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!

Thank you Santa!

Belfort and Quarriors! Rise of the Demons arrived in the mail today, along with a veritable stocking's worth of treats, toys, and some intriguing trick dice.

Thanks so much Santa - hopefully we'll get these to the table for our annual New Year's Eve game night!

What a crazy month! First I get granted a week off last minute due to higher seniority coworkers giving up some vacation time. Then we decide to make a trip to visit my parents. Then we get all tied up in planning such a road trip last minute. All this amidst sending out Secret Santa stuff and playing hangman with my own Secret Santa. It was great fun!

I wasn't able to devote as much time to my own target, but I managed to get stuff shipped before we left at least. Whew!

I finally opened my gifts and great joy was had!

I'm a big discworld fan and now I get to enjoy Ankh-Morpork.

Also included was Quarriors! and Quarriors! Rise of the Demons! Excellent! I haven't played it as of yet because it's been sitting in the garage. Man, the stink on those bags and plastic rivals that of the leather in a thrifted copy of Pirate's Dice. I'm still glad I finally have it though!

A red and green deck of Ligretto, aka Ligretto was also in the box. One I'm not familiar with but looks like an easy to teach speed game.

Tsuro arrived from White Dragon as well! On the same day I happened to find a thrifted copy for my Thrify Secret Santa target, too. What are the odds?

Oh, as a result of our hangman game, Santa sent me bag! 58, 8 of it specifically for the hangman answer of Terry Pratchett Fan Microbadge. I'm sporting it now. *poses*

I think that was everything. It was a rather busy season and games were popping up every which way.

Thanks so much Santa!!

Edit: A late addition, but I received a calender featuring Santa's scenic Australian summer residence! Thanks Santa!

My SS emailed me way back on the 17th letting me know that my gift was on its way. I was also informed that the gift was wrapped and I could open it immediately or wait till Christmas as I wished. Of course I was planning on ripping that bad boy open the millisecond it was in my grubby little hands. devil

Anyway, time passes and the date that my family is traveling out of state for the holiday is quickly approaching, yet no package. The date for our departure arrived and I was package-less. This sad panda took a few deep breaths, mentally prepared himself for the anguishing wait and packed his family up and headed out of town.

As my luck would have it, my house sitter called the first day of the vacation letting me know a mysterious package had arrived. I was seriously tempted to have him open it then and there over Facetime. The adult in me scolded the child in me and told him to wait, so I committed myself to the 10 day wait.

Anyway, that day was today. I raced home, threw my family aside and opened the package. Inside was this prettily wrapped present:
 


The best thing about not being around to open it on Christmas day (or long before), was that there was no guilt in tearing into that bad boy. After the wrapping settled I gazed upon the glory of:

 


I can't wait to play it! Good news is the our New Years party is a huge game night, chances look good that I won't have to wait nearly as long as I did to open the gorram present

THANKS SANTA!!!

Well well well... Where to start???

I've joined BGG around March of this year.. But didn't take an active rol until November. At that time my friend Sebastian (SebMan00) told me about an event called Secret Santa and it immediately caught my attention.

From the first moment I was really excited about the hole experience, and with a little help from Seba I got to choose my target's presents and get them delivered by early December It was really nice to see his reaction and from that moment I was already pleased.

Days gone by... This list began to grow and I had no word from Santa and started to get a little (okay... A LOT) anxious, until on Nov 21st Santa contacted me saying that he/she was having trouble finding a retailer that ships to Argentina, because Amazon seemed to do that but was refusing to. I answered that maybe a good choice was one of the retailers listed in the Secret Santa Store List, and told Santa that once we bought some stuff from Funagain who shipped to Argentina.

After that days kept passing and still no word from Santa nor any present on my doorstep. Then Christmas arrived and I was out of town for about 10 days because of spending Christmas with my family in Buenos Aires. This tuesday I came back to Bahia Blanca to celebrate my birthday and it was quite a rush. Since tuesday we are having temperatures around 40°C so you can imagine how it was....

The thing is that speaking with Sebastian that day he told me "why don't you go ask to the post office if there is any package waiting for you?", and I said "well.. I could go, but if there was a package for me they would have left an invoice"... So yesterday I was downtown running some errands and I went to the post office and.... SURPRISE!!! Actually there WAS a box from Funagain waiting for me


To sum up, I leave you a photo of me wearing a birthday present (from my boardgaming group ) holding my (not anymore) Secret Santa present: Thunderstone: Heart of Doom



MANY THANKS TO MY SANTA:

I don't know if Funagain just slipped your name in the box or you put it on purpose At any case thanks again!!!


I also want to thank all the BGG Community for making this a delightful experience Happy New Year to all of you!!! meeple

I must admit I was beginning to get slightly discouraged; however I became hopeful when UPS dropped a package off at my door this morning. I opened the package and found two gift wrapped boxes inside.

The first was:

Quest: A Time of Heroes


As I was looking for games to add to my wish list (prior to signing up for Secret Santa it was quite sparse), this game caught my eye. I've never played it before but I'm looking forward to doing so; perhaps this evening.

Hiding underneath the first game (appropriately enough) was:

Elder Sign


I'm too lazy to punch out all the bits for this one just yet...so I conspire to play this game later this weekend.

Many thanks to my Secret Santa! Hope you enjoy your games as much as I'll enjoy mine!

Santa also sent me some goodies which are a bit harder to get on this side of the pond.

So I got a packet in the post from spielbox which included

Manneken Pis for 7 Wonders


as well as Blue Moon City Expansion 1&2


So I got my most desired Knizia, with an expansion. My most sought after game from last year, and an expansion. As well Santa threw in a Christmas Card and a Spelbox CD! Thank you so much Santa this has been a truly wonderful Christmas made even more special by your generous and thoughtful Gifts. Thank you.

So I just got back into town, completely worn out from holiday time - days of overnight gaming sessions with the teenage nieces/nephews. I look forward to this opportunity every year as it further exposes them to the great variety of games available, and, well, there's gobs of willing candidates. We focused on games like Agricola, Tigris & Euphrates, Qwirkle, and epic sessions of Cosmic Encounter. Gaming Bliss

Walking into the house at 1am, I find a package waiting for me - YEAH! Secret Santa visited here!! No longer exhausted, I exuberantly slice the box in two and whip out a spectacular sight: The HOLY GRAIL! It's Twilight Imperium: Shattered Empire!!

I turn to my wife and exclaim "Look, Hon!! Do you know what this is?! Do you know how AWESOME this is?!"
Yes, I was a man possessed. I opened that box right then and there. Forgot the luggage in the hallway!
Man, feel those hexagon tiles - yeah, had my wife caress those pieces too!

So, to explain, I don't even have this game - no base copy - no nuthin! I've pined for this game ever since I joined BGG - the sheer volume of pieces, the level of intrigue, the scope of battle, the epic-ness! I just never got around to getting this masterpiece. My first chance to play was at BGG.con 2010 - freakin' awesome! Didn't even finish. Didn't care! Confirmed my fervent desire to have my very own copy.

So, yeah, freakout!!! This expansion makes an already great game brilliant! And I'm now committed. Should you feel sorry for my friends? NO!!!! Moments of great catastrophe and triumph await!

And, finally, my Secret Santa leaves me with this:
Quote:
Your package is on the way! But fear not for I bring you great tidings of great joy. This Santa celebrates in January too.

... surprise Say...what?!! What's Santa mean?!

So, SECRET SANTA, A BIG THANK YOU for sending me on my way into gaming Nirvana!!!!!

Hey, thanks to my Secret Santa I was able to play the feared Village-Smithy-Cellar-MOBY STICK combination and picked up a Province and a Mine!

In addition to Dominion and Slapshot, my Santa included card protectors from my new gaming obsession, some Calvin & Hobbes books, and a 2012 calendar.

Apparently, Santa has a 2nd workshop in Colorado*?

Christmas Day came and went without a word from Santa. I was worried that I might have been on the naughty list. surprise

But, today I got a call from my wife saying that a package had arrived from Troll & Toad. I knew what that meant! When I got home I found a little box waiting for me on the kitchen table, which I quickly opened.

It was a copy of Hey, That's My Fish!, a game I had high on my wishlist.


I already got 2 plays in and I think it will see a lot more.

Thanks Santa, I am sure we will be playing this for years to come!


I am sort of hoping Santa still has something else up his sleeve, but we will have to wait and see.....

Finally... my geeklist entry...

My Santa was a very good communicator, which allowed me to follow every step of the way. The package arrived 2 weeks before Christmas, but I managed to keep the present unwrapped until Christmas Eve.

In the mean time we had a little guessing game, but my guesses went really nowhere
This was the first hint: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/blondies-recip...
Santa said he was being a 'little' cryptic... I still don't know what this was about

At the same time Santa revealed that there was another present in the package Look what I found!



Both Maria and Jaipur are games about which I've read some very good things, so I'm extremely happy and spoiled with these wonderful games!

So a big thanks, my Secret Santa, who- and whereever you are, for a job very, very well done!!

And a Happy New Year to all!!


Dear Santa,

Yesterday your card arrived! It seems it was on the way quite a while . A big thanks, it was the cherry on the cake!

Thanks for a wonderful Santa-experience this year!!

Peter

Woo-hoo! My present arrived!

Apparently I have been quite good this year … a huge and heavy box … and inside was not only Arkham Horror which was probably No. 1 on my wishlist, but also



the "King in yellow" expansion! Before even playing the game, I have already pimped it a little bit by adding a black cloth bag for the monster chits and black lining the investigator pieces with a thick black edding pen.

Thank you, thank you,
thank you
Santa!

I'm the only person taking part in BGG Secret Santa 2011 Hubby decided to take a break this year cos our game shelves are almost full....
Well, he asked me to take a break too. But I refused to break my yearly BGG Secret Santa tradition and I want to collect the microbadge.

Despite not taking part, Hubby is also very excited abt receiving my Santa's gifts.

A few days ago, my Santa finally geekmailed me to inform that he had forgot to send my parcel earlier cos Santa was too busy. Santa said he will get another parcel for me since it was my birthday! I finally received two parcels today. A guy delivered two parcels for me from Bogas & My first games just now.

From Bogas - The Resistance & Botswana.





From My first games - Halli Galli, Turn the tide & a cute little party game which we have never heard of.....Trigger!







Thank you so much, Santa! I'm sure we will have lots of fun with the games! Happy New Year to u & your family!

My SS achieved a great thing when he sent me his late gift this year...

He made me save money on boxing day since i am really nuts on that day being a collector and well, very fast on the trigger... Since i got my present only yesterday, i've decided not to go out on boxing day in order to avoid a duplicate and managed to find out new buying possibilities that will help me save a lot and continue my passion of collecting that we geek loves.

The store didn't sent the package anonymously and i was able to GM a thx to my fellow Canadian SS!

Thx a lot for this great present SS!

Woohoo! I got quite a large package from my apartment office the other day and dived right in. The first thing I see is a nice hand written card from my secret Santa. Below that is a tin of delicious walnut fudge. Mmmmm.

I move aside all the packaging peanuts to find Mr. Jack. A game I've been eyeballing for the last few months. It always gets pushed aside for another game. I found out that he also included the expansion for it as well!!!

Hidden below that was a very large game box. Battle Cry! I just received a book about the Civil War for Christmas so this was perfect. So many little figures and a ton of different scenarios. Can't wait to give this game a go. Thank you secret santa. You went well above what I was expecting and you really didn't need to go through all this trouble. I would have been happy with just the fudge
