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!

Our Secret Santa surprised us this year and snuck a package by our front door. It was pretty dark out, but you couldn't miss it since it was such a large box! Lacking any sort of will power at all, we immediately opened it up and we were excited to find a copy of London as well as Navegador!

Thank you so much Secret Santa, this is a wonderful set of gifts! My wife and I have been craving some more deeper games and these fit the bill! This is our first Wallace game as well as our first Gerdts game. Poverty and rondels, here we come. Now, if only Santa could deliver us some time to play them. laugh

The games - thanks Secret Santa!

The baby has already started unwrapping London...

Box arrived today. My wife said that she was expecting some stuff for me for Christmas and to not open it. So, I took in this box that was supposed to be filled with sparkling wines and carefully put it in the door.

Of course, when my wife actually looked at the box carefully, it turned out to be my gift from Santa. So, since it wasn't from my wife. I decided to go ahead and open it.

Two games and a card were inside!

Card:

Merry Christmas, Pat!

Wishing you, your wife, and your son a wondrous holiday.

Santa!

Hooray! Thanks Santa. Let's look inside....


Alien Frontiers - This was recently recommended to me yet again, and now I'm really glad to get it!

Factory Fun - Oooh! Fun stuff! I've been thinking about this one for a long time, and now I get to build conveyor belts!!!!!!!

Thanks, Santa!!!!!

This is the first year that my Secret Santa was so creative. Six haikus in six geekmails. I received a box from CoolStuffInc about a week ago or so but I have been so busy that I didn't open it up. I finally had time yesterday.

First game was King of Toyko, which was tops on my wishlist!

Next game down in the box was Hive which has been on my wishlist for a few years. It is the bakelite edition that I wanted. I would've been thrilled with just these two games, but it was a big shipping box...

Next came 7 Wonders which was also ranked a one on my wishlist. Wow! I love ancient history and was always hoping that a SS would give it to me. I almost broke down and purchased it for myself.

No way there could be another game in this box. Sure the box was large enough to contain another one, but I already pulled pulled out three games that already totaled more than the recommended SS price point.

Hiding at the very bottom, low and behold the 30th Anniversary Edition of Survive: Escape from Atlantis! was there! Also very high on my wishlist.

Thank you very, very much Santa!

First I was very excitied about what I was going to get from my Santa, My Santa Tauted me the way it should be, but when I got my package after some days travelling,I got really touched with the letter my Santa wrote, He wrote about the feeling of getting a target very far from him and I loved the way he made a self-reflection about his life and family this year,My son loved the way my Santas daughter painted a snowman, but the best part is here this is not an ordinary Eclipse,It came with the expansion of Supernova and My Santa made a exclusive scenario, yes people I do have a unique customized Eclipse, something I will never forgot.
Santa you really touched my heart not with the game itself but with your care and commitment.
I hope next year is going to be better than this one and so one...
You are the best.

My secret santa went above and beyond. They got me Netrunner which I've been contemplating for some time now. Then on top of that they added the Battlestar Galactica Exodus Expansion. A peppermint brick was added to join in the holiday spirit.

The the big surprise. Feeling around in the packing peanuts I found a baggie with something I did not expect. The Wardancer Warhammer Quest character expansion was in there.

To say I'm a Warhammer Quest fanatic is a bit of an understatement. I can't get enough of the game and this will just add to my collection.

I can't thank you enough for the generosity you have shown.

This morning started off iffy and just went further downhill as the day progressed. Between all the tests I had to undergo today I vaguely remember thinking that this would be the perfect day for a package from my SS to show up. Well Santa must have known I would need the package today because when I came home there was a package sitting on the front porch. I ran walked to the door and brought the package inside.

Since I was under no instructions to wait till Christmas I opened the box and was pleased to find Dominion inside. Played this one many times but up until now never had a copy of my own.

Then hidden under the packing slip was another great present Dixit Quest which will make an excellent addition to the base game. Turns out my wife was looking at buying me this as well so I nicely pointed out that the other Dixit expansions are around the same price if she was going to continue along that line.

Thank you very much Santa your timely gift has lifted my spirits on this bad day.

Many thanks to my secret Santa who come through wonderfully. I've been a BGG member since '04, but this is my first time taking part in the Secret Santa exchange. Why didn't I do this sooner???

I got some curious messages from Santa about a month ago and, in late Nov, an envelope appeared, mailed from Japan. In it..



Nice!! A wonderful little game that my fiance and I have been enjoying since receiving it.

A few weeks later, I got notice that a bigger package arrived, but I was heading off to Montreal for the weekend so had to wait til yesterday to open it. It was torture!!

Inside, was four wrapped presents and a very nice note from Santa. I probably should have waited til Xmas, but needed to see what I got so that the Mrs. wouldn't duplicate.. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I tore through the packages and found...







and



WOW!! What an awesome haul and totally made my week. Been dying to play KoT as it's been sold out for a while from my local store and RftG was one of those games I had always meant to pick up at some point. Love Letter was the cherry on this Xmas Sunday.

I've added a few of my own photos to this stream, so have a look!

https://www.icloud.com/photostream/#A45oqs3qnGhwV

Thanks Santa for an awesome Xmas. I got a message that my target has gotten his gift as well, so I'm hoping that's he's enjoying his just as much. Can't wait for next year!!

Squeeeeeeeee! Thank you so much Santa! I came home from a super stessful day at work and there was a box waiting for me from Cool Stuff Inc...I had to think if I had ordered anything (been shopping for some extra goodies for my Secret Santa target). I started to open it and I saw the cover of the box!! Since I already peeked, I opened up the box officially! Something else was inside...Nemo's War




 

(er...sideways, sorry)


Wow!! Santa, you are most awesome!! I have a clue, perhaps not correct, that you came by way of Estonia. Maybe?

In any case, thank you very much!
tänan väga!!!


P.S.

I just moved in with a friend and when the 86 year old neighbor stopped by, she noticed the game and was quite interested in it! Turns out she loves Star Wars. . ( She's going to see Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots next week....love her!).

Thank you, thank you!!



I LOVE the games!

Holy Moly Santa you are awesome! This is my first year doing Secret Santa and I cannot tell you how much fun I have had! I felt like a little kid. Checking the mail everyday to see if Santa had came, I enjoyed the taunts as well.

I haven't experienced this much joy during Christmas in years! Thanks for being such an amazing Secret Santa and I hope yours was as good to you as you were good to me. Thanks a million! Off to play some new games!

It finally arrived! My Silent Santa had me nervous, but I never should have doubted!

I had my Secret Santa address set to go to my work, figuring it would be a fun surprise in the middle of a normal day.
I saw one of the mail room staff in the cafeteria around midday and he greeted me saying "I'll be around later, I've got a package for ya!".
I was so pumped...and of course after lunch was pure chaos and I didn't have a chance to even open the box robot, though I did sneak one picture:



Once I got home at the end of the day I cracked open the unassuming brown husk, then paused to bask in the glory:



After digging through the giant bubble wrap I unearthed



Flash Point!

I was thrilled. Pandemic is the go-to co-op right now and I'm pumped to expand my options with FP: FR, not to mention the fact that I've heard great things about it.

Many thanks Santa, or should I call you Rick?

mbmbmbmbmb

Santa sent word that his Delivery Elf Usps von Uspstenstein was delivering a package. That package arrived today. While I have not decided on opening things before Christmas or not (though I am leaning towards opening early) i wanted to thank Santa for going way beyond the call of duty. He has been sending hints and notes, hinting at the fun that was to come. Now that the box has arrived with SIX nice-sized boxes inside, it is clear that I got the real Santa this year. Update when the presents are opened!

THANK YOU, SANTA!

UPDATE:

So I was going to wait to Christmas to open these presents, but my son, who is also in this Secret Santa Exchange got his box in. After opening his gifts, he put a lot of pressure on me to open mine. So I did.

Santa had done some research and had contacted me a few times to get information and clarify things. He knew that I am a lover of things tiki and this played heavily in his gift choosing.

Box 1: The long box labeled with an "H & I"
Hawaiian Punch
Santa cautioned me not to expect great gaming moments in this game but felt that it should be included due to the thematic nature of the gift. While I have not played it yet, I laughed a lot when I opened it. It is definitely going to have pride of place on my game shelf. A great start to present opening.

Box 2: the box labeled with a "J"
Jamaica
This one is one of the top games on my wishlist. While not exactly "tiki" (due to the placement in a different body of water), the presence of Rum, Islands, and Wooden Ships puts it squarely within the theme. Love this choice, Santa!

Box 3: The box labeled "K & L"
Kanaloa
This one was a game I had never heard of. Thematically and graphically, I fell in love as soon as the wrapping paper came off. Christmas is about surprises and this one was that. I am looking forward to getting this one to the table.

Box 4: The box labeled "M & N"
Maka Bana
Another game I had not heard of and part of the Tilsit series. OK, getting 6 presents was fantastic, but the fact that they are all part of a theme is crazy! Good crazy, mind you.

Box 5: The smaller box labeled "O"
Outside the Scope of BGG
Are you freakin' kidding me? A tiki dice tower? Wow . . . just . . . wow. Here you can see the dice tower hanging with his new friends on one of my tiki mug shelves.

Box 6: The box labeled "P"
Pirateology: The Game
Santa pointed out that, while this might not be the best game, it has all kinds of great bits.

As a big fan of
Captain Treasure Boots
this looks perfect to pimp out the game.

So, as you may have figured out by now, my Santa was incredibly awesome. But what takes Santa off the chart is this:

Feeling bad about not being able to get two of the tiki-themed games on my list (as they have not been released yet), Santa offered to buy those two games when they come out and trade them to me for two of the games he sent (including postage). While I appreciate the offer, I am VERY happy with what I have already received. Believe me, Santa, you have been far too generous already.



I am willing to entertain the idea that your Secret Santa is great; I am unwilling to accept that he is better than mine!

Merry Christmas and thank you!

A box filled with wrapped gifts arrived on Friday from my Alternate Secret Santa. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of my mysterious benefactor. I am resisting the impulse to rip into everything.

so far...
Update!

The day has come at last! I was delighted to discover all the goodies my benefactor has bestowed on me. The box contained several different sweet treats, including candy coalcoal. A very cool stained glass ornament will become a permanent part of our Christmas decorations thanks to my Santa. There was also a collection of d10-1d10-0 paperback novels by James P. Hogan, each individually wrapped. The stunning surprise was the number of board games!

Seasons

Card games galore! My SS sent me a box from CoolStuffInc filled with card games. Famiglia, The Resistance, and Guillotine
Lots of fun games that I can introduce gaming to my non-gamer friends. These should fill my rainy winter nights. Thanks SS!

Wow! Santa was generous to me! I came home yesterday to two new games in a box for me.

7 Wonders and Race for the Galaxy. I'm *very* excited to play both of them.

Thanks again!

My awesome not so secret santa came up to my place and personally handed the gift to me. I wasn't expecting anyone so i guess he might have been a bit surprised to see a half naked dude answering the door. haha!

Too bad my my place was in a mess as my family was in a midst of putting up our christmas decorations, else i would have invited him in for a game or so.

Thanks for the gift Santa!!

I got my Secret Santa box today. It stayed unopened for about 23 minutes...

Inside where two gifts!!! But they were wrapped as well. Durn...

My wife put them under the tree. After dinner, I *attempted* to go and open them, but our new dog Moose (rescued by the way) stood guard and with those shifty eyes of his, seemed to say, "Oh no, sucker!!! Not today!!!"



Later that night, while Moose was preoccupied with a tasty rawhide candy cane, I snuck in and at least took measurements of the tantalizing gifts.

The red gift: 11 x 14 x 3.
The white gift: 9 x 13 x 2 1/2.

Strangely enough, the white gift weighs more than the red one?!? It must have gold bars inside of it. No joke - it's really heavy for the size of the box. Either gold bars or LOTS of cardboard jammed inside!

So any thoughts one what my goodies might be???

Thank you Secret Santa for your generosity!!! God bless you and have a great Christmas season. (Don't work *too* hard...)

Christmas Update
So the smaller gift that was so heavy, didn't have gold bars in it, but it did have Pastiche! Man, those are some thick tiles!!!

And the larger gift (nice call JesterPoet) was indeed Lords of Waterdeep!


Thank you Secret Santa! Moose did a great job guarding the gifts until 12:01am...

Secret santa has send me a picture of the box on monday morning, today a package arrived and I immediately reckonised the box from the picture! First I found village, a game I liked to play for a while now. None of my gamebuddies has it, so it is a good addition to the collection. i'm sure some of them would like to play it with me

Let's Take a Hike

As an extra was this small cardgame, which isn't on my list, but seems like a nice short game with the kids. Thank you santa!
