Dear Santa Update 5:
I apologize for taking so long to update you, my wife and I went to Phoenix for a few days and I came home to the Star Wars game waiting for me when I returned. Thank you so much I can't wait to try it out. Also my wife recieved a mysterious package over the weekend that we are certain also came from Santa so thank you for that as well.
My geeklist entry for the year has been submitted HERE. Thank you again and Merry Christmas.


Dear Santa Update 4:

That sounds wonderful I am defintitely looking forward to trying out the Star Wars Miniatures game. My father in law and I spent the majority of Thursday completing the light show at their house. Last year we had a few strands of lights go out (they were old and had a good life) and they were replaced with LED's so we spent a few hours more than usual trying to make sure everything looked good. It was a great way to work up an appetite for Christmas dinner and I will try to get some pictures posted up here ASAP.
Yesterday afternoon my wife and I decorated the outside of our house, it is nowhere near as nice as my in-laws looks but we are much more limited as to what we can put on the house since we live on base. Hope things are going well for you.


Dear Santa Update 3:

I know all too well the issues of back-ordered games this time of year so please don't fret too much over it. All is going well here and the weather is starting to get colder. My wife said I could pull out the Christmas lights this week and start making sure everything was in working order so we can begin decorating the house soon. This weekend I get to decorate my in-laws home which has become an annual tradition since they are no longer able to do it. My father in-law comes out and makes suggestions as to what would/wouldn't work well this year and we try to figure out where to place the new decorations. The whole process usually takes a couple of days but by the time it is done they have a house you can see from space.

Merry (soon) Christmas.


Dear Santa Update 2:

You shouldn't be too hard on the elves I'm sure they could use a 'game break' like the rest of us from time to time. I'm not terribly picky when it comes to games, new/used/dinged/dented/opened I'm happy with. Anything you'd like to send would be a wonderful addition to my collection.

Dear Santa Update 1:

I apologize for taking so long to write I was out the state for my sister's wedding and I just got back home last night. My list is updated and checked twice but I admit I haven't had the time I'd like to find new games etc. If you find something you think I'd really enjoy and its not on the list please feel free to surprise me.

Hope all is going well at the Pole.


Dear Santa,

I have tried to be very good this year and I like to think I succeeded. I have not been on BGG as much as usual for various reasons but mostly due to work and family. I have 3 children (two of which just turned 4 and love playing board games with me) and one that is 1 and is still getting past the 'chew on the pieces' stage. Because of this my wishlist is lacking on new board games so if there is something you think I'd love feel free to surprise me.

I am part of two different board game groups, one group (VV or Victorville) is mostly comprised of gaming veterans and enjoys a broad spectrum of games and the other group is mostly new gamers at my home on Friday evenings. Because of this I tend to have my wishlist broken down a bit depending on which group I think would appreciate a game more etc, this is mostly to help me keep track of things.

You biggest fan

I am a lover of games, I will usually play anything that gets to the table in front of me so long as its title doesn't end in 'opoly'.

I feel gaming life will be successful if, when I pass my children argue over who gets which game more than they argue over who gets my mustang.

I am also Co-Owner of Paracord Creations where we have recently started making custom dice bags and gamer keychains from paracord. https://www.facebook.com/ChristophersComforts
