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?

Awesome! I appear to be the only one on the list (so far) that received this wonderful present from Santa this year! Thank-you very much Secret Santa, it's just what I wanted!

And I also got this:


w00t!

These have arrived just in time for our family's upcoming Christmas boardgaming event (our seventh annual Yule Spiel)!

Thanks so much, Santa!

Well, I hadn't heard a peep from my Secret Santa, and was quite curious when a large box showed up from Boards & Bits at my work. I knew I didn't have anything on order from them, so I immediately figured that it was from my Secret Santa. Upon opening the box, I found a large finely wrapped gift, which I immediately sat down on my desk.

I called my wife at work and let her know that my gift had arrived, and received approval to open the gift. Even with her approval, I didn't immediately open the gift, as I went through the mental process of trying to figure out what it could be from the size of the box. I was quite sure I knew what it was and decided that I would save it to open when I got home. My co-workers, on the other hand, were not so easily persuaded.

My package was soon confiscated by the bosses son (who I regularly game with) and he whisked the package to another room where three of my coworkers untaped an edge to the gift, found out what it was, and taped it back shut.

After being prodded about what I thought it was, and told that I "shouldn't go to Vegas anytime soon", I finally broke down and opened the gift to find Shogun, one of 7 of the games at the top of my wishlist. Even though my guess was correct, I was quite pleased, as I had only had the opportunity to play Wallenstein online and was looking quite forward to a face to face session with this highly rated game.

Thanks to my Secret Santa for a great selection.

I am so excited to play this. I have been wanting to try a cooperative game since I found out these existed. Days of Wonder does such a great job making games. I can't wait to play this work of art. Thank you SS (Chris).

I should also let people know for those of you following at home, I found out my SS when the first package arrived and had his zip on the box. Since the note had a poem and A Strange Aeon (Chris Tandlmayer) also had a poem in his profile. The first box was already recorded here and included King's Breakfast, a card with a wonderful poem and chocolates for me and my family. What a wonderful Santa.

Arrived on my doorstep 2 days ago. I'm in the Anzac secret santa, so I was surprised to see a box from America! Santa has a good elf network.

Very happy (and surprised) to receive this -- I didn't expect to get a game that's been o/p for 25 years! Thank you Secret Santa!

Huzzah! My Secret Santa gift has finally arrived!

I've already opened it (as advised a kindly and amusing email from Santa Himself(!!)) and have been greeted by the exciting sight of Hannibal: Rome vs Carthage (one of the top games on my Wishlist).

Thanks again, Santa! It is much appreciated!

P.S. I think my productivity for the evening is going to take a bit of a hit!! I mean, it would almost be cruel to the game not to take it out of its packaging, punch its tokens, and read its rules... Right?

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Secret Santa!

I was a bit worried that you'd just pick the first thing on my list. But based on your e-mails, it was apparent that you'd actually read my commentary in my profile about what kind of games I was finding out I liked and you picked the one that exemplifies those qualities.

Merry Solstice to you and yours as well!

Well, it's been rather a crappy week/month here at Casa del Kvetch, and while I'm usually very good about waiting until the actual holiday to open presents, circumstances dictated otherwise this time around.

So not only do I get 1960, which fills a giant hole in the collection, as I'm a political animal at heart, but also:



Thanks very, very much Shawn! I really appreciate it -- and I already know who I'm going to spring this game on. Profuse thanks!

(I'll have to get to work on that promised haiku.)

I got a message from Santa, telling me I would have a delivery (and not participate in theivery ) I looked forward all day to getting home from work.

And what do you know! I recieved a box from my secret santa!

My mom, however, found the box first, and the typed message on the box saying it was from my BGG secret santa!

After I foolishly told her what it was all about, she wouldn't let me open it! wow

I sllllyyyly told her it would be pre-wrapped, but she didn't trust me (sigh, silly mothers). She opened it, saw it and said "I read a book by that title!"


She then told me it was a barbie dress up game.

..Needless to say, I don't want to know exactly what book has barbie in the title, or why she's really dressing up, as my mom only reads books with "murder, mystery, or sex," so I think I will just wait until Christmas.

UPDATE:

So, I unwrapped my present and it was..Hungry Hungry Hippos!

A battered copy.

Wait a minute..

IT was REALLY Pillars of the Earth, my family just played a trick on me. How cruel.

And how awesome a game! Thanks Santa!!

I simply cannot believe it! My US Secret Santa sent me a geekmail stating he/she hadn't sent the gift yet because they were waiting for this weekend. So when my International Secret Santa gift arrived today, I felt it was o0nly fair to my US Santa to open it so they would know what I got. (...or at least that is the excuse I have been telling myself)

To my surprise, I found PITCHCAR and PITCHCAR EXTENSION #2!!! I am nearly speechless! This was a fantastic gift. I just wish I knew who my Secret Santa was so I could return the gracious thought! WOW!

My games, yes I said games, have arrived!!! My secret Santa let me know they were on their merry way yesterday and they arrived today. I never realized that Boards and Bits was so close to where I live. Great idea to order close by, very sustainable thinking! Canadians? are really astute like that!

Anyway Thank you Santa, you are very generous. I am graduating from Graduate School on Saturday and this is like an early present. I think I will open one for graduation (as we are playing games for my after grad. party) and one for Christmas........that is if I can keep up the willpower.

I will update this when I open them to let you know what the games are!

Merry Christmas!! Ho!Ho!Ho!.....oops I mean Ha! Ha! Ha!(PC Santa version)

Updated: I opened them both!!

La Citta and RA, two games that I have been wanting for a long time, thanks Secret Santa!!!!

I got home from a night out with friends and guess what was waiting for me inside the door? I hesitate to reveal this, because it may tip off my own "victim", but I got EXACTLY what I gave.
Power Grid AND Benelux

Which is fantastic, because it's exactly what I wanted and I had the hardest time packing it up and sending it away! How weird is that? Thanks Santa, you read my mind! Now to figure out the clues you gave me...

I opened the front door yesterday to find a large package from Funagain Games. I eagerly opened the box and dug through the packing peanuts to find...Der Schwarze Pirat... Cool. I''l have a blast playing this with my two nephews the next time they come to visit. I dug a little deeper and found:

Nice! This is a quick and fun game. It should see lots of action.

...I dug deeper still and found:

I played this game awhile ago and really enjoyed it. It looks like it's a good 2 player game, too.

Wow! I must have been really good this year. My Secret Santa is one generous Ho Ho Hoin' Hombre. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!

Well I came home today and saw a package from Funagain. Thought hmmmm did I end up ordering something from them. I had been looking there for something recently, but didn't find anything I couldn't get elsewhere.

Pondering what I must have ordered, I realized. "oh that must be my secret santa gift. But, it was from funagain and I didn't remember if they did a gift wrapping special. So, my wife opened it. She said it wasn't wrapped, so she's going to wrap it and put it under the tree for xmas.

Primordial Soup is the winner, or should I say I'm the winner with it?

Thank you! Ripped it opened and took a deep breath. IT's not as toxic as the other Made in China games as of late. Best thing is I'm half way through the rules and should be able to get it to the table this Friday.

Thanks again.

Mare Nostrum

This game was rather high on my want list because of all the amazing reviews I'd read on it even though I've never even seen it played. Which means I haven't talked it up much in front of my wife. Ny biggest fear is taht I would get a duplicate game and have to deal with one return or another, so to see this was coming in the mail was more than a guilty pleasure. And Santa even threw in an expansion to go with.

Then I made the mistake of showing my wife various lists on here, and she got the idea that I can't open it until Christmas. Oh well. Not like there will be a lot of gaming time available between now and then. And after that... a solitare session or two before I teach it to my friends.

Thank you, Gregarius. Happy holidays to you and yours.

Wow santa....Thanks so much for this great addition to my collection. You are awesome and quite generous. I can't wait to bring this one out to my group.

My wife "insisted" I opened it so that she could make sure she didn't double buy me a gift...yeah that's it.

Yay! One of my "Must Have"s! I was going to wait at least until I got home for Christmas break to get the package, but my family came up to see me sing Vivaldi's Gloria tonight, and they brought the package with them. So, I had to open it, and inside was my most wanted wargame! I really love Russian history, and hopefully my willpower can last out for another month of so before I buy another game
