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!

This holiday season I have a lot of things coming to me by post.
(Some gifts, also I seem to be a rather lucky participant on Generosity Chain here on BGG, etc.)
So went to post office expecting a pillow and some Chocolate from Holland.
Apart from all that I got a misterious game size packet.
I just knew that it must be from Secret Santa (it was from Poland-Iwas not expecting anything form Poland)

On the way home I tried to guess whats game is it. But could not place the packet size with any game I have put on the Wishlist this year.

How surprised I was when I saw Gonzaga. This game has been sitting on my wishlist for 3 years now. It seems to be an underrated game with nice components.

I really hope to try it on Friday with my FLGS gaming group.

Thank You Secret Santa.

Booyah!! and woot, woot!!

Secret Santa blew me away with a giant box containing the fantastic-looking Mage Wars. He also threw in a nice gift card for CoolStuffInc.

I can't wait to get Mage Wars on the table. My son is going to be especially excited to give this game a test drive. This will be a happy holiday in my house.

Thanks S.S.

Oh my good... A package for me has just arrived!!!! My Secret Santa is here!!! I am so nervous...

I'll not be at home until Friday, but my boyfriend has picked up the packet for me. He has shown it to me, I have seen how beatiful it is, I have felt it....

But I can't touch it!!! The thing is that the packet is very sad because it has had a difficult trip from the North Pole to here. Cold. Snow. Blizzard... You know it. I believe the packet wish to "unwrap itself" - to be able to take part in the heat of a home, our home!

My problem is that I haven't got any instruction from my secret santa about what I should do.

What do you think?

How hopefully I am! How nevours I am! How happy I am!

It is just now Christmas at this house. THANKS, Secret Santa. Happy Christmas to all you!

My not-so-secret-anymore-thanks-to-Google Santa told me a week ago or so that I should be expecting a package from Amazon.de soon. And sure enough, when I came back home after a long day at work yesterday, there was the magic paper in my mailbox telling me there was something waiting for me at the post office.

So this morning, I put some stretchers in my backpack, ready to go get it after work. When I arrived at the post office, there was people queuing as far as outside the office. The long wait started... Slowly but surely I was getting closer and the nice lady exchanged my tiny paper against a rather big box. Amazon it was! Secret Santa it was! So I rushed outside, put the box at the back of my bicycle (hence the stretchers) and did my best to go back home as fast as possible on the snowy and bumpy roads of Lauttasaari, Helsinki.



Once the bike safely park in our building's garage, I rushed home to give the box to my girlfriend so that she can check if the games were wrapped or not while I was wandering in the kitchen. Wrapped they were not but the girlfriend fixed that issue. But then I started to hear strange noises, so I asked her what was going on. I came back to the living room to find the games gone! She had decided it would be too easy to guess what it was it seems and she hid them away from me. All that was left in the box was my cat.



Now all is left to do is to wait until the 21st of December or the 6th of January to open them. On the bright side, she bought me additional games for Christmas and my birthday as well (she was waiting to know what my Aussie Santa had ordered for me to make her order).

Anyway thank you Santa! It has been a lot of fun talking with you! I wish you a merry (warm) Christmas to you and your family!

UPDATE

Cracked open the package just before Christmas but had no time to update earlier. Inside of it was Myrmes! An amazing game I already had the chance to try before! Can't wait to do my first 2 players game with my girlfriend!



Thank you Santa!

Why hello USPS carrier, why are you delivering a box to me today? I'm not expecting anything? Oh, it's something from Amazon? How nice. Oh, and hey look, there's a game (well, expansion) inside, from the top of my wish list. What an excellent surprise. I think I know what I'm bringing to game day on Saturday...

Thank you Secret Santa!

Huge thanks to my secret santa this year! Equilibrion is a real gem that I've been obsessively watching for I guess a year now, drooling over that artwork... so beautiful.

That would have totally been enough but they were awesome to the 52nd degree, and also sent me the latest LOTR:LCG expansion which was a great surprise because I was somehow imagining it wouldn't be released until next year!

And BONUS they also got me a really cool D20 key chain (with the 20 facing, of course) which was a critical hit.

Secret santa... you are great! Thanks for bringing such cheer.

So there I was, just minding my own business, when suddenly, a blood stained letter with the following information scrolled on it was unceremoniously handed to me by what I swear were two midgets in a trenchcoat and a hat. So anyway, the letter read as such:
"My name is Furby. I am an elf, not the ridiculously cute, electronic toy that is making the rounds in toy shops around the globe. I am here to mention that my "jolly" boss, heretofore know as "Mr. Deadbeat," forgot your gift this year, so we elves chipped in and sent one at GREAT expense ourselves.

The problem was that we used some shipping service recommended by my cousin, Jean-Luc Picard, no relation to the real starship Captain, and now we don't know where your package went.

The other elves are currently mounting an effort to boil me in oil if I don't find the package, and even though I told them they should blame Mr. Deadbeat and his egg-nog fixation for forgetting your gift in the first place, they seemed to really like the idea of boiling me.

If you would be so kind, please add a GeekList item to the following link's Geeklist to confirm that you got your gift."

I looked up to see the man who had left me this letter had disappeared, leaving behind only his trenchcoat and hat, and leaving two sets of tiny footprints in the snow. I screamed as I ran back to the house. No elf must die today because of my neglect!

I dashed to the front door, not only due to the letter in my hands, but much inflenced by the fact that I had been standing in the snow in a bathrobe and boxer shorts. Hey when you gotta go, and the wife's in the bathroom, any snowbank will do. I tugged at the doorknob, only to realize in horror that I had locked myself out!

Panic stricken, I ran to the back door, taking out a family of four snowmen on my way, burying an unlucky squirrel and two hedgehogs in an avalanche they would never escape until spring thawed their frozen little bodies. As I slid past the door (now I regret icing that back stoop for "dramatic effect" when my wife took out the trash) I looked up at the clock, realizing that time was ticking away. I could already smell the toasted flesh of the elf, slowly being cooked in oil, which I imagined would smell like deep fried candy cane. I caught my footing on last year's christmas wreath, sitting forlorn and brown on the ground where it had been tossed aside like an oversized Mitt Romney poster on November 7th. I jiggled the handle, realizing the door was bolted shut from the inside (we had installed the bolt after the bear mutiny of '09). Freaking out a bit, I finally remembered: The chimney! I climbed to the top of the roof, and shimmied down the chimney as best I could with that thirty pounds of twinkie weight I'd put on like a bear puts on pounds for winter. Extinguishing my now smoldering deriare, I dashed to the computer and fired off an email... WHEW that was close...

I was excited to receive a note from Santa this weekend. I guess I was good enough to receive a gift this year from him and he told me that his elves at Amazon would be sending me two packages. So as you could guess the excitement made my sleep short this week waiting for Christmas to come. Well today after I got home this morning one of Santa's elves that was dressed as a Fed Ex person showed up with my first gift.



As I sat at my table looking at the package I was struggling if I should open it or not. Seeing that Santa had not said if it was wrapped or not I decided to chance it and I opened it. Well as you can see below it was not wrapped but I was so excited to see what I had been sent.


I hope that Santa will forgive me for opening this one but I will promise to keep the last present sealed till Christmas. Thank you for blessing me so much Santa.

I went to the post office today to pay my customs fees and pick up a box that according to the package number was from Germany. I'm waiting for an order from Milan Spiele that is about to arrive, so I thought that this was the package I was picking up...



I didn't realize then that it was a box from Spiele-offensive and not milan, so I took the invoice and read it and discovered it wasn't my order... It was my Secret santa gift instead, so my younger daughter and I opened the package and found the two games gift wrapped.



I haven't opened them, instead we placed them under the tree. I already know what games I got but they'll remain under the tree until christmas.



I can't thank Santa enough for such great gifts, Terra Mystica was high on my wish list, and I also got a great fast fun filler Bears!

Thank you very much and merry christmas!!!

Yesterday I received a big box from my Secret Santa! I was overly excited and could not wait to see what Santa and his elves put together for me this year!

Everything was so nicely wrapped and came complete with a very nice handmade Christmas card!

Although I usually wait until the big day to open gifts, I was instructed to open immediately and start enjoying the games!

Inside were:



I am speechless! Thank you so much Santa for being so generous and giving me the game I have had such a hard time locating, King of Tokyo. Sutakku was a excellent surprise as well and I am very much looking forward to playing these two awesome games really soon!

Thank you so much again! I really appreciate all you have done.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and yours!

1073. Board Game: First Train to Nuremberg [Average Rating:7.21 Overall Rank:910]

OK, opened a night early on parental orders, so in the Thrifty Santa box, I found:

First Train to Nuremberg!

Chaos Marauders!

A bag of Pica de Limon candies? Not quite sure what these are besides "local flavor" (Thrifty Santa is in NM); going by the ingredient list, this is going to be salty-sour-spicy?

Cool, thanks!

My awesome Secret Santa went as far as to get me this awesome LCG that I've been wanting to own since it was released on day 1.

But!

He also sent me this:

And it is the only game I was missing from my FFG's 'Terrinoth Collection'

So...

Thank you very much Santa!

I will be a good boy and wait until Christmas to open Android: Netrunner as you wanted.

After a worrisome month, I finally heard from Santa -- a very thoughtful Santa, who not only got me one of the must have games on my wishlist...

The Castles of Burgundy


but also a game not on my wishlist, which Santa and Mrs. Claus knew we'd love!

Lost Cities


Two excellent 2 player games for me and my wife!

Thanks Santa!!
