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!

Got an email from my Secret Santa saying my gift may be arriving a wee bit late but the VERY NEXT DAY I got a box in the mail! The day after that I got another box which included TWO nicely wrapped presents in it! 7 Wonders was one of those, the other two games are:

Dominion: Cornucopia

Martian Dice

We cracked open Martian Dice today for a quick game with one of the nephews - he loves it now, too! And we have two gaming days coming up this week, so they'll all be sure to get played!

Thanks, Santa!

I only recently found BGG ... luckily it was before the Secret Santa started!

Organising and sending a parcel to my target for my first time participating was a blast, and even more fun than I expected! And now I'm extra exited to have recieved my wonderful gift from my Secret Santa ... not only did I get Ticket to Ride: Europe, from the very top of my wishlist, but I also received the Ticket to Ride: Europa 1912 expansion! WooHoo!!!


Thank you Santa, you're awesome ... I can't wait to play!

Merry Christmas to all of you geeks!

My secret Santa rocked! I must admit I was worried as I didn't hear anything from him until the 19th of December (The other years I had talkative Santas, so I was a bit afraid I had been a bad geek) but seeing my stress coming up Santa reassured me saying that he was watching me and that the elves (helped by an autochthonous one) just were on their way... and so indeed, a couple of day later there was a big box waiting for me at my front door when I came back from work... I opened it and found a big wrapped package... so I put it under the tree and waited patiently for the 25th to open it...

And what was in? Well Navegador! The game I most wanted to try out in my wish list... and and... 7 Wonders: Leaders awesome! The expansion for my most played game of 2011!! Right on Santa! You rock! I'm sorry I stressed out! You were the best!

Thank you very very much!

Cheers

Nick

My SS was quite efficient by sending along my gift within the first 10 days of Secret Santa this year. My rule for myself has always been if the game is wrapped - wait until Christmas! And sure enough, even though it was before Thanksgiving, I had a wrapped gift and had to wait!

It was tough to just have it laying around so I eventually asked my wife to hide it so I wouldn't keep looking at it (hmmm, is that corner coming undone? Maybe I can poke my finger in there and see the side of the box...).

I'm happy to report that I made it to Christmas morning!

Thank you, Secret Santa! I am looking quite forward to getting to play it!

My Secret Santa was quiet for a while before he started sending me messages from the future!

He knows that me & my friends are huge Dr Who fans, and has cooked up a letter, a website and I think some clues to solve! I've been chomping at the bit to get the clues, and have been having a blast corresponding with my future friend.

I received a package a few days before Christmas, but was told that I needed to wait until the 25th. I'm a good companion and held out until yesterday, where what greeted me was:



A game that I'm super excited about.

I've been told there something else coming as well, but I have no information as to what that is. My christmas has already been awesome, so anything else is just icing on the cake!

Edit: I realized after I read this that I didn't say thank you, which was definitely an oversight! THANK YOU SO MUCH SANTA!

Look what Santa/Secret Santa brought me

Secret santa brought me Android, 1912, and Seven Dragons

Santa brought me oh some other minor titles.....whistle

 


p.s. the tree is small because we have a cat and a tree on the floor is just too tempting.

p.p.s. for those who think the wife's gifts are scant, she has been Santa'ed a Lapy Topy which is already in use (not in Pic). you BGG'ers are much too observant for your own good.

Thank you Santa

A few weeks ago a big box was delivered. They charged 10 euro for customs so I checked the box. This had to be my secret santa gift!!!

I opened the box together with my girlfriend. She first checked the packages were gift wrapped and because this was the case I joined in on the fun. We kept on pulling gifts out of the box. We pulled 4 gifts out of the box. When we were sitting on our knees next to the Christmas tree I knew how it feels to be a little boy again. I wanted to open them, but I made a promise to myself to wait until Christmas.

Because the gifts kept on staring at me from under the Christmas tree, I asked santa I could open a gift early. He told me I could, but I really wanted to be a nice boy and I waited until Christmas.

Yesterday I opened all the gifts and this is what I got:

Alien Frontiers


Isla Dorada


Belfort


Eminent Domain


Do I need to write anything more? My Secret Santa is the best!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you! The best 10 euros ever spent

Merry Christmas everyone and a *HUGE, HUGE, HUGE* (did I mention HUGE?!?) THANK YOU TO MY SECRET SANTA!!!!

Around Thanksgiving I received two presents from my Secret Santa - he did warn me - and my better half did her best to keep me away from them saying I should wait till Christmas to open them. Shortly before Christmas I received an additional package from my Secret Santa and once again my better half did her best to keep me away from the gifts. (Queue Star Trek "battle music" between Spock and Kirk.)

Here is an image of the gifts underneath the Christmas tree:


The wrapping didn't last long and here is a picture of the presents unwrapped:


The gifts really made my Christmas. (I can't stress this enough!) Thank you again Secret Santa and Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Shortly after the targets were assigned, I received a taunt with clues to the games he had picked out for me. I figured out a few of them, and if I was right it was going to be a very Merry Christmas indeed!

When the Cyclades expansion was delayed to 2012, my SS added in another game to an already generous gift:

Elder Sign

This package arrived just as I was heading out for a game playing day, so I took it along to try out.


A few days later, a larger package arrived but was intercepted by my wife. Following instructions from SS, she wrapped each game separately and set out one each day in early December (my Secret Sinterklaas is from the Netherlands). I wasn't allowed to open them, though, so under the tree they went.

Christmas morning, I was delighted to find:

London


BANG! Wild West Show


Wings of War: Crossfire Booster Pack


The Great Dalmuti



And sometime next year I'll get another package:
Cyclades: Hades



Many thanks to a wonderful, amazingly generous Sinterklaas!

Received some great presents this year from my Secret Santa!

Santa did an excellent job of teasing and finding out what presents to send.

A little backstory:
I had spent a portion of BGG.con at the Plaid Hat Games demo tables hepling run some Summoner Wars and Dungeon Run demos. After the Con, I was going to see if PHG had the new Master Set faction dice avaiable for sale at their website. Lo and behold, they did. So I placed an order for the seven faction dice sets and was looking forward to receiving them. The order was placed after Secret Santa assignments and Santa had been sending teasing BGG mail about various presents on their way. Never underestimate the power of Santa as I received a refund and a package from PHG almost the same day.

Woah!! Santa was good...very good!



Inside the package were the exact same dice sets order the day before(Santa gave permission to open it...):


Santa also informed me that the second part of the gift was on the way. During the waiting period I did get to use the new dice in a game of Song of Blades and Heroes and they performed admirably.

Dec. 22 arrives along with a package from Santa:


Carefully placed under the tree, it was a constant temptation.

Finally the big day arrived and Santa continued with the big hits:



Excellent! Cant wait to get this game to table!

Thanks again, Santa!! You did a great job this year!

At the beginning of December, he asked if it would be okay for him to get something not on my wish list, but he was sure I would like. Always one to like a surprise, I agreed. This game showed up (wrapped) a few days later. When I opened it on Christmas morning I was pleasantly surprised! This is one I don't know anything about, but I'm very excited to give it a try!

Thanks Santa!

Well, looks like I got a bum Santa this year...

(Yes, it could still be on it's way, so I am not going to cry foul YET)

I know it is all about the giving, and that has been totally enjoyable, but IF my Santa didn't send anything, I have to admit that it would make me a little sad that someone would do that.

BGG Secret Santa has always been something I have looked forward to every year. ESPECIALLY seeing how excited my target has gotten.

Here's hoping I can edit this later this week!

A mighty thank you to my Secret Santa for sending Urban Sprawl my way. This is one I've had my eye on and my hands off of for some time. It looks so intriguing even my wife is interested in giving it go!

Once again, whoever you are, thank you!!!

This year was a very special year thanks to my Santa!

I received an email from Santa a few weeks ago stating that the elves were running behind but they should be done with my gift by Christmas. On Christmas eve, my Santa had pulled through, probably by unfair working conditions and less than adequate pay - poor elves. When I opened the package, I was thrilled by what what inside! I recieved the AoE - Builder Expansion and Infinite City.

I have been waiting on an expansion for one of my favorite games, Age of Empires III for a couple of years now. I put it on my wishlist right after it was announced and there it sat for over a year. With the fate of the expansion up in the air, I didn't think I would ever get to play with the new builders or use any of the new building that came with the game. Thanks Santa!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. Now give those elves a break!
