and made an excellent choice! He was also super generous and sent a second game.
Survive: Escape from Atlantis! Very excited to play this one as well! I know both these games will be a hit. Thank you Santa, have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks Santa! My copy of 7 Wonders was getting a bit dusty.

Also a copy of Angry Birds: The Card Game, something to play with my God kids.

A Secret Santa Christmas Miracle...
as told in pictures, by Max, the Australian Monkey Dog



A few weeks ago, I got a teaser gift from Secret Santa...
Hey, That's My Fish! I LOVE FISH!


And then today, I got a nice Christmas letter from Secret Santa...


But wait!...What's in this big package? Let's open it!...


Wow! "Get Bit!"? More fish! But a shark is not a fish, is it? I'm glad that shark is trying to bite you, not me...


And look at this... I love Innovation and MORE Innovation...Innovation: Echoes of the Past!


This can't just be styrofoam peanuts! Where's more stuff?


Robo Rally? Supercomputers, crazed robots, racing, crashing...AWOOOOO! MY FAVORITE THING!


Secret Santa? Are you still in there?


We got a big haul for lots of big holiday fun!


Thanks so much, Secret Santa! I don't know who you are, but I will sniff you out next time...


Merry Christmas Board Game Geeks, from Max! (and his humans....)
