Dear Santa(s),

Wooow, I have really amazing Santas. I cannot believe how lucky I am

Wargamer Santa:

Dear Santa, I just want to report that I have still not received your gift. I guess your elves are really busy nowadays. So i just wanted to update you on why I haven't posted anything yet... Take care

Writing poems is not my strong side but fortunately it seems I don't have to write it myself so I take the help from the very best of the best and bring out the heavy artillery; Calvin (from the amazing Calvin & Hobbes):

"On window panes, the icy frost
leaves feathered patterns, crissed and crossed,
but in our house the christmas three
is decorated festively
With tiny dots of colored light
that cozy up this winter night.
Christmas songs, familar, slow,
play softly on the radio.
Pops and hisses from the fire
whistle with the bells and choir.
my tiger is now fast asleep
on his back no dreaming deep.
when the fire makes him hot,
he turns to warm whatever's not.
propped against him on the rug,
I give my friend a gentle hug.
Tomorrow's what I'm waiting for,
But I can wait a little more."

Regular Santa:

Thanks soooo much for your amazing present. I can´t wait to try it out. You really saved my days when I was home and sick...

To both of you: do you have any instructions on when I can open my present(s)?

I'm so happy to be part of this once again. This is my favourite part of my christmas-preparations

I believe I have been a reasonable good boy this year. At least if you´re willing to overlook some betrayals in Eclipse, some nasty killing of weak humans in War of the Ring (second edition)and other similar stuff... I can only justify my action with the fact that they were necessary for me to win. Well, almost all of it anyway whistle

Since I participate in both wargame-Santa and BGG-Santa I have made a, maybe futile, attemt to see if I can guide you in some directions. I have marked my preferred Wargames with 1 & my preferred other games with 2, leaving a bunch of games rated 3 & 4 in cases it doesn't work.

But don't worry. I will be happy either way and any case. You can also look at my game-collections and see if there is something I might like but have got unnoticed from me. Feel free to send me a shiny new one or a good but used copy if that makes your life easier.

I also want to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very good christmas.

Ohhh, I must not forget the milk & the cookies:

My Top 10-list is my highest rated games while my Hot 10-games are those that i would like to play more.

Some quotes I like:

"NOBODY expects the D&D rules revision! Our chief change is the ranger. And the druid. Our TWO chief changes are the ranger and the druid and the way magic spells work. Arg! Our three chief changes are the ranger, the druid, the way magic works and shiny new covers I'LL COME IN AGAIN!"

- Peter Adkison

"If any company ever produces a game that EVERY gamer likes, I suspect it would cause such a contradiction that a tear would occur in the fabric of space-time, destroying thousands of galaxies in a horrifying conflagration of conflicting house rules and causing the super-intelligent gamers in the civilizations of thousands of other galaxies serious consternation as their standard, nine-sided dice roll only Pi."

- BozemanPhil

"It´s hard to be humble when you´re as great as I am:

- Muhammed Ali

"For in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's futures. And we are all mortal."

- John F Kennedy
