Once again I am running this list as a central location to let your Secret Santa know when your (hopefully much appreciated) gift has arrived to your house.

Use this list to record what your Secret Santas 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!

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 years' editions of this list have gone, look at these links:


"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"



Simon's yearly breakdown of games:
**EDIT Just Added** Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2009

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2008

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2007

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2006



[b]New Note (I placed this in the comments section as well): If you have added a "Comment" of your gift receipt, please take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than to place a comment in this section of the receipt of your gift. The actual items being added is how the statistics get accumulated for Simon Hunt's great results list located at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/49122

A good example of how to make an entry useful for this other list is located at: this entry.

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

I received a box from German Games yesterday containing not one, but TWO wrapped boxes, a small and a big one!

Looking at the size and weight of the boxes, I must say I am quite stumped at what they could be? Bonny & Clyde and The Adventurers maybe?

I'll have to wait and keep the suspense until January 2nd: by tradition, BGG fellows weishaupt, faqtotum and I open our Secret Santa gifts together during our annual Holiday Game Extravaganza (start at 10 AM, stops when we can't stay awake anymore!), along with our own gift exchange. But I wanted to make sure my very kind Santa knew his package got home safely, and is looked at with very longing eyes...

(Edited to add the actual identity of one game so it can be tracked)

Just in the Nick of Time!!

My package arrived last night (Dec 24th). Aaannnndddd, they were wrapped. So I decided to just put them under the tree and wait until we regularly open presents on Christmas Morning. Well, we just finished and I got Zertz. It's a great Abstract, akin to Checkers maybe. It's the only Gipf Game I'm really interested in other than Yinsh, which I already had.


But that's not all. And this wasn't even on my wishlist, but I think my SS read about me a little and tried to figure out what I might like, because I got Lifeboat as well, which is amazing, because I've looked at it before as the theme and stuff sounded very intriguing to me. I can't wait to give this one a shot.

Thank you Very Much Secret Santa!!!

My Secret Santa was super nice to me this year. I opened the box this morning, and the first thing I saw was



Small World Cursed! This is going to be great. Small world is one of my favorites, and it's had a resurgence of popularity recently in my gaming group.

under that I could just make out what the next game was through the packing peanuts



Another great choice. I really like adventure games. Arkham Horror is one of my favorites, and a friend of mine has had a good point that the choices aren't so story based or themed in that one. This is going to be a great one to try out.

And finally...well I guess I've already given away the surprise with the geeklist item



WOW! This was an amazing gift. I've been watching the LOTR movies again with my family (we just finished Two Towers), and I got the Confrontation in the Fantasy Flight sale, so I'm in a Lord of the Rings mood more than I've ever been.

Thank you so much Santa. This was a really great gift. I'm very touched that you were so generous to me this year.

So excited!
My present was delivered today, Christmas day!
Santa sent me a game at the top of my wishlist by a favorite designer.

He also sent another game at the top of my wishlist by a different favorite designer: Palazzo

In addition, he sent some small card games:
Farfalia, Abracadabra, and Mister Bill.

One of these small bonuses already looks like it has a home in my gaming group. All in all, an amazing gift from Santa!

So I go to the local game shop to collect something and the friendly lady behind the counter says, "Oh, I have something here for you." As she turns around I see behind her the item I have come to collect, but when she turns back she is holding in her hand something shrouded in wrapping paper. What's this I wonder. Not what I had expected. Certainly my name features prominently on the card in big friendly letters. I am most definitely intrigued. Inside the card it says Christmas 2009. My superb detective skills quickly tell me this must be the gift from Santa, who has been very, very secret.

When I get it home my SO says to me, "Open it, open it.", but "No", I say, "I shall not be swayed from my resolve to put it by our little tree and await Christmas morning".



Well to cut a long story short (or is it too late), inside was Dominion Intrigue, and we're about to give it a try. Thanks Santa.

WOW! My Secret Santa this year went ALLL out! Not only did I get Pitch Car Mini but I also got
!!! But it didnt stop there, they sent me another stocking stuffer which I posted earlier which was No Thanks!! And then they had gifts galore afterwards!


As you can see from the picture, my SS got my Wife a bookmark with her first initial on it. They gave us instant snow so we could have a white Christmas down South. SS noticed my Chit Chat roots and got me adhesive bacon bandaids! They also got our cat Phantom a mouse toy which she loves! They also got me a model of my absolute favorite tank in the whole world, the Tiger 1 . And last but not least they got us a selection of Seattle chocolate!!! As you can see one has already been sampled...it is the absolute best chocolate we have EVER had...its even better than the local homemade chocolate shop (and thats saying something). Theres no waxiness to the chocolate as soon as you put it in your mouth it melts...its so good without being too sweet....my Mom is inquiring about where we can get some around here. I cant wait to try the rest.

A HUGE thank you to my SS, you put alot of time in this and I thank you. Its been the best SS for me yet, Im amazed at what you found for me. Thanks SOOOO MUCH!

Whoo hoo!!! I got two gifts from Santa this year. One simply couldn't fit in the car to bring down to San Diego (we had to haul games, cat, gifts, ourselves, and laundry) and because I *think* I know what it is, I brought the smaller one, which I'd been shaking and sniffing for days. So I've only opened one gift and the other will be opened later today. Thanks, Santa, for Dixit!! It's the PERFECT Secret Santa present because it's the kind of luxurious game that I'd never get for myself, which makes it extra special. THANKS!

Update: And the second gift was GHOST STORIES!!!!!!!! w00t!! Another gift that is absolutely perfect because I would probably never get around to buying it even though it is a) the best coop I've played so far (haven't tried Pandemic yet) and b) perfectly themed (us asian kung fu types kick butt). And in case you were wondering, no, I did NOT guess that it was this. I kind of sort of thought it might have been Dominion, but this is way way WAY better!

THANKS SECRET SANTA!!

Santa sent the biggest box of games I've ever seen! And booby-trapped it to ensure it would only be opened on Christmas morn'.

Inside, amidst a blizzard of packing peanuts (Santa wanted to insure I had a white Christmas too) I found the most delightful things. Santa, you are too much (and the best!)

Babel
This is a welcome addition to my collection of the Kosmos 2-player series.

Bang!
I'm gradually getting a gaming group started and I think this will be a lot of fun for the group.

Small World
Another one for the group, and a game I've really really wanted for a long time! I think I've looked at this game every time I've bought games but somehow hadn't bought it yet.

And finally, my favorite!
Mr. Jack
I have wanted this game forever and even looked for it in shops all around, but never found it on the shelves. I'm so excited about this one and it will get played today!!

Santa, once again, thank you so much, you have made me deliriously happy and I hope you are equally joyful today and throughout the new year!

The day finally arrived! Santa tells me that my gift is coming in two shipments, but only this one arrived before the 25th, and has been sitting, first on a shelf and then under the tree, since it got here. First thing after church this morning, I opened it and was very happy indeed to see the scene at left on the box of cards.

Thank you Santa, and don't be soblue about the delay to the other stuff. Like I said, it just makes Christmas go on longer!


UPDATE!!! And another package arrived!

Just before the new year, but I've been a bit busy, hence the delay in posting. Sorry Santa, but thank you so much!

The box contained this game:


complete with this expansion:


I'm very happy to have got this game, which has been on my wishlist for a while, but never quite got to the top! My wife and I love 2-player games for evenings in, so this will get table time really soon. Thanks very much.

Also in there, in case I am inspired by the expansion to try and create my own, or if I break or lose any pieces and need replacements, was this:


an insect-catching themed utility belt, from a very cool store in NYC. The belt and gadgetry looks like this:


And finally, in order that people don't realise that it is mild-mannered me out there catching bugs, a mask, to protect my identity:


(Note how I'm also wearing a hoodie which should ensure blame goes Gotham-wards in the first instance...)

Thank you Santa, for two great games and a splendid extra present (which my Godson, a fan of all things insect, is also going to be very excited about! )

Happy New Year to you, and enjoy your vacation until next year!

Finally, Christmas day has arrived and my wife let me open my Secret Santa present. She is a tough, but fair woman!

Inside the package there is not one, not two, but three boxes.

It is a Days of Wonder extravaganza!

First of all there is Shadows over Camelot. A game I have coveted for a long time. I really enjoy playing co-operative games with my wife and friends and now I have this and the expansion-


Shadows over Camelot: Merlin's Company



And then on top of that there is


Colosseum



I love game bits and this is the daddy!

Thank you so much to my very generous Secret Santa. I am looking forward to getting these games to the table in the next couple of days.
Thanks for making my Christmas day.

I wish you and your family a very merry Xmas!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Secret Santa. I am always amazed at the generosity of the Secret Santa's here on the Geek and mine certainly fell into that crowd. I opened my gift this morning and was amazed to see Endeavor in the box, but not only that, there was also Middle Kingdom to boot!!! So to my Secret Santa, I say "thank you" and I hope that your Secret Santa was just as great to you as you were to me!!
