For those of you who are new to the Secret Santa List:

I run this list as a central location to let your Secret Santa know when your (hopefully much appreciated) gift has arrived.

Use this list to record what your Secret Santa 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! This assists those of us who read the list regularly as recipients are adding their gifts in a chronological order.

In years past this list has been heavily monitored as the gifting season approaches and I am sure the same will hold true this year.

I find it very handy to put a link on your profile page so your Secret Santa knows where you have posted the feedback so s/he doesn't have to sort through 2000 entries to find yours quickly.


To see all previous years' editions of this list and to give the new Secret Santa participants an idea of how this works, look at these links:

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"



To see Simon Hunt's statistical breakdown of previous years' Secret Santa:

UPDATE New list: Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2010


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



IMPORTANT - When you get your gift(s), take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than place a comment at the bottom of the list. This helps the statisticians out there.

A good example of how to make an entry containing multiple gifts is located at: this entry.

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

Today I recieved a package from Infinity Games, and since I haven't ordered anything from them, guess it must be from my Secret Santa.

 


I'm still trying to guess what's inside, where my Secret Santa is from, and finally his real/secret identity.

So far I'm down to the following countries:

Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles, Australia, Fiji, Nauru, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu or Kiribati, but have no clues as to what could be inside the package.

Edit: So I guessed the country, but I guessed the wrong person. Still Santa told me to let my wife open and give me the smallest of the presents.

She pulled out
Zooloretto: Rio Grande Games Expansion Pack #2


Now I think I've found my secret santa, as I've noticed that he is sneaking around where I've been. Sent him a new mail and we will see if I get any more presents pre christmas.

Edit: Yes I guessed my Secret Santa, it's

who is behind it all. He also allowed me to open yet another package, so my wife pulled out
Memoir '44: Tigers in the Snow


Now there is only one package left, and it has to wait until christmas.

Thank you "Secret" Santa

Edit: Well, since Santa gave me permission, I immediately jumped of my chair and reached on top of the cupboard where the brown box was waiting for me. This time I pulled out
Memoir '44: Sword of Stalingrad


So just one more time:
Thank you "Secret" Santa

Santa was on the fast track for me this year. Usually my presents must be at the bottom of the bag. But not this year! I was so confused I had was completely surprised that is was my BBG gift. And what a gift, tantrum inducing when my son learned that it was not for him. I assured him that we would be playing it together for years to come. He eventually calmed down and decided to mail himself to Santa.


Thanks Santa for the wonderful gift!

Thank You Santa!!

My Santa is amazing!

First of all it was very nice surprise that he really studied my profile and ratings. You see, most of the stuff in top of my wishlist was unfortunately either "out of stock" or "not yet available". He then had an idea of a game that was not on my wishlist or in rated games, but he thought I would like based on his research. So he asked my permission of going "off-the-list"... awesome!

Then I got mail that the package was on the way. It was so much fun trying to anticipate what could be something that would fit my profile and likings but was not in my wishlist! And when the package finally came, it was just 100% awesome!! Epic adventures in "The Realms of Terrinoth". Santa did his homework superbly! I just wasn't expecting anything this BIG!!

PS. Of course I would have patiently waited until Christmas before opening the gift, but my Santa asked me to open it so he could hear if I liked the present. And YES, I REALLY LIKE IT! And also don't mind about getting to open it early...

I received a package from Amazon last Friday and my Secret Santa had hinted that it was on the way so I was pretty sure that it was my present! My Secret Santa also gave me strict instructions to burn any envelopes that were found when opening the box, so I did:




There you go, Secret Santa! The surprise was not ruined! (If you're wondering, I had my sister check to make sure there wasn't anything terribly important inside. It was just the packing slip, apparently.)

My Secret Santa did make me wait until today (Monday) to open it to "test my resolve" but it was worth it.

Thank you to my awesome Secret Santa!!! This will get played during Thanksgiving for sure.

I think my Santa must have had jets attached to his Reindeer as my presents turned up on Friday! Anyway, my Santa officially rocks, not only did I get Small World, a game I had been lusting after since Essen, but I also got the Tales and Legends expansion



Then there were also some pink train meeples stuff in the box, which I'm a little confused over, but will make them work hard on my wifes Ticket To Ride board and some card holders

Santa, thanks! You rock and I hope your Santa rocks too!

P.s. I should also point out that my Santa taunted me to last till Christmas Day to open the present. I thought I can do it, even though it's 36 days away! Then my daughter came in every so often and poked the present and I managed to last an hour ho hum

I'm hangin out at BGG Con (had a blast) and my wife joins me Friday night. Pretty much the first thing she said was that I had 3 packages delivered. So the rest of the Con I thought about that. I actually sat down to demo Small World and almost bought it at the con. I'm glad I waited because Small World
was the big gift from my Secret Santa.

I was going to wait until Christmas to open the presents, but got a friendly nudge from my Secret Santa on Sunday. Glad he did because I'm not sure I could have waited anyway.

The first box I opened was Mr. Jack Pocket
That looks like a really fun game and I can't wait to sit down and play it with my wife (once we get through the "Get Ready for Thanksgiving" rush).

The second box I opened was Word on the Street
That will come in handy on Thanksgiving since most of the relatives will be at our house. I'm slowly turning them onto various party games. Maybe I'll grow a gamer out of my nephew & neices yet. This will be great because all the lil ones are in school now and spelling always needs reinforcement.

Finally I opened the last box and found Small World. What a great set of gifts.
Thanks a whole lot to my Secret Santa, I hope your holiday season is great!

It's a small world, after all...

My wife and I returned from BGG.con yesterday evening. This afternoon, the gift from my Secret Santa arrived.

Baltimore and Ohio! Right at the top of my Wish List!! And a coupon from Funagain to boot. Thank you, Saint Nick!!

Now, this following cryptic message is one only my Secret Santa will understand or appreciate.

Santa, while we were at BGG.con, we won one of the random prize drawings. Among the games we received was... Namibia.

It is a small world, after all, isn't it?

Thank you again, Santa!!

Today while I was at work my wife called me telling me a package had arrived for me in the mail and that it was from Canada! At first I was puzzled. I couldn't remember having ordered anything from Canada! But then it hit me! It was my Secret Santa!

When I returned home I rushed to open the package and inside there were two gift wrapped boxes along with a very nice card. One of the boxes was big, tall and square so it was easy enough to guess its content! Castle Ravenloft was now a part of my collection. Hurray!

The smaller box was also square but I couldn't think of anything this size in my wishlist. When I opened it I saw that it was Pandemic: On the Brink! I didn't have it in my wishlist but I have the main game and I was thinking of buying it at some point. So it was definitely a very welcome addition!



My Secret Santa I have no words to thank you! You are truly amazing and you have brought me a lot of joy! I can only hope that your own Secret Santa is as generous as you!

I wish for the best for you and your family.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Our Secret Santa is sooooo awesome!
The secret fellow sent us our gift so fast, that no human means of transportation could have been responsible for such speed in delivery.

Pure North Pole expertise!
I'm sure it must have been the reindeer.

Word on the Street is a game I have contemplated getting for quite some time.
I am so thrilled and I know it will be a great party game.

Secret Santa you are the greatest!
I'm saying all this because I somehow opened the package.
I'm not saying I meant too...it just happened.
I'm not saying I have done this before...just...well, I have...I admit it.

Secret Santa even informed me that there was a second package on the way.
I think I may have blown it!

I may now be receiving a box of those chocolate Ex-lax cookies.
Oh well, I still love this game and I will play it with my relatives over Thanksgiving!

*edit*
Our second package arrived!

This is quite a welcome surprise!
We were inundated with family the past few days for Thanksgiving.
This one stayed unopened under the tree, until the relatives all left.
We finally played it last night, our first night alone.
A great Euro style game and one we will enjoy for a long time, I'm sure.
Thank you Secret Santa!
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Well, first time adding to a geeklist, first time doing the Secret Santa Program.

My Santa was able to gift me two games, Pompeii which I added in this entry. I was also gifted with Pandemic:On the Brink . Both are games I've been looking to add to my collection, so Bonus. Great picks and I'm very thankful.

I'm hoping to get to play them very soon. I wasn't able to get this done much sooner(and not sure I've done it right at this time,) but I did receive the gifts fairly quickly, which was amazing.

Great gifts and fast. Santa, Thanks!

My SS gift arrived today. Nicely wrapped and everything, but ufortunately the online retailer sent me the invoice and tracking info. So I already know that it's Chaos in the Old World - a game I've wanted to play badly since it came out. Now I just have to convince myself (and my wife who's very strict when it comes to christmas gifts) that it's okay to open it prematurely now that I know what it is.

Now I just need to find something for my target. It's gonna be eastwardbound.

Got my gift from Secret Santa a few days ago. I was able to resist the urge to open the parcel up until yesterday but that was it.

I dug in and I aslo found this:


A Game of Thrones: The Card Game – Kings of the Sea

Two awsome expansions for my favorite LCG. I am already thinking about gathering my game group for a tournament at my house. We can now play with the 6 houses!

Thanks a lot Santa! You are too generous!

Merry Christmas!

PS - Got to go take care of my target now. He only completed his wishlist after BGG Con...

Whilst I was out of the house my partner heard a knock at the door. She thought it was me returning from the shops with our three year old. Half dressed and wearing no jeans - she was catching up on some sleep - she went to the door and could make out a tall figure bending down over a smaller figure. So she flung the door open to find ... a delivery man picking up two boxes blush

One is a large box (12 x 10 x 18 inches) from Leisure Games in London; the other a smaller box from the US. Normally I immediately open my Secret Santa present but this year I've got a diversion - my preorder of Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 - ? from GMT Games. However, the size of the box from Leisure Games suggests there may be more than one game in there. Very tempting but I'm going to stay strong and hope that exploring and playing Labyrinth will keep me occupied until Christmas Day. Wish me luck!

EDIT: Christmas day morning - Happy Christmas Everyone!

I managed to hold on until now. I open the box and amongst the packing peanuts I find:

Liberia: Descent Into Hell – The Liberian Civil War 1989-1996


and Struggle for the Galactic Empire


Could quite easily be the Wargame Secret Santa but these were on my wishlist and are the perfect choices for me. Thank you very much.

But that's not all. Two hours later I was sat next to the box full of packing peanuts when it dawned on me that it was deeper than I first thought. I reached into the box and then realised that what I thought was the bottom of the box was in fact a dividing piece of cardboard - a false bottom if you like. Under this I found:

Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game



I'm speechless! An absolutely amazingly generous Secret Santa! I cannot thank you enough.

My parents received a package from FedEx yesterday with 3 wrapped gifts.
Don't worry Santa they are hiding them from me until X-MAS.
Thank you very much and now I really can't wait until XMAS gets here.

Edit:Turns out there was a smaller box hidden amongst the peanuts, so make that 4 gifts I can't open until Christmas.

Edit: Received another pkg from my Secret Santa. This one had A Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie as well as 2 other wrapped gifts. Based on the size and feel I would guess they are also books maybe even the other two books in the series.

Turns out I was wrong:

Two books by Ian M Banks One of them is appropriately titled "The Player of Games"


Edited to include games here for purpose of calculations:
Small World: Be Not Afraid...SamuraiTwilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shattered EmpireVikings

Actually we already own Archaelogy the card game.....it was under my Owned Collection but nevertheless, thanks very much, Santa for the surprise gift which you mentioned in your geekmail. Perhaps we shall give this extra copy of Archaelogy the card game to one of our friend.

Dixit shall see a lot of play this Christmas season.
It was in my (2) Love to have wishlist.

Once again, thank you Santa! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all!

P/S - Thanks everyone for your advice. We have posted the wrapped gift.

My Santa sent me a copy of Pandemic, a game I've been dying to try for quite some time (I hear the entertainment is contagious!).

Santa kindly also sent me a copy of Fliegen Klatchen, one of the few games that my wife actually likes.

Big thanks, Santa!
