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.

My Santa taunted me well in November, and I had a feeling I was going to be getting something zombie-themed, but when Christmas came and went without a package from SS, I worried perhaps zombies had eaten the reindeer.

I knew I didn't have a deadbeat (no pun intended) santa, but when Octavian requested info on folks who didn't receive gifts, I let him know something had gone awry.

Before you know it, I had a note from my SS saying that there was an inventory problem with the first store he tried and he switched the order.

Today, I received that order, and I was thrilled to see not only Zombie State, but also:



It's gonna be a shamblin' good time at Game Day this weekend.

Thanks, Santa. I never stopped believin!

I was surprised to see a box at home today that was completely wrapped in what appeared to be duct tape. My SS thought he had a sense of humor but, as it turns out, he was psychic because that tape was the only thing that protected the box from the deluge of rain today.

Thanks to my SS!

Santa arrived today. I am so happy with my package.

I got Macao.

But wait there's more! Santa also included Small World: Be Not Afraid... and Small World: Tales and Legends! EEE! My Smallworld is complete since I recently bought the Necromancer Island expansion when DOW sent it out for S/H.

Coolstuff also included a coupon. Hmmm. What to spend it on?

Thank you Santa! I got everything just in time to pimp it for Game Fest here in Atlanta!

After a looong wait, today when I picked up the package I had a bit of a surprise: Santa sent me the gift in his bag! laugh





Inside the bag there was a box (a bit smashed - poor box had a rough time during its almost one month journey )








And inside the box I found not one but TWO of my most wanted games:

Sylla - one of the oldest items in my wishlist, a game that I was sniffing for a long time, but for various reasons I couldn't get my hands on.

and

Mousquetaires du Roy - great game with a theme that I love cause it reminds me of my childhood.

Santa, you got it so right with Ystari! I like a lot Assyria and I had some of my greatest gaming moments so far with Amyitis, so these two are just PERFECT!






Now, those French elves that shipped the gift slipped a note with a name, so Secret Santa is not so secret anymore and I'm almost sure I know who he is:

Even though the name on the note was of

A parcel arrived for me today and I was thrilled when I opened it to see a copy of Jamaica. This was a great choice by Santa as it's a game I've had my eye on for a while but have never quite got to the stage of pulling the trigger to order it.

I'm really looking forward to trying it. Thanks very much to my Secret Santa and I hope he received as fantastic a present as I did.

My secret Santa gifts arrived from Malaysia exactly 1 day after I had Geekmailed SecretSantaAdmin to lament about my not having received something ... apparently, one of the things I received this year was another good lesson on patience.

Santa was extremely generous to me. Besides Rabbit Hunt (which I have already enjoyed played with my kids), the box from the other side of the world also contained ...

Fire Bulls


Leapfrog


A wooden Xiangqi set


Plus a copy of "Formula1 Fever" -- an F1 racing game by SHAUN equest Games -- which isn't listed here on BGG.

Thank you BGGSS!!

Santa was prompt and generous. I've been rude for not posting this much earlier. Thanks Santa! I'll be more polite next year!

A few days before Christmas Santa's package arrived. I decided to be responsible and wait until Christmas to open it. An hour later my kids came home and we ripped it open!

Santa brought Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage and No Thanks!.

Hannibal has long been on my want list. I've never played it, but after 11 years of Euro games, I've been wanting to go back to some longer 2 player games.

I can't wait to try it. One of my gaming buddies was over the other day and it was the first thing that caught his eye. I think it'll be on the table soon.

No Thanks was not on my list, so I'm guessing it must be one of Santa's favorites. I look forward to trying it with my kids.

When I opened the parcel I was surprise and then I was dancing something like a jig in complete silence, because I can't shout and cry (it was early morning). Yes! It was the Most Wanted Game !

THANK YOU SANTA

WOW! Another gift?!surprise

I have already received a nice gift a while ago: Item for Geeklist "2010 Edition of Look What My Secret Santa sent me..."

Santa was VERY generous and gave me a second one!laugh

Actually, I was given 3 items from my must have wishlist, and a fourth item, not from the wishlist.

And the nice thing about this "not from the wishlist" gift is, since this game is still away from BGG spotlights, surely no one in my gaming group has it, and it will be a new experience for everyone!

Thanks Santa!

I am told the Reindeer went on strike or didn't like the Southern Hemisphere weather or something meeple

Anyway USPS lie when they say they will email you tracking updates, they don't. Luckily I despaired at the lack of contact and checked manually the day it looked like it left Australian customs. The public holiday for Aldie's birthday meant a slight delay getting to the post office, but Melissa got there today and ta da - a very nice Martin Wallace (which makes up for not being able to get up to Canberra last week and catching up with Martin in person!).

Thanks Secret Santa!

The Singapore store - Board Game Lifestyle just delivered Le Havre & Fairy Tale yesterday. Yeah, my SS 2010 gifts finally arrived!




Santa had geekmail-ed me before Christmas to say that he had ordered Le Havre but it was out of stock. The store offered to let him get something else. Santa wanted to get Tobago for me but after much consideration, we decided to wait for Le Havre to be re-stocked cos it comes highly recommended by Santa and it is also one of his favorite games. Moreover we already have the Le Havre: Le Grand Hameau expansion so Le Havre would be prefect.

The long wait of about a month and a half was worth it when the store finally contacted us & delivered yesterday.

We love Agricola and Le Havre would be a great addition to our collection as it would be on-par as one of the games which require deeper strategies. We have played Fairy Tale once before.....probably we didn't quite understand the game so it doesn't come under our "To Buy" radar. Will learn to enjoy Fairy Tale now that we have our own copy.

Thanks very much for the wonderful gifts, Santa.

Wishing you & your family a wonderful 2011.

Cheers,
meepleMichellemeeple

I'd like to share my Secret Santa experience!

I got the present this Monday and was really amazed by Santa's generousity! I got 3 very good games and 1 expansion for one of my favorite games.

Special thanks from my son - he was delighted to punch out lots of components of these great games.



Here are the games:



Fearsome Floors, Dungeon Lords, Steam and Power Grid Russia/Japan!

I am planning to play Steam and the Russian map with Grandma anytime soon. "Monster games" will be pleasing my non-family gaming crowd. I am a big fan of the horror genre. Fearsome Floors and Dungeon Lords seem to have a nice blend of horror and comedy -- looking forward to play them. Hopefully, I'll try FF with my wife as well.

Thanks again from me and my family. To those ones who still have not received your gift: sometimes the wait is very well worth it. You may be treated to something special, just like me.

The Secret Santa was not too much secret, and I would like to share this cool geek's name with you:

So I had to wait a little while for Santa to make my delivery.

At first, I thought I might have just been a snafu in the original delivery. Santa had teased me about a week before Christmas, and I was out of town the week after Christmas. My neighbors kept an eye out on our front porch for any packages, but they had nothing. It was entirely possible in my mind that notice of a delivery notice blew away in the New Years blizzard that we had. As time went on, I realized that it was more likely that nothing was going to come any time soon.

So, now I get a late Christmas/early birthday present! A non-Geek friend of mine really loves this game, and I'm convinced my wife (who refuses to play any hard core strategy games I have) will like it as well. Thanks Santa!

My secret santa has been very patient with me! Thanks.

I received his box on schedule and rushed to open it. Inside I found two games - both on my wishlist.

This game, however, has been confounding and the source of my late posting. I have only just gotten it out on the table.

The wait was worth it! We had such a good time with it. We only played one round with it, and we probably would have played a second...but we were running two tables and the second table was almost done.

We got Haunt #4 - The spider. Unfortunately, our weakest player was stuck in the web in the attack and our strongest player was down in the basement. So, we had to wait for a way to put the two people together. Meanwhile, the spider simply bid his time...and chased one of us around. For a powerful spider, he was quite a wuss - constatntly rolling low might attacks against us.

Needless to say, the eggs hatched and that was that.

I love the creepiness of this game and hope to get it out more. The game did have the warping tile issues that everyone else has reported, but that did not effect the enjoyment of the game.

Thanks Santa!

This is the other game my Secret Santa got me! Again, off my wishlist.

This game brought me immediate cheap thrills that had nothing to do with the game. I spent about two hours self-absorbed sorting the cards and putting them into the very nice holding area that comes with the box.

I was able to get my wife to play one round of this with me and I got a solo play in. Both proved to be a good time and this was a positive expansion for this game.

My next goal is to enhance my son's gaming skills. He is 7 and loves to game with me. Most of my games are a bit too much for him, but I tested him on Dominion - son of a gun beat me! So, after a few more rounds of that, I will share this game with him.

Thanks Santa! Your gifts were awesome - even though it took a bit to get them onto the table.

Wow...I feel really bad about being so busy, but now that work is finally in a quasi-normal state, I have time...

I got my gift in early December. I got Merchants of Amsterdam, which is a game I've dearly wanted to play. In what must have been a record, it got to the table the following evening, and is just about the only game I played in December.

I also got...
