For those of you new to this list, I originally posted this list back in 2006 as a way to let my Santa know when I receive my gift without him/her worrying about divulging their identity. The list has gone well in the last two years and I am curious how large it will grow this year since there are around 1000+ participants this year (529 items in 2006, 874 items in 2007). This is a pretty good place to view the gifting as it progresses through the holiday season, so enjoy!

Use this as a central area to record what our Secret Santas sent us. When you post on 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 released!

Please only make an entry when you actually receive the present!

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?)


To see how the previous two years of Secret Santa-ing have gone on those year's versions of this list, look at these links:

I got home from work on friday to find a Fedex package waiting for me from Thoughthammer. Well that can only be one thing I thought. Fortunately I have a concrete policy set up for this type of situation. I open the box, if the SS gift is wrapped I leave it wrapped till christmas day. If it is unwrapped I enjoy it as soon as possible. So needless to say I have a game night scheduled for this wednesday!
Thank you secret santa!

This is my first year participating in Secret Santa. So I have been waiting excitedly for my gift to arrive (just sent out my target's package today).

I was at BGG.CON when the package arrived from Boards & Bits. Normally when packages arrive at my house from B&B, I have lots of explaining to do to my wife if she sees it. So my daughter, who I'm training to be a BG Geek, helps me out. She gets home from school early in the afternoon, and has a standing order to intercept and hide any packages from B&B. She also gets to open them.

So she did her job masterfully when my SS package arrived. When I called home during BGG.CON, she told me what I got.

And I'm VERY happy! In addition to the RftG:GS, I also got
Saint Petersburg: New Society & Banquet Expansion
and
Battle Line

Three awesome items that I really wanted. THANK YOU SANTA!

    Everyone knows that Boomer is the hottest toaster on the show, so her card gets the nod at left.

    I got email from Boulder Games last week indicating that my gift was on the way, which really got my hopes up since they're one of the few places that still have Battlestar in stock. But I didn't want to get too excited until I saw it with my own eyes.

    Well there it is -- it's sitting next to me right now, and it's the one game that I was going to get from my wishlist, one way or another. Santa nailed it this year.

    I'm a big fan of cooperative games and with my kids getting to an age where they can play as well this one was a must-have for both my buddies and my family. I love spaceships too. It's just a perfect fit for me.

    I'm working from home today and my wife calls out "that's the UPS truck you're hearing!" I ran down the stairs hurdled one of my boys and shot out the door in my stocking feet. The UPS guy was laughing at me when I grabbed it from him and asked if he had a knife. He said, "I've done my part, you take it from here."

    Thank you Santa wherever you are, you just made my day. Thank you to Boulder Games as well, who always include candy in the box. That kept the kids at bay while I dug the game out of the peanuts. A nice touch.

    Which one of you is a frakkin' Cylon? Just warming up.

             Sag.

This post is a bit late, but blame it on my really efficient santa and a really inefficient me
So last thursday, I pull up in the driveway and see a large box on my doorstep. My first response was something along the line of "What the? I don't have anything due to arrive anytime soon..". So after getting out of the truck, I pick up the box and see it's from thoughthammer. My next thought was "Huh? I had an order a few weeks ago for monsterpocalypse.. did they somehow duplicate it?". Curiosity abounded, and I had to open it up, and finally it dawns on me.. "My secret santa? Already? Wow!" And I find not only a copy of Galaxy Trucker, but also

"Double wow!" So thank you very much Galactic Santa!

Ok, so I got my Secret Santa package, and was very surprised and thankful to find two wrapped boxes in there! Very exciting! I spent the afternoon guessing what was what, waiting for my fiance to get home so we could open them together. Now, normally I would wait for Christmas, but as we will be apart this holiday, and she is the person I play all my games with, I thought it would be better to open them, and give them some use when we can... which is NOW!

So, thanks very much, Secret Santa! 1960 was my no. 2 guess for the big box, but I hit small box on one try - it is:



My first expansion for AH - very exciting. Can't wait for a whole new realm of getting my ass handed to me. We're playing 1960 tonight after dinner.

Many thanks Santa for such generosity!

Santa geekmailed me last week and told me that I just barely made it on his "nice" list - Mrs Claus and Rudolph didn't appreciate me being a wargamer, but Santa was cool with it

Not only did Santa send me this expansion but he generously sent three other games, too.







Thank you very much Secret Santa. I'm glad that I made your "nice" list!

Santa arranged for a package to arrive over the weekend while I was away at BGG.Con... Luckily, we live in a nice honest neighbourhood, so the package was still sitting on my front porch. I bet Santa had a word with them.

I quickly opened it up to find a nicely wrapped long box. I was all set to leave it that way until Christmas but my wife threw me to the ground & twisted my arm until I opened it (she's got a lot less willpower than me)

Tikal!

It's a game I've played once a few years ago & fell in love with. The art, the mechanics, the structure all just fall in place with what I love about Eurogames... Unfortunately, it's not the sort of game I can get to the table often, so I've never bought it. Thanks a *bunch*, Santa, for getting me a game I've wanted for a long time.

My Secret Santa identified himself as "Cthulhu Claus" and warned me that the Ancient One was "coming!" I feverishly boarded up my windows and locked the doors and did everything I possibly could to maintain my sanity...knowing that THE DAY OF REVELATION was upon me. Then a package arrived, wrapped in non-descript gray/silver paper (the color of a sacrificial dagger!). My breathing quickened and I quickly dropped the package, afraid to unwrap it. Cthulhu Claus warned me of the attack on my sanity that would occur if I opened it before Christmas, so I waited. But the whisperings of Cthulhu Claus came to me in my dreams. I tossed and turned, hardly sleeping, having difficulty eating, sitting and just staring at...the package. What was I to do?!? The pounding in my brain got stronger until, finally, I could take it NO MORE! I ripped open the package to find the expansions:

"The King in Yellow"

and

"The Black Goat of the Woods"


I gibbered with glee, slobber dribbling down my chin. Now I could seek to follow the instructions in the whisperings of Cthulhu Claus, promising glory and great knowledge. I know I am teetering on the brink of madness, and it is my choice, but what a wonderful choice it is! I cannot wait. I run to my table and begin to game. Oh, the glory! Oh the joy! Oh the madness! How delicious! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Cthulhu Claus!!!!

Who can argue with such logic?

I got my package yesterday, and I very excited. I'm planning to wait until my girlfriend comes into town on Thanksgiving. I think I can make it until then. Thank you so much, Santa from Tuscon!

EDIT

My girlfriend came in last night, after proposing to her, then eating some turkey, we opened up my Secret Santa gift.

I was very excited to see one of my top games on my wishlist, LNoE, that I have really wanted since getting to play Touch of Evil. My fiance who loves all things Halloween was very happy to break it out and give it a play. We had a fun game, I managed to kill the 15th Zombie with my last shot in the last hour before sunset!

Thank you very much Santa you made a very special night that much better!

Today I recieved a box from Fungain.com. Since I never order games in the US, I immediately knew my secret Santa was behind it.

I also knew because we received an order confirmation by email last week..... Luckily my wife checked the mail before I did. I had told her about the Secret Santa program and she immediately understood that this email was for Santa's eyes only.
She told me that she had recieved an order confirmation from an online gameshop, but that she had deleted it because she believed it to be from my Secret Santa. She refused to give me any details. I must admit that I asked her to tell me more, but she wouldn't, just like I expected. (Why are women only predictable at the few moments you wished they weren't?!?)

So no harm was done. I found out that a package was comming my way, but that was no real surprise. The fun was not spoiled since I still didn't know who my Santa is and I still did noy know what I was going to get.

But now I know, and Santa has done me a big favour by sending me Command and Colors: Ancients! GMT games are hard to find in The Netherlands and this was among the #1 games on my whishlist.
(There were no instructions about not opening the box untill Christmas, so I just followed my instinct .)

Santa also left a message. "No beter time to give and few better things to do than game". And he is absolutely right about that! The gift I sent has safely reached my target (he posted on this list allready), and his reaction allready made my first Secret Santa a wonderfull experience. But with Command and Colors: Ancients it gets even better! Now I really don't know any better things to do than game.

I intend to play the game with a friend of mine this friday. That should be possible if I start applying the unit stickers right now and skip sleeping the next few days....

Thanks Santa for this great game and your kind words!

Dear Santa,

got it today - thanks a lot.

I simply couldn't wait and opened it immediately:

 


My twelve year old son is positively itching to play this (he absolutely loves everything Carthaginian, which means that I will be forced to play the Romans) - but he'll have to wait until the blocks are stickered.

I am really looking forward to playing it with him - and plenty other people as well.

Again, thank you so much!

Sorry this is a couple of days late (this is a busy time of year for us college professors!), but I am very excited to say that my gift has arrived!

Santa was very generous! Not only was there a copy of Stonehenge (a game I've been interested in since it was released) but there was also this:



The Nocturne expansion!

And, really, since the whole point of the system is to get multiple games with the same bits, I now have almost ten new games to try!

Thank you Secret Santa! You're awesome!

In addition to the already named To Court the King, I received:
Cosmic Eidex

I have been wanting to learn this game very badly so this PERFECT!
and
Falling
I am a huge fan of James Ernest so was thrilled to have received the new version!



THANK YOU SANTA!


Perfect choices! cool

Dear Santa

Errr, uhhh, I asked for sex, got Six, oh wait - same thing

This game was definitely at the top of my list and am really looking forward to playing over the Thanksgiving holiday.

If I turn out to be a Cylon will I get a lump of coal next year?

Thanks Santa!

(Hmm, "My Precious Presents" had a picture, which disappeared)

SC (as in Secret Claus),

I came home late last night after swim coaching. My wife thoughtfully left a box from a game store, near the door and then said you can't open it yet gulp. Last night that was fine, as it was time for bed anyways.

This morning it was calling to me as i got ready to leave. I got as far as shaking it which gave me no clues.

I'm trying hard not to open it. I will see how good my will power is. Today is the 25th, so i might not be able to contain myself once i get home tonight.

Santa, thanks a lot!

-Donald

Nick the jolly elf from Shire Games delivered my secret santa present to the pub games night last night (no hat or costume though)

I have worked out that there's a game (no really) and a game expansion in the parcel but have resisted the urge to open it yet.

I think I know what's in there though zombiezombiezombie

cheers SS
