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.

The advantages of living in Australia are that you get to open presents before the rest of the world.

A very good secret Santa haul for me - 3 games!

I bought Dixit for my neighbours just yesterday, and was thinking I must get a copy for myself.

The Magic Labyrinth will be a perfect xmas holiday fun for my son and I.

Lastly, I didnt know that The Bottle Imp was available in Oz, so that was a nice surprise.

Thanks muchly Secret Santa - - I hope your Santa is as kind to you.

Update: Obligatory photo of son with gifts (and correction of some typos)

My apologies to Secret Santa, for he or she has had to wait a long time for acknowledgement. After a brief taunt, my gifts (Modred and Arcana) arrived a month ago, soon after Secret Santa began. They were wrapped, so I kept them until the last day of Chanukah (which ended a while ago). I'm a Prof, so grading and final papers ensued, followed by an unexpected need to search for a new car. This kept me from posting here. Many thanks for helping fill out my Martin Wallace Treefrog collection. It will hit the table in the new year.

Best wishes for the holidays and a happy new year.

Selamat Hari Natal! I made this post a while back, but given that my gifts came in two types--opened and not--so I decided to just make a second entry.

Santa got me my nation-sake, which is really quite a generous haul! I was totally shocked to receive it as I just figured I'd never get it, also the price tag associated with it is pretty large so I just figured that it was in a bigger box. I was very happy to say the least.

Santa, you are super! Now, I actually want to go on a quest and figure out who you are exactly. This was super cool!

Right on target, Santa! My gift arrived at my place, in Rio de Janeiro, at 5 PM on December 24. And it came all the way from Freiburg, Germany, with a beautiful postcard!

I have to tell you, Santa, that I visited Freiburg years ago (almost 20 years ago, actually) and loved your city. I spent only two days there, but I had a lot of fun and all the bratwursts I could.

Oh, almost forgot to mention. Not only I got The Speicherstadt, but also 6nimmt! Junior for my son, Bruno. He is only two years old now, but I'm raising him to be a happy gamer!

Thank you so much, Santa. I wish you and your family all the best.

I received my package a few weeks ago, as with many targets was a bit confused cause the only packages I was waiting for was from Book Depository and they ship books seperately! Looking closer it dawned on me what it was. I was torn, do I open the box now risking the chance it wasn't wrapped, so I got my boyfriend to check for me.

He opens it, yells it's unwrapped and promises to wrap it for me. For WEEKS when ever I ask him if he had wrapped it yet (so as I could have a look at the shape of the box) he would tell me I was being silly cause I got given an empty box from Santa so why would he wrap that! So I didn't get taunted by Santa instead my boyfriend did that quite happily!

About a week ago I got my first mail from Santa who told me he tried really hard to get me Iron Dragon which is out of print and high up on my wish list but unfortunately the two Korea's had a bit of a falling out at the time dragging his contact away from the computer. So instead he went down one level on my wishlist. I was blown away with the fact that he tried, there was never any expectation that Santa would even try to find Iron Dragon. Santa, I'm trying to get in touch with your contact... I think he's away again ninja

I waited till Christmas Day, even putting up with my boyfriend hiding the gift cause I was wanting to open it as soon as I got up. By the shape of the box I was guessing it was Havana and I was right! I think thats why he was hiding it cause I am reasonably good at guessing by looking at the shape of a box. I'd read a review of it in the SpielBox mag and it looked fun.

I have read the rules, now am waiting till I get back home to try it out with my friends (my boyfriend is not a boardgamer unfortunately and neither is the rest of the family).

Thanks Santa!!

So finally, due to circumstances outlined elsewhere I was able to open my Secret Santa gift!

It deserves an entry and summary of its own:

First out was a note from Secret Santa - Christian (you're dealing with a super sleuth, Secret Santa, so I know there's just 7 SS participants with that first name. So I have a hunch ) - wishing Happy Holidays! Very thoughtful thumbsup



Then apparently a note for the postal workers if my parcel was seized or something, outlining three games not on my wishlist or ballpark; Twilight Imperium, its expansion and a game called Magical Athlete laugh



SOunded interesting so I ventured further - and out came R-Eco from the top of my wishlist! Well researched and selected by my Secret Santa -performance



But there's more! Out came Nuns on the Run - also from the top of my wishlist and a game that I had not found myself in the local gamestore so I'm ecstatic! I have been looking forward for a family game that accommodates 5-8 players for a long time! Fantastic Christmas gift.



Thank you Santa - you're truly the best! You have ensured a great family holiday with these games!



PS: The reason there's a baby in the pictures is that only children receive gifts for Christmas in our family - so she received them and opened them and then I took them from her, thus technically not receiving them.

My Secret Santa is awesome...and s/he left no clues as to who s/he was, even blacking out the return address on the label with permanent marker (and I couldn't make it out). They had taunted me with threats that the "Horrific" weather may stop the package from making it.

Well...

I got the package awhile ago, but they were wrapped, so I waited. I'm glad I did, because I'm not sure when I would have played them before this week, but I'm hoping to get my copy out for the first time next week.

I got... (drumroll ensuing)




I played for the first time a couple months ago and this shot to the top of my wishlist.

But wait....there was more....

Yes, my Secret Santa officially rocks and I am stoked to play these soon.

Most 'good' boys and girls get a visit from Santa, only a precious few are visited by Mrs Claus as far as I'm aware.

Mrs Claus started taunting me early and in retrospect, there were early clues that I'd met her before. As the taunts continued, I slowly caught on and realised that Mrs Claus was actually the one and only

I'd been fortunate enough to meet Mel at Bordercon 09 and have enjoyed catching up with her at other Australian gaming events since then. She and her fiance had travelled to Essen this year as a result of Randy winning the Australian Carcassonne championship and I'm looking forward to catching up at the Australian Games Expo in January to hear the stories.

Identifying Mrs Claus actually increased the taunting. While Mel had originally intented to allow me to open one of the presents prior to Xmas, my girlfriend contacted her and started plotting to torment me some more. All opening rights were removed and it quickly seemed that my entire family knew what I was getting, and was enjoying lettimg me know.

I did get a lovely handmade card that I was able to open before Xmas, which deposited lots of stars and confetti on my table

Finally, Christmas has come and I have been given permission to open my presents. Very fortunate to find two great games, Agricola and Bohnanza - brought all the way back from Essen.



Thanks so much Mel - you were a great Santa.

Holy crap night!

I openened my Secret Santa packet on Christmas Eve and what did I find?
Not one, not two but three great games:

51st State
Thunderstone
Battles of Westeros

WOW!
I'm utterly amazed and even more ashamed because I got three games and only sent one myself modest

But beware! This uncalled escalation of generosity will have grim consequences for my target in next year's Secret Santa".
Expect nothing less than three games as well!

My Santa items arrived several weeks ago - sorry for not posting earlier, Santa! However, I didn't open 'em until Xmas eve. Three items awaited. I knew one was a board game, suspected a smaller one was a card game, and had no clue on the middle one.

The board game was, of course, High Frontier.

That map had sold me on the game - can't wait to give it a try!

The small package was a card game - Pocket Battles: Celts vs. Romans

Wow, two games! Thanks Santa! But there was one more package…

Was it a coloring book with crayons? Nope, it was the High Frontier Expansion!


Ah ha! The deck wrapped up on the map threw me off.

Thanks so much, Santa! Three items is above an beyond - I hope to get 'em to the table soon. Happy Holidays to you! thumbsup

Í got my package previous week, but wanted to wait until christmaseve. I opened the box and found a short letter from Santa and two nicely wrapped presents.

The first one I opened was "Troyes". Great! I couldn't get a copy of this one on Spiel this year, because it was sold out. After reading some good reviews I really wanted to play this game. Thank you, santa!

The next one was a bigger box. After taking of the wrappingpaper I found "Grand Cru". Wow! Another great game. My brother in law (with who I play a lot of games) make a wine-trip every year with his students. After telling him I got this game... he told me he'd know which game we should play on christmasday!

Thank you very much secret santa! Have a great christmas yourself (and the ones you love).

Thank you very much Secret Santa!

I received a package on the 22nd from an Icelandic game store called Spilavinir. Inside the package was a gift-wrapped game that I put under the christmas tree and which I opened on Christmas Eve as is the custom in Iceland!

The game inside was Power Grid, a much wanted game of mine, can't wait to get it to the table (if I can convince my friends to play a game with such an interesting cover and theme...!) .

Thanks again Santa!

My secret Santa was full of awesome this year.

I got a taunt in early December to expect a package, and I waited and waited. I eventually got another taunt early this week stating that one of the items was out of stock and holding up the gift. So my Santa got the item replaced with a brand new item that just came out this week: Thunderstone: Doomgate Legion. Also included in my very generous Santa gift set was a copy of Descent: Journeys in the Dark – Quest Compendium – Volume One !!

Very excited to try all these out!!!


Thank you Santa!

Got my gift in the mail WEEKs ago, and it's been sitting around taunting me ever since. I was strong and waited till Xmas day, and I couldn't be more pleased! This was very near the top of my list, and another high want was in the box as well.



We played a quick game of Alchemy this afternoon and very much enjoyed it. Will try to get a chance to read the rules for Endeavor and play tonight. And with our epic morning game of 'Gric, it looks to be a very cardboard Christmas!



Thanks Santa, where ever you are! And Happy Holidays to everyone!

Thank You, Santa!

I've been wanting this one for a long, long time, and it finally has a home on my shelves.

I also received your taunt from the Santa messaging, but since I don't know a word of German other than "Gesundheit," have no idea what you wrote.

Thank You again. What a great gift!

The package arrived exactly one week before Christmas, and has been sitting under the tree until this morning. It took an extreme act of willpower to wait until today to open it.

Thank you Santa! I couldn't be happier. Lords of Vegas was one of the most recent additions to my wishlist, and I can't wait to get it to the table.

Merry Christmas!

Massive thanks to my Secret Santa, who managed to get me 7 Wonders AND 51st State in time for Christmas. Two games I really wanted that I just cannot wait to get to the table. Unfortunately I've been travelling about for Christmas and couldn't bring them with me.

Roll on Tuesday!

Thanks Santa!

1075. Board Game: Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 - ? [Average Rating:7.61 Overall Rank:208]

My Secret Santa was very generous to me this year. He brought me lots of Christmas cheer with his fun messages. We had to suffer through an elf strike, and I almost sold my soul to get on the naughty list so that the naughty list elf union would make me a nice present. Everything worked itself out though, and I got a very nice gift (or 7) from my Santa.

The first thing I pulled out of the box was a copy of No Thanks!. This was a nice stocking stuffer that Santa picked out that wasn't on my list. Unfortunately my girlfriend the south pole elf didn't get the memo and she got me a copy as well! It's all fine though, because we're going to give a copy to a good friend of ours, to spread the terrible reign of Santa's Christmas cheer even further.


Next up was a copy of The Bottle Imp. Very cool! Another selection from off the list. I played this one this year at KingCon in Kingston, Ontario. I was definitely very intrigued, and am happy to have the chance to play more of it.


Next up was a game pack of Pirates of the Spanish Main. This should be fun. I don't know much about it, but I'm sure there will be much talking like a pirate in my future. I have a feeling that Santa was going off of my interest in Merchants & Marauders.


Next I pulled out a bag of 100 little plastic baggies. This will prove most useful! I don't know why I've never bought these for myself...Don't have a picture for this one

Next was Mr. Jack Extension. This will be a great one to play with my Dad. Mr. Jack is one of our favorites.


Then I pulled out the two biggies. I didn't know which of these to make the geeklist item, because they're both such great choices.

First I pulled out Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 - ?. This will be great. Twilight Struggle is one of my favorites. And I've been itching to try this one. The solitaire will prove a great addition for me since I'll be spending the next 4 months in Quebec City.


Last I pulled out Dungeon Lords. This is a great game, and Vlaada is probably my favorite designer. This will be a great one to show my friends, and one that I've wanted for a while.


Thanks so much Santa. I am once again very touched by your generosity. These gifts will make me, my friends and my family very happy.

Happy Holidays,
Joey
