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!

Santa was very generous this year. Shortly after Thanksgiving we received a box with 2 wrapped presents that have been taunting me from under the tree until Christmas finally arrived today. I was thrilled to find Ninjato and Troyes inside. In addition we got a nice package with the Die Schule expansion for Carcassone and the 7 Wonders: Catan with hand translated instructions. Thank you very much, Merry Christmas, and Happy 2012!

I'm pretty new to all this, so it took me a while to find this thread...

My santa was awesome! The very large package arrived before Thanksgiving!!

We decided to open it on Thanksgiving and found that it contained a copy of The Pillars of the Earth - and as if that wasn't enough - a copy of The Pillars of the Earth: Expansion Set !!!

We played The Pillars of the Earth on Thanksgiving but haven't gotten to the expansion yet.

Thanks so much for taking the time to make our holidays a wonderful time!

Wow. Thank you Santa. Having played Dominant Species and also being a fan on Elasund this was one game I was really hoping to get this Christmas. And you delivered!

And despite the fairly regular taunting and teasing i have endured you even sent me another cool present.



This should make our Race for the galaxy games even more fun.

Thanks secret santa you have been great fun and sent me some awesome gifts.

I got a box from Cardhaus about three weeks ago. I know it was from My SS So I assidently opened the box and Emenent Domain was inside! Then I got a 2nd box about two weeks ago and this time the game was wrapped but I was a little careless when I put it under the tree and a little bit of the wrapping came off and I was able to see that it was Discworld: Ankh-Morpork. I did wait until today to open. Thank you, Thank you SS aka

Look what my Secret Santa sent to me. He is so unbelievably generous! A parcel arrived with three wrapped presents sometime in late November, I was only suspecting one game and couldn't believe how lucky I was. Then a few days later, another parcel arrived with yet another game - 4 in total!

Despite my secret santa saying I could open the smaller parcel before Christmas, my wife is something of a traditionalist, so I waited until Christmas Day. I'm so pleased, these are probably the four games I wanted the most! They were:

Le Havre
A Few Acres of Snow
Stone Age
Jaipur

Thank you santa. Am looking forward to some boxing day gaming now.

I am so excited to try this game (with the new updated rules) with all the people of the Palaeontology department of the University of Zaragoza. I see a war coming between the mamalist and the dinosaurist to establish which creatures are cooler...

Dark dreams haunt me of blasphemous accursed deeds committed at the North Pole. Santa has fallen to corruption of foul cacodaemoniacal black monstrosities! I know this now! They haunt me in my sleep, tormenting me, faceless eldritch things, tearing at my soul... and now, now this! This unclean box arrives at my doorstep!



With dread I accept this thing from the necrophagous carrier of mail. Clouded ichorous eyes watched me as I closed the door sealing my impending doom! Vile symbols adorned the box... what lies within?



Earth Reborn.... and an envelope with that horrid runic symbol that danced before my eyes like some demonic sugar plum fairy.

Is this some horrid prediction? Can my tormentor see what should not be seen? Is there some catastrophe awaiting us...




The card! THE CARD!!!!! My Eyes Bleed... My Soul Screams!!! Blackness grips my heart..... Dear God what madness is this!!!!



The parchment is Cursed! Passed to me unsuspecting, black things are coming Black Things are Coming Faceless Winged Things that Tear and Rip at Me!!!! Coiled and Tentacled!!!!

AAAAAGGGRRrrrrrrrrrrrr.....



This third and final gift arrived a few weeks ago however after briefly glancing at the contents of the box I went temporarily insane and hid the box away in the safest place I could think of at the moment... under the Christmas tree. Here it laid until this morning when I completely the last of the ceremonies and rituals to break the ruinous powers that cursed this thing... it is clean now to play but what... what of next year?

see the earlier posts related to this Secret Santa here:

Part 1

Part 2

And God help next year's target.

It was already 23th of December when I got home from work and still no sign from Secret Santa (beside some messages at the start). Then suddenly the door bell rang and the post man brought a parcel I didn't order. My wife grabbed it. And it was the last package I was allowed to open on Christmas Eve... Boy, was I excited!

Thanks, Secret Santa, for this wonderful game! Hope to play it soon.

Thank you Santa!!!!

I've been waiting to open my box since it arrived back on Dec 5 with the help of CLS Games. When the box arrived, I had my son open it to make sure if they were wrapped or not, he said it wasn't. So we closed it back up, and sat it until the tree to taunt me until Christmas morning. Here is a picture of it sitting there taunting me.




Christmas morning FINALLY came. I wanted to open the box first, but my son kept pushing it under the tree and wouldn't give it to me until almost all the presents were unwrapped.

He then placed the box in front of me and I finally opened it. The first game pulled out of all the styrofoam was:

Excape
I was really hoping to receive this game, it was #1 on my wantlist. My dreams have come true.


Last out of the box was a surprise, I was only expecting one gift from the size of the box. But good things come in small packages.

Ticket to Ride: The Card Game
A gift that I've been meaning to get for a while.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

and a special thank you to my Secret Santa!!

In addition Santa saw fit to include a game not on my wishlist:

I was very happy to see it because I almost bought it a few days before Christmas. Santa really does know best!!

I have had this as a 1 on my wishlist for quite a while. Partially because of it's near mythic grail-status here, partially due to it being well regarded as a game, and partially because it's about superheroes.

Lorna mocked me for a long time that I would never even SEE a copy of the game, let alone get one as a Secret Santa gift. So, I was extra surprised when my SS (as himself) contacted me, and asked if I would be interested in a hand-made copy of this. I was stunned to say the least, and eagerly accepted the offer.

Now, cards on the table, I had never read through the parts list for the game, or I probably wouldn't have accepted. I was in speechless when I opened the package this morning.



(I have uploaded additional images to my gallery to save space here. I am no photographical genius, so pardon anything that is fuzzy/washed out/other annoying photo quality)

Needless to say, I was amazed. SO many pieces, and so very well done. And all packed very well in nested storage boxes that I'm going to have to get more information on. I'm going to be playing games alot over the next month, and this will see the table as much as my friends can stand.

Thanks Santa! Couldn't have asked for anything better!

I received my gifts a few weeks ago but I was bound and determined to wait until Christmas to open them. There were two gifts beautifully wrapped. In fact they looked better than any gift we wrapped ourselves. My wife put them at the front of the Christmas tree in the place of honor. Finally Christmas morning came and they were the first gifts I opened. To my surprise, I found a copy of Defenders of the Realm and 2 de Mayo. I had been staring at those gifts every day for 2 weeks and thought I knew what they were based on the shape of the boxes. I was wrong on both boxes. I haven't gotten a chance to open them up yet and play them, but I can't wait. Thank you very much for my gifts Santa. I love them!

Thank you, Santa!

I just finished playing a game of one of the other expansions on Friday night, and we had a great time, so I can't wait for this one to hit the table! Even if we don't have much hope of winning.laugh
