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.

Thanks Santa for this great gift, but as you know, i've got a problem now! I have to buy all these nice pre-painted minis for the game

If I only knew who you were, then I could send you a message saying thanks for the great gift.

Looking foreward to be a part of the great game/experience next year.

Merry Christmas to all of you.

Santa went all out this year. I got the latest (and final cry) Heroscape expansion, another expansion for one of my favorite games (Power Grid: Russia & Japan), and a Schacht 2-player game I had enjoyed when I played a friend's copy a while back (Architekton), not to mention some really yummy homemade caramels. Thank you so much, Santa!

Santa writes: Santa likes the character with all the red figures! That one likes to spread "joy" across the land, just like I do!

I wonder if Chanta (from RPGG) has taken care of some of the BGG presents, though I don't think he'd pick the red figures. Better not dwell on such things...

Thank you, Santa!

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!!!

My santa asked me to wait for christmas and was it worth the wait or what?!?!?


I am flipping around and doing cartwheels upon finding out what was in the huge box (that everyone in BGG-chat has heard about many many times).

It contained not only my most wanted game of Twilight Imperium, but ALSO the shattered empire expansion.

AND on top of that there was also a little extra in the form of Magical Athlete

The funny thing is that I played magical athlete just few weeks ago and really really liked it, so it would have appeared on my wishlist sooner or later

I have just few words for the possibly most generous Santa ever,

thankthankthankthankthankthankyou!!!

*me is so happy*

The postman finally made it to our door. We've been really isolated by the snow here in merthyr. I had to walk the few miles to work nearly every day. I was hoping Postie would make it, but not holding my breath.

A big thankyou to Santa. He taunted me spectacularly as an Elf in charge of distribution called Blodeuwedd Gwythyr Talfyrn. and later as Santa himself.

Thankyou again, and a Merry Christmas from the real Father ChrisMorse

In keeping with the season, my secret santa gift arrived yesterday and I will NOT be opening until Christmas morning. What a great thing to come home from work to!

Thank you Secret Santa, I am very VERY excited!

Update:

WOW! How could I have possibly known I had the one, the only, the BEST secret santa in all of Board Game Geek worldom? I received a moderate sized postal (that had some shake to it ) but did not open it until this morning. How long did I stare in disbelief at not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 perfectly wrapped gifts arranged nicely in this box? About 5 minutes.

It started with a small package


A game I have not had a chance to play but was one of the top "I have to try" games!

A slightly larger game was next

Not only one of my favorite games, but the PC version so I can finally play by myself! My Santa pays attention!

Next was

A Knizia game that my 5 year old son was very excited to break into! It seems simple enough I should be able to teach him it, if he ever puts down the star wars figures he got from Santa.

If that wasn't enough, there were two larger boxes at the bottom:


A great game I played at GenCon this year that also has a 1 person variant!

And the last, best, unparalleled gift I got to open was


My current #1 and certainly a game I will enjoy for years to come.

Again I say WOW

Thank you Secret Santa. I hope you had just as merry of a Christmas that you gave me. You are a paragon.

WooHoo! My Secret Santa said I was on the permanent naughty list.. I guess that turns out to be the list that gets the best presents, because this is an awesome present!

The timing was impeccable, too. I saw the notice for a parcel from the post office on Dec 23 after I got home from work. So I put my coat back on and eagerly walked the 4 blocks through the rain (we rarely get a white Christmas in this part of Canada - it's usually wet.) to pick it up from the post office. Of course I could have waited the -2- days till Christmas to open it... but the suspense was much too high! shake

Santa's elves at the German Boardgame Company in Kitchener Ontario did a great job gift-wrapping the gift, and even included a hand-written card. Very nice extras...

Thank you so much, Secret Santa!

When my package arrived a few weeks ago, my wife took the liberty of wrapping the gifts and then told me, I was not allowed to open until Christmas Eve.

Christmas eve finally rolls around and I get to open my gifts.

First up was M44: Winter Wars. My second gift was a newer edition to the wishlist, Neuroshima Hex.

So if these do not hit the table tonite, they will see some time Christmas Day.

Thank You Secret Santa! Your generosity is great!

My Secret Santa sent me the Tikal. I regard the BGG Secret Santa as chance to get a game which I would never acquire myself at all. I participate in SS already for the third time. And all three times I get ability to try the new game which in the opposite case would never find the way on my table. Thanks, Santa! I will try this game necessarily as soon as possibility is given.



But this is not all. In the package was a little box with the Bang! (2nd edition) This is a very fun game and we sometimes play in my copy of Bang! The Bullet. I have not yet invented how I should use the Bang! received from Santa. Probably if one may add it to the Bullet and may be played with 10-12 of us? I don't know.



And still this is not all. In the package there were crumpled Italian newspapers where we found the article about Putin and Medvedev. Our project manager immediately took newspapers to use they for adjustment of recognition of Italian language in ABBYY FineReader.



Thanks, Secret Santa!

It came! It finally came!

I had just about given up hope of getting my Secret Santa gift in time for Christmas. But I should have known Santa had perfect timing! Not only did I get Jaipur, which was one of my most wanted wishlist items, I also got:

Forbidden Island - I have been wanting to try Forbidden Island for a while, but everyone around here seems to have Pandemic. I think the theme in Forbidden Island is more fun. Who wouldn't love to find The Crystal of Fire???

AND

Diplomacy - devil It wasn't on my wishlist, but I think this is an awesome game. I played this once on dipbounced a few years ago and loved every minute. I really hope I can play this in person some day.

And now for a few gratuitous cat photos:

Santa sent our postal carrier my way today, and dropped off a well prepared bundle of goodies for me. We were waiting for family to arrive at the time, so my wife helped me open the package. The first item that was pulled from the well packed box was a tile bag filled with rubber bands and plastic storage bags, which I had been running low on. The second item pulled out was a stocking filled with goodies... candy bars, gummies and other various items that have already been sampled. I then pulled two wrapped presents from the box and opened the smaller one first, which contained Trivial Pursuit Chocolate Edition. This will be great, as the first guests that are due to arrive are big chocolate fans, and we will be able to break the seal on this one shortly. The last present was then unwrapped to reveal Founding Fathers. I've only had the chance to play this game once, but it was enough to make me realize that this was a must have game for my collection.

Warm holiday wishes to my Secret Santa (and everyone else), and thank you for the well thought out package.

My Secret Santa, er, Tomte sent me a Meeple-themed present this year.

One box contained Carcassonne: Wheel of Fortune, one of the few Carc expansions I didn't actually have. Another envelope contained a silver Meepile (which I can use the extra meeples in wheel of fortune for if I combine the tiles with the base game) and a third envelope contained a pair of metal meeple keyrings from Jofasa - one in red and one in blue.

Now I get to see if I can get wheel of fortune into the main carc box (don't think that I can - maybe if take the catapult out though...) and am planning to have a big Carcassonne game on New Year's Eve!

Thank you, Tomte! This is a wonderful gift!

Package arrived from my Secret Santa. I havn't heard from Santa until late December, and despite a small mix up, I have gotten my gift before Christmas day. (I don't have the game physically with me right now, since I'm back home for Christmas, but my friend who's house-sitting for me picked it up and confirmed it for me.)

Thank you for the awesome gift, and the effort you have put in Secret Santa!

Edit: I'll edit this again when I get home and see if there are any thing in the package also.

I opened up my parcels that had been waiting for me since the begining of December. Both parcels were beautiful wrapped in dark blue paper with a broad yellow silk ribbon around. Thank you Amazon, very luxery.

The first gift was Stone Age and in the second package I found



Both games had been on my radar for a long time, My daugher immediatly asked "can we play it tomorrow" And my wife agreed to join when I explained Dixit to her.

Could a christmas be better.
Thank you my Secret Friend

Added 25 dec
And YES; YES YES my wife played Dixit and liked it.

1050. Board Game: Brass [Average Rating:8.03 Overall Rank:15]

This is actually my second post on this list, but i found that appropriate because now I actually got the permission (from my significant other) to open the presents. The original post can be found here

My Santa must have thought that I've been really, really good.

First item:

Brass

A game that I wanted bad. This has been on my wishlist ever since I had my first chance to play it. Unfortunately no one in our regional guild owned Brass. Thank you Santa for sending the missing link. This will be enjoyed not only by me, but all the geeks in Rauma, Finland.

Second item:

Memoir '44: Campaign Book Volume 1

Another must get item. Last summer I borrowed this book of campaigns from a fellow geek living in the next town. We played through the first short campaign and thought that Memoir '44 is definitely at its best in campaign mode. After that I had to return the book back to its owner. We've been longing to get back onto the battle field ever since. I can already hear the cannons roaring.

Third item:

Masters of Venice

A total surprise. I've never heard of this game before and must have surely missed it if it hadn't been for Secret Santa. Very interesting.

Fourth item:
A game for my godson. I told my Secret Santa that I have a godson. And what does Santa do? Sends a present for my little fella also. He's only 11 at the moment but I'm training him to become a decent geek. This game will surely help in achieving that goal.

I haven't delivered the present yet (sorry Santa) but I will do it after Christmas when I go to visit him. I will take a picture of the moment when he receives a surprise present from my Secret Santa.

Fifth item:
Energy City (apparently a bonus game from the elves). Very interesting also. This one cannot be even found in BGG.
