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.

Received a box today from my Secret Santa.
I had received a message from his sidekick The Hurly Burly Elf who let me know that something was on its way.

I assumed from the message that my Secret Santa is a serving military man and was heading off to Baghdad any time soon.
My thoughts are with you and your family, I would like to wish you god speed and a safe and happy return.

A large brown box greeted me on my return from work, which I opened without even removing my coat, such was my excitement and anticipation. under the bubble wrap; two gift wrapped boxes!! I enlisted the help of my 3 year old daughter to open these lovely packages. She opened the smaller of the two "Le Havre" great! fancied this for a while now. So whats in the larger package.....

"Duel in the Dark"

Did`nt think to put this on my wish list but it has been on my radar (no pun intended) for a little while.
I think my Secret Santa must have noticed on my profile that I love "B17 Queen of the Skies" and "Wings of War" and rightly assumed this would be a winner!!

Thank You Santa very very much appreciated. Take care and have a safe 2010

HOLY CRAP!

Just had a call from my wife that our Secret Santa package has arrived from Brazil in the shape of a LARGE BOX.

Sorry about the excessive use of CAPS but I am pretty gosh darn EXCITED.

Only one problem... I am at work for another 7 hours! soblue

Thank you Santa! And thanks for the updates to let us know things were on the way. I'll update again when I get home!

UPDATE

I couldn't wait! I had to make an excuse and leave work an hour early...



Thanks Santa! Wow!

Not only did we get Alhambra (the anniversary edition with the awesome board), we also got:

Al Cabohne


AND

Keltis: Das Kartenspiel


AND

Pega o Pinguim!


Which looks like it will be a blast once we learn how to read Portuguese . Fantastic to get a Brazilian game though - awesome!

AND

of top of all that there was some Brazillian coffee!

So thank you very much Secret Santa - although you are not so "Secret" now thanks to customs...

Thank you Santa! I hadn't even heard of this until BGG.CON, and seeing it being played I put it on my list, but I feared that it'd be a while before I got to play it or demo it! I got back to work after the holiday, and saw that your elves had visited while I was away! And thank you for No Thanks, too (one of those "always been meaning to get" games)! We'll try and get it to the table asap!!!

Well,after waiting patiently, I received a "final" notice in the mail today that I had a parcel waiting to be picked up at the post office. Apparently they had the package since 30 November, got mixed up and forgot to leave me an initial notice. It's very understandable, considering how busy they are this time of year.

Inside the package, the game was giftwrapped, so it felt like Christmas all over again.

Today I received Small World!

Not only that, my generous Secret Santa also included the Small World Grand Dames mini-expansion.



I'm so stoked, I've heard so many great things about this game.

Secret Santa, I'm truly sorry that I doubted your existence. I am sincerely grateful for the very fine gifts!

Dear Santa !

I was indeed able to wait until x-mas until I opened my parcel and it was really a great surprise for me - 3 great games from a canadian Santa ! I already tried Pitchcar Mini a couple of times with my son (great fun, indeed !) and the other - very interesting looking - 2 games will hopefully be played soon !

The other 2 games are Formula Motor Racing and Sherpa.

My secret Santa this year got in touch with the Danish department of Santa's crazy elves. Innsmouth escape was very much appreciated, along with Boomtown!, Fzzzt! and Die Kutschfahrt zur Teufelsburg.


The best part was the chocolate, Christmas ornaments, Christmas music and even artificial snow(!) that Santa included forcheering us up with the Christmas mood!

Well, better post this late than never (just back from winter holidays) - here is what my AWESOME Santa sent me:

In the middle of december, a package arrived. It looked really big. Before i could open it, it was shrinkwrapped and hidden away for boxing day.

Opening the box some weeks later, I found it containing two great games from my wishlist!

In the Year of the Dragon

A challenging strategy game i have had my eyes on for quite some time, right from the top choices from my wishlist. Have yet to play it, but i am really keen to try it, probably on the upcoming weekend

Ponte el Diavolo

Nice-looking two player abstract. Yummy. I am a big fan of abstracts, and that fits right into my collection. Please someone tell me where and when "Anonymous Abstract Addicts" meet

Santa, you ROCK!

Dear Santa,

I got informed that the above game was from you my Secret Santa and not from Santa Grogs, Secret Santa of the wargamers where I made the initial post. So thank you very much. I do hope that you still visit this list to see that I have posted.
Furthermore it tells us that Santa Grogs needs a very own taunting account so that wargamers don't need to use the Santa account.

Wow, my Secret Santa really went beyond the call of duty!

In the early days on december my SS sent me a message telling me that my presents would be late because he would be gunning for something truly awesome.

All the way through december he kept sending me notices, assuring me he had not forgotten my christmas presents and giving little teasers on how great the game(s) would be, which made me all squemish and tickly inside. I could hardly wait!

And he had truly not forgotten me.

This morning I got a notice from my local post office that a package had arrived. I rushed to pick it up, only to leave for practice immediately after getting it through the front door. When I returned later this evening, exhausted from work, I suddenly remembered the parcel and ran to open it.

Inside I found not one but two games, both new, hot-off-the-press games everybody (including me) has been talking about: Luna Llena (I already punched everything and read the rules, drips with theme, just how I like it) and Carson City (which I have been waiting to get my hands on for months, and I was about to open it when I remembered I should thank my Santa so he can happily leave for his vacation (he knows what I mean by this) ) !

I truly, sincerely thank you Santa. You could not know this but in my line of work (or arts in general I quess), the salary isn't that good and so I asked only mandatory things for christmas presents from my loved ones: socks, other underwear, new clothes in general, plays (books), new shoulderbag (my last one was stolen right before holidays), and so on. I didn't wish for and didn't get a single game, first christmas like this in 5 years since I have founded my own group this year and money is too thight to buy one myself, and so...

... You have saved this gamers christmas. Happy year 2010 and a lovely vacation to you, dear Santa! Hope I get to send you something next year!

The first was Dominion Seaside. But as I don't own the base game, this one will have to sit a little until I get around to order the base game.

The second one was Munchkin. I know what you think, but I have a group of friends who are just right for this kind of game.


Thanks Santa,
I hope it was ok to open the package before Christmas 2010
