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!

My Santa is apparently craftier than I thought. I did not hear from him(her) at all. In fact, much like Virginia, I thought maybe there was no Santa. I went ahead made a purchase at Coolstuff so I would have something fun for the new year. It was a very small order, so I was surprised to see 2 boxes arrive at my door this evening . The first was my order, but the second... oh man the second. Not only did Santa give me a surprise (s)he pulled out all the bells and whistles.

Top of my list Archipelago I was ecstatic, but the box was big and there was more to find.



The next game I pulled out made me doubly excited as it was Tzolkin something I didn't think I would be able to get/find until way into 2013, but low and behold it was sitting there saying, play me. smile on my face was growing.

There was one more surprise.

Now here's something I've really been wanting to get. I play Game of Thrones more like a board game than a ccg, but I really wanted to get the Prince of Suns to round out the game. Low and behold The prince of suns will accomplish just that.

Thank you Santa, whoever you are. Thank you for your generosity, craftiness and making my New Year's very special. Now what to play first.

So my Santa went and got me something that is already seeing A LOT of play. I'd never played Summoner Wars before, and I already see why it's so addicting. Thank you Santa!

Also got the decks for Cloaks and Mercs, love playing Mercs.

And in addition there was a copy of Shazamm! in the box, a game I'd never even heard of, but have found to be surprisingly fun.

Thanks so much Santa!

A parcel just arrived at work and had some lovely gifts in it.

We lost this game a year or two ago and it's actually one my wife really likes and wants to play again so it's fabulous to have it back! Perfect gifts!

Santa was super nice and also included:

Chaos in the Old World: The Horned Rat Expansion

Carcassonne: Winter-Edition – Der Lebkuchenmann

And

Win, Lose, or Banana

My daughter immediately took apart the horned rat expansion and started playing with the Horned rat figs. (She's five, she tried to run off with the Vermin lord but I rescued him from her. She then wanted to open the main box but fearing for the demons safety I told her she could play with them when I was able to watch more closely and protect the Blood God from her).

Thanks again Santa!

I received my presents from my Secret Santa shortly after Thanksgiving. I was surprised to see them arrive so quickly!

When I opened the box, I was really surprised to see as much as there was inside. First, on top of everything, was a copy of


Stone Age: The Expansion,

which was lying on top of a copy of


Fresco,

which was lying on top of a copy of


Power Grid: Brazil/Spain & Portugal,

which was lying on top of a copy of


Tikal.

This was my first year in the Secret Santa program, and after seeing the generosity of my SS, as well as reading stories from others in the program, I foresee this as something I will be participating in for years to come.

Thank you, my Secret Santa!

So, according to my Santa I made it "off both the nice and naughty lists and on to the 'Bonus' list". But even with the advance warning I was still blown away by what he sent:



All four of the X-Wing Minis Wave 1 packs and 48" x 48" play mat and handmade asteroids. Here's a shot from the first game using them ( while waiting for the wrinkles to smooth out of the play mat).



Thanks Santa!

It was a great surprise a few days before Christmas. I received a package from USA, but from my (no longer) Secret Santa, who insisted in identifying himself...
China was a great gift. It will be an important contribution for my Asian-themed games and it was on a high place in my wishlist.

Many, many thanks, my BELGIAN "Secret" Santa.

May 2013 be for you an year plenty of good achievements and success!

What a surprise! This was only one of three! Totally not expecting the great generosity from my santa this year. Also received Wits 'n Wagers and Qwirkle. Didn't get any plays for Qwirkle in before someone proposed a trade for it, so it's already gone in trade for Carcassonne. What a great deal! Thank you so much santa, you made this Christmas one to remember.

Secret Santa - You are the best. At least, that's what my wife declares because she enjoys manipulating the forces of hell to destroy my prisoners. I mentioned that the two new hounds share both her natural hair color, and her recent black hair dye, but she was not humored from this observation. & 'Godzilla Stomp' is a perfect filler for my beer fueled buddies. Thanks SS!

Once again, the BGG Secret Santa sent along wonderful games to put under the tree. In my note to Santa, I gently requested games that worked well for two, played quickly, and didn't require heavy attention. [Specifically requested because my wife and I had a baby in November, and aren't super-able to get distracted by games at the moment. surprise] Santa outdid him/herself following the request.

Patiently waiting until Christmas, opened the 3(!) packages from Santa. First found Cartagena. Been on my wish list since forever, and I'd basically forgot it was there. Nice simple game, perfectly fits the requested definition.

Then, found a copy of Court of the Medici. Off my radar screen, but again, perfectly fitting with the request above. Well done.

Lastly, found a copy of Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small – More Buildings Big and Small. Hadn't gotten the main game yet, but the extension really appreciated. Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small is on my must-have list, and will get a copy as soon as I find one available. I suspect that Santa had the same trouble as me, and may have hope to send that along. Sometimes hard to find the new, hot game.

Thanks again to BGG Secret Santa.

I must apologize to my Secret Santa for posting this so late. My Santa was very prompt, but I had an illness in the family that took me away from my house and my gift for a while. Fortunately, things took an upturn and I when I returned I was very pleased to see that I had a Secret Santa gift waiting for me! After an extended time away like that, it was a very welcome thing to return to.

What made it even better was that I was finally able to get the FFG edition of Cosmic Encounter! It's already made it to the table a couple of times and I'm looking to see it there again soon.

Not only that, as if that wasn't enough, I also got Rockband Manager added in there! This'll be a great one for my family game nights and should be hitting the table by next week.

So thank you again, Santa! It was a really great thing to return to generous presents like this!

I traveled to the countryside for the holidays, so got my package only today. But man, that was a big box... Sorry, no pictures, I don't have my camera with me.
But inside was

d10-2 its expansion Thunderstone Advance: Caverns of Bane
d10-3 a copy of Verräter
d10-4 a gingerbread meeple
d10-5 a bar of chocolate, and it's dark, my favorite
d10-6 a nice personal message from Santa on a postcard that is an advent calendar (should I open all slots now at once...?)

Thanks very-very much, Santa! Can't wait to try these. The chocolate will be the first, that's for sure...

Santa got in touch with me in mid December to let me know that he hadn't forgot about me. He had noticed my interest in older games and decided to look to the past for my gift. Some of his elves were assigned to travel back in time with a time machine of Santa's own design to get my gift in great condition. Time travel of course is a perilous adventure as we all know and the elves were delayed in transit when some circuits on the time machine broke. Once they had the machine operable again, they returned to our current time with a couple vintage blasts from the past!

Today Santa's gift was dropped off and I was intrigued by the small, thin quality of the package (not visible here with only 2 dimensions).



After my first few tears in the wrapping paper I had narrowed down the possibilities to a very few titles from my wishlist.

Lo and behold!


Voyage of the B.S.M. Pandora and The Wreck of the B.S.M. Pandora

Each is a magazine game published by SPI in 1981 & 1980 respectively.



Voyage of the B.S.M. Pandora is a punched copy, but all the counters are present and in great shape as well as the magazine and map. In this game the player leads expeditions to the surfaces of a variety of planets. The player is looking to capture specimens of native alien flora & fauna while braving the hazards and perils of alien creatures and the environments.



The Wreck of the B.S.M. Pandora is an unpunched copy and in even better condition than the other. In this 1-5 player game, crew wake up from a hibernation to find their research ship is shutting down. They must restore they ship's systems before cold shut down freezes all life on board to death. Complicating their efforts are the alien specimens on board that escaped containment when the ship's systems shut down. Players must work to subdue and recapture the specimens or kill them while repairing the ship.

Small package - BIG gift!

I'm looking forward to learning each. As a guy whose gaming is dominated by solitaire titles recently and who has a budding appreciation for older titles I am thrilled to own both of these hard to find games in great condition.

Thank you Santa, whoever you are. I appreciate the thought and effort you put into my gifts. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New Year!
