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.

Follow me if you want to play wargames!

So, I had previously written here about what I had thought was an instance where two different Secret Santas sent me the same gift. It turns out that it was a case of an order being double shipped to me.

Back in December 16, I received a GeekMail from a dummy account:

Partly wrote:
Dear Board Game Geek Member/Gamer who has been very good this year:



You may not know this but Santa works retail. This means that once Thanksgiving hits, life is very, very stressful.

Then, like the year Santa first appreciated that wonderful bulb-nosed reindeer, Rudolph, a storm blew in and caused closures and delays in all of Santa's orders and deliveries. It turns out that once it hits -20, even Rudolph's shiny nose doesn't work!

But don't fear, Deserving Gamer! Santa hasn't forgotten about you. Due to fore-thought and an addiction to Farmville, Mrs. Santa had high-speed internet installed and she has kept him up-to-date on how deserving and good you have been this year.

So, be glad and rejoice! The snow has been cleared, the heaters are working and the gifts are on their way.

Santa is truly sorry for the delay and he hopes that you will be able to play with *all* your new toys during the Holiday!

Stay warm and don't let the elves ambush you in a snowball fight!

Elf #27, in charge of the Board Game Geek Secret Santa Delivery


This account has not been used since this Geekmail message was sent. So, I figured it was a prank message.

It turns out that it was a rogue message from someone who either didn't know about or chose not to use the Santa account.

Yesterday, I went to check my mail for the last time of the year. Since I have not been at work for the past 2 weeks, I hadn't had a chance to check it since before Christmas. There, was a package which surprised me. A Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box.

Now, the return address was labelled "Secret Santa Headquarters." But the street address is a legitimate one. A Gamer Search here revealed but a single member within that ZIP Code. So, a presumable thank you goes to:

On top was a lovely letter, adorned with snowmen and reindeer:

Quote:
Dear Happy Gamer!

Welcome to the New Year. Santa is sorry for the delay in getting you the gifts you so richly deserve!

In addition to what was on your "wish list", you will find some "print and play games" on a zip drive. Santa has enclosed these goodies because he loves print and play games and there are a few things that Santa even finds hard to find!


I pull out the drive, and have looked over the files.

Continuing with the letter:

Quote:
On the Ho-Ho-Ho Zip Drive you will find the following folders:

B-17 QOTS: B-17: Queen of the Skies
This is a wonderful solo-game simulation of the B-17 bombing runs of Europe during WWII. This game is out of print and Santa lost his version many years ago when Santa's brother borrowed it (Santa's brother is still not off the naughty list!) After much Internet searching, Santa has located all the parts to the game (and some cool variants). They are all in this folder ready for you to print out and play.


Well, I still have MY Avalon Hill copy of this great solo wargame, so I won't have much of a need to print out the game itself, except to perhaps replace missing parts. But there are some solid variants here, such as a 9th/12th AF variant (bombing in North Africa) from a fanzine called The Boardgamer, bomber-hunting fighers, and the variant bomber configurations for Lancaster and B-24 bombers.

Going on:

Quote:
Carrier: Carrier
Another solo game that Santa found. Due to the craziness of this time of year, Santa hasn't been able to print off or play this game, but he's heard really gret things about it. Perfect to play when all the elves are gone on vacation in January and Santa's in the shop all alone!


I do own a true copy of Carrier. Santa, it IS a good game. I'll archive this, again in case I lose parts.

Continuing:

Quote:
Formula de: Tracks for Formula de
There's nothing Santa likes better than a good racing game and Formula de is [sic] that. The best thing about it is that you can race on any track around the world. Santa scoured the Internet and has found tracks for some of the best racing in the world. Just print and you can travel the circuit with the pros!


This folder has 10 homemade tracks from various sources, plus some play aids, dashboard variants, even a cut and paste podium display. I might put that together for the league I'm in.

Yet more:

Quote:
Rulerball Rülerball
This print and play two-player game is based on the game in the classic James Caan movie "Rollerball". All the excitement, none of the bodily harm. Still lots of fun to play.


I'd peeked at this one. And, clearly, Santa peeked at my profile as Rollerball is a personal favorite film.

Quote:
Smash Monster Rampage: Smash Monster Rampage!
This fun little game lets you fight off a giant monster as it rampages through your city. Completely 3-D it is an awesome and fun play!


I can either print and assemble, or reach into my Monsterpocalypse collection and "upscale" the game?

Quote:
Tokyo Express: Tokyo Express
A solo war game, dealing with the US invastion of Japan. Once you rule the skies of Europe with B-17, it's time to turn your attention to the Pacific!


Actually, the game's on the Solomon's Campaign. It has been one I've been searching for. And I'll continue looking for an original copy. But I may get around to printing this one out in the meantime.

Quote:
Warheads: Warheads
This two-player game combines miniatures and role-playing elements. This folder has Issues one and two, plus additional printouts to help play the game. Miniatures sold separately *grin*


I'll have to look this one over. It's not up my alley, but that doesn't mean I won't like it.

The letter concludes:

Quote:
Santa really hopes you enjoy your gifts and that you have a wonder Holiday Season!

HO-HO-HO and keep on gaming!


That's an impressive start. But there's yet more inside the box.

Next to the flash drive is a small wrapped gift. Opening it up I find a copy of Munchkin: Waiting For Santa. Oddly, I had that marked as already in my collection. But I figure I can swap it at one of my FLGS's for a copy of Santa's Revenge.

A CD case had a sticky note attached:

Quote:
Not only do the Claus love Christmas, they also love Christmas music. So they sent along a copy of their 2010 Christmas Collection. It has some of their favorite music on it!


A wide range of music, old and new. Not my personal first choices, but I don't see anything that I'd necessarily tune out, either. As long as it doesn't have any from that internet group that's been played to death on the Hyundai commercials, I'm okay with it.

Beneath that is a stack of paper with another sticky note:

Quote:
Santa had some extra ink and paper - so here are a few extra Formula de tracks! Enjoy


7 of the 10 tracks in the flash drive have been printed out for me. Now, I have fewer excuses to not finish trimming, aliging and mounting these.

Finally, the big package filling up most of the box. Removing the gift wrap, I find a copy of Formula D, replacing the one I had lost some time back. The Formula D: Catalina Santana Promo was attached to the shrinkwrap.

Thanks a lot, Santa. You put a lot of thought into this, and it's greatly appreciated.

Left town Christmas Eve day to visit relatives in Arizona. There were a few gifts left behind as too large to pack and bring back. The package from Secret Santa was one of those.

After waking up to a blizzard in the Grand Canyon, being stuck in Flagstaff with no hotel after both interstates closed and 2 vary hairy drives when they finally did open, I am finally home. Ah, coastal California. Where my wife complains if it drops below 55.

Anyway, the Secret Santa gift - I torn into it to find Founding Fathers. I am so very excited to receive this. It was on my really short list all year. My wife (who is a polisci major (and doesn't really play games)) has even expressed an interest in this one, so that's an even bigger win.

Add this to the BBQ sauce I received earlier, (which is almost gone now), I can proclaim to the world that I have The Best Secret Santa Ever! Many, many thanks Secret Santa. I only hop my target is half as excited/pleased as I am.

My secret Santa actually sent my gifts out very quickly. I think I received them about a week after the targets were assigned, but I waited for Christmas to open them.

I was excited and very pleased to unwrap the Tales of the Arabian Nights game. This was at the top of my wishlist and I can't wait to play it.

But that wasn't all that Santa sent......

Santa also sent me
Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm

Again this was a game I was very happy to get. So thank you thank you secret Santa!!

Amazing! Not so much Secret Santa as
sauron Psychic Santa! sauron


I had so much stuff on my wish list and yet Santa managed to pick out the two items which I was secretly hoping for the most. Not only Battlestar Galactica but also

Witch's Brew


AND he threw in

Ice Flow


too - which looks as if it will be great fun for the family - my daughters are all agog at the polar bear meeples.

Thank you Santa. I can't tell you how much this cheered me up. We kept the presents all wrapped up and mysterious under the tree with the intention of only opening them on the day we were due to fly out to visit my mother for Christmas. Well at midnight the night before we were due to fly I checked my flight status and found the flight had been cancelled due to heavy snow - and there was no one answering the phone at the airline's call centre. Disaster. Panic. What to do? Well obviously I opened the Secret Santa packages. I was instantly cheered. Then the next morning we got our flights re-routed and flew out for our fantastic holiday - needless to say most of our baggage space was taken up with board games, with the Secret Santa parcels taking pride of place.

Witch's Brew was a huge hit with my 7 year old daughter, and Battlestar Galactica went down a storm. Our first game - a learning experience which went on for 6 hours (minus dinner) was actually won by my 6 year old sneaky cylon daughter. The girls were up playing it way beyond their bedtime and the next morning they came running downstairs with dark shadows under their eyes. But the first thing they said was "Can we play Battlestar Galactica again today?" (Luckily I now have the rule variant for a shorter game.)

The whole Secret Santa experience left me all warm and glowy - Thanks to everyone on the geek who made this possible and took part, and thanks to my Secret Psychic Santa for such huge generosity and perfect choices.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Finally getting around to saying thank you to my awesome Secret Santa who not only got me Dominion: Prosperity (which ROCKS) but also Can't Stop,a great classic that I've wanted for quite some time. We could even convince my non-gamer mom to play it, and she declared it to be quite fun and "not so difficult after all"

Again, thank you so much for the great presents, dear Secret Santa - this has been my first time participating and I will certainly do so the next time around!

A huge thank you to my Secret Santa who sent me my presents in a brown box with Paul Lister's name on. cool

I did try to send you an email letting you know I had received it but because I'm new to all this I have a feeling you may not have seen it.

Anyway, I asked my husband to check the contents were wrapped so that I didn't see them ahead of time, and much to the dismay of my children managed to wait until Christmas Day before opening them. I say them because there were two boxes beautifully wrapped and one of the boxes seemed to have something else inside the wrapping too.

On Christmas morning I was so excited to open my presents from you. I opened the first one and was delighted to see that you had sent me Dominion. Thank you so, so much. And for the additional packs of cards.

My other present from you was Lost Cities and I can't wait to play both of them. Sadly I haven't had a chance as yet but I'm having a games day with some friends in a week or two and we will be playing them then.

Thank you for your generosity, thoughtfulness and efficiency. I hope Santa was good to you and you had a great time with your family and friends. All the best for 2011.

Cool looking game. I hope to set it up soon. Santa ran a bit late, but I am glad to wait for this.

A sweetener was thrown in too!

I am pretty sure this was my "general" secret Santa, not my wargame one, though sorry if I got it backwards.

I received my gift from Santa at the early part of December, but like a good, diligent boy, waited until Christmas to open it. I actually opened the box around December 22, hoping that the contents might not be wrapped, but, alas, they were. They were given the proper attention upon return from Christmas at my parents' house (oh, how they wanted to see their grandson) last week.

I am so excited to receive Long Shot, as that was high on my wishlist and should be a fun experience with my game group.

Small World: Be Not Afraid...
 


I also received the Small World expansion Be Not Afraid... I've already logged a play with it and it adds even more (beyond a storage tray) to a good game.

Thanks Santa!

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of 7 Wonders! But wait, there is more!

I also received a copy of Manhattan!

Manhattan


And that is not it!

I also received the 7 Wonders expansion!

7 Wonders: Manneken Pis


This arrive literally minutes before I was going to order it myself!

Finally, I also received sleeves from Mayday games!


Two games directly from my wishlist, including the one game I wanted most! One game of the year winner and another that I consider the favorite to win this year. Who could ask for more!?!?!


What a great and thoughtful Christmas thanks to my Secret Santa!

Hope everyone had a great and happy holiday season!

I wish I could always pay my debts, but since Santa is secret s/he will have to settle for a Hear Me Roar from my cat Jo.

*rawr*

Stark suxors!

And because somebody apparently didn't read the "don't be too generous or you may cause an imbalance in the Gaming Force" directions, I also got This Awesomeness.



I asked Jo to rate this game as well but he just kinda smacked his head against it. So I'll just call it elebenty out of ten.

I was worried Santa had deserted me, but he sent me mail the day after Christmas letting me know that the littlest Elf, FedExzen, had been delayed. Arrived at the office today and found this waiting for me. Thanks, Santa, you're the best!
