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.

Wow Santa, you've out done yourself once again.

Thank you so so much.

I received Power Grid - Factory Manager my number one pick.

I cannot wait to get it to the table.

But wait there's more.

I also received Dominion: Seaside.

A man can never have too many Dominion expansions.

What a great year and what great gifts.

Thank you once again.

My Secret Santa combed over my Wishlist and got me something I have wanted since it came out at Game Crafter but I just have not been able to afford for myself: the Lootin' Wizards base game!


I have the PDF file versions but it's a large print job (if you want it to look REALLY good) and would be time consuming, as well as take a good bit of paper and printer ink. I've never really gotten the time to get involved with it since my Dad went into the hospital this year and my sister and I had to take care of our handicapped Mother.

Not only did my new Secret Santa "Hero" get me this, he also got me the Lootin' Wizards Character Marker Pack expansion. This is so cool! It really enhances the look of the game, and it has MORE cards
First thing I did as a Print-n-Play gamer was get the boards laminated and cut apart. I've played 4 games this past week! We L-O-V-E it! kiss We have only played the standard game thus far, but I cannot wait to try the "cutthroat" version arrrh

But that was not all - out of the blue, I got a package from Noble Knight Games. I had placed an order a week prior on some games for my eldest nephew, whom I have secretly been converting from a videogamer into a "real" gamer (boardgamer) this year devil (I am working on his brother, too). When I opened it, I was surprised to find it wasn't what I had ordered at all. Instead it was something I have had on my wishlist for a long time but have not found a copy because it is out of print. Santa obviously knew I was a Sci-Fi fan and I love playing "eclectic" games, so he got me Sucking Vacuum,


This was my first year doing Secret Santa, and I have to say I've enjoyed myself immensly. It was great shopping for games for someone else's gift, packing it up and shipping it off, knowing how they would feel while they were opening the big box of joy I sent. I never expected to be so excited about my *own* gift.

Santa, you've made this Texas Longhorn Elf a happy woman!

Last friday I got 2 gifts from my Secret Santa. Since they were so nicely wrapped and it's almost christams, I decided to wait and open them on christmas day.

Thank you Secret Santa!

PS - Considering the sizes of the boxes and my wishlist, I have some suspicions

- x - x - x Edit Dec 28th

Wow! It turns out I was wrong on part of my suspicions The bigger box was in fact this awsome game!

Along with it came
Power Grid: The New Power Plant Cards
This one I got right laugh

I can't wait to try them out. THANKS SANTA, YOU RULE!!!

Dearest Santa,

It is fast approaching Christmas and our birthdays too. We have been yearning to receive the special Secret Santa gift which you had chosen for us.

Finally BGLS came to deliver the parcel to our place at abt 11pm last night (20 Dec 09). It was not just one gift but two from my Santa. You made our day!

Santa, you are the greatest! Thanks a million for your generous gifts of Tales of the Arabian Night and Dominion: Seaside! We have not played both games before. Going to try Dominion: Seaside with my wife tonight. Will be getting 3 packs of sleeves for the Seaside cards too.


Merry Christmas to you and your family, Santa! You ROCK!

Updated on 22 Dec 09 - Tales of the Arabian night seem to be a very exciting but long game. Will save it for the holiday season cos wifey was very tired from a long day at work yesterday. So we decided to play Dominion: Seaside (High seas variant) last night instead and I won our first game! The orange action: duration cards offer very interesting strategies. The gold coins are very cool and heavy enough and so are the Embargo tokens. Had laminated all the 25 blue placeholder cards and also placed an order for 3 packs of sleeves for the cards. Once again thanks a bunch, Santa!

Cheers,
awayf

My Secret Santa gift has arrived, and what a joy it is!

My Secret Santa inquired about my family so I was already guessing a little bit that there would be something for my wife and 2 boys.

The first thing we saw was a gift for my 5-year old: Stomp Rocket

What a great gift, both the 5-year old and the 1-year old were having a blast!

Then there were 2 books in there:

&


Then there's a cooperative game for all of us: Berries, Bugs & Bullfrogs

And a game for my wife: Sudoku Challenge

Then a bluffing game I really like: Liar's Dice

And last but not least the big box: The Downfall of Pompeii

To my US Secret Santa: a big big thank you from all of us. You rock!

This was my first Secret Santa, and what an experience it has been. Count me in for next year!

My wife won't let me open my game until x-mas, but I've peeked inside the box and think this might be it. Which would be great, since I love the base game even if I don't get to play it enough.

But either way it's getting a gift from a total stranger somewhere in the world that's the real treat. Thanks, santa.

On wednesday the 9th of december, the postman passed by myhouse with a box. I wasn't home to receive it, so the next day, I collected it at the same time as sending off another box to my secret santa target.

The box is large and weighs about two games :o]) so I am very, very, very exited about it! I was going to wait to post here as I'm also waiting to open the box and see what's in it. (The box was sent by an online store, and I don't know if the content is giftwrapped)

However, checking the "most popular secret santa games (2009)", I noticed that only 19% of the receivers that posted here are waiting to open their gift.
To try to up that number a bit, I decided to post the arrival of a box that I will open on christmas eve (=> probably early in the evening...)

Here's a picture of the box:



Not long now, not long...



EDIT

That is three games! Not two, but three! This is really fantastic!

Die Macher
Day & Night
Saboteur

/EDIT



EDIT

Got two plays in of Day & Night. First as Day, second as night. Lost both. Great fun. I sense there are many more to come!

/EDIT



EDIT

Still had to change the title game for this geeklist entry...

It’s arrived!

My two (yes, two!) packages arrived safely and in good time from Santa's elves working hard at his Shire Games UK base. Nicely wrapped in festive paper with depictions of the generous gift-giver himself.

The first package appeared to be of natural board game proportions but it was the second package that intrigued. The height and width of a board game yes, but very thin and sturdy. My excitement got the better of me and I sneaked a peak at both. Unwrapping the contents as carefully as possible I first revealed... Power Grid. This is the second year in a row that Santa has used his inscrutable powers to choose the "board game I was most likely to acquire next". This confirms my suspicion that although Santa adopts many guises and faces, he is in fact the same person. Like Doctor Who without the blue box.

Powergridbeing the third highest rated game on Board Game Geek would have been a worthy present enough on its own but upon revealing the contents of the second package I found that Santa had generously added the Power Grid - Korea/China
board as well. This year has been a time when I have dipped a toe into the potentially choppy "next-step" waters (from the safety of security of the "gateway" paddling pool) and Power Grid seems to fall into the former category. Both presents now lie wrapped up under my tree but I’m looking forward greatly to getting the game to the table over Christmas.

Thank you very much Santa for your gifts and I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas and a happy 2010. A virtual mince pie and glass of sherry is on its way to you!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Dear Santa,

I began to doubt that you existedcry!! I would read about all the other gifts received but my impatience got the better of me!! I doubted, I whined, I complained to my wife and maybe even cried just a little bit. Then today, I head "You have a package" and lo and behold what do you know? A package from Santa with a return address from....where......wtf? Buffalo, NY? Then I think, surely Santa is immune from the credit crunch?
No way can it be from Santa, Santa lives at the North Pole!!! I ask my wife, "Is the package vibrating?", (I vaguely remember that modern bombs don't tick, they vibrate), "No" was the reply.......For some reason today my little guardian angel was absent and only the devil was speaking with me....opppppeennn.....oopppEENN......OPEN!!!! I open the package tentatively, fingers shaking, my heart beating....DAMN IT!!!!! The presents are wrapped!!! I look to my left shoulder knowing full well that my angel was never there, I look to my right and was does devil he say? OPEN!@!!!!!
Oh Santa, THANK YOU so much!!!

After much anticipation, my secret santa gift finally came today. I received three games...WOW! The first one I opened was

off of my wish list.

Then, I opened

another one off my wish list.

Then, last but not least, I opened Modern Art. I have never played this one before, but my SS felt like I would enjoy it based on my likes.

I am so excited to play these! Thanks Secret Santa! Merry Christmas!

The doorbell rang this evening, and as soon as the UPS delivery guy handed me the package I looked at the sending address. Santa Claus! And he sent me the game that I most desired to have. I look forward to playing Cosmic Encounter tomorrow with the family. Thank you so much!

Today I picked up a package in the mail, from my secret santa. I decided to open the cardboard box assuming my santa would probably have gift wrapped the gift if it was meant to be a secret until Christmas. And what do I find in the box? No less than 3 items - the only one not in gift wrap was the game Incan Gold - I still have no clue what the other two gifts are, but I'll find out in a few days time now

EDIT: It is now past Christmas, and I have opened the other two packages as well, which were Colossal Arena and Steam !!!

Thanks, secret santa!

I was very pleased to get a package from my Santa today and find a game that has long been on my wishlist, Ticket to Ride: Marklin! My wife and I have played this and really enjoyed it so I am sure we will get a lot of use out of it! Thanks Santa!
