Secret Santa names have been distributed and many presents are already flying on the postal sleighs around the world! I created this GeekList 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.

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 on the neighbor's porch?)

Wow the gifting has already begun, I can't wait to see what everyone gets!

(I am just using a generic Christmas game as a placeholder for mine until my gift arrives, at which time I will update it).

(Sorry, I accidentally added this as a comment to someone else's post instead of as an item of my own.blush )

A package arrived from my Secret Santa last Thursday. I debated whether to open it, and decided on a compromise: If it was wrapped inside, I'd leave it until Christmas; if unwrapped, I'd be all over it.

THEY were wrapped.cry

They look good, really good. I haven't opened them, but by the shape (and weight) of the box and the shape of the little package, I suspect what it might be. If so, it's more than I hoped for!

In any case, I'm sure it'll be "faboo". I'll post a follow-up when I've opened them.

He/She also included a note to be opened after the package, so perhaps there'll be a reveal inside or at least a hint as to his/her identity.

Thank you, TomVasel, for organizing this.
Thank you, KuhRusty, for facilitating anonymous communications.
And thank YOU, my Secret Santa!

I was slightly puzzzled today to receive a call from a bookshop called Island Books/Bookthrift to tell me that the game I had ordered was now in stock and ready for collection.

The thing was I couldn't remember ordering anything from their shop, in fact I didn't even realise I could order from their shop, but remembering that this bookshop also sells a small selection of quality board games I began to put two and two together. As the shop is only five minutes away from where I work I agreed to pop down and collect it.

Awaiting me was a nicely wrapped present complete with a bow and a card. I have to say I was very impressed, my Secret Santa obviously went to a lot of effort to firstly find a game store near to where I live - I don't know how you did it as I don't think they have a website and books are their main trade, but secondly you got the present wrapped.

As it's wrapped so nicely I couldn't quite bring myself to break with tradition and open it before Christmas so it's now sitting under my tree. A really huge thanks to you Secret Santa - just receiving the present made my day. meeple

Ok. I was very confused. As mentioned below, I had a tracking number from Boulder Games, and hadn't placed an order. Box didn't get delivered on Friday, and I had to wait till today...

So imagine my surprise when my wife called and said the Postal Service dropped off a BIG box from New York.

So I still had no idea what was coming from Boulder Games...

But I can't wait to open the boxes (yes, boxes). The card said they were from my SS, but weren't my real present. They were just sitting around...

This was the first one I opened. never heard of it, but it looks like a kids type game, which is great. I'll check it out later because I then opened...

Had this once, but got a good trade offer for it, so I never played it. I have been looking at this appear on Tanga, and at the FLGS, but hadn't found myself getting it again yet. Very nice.

Also had a box of Truffles & Buffalo Wing sauce from Frank & Theresa's Original Anchor bar.

I loved my haul. I can't believe my SS did this...

Got home from work today, and wasn't surprised when I saw several packages at the front door. I've been doing a lot of online ordering for Christmas presents, so I expect packages every day between now and Saturday. What surprised me, though, was to see a box all the way from SWEDEN!! Inside was this great game, plus a little wooden horse.

I'm a HUGE fan of tile-laying games, and this one is definitely the cream of the crop. Thanks so much not-so-Secret-Santa!! He had to put his name on the customs form, so I didn't have to do much detective work!

OK, not really, but I did get a box from FedEx last week, and letting fate be the judge, I opened the box to find a very nicely wrapped present inside. That means I don't get to open it until Christmas. I have no idea what it is, but it makes the coolest rattling sound when I shake it.

Yipee! My SS package arrived tonight! I had already decided to open the shipping box, so I ripped right into it, only to find a very nicely giftwrapped stack of goodies. There appears to be a large, hardcover book on the bottom, on which sits a large card, and two boxes! It's all tied up with a wide, red ribbon and bow. Very nice, SS! I have it sitting under the tree. Time will tell if I can wait the full week until Christmas.

And the name on the shipping label isn't a registered BGG user. I did some quick location snooping, but the identify of my SS remains a mystery. Perhaps there will be a clue in the card. Whoever you are, thank you so much for the nicely wrapped package!

What a great idea for Christmas! My secret santa sent both Goa, which I am excited to have, and a game not on my wishlist but very welcome: the 1910 Expansion for Ticket to Ride. Thank you: this was very thoughtful. And, yes, I opened it before Christmas before I realized what it was. That's okay, because I might just wrap one or both games and put them under the tree, and enjoy opening them all over again.

It all started two weeks ago, when I received an anonymous gift of geek gold from my Secret Santa so I could get an avatar. Thanks, Santa. Oh, and The Cheat says, "Meh!"

Today, I was excited to see a package at my front door. It was from Santa. It said so right on the return label. Apparently he now lives in Virgina. I anxiously waited for my wife to come home as she'd be upset if I opened the gift without her.

Inside the box, I found a neon-green gift bag with hot-pink tissue paper. I'm thinking Santa may have a little trouble with his color coordination, but he sure made up for his presentation skills with the contents of that bag.

On my wishlist, I listed Zendo, with a comment saying while the box set looks nice, I'd be happy with just a set of Icehouse_Pieces. I've been intreagued by the Icehouse system for a while, but I've never went ahead and bought any pieces.

I open up the bag and I was very excited to see the boxed version of IceTowers. Four Icehouse stashes, ready to go! However, that was not all, as Santa also included:

-a fifth stash of Black Icehouse Pieces!
-the book "Playing with Pyramids"!
-a set of small grey Icehouse caps, so I can play Volcano!
-a printout of the rules to Zendo, as well as a bunch of white, black, and green stones to use while playing Zendo!

Thank you, Santa. You are so kind.

My only problem now is to choose which Icehouse game to play first!

My fiancee called me to say there was a box waiting for me outside our front door.
I begged her to open it. She said she was going to open it, and then wrap it up again and hide it with our presents.
I made it home before she had the chance to break out the tape and scissors.

Thanks Secret Santa. Great choice.

Secret Santa sent the only of my "Must Have" games that seems to be available in Australia. Thanks dude! I don't know why this was on my wishlist at all, I didn't expect it to be available. We've played 3 times already and it's quite a cunning game.

Then this morning another parcel arrived - Cathedral, from a different store. Huh? Two secret Santas? No, my girlfriend who's overseas being nice to me. I sure do like presents arriving in the mail all the time.

Thank you very much, Secret Santa!!

I was beginning to wonder if this would arrive before Christmas, seeing how I'm living here in Singapore. And of course, seeing this list grow everyday didn't help at all. But my mom called me at the office this morning to tell me that there was a package for me and I knew my gift was here!

I came straight home from work, and immediately found the package. I didn't get out of my work clothes, nor did I even bother about dinner. I just took the box, ripped it in half and found this gem inside!

I've been eyeing this game for a while now, but I haven't been able to find it at the local FLGS. And now I'm going to crack it open and get it on the table as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Secret Santa. I know the postage here to Singapore must have cost quite a bit. Merry Christmas!!
