Please note - I have removed all old placeholders from this list. Please only use this list to record the receipt of games actually received from your Santa.

Only use placeholders to let your Santa know you received your package but are waiting to open it. When you actually open the package, please update the entry with the game(s) you received and express your reaction for your Santa. Please let me know if you experience any problems with this via GeekMail. Sorry for any confusion...now on to the list:


Since we just got our Secret Santa Targets assigned --

Last year's episode of "Look what my Secret Santa sent me..." was well received, so I am creating the same list again for 2007.

I originally posted this as a way to let my Santa know when I receive my gift without him/her worrying about letting me know who (s)he is. Use this as a central area to record what our Secret Santas sent us. If you plan on using this list, you may want to make a note on your profile so your Secret Santa knows to look on the list for your receipt and 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 divulged!

If your Santa sends you more than one item, just list them all in one listing unless you think it makes more sense to list them separately. Remember to include any comments you want your Secret Santa to know!

I don't know about anyone else, but I generally obsess about whether a package has arrived at it's intended destination. I drive my wife crazy with checking tracking numbers constantly! So it will be nice to see when those gifts are actually received by the giftee (or are they just sitting unclaimed on the neighbor's porch?)

(I am just using a generic Christmas first item as a placeholder for mine until my gift arrives, at which time I will update it with the real gift). In case you were wondering - yes, I do have a probably unfounded fondness for this holiday.

Now for the big question - do you open the gift or allow it to taunt you from under the tree until your local Christmas/Holiday gift opening?

I came home Friday night, after a long week of work, to find a huge box in my foyer. My wife had taken the day off and had brought it in from the porch. She thought it was some of the stuff we ordered from Circuit City, but I looked at the label and saw it was from Thoughthammer. What in the world would require such a large box, I wondered. In the back of my mind I knew Thoughthammer didn't giftwrap, but I carefully buried that thought and tore open the box. To what did my wondering eyes appear, but Age of Empires III! I've had this on my wishlist, mostly to remind myself to buy it sometime. I never expected such a generous gift.

I looked at the packing sheet, and realized that wasn't all that was hiding in the pile of pink packing peanuts. I dug around and pulled out


and



OMG! I am simply blown away by the generosity of my Secret Santa. I've already opened AoE III (hence the picture I selected), and Mr. Jack and Hera & Zeus will be great games for my wife and I to play. I feel very blessed, and I hope my Secret Santa has a blessed holiday season too.

Thank you Santa!

Thank You SANTA!!!!!

I hope you didn't seriously think that I was going to wait almost a whole month to open it. 1960: The Making of the President was exactly what I'd hoped for, because I doubt that any of my family would pick something like this up for me (even if it was on the top of my wishlist). I really, truly appreciate the utter coolness of my first Christmas present this year!!!

First time participating in Secret Santa and I've been lucky enough to be associated with one who has both a sharp wit and who is very generous indeed. An example of the wit:

That is the end of the clue. If you haven't figured it out by now, you will be enlightened shortly. That is, assuming the consortium of delivery persons does their job. I enlist their help every now and again. This year Dancer and Prancer have an infectious skin disease, which is really hampering my distribution channel. I tried to shoot them to prevent their crud from spreading to the other reindeer, but Mrs. Clause threw her hunkahunka burnin love body across the stable door and wouldn't let me in.

The delivery consisted of a hugh huge box consisting of no fewer than 11 games. Yes, I said e-l-e-v-e-n games. Excited? You bet I was! So far I've only opened the one - Pitchcar. I intend to string out the enjoyment of opening the packages for as long as possible ...

The nicely wrapped gifts look like this:



Many thanks for the e-mails & the parcel and a Merry Christmas to you Secret Santa, whoever and wherever you are!

Wow! My Secret Santa surprised me with his generosity. Not only did he get me the masterpiece edition of Key Harvest which I'm incredibly excited for but he also got me a set of tree house pieces and the New Moon expansion for Werewolf.

It made me laugh to see that he had done his research and found out that I loved games with purple pieces and made sure that he got me the Tree House with purple pieces and apologized that Key Harvest didn't have any.

Thanks so much Secret Santa. Your gift was wonderful and more than I expected. Your generosity made my Christmas extra fun and my wife and I are excited to try out the new games.

Merry Christmas!

Earlier this week I got an email from Santa saying that his elves had sent me a package from Funagain games.
I got home on Friday after work and had a package on my doorstep. Unable to hold my excitement, I opened it right away.
Inside, 2 fun games that were on my wishlist. I guess I was a good boy this year.

Giro Galoppo is going to be a fun game to play with 5!

THANK YOU SANTA!!!

I was out of town over the weekend and had a package coming. So I had a friend cheek my front door on Friday, so they would not be exposed to the elements for too long. On Saturday I called up my friend and my package had arrived, but he said there were two. I asked him where the second one came from, he said 'thoughtharmer.com'. So I quickly found a computer and checked my geek-mail and Santa has shipped my package, YAY!!!. I called my buddy back and had him give me a description of the box but it sounded too big for any game on my list. fast foreword a day and a half - my friend is at work with my box locked in his car. finally got my box from him, I ripped the box open in his driveway and found not 1, but 2 games:Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga and Carcassonne.

Both games have been on my list for some time. this really made my weekend, especially since i had been out of town due to a funeral. so once again
THANK YOU SANTA!!!

WOO HOO!!!
It's here!!! My secret santa gift has arrived. Yay!!!

I happened to be on holiday from work today, so I was in when the postal worker called at my door with a mystery package... I actually knew it was on it's way however, as I'd received an email over the weekend, from infinity games, telling me my order had shipped..... a slight surprise, since I was not aware of having ordered anything.

I'm really pleased to get this game, as it has been at the top of my wishlist for a few months, having played it a couple of times, and I was really hoping to get it for Christmas, as I had previously already bought the Nile expansion (which I thought might go out of stock really quickly).

So really pleased to get this from my Secret Santa.

Thank You, whoever you are.kiss

AND Tsuro too!



Both are games I really wanted. My group plays Ticket to Ride a lot and I wanted one that plays better with less people, so TTR Switzerland is perfect.

As for Tsuro, my collection is in dire need of light, fun, filler games and this is a perfect for all those categories. A friend owns it and I fell in love with it since the first day due to its challenge and simplicity.

Thanks Secret Santa!

Monday 8 a.m.

It was raining outside, and I was still on my beauty sleep, dreaming with nice weather, beaches and almost naked girls.
By this time, Santa was passing by my house, in his packed full slay making out with Miss Clause…

In a moment of pure pleasure, the old Santa got wild and started this Christmas a little earlier this year…
So he checked his list to find out who was the most well behaved boy in board games this year. He checked and cross checked, to find out it was ME…

He then went online and check my wishlist at BGG, he select the most perfect, gift-wrap it and trough the package…

The parcel started his descend, increasing his speed after re-entering earth atmosphere, gaining a speed of march 6, it dodge clouds, rain drops and trees and was coming right at my head. But my spider senses were on, and in the last second I woke up and dodge the 20 pound package. I run to the window and shout to him

“hey Santa… too slow… Mmuhhhhaaahhhaaa…”

In the end I open the box to see that I’ve got not one, but two presents…

The first was Alhambra and the second the thief of Bagdad.

So I got two of the games I really wanted, all because my SS is the best there is…

Thanks for the gifts and for the great wakeup call… merry Christmas to you and to every one…
HOHOHO…

I had my Secret Santa sent his package to my parents where I will spent Christmas. This way I'm not tempted to open the package prematurely. This weekend my mother called me on the phone. She told me that last week a package for me from Milan Spiele has arrived. Now I only have to wait three weeks until Christmas Eve...

(to be continued)

(I've spent the time since Christmas at my parents' house. Therefore I had no access to the internet and could not update this list entry.)

My Secret Santa gave me 'Zug um Zug: Europa'. (He enlisted the help of 'Milan Spiele', who very nicely gift wrapped the game.) I since had the opportunity to play it with my sister and her friend. We all liked it quite a lot. Now that I'm back in Dortmund, where I live, I'm eager to play it with my regular gaming groups.

Thanks Secret Santa, you made an excellent choice.

Gratefully yours,
Ralf

Well, I'm trying to figure out how to let my Secret Santa know that the box arrived. This seemed a good way to do it, though I am (im)patiently waiting to open it until Christmas I can't take it any longer.

Guess a shape? Well, the box is rectangular. That should narrow things down! cool

Thank you Santa. I'm very sorry about the underbaked cookies last year and I hope you didn't get salmonela poisoning.

Thanks Secret Santa

Mine came from Canda with an incredible hand drawn card with a Christmas Rat.

The wonderful postman had left the package at the outer edge of our small front balcony and while driving home from work I drove through the worst thunderstorm so far this year so the outside of the package was quite wet. Fortuneately when I opened it the card was quite thick and thewater had not even soaked through to the layer of bubble wrap.

Last week I get this cryptic geekmail from my SS:

Secret Santa wrote:
"A Prediction: One day a Jew will be a Secret Santa. He will be forced to send a game to someone who lives in CHRISTIANSBURG. He may have to find someone to sue."


But it seems prediction was the wrong word to use there. UPS dropped off a box and ran not long after I had gotten home from work. Delivered from Boulder Games, it took me a moment to register what it was. Never being the patient type, I sliced the box open and sorted through the peanuts to find a copy of Prohpecy! Can't wait to get to try it!

Mazal tov, Secret Santa!

Huzzah! My Secret Santa is incredibly generous! I received Starcraft and the Ticket To Ride: Switzerland games today!



Also, there was some style involved: I received a note via BGG mail from one Mr Peppy, the Public Relations Officer at SantaCorp, telling me that my gift was en route, despite our wet weather here in Seattle (and it has been very wet here the last three days, including a day of snow). Fun stuff!

I couldn't wait until the 25th both due to excitement and also because my BGG wishlist is circulated to the family. Thus, Santa, you saved potential repeat purchases with your zippy delivery!

Excellence all around. I'm spoiled!

Thank You!

Well, Santa came through, but I made a mess of things (see comments below). blush In addition to the family treat Gulo Gulo we also got a copy of Citadels, with Citadels: The Dark City included!

EDIT: Hey, I just discovered a note amidst the packing peanuts and attached was a Spin-4-It! surprise Neat-o! I don't know if this was Santa's doing, or just a little extra from Games Surplus, but either way, it's pretty cool. Thanks!

Thank you Santa!

I received the item at the top of my list! How could I ask for anything more? You are fantastic!

I've never played it but I am certain I will enjoy!

Thank you Secret Santa!

I stayed home today because I was sick. So...I'll blame my feverish delirium for why I opened this awesome gift early. It came with a great little hand drawn card depicting a meeple and a pawn(?) playing golf. One of my favorite activities (Santa indeed did his/her homework). Well you surely hit a hole-in-one this time Secret Santa. I don't know who you are, but I suspect you may be from or near Pittsburgh, since a wadded up Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was protecting the contents of the box. Once again thank you Secret Santa I hope my target is as happy with my gift as I am with yours.

I've already mentioned getting Zooloretto from my Secret Santa. Imagine my surprise when I found an envelope in the mail today from The Netherlands. Inside was the Polar Bear Expansion, as well as Zooloretto: Three Extra Enclosures and Zooloretto: Building Sites! There was also a nice postcard from my Santa!

Hooray! I had no idea anything else was coming, and this was a complete (and wonderful) surprise. Thanks again, Santa!
