Please note - I have removed all old placeholders from this list. Please only use this list to record the receipt of games actually received from your Santa.

Only use placeholders to let your Santa know you received your package but are waiting to open it. When you actually open the package, please update the entry with the game(s) you received and express your reaction for your Santa. Please let me know if you experience any problems with this via GeekMail. Sorry for any confusion...now on to the list:


Since we just got our Secret Santa Targets assigned --

Last year's episode of "Look what my Secret Santa sent me..." was well received, so I am creating the same list again for 2007.

I originally posted this as a way to let my Santa know when I receive my gift without him/her worrying about letting me know who (s)he is. Use this as a central area to record what our Secret Santas sent us. If you plan on using this list, you may want to make a note on your profile so your Secret Santa knows to look on the list for your receipt and 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 divulged!

If your Santa sends you more than one item, just list them all in one listing unless you think it makes more sense to list them separately. Remember to include any comments you want your Secret Santa to know!

I don't know about anyone else, but I generally obsess about whether a package has arrived at it's intended destination. I drive my wife crazy with checking tracking numbers constantly! So it will be nice to see when those gifts are actually received by the giftee (or are they just sitting unclaimed on the neighbor's porch?)

(I am just using a generic Christmas first item as a placeholder for mine until my gift arrives, at which time I will update it with the real gift). In case you were wondering - yes, I do have a probably unfounded fondness for this holiday.

Now for the big question - do you open the gift or allow it to taunt you from under the tree until your local Christmas/Holiday gift opening?

Many thanks to Santa for bringing me Dungeon Twister this year! It was next on my list of games to purchase so the timing was perfect. Now if I can just talk the wifey into playing...

OK, it is now official that MY Secret Santa rocks out loud! Not only did he get me one of the hottest games going, Race for the Galaxy, but he did it just for me!!! Meaning, the rest of you poor souls just got stuff from a regular old Secret Santa, while my gift came from my own, personal, DogzardSanta!! That is just totally cool!!!

This is unreal. Here I am, thinking just how fortunate I've been, when I receive this cryptic message on GM:



Quote:
Be patient still my child, Christmas is full of gifts...

Am I dreaming? More to come?! Can it be?!

So, I come home today, from a round of my own Christmas shopping, and there in the mailbox is another gift for me! My Christmas cup doth runneth over. The child inside demands that I open it now. (so does my wife) But this time, I am going to be a good little boy, and wait until Christmas. Oh, the sweet agony of anticipation. My dreams will be haunted by visions, not of sugarplums, but of dice, action cards, victory point tokens, and bits galore! What can it be???
Quote:
OK. So far, I've received Race for the Galaxy, and an as yet, a still unknown surprise. Now, today, I get another GM from DogzardSanta, which included a link to download The Christmas Wars.

This is almost too much. I haven't been that good this year, have I? I am overwhelmed by the generosity of my Secret DogzardSanta. A better Christmas I can not recall, and I know that I will never forget this one. It is said, and I believe, that it's not the gift, but the thought that behind it that counts. That being true, then for the thoughts that have come my way this Holiday, I am truly a rich and blessed man.
So, it's finally Christmas Eve, and I get to open my secret package. Well, actually Christmas Eve morning, but it still counts, right? Anyway, I tear it open, and there it is: Last Night on Earth!!! This goes way beyond generosity into..I don't know. I'm usually pretty good with words, but I'm feeling pretty speechless right now. Thank you doesn't begin to cover it, but it's all I have.

Thanks, Secret Santa...this will be great fun to play with my family at it was one of my Must Have games!

I also got Power Grid Expansion Cards as an extra! Cool. I wanted those very much, too.

Cheers and I'll toast you at dinner with the bubbly.

I just opened it this morning. THANKS SECRET SANTA! I'm impressed with myself that I was able to last until Christmas morning to open it. I think I'll have to break out my old brass horn in the shape of a dragon to complement all the riotous shouting of "Ave Caesar!" Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa,

I am truly humbled by your generosity. My wife can attest, I was struck speechless when I opened the box.

Although these words seem feeble to me after the reciept of such a amazing gift, they are all I have to offer.

Thank You!

Here's hoping that all your Christmas wishes came true.
Rest assured that this was beyond my wildest dreams.

Merrry Christmassss Everygamer and to My Secret Santa. Whom if I guess who it might be.....I'll see you at Prezcon '08
When things got settled down, my 5yr bundle of joy wanted to play my game before playing all of the games that she got!!! Needless to say, certain themes we not sure we wanted her to be exposed in a gaming sense...yet (call us mildly old-fashion). So we modified the rules to her liking. (I'll let the wife post the alt. kids rules). Btw here's the other game I got which I still unwrapped the cards yet:
Lightning: Midway – June 4th to June 6th, 1942

Oh yes, sweet christmas time

Thank you so much, Secret Santa, for giving me a game from the very top of my wishlist!

Also thanks for the purple meeplemeeple

Most of all thank you for caring, for shipping the gift to another continent, and for the thought and work you put down in your attempt to translate the note inside to norwegian!
It was great fun, thank you, thank you, thank you!!

(Plus I got two other games for christmas! Oh, sweet christmas time...!)

Leaping from my bed early on Christmas I torn into the gift my secret Santa sent me. Only to discover a note informing me that the elves are all zombies and Santa is an undead blood sucking fiend. I began sobbing uncontrollable realizing I’d been leaving milk and cookies year after year for the embodiment of evil. Luckily I looked deeper into the box and discovered Fury of Dracula and Zombie Fluxx! Thanks for the great games and for telling me the truth about Christmas my Secret Santa!

Thank you SO much for your incredible generosity, Sinterklaas! I'm a big SC fan, so I can't wait to try this out... Oh, and thank you for this as well:

Board Game: RoboRally


I've wanted my own copy for quite a while!

I only regret waiting for 12/25 to open everything - I didn't realize there was pepernoten and Sinterklaas music in there, too! I would've had a right proper Sinterklaasavond had I known.

My Secret Santa said he went off the reservation to get me a game because I called Samurai "elegant."

What he got me was Tigris and Euphrates. Woohoo!!! I'm looking forward to conning my wife and inlaws into a new game or two... devil

PS. Secret Santa, there was a Benelux Powergrid Map in the box as well. Thank you for that. My wife looked at it and liked the artwork. Gonna have to get that next!

Oh it's gonna be a Gamin' Christmas!!!!

Thanks so much!!!

In addition to Samurai, I received:

Board Game: Mykerinos



and


Board Game: Hera and Zeus



and


Board Game: Loot



and


Board Game: No Thanks!





And on top of it all, apparently he/she is sending something else from his/her homeland (Japan... I think. Or maybe Australia. Or Detroit).

I really cannot believe it. We are going to have SOOOOOO much fun today. I am so incredibly excited. I can't even begin to tell you.


Thank you SO MUCH Santa!

Our Secret Santa truly outdid himself. He and Mrs. Claus started by having Starfarers of Catan shipped to us, along with Race for the Galaxy and Cowpoker. Then, we received an airmailed package from Sweden that included not only Swedish-themed poker cards, but an assortment of small expansions to our favorite games, including Carcassonne: King & Scout, The Settlers of Catan: The Great River, and Puerto Rico: Expansion I – New Buildings. It also included a package of Cheapass games.


I have half a mind to assemble the clues that Santa left me, including a postcard from Goteborg in the package, to figure out his identity and set off to thank him and Mrs. Claus personally. Until I get some more vacation time, I'll have to express a heartfelt thanks from me, the Mrs., and all our gaming circle.

Merry Christmas Swedish Secret Santa!

Merry Christmas Secret Santa!!! I guess I really was a good boy this year as Santa sent me three games from my wishlist: Race for the Galaxy, Citadels, and Tichu.

As soon as all the presents were openned, the first thing we did was open Race for the Galaxy and fumble through a 4-player game. Love it - and I think we'll actually know how to play next time it hits the table (probably tomorrow or later this week).

Anyway, thanks so much to my secret santa, and to Tom and Aldie for setting this up. It was great!

Thank You Secret Santa for not only one of the top games on my wish list but also another ...

 


You were very generous and it is very much appreciated.

Have a great Christmas Santa!

I pulled into my driveway on Friday the 21st, at 5pm, to find a notice from my local postal carrier informing me that there was a package waiting for me at the office. The office which closed early that day, and wouldn't re-open until Monday morning. The misery of knowing that my Secret Santa's delivery was waiting for me less than a mile away, and being unable to get to it was almost unbearable. I was thrilled to find a copy of Ys waiting for me safe and sound early Monday (Christmas Eve - how perfect). I had played it at Origins this past summer and loved the game. Thanks SS. A great choice. Happy Holidays.

I got this "pirate game" from my US-Only Secret Santa (I joined both programs.) I was a bit concerned, but I got a note from Santa a few days before Christmas that something was coming and this got here the Saturday before Christmas!

It also had Lost Cities

Thanks US-Only SS!
