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?

OK, it is now official that MY Secret Santa rocks out loud! Not only did he get me one of the hottest games going, Race for the Galaxy, but he did it just for me!!! Meaning, the rest of you poor souls just got stuff from a regular old Secret Santa, while my gift came from my own, personal, DogzardSanta!! That is just totally cool!!!

Thanks, DogzardSanta! You are awesome!





Quote:
This is unreal. Here I am, thinking just how fortunate I've been, when I receive this cryptic message on GM:


Quote:
Be patient still my child, Christmas is full of gifts...


Am I dreaming? More to come?! Can it be?!

So, I come home today, from a round of my own Christmas shopping, and there in the mailbox is another gift for me! My Christmas cup doth runneth over. The child inside demands that I open it now. (so does my wife) But this time, I am going to be a good little boy, and wait until Christmas. Oh, the sweet agony of anticipation. My dreams will be haunted by visions, not of sugarplums, but of dice, action cards, victory point tokens, and bits galore! What can it be???


OK. So far, I've received Race for the Galaxy, and an as yet, a still unknown surprise. Now, today, I get another GM from DogzardSanta, which included a link to download The Christmas Wars.

This is almost too much. I haven't been that good this year, have I? I am overwhelmed by the generosity of my Secret DogzardSanta. A better Christmas I can not recall, and I know that I will never forget this one. It is said, and I believe, that it's not the gift, but the thought that behind it that counts. That being true, then for the thoughts that have come my way this Holiday, I am truly a rich and blessed man.

Thanks my friend, and a very Merry Christmas to you.

OK I am not kidding when I say this: while I have been awaiting my SS gift, I have speculated to my husband, "I'll bet I get Hansa, or else
Can't Stop" and here my SS from Sacramento has sent me both! Three cheers, thank you very much Santa, very generous, and I will spread the reindeer food for the mule deer that hang out in my yard!

Thank you Santa! My presents arrived today, with "do not open until Christmas" written all over them. I'm glad they didn't come early this month, cause I'd never be able to honor your wishes and I really do want to. I can wait one more week, I can, I swear!

To be continued...

Update: Well, my Secret Santa was very generous. I received Talisman, which is a game my husband and I will get a lot of plays out of, I'm sure, as well as two adventure expansions for Runebound and a copy of Last Frontier: The Vesuvias Incident. I hope to try that one this week. Thanks again Santa!

...and a curse.
mbmbmbmbmb
Please forgive me Santa...I couldn't wait! I came home late last night and found a package leaning against my door. Sure enough it was from a certain "Secret Santa" in Indiana. Do you have a separate office that you run outside of the North Pole, Santa?

I opened the box to find a funny card (which I hope was just a joke .) Inside the card was a personal note that I really appreciated, it showed me that you actually took the time to look at my profile and learn a little something about me.

Then I saw that the game was wrapped. "Should I open it?" I asked my wife. "Of course," she said. If I would have prioritized all the Must Have/Love to Have games in my wishlist, Thebes would have been top of the list. I really like the theme, and I'm a big fan of games with some luck in them.

I'm so thankful for your generosity Santa, and I really appreciate the kindness of your gift. This has completed the cycle and given me one more item to add to my geeklist, Why Secret Santa is the greatest!

632. Board Game: Squadron Scramble [Average Rating:4.06 Unranked]

I just got to the office this morning where I pretty large box awaited me! Squadron scramble was a small game that came unwrapped to satisfy the "instant gratification" part of me. This is perfect because my most faithful opponent - my seven year old son - is home with a fever today. Also enclosed are three other games, one for the little kids, one for the older one, and one for the Mrs.!! Also is some wonderful looking chocolate. As a University of Michigan alum, I should probably feel guilty about eating chocolate buckeyes, but I'll be sure to save some when my friends stop by to watch the national championship football game. That is, of course, if they last that long!

Thank you so much. This has enhanced our already blessed Christmas!

Update: Since my son was feeling so bad, he convinced me to allow him to open "the middle" of the three wrapped packages (sorry santa). BTW - the presents were wrapped in awesome "gaming" wrapping paper! We ended up playing two games of Through the Desert before he went to bed! When my wife returned from my daughter's ballet lesson, she asked me "what the heck has gotten into him. He sure must be feeling better". Thanks again Santa - can't wait to open the last two!! (and I have a game date with my wife for TTD very soon)>

Update #2



Wow - what a SS gift. My young ones have already loved playing with the chicken poo from Dancing ducklins, and I had a chance to introduce TTR: Europe to some friends over the weekend. Thank you so much santa!

This IS the game I received as my International Secret Santa gift all the way from New Zealand.

An International Secret Santa with a truely International flair for me this year. In previous correspondence with my not so Secret Santa David I had mentioned that I have wanted to visit his little piece of the planet for a long time now. At that time I had no knowledge that David and his family were about to bring that wish a little bit closer. This game is actually from New Zealand and is about New Zealand geography.

What a very appropriate and thoughtful gift I recieived. Thank you David, you and your family helped make this Christmas one of my most memorable ever. I hope you all had A Very Merry Christmas also.

Best of Luck to you and yours this coming New Year too.

This is just ONE of the games I received from my US Secret Santa. I have had this on my top 10 most wanted list since it was announced.

My US Secret Santa was also kind enough to send me



Shadows over Camelot

Yet another item on my top 10 all time wanted list.

I was also sent 3 smaller packages that contained the following items from a very cool novelty store with extremely unusual items located in Seattle, Washington. Check it out here: http://www.mcphee.com

http://www.mcphee.com/items/11700.html
to help with my Fantasy Fix no doubt

http://www.mcphee.com/items/11501.html
Santa might know of my heritage I suppose, but how? surprise

http://www.mcphee.com/items/M5688.html
The Bowling Air freshener with the Bowl-Aroma smell... this definitely reminds me of the bowling league I was on back in High School.

Some very fond memories in fact


Although it is known that Santa resides in the Pacific Northwest in the state of Washington. There are 109 PAGES of registered geeks from that state. I have made some progress in elimination but it is still going to take me a while to figure it out.

I really wish Santa would eventually reveal their true identity so I can atleast add him/her to my geek buddy list. I really enjoyed our correspondence, also got quit a few chuckles too, leading up to the delivery of your gifts.

Thank you so very much Santa for helping to also make this a most memorable Christmas for me. I hope you also had a Very Merry Christmas( warmed up and stopped snowing here, for now anyways)and the best of Luck in the coming new year too!!!!

Mark

My packaged has arrived, and I was so excited I opened it right away!

Yes, and many of you did likewise, too, so cut me some slack and wish me well.

My Secret Santa actually surprised me with two gifts, and they're excellent choices for the friends and family I play games with.

Wits & Wagers will shine at party nights, and GiftTRAP will see the table tonight at a Christmas celebration. What a pefect theme for the season!

Thank you, Secret Santa! I'm so happy and eager to play these games with those close to me. Naughtiness aside, Santa found me nice!

First, I'd like to apologize to my Secret Santa. I know you tried to deliver my gift for me yesterday and me forgetting you might show up did not leave out cookies and milk for you. So you left. With your game. And I had to wait.

But what's one extra day when we're talking about a week before Christmas? It got here and that makes me exceedingly happy. What makes me happier is the game I got!

THANK YOU not so SECRET SANTA!

Runebound has been on my wishlist for a while but I've been afraid to pull the trigger and now you've done that for me. I love Martin Wallace, I like Dungeons and I'm really excited about learning and playing this game.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

Just wanted Santa to know that I received my gift some time ago. It came beautifully wrapped - so nicely wrapped, in fact, that my wife forbade me to open it until Christmas. It looks too nice under the tree!

Happy Holidays, all!

--Edit--
Got to open it a few days early. Thanks Santa! I'm really excited to break this out at my next game night!

Well after watching your gift ride around in the local Purple elf truck for three days it finally arrived late last Friday night. I did not recieve Twitch but after haveing it so near and yet so far I think I have developed one. The package arrived from Thoughthammer and since I know they are not wrapped thanks to this list I have just placed the package next to the tree. Of course that twitch seems to come back every time I walk by it. Only a week to go. I can wait that long, can't I?

Thanks and I will update this when I open the package.
WHOO HOO- opened my package today and I received El Grande, the Decennial edition. Thanks Santa. Now I need to round up some players. I also received the Cult of the Rune expansion for Runebound. El Grande

It's here safe and sound through the 37cms of freshly fallen snow (on top of the 20cm last week). And along with it came the Friends and Foes expansion. Thank you so much. I hope the SUV transmission is compatible with flying reindeer sleighs .

I was planning on placing these under the tree but they arrived unwrapped so that went out the window quickly. The idea, not the tree.

Thank you Santa! Thanks to Secret Santa, I now have a copy of Princes of Florence. I've played this a handful of times, and was looking forward to adding it to my collection at some point. I never seemed able to trade for it, and now I don't have to!

And it came with a pair of cool Thought Hammer dice too!

Sorry I couldn't wait Santa, but I did send you that letter when I was eight saying I wasn't to be trusted...

Hey! I just received a phone call from my wife - a package from Boards and Bits just arrived, and inside (yes, I told her to open it) was a wrapped present. Both daughter and wife insist that the present is placed under the tree and not opened until the 25th.

So I comply.

The path of least resistance and all that



Thank you, Secret Santa!

POST-CHRISTMAS UPDATE:
I received The Princes of Florence from my Secret Santa. A game from the Must Have category of my wish list. Thank You Secret Santa!

I believe my Secret Santa was actually Santa Claus! I got a wonderful festively wrapped gift at my doorstep. I was going to wait until Christmas Eve to open it but my wife was so excited about the gift that she forced me to open it. Inside was a plethora of wonderfully gifts which were all so attuned to me and those i most often play games with.

First off, I am a passionate Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan and there was a beautiful Buccaneers fleece blanket and 2008 Team calender. Also, being a huge Star Wars fan, I also received a page of limited edition Yoda Stamps.

Additionally and unbelievably, I receive three very considerate games with a my past geeklists and wishlist in mind. I received "Pit:The Deluxe Ed." for my friends that have short attention spans, "PUNCT" for my wife and I to play, and the biggest surprise...a shrinkwrapped "Star Wars-The Queens Gambit" just for me. I don't know how he was able to find one unless he really is Santa, stole the blue prints from Hasbro and made it in his workshop.

I can't express how unbelievable grateful I am for this well thought out and generous Secret Santa gift. Thank you Santa!!

Wow. Thanks Secret Santa, whoever you are. I thought your workshop was in the hotly contested region of the North Pole, not Ohio.

What two (that's two, folks) beautifully wrapped presents I got today. Such beautiful paper. I wonder what's in them. Shouldn't open them, should I? Nope, no, that would be wrong. I guess. ... Only a week to go. Officially. ...


Oh, sod it. I had a bad day at work today. The wrapping's coming off.

Grand!laugh

Thanks, Santa for Rat Hot and Clans
