Please note - I have removed all old placeholders from this list. Please only use this list to record the receipt of games actually received from your Santa.

Only use placeholders to let your Santa know you received your package but are waiting to open it. When you actually open the package, please update the entry with the game(s) you received and express your reaction for your Santa. Please let me know if you experience any problems with this via GeekMail. Sorry for any confusion...now on to the list:


Since we just got our Secret Santa Targets assigned --

Last year's episode of "Look what my Secret Santa sent me..." was well received, so I am creating the same list again for 2007.

I originally posted this 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. If you plan on using this list, you may want to make a note on your profile so your Secret Santa knows to look on the list for your receipt and 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 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 unclaimed on the neighbor's porch?)

(I am just using a generic Christmas first item as a placeholder for mine until my gift arrives, at which time I will update it with the real gift). In case you were wondering - yes, I do have a probably unfounded fondness for this holiday.

Now for the big question - do you open the gift or allow it to taunt you from under the tree until your local Christmas/Holiday gift opening?

My Secret Santa gifts arrived today, nicely wrapped courtesy of Boards and Bits. I will try to avoid the temptation to open the gifts until Christmas. I think I know what the gifts are, but I may be completely wrong.

Of course, Santa, if you really WANT me to open the gifts before Christmas, I will be happy to oblige. Just let me know.

Thank you so much and I will update when I open the gifts.

EDIT: I managed to wait until Christmas morning before I opened my gifts. I received Power Grid and the Power Plant expansion. Thank you very much Secret Santa! Merry Christmas.

No WAY!
I just received a taunt from my Santa yesterday, saying something should be arriving on December 4th. Ok, cool. But I get home a 4 o'clock today and FeEx had left a copy of Zooloretto on my doorstep.
As it wasn't gift-wrapped, I had to play it (sorry), and it is as good as I hoped.

Thanks!

Oh Santa!

I got an email that Boulder Games had expedited your gift so I checked the arrival date. Imagine my surprise when I found it was today and it had already been delivered! You have impeccable taste in games as this is probably my favorite played but not owned (till now) games. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I am wondering about your little note that said to keep looking after one box arrives. I can't imagine what to expect if there is more. I can't wait to get people around a table for this game.

YES! My Secret Santa Rocks. kiss

You see, I had to open my Secret Santa Pressie early, as I tend to get money from my folks, in-laws etc. and they all tell me to buy my own present. This way I get games instead of SOCKS! yuk

So, I had to open the gift to make sure I didn't double up. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!) Turns out that the "GAME I'D LOVE TO HAVE" that my Secret Santa Sent isn't even AVAILABLE in Australia yet!

So, needless to say, My Secret Santa Rocks!

Thank you!

My Secret Santa gift arrived today. In the box was LNoE (I'm super stoked) and 6 smaller gift wrapped boxes including one to my wife, listed as: To-"Yahtzee Lover". I will do my best not to open any of the other wrapped gifts, but the wifey opened hers already (a copy of To Court the King), and even though she's not excited to play it, I know that I am, and once we do play it, I know she'll love it. My kids loved the way that you threw in the huge lot of Atomic Fireballs with the packing peanuts. Even as I'm writing this, they're going through the box, making sure they got every last fireball out.

You were truly a great SS, and even with the 4 geekmail clues I couldn't figure out who you were until I had the box in my grubby little hands. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Glen. You were not only a great Secret Santa to me, but also to my wife and kids.


Edit:Finally got back to let everyone know what the other 5 items are. Fraud Squad, The Testimony of Jacob Hollow, Employee of the Month, Portable Adventures: 8th Grade, and a copy of Portable Adventures: Lair of the Rat-King. Thank you so much Glen and best wishes for your new year!

WOO! HOO! MY GIFT(S) ARRIVED!

THANK YOU!

A box from boulder games... I don't recall ordering anything from there... o wait... It's so exciting!

I haven't opened it yet but I'm sure it will be great. My plan is too wait but every day since it arrived the brown box has been tempting me. 22128 0 more days! I don't know if I can hold out.

EDIT: I'm biting at the bit here. This is tough. It taunts me everyday. Is there a group for this kind of thing?

You'll be happy to know my wife opened the package while I was not home and wrapped your gift for me. She has vowed not to tell me the contents inside.

Oh this is soooo awesome. I got Doom. Thank you very very much secret Santa I can't wait to play this.

I got a message from my Secret Santa yesterday letting me know that something would arrive today to help pass those cold Moorhead nights. I am happy to report that I have a whopper of a game to pass those ever-so blustery nights! World of Warcraft! THANK YOU SANTA!!!!
I got home from class to find a package from Boulder Games sitting on the living room table and one of my roommates hovering over it. I asked him to open it for me and see if it was gift wrapped. I knew it wasn't wrapped when I heard his reaction to what was inside. He called another one of my roommates to show him what was in the box. They both agreed that they would love to play the game and the peer pressure became too much and I had to see what Santa had brought. We were all pumped and started punching out counters immediately. Unfortunately, reality caught up with us and we remembered that it was the week before finals, so the first game would have to wait.
Last summer I got to try this game at a friends house, but we never got a chance to finish. We ran out of time trying to figure out all the rules. By the time things really got going we had to stop and head back home. I really enjoyed the game and have longed for another chance to play it. I even got a few images uploaded from that first and only game here on the Geek.

Thanks again Santa! You have spread a great deal of Christmas cheer!

BattleLore: Dwarven Battalion Specialist PackMy wife was so excited about my Secret Santa gift, she called me at work to ask if she could open my rather large box. What did she find inside? Not one BattleLore expansion, but 4!!!!!!!!!!! Dwarven Battalion, Goblin Marauders, Goblin Skirmishers, and The Hundred Years' War. How cool is that. On top of that, my recently turned 2 year old got two gifts as well. On top of that, Santa included two very yummy bars of fancy chocolate.

Tis the season to be Merry!!!

A package waiting for m when I get home? From a games company I can't remember the last time I've ordered off them? This smells of Secret Santa.....

Well, it was Secret Santa..... With 2 presents in his sack.

Nodwick: THe Card Game and Power Grid Power Plat Deck 2.

I nearly fell over laughing when I saw the Nodwick box it is going to bring many hours of sadistic fun.

THANK YOU SANTA!!!!!

Santa may be in trouble.

Santa sent me a note a few days ago to tell me that he had sent me something via Fed Ex and that a fellow gamer would also be sending me something. This package arrived today, lightly crushed by the postal service.

Normally, I'd be hopping mad, but in this case, it meant I had to open it. After all, what if the contents had been ruined by their careless mishandling of this valuable cargo?

I opened the box only to find a neatly wrapped and clearly undamaged package inside. It looked like I would be denied after all. Luckily, my wife was on hand and insisted that I needed to check for hidden damage.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the gift wrap and found a lightly used copy of Corda! I've had this game on my wishlist for 4 years and I search for it on and off but I never seem to find it for sale. Now here it is, in my hands, ready for me to play.

My enthusiasm must have been contagious as I managed to convince my wife to play it with me. (She's not a gamer). We retreated to the game room and managed to get in a play of the multi-player game. I am confident that she didn't like it as well as I did. I can't wait to get some of my gamer buddies over to give this one a try.

Now Santa may be in trouble. It's going to be very difficult for him to equal the gift I already received from his "helper".

Thanks Santa and special thanks to his helper for making this a very memorable Secret Santa for me!

Thank you so much, Santa!!

I had ordered a lot of stuff online for Christmas, so I wasn't surprised when the FedEx man showed up with several packages.

One of the packages was from Thoughthammer and I thought to myself, "wait, I can't remember ordering from them...." but, frankly, I figured as soon as I opened it, I would realize that, oh yes, I bought such and such.

So, anyway, I opened the package and here is Hive.

"hmmmm, wait, did I buy Hive again? I bought Hive for my nephew last year...."

then, next is San Juan: "what the heck???"

So, finally I look at the receipt!

"EEEeeeeeee! It's my Secret Santa Gift!!!"

My SS also included two expansions of Blue Moon and, man, we are totally psyched!! My son was jumping up and down, and so was I.

We play a lot of Blue Moon, but we didn't have any of the expansions yet.

Thank you so much Santa!! You did an awesome job!

And I love my custom Thoughthammer dice, too--SWEET!!!

My total haul:

Wow, did my SS do a good job...

I promised my girlfriend that I wouldn't open my SS's gift until christmas. I received a box at the office, thinking it was from the Festivus Math trade and from the size of the box was sure it was my box of 3 games... But, wait, the game is gift wrap... Wouhou! My SS's gift and it's all wrap up.. The first gift to go under the tree this year (yes I won't open it)!!!

Didn't expect to received it this early, but I can hold... I know I can, it's so much fun to receive game at Christmas!!

But wait, there's another smaller package, and another one!! And a card!! I received 3 gifts from my SS!

Wow, they are all under the three, so that means that until christmas, no more trading or buying games until I know what these 3 games are.

Thanks a million Secret Santa, I really appreciate it. And because of you, I will be a little extra generous to my target. I was sending it on friday... But I think I'll add a little to the lot.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Is it me, or is every year, the gifts are becoming bigger and bigger!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!

UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE
I finally opened my packaged, WOW! Thank you thank you, thank you. I really enjoy card games, so the add-on for Bang! and Killer Bunnies were very welcome. We have a big games of Bunnies coming up next week.

But, to get Schrille Stille!!! I don't have enough words, thank you so much. We already played 4 games and my family really likes it. I had a tough time finding it without paying a fortune including shipping... Is it true that some copies were available in the US??

Anyway, you did make my Christmas and I can't thank you enough.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ca$h'n Gun$ and Ticket to Ride Switzerland! I couldn't believe it, I was sooooo excited! (and if I could have figured out how to get the picture up of TTR Switzerland I would have!)

I can't wait to travel around with the Swiss, then rob a bank and shoot at my friends to take there loot!!!!

And if you see this Santa, Yes I did learn everything I need to know in Kindergarten! They taught us how to read rules at a very early age!
(man google is a powerful tool!)

Thank you Secret Santa! You were wonderful! I hope your santa is as generous as you!

Got home from a really tough day at work today to find I had received a package slip from world of boardgames. Didn't remember I had ordered anything from them recently so I thought that just maybe it might be from my Secret Santa...

...and it was
Was going to ask my girlfriend to open it to see if it was wrapped since I don't want to see what it is accidentally but it was all wrapped up in nice Christmas paper.

Thank you so much Santa for remembering me here in the cold north!
I will go to Paris over the holidays so will open the package on the 21st just before we leave. Hope that is OK oh jolly one?
Thank you again and may you have a very merry christmas whoever you are!

Jonas

Edit: So sorryblush but couldn't wait any longer. Needed someting to look forward to this week so tonight tore into the wrapping paper only to find "Twilight Struggle"
Am really floored by the generousity of this gift and am now really looking forward to playing it but that might have to wait till after christmas anyway. We have just played 1960 a few times now and really wanted to try this one too.
Again, thanks so much Santa, You're awesome!

May you and your loved ones have a
Very Merry Christmas!

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

On my doorstep this morning was a box from FunAgain Games. I opened it before I stopped to think (hey, it was morning...)

Not just Oltre Mare, but also Queen's Necklace!


Since I had told Santa that the best possible gift would be a game that I had never played but would enjoy, and since both games look right up my alley, I will say that

I have a wonderful Santa!

Thank you!!!

[And there was even a mysterious deliberate hint as to their identity -- but the wonderful folks at FunAgain snipped out the truly incriminating parts of the packing slip.]

P.S. My US Secret Santa has sent me a 20-digit number. Thanks! I love numbers! :-) meeple :-)

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

Time to test my willpower. My Secret Santa parcel arrived today, having completed its long journey across the Atlantic, but I must resist and save it for Christmas Day. We haven't even put our tree up yet, but Santa can rest assured it will be the first present underneath it. I'm excited - especially as the customs declaration says there are three games inside!

Thanks Santa, your efforts are much appreciated. I'll update this on Christmas Day - I hope you too can wait until then.

A Game of Thrones (first edition)

Wow o Wow o Wow. Not only did my Santa get me A Game of Thrones a game that has been on my list ever since I read the books, but also



Another game that I have been after since it won the Spiel award this year.
Plus two expansions for Zooloretto, the Extra Enclosures and the building yard ones.


Santa, Whoever you are you have made my day, week, month. This is the first time I have done a BGG Secret Santa and you have made it THE best board game experience ever.

Cheers mate, whoever you are I hope you have a great christmas.

This AND Rumis+. At European prices! My Secret Santa has been very, very generous. Thank you SS. Big, big smile----->

I am afraid I could not wait. They are open already and I have just played a game of Rumis with my son.
