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!

I've been to a couple of countries for the first time in 2012. This year's secret santa sort of celebrates my mini world tour: My santa is from Italy, the main game I received is Mr. Jack in New York. But it is the second game what made me set a new aim for next year: Despite all the terror it offers, I'm going to go to outer space!

This was what was waiting for me after I got home from my Thanksgiving backpacking trip in Arkansas! Very awesome!

Expansions are one of the things I hate to buy for myself because I always think, "why buy and expansion when I can get a totally new game?!".

Arkham is a great game and this just makes it better. Thanks SS!

Received my package this weekend from Santa, but it is wrapped! Oh, clever Santa. I await December 25 to open this gift.

Thanks ahead SS!


And it is OPENED!
And boy was I happy and surprised! I thought looking at my two packages I had Hansa Teutonica and its expansion board, but nope. Sun, Sea, and Sand and the first Steam expansion!

THANKS Secret Santa! Awesome job!!!!

Well, apparently I've been really good this year because Santa sent me a really nice stash!

After a bit of taunting,...including a warning to behave and a link to the trailer for the film, Rare Exports, I received my package. I wasn't going to open it right away, but my wife opened it by mistake and I couldn't resist.

Santa sent a nice variety of stuff including Eclipse, Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War (which I hope to convince my wife to play), and Wildlife Safari (which should play well with my daughter)...something for everyone!

Anyway...thank you Secret Santa and Happy Holidays! I really love my gifts and can't wait to get them to the table soon. Your generosity is much appreciated.

P.s.
Thanks for putting Rare Exports on my radar...great quirky film!

Ooooh package waiting for me at my neighbours when I got home. Happy as a child I opened it. First out a nice christmas card from Santa, including the text 'Something else is on the way'. I like those kind of messages

Unwrapping, I found a game I did not ask for! But that is actually a good thing, because I told my santa that besides my wishlist, I'm also open for surprises in case he thought I should play a certain game.

Out came :
The Resistance: Avalon


A game I actually didn't have on my radar. Have doubted Resistance in the paste, but theme was not really my thing. This however seems to be just the thing I would buy if I'd known about it! Awesome surprise. Thanks alot Santa.

Also included :
The Resistance: Avalon Promos

In the past three years I did not participate in the event but rather watched my husband through it for my own vicarious pleasure. This year, however, having decided to emulate, I signed up. My BGG Secret Santa did not taunt me but was very kind in sending an illuminating guidance message concerning my wishlist.

So, this morning, five minutes after the delivery of a book I had ordered, there was a knock on the door. I was not expecting anyone else. It was Fedex with a pretty large box; My Secret Santa had kindly informed me about the delivery a few days ago so my heart and brain started racing... could it be?

The package was from Italy; I have ordered things from there before but not for a while, so I wasn't expecting anything... and did I mention, it was a pretty large box!

Not wanting to make the mistake of accidentally seeing any pressies before Christmas morning, I carefully start digging in the packing. I soon get a glimpse of wrapping paper. It is gift wrapped, so then I vivaciously attack the box.

Out of the box comes...

Not one...wow

but two gift wrapped boxes...wowwow

and eight Fantasy Flight card sleeve packs!!!wowwowwow


If I was a teenager I would be going bananas but, being an adult, I just stood there flabbergasted and my next thought was to set the Christmas tree up!

So now my Christmas tree is adorned with two pretty gift wrapped boxes and a lot of sleeves also neatly wrapped in a package of their own!

Dear Secret Santa, thank you very very very much!!!

Merry Christmas!

Just arrived today. The packaging was beautiful gold paper with a sturdy silver ribbon - classy.
After getting and e-mail with instructions to open, I did so to find:
A much wanted copy of Eclipse!
Yeah!!
Thank you,
Secret Santa

Eclipse has been played once now - well enjoyed 6 player game which I won, though mostly through the luck of having a turtle to one side and the victim of an aggressor on the other (who I later took advantage of as well).

Then came back from a great week cross-country skiing to find that my neighbors don't steal packages which sit on front porches for a week. Additionally, this box was a 2012 Secret Santa SECOND GIFT!!!

I opened it and in was another #1 ranked game of mine:

Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar


and

Power Grid: Québec/Baden-Württemberg


Proof that I got the best Secret Santa ever!

So...Santa dropped a large package off on my step earlier today.



I was quite excited to say the least. I took my micro-katana and cut and sliced and found on the inside:



One had an especially intriguing note:



So, I was all for waiting, as they are the only element of holiday cheer in the house right now. My wife wanted to open them up immediately so we could decide how to proceed, so maybe we'll compromise. One tonight, one after my last final, and one on Christmas. The last one of course Santa!

Thanks so much Santa...I can barely restrain my wife.


Edit 1:
Ok, so during some down time this evening, I decided to open the biggest one. Lo and behold:


Santa said he had been working together with Thrifty Santa. Incredibly audacious sir! I was happy to get it to say the least though. I will be giving it a runthrough with my wifey after the baby is asleep. Thanks for the luck with the finals. As a grad student I actually only have one. I pretty much have the other class finished, but there is some presentation stuff to figure out.


Edit 2:
Well, I did not make it till Christmas.

Instead on Thursday I caught the flu, like a real champ. gulpgulpgulp So, to uplift my spirits I opened them all up. The second gift was a perfect unpunched version of Wizard's Quest.

This copy won't get played till I get back to Indonesia (now scheduled for March), since another local gamer has a more used copy, but I am excited to read the rules and give it a whirl soon.

And the final game to be opened, was the titular Reds! The Russian Civil War 1918-1921. I read the rules, punched it out, and it is on my table right now for a solo run. Initial impressions are varied, but I'm definitely learning the system which is not difficult.

After Santa told me my package was on its way, I would run to the door every time I heard a truck pass by.


Finally! After a long day at work this was a great surprise! And since my Santa didn't have a note about waiting, I decided it would be alright to open them early


Included with my gifts was a $5 gift certificate to Miniature Market!


I made my husband guess what they were...he had no idea



The first one was Summoner Wars which I've heard nothing but good things about!!

The second one was Mage Wars Arena another game I've heard was really fun! I really look forward to beating my husband in both

Thank you Santa for not only making me a very happy girl, but for making my husband happy happier as well!!

Received the box today! Unfortunately, I assumed that I would be getting my gift around Christmas - when I would be 3 hours east w/ my family -, so I have to wait until Christmas to open!



My mom got excited by the rattling inside, though, and had to see how many boxes there were. Heehee!



Looking forward to the 25th, Santa!

Edit: Got all my gifts! Holy crap!

Arkham Horror, Power Grid and the Quebec Expansion, and a game we hadn't heard of called Survive!



This is an amazing set of gifts and I can't even come close to expressing my gratitude. I'm really looking forward to playing these with my family and friends! We're still deciding what to get with the $5 miniature market gift certificate too.

Got my SS gifts today. I was pressured to open the box by the family. whistle FedEx dropped the package off at the neighbor's house. He brought it over after dinner. Yay for CoolStuffInc. In addition to the games I got the gift card too. (They did leave the senders name on the package). THANK YOU!!. wow Glad I was good and didn't get coal. Got all games at the top of my list. WOOT! After opening the box and taking out the games the kids went nuts playing with the peanuts. Even at 14 and 11 a box is a good gift for them.



Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game – Fame and Fortune
Needed this one. Don didn't bring his over the last time we gamed and we didn't want to play without it.

Small World Realms
Another winner. I made a copy of this PNP a few years ago, Random Map Expansion (fan expansion for Small World).

Sheepland
The trifecta. I was thinking of getting this one to play with the wife. She isn't a gamer but plays a few games. She is a knitter and spinner so loves sheep.

THANK YOU Jennifer and Jacen...er...Secret Santa.

I had an awesome Secret Santa this year! I got three games off my "must-have" list and i look forward to playing them over the holidays with my family.

I have a future son-in-law that's a graphic artist and big comic fan. He's going to love playing this with me. And, the whole family are co-op fans!
Sentinels of the Multiverse


This quick, easy to learn game will get everyone to the table.
King of Tokyo


And, I love the theme and artwork of this auction game.
Fleet



I got to play each of these at bgg.con and enjoyed them all. Sentinels will be my favorite of the three I'm sure because of how cool the theme is and the co-op aspect. But, they're all great games. Thanks Santa, you did a great job and were very generous!!

I do not know what it is but it has arrived.

I can only assume that because it came from my SS it is "The greatest gift"


My wife placed it under the tree and I can not open until Christmas Eve.wow I just don't understand the woman some days shake

UPDATE:
after 18" of snow i was told I could open the game and I find Tulipmania 1637

THANKS SANTA
