Once again I am running this list as a central location to let your Secret Santa know when your (hopefully much appreciated) gift has arrived to your house.

Use this list to record what your Secret Santas sent you and remember to include any comments such as thanks that you want to give your Secret Santa. When you post on this list, you may want to make a note on your profile with a link to your entry so your Secret Santa can easily locate your confirmation of delivery and your 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!

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 years' editions of this list have gone, look at these links:


"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"



Simon's yearly breakdown of games:
**EDIT Just Added** Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2009

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2008

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2007

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2006



[b]New Note (I placed this in the comments section as well): If you have added a "Comment" of your gift receipt, please take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than to place a comment in this section of the receipt of your gift. The actual items being added is how the statistics get accumulated for Simon Hunt's great results list located at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/49122

A good example of how to make an entry useful for this other list is located at: this entry.

Making an actual entry will also make it easier for your Secret Santa to locate your Item.

I've been eying Jungle Speed La Total for quite a while but since Asmodee doesn't see fit to distribute this to the USA, never quite bit the bullet and purchase the game from overseas. Thankfully, now I won't have to do so! My secret santa kindly purchased this and sent it over the ocean along with a couple Essen expansions! I know that some of the college students at the university where I work will be very excited to spice up this game with the expansions...as well as some of my nephews!


This was one expansion I was quite excited to find in the package! Factory Fun is one of my favorite games of all time - I am definitely looking forward to playing this game with the expansion in the very near future!


This will be another interesting expansion with which to play next time I pull out Power Grid.

And finally, Santa sent me
. Elves got held up a bit on this one due to it not coming available until just recently...

THANKS VERY MUCH SANTA!

I've done the secret Santa thing the last couple years and really enjoyed it, but not so much for my wife who seems to always pick the same gift as Santa sends me. So, she requested that I send her e-mail address on to Santa so that she would not get me the same thing. Santa was very open to this (even when I sent the wrong email address ...should really know my wife's email address)

A week or so ago Santa asked me to post here to confirm that my packages (yes I did see that 's' ) have arrived. We were out of town for the holiday so was very excited to check the porch when we got back. Nothing there. Weird...well I'll just go grab the mail from the mail box. Humm...small box in the mail box. I open it up to find a beanie reindeer. I left it on the counter and go to bed. In the morning my 3 year old son finds it and says 'Santa gave me a reindeer!' He then threw it up as high as he could and said 'Look! It can fly!' Since then it has become one of his favorites that he carries around all the time. On rare occasions when he does not have it my 1 year old daughter likes it too...but usually my son has it.

So, that was a great gift from Santa...but I keep looking at the porch...nothing there. Santa did say package'S' didn't he? Humm... wait...check porch next day...wait...humm...

Finally my wife told me...you really don't need to watch the porch...things are OK....then it hit me. She grabbed it and hid it...did not tell me. I said but I need to let Santa know that it's here. She said 'Oh, he knows already' .... Now I actually have to wait to open it this year....unlike previous years where the box lasts about five minutes before I'm ripping it open Will post what I got when I know what I got.

My Secret Santa just plain rocks! Not only did I get the very exciting expansion to Agricola, one of my favourite games to play with my wife! I also got a bag of vegimeeples, and the rather excellent game of Burgen Land!



We've tried out the Burgen Land and it rocks, next up is the Agricola Expansion. I hope my Santa's Santa is equally as rocking and generous!

WOW!!! My Secret Santa is the Best! After a number of fun, creative, and exciting e-mails, my Santa sent a message indicating his elves were out on early delivery! I clicked the link excitedly to see that I had a package arriving the next day and was an unthinkable 18 lbs!! I spent all today repeatedly checking to see if the package had been delivered, and discovered at the end of our last class of the day (as i teach) I found out the elves had made a daylight drop. I swooped home in before the study hall I watched for a quick pick up to find a gigantic box sitting on my front porch!

I grabbed in and brought it back to my class much to the OOooo and AAaaa's of my study hall students! I opened the box to find not one, but three wonderfully wrapped gifts inside! I was, and still am, floored! My students were all about me opening them up, and alas...I must say my will power for such an amazing this was just too small...it's December after all, and I wanted a chance to get in some plays of whatever was in the packages when I went home to visit the family.


First package opened and much to my excited surprise: Zooloretto

I had this title on my list for a LONG time and had wanted to pick it up for use in the board game club I'm putting together at my school. I was so excited to add this great game to my collection and look forward to many enjoyable hours playing!

The second package followed closely on it's heels: Formula D

Wow! I was stoked to have a chance to add FormulaD to my collection. It fits perfectly into a niche I hadn't filled yet and is perfect type of light game I can see enjoying, and the potentials for expandability are exciting. I can't wait to give this thing a go since I haven't had a chance to play this one yet! meeple

Finally, the third package....the heaviest of the bunch! : BattleLore

*GASP!* I've been wanting to try out Battlelore for what seems like FOREVER! I'm so excited to get games in and paint my minitures having epic battles! What a totally fun game to top off an amazing package!

-Santa I'm truly humbled by your generosity and want you to know how deeply appreciative I am and totally excited to get lots of plays of the gifts you sent! I hope your Christmas is filled with happiness, joy, family, laughs, friends, and boardgames! Best wishing to you and my deepest thanks!!

My secret santa has been amazing! I've been taunted, taunted, and taunted again -- in codes! The level of interaction has been most excellent, not to mention getting to play around with a fellow math geek.

As for gifts, so far I've received:

Polarity (Which is crazy fun and totally unlike any other game I have!)



Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries -- not on my wishlist, but carefully chosen as a better gift than the Ticket to Ride variations I'd listed (because my SS took the time to get to know me and realized that a game designed for 2-3 would be best). Talk about rockin'!




Edit: Apparently there's another game on the way. Holy wah, eh?!

Edit 2: The third gift from my SS just arrived:

Dune -- HOLY CRAP. I have no clue what sort of wizard my SS is, but a complete copy of Dune just arrived yesterday.



And not only that, but there was another game in there, especially for my girlfriend! (Who lives 6 hours away, and just happened to be visiting at the time):

Carcassonne -- one of our favorite games to play together!



Craziness! I never expected anything on this scale -- not to mention the awesome tauntings and amazing attention to detail.

Thanks so much SS314!

So! Secret Silent Santa strikes again! As strikes quite well, I might add! Awesome, awesome stuff!

First of all, I hadn't heard from my BGG Santa, but I HAD heard from my RPGG Santa. Cthanta Claus has told me that a package is coming, so when I got home today and saw the box, I naturally assumed it was gonna be the RPG Santa's box. But Cthanta has implied that the package was coming direct from whoever he ordered from, so when I saw that it was a normal priority mail box, I wondered.

Upon opening it, I found a large envelope labeled "Stocking Stuffers" and two wrapped presents.

I said to my wife, "Should I wait till Christmas to open these?"
She said, "Pff, Nooo."

The stocking Stuffers consisted of a number of Fluxx Promo Cards and a couple mini-expansions.
To whit - Monty Python Fluxx Castle Expansion
Zombie Fluxx Flamethrower expansion
Talk like a martian
Zap a Card
Traitor
Sir Not Appearing In This Game
and Zombies Eat Brains

Very nice...

Then the smaller of the packages.
 

Ticket to Ride: Switzerland - Something I've been wanting for as long as I've been on the Geek.

Then the Big box!
Tilting it side to side produced a noise and shifting not unlike a brick in a box...


Battlestar Galactica! This has become one of my favorite games at the game night at the FLGS! I didn't really care for the new TV series, but the game is incredible! We've already told our Friday night RPG group that we're gonna play this instead this week.

THANK YOU SANTA! You rock! Merry Christmas.

Got home today, and mein Gott, there's my Secret Santa package sitting right there on the porch! Every year, I promise myself that I'll wait until Christmas morning, and every year my wife says the same thing: "Oh, open it! You know you want to!" Inside, my Secret Santa sent me the very cool Martin Wallace gem Rise of Empires! Wow! Normally, my game group would be playing Arkham Horror this Sunday. looks like this bad boy will hit the table instead.


Thank you again, Secret Santa, and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Monkeys and Camels and Santa, oh my!

My super generous Santa sent me a copy of Monkey Lab *and* a copy of Timbuktu!



The package arrived today from Boulder Games, and I debated with myself for 20 minutes about whether to open it. And then I found the packages, beautifully wrapped inside, and debated AGAIN whether I could wait for Xmas.

But it's our game night tonight, so hopefully we can start the monkey business (and camel business) right away!

Thank you Santa!

I just typed the epic story of my EVIL Secret Santa into my profile, so hop over there to read about it.
My secret Santa sent me a large box filled with gifts for not just me, but my entire family!!!

For me:
Pandemic - AWESOME!
Cosmic Encounter - Can't wait to get it on the table!!!
A very nice Christmas card
For my wife from Mrs. Claus:
Christmas themed Pot Holders.
For my kids:
Legos - For Jacob, my 6yo son.
Littlest pet shop animals - For my Anna, my 4yo girl.
Wooded Stacking Rings - For Kaylee, my 1yo girl.

IMHO, I had the BEST Secret Santa ever!

I appreciate the wonderful mix of game types. Everybody in my family will have a great time. This is first Secret Santa, and I feel very rewarded to have been part of such a joyous (and fun) adventure.

A box arrived today from a local online games shop. I was fairly sure it was from my SS but opened the box just in case. There i discovered the very pretty Dixit. It shall stay in it's shrink until Christmas day although I'm itching to check out the excellent artwork within.

Now I think this is from my International Santa rather than my local ANZAC Santa but would love confirmation of that, if you are watching... Santa? Dearest?

Thanks Santa you are the best and have exquisite taste.

The generosity of this community is astounding. I've only been a member for a year but have been impressed time and time again at the eagerness and sincerity with which folks give to each other on this site. When I think that we're from all areas of the planet, it gives me a wonderful sense of comfort and happiness. This is the holiday spirit.

I'm the beneficiary of a fantastic Secret Santa. I was sent Chaos in the Old World, off of my must have list. I've been dying to play this game, I did a two-player trial last night and I can't wait for a full blown game.

Underneath that was Catan: Seafarers! This is particularly awesome because this game was a ways down on my wish list, with only a brief comment that Settlers is my wife's favorite game and we like playing it together. A superior choice for a holiday gift.

Secret Santa, thank you so much for your generous gift and the thought that you put into it. I couldn't be happier, and my wife is happy too.

Everyone, best wishes for the holiday season.
Cheers!

So I was starting to get a little worried. Both Cthanta and Santa were really quiet for me this year. Little did I realize he was biding his time, and Monday he sent me a message. And wouldn't you know it, the gift arrived today!



Now, I'm going to do my best to wait until Christmas... but you're not making it easy. There are only a handful of games that come in a box this size, and I'd be ecstatic to own any of them.

Thanks Santa!

THANK YOU SO MUCH SANTA! I opened my gift, and what did I see; the two glowing eyes of a Protoss Zealot staring back at me! An extremely generous gift! Looking to get a game or two in this week, and hopefully pictures to follow!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I am blown away! I can not express how awesome my Secret Santa is!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

My wife was asking me today if I was participating in Secret Santa this year and then the Fed-Ex man showed up!

Not only did I get Conflict of Heroes I also got:

Field Commander: Alexander

I am totally blown away by the pure generosity of people on this site.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

Thanks again Santa!

Yo, Santa Dude.

Thanks for "powering up" my Christmas.

I don't know exactly what you sent me, other than it expands PG. I'm guessing Benelux/Central Europe and China/Korea (although a surprise of Brazil/Spain-Portugal would also be nice). And you got me the expansion deck (I'm guessing) as well.

I'm not allowed to open until the 25th...but thanks!

I apologise to my poor harassed Santa for not posting this straight up. I was on holiday, and then rather busy, and on top of that the elves accidentally sent the parcel to my next door neighbours! Also, I was struck dumb in awe at Santa's unexpected skills at poetry . No, really, it's difficult to know what to say whistle.

Anyway, I have one big parcel and three smaller ones! And I will be good and not open them until Christmas, although I'm sure I know what at least one of them is . Thank you Santa!

I managed to pull the wool over Santa's eyes this year, because despite misbehaving all year, Santa's generosity has overflown in my direction. In addition to Livingstone, which looks absolutely beautiful by the way, I also recieved



and



Words of thanks have been sent via geekmail. Suffice to say I am humbled at Santa's kindness. It'll be a late night tonight
