Wishlist guide:1 - Must have - if I could (money, availability, etc.), I would buy it at once.
2 - Love to have - not very far from 1, but I usually have to be in the mood, the game has to be on discount or I have a discount code. Impulse buys for cheaper games happen in here.
3 - Like to have - games that can wait. I either played somebodies copy a few times or played it on-line a few times and I'm satiated for now. I might also have a game from the same or similar category, that I want to play more before getting the game from the wishlist (e.g. owned: War of the Ring, wishlist: The Battle of Five Armies). Impulse buys happen, but are rather rare.
4 - Thinking about it - I don't know yet if I want the game. A game that caught my attention, but I still have to read/watch a review and/or a gameplay runthrough. New, upcoming games are usually placed here first. A massive discount will trigger an impulse buy. Games that are here quite often disappear from my wishlist.
5 - Don't buy this - a game which I ordered/pre-ordered and/or a situation which I described in the wishlist comment for it.
Hey there my Secret Santa!
If a wishlist item has "Polish Edition" next to it, then only this edition would make me happy (I hope this doesn't sound rude!). If no language is specified, an English edition is preferred, but as long as I can find an English instruction, any language will make me happy
If you think that I would be happy with a game that is not on my wishlist, a game that supports/plays well as a 2-player game is a good start
If it's convenient for you to buy at your Local Santa Base, I'm fine with that. If you want to buy closer to my location, if there are two versions available in Poland (localized and original), the Polish version is usually cheaper
As the exchange manager, I will also know who you are Santa, but please play along - it's still so much fun!
Stores for your convenience - previous Santa's had no problems with them and they accept PayPal:
- you have to contact them directly about a PayPal payment. It costs 5% more because of the fee, but it's still the cheapest store in Poland.
- first purchase has a 5% discount

Wow! Secret Santa once again rolled out the heavy guns! Literally heavy, because exactly on Saint Nicholas' Day I received War of the Ring (second edition)! But that wasn't the only thing, oh no! A generous pack of chocolates and an awesome card arrived at my door a few days later. Thank you Santa Ann!2012:

I've got an awesome package containing Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game, Dragon's Gold, Small World: Cursed!, Carcassonne: The Messengers and a lot of delicious goodies! Thank you Santa Nathalie!About The Ghargh:
I have more games than time to play them as often as I would like to. And still I need
a few games from categories that I don't have. And expansions. And accessories. And... please - don't judge me - I'm addicted...
I don't think I have a favourite category of board games - I love them all, but I like when a game is medium-heavy at most (still easy to learn and teach, but takes time to master). When I don't play board games, I play PC games. When I don't play PC games, I play bass guitar. When I don't play anything at all, I compose and listen to music and take photos.

I just want to say, God, on behalf of all of us thank you for all of the good things we do in your name, like charity and forgiveness. That’s an idea we would never come up with. That’s for sure. You know that better than anybody.
