For those of you new to this list, I originally posted this list back in 2006 as a way to let my Santa know when I receive my gift without him/her worrying about divulging their identity. The list has gone well in the last two years and I am curious how large it will grow this year since there are around 1000+ participants this year (529 items in 2006, 874 items in 2007). This is a pretty good place to view the gifting as it progresses through the holiday season, so enjoy!

Use this as a central area to record what our Secret Santas sent us. When you post on 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 released!

Please only make an entry when you actually receive the present!

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?)


To see how the previous two years of Secret Santa-ing have gone on those year's versions of this list, look at these links:

A lovely gift-wrapped package arrived in the mail yesterday morning. In true detective style, I tried to figure out who it was from, but the shipper had totally anonymized it.

Thanks, Santa... and not only for the game but also for the clever GM taunts. I got a good laugh out of our little Mad Gab exchange (which is now reflected in my comments on the game).

(Note: I haven't opened the package yet, but based on the shape/size, I'm pretty sure that I've figured out what it is...)

Well, apparently the economic crunch hasn't hit the North Pole area yet (or maybe Santa has shares in Exxon Mobil), because my Secret Santa sent me Tide of Iron from the top of my wishlist!

I've added a handful of easier (I think) war games to my list over the last several months and from everything I've read this is going to set me on my path to beginner grognard.

I have to be honest though, I have little faith this is going to make it unopened until Christmas. Thanks Secret Santa!

Long story short... I must have been extra good this year.

Not only was I paired up with the best Secret Santa ever, but I also had an extra delivery that makes this the best (pre)Christmas ever!

On Nov 20th, my wife went into labor (due date was Dec 2nd), so we called up the OB and they told us to come into their office for a pre-labor checkup instead of going straight to the hospital. Good thing, too, since we would never have made it to the hospital! Upon arriving at the OB's office, they found my daughter's head was already crowning and ran to grab their emergency delivery kit. My daughter was born within ten minutes of arriving at the office! Everyone is healthy and quickly recovering.

We had a 48 hour stay at the hospital after that, during which my Secret Santa package arrived. For obvious reasons, I wasn't willing to leave my family's side to try meeting the delivery driver. Luckily, a kind neighbor met him and was able to get the package safely inside our building's stairwell for me.

My package arrived Nov 21st. I got loaded up with a creative variety of games -

some off my wishlist...
Tikal
Shear Panic
Felix: The Cat in the Sack
and some well thought out additions to a game I already have...
Carcassonne: Cult, Siege and Creativity
The Count of Carcassonne

Santa - you're the best, and very inspiring! Although I must admit, the highlight of the deliveries is my daughter and wife. Thank you for helping to make it extra special too, though! Santa sent me a note informing me of another delivery coming for the little one.
(See? I told you my Santa is the best.)

Woohoo! Been wanting this game for a while. All the local game stores snicker at me when I ask how long their waiting lists for it are.

I decided to go ahead and open it since it arrived today and today is also by happy coincidence my birthday!

Man, this was fast!

I was at work and got a (rather annoyed) call from the GF, saying, "there is a long skinny box here for you, did you order something else?"
I told her then that I joined the secret santa here on BGG, and she got a lot calmer.
Imagine my surprise when I got home the next day (yes, I have to work overnight a lot) and I opened this up!

Thank you very much Santa! I didn't realize I had been this good.

Now, onto my target!!

I was getting ready to head to a game day today, and about 5 minutes before I had to leave, the Fed Ex man pulled up and dropped off a package. I, having the patience of a hungry 2 year-old, ran to the kitchen to get some scissors to open the box (which said Thoughthammer on it).

Inside was King of Siam. What a great game! I brought it to the game day, and while it got a lot of admiration, unfortunately, we didn't get to play it. I am looking forward to bringing it with me to Thanksgiving with my family. Should be a lot of fun!

Also, under the packing peanuts was the Power Grid: China/Korea map!



Awesome! I can't wait to try this out. I already, opened my box of PG and put it in. Now, along with the other expansions I have, the box weighs a ton!

Thanks, Secret Santa!!!

Merry Christmas Secret Santa or should I say C Santos!

Our Secret Santa is so incredibly awesome!
He had our package delivered so quickly! It arrived yesterday mysteriously on our side porch. My wife found it, as she arrived home! When I came home from a school trip late last night, she had the Christmas tree lit up and the package was just sitting there under the tree...by itself. WOW!

My wife said, I thought we should have a little Christmas tonight. I said, well let’s just see how heavy the box is. I was impressed by the weight, obviously. She said, what do you think would happen if the tape came a bit loose…and all. I said, well it looks like the cats might have already been scratching at it…and oh look…the tape is loose. She said…Oh no!

This is where we must apologize to our most awesome Secret Santa!
Santos, we are so sorry but we opened our gifts already…I…I hope you can forgive us!

What happened next was shocking! My wife saw the snowy white packing peanuts and…I guess…lost it…thought it was snow and exclaimed…Its Christmas…and started tossing the peanuts into the air! I tried to stop her, but it was too late, she had reached in and pulled out a gift and thrust it into my hands! It was…


Before I knew it she reached in and pulled out another and another and another present…


But I have to say you hit the nail on the head. When she reached into the box and pulled out Memoir 44 Eastern Front…she screamed out loud! But followed by the Pacific Theatere…genius…pure genius Santa!

We both feel we have had Christmas already! But now it’s our job to help others feel the Christmas spirit that you brought us already this year!
Thank you Secret Santa! We hope that your Secret Santa is as Fantastic and Wonderful as you are to us! Happy Holidays, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, tet, and Festivus to you and yours!

BIG Thanks go to my Secret Santa !!

My gift-wrapped package and card arrived towards the tail end of this week, and I managed to resist for a day or two, before finally succumbing this morning.

And it's a good job I did!

This is a game I've had on my wishlist as soon as I heard about it, but then I've been put off a little by the hype, then more intrigued, then put off again, then determined to get a copy and give it a try, then .... etc.

So ... My Secret Santa did exactly what I'd hoped and took the decision out of my hands

I know I have a tricky wishlist to buy for, I mean ... what do you buy someone who owns a game shop ??

Thanks again SS, and have a great Xmas!


Nick

Wow! Even with the clues my Secret Santa provided - which can be found here - I was surprised by his generosity and thoughtfulness. Santa was so determined to find the games I wanted, he worked with his elves at two different Gift Processing Centers.

Both packages arrived on the same day. My wife, in her wisdom, has always held that gifts that arrive in the mail can be opened the same day. Her reasonable stance on this issue is one of the many reasons that I love her.

The first was from Magdar Boulder Games with Citadels, and included the Dark City Expansion. Awesome! That's been on my wishlist since I played it at BGG.CON last year, and my kids should love it. The package also included another short poem, mentioning that I should receive the other three games in a separate delivery. Holy cow!

Later that day, I came home to find a FedElf delivery from DwarfHammer. I opened it immediately to find:

Numbers League: Adventures in Addiplication: Excellent! I discovered this recently, and it'll be a great game for my elementary school daughter and the 4th graders on the Number Sense team. I love the artwork.

Battle Line: I've been looking to add more 2-player-only games, and this is one of the best. Another game with terrific artwork.

Finally, I was stunned when I uncovered:

Attika: I wanted a quick civ-building game, and this fits the bill perfectly. It's also good as a 2P. I've had my eye on it for some time, and I'm thrilled to get it.

Thank you, Santa! My family and friends will be enjoying these games for many years to come.

We were unloading Thanksgiving feast shopping from the car when the Fedex truck showed up. Quickly shuffling through the snow (yes we have beautiful skiing powder here already!) I grabbed the box and took it inside, explaining quickly to my wife that Secret Santa ordered this, I've still been a good boy!

There was a big gaming get together last night and my family gets my stuff off my geeklist for Christmas so I opened it just a few hours later after work around the house was done.

The delivery was gold! A replacement for my (apparently lost at a con) copy of Race for the Galaxy and...

My Secret Santa package arrived yesterday. Despite permission from my Santa to open upon arrival, I can't get into "present mode" when we're not even to December yet! My kids are screaming for me to open it, but since (sadly) I only have them on the weekends, I should be able to withstand their impatience. Thank you Santa, for your promptness and the gift. I'll update this when I discover what you sent to me.

Dec. 23- Due to child custody issues, I generally am forced to celebrate various holidays slightly off from the traditional calendar, and this year, Christmas is on of those holidays. My Secret Santa gift was one of the first that I opened, and after all other gifts were open, we wasted no time getting this to the table. Thank you, Santa, for such a desired present!

I called my mom this morning when I woke up (I am in college and I can't have my secret santa ship it here). I asked her if I happened to have a package for me. She had that "son, what the hell did you buy this time" tone in her voice. I said, "Nothing, I am participating in an international Secret Santa and someone might have sent me a gift". And then she gave me the news. She said yes you do, so you can open it on Tuesday when you get here. I said, HECK NO, open it now so I can see what I got! AND IT WAS DOMINION!!

Thank you Secret Santa! It is very much appreciated!

Now to find 500 sleeves to sleeve this bad boy!

When I got home this past Friday my husband said "You got a lot of packages today they're in the living room." So of course I ran to them and looked throught them. There was a box from Fun Again and I knew I didn't order anything from them and then it dawned on me... surprise it had to be from my Secret Santa! laugh I took me a good 5 minutes to get the dang package open. When I did, I saw Red Dragon Inn 2.

THANK YOU SECRET SANTA!!!!!! You ended my not-so-great week on a great note!

A box arrived. I opened the shipping box and inside was Mr. Jack! This was a must have off my wishlist. My Secret Santa is awesome! I do not know who it is...only that they are in South America somewhere. So if you're reading this Santa, Thank You very much. I can't wait to play it!
