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:

Hooray! I received a rather big unexpected package today, and at first was a bit pissed off I had to pay ~25 USD of VAT and import taxes on it... But it turns out it was well worth it . I opened up the box to find the following inside:

- Container
- Formula D (plus a little additional promo car)
- Power Grid Benelux/Eastern Europe Board

I'm quite overwehelmed by my Secret Santa's generosity. Thank you VERY much, whoever you are!!!

Oops, inadvertently opened this parcel expecting anything but this wonderful game looking at me! Took me a second to realize I just pre-opened my Secret Santa gift, but too late is too late. No way to go back, so I can as well put it on the table tonight laugh

Santa, thank you so very much! I always wanted this game and I am thrilled by holding it in my hands. You are great!

THANK YOU SECRET SANTA

BGG Community: I have THE BEST Secret Santa.

I was taunted some days ago, and, finally, I found a US Postal box at home. I decided to open it.....
.....
....and...
....
....not only I got DOMINION (a "must have" from my wishlist) but, also, Mr. Jack Expansion!!!!!, (You were right, Santa, Mr Jack is a game I really enjoy)....

But I also got a UNIQUE present. Thank you, SS for the GeekCoin you sent. This made me feel very special, and I will ensure that this coin continues to get passed.

SS, you left many traces and I already know who you are. From Madrid, I really wish you Merry Christmas, and hope you feel as special as myself when you get your SS present.

Thank you, BGG Team, for making BGG

Thank you, Mr. Vasel, for making this wonderful SS experience

Finally, Merry Christmas to all BGG community. I will not miss mext years' SS.

Santa has been very generous and I must have been a good geek this year.

First he teased me with a story about a time machine and I received . . .
Chrononauts and Chrononauts: Lost Identities



Then not too long after, on my wedding anniversary (11/26, this post is delayed), I received a big box from Boards and Bits containing . . .


Dominion

and


Samurai

I had down-graded Samurai to a "Thinking About It" while Santa was delivering and it turns out that is was the first to hit the table, engaging the non-gamer wife (who is a big fan of Through the Desert) and a gamer friend.

Thanks Santa!

P.S. Not only is this belated, I also put it as a comment rather than an entry. You'd wonder that I've been here for more than 4 years!

My Secret Santa was delivered to my door, but since it required signature confirmation and I was gone, I have to wait for tomorrow to pick it up. But an early thanks to my Santa for everything!

Update: OK after waiting 30 mins in line, they finally ask if there's anyone there just wanting to pick up a package. So finally I get the box.

Well my Secret Santa had left me a clue, but now I know it was a bluff. But this is a great surprise and something I expect to play a lot of. Too bad my wife is out of town, because I expect she'd have a lot of fun with.

Thanks again!

Oh, I also got Canadian candy. That's a nice treat!

2nd Update: Got to play this last night. It's very fun during the build part, but frustrating (at least the first play) during the flight, as I kept messing up rules and my ship got destroyed because of that. At least the next time I play, I should get the rules right.

Woot! I got a geek mail from Santa earlier this week while on the road on business saying my present had arrived. I asked my wife and sure enough Santa had delivered. Unfortunately, I wasn't coming home until Friday morning.

Well as soon as I got off the plane I rushed home to find Emerald, a game that has been on my list for a very, very long time. Thank you so much Santa.

But there was more, Lost Cities: The Board Game was also in the box.


Thanks so much Santa,
Jon

I'm having a gaming night tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get them on the table.

My Secret Santa lives Down Under, so my package arrived direct from a US store. Fortunately (unfortunately?) it was gift wrapped inside, and THIS year of all years my wife is insisting we leave it that way under the tree.

I know my SS's identity, but I'll just say THANK YOU Santa for my gift, I'm sure it will be awesome when I open it.

(I suspect it might be Brass, based on my wishlist, and the size, shape and weight of the box. My 3yo son whispered to me today, "Let's open it when Mommy is gone so we know what it is." but I told him we'd wait, heh.)

Updated: opened and it was indeed Brass!

The Fed Ex man arrived this morning causing major chaos at my house. I work nights and was sound asleep after getting the kids off to school. The door bell rang twice, the dog lost his marbles barking and a horrible buzzing noise started. After throwing on my bathrobe I ran down with hall to see what was the matter. I retrieved my box from the patio and went in search of the buzzing noise. I first thought that it was the door bell, I banged on it with a hammer, that did nothing. I then realized that the noise was coming from the never used security system that must have been original to the apartment complex.

I contacted the main office they would send a man right away. I quickly got dressed and waited about 10 minutes. I was annoyed so refused to wait to open the box. What a wonderful surprise, I love to play games with my kids and received great fun for the near future. Not only Tier auf Tier but also....




The "man" arrived, I supplied him with a screwdriver so he could remove the security panel. With the wires came a small amount of smoke, it turns out the wires shorted out and were trying to start a fire. I said just take it away. They were nice enough to cover the hole in the wall and paint for me, thus keeping me awake for more hours then I care to be.

Thank you Santa you created a very interesting day for me.

Merry Christmas to all and may sleep be plentiful tomorrow.

Wow! Thank you Secret Santa, you were extremely generous! I returned home from my last final exam to discover a package from Boulder games. In the box was Reef Encounter, a game from the top of my wishlist. Sarah instantly fell in love with the bits and the theme. Unfortunately, it will take me a couple days to digest the rules before we can give it a try. Fortunately, that wasn't all that was in the box...

Also included were a copy of...


Enemy Chocolatier! A game that wasn't even on my radar before, but looks right up our alley. I think we might give this a try tonight.

and finally,


Arkham Horror: The King in Yellow expansion! Sarah was very happy when she opened this one (Arkham Horror is her favorite game)! This is on the agenda for tomorrow.

Thanks again, Secret Santa!

Dear Santa: I tried to be good and wait until Xmas. Honest, I did. The folks at Boulder Games did an excellent job of wrapping the presents, and I was filled with glorious anticipation. Unfortunately, I don't live alone. Moxie and Mina were extremely curious about the packages. They had a brief conference over their suspicions. Mina was a witness when the presents mercilessly attacked Moxie. They had no choice. They unwrapped them both. Terrible, terrible. When will those kittens learn some patience?

Thank you very much for Hart an der Grenze and Cheeky Monkey:
I can't wait to play them. As soon as I get them away from the cats:


Sincerely,

Dan4th, Moxie, Mina (and Grayskale, who will get to play them, too)


ps. Dear Santa: I was *really* flattered that you looked at my blog. Thanks for that.

Got my Secret Santa gift on Tuesday all wrapped and pretty, so I put it under the tree(at my wife's insistanceangry), and was told I couldn't open it till Christmas. Well needless to say I've been naughty, 'cause when she went out grocery shopping this afternoon I peeked under the corner of the paper!devil Thanks so much for WOW the Adventure,
my collection is complete now. (except for the character expansions) Also included was Glory to Rome,
another title I have been wanting very much since I first played it at the Minneapolis Game Marathon last summer.

My secret Santa gift arrived today! I wasn't supposed to open it but I assumed the gifts would be wrapped. Ok. I hoped they wouldn't be so I could use the excuse to get my presents early. Yay! I really wanted the extension but had a hard time pulling the trigger on buying it due to $$. Now I don't have to anguish about the decision. Santa you rock!

Also in the box:Race for the Galaxy


You might find it odd that I have this game on my wish list but rate it a 6.5 I like the game but some of the symbology on the cards baffle me. In fact they make my brain hurt but I was on the fence about giving it a serious 3rd try. Now that I own the game and can read the rules for myself it should make more sense.

Also in the box:Wings of War: Miniatures
Awesome. One of each side. I love this game and the chrome is exspecially cool.

And last but not least:Unpublished Prototype

I'm not sure if this is a prototype or a print and play but the name of teh game is not obvious at first glance. The bits are amazing. I'll need to give the rules a read and play a game or two.

Thanks Santa. You have out done yourself this year.

THANK YOU!!

I have been eyeballing this one for a while... Almost bought it last weekend! Glad I didn't!

My girlfriend wants to play it so bad. Might be the best gateway game to get her hooked on the BGs. devil

Thanks again!!!

The Secret Santa package has arrived.

Many thanks in advance, and I'll update upon opening it on Christmas

Update:

Hooray! It's finally time to open the box.

Inside were two great picks. The fun-even-with-all-adults-playing dexterity game 'Gulo Gulo'.

and 'Trax'



An older two-player abstract I've been looking at.

Thanks Santa! I'm very pleased with your gifts. thumbsupthumbsup

and


THANKS SANTA!

Over the past couple years, I've culled my collection of a lot of the lighter family games and many of the children's games. This was a big mistake. Lately I've been trying to remedy that error. Rattlesnake is a great choice that I'm sure my kids are going to love.

Pandemic is a game I've wanted after my one playing of a friend's copy. I'm looking forward to using it as a "casual gamer" game. I love coop games, and this is one of the best.

I THINK I've deduced who my Santa is based on his avatar and country of origin. But I won't embarrass him by identifying him (or guessing). Let me simply say THANKS! Great choice and thanks for the bonus game!
