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.

326. Board Game: Snow Tails [Average Rating:6.98 Overall Rank:456]

I live in Finland where there is already a quite good chance of having snow in the ground this time of the year. However this year there is no snow so far...

But then my Secret Santa told me that there was package on the way and that I could, if I wanted, open it right to way. And there it was! Finally Snow! And Dogs! And lot of racing...I got the Snow Tails!! Cool!

And to add more into this already GREAT gift, the Santa had included also the Smallworld - Cursed! Expansion into the mix! What a super nice Santa. Thank You so much!!

I just hope that the "Cursed" isn't referring me for being too impatient and opening the gift before Christmas.... gulp

---
Addition one week later:

Santa hinted me that there was more to come. Something that would reveal where my SS was from... and there it was. A week from the first one, there was a package waiting for me in our kitchen table. Inside was something soft covering something hard. This time I didn't even pause to think whether I should keep it unwrapped until Christmas or open it. I just tore it open! I have my Curse on already, remember...
I was more than satisfied with the first gift(s), but what a superb addition this was! First of all there was the Slide 5 Card Game AND the Archaeology Card Game!

And finally the glue that would reveal Santa's position... there was two Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics hats !! All the time while I sure that Santa was from the sunny and warm west coast of US, he was from Canada which has in my understanding pretty much same weather as we have here in Finland. And believe me, us Finns look forward to Winter Olympics probably just as much as Canadians! Especially the Ice Hockey...

Thank You Santa once more! You are just awesome!! Way beyond my expectations!!

RWC2015: Can't wait for it to start.
mbmbmbmbmb
The Adventure of Waiting has begun!

I have been waiting and waiting to hear from my Secret Santa, but there was no sign at all...

Today suddenly DHL delivered a parcel from Secret Santa...

Now I have to wait until my wife checks if the content is wrapped..

Then I'll have to wait till Sunday, because we can't have a Christmas Tree until after St Nicholas Eve.

Then I'll have to wait until it's finally Christmas, that's still 21 days and 14 hours to go.

Okay, I'll make you all wait a bit too, I'll take some pictures and add them to this post later

Thank you Santa!!!


Edit#1 December 3rd:
Here is a picture of the parcel:


The Wife checked inside: No Gift Wrapping.
She will Gift Wrap them this weekend after St Nicholas Eve.... So I'll just have to wait until Sunday to even see how many items there are inside and what size they are...

Edit#2 December 6th:
Stores were closed, so I could not get a Christmas tree today. Now we will have to wait until Tuesday (no time on Monday to get one).
The Wife told me there are 2(!) presents in the box, but I'll have to wait until the Christmas tree is there until she will show me the gift-wrapped presents.

Edit#3 December 8th:
Okay, the Christmas Tree is up
But now her excuse is that we ran out of Christmas-wrapping-paper. Now I have to wait until she buys new wrapping paper. soblue

Edit#4 December 9th:

Yes, she bought Christmas-wrapping-paper
Now I have to wait until she actually wraps the presents zombie


Edit #5 December 10th:

Da Wife wrote:
But why do you want me to wrap it already. Why can't it just wait in the box it came in until just before Christmas and then wrap it? If we put it under the tree there is a chance the kids will unwrap it already before Christmas

Me: But but, it's not me, I can wait (as if), it's the BGG geeks who want to see a picture of the wrapped presents shake

Edit #6 still the 10th, but now at night:
Hear hear, the gifts are gift-wrapped! The waiting is over:

New we will just have to wait about 14 days and 8 hours until I can open them
The red package is 1.2 kg and is the size of a standard kosmos gamebox. The silver package is about 1 kg and the size of a carcassone box.......devil

Edit#7 December 13th:
Da Wife is out visiting her grandmother, my youngest son is doing his map, my oldest went outside playing with a friend...
No......... No........... I have Willpowa, just 11 days and the odd 17 hours of waiting left til Christmas morning.

Edit#8 December 25th:
The Kids woke me at 6:15, but since we celebrate St Nicholas and we didn't tell them there would be presents they felt no reason to go downstairs. So I had to wait until 7:30 to get a shower and then another 30 long minutes until the kids were dressed and we finnaly could go downstairs.

Did my kids go blind over night
They just started playing and didn't notice the present for another 10 long long minutes!

NO, wait daddy, you get your presents last.

Finally!
Shall I unwrap the large present first or the small one?
I get the smaller one and my kids are already opening it for me shake

Wait wait wait!
But tthhhhatts duck! duck! Go!
That game has been on my wishlist for over a year!
No one in the Netherlands is selling this, and I only recently found it on a German online shop but at that time SS had already started so I could not buy it myself!

I wanted to cuddle and sniff my new treasure for a long long time, but my kids could not wait. They pushed the other present into my hands: Tobago!
Especially Da Wife will like this This is such a pretty looking game! I have been eying this in Essen this year and when I got home regretted I had not bought it.



Thank you Santa!

Even just Duck! Duck! Go! would already have been the best gift ever, but than I got a second great treasure too! Thank You! kiss

I arrived home after a long day of work to have a box waiting for me! I resisted opening the box as long as possible, and then well...I thought, if they are wrapped I will wait. Fortunately the only wrapping was shrink!!! A copy of Power Grid one of my top must haves!!! And that's not all....a copy of Tichu



Then I tripped, fell, and "accidentally" ripped the shrink off of power grid wow

So following my santa's instructions:
Quote:
As such, I am now in the practice of delivering gifts early to those who are especially "good" and who I can count on to not spoil the surprise early.

Some special elves should be arriving in the coming week with a package from you. I leave it up to you whether or not you decide to open it before the big day. Personally, I prefer to wait until the 25th...but if you do decide to open it early, the only stipulation is that you PLAY with some of your friends during the month of December to make the early opening worthwhile.

Either way, I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


I immediately played a 2 player learning game.

Thanks Santa!!!

And sorry if i disappoint!blush

I must've been good this year, because my gifts weren't just coal, as I expected (acquitted of all charges!)

First up I got 1960, a game I've been interested in for ages, mainly because i love a good election. Managed to play it once already and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks a lot!

Secondly:

Wanted this game for a while, and it was the most played game at my parents' house this christmas. Played about 10 3 player games, of which 9 I came last and once 2nd. My sister won every single game! Despite this, I enjoyed it immensely! Thanks again!

Thirdly:

Haven't got around to playing with this next, but look forward to it! Dice are always fun!

And, as if that wasn't enough:

This will unfortunetly supplant my house rule of 'zombiejack goes first.'

Thank you very much for your time and effort Santa! Your efforts are very much appreciated! I wish you a great 2010!

UPS truck driver came yesterday. My wife texted "Box from Troll & Toad. Is that your Secret Santa?" (Yeah, she has a full-keyboard smartphone.)

When I confirmed it likely was Secret Santa, she opened the box and placed the neatly wrapped object under our tree. So, for the moment at least, I still have no idea what it is - the shape is a bit mysterious...

Many thanks, Santa!

--

Update. So, I still haven't opened the wrapping. But I did, uh, take a few boxes from the game room to compare sizes. And now I'm worried, in a kind of delighted/embarrassed/perplexed/astounded fashion.

Y'see, the box is exactly the same size as AH's Dune, Merchant of Venus, or Civilization. So: smaller than Sword of Rome in height, but comparable in width and depth. There is one such old AH game on my wishlist - one that's been there for years, in fact. But but but.... if that's the case, Santa is astonishingly mind-bogglingly spectacularly generous.

Stay tuned here for more "Dave can't help investigate..."

--

Another update. Santa is even more generous than previously assumed. I received a nice parcel in the mail today - from Denmark! The package said (in bold letters on the outside)
Quote:
BGG SECRET SANTA
MAY BE OPENED RIGHT AWAY
Worried that my lovely wife might well confiscate the package and wrap the contents for later, I tore it open to discover Family Business and a nice note from Santa along with a picture of Santa himself. Despite some small discrepancies in the font, I think he was holding a large copy of his avatar to his chest, just to make identification possible! Many thanks, Santa Michael!

--

Whoa! Delightful, scary and true. Santa found a copy of 1830! I may have the coolest Santa ever

--

Last edit: here's a picture of me with the game in hand on Christmas Morning.

Had a box waiting for me at home from Boards and Bits last night...I couldn't resist tearing it open for it had not been the best day at work. Inside I found C&C:Ancients! I'm a huge Romanophile and am really looking forward to trying this out. Any advice from anyone how to get my not-so-interested-in-wargaming wife to play with me?

But that wasn't all! Inside the box was also a copy of Red November! I've wanted to play this for quite a while! We'll definitely get this to the table at our annual New Year's Eve gaming spectacular!

Just wanted to say thank you so much again to Santa Klaus (whoever you are out there) for your generosity to my family and me! Merry Christmas to everyone!

My Santa gave me specific instructions to not open my present until Christmas morning, and I fully intended to hold out!

But it was not to be - Sorry Santa!

The package came by UPS and I had a co-worker take a look inside - she assured me that the contents were gift-wrapped, so I removed the game shaped, gift-wrapped parcel, and began breaking down the box that it shipped in. As the packing peanuts tumbled into a plastic bag (we'll reuse 'em!) a piece of paper slipped out and floated to the floor. Face up.

It was the packing slip!

Before I knew what I was doing, I had inadvertently read the one line on the slip of paper that would spoil my Christmas surprise!

Tobago - Rio Grand Games

An odd combination of delight and dismay to be sure! On the one hand: A great new game to play! On the other: I've spoiled the surprise, and Santa's wishes!

Well, since that cat was already out of the bag, I decided not to wait to open the present and take a gander at my new game.

Ah, the scent of a new boardgame is intoxicating and Tobago is beautiful to behold.

Thank you, Santa, very much!
I hope you aren't terribly disappointed!

Ok, so I couldn't wait until Christmas....so sue me!

A package arrived on my doorstep today from Thought Hammer and I said to myself, "Gee, I don't remember ordering anything from them?"...DUH! It was, of course, from my Secret Santa.

Opening the box, I was surprised to find two games that I have been "On the Verge" of ordering for some time. The first was:
Catan: Traders & Barbarians. Can't wait to give this one a try at our next game night.

The second game in the box was:
Jet Set which I was thrilled to get because not only do I want to give this one a try...SO DOES MY WIFE!

Bottom line, an excellent set of games to add to my collection and games that I will most certainly take for a spin as soon as I can.

Thanks Santa!!!

I received Small World and one of the expansions, Small World: Cursed! And to my surprise, I also received the Giro D'Italia Card Game. It wasn't on my Wishlist because I had actually forgotten to add it by the Secret Santa deadline. It was as if my Secret Santa could read my mind! laugh

Got a FedEx package from Boards and Bits today. Thanks, Secret Santa! Now I just have to wait 22 days to see what's inside. I wonder if I can hold out that long...

Update: I just got back from a traumatic weekend that involved towing a U-haul trailer from Boise, ID to Portland, OR through a snowstorm, and when I got home I need something to cheer me up. Opening my Secret Santa package was just the thing.

Thank you, Secret Santa, for one of my Must Have games: Ticket to Ride: Märklin. And for generously including:



Ticket to Ride: Europa 1912, another game high on my wishlist.

I had a soothing evening of punching chits, sorting components, and reading instructions. Just the thing I needed to ease my mind. You really brightened my holiday season. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

I am a naughty recipient... I've had my parcel for 4 days, but I've only just had chance to post here. Sorry for keeping you in the dark, Santa!

Why is it that all Santa packages seem to arrive on the very best day possible? Like many others on this list, mine was waiting for me after a long and unpleasant day at work, during which I'd barely had time to think about games - you can probably picture my eyes lighting up when my girlfriend presented me with a big box when I arrived home.

I hastily opened the box to discover 2 beautifully wrapped gifts awaiting me. I checked for a message and discovered a nice little card that said nothing about waiting til the 25th whistle so I dug in and discovered Dungeon Twister Prison, full of exciting miniatures.



But not only that, my wonderful Santa had included Reef Encounter, a game I'd been looking forward to trying for some time. As the mighty Alan Partridge might have said - "Jurassic Park!"

Tactical combat, brain burning Euro joy and miniatures to paint as a bonus? A heartfelt thankyou to my most excellent Secret Santa - I hope you were as lucky as I consider myself to be.

I got my package from my Secret Santa but my wife says I gotta wait until X-mas to open it! I did of course open the box it was in....cause well...you know ...perhaps it was something else! But inside was a nicely wrapped gift in the shape of a game. So now I have to wait.

Nice wrapping paper by the way, both my wife and I are fans of Dogs and Cats. We have 2 dogs and a cat.

For now I will Dare to Dream!

Thanks Santa!

Peace

Edit Update: I finally opened it and it was.....The Innsmouth Expansion for Arkham Horror! Yea!

Thanks Santa!

My Secret Santa did an awesome job of taunting. Not only did he go through my wish list, but he also spent time reading my blog and going to my Music Composition site! His taunts were wonderful and his choices of games excellent.

Not only did he get me Gheos, in the package I also found Hive and an expansion that I don't have for Zooleretto.

Santa, where ever you are, thank you

Woohoo, I came home today and saw a package sitting by the door in the dark. I almost missed it since I wasn't expecting anything. Of course, I have absolutely no will power at all (and neither does my wife), so we opened it immediately. Upon opening it, I found three wrapped presents, including:

Race for the Galaxy: Rebel vs Imperium - we discovered Race for the Galaxy this year and it's quickly become one of our most played, favorite games. The Gathering Storm expansion really helped spice things up, and we were looking forward to this one as well. Thanks!

We also got:

Ticket to Ride: Europa 1912


TtR: Europe was one of our gateway games and we still pull it out occasionally. We were really excited to hear about this expansion and want to try it out to breathe some fresh air into the game.

Tichu


Tichu!!! My wife played a lot of Big Two when she was a kid, so we were always interested in this type of climbing game, especially since it gets raves here. We got it finally! Now to find another couple to play with...

Oh, and the best of all---one of the games was wrapped in Wallace and Gromit paper! How cool is that?



Thanks Secret Santa!

Thank you so much Secret Santa for STEAM! I was so surprised to get this game as it is rather pricey. I cam't wait to play it. Santa mailed me and said a another package was coming so I was going to wait and put my item on this list until then but I couldn't wait any longer! Thank you so much Santa! Merry CHristmas

P.S I just received the second package from my Secret Santa and it had Commands and Colors: Ancients!!! WOW. It also included The Truceless wards scenarios signed by the designer and some nice dice!! The box was signed by the designer too. WOW
