For those of you who are new to the Secret Santa List:

I run this list as a central location to let your Secret Santa know when your (hopefully much appreciated) gift has arrived.

Use this list to record what your Secret Santa 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! This assists those of us who read the list regularly as recipients are adding their gifts in a chronological order.

In years past this list has been heavily monitored as the gifting season approaches and I am sure the same will hold true this year.

I find it very handy to put a link on your profile page so your Secret Santa knows where you have posted the feedback so s/he doesn't have to sort through 2000 entries to find yours quickly.


To see all previous years' editions of this list and to give the new Secret Santa participants an idea of how this works, look at these links:

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"



To see Simon Hunt's statistical breakdown of previous years' Secret Santa:

UPDATE New list: Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2010


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



IMPORTANT - When you get your gift(s), take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than place a comment at the bottom of the list. This helps the statisticians out there.

A good example of how to make an entry containing multiple gifts is located at: this entry.

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

It arrived yesterday. I found it behind the door in bedroom.


After closer look I am sure it is from my Secret Santa.


I haven't ordered anything from Rebel.pl since few months. And The Best Wife Ever forbade me to touch it until Christmas Eve.

To be continued...

EDIT:
On St. Nicholas' Day I eventually persuaded The Best Wife Ever to free smaller box out of package. And I found Fasolki.

I am sure The Best Wife Ever will not show any weakness till Christmas Eve. So I have to be patient

To be continued...

EDIT:
We brought our Christmas tree on Saturday. Although we didn't have time to dress it, I put a present for The Best Wife Ever underneath it. And yesterday I found another, definitely larger, package beside the first one. And I'm sure I haven't put it right there.

To be continued...

EDIT:
And here it is. My brand new, gorgeous board game with great theme and high re-playability.
Ladies and gentlemen! The one and only: Notre Dame

Thank you very much Secret Santa Claus! Your gift made me very happy!
I haven't had time to play it, but I'm going to try it in few days.

I got lucky this year, once again! My Secret Santa was a very funny fellow, tricking me even in thinking that he didn't understand the rating system! for a second, I thought that he didn't even care looking at my wishlist and instead went for the ratings, thinking I actually liked the worst games I played. But no, he was just tricking me with his clever ignorance

Yesterday, I went to pick my package at the post office. I had a friend coming to play the amazing Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 - ?, so I wait for him to open it with him! The size of the box looked like an Agricola-sized box, so I thought it could be 1853! But no! The fine folks at Fungames Café managed to stuff a whopping 4 boxes into this package! With a nice wrapping paper too!

I didn't want to wait... So opening time! I started from smallest to biggest box.


A Small World Expansion! I like the idea of this one too, Great pick!


Another Small world Expansion! Small World is indeed a great game to expand, and I like how easy to take an expansion like Cursed and mix it to the base game! Also bundled in the same package was a third Small World expansion! Very generous! Now I'll need them all


The next box was a format I know very well! Fantasy Flight Silver Series. Yup! A game I wanted to try a lot, knowing I love FF's designs, and especially Space Hulk. I read Michael Barnes review of this one and I knew I had to try it, so this is awesome!


And yes, it's not over! There was one last box! I had no idea what this could be, and once I opened it, I was quite glad: an out of list gift! This is the first time I get one I gave an out of list gift two years ago and I was really happy to do it. I think analyzing the person's profile and finding something that you like and that you think he will like as well is an awesome thing. So, I opened Dragon's Gold, a game I knew existed but never really knew what it was about. My friend knew about it and explained me what it was about. I smiled, thinking how the little tidbits that are on my profile were probably . It's a great idea, Secret Santa! I am a lover of heavy AT games, but I'm lacking in quick, light games, so this was a very, very good idea! Can't wait to try it!



So! My third BGG Secret Santa, 3 very strong hits in a row! It's so easy after to spoil your target when you got spoiled yourself

P.S. For those that wonder, I won that Labyrinth game after. US financial victory!

Thank you, Santa! I am now plotting to drag my RPG friends who game in a travelling circus setting over to the house to play our 'untold stories of the circus'!

And after that, break out A Touch of Evil because you also sent me A Touch of Evil: Hero Pack 1!

And after that, some Cardcassonne! Because Meeples are the reason for the season. arrrh

And just to watch the expression on the resource-strategy-game-obsessor, Lords of Vegas, because of the dice! devil

Just got home from picking up the kids from school and what to my wandering eye should appear but a box on my front porch!


Santa warned me yesterday to be on the look out!

I opened it up to find Castle Ravenloft waiting for me inside!

YAY! I've been doing my best to resist buying this one since I put it on my wishlist! It really is the perfect gift - Love the theme, it plays solo and it has a jolly (well he is smiling) man wearing (some) red on the cover along with 8 flying rein...er bats. Talk about holiday themed


Thank you very much Santa!


On a side note I think this is my deepest box - the thing is HUGE.

My Secret Santa was very good to me. I did not get taunted but I did receive not one... not two... but three... games....


If tossing foam peanuts on my wife counts as a game, then I got 4!

1. Kingsburg was a game that I haven't played but think it would be light enough to get several different groups of people to play it. I'm excited to try it out. Considering what's out right now, it's also the big game I was hoping Santa would get me. Great job Santa!


2. Revolution The Palace - This game goes over so well with family and friends that this was a definite "MUST HAVE" I'm glad my secret santa chose it because this would have been purchased on Dec 26th otherwise.


3.Mr. Jack Pocket Edition - Santa went off my wishlist for this little game. I own and like the original Mr. Jack. I'm excited to try this one with my wife.

I didn't think I was this good so I have to say that my secret santa is the best. It's a good thing this came 1 day before I have a 6 hour gaming session. devil

Oh yes!! Oh Yesss!!! My preciouses...

My Secret Santa has outdone himself again this year and event went beyond after thoroughly analysing my profile. Ok it was not hard to notice my HUGE passion for Lovecraft & the Mythos but nevertheless it really was a thoughtful gesture from his part.

Like always as the aftermath of Essen each year, my buying frenzy starts... tracking the promos and novelties and so on. This year i had the idea to stop right when SS would start. That way my pocket will have a break for a while meeple There was a game that i really really wanted to have after playing it 2-3 times recently... and there it was: Betrayal at the house on the hill SS must have telepathic powers this year.

Being a huge FFG fan, i like a lots of thier games and was delighted to learn that a certain game will provide character datas for 3 other FFG games but i always had other priorities before getting this one... well SS took care of it:



What more could i've ask?

Like i wrote at the beginning, SS checked on my profile very thoroughly and sent a nice taunt regarding my Cthulhu passion along with a nice poem or "spell" maybe...devil but had the kind gesture of sending me a Cthulhu dice set that was not on my wishlist!!!

The stars were right again for me this year! Many thx to you SS!!!

Today I got a parcel from UK. Inside there was a nicely wrapped present. I hesitated a little while, but then opened it. My Santa has really surprised me. Even though Puerto Rico is number 1 game here in BGG, i have never thought of buying it and it's not in my wishlist. But it's a good game, so...

Thanks for the surprise!

Edit Dec 30:

Wow, Santa!! Thank you! Today i got

I'm planning to play some WoW the board game on New Year's Eve, but now we'll definitely get Powerboats on table, too laugh

Also, thanks for all the trouble you had to go through for arranging my gift

First things first: Thank you for the Secret Santa Gifts from Thought Hammer.

Secondly, I can only hope to catch the awesomeness that is Doctor Who on Christmas Day. I love me some Doc Who!

Thirdly I have not opened the gifts, but the "gift" receipt has unfortunately spoiled what was inside the gifts. There is the wonderful Wars of the Roses, which I may never have gotten because of the weight of the game. (Both Physical and Metaphorical.) And the Power Grid: Brazil/Spain & Portugal



So Sorry about that. Well for now I am not opening the gifts. I may change my mind or if you give me permission. Thank you very much!

Enjoy the Doctor Who on the Christmas and likewise have a fantastic Geronimo kind of year.

Today I called my dad for some trivial reason and in the background I heard the sound of doorbell. My first thought, of course, was Santa but I never know the way my mom buys stuff this time of year. So I tell him to check the front door and he said there was a box with my name from Funagain! Now to try and make the rest of the work day fly by so I can rush to my parents' house.

After the painful process I rip a box open to find Shadow Hunters and ...
Shadow Hunters has been sitting high on my list, but Munchkin was a sleeper but one Santa plays often. And, to my great delight, my wife sees it and says "Oh, this looks like a game I would actually play." Santa knows his stuff.

Yay, it's December and the Christmas season is upon us.

Today I received a box from Cool Stuff Inc. It contained the King in Yellow and Mille Bornes. Nice stocking stuffers.

Plus there's a larger, gift-wrapped box. I wonder what's inside? Oh yes, and a card with a gift certificate to CSI as well. Most excellent since I always purchase my games from them.

Thank you, Santa!

Hey!

What're you looking at!
mbmbmbmbmb
What should I find after a hard day's teaching, but a small packet from the Royal Mail.

Secret Santa rules! What an excellent way to begin the weekend.

Not only did the package include K2, but also Archaeology and a Decision Dice.

Thank you Secret Santa and Shire Games.

I have been especially looking forward to K2 as I have always thought there should be a proper climbing game out there--and now I have it. The Decision Dice is brilliant. I had not seen it before. I am looking very forward to playing Archaeology.

Merry Christmas to all!

I received this today and I would like to say Thank you very much to my Secret Santa.

I will have a lot of fun learning the new rules and seeing all the expansions.

Received my Secret Santa Gift this week while I was still in bed and the dear girlfriend brought it to me. It was like Christmas Morning and I ripped it apart (the box not the present) and behold, a spanking new and shining copy of A Touch of Evil: The Supernatural Game.

The game was high on my wishlist and I have been reading the rulebook ever since, cannot wait to play it !

Thanks Secret Santa and sorry it took me a few days to add it to the list.

Merry Christmas !

Henrik

I have the best Secret Santa ever. My Santa had a copy of Samarkand: Routes to Riches.

I have been dying to get this game for a while. I came within seconds of buying this one for myself at the Funagain store at BGG.con but was able to restrain myself.

Anyway. Not only did my Secret Santa read my mind about my #1 on my wish list, but he or she also sent me a note saying that another package was on the way. Well, I came home today to find another package on the front porch. Upon opening this package I find another game from my wish list. At least. That's what Santa says it is. I don't know for sure yet, because it's wrapped and I don't do wrapped gifts before Christmas!!!

I'll update later on the contents of the second package but I wanted to put the post out so that my Santa knows how much I appreciate him or her!!!!

The Contents of the second package have now been identified! My Super awesome Secret Santa seemed to think I deserved a copy of Drakon (third edition) Yayy! I've been wanting this game forever too, it's been on my wishlist for like 3 years or so. I just never could bring myself to pull the trigger on this one, but I loves it.

Dear Santa,

Thank you very much! Dominion: Prosperity and The Bottle Imp were very high on my wishlist - I can't wait to try them!

Even though I saw what was in the package you sent, I'm the only one in the house who knows, and the others won't know until they open the presents under the tree...

-- Chris

I have been busily planning my gift for overseas when I get an exciting note from Santa saying my package would arrive soon. But Santa also mentions some "curveballs." So I am am preparing myself for a vintage copy of Baseball Simulator 1.000

Now that the snows have arrived in Michigan we were planning on settling in for a good gaming weekend, maybe a little Small World or Agricola. But minutes before we were going to leave for dinner the FedEx man pulls in, meaning only one thing.



JAVA! New plan ... Play awesome out of print game, I never thought we would get, from a far too generous Santa!

But wait what is this?


Infinite City A bonus game not even on my wishlist! Sweet. I have to thank Santa even more for this. We love trying new games and this one shows our Santa did his homework. What better for people who love Metropolys and Carcassonne. It's a heavy box(also a good sign) has sweet art and it works with 2 players. Music to my ears. And I can think of no higher recommendation than sending something as a Secret Santa gift.

Once again you I have to thank you Santa. Hundreds of hours of enjoyment await us.

And yes Santa the Board Game blog is going, and you are the star of the most recent post. www.AdventuresInBoardGaming.blogspot.com

Update: Now that we have has a chance to play both games. Wow My husband and I love both of these titles and really apprecaite Infinite City for satisfing our tile laying obsession when we don't have time for Java. And Java.... every bit as good as I was wishing for. Great job Santa.
