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.

and the expansion...



I have wanted Kingsburg and the expansion for a long, long time... I have played both several times and absolutely love these...

He also included



a great expansion for a great game...

the timing was awesome too... The reindeer dropped it off on Christmas eve... Alas, my apartment complex office closed early, so I had to wait (imagine that!) to pick it up until the 26th...

But now I have it... can't wait to play my own copies...

Santa gave me the option of opening the gifts on Christmas day or right when I got the package. I thought about waiting, but then was confronted with eager child-like hands that "convinced" me to let them open the gifts right away.



Also, we received:

Thank you so much Santa! You are awesome. Seaside was played at least 5 times during our short Christmas break and we're gearing up for many more!

When I first got the package I tried very hard to resist the urge to rip into it with reckless abandon - and not helping matters was the hole in the side of the box letting me see a small part of the box (but not the title nor publisher's imprint).

After an agonizing test of my willpower, Christmas morning finally came, when I did open the package with reckless abandon.

I was very pleasantly surprised to recieve not just this game but also the On The Brink expansion!

Thanks Santa!

My Secret Santa was extra efficient this year. He got me my packages way early, even after waiting for a bit thanks to my note in my profile about my need to update my Wishlist. I had updated my Wishlist, but had forgotten to remove things so my partner could get me some of the newly-removed items on it. Whoops, my bad.

Still, it had been sent, and he even sent me a message saying so! Yay! Which was a good thing, so I knew to look for it. Or, as the case turned out, so my friends could look out for it while I was away on a cruise in the Carribbean (and taking a backstage tour of Arecibo Radio Telescope). The package was gotten by my friend, and delivered the day after I returned.

My partner had been intending to get me some games for Solstice, so I opened the box and let him have a peek, so he would know which ones to not duplicate for me.

Solstice came, and friends came over to play games and keep us company through some of the night's vigil. We played games, a couple rounds of Dominion, and then a game of Small World. Midnight approached, and friends had to return home, since they worked the next day. Once they left, I tore into the box, eager to see what was there.

Coincidentally enough, I found Dominion: Seaside! Stacked on top of that I saw Small World: Grand Dames of Small World
and Small World: Cursed!!
Double woot! Now, I just have to have my friends over again, and we can play even more Dominion and Small World-y goodness!

Many thanks, Secret Santa! You were most excellent, as always!

Well my SS is awesome, he took me at my word that I was open to any game that SS may think I missing out on. Unfortunately FedEx drivers are stupid and he delivered my box to my neighbor that has been out of town. She was kind enough to walk my box over this morning. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at building the Great Wall. To my SS THANK YOU, to the FedEx driver.... well this isn't the place for those kind of words.

Thank you again SS hope you had a great holiday.

Awesome Secret Santa, thank you so much for both this and Keltis: Der Weg der Steine Mitbringspiel

I did not get to pick up the package untill today, as I was not home on the 23rd and the gas station where I have to pickup big letters etc was closed on Saturday.

edit: and today when I got home from playing Tara (among other games) I see a new package slip and it basicly can not be anything else than more Secret Santa gifts, or I totaly forgot something I ordered but I have reasons due to taunts to think that this too come from my Secret Santa.

So in midpacking for moveing tomorrow I have to go get it.
(I move on Saturday... well it's planed like that. But it might happend earlier now)

Ah it was Guatemala Café

Santa sent me this nice poem:
Santa wrote:
Subject: Ho Ho Ho!
'Twas the three weeks before Christmas
And all through the 'Geek
Stephen had not heard from Santa
Not once did he speak.

Until now - Santa finally
Sends Stephen a poem
Soon after will find
Goodies sent to his home.

Why silent up 'til now?
Why did Santa lurk?
The reason is simple
Santa's been out of work

Trying to decide
The best way to gift
Finally figuring it out
Santa's spirits did lift!

He would give Stephen games
Favorites he owns
Ones he'd like Stephen to have
Without taking out loans

So you're getting Santa's favorite game
And his second favorite, too!
(Hopefully this hasn't been
too much of a clue).

Just remember that they're used
But used with such care
That you wouldn't have known
If the shrink wrap were still there.

Play them! Enjoy them!
Share them with friends!
(Here's the part where
this terrible poem ends). laugh

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Stephen!

-Santa

And then a couple weeks later Race for the Galaxy, Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm, Race for the Galaxy: Rebel vs Imperium, and Le Havre show up under the Christmas tree!

But I think my SS lied to me. These games look completely untouched, other than to open the box to sleeve and sort everything!

Thank you so much Santa, you have made me one very happy geek!

What a great gift and completely unexpected (along with its soundtrack CD too)! But it didn't stop there. I also received Mr Jack which has already proved to be a hit with Mrs Dave!

Thank you Secret Santa- I won't say it too loudly in public, but it was my most anticipated gift under the tree!

I run the ASL Secret Santa over at the gamesquad forum, and so know the amount of effort that goes into these things. This one is 100 times larger than our effort, so I can only imagine the headaches it can cause.

Congratulations all for a suberbly run and well participated event.

I didn't think this was available and, though I had it atop my wishlist, I figured I'd get something else. I had plenty of games I wanted, but this was atop my list partially because I thought I couldn't have it. Well, my Secret Santa came through. Everyone in my family has had so much fun with it already that I had to write a session report about it...

My fave FOLGS Boards and Bits were used both by myself and my Secret Santa, very handy for quick deliveries to the western USA.

My incoming pressie was neatly wrapped by B&B and taunted me for almost a month due to it being delivered in early December. I don't think I have ever had a present so long without opening it, but I resisted temptation and held out until Christmas morn.

My SS taunted me with the following message:
Quote:

Dear Tim,

Your gift is under way
But not open until christmas, I pray.

How many days till Christmas?
It's mighty hard to tell.

Take off a link every night
When the Sandman casts his spell,

And Christmas Eve will be here
By the time you reach the bell.


The package included Dominion: Seaside and TTR Europa 1912, two games in the one package.

Many Thanks.

My outgoing gift to my SS target was ordered early, thumbsup but then due to factors beyond mine or B&B's control (the item was delayed getting to B&B) the actual pressie shipping was delayed. thumbsdown

After taunting my SS target a few times, I was feeling bad because it looked like the package may not arrive in good time for crimbo; thumbsdownthumbsdown so I kept my target as well informed as I could.

The package was actually shipped from B&B on Christmas Eve... too late for crimbo morn, but my target should get it today. thumbsup

Christian,

Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!

I see that you have been a good boy this year. Many good things have been said about you so that means you deserve a 'must have' gift from your wishlist. 'Must have' makes you sound so desperate. Are you really that desperate? You must exercise some self-control my boy. *tsk tsk tsk*

Your gift will likely arrive earlier than expected. Unfortunately, I can't deliver it to you personally because I'm sure you will understand that I can't split myself into a billion pieces to be everywhere at once, so I have decided to rely on my faithful elves to deliver it to you. Note that you are not supposed to open the gift until Christmas. If you fail to resist and attempt to open the gift before Christmas, it will sense a sense a security breach and blow up in your face. Self-control my boy, self-control...

If you feel a need to reply to this, leave a message on your Profile page and I will be able to read it from there.

All the best, and remember to be good!

Santa


I tried and promised to show self-control but circumstances prevented this... A few weeks after that taunt I got a note that I should pick up two parcels at my local post office? "Two?", I wondered. "Have I been this good this year?..."

So after a couple of days I picked up both packages. Both have been from a german online shop. Both had the same size and the same weight... This was too much for me to stand so I had to open them, hoping that the content is shrinkwrapped! But the hope was in vain! No shrinkwrap and to my surprise there were two copies of the same game!

I contacted the online shop, asking if my secret santa had to pay twice or if it was a mistake on their behalf. The latter was the case! So I sent back the duplicate copy (that's the christmas spirit ;-) ).

I hope that my lack of self-control was justified...

Thanks a lot to my santa for filling the last gap in my alea collection...
