Welcome to my 7th annual Secret Santa List. 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.

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:

"2011 List"

"2010 List"

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"

Further helpful hints:

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!

TWILIGHT STRUGGLE!!!!!
Thank you Santa! again!

Thank you so much Secret Santa! Just received this big box and me and Nora are both very happy!
I promised to wait for Xmas to open it, unfortunately what's inside it is not wrapped, so I can't even give you a peek.
But don't worry, Christams is coming!!!
Thanks again Santa, it's soooo big!
Edited:
Ehm... It was big, but in the end it was just one game. Not Santa's fault, obviously, (Santa we still love you) but they shipped it with a lot of paper around and we were misled to think it was more than one.
Thanks again Santa, let Xmas come!

First of all - I had wonderful Secret Santa this year. He taunted me from the very beginning. We agreed that I was to naughty to have reasonable gift, so I promised to make good deed everyday until Christmas.

Here is a list

But the most suprising was the gift. My board-game dream. I had it in my wishlist since years, with no hope to grab that game. Now it is mine, used, but in very good condition.

Good job, my dear Santa, you had to do more than some clicks in online store. I do appreciate.

Please admire the board - I made hi-res photo of the board and I will print the poster to my bedroom, now I will be more obvious that we are gamers family

This year, my Secret Santa took the time to send me some taunts. After a few messages back and forth, I was led to believe that a package was coming. Sure enough, there was a delivery for me that got there hours before I was leaving to go visit my fiance and family. I opened the box to find 2 wrapped gifts. I decided to wait to hear from Santa as to whether I could unwrap them or not, and instead packed them with my stuff to take along. This morning I was told it was okay to unwrap the presents, and that Santa was not done with me. So far, I received: Rune Age: Oath and Anvil and Summoner Wars: Guild Dwarves vs Cave Goblins















Thank you Secret Santa!

Hey, whats that under all those packing materials? Nothing much, just a copy of Descent: Journeys in the Dark (second edition) – Conversion Kit! Secret Santa you are awesome!

Today I found a package on my stairs.
Now I'm in a dilemma, being in both Secret Santa and Wargame Secret Santa.
There is no advice on the outside, to which it belongs.
I can't see who sent it to me (only santa's helper).
I don't know if the content is wrapped again.
I don't want to open it yet to not spoil the fun.

So if you are reading this:
Your package has arrived.
Thank you very much, Secret Santa



Lesson learned: knives are sharp, flesh is weak, cutting fingers hurt
But now I know it is from Secret Santa Grogs.



And here it stood during christmas eve:

Today I received a nice package from my Santa. I really have to guess what it would be. I'm going to keep it closed until December 25. It will stay under our Christmas tree.
Thank a lot already Santa!!

I'll post an update with Christmas when I opened my precious!



Uploaded with ImageShack.us


Update 26-12-12:


AND... WOOOW, thank you so much Santa. D-Day Dice with expansion Atlantikwall and Hanabi!!! You were very generous, thanks a lot! Probably we will play it this evening!!


I wish you and your family a Happy New Year and a lot of games!!!


PS. The weird formation of the package was a deception, there was a weird construction inside that was holding Hanabi :-)

Wow! Just wow! I was pretty much speechless when opening the Secret Santa gift.

My first time Secret Santa and my Santa has been very, very, very generous! Tonight the doorbell rang and my girlfriend rushed to the door. Sadly for her, the package had my name on it cool After taking some pictures first (and raising the excitement ), we opened the package and saw this:



and after that... even more...



(Twilight Imperium (Third Edition) & De Ontembare Stad & Cold War: CIA vs KGB).

Santa, you're the best! Thank you very much!!! laughlaughlaugh

ps: one game wasn't packed (KGB). I'm not sure, but i think that was a gift from thegamefreak? Thanks for that!

Today I've received a big box from a spanish games store. I wasn't at home so my neighbour, an old woman, phoned me telling that there was a package for me from a "strange planet" (the shop is called "Planeton Games").

I told her to pick up the box for me... and I knew that my Secret Santa was finally there!!!

So when I came home in the evening I found this box at home:



As far as I could I took it to my room with my wife asking about "the content and origin" of such box. She didn't remember all the Secret Santa staff I told her a few weeks ago (muggles... I mean, non-gamers!).

I opened the box, and I found this:



Oh, Oh, Oh! Here I go!!! A few words from my Secret Santa (for me Santa adopted a human aspect named "Roberta" )

So, I picked up tha box and this was it's look! Huge, red and wonderful!!!



And, finnally, I couldn't resist until Christmas so... this is what I found!!!



Antike Duellum and Stone Age!!! TWO WONDERFUL GAMES I LOVE!!! thumbsupthumbsupthumbsup

Santa - Roberta, thank you very much! This has been my first Secret Santa and I really enjoyed the experience. I promise I will play this games with my kids, wife and friends and I will always told them that both of them came from a person I do not know personally but I consider, somehow, a real friend. Please, believe me, you just gave me a real good satisfaction today.

Again, from the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU!!!

I have been itching to get both games for quite a while and I am so happy that I get to play them now. Plus I got the travel edition of Hive which means I have the expansions too!

I've been a naughty boy. I opened my present 34 days early - sorry Santa.

Thanks for the present. The elves must have worked hard, to make such a nice copy of Belfort. not even a tiny dent, and nicely wraped... for about 5 seconds. I promise i'll be good for at least 11 1/2 months from now.

Without instruction, I decided to open it this morning, and there it was, my very own copy of the classic Small World.

Wow, what a secret santa.

Got home after dinner at our friends house and my wife nudges a huge box and says, oh this came for you.

She asked if she wanted her to open if for me so the games wouldn't be revealed but I can her what I assume was a knowing smile and said I knew the games were wrapped inside (Shire games is a top notch service).

Upon opening the box I found a whopping three packages inside!! Thank you Geekret Santa, or Jordan the Elf. I haven't decided when they will be opened.
I know my wife is as intrigued as I was as she joined the gentle shaking ritual that must be done with all presents everywhere.

Pictures of the packages under our Christmas tree to come as my wife and baby are waiting upstairs for me to get to bed and off the computer. Had to slip in some gratitude first.

Okay picture(s) it is:

Dimensions are:
Large 7cm x 32cm x 23cm
Med 3.5cm x 22.5cm x 16cm
Small 4cm x 18cm x 13cm

Let wild guessing comense.
The small package I belive is a pack of cards in an insert my best guess is Agricola related as the box is about the same size as the G and Wm box.
The Large box doesn't seem to have an insert in but it does have some sort of bag of components. can't tell from gentle shaking if they are plastic or wooden.
Medium package, is a complete mystery!

We opened the Medium package in time to take it to London over the weekend. After some extreme present guessing (see posts below) I was fairly sure it was a new game and that it was Bohnanza but that didn't make it any less exciting!

We got in three plays of this over the weekend ranging from two to four players and we all really enjoyed it! It was a great choice by my Secret Santa.

Unfortunately, for me, my wife says I can't open the other two until Christmas day! .
However if I was going to guess I would say they were Troyes and the Belgium deck but only time will confirm this.

UPDATE
It's not Troyes!
Whilst home looking after our daughter on my own I have sneaked out the large box and steamed open one end of the big box. I gave my santa free reign and that is exactly what (s)he took. Thank you very much for the copy of Snowdonia! I have no idea whether I will like it I am sitting down to a read of the rules now while Bryony eats tea.
Seems appropriate as Cadair Idris was the first 'mountain' Bryony went up. (This summer) and that is in Snowdonia National Park!
Thanks again and the smaller package will have to wait until Christmas, sorry folks.

UPDATE
Only 3 weeks later and I can reveal it was something on my wishlist. Plus it was the NL deck too! Wow thank you Santa.
Already had a beating at the hands of the Ice Skate Sharpener. I'm sure I got side tracked by al the new cards though.
Looking forward to a really great year so once again sincerely thank-you very much santa I am very pleased with my packages (especially Snowdonia)

I got a call today today that I have a package on the way, the goy delivering it asked me where to find me. I was just a bit surprised, because I work at a boardgame shop and we use the same company for shipping, so I thought it was something work-related. But no, Santa came really early this year.
I tried to resist, because the games were in a nice gift-wrap and all, but it sitting next to me for a couple of hours was more than I could bear, so I package up. Santa was really generous, these are the things I found in the box:

- A Sentinels of the Multiverse Enhanced Edition
- A Sentinels of the Multiverse Rook City Expansion
- A Sentinels of the Multiverse Infernal Relics Expansion
- 3 Promo decks
- A gift card to the shop where the games came from (10% discount from my next order)

The game was in the top3 on my wishlist, so I am pretty happy right now I try to be strong and hold me back from opening the games till Christmas, but Santa if you read this: I can't promise anything...

could not take it anymore. "Do as you want, as long as you open them now!", was what she said.

So I did.

I am stunned and touched by the generosity. Now I almost feel bad for only sending one game to my target.

Mansions of Madness is the perfect gift since it is (was!) on my wishlist, but not very high. It is one of those games that I have had my eyes on, but probably would not get around to buy, since, well ... there are other games I want more. Perfect gift, I tell you!

However, that is not all. My Santa also sent me:

Rex: Final Days of an Empire
 


Bloody hell! An even more perfect gift! This game I am sure I would never have bought myself, but I sure do want to have it.

Santa. I love you. If Fasces ever leaves me, I will look you up!

My humble thanks for these perfect gifted games.

Happy yuletide!

While I was at work today, my wife informed me that there was a huge box that FedEx delivered for me. So when I went home, I busted it open. Along with Descent, I received the following:

Battlestar Galactica


Glen More


along with those, Santa mentioned "I have even slipped in a little one for those quiet days at the office." which turned out to be:

Onirim


I'm floored! My generous Aussie Secret Santa is fantastic! Thank you so much! I can't wait to get these on the table, and you can bet I will be bringing Onirim to work to play there!

Wow! My secret santa truly went above and beyond! I got a game I've been dying to play in Claustrophobia. But that's not all! The box was PACKED FULL of games!



Thank you Secret Santa! You have truly given us another reason to be thankful this holiday season.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!!

Thanks for reading me, I'm so lonely.

I'll be honest, I tried to figure out who Santa was working with this year. I used some clues (from the Seattle area and saw my first post to this geeklist) and incorrectly figure out who it was. I checked out the incorrect persons ratings list as I was told my gift was one of their favorites but they didn't get to play it a lot... I thought I had it all figured out, but I was way off!!! I also want to say I am so happy that I was wrong because I figured I was finally adding Dominion to my collection and I really didn't know how I was feeling about that because I'm not completely in love with that game. Thank you so much Santa, this and 7 Wonders: Cities will be great additions to my collection, I can't wait to get Castles of Burgundy to the table! I really appreciate the gift, this is perfect... but Santa always knows doesn't he?

I guess I did a good job of switching Susie Derkins and my name on Santa's naughty and nice list. I was taunted by my Santa this morning with hints of what was to come and to expect my package soon. Lucky for me the Grinch was nowhere to be found around my apartment (The delivery man just left my package out in the open). Not only did I get Takenoko which has been on my want list for a long time, but my Santa was very diligent and read that I mostly play 2 player games with my girlfriend. So I was very happy to see Famiglia, Battle Line, and Onirim. To top it all off my Secret Santa gave me a gift to hopefully get some of my friends who only like party games, to give something new a try Saboteur (Little does Santa know I love all things Dwarves).



Thank you Santa, you have made my girlfriend and I very happy (though she is scared her head may explode having to learn so many new games)

Happy Holidays Everybody!

wow My Secret Santa hooked me up with what a few excited play sessions (despite the dickens of a flu) are showing will be a new favorite. My family and homies this Thanksgiving and Christmastime will be busily conquering my planets with Cosmic Encounter and the Cosmic Alliance expansion. I am pretty new to designer games and this swap was a really neat way to engage with other geeks. Thanks very much!
