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?

I pulled into my driveway on Friday the 21st, at 5pm, to find a notice from my local postal carrier informing me that there was a package waiting for me at the office. The office which closed early that day, and wouldn't re-open until Monday morning. The misery of knowing that my Secret Santa's delivery was waiting for me less than a mile away, and being unable to get to it was almost unbearable. I was thrilled to find a copy of Ys waiting for me safe and sound early Monday (Christmas Eve - how perfect). I had played it at Origins this past summer and loved the game. Thanks SS. A great choice. Happy Holidays.

I got this "pirate game" from my US-Only Secret Santa (I joined both programs.) I was a bit concerned, but I got a note from Santa a few days before Christmas that something was coming and this got here the Saturday before Christmas!

It also had Lost Cities


Thanks US-Only SS!

YAY! Thank you Santa! I have no idea how you coordinated with the elves to have the gift arrive on Christmas Eve but at least I didn't have to wait long to open it

It came nicely wrapped in the shipping box; I got my g/f to open the box to check and she said it was okay for me to look.

I had lots of fun shaking the gift and wondering what was in it. I am really happy. I really like Vikings but haven't been able to convince myself to buy it; making this a perfect gift!

Merry Christmas!
Mike

Secret Santa : thanks a lot for this great game !

Really cool that you picked the game highest on my wishlist cool
I haven't played it yet, but did enough research to know for sure that I'll enjoy playing it !

Your gift arrived from the US on Friday 21st at work, just in time as this was my last working day before the Christmas break. There was an additional 10 Euro customs fee to pay, but apparently work covered that assuming the package was work related

Whoever you are, thanks again and best wishes to you and your loved ones !!!!

Dear Santa,
I am still in somewhat of a state of shock, so please bear with me. The package I received was huge and really heavy, and the contents were... Wow. I'd like to think my language skills are pretty decent, but I am flabbergasted and speechless at what was inside. Starcraft by itself would have been a *fantastic* present, but in addition I also received The Pillars of the Earth AND Hive. There's generous, and then there's generous, but now there's also elleana's-secret-santa-GENEROUS. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I hope you had great Christmas.

Now, just to find a few unsuspecting friends with half a day to spare to try it out...

Dear Secret Santa:

I was a good boy and didn't open the wrapped packages until Christmas morning! I am quite excited to receive Colosseum, and hope to play it soon.

And I also received Diamant:


Both of these were from my wishlist. Awesome!

But that's not all!

I received a note from my SS that if I posted in the forums, I would receive another gift, so naturally, I did! And, on Christmas Eve morning, I received via Airmail The Game of Shakespeare:


Thanks so much, Santa!

My nicely wrapped SS present sat patiently for more than three weeks under the Christmas tree, and when I opened it the other day I had the pleasure to unwrap not only Power Grid, but the France/Italy map expansion as well. That was a much appreciated touch of class.

And by the way, the game rocks! We already played it twice with family and friends, and everybody loved it.

Thank you Santa!

Thanks so much Santa (whoever you are) for Lord of the Rings – Confrontation,
Your timing was perfect, we were just leaving for a long holiday trip so now I know what to look forward to on our return. Though too big to bring with us, I can ogle the photos of it on BGG.
Should have guessed that you would pick LotR-C from my huge wishlist of games; often begging my friend to bring his copy of the original version has resulted in many plays, my rating it 9 of 10, and placing it high on my wishlist make it a perfect choice. A lot of game condensed into a small, quick-playing package. Sure to get a lot of playing time in 2008.
Your silence had me worried but it is good to see that my faith in Santa was not misplaced. Can’t wait to open what will probably be my best present for Christmas; thanks again and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Gordon 12/26/2007
Posted both on the BGG website thread and Santa’s mailbox.

Woohoo! I was a bit worried that my gift wouldn't arrive, but I checked the mail today and there was a package addressed from Santa! I opened it up and underneath the packing peanuts was a note. It said:

"I figure someone who is probably always carrying a bunch of different colored stones with him really needs to have a copy of Light Speed. Be good! ~ Santa"

My SS must have been referring to my game Burgoo which is pretty much a bag a colored stones. He's right because mt game closet is full of glass stones.

Then I saw another Cheapass game in the box called Camden, which I never heard of. I love getting games that I know nothing about because it gives me a chance to learn about the game straight from the rulebook rather than from a review.

Then the big gift which was wrapped turned out to be Detroit-Cleveland Grand Prix! My wife lived in Detroit before we met and I've been to Belle Isle where the race was held, so this was a perfect fit! I can't wait to try it out!

Thank you Secret Santa!!

I got a little nervous when Christmas day rolled around without word from my Santa, but my gift arrived the day after, and it really made my day. Santa got me a copy of Vinci (in shrink, no less!). This is the best present I got from ANYONE this year. I wish my Santa could have seen me bound gleefully up the stairs to post this!
