Just added a new Secret Santa Poll . Head over to [geekurl=http://boardgamegeek.com/article/7924278#7924278]Week 2 Secret Santa Poll[/geekurl] to see how everyone is faring thus far in this year's event. And of course, add your votes!

ALRIGHT! It is time once again for the annual Secret Santa List, this time the 2011 Edition. For those of you who are new to the 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. No placeholder entries, please.

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.

Last year there were 1,437 unique entries spread over 58 pages. I'm curious to see how huge it grows this year. As a tip - if you go looking through the previous years' lists, please be mindful of which year you are actually posting your gift to. There have been multiple occasions of people posting a gift from the current year on the previous year's list. That would likely diminish the chances of your Secret Santa getting around to seeing it...

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:

"2010 List"

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"

does a superb job using the data from this list to create his great statistical look at the hottest gifts of the season. This year's version of his list is located at:

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2011


Last year: Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2010

Want some for your stocking? Simon also runs a Secret Santa Sweepstakes which is located at:

This year: 2011 Secret Santa Sweepstakes

Last year: 2010 Secret Santa Sweepstakes


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.


If you would like to taunt your "target" while maintaining your secret identity, you can do so using the Santa logon. Just log yourself off and close any BGG windows (if you don't you take the chance of being discovered if the new username doesn't take) and log on using this info:

Username: santa
Password: password



I hope you have a terrific holiday season and enjoy the list!

Dear Santa, Дорогой Санта

Sorry Santa, I had to open the bag at customs during pickup so I've spoiled the Christmas surprise a few days earlier. Wow!!! I have for over two hours now a big smile on my face and it's still there I don't know what I did this year to get such awesome gifts. When I first saw the big cloth bag I knew I was going have a blast. A huge box appeared, a box whose lid was raised from the bottom part, yes, everybody knows what game is coming on steroids, whose components wont fit in the box, yes Earth Reborn.

And this was not over,not even close, next appeared a game I was so anxious to play for a while now. It's mystery, murder, detectives, light and darkness, yes, it's Jack in New York ninja:


I was thinking that this is too much already but a new game pops from the bag, a great co-op game with Frodo feat. Sauron, powered by Knizia , Lord of the Rings:


I was so excited to arrive in the office to open the goodies, yes you heard it correctly, the office, today no work, just fun and XMas joy.
Here is a picture with a super duper happy boardgames fan.



Thanks Santa, 2011 Christmas was the best Christmas ever.

Secret Santa rocks!

PS: I don't know if I will resist the temptation to try find your real identity so I can thank you directly. It's highly unlikely... modest

Yesterday I came back home in the evening and found a note near my door. At first I was a little bit upset - I thought it was something to do with the bills. But it appeared to be a message from the post office. It said that I should come and pick up a parcel!!! WOOOHOOO!!! It HAD to be my Secret Santa!!!
Well, he was a real pro - taunting me and keeping the tension, especially, pointing that my board game collection was too big etc.
I could hardly sleep at night and early in the morning I was already at the post office! Quick journey back home - and armed with a paper knife I started the parcel's execution!!!!

WOW! Pandemic: On the Brink - expansion to one of my most favourite co-op's!!! We never won this one, I doubt that the expansion would bring some relief to the players!
And what's that??? A game not from my wishlist but it seems really fun and exciting in big companies - a copy of "Are You a Traitor?"http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/41541/are-you-the-tra...

MANY MANY THANKS TO YOU, DEAR SANTA!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

My secret santa sent me something I definitely wanted AND something I hadn't even heard of - in a good way!

RRR looks like a game I could easily enjoy with the wife - as an added plus it is a bit abstract, two player, and teaches/plays quickly. I'm thinking it is something like Hive which is one we both love.

Santa also sent me a copy of Macao which I've had on my list for a while but never really pulled the trigger on (I know a few that have a copy but now I have my own!)

Thanks for a great gift!

After many many days of going to the mailbox and leaving sad I got home from a trip to the parents to find a UPS ticket attached to my door. I had a great feeling that my secret Santa delivered. After a sleepless night I went to the apartment office and was waiting at the door when they opened. I was so excited to find this great game that my family will love over and over. I got home and set it up only to have the cat go ballistic with all its parts. I guess I'll have to wait to get in a full game Thanks Santa for getting me exactly what I wanted. It was my first year doing SS and I am proud to part of such a great community.

Note: tried to edit the entry I had before, but apparently you cannot change from "publisher" to "boardgame".So, I've deleted the earlier entry and here we go again:

I was sick yesterday and the day before, in bed, and feeling sorry for myself. I caved and opened my BGG Secret Santa gift. This is what I found!

Thanks kindly Secret Santa! I knew when the envelope from Victory Point Games arrived what I was in store for, but I almost made it to Christmas!

Still, I'm feeling a lot better today, so some magic must have occurred.

Corner Kick! and Nemo's War with Nemo's War Expansion Kit!

Thanks very much Secret Santa!

My Secret Santa present found its way into my arms the same way this year! I stopped by the apartment office to pick up two Amazon shipments of Christmas presents for friends and family, but three boxes slid across the counter instead. "Thoughthammer? I didn't order anything from... Ooooh!"

I rushed right home to take pictures! Here's the extra box that greeted me at the office, with Eclipse looming over it in the background from a play last night with my gaming group.



Moments later after a flurry of pocket knives and packing material. Eclipse does not approve of these wrapped interlopers!



I was already in the mood to rip into things and take pictures, so I gave each box a shake, took a minute to dream up a convincing story about why I opened them early (the box was damp! I had to check for water damage, yeah!), and tore into them!



Woo, Power Grid! I've been meaning to try this one out forever! I can't wait to get it to the table and play it with my group. We also have:

Citadels


Woo, Citadels! A coworker brought this one in for lunch games a few times, and I thought it was very well suited for that. I'll be fun to get it out for my gaming group to try out a larger game of it, too. I can't wait to stab my friends in the back and take their delicious gold coins to fund my empire!

My Santa also included a very nice note apologizing for not being wealthy or connected enough for some of the items on my wishlist. Nooooo, Santa, don't feel that way! I included games that are tricky to find just in case you were looking for a challenge, but I'd never be upset that you went with some of the easier grabs on the list. I'm just as happy as I could be with your present, and you made my whole week with these awesome games! Thank you very much, and Merry Christmas!

This was another really fun year of BGGSS for me, and I'll be looking forward to it next year as well, for sure!

I need to apologize to Santa for not updating this list yet! There has been a prioirty mail box sitting under the tree for over two weeks, and I neglected to add anything to this geeklist!

Anyhow, the family all had one present to open this past Sunday, and I chose to open my BGG package. I was surprised to find not one, but two wrapped presents! I opened one, to find this wonderful expansion to add to my TTR collection!

And the best part, there is still one package left to open! (I'll get to that one later this week - even though I have a guess as to the contents!)

Thanks Santa!

Woohoo! Have to admit, was getting a little worried as the days kept getting closer and closer to Christmas and still no package from my Santa. Was starting to kinda think maybe he forgot about me.

Then I woke up this *ahem* afternoon and low and behold there was a box from Amazon.com on the kitchen table sent to me! With barely restrained glee I opened the box and found two gifts inside.. Undermining and an expansion for Carcassonne: Carcassonne: The Phantom!!!

Thanks a bunch, Santa! Gonna try out Undermining later today in fact. laugh

I'll update this entry once I break in (hopefully I can wait 'till Sunday)

Well that was quick- my resolve got as far as blind wrapping the contents of the box, tagging it and putting it under the tree... where it stayed for about a half hour.

I'm SO happy to get this game! I might even get the opportunity to break it in with a lunch group tomorrow. THANKS SANTA!!!!!!

Today, just as I was walking out to get a cup of coffee, I saw a FedEx truck driving off. I thought "Hm, I wish I got a package today..." Coming back with my warm coffee and pastry, I saw a large box sitting at the doorway to my apartment building. Used to seeing them, I walked past it, figuring it was for someone else in the building. But as I entered the door, I felt a pit in my stomach. I hustled back to it, noticed it was heavy and slightly noisy, brought it in and then peeked at the label. It was addressed to me!

I rushed it upstairs, forgot about my coffee and pastry and tore the box open, throwing packing peanuts (or ghost poop, as I am want to call it) to find Eclipse waiting for me inside. Shrink-wrap was torn off in a heartbeat, and then I began the chit-punching. 45 minutes later, my coffee slightly cold and my pastry colder, I was finished.

Tonight is my weekly RPG night, but I might just (temporarily) change it to Eclipse night. Thanks Santa!

Ok I am not sure if I should add a new post or go back a few weeks and edit my first gift. I was not sure everyone would see so I am adding a new post. This is the second gift I received from my secret Santa. First was Merchants and Marauders and now this. Puerto Rico with the expansion. Now I fee like a true gamer!

Thanks again Secret Santa. Not sure if you are from Iowa or Illinois but Santa has one great elf! You made this Christmas awesome!

My Secret Santa was awesome, and got me this game. He I am assuming a "he" here) also got me a card.

I look forward to playing this after I get back from my family for Christmas.

My family is unfortunately not much for playing games.

The good news I am bring my lord of the rings which can solo play. My secret Santa also got me this:

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – Return to Mirkwood

Which I am sure will get some play while I am in California.

Thank you again Secret Santa.

A package from Santa was waiting on the front step when I got home from work this afternoon! After getting the girls inside and all the daycare things unpacked, our 2yo helped me open the package.

Charlotte has been really into games lately and asks us to play several times a week. Some of her current favorites have been My First Carcassonne, Bounce It-In Game, and Chicken Cha Cha Cha. Her face lit up as I unpacked two games: The first was Boo Who? (the American version of Spooky Stairs which I have had on the wishlist quite awhile). I didn't even know there was an American version, but Santa sure did her homework! It was such a fun surprise. Our daughter even let out a big, "Ohhh boy!"

We also received Enchanted Forest, one of Santa's favorites. Charlotte immediately asked, "Games peeze, Mommy? Open wight now!" I had to get supper going, so we couldn't play tonight, but they will get some play later in the week.



Santa even said there's another game on the way!

Thank you, Santa!

ETA: The last game came today-Sleeping Queens- Thank you, Santa!
