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.

451. Board Game: Cornucopia [Average Rating:5.97 Overall Rank:4780]

OK, so the Amazon box package 5 days ago and without hesitation I opened it, only to find a gift-wrapped box inside with a gift tag announcing it was a gift from my BGG SS. Now I had a tremendous dilemma, do I wait for Christmas or give in to my impulses and open it now.And so it sat in the family room next to the sopt where the tree will be set up this weekend, calling to me every time I passed.

Well, yesterday I caved in and just ripped the darned thing open. A game!!!! Cornucopia has been on my wish list since reading Enders Wiggins glowing review earlier this year, a seemingly perfect choice for that filler or family game we all need sometime. Now the rules have been read and we’re ready to play.

Thanks, not so secret Santa! Your hint about a bounty that is coming my way now makes sense. A great gift, and the first on this list I bet! Thanks!

****But wait, there apparently is more on the way..........



No pretense here, I ripped that darn thing open as soon as it came today. A "must have" for me, which I thought was unavailable. Double thanks!!

****And then, totally unexpectedly, a third box arrived, which of course I had to tear apart, and to my amazement, two more games were inside:



This had on my list, out of print, but must have just been reprinted while I wasn't looking. So this one was completely unexpected, you sneaky red guy.

And finally,



Santa, you are amazing! The best! Thanks again and now I have to punch some gaming bits..........

This little beauty showed up earlier this week -- it'll go over nicely with our co-op happy gaming group. I also got Agricola: Farmers of the Moor for the sub-group who loves Agricola.

Thank you, Santa! We will enjoy this for many months.

My Secret Santa is great!

He wrote me some messages (he even tried to write it in Slovenian language whistle) and used to let me know to wait on package...
On Friday my mom called me, that the package from Germany arrived. Since all games from last Europian Math trade allready came, I knew, that this package is from my Secret Santa...

Since some of my post goes to my parents address (I moved on my own 2 years ago), and I also didn´t my address here on BGG, I visited my parents on Saturday. Ok, the visit was short, to tell the thruth, I went there to pick up my packagemodest... And what a great suprise! Not only Tobago was inside, there was also Dominion: Intrigue.


p.s.: I was checking my Wishlist last week and I told to myself: aargh, I should put Tobago upper on my list, now is somewhere in the middle...
And Dominion is one of my favourite games, so this years SS present was perfect for me! Thanks, Santa!!!


I can't wait to try my new games!

Thanks to my SS and Marry christmas and happy new year to everyone here on BGG.

Fantastic present from Secret Santa! On top of my "wish list," although that was not obvious from the list. (Santa must have ESP, or other supernatural ability derived from watching "The Closer.") Thanks! This game will be enjoyed very much.

Blast!

I ALWAYS wait until Christmas to open my SS gift. (Usually later than Christmas, in fact -- I wait until I have my yearly 24 hours of gaming with Jaels and Faqtotum, where we all open our SS gifts together.)

But this box just came in... and it was from a shop in Florida called CoolStuffInc. And the little customs slip said "Collectibles."
So my mind started crunching numbers, trying to figure out what it was that I had ordered and had completely forgotten about.
(I normally get a box from a Canadian online game store, and I *know* that I have to let the box alone until Christmas. But this time, how was I supposed to know?)

I kept trying to remember what I'd ordered, but I couldn't figure it out, so I opened the box. And I was so convinced that this was NOT my SS present, that when I saw the game inside the brown box (a rather large one at that), it took me a second for everything to click into place, and then I realized that I had opened my SS gift ahead of time.

In any case -- Thanks a lot, Santa! I will NOT open the game itself until Christmas. But you can bet there's going to be some major air action over Vietnam this holiday season.

Thanks again!!

Santa came very early and dropped off Campaign Manager, a great game I've played in both prototype and published form but hadn't yet gotten into my collection! Thanks for rectifying that terrible error, Santa!

In my stocking Santa also left these two gems:

Small World: Grand Dames of Small World

Small World: Cursed!

both of which I've played on the iPad Small World app, but never in real cardboard. Woohoo! Thanks Santa, you rock!

I received a package at work and looking at the shipping address I knew at once my Secret Santa had surprised me early. Opening the box, I saw what they had sent, "Ticket to Ride" and was I excited. But something didn't seem right. The package was too big and too heavy for this and foam peanuts. I dug around and felt something hard... a single layer of card board. Something else was down there!

I removed the card board and low and behold...

my "Sneaky" Santa had sent another game! I guess Santa remembered a few years ago when some bad elf stole my Secret Santa package from my front door and was making up for it.

Thank you Secret Santa for making it a wonderful holiday! And Happy Holidays to All!

As luck would have it, my Secret Santa's package arrived just a couple of days before my birthday. In a moment of sheer awesomeness (and because she knows I'm a big kid at heart), my lovely wife suggested that I go ahead and open the box. I almost considered being noble stupid an adult and declining, but my youthful disposition got the better of me.

My Secret Santa is SO awesome! Not only did I get Terra Prime, but Santa also included:
Thurn and Taxis: Power and Glory

...a much-wanted expansion to Thurn & Taxis, one of the family's favorite games.

Yay, Santa!! Thank you so much for making this year all the more special. You did great!!!!

(And kudos to all of the behind-the-scenes work required to make the Secret Santa program such a rousing success. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!)

Last wednesday I received an email from a pobox in McAllen TX saying a fat guy with a white beard and strange custom left a package for me. After several days trying to send someone from Mexico to get the package and having luck with customs at the border we finally got it. Customs officials told the messenger he needed to opened the package, so when I received it it was already opened. To my delightful surprise I saw Claustrophobia!! This one was one of my highly wished games from SS. Here is a pic of what I got at home:



But that was not the end!!! Looking down on the big box I found something else!!! A little Christmas Elf!!!!



Thanks SANTA!!!! This is the best gift I could ever received, Claustrophobia and a beutiful, marvellous, incredible little elf now called Bernie....

Thank you, Santa, it's been great chatting with you, and I hope you have a great Christmas yourself!

Dear Santa,

My day started so happily with my Agricola goodies in my boots, and then I came in working, and froze in the doorway..... there was another package on my very table, with the same gift wrapping as I seen at home.

I just couldn't believe my eyes, was I this good?

Firstly I thought I put it under my Xmas tree, but no, I've been a bit bad, and curious, so I opened it. (Maybe your elf knew this, that's why I got a little "birch" as well - for St. Nicolaus if you've been a bit naughty you got a birch along wiht your present)

And I find Macao well a thank you could hardly tell what I feel right now, but I don't have better words for it, so

THANK YOU VERY-VERY MUCH

And your elf a special thanks too, I don't how he made it

I needed to open my gifts before Christmas to avoid getting duplicates from other people... Sounds convincing, right? whistle

Anyway, there were three games in the huge box, first one of them was extremely hoped Dominion: Intrigue.

Second one was Ingenious also a very much hoped gift.

Third one was a great filler, Coloretto.

The Christmas feeling was completed with one candle, also included in the package.

Thank you Santa!

Santa gift arrived! Since Santa Claus is such a close family member to Sinterklaas (in fact, they are the same person) I am pretty sure he does not mind me opening the package. Especially since it was my birthday yesterday and I have an open line to Sinterklaas

Well packaged, big brown box. Inside a a paper with a print of a Reindeer wishing me a Merry Christmas.

World at War: Operation Garbo is looking at me and I am looking back with a big silly smile on my face. As I pick up my newborn, I see that I got twins! Campaign Manager 2008 is also there! Finally I can let McCain win the elections.

Last year was great, this year is too. I just love getting gifts from unknown BGG geeks.

Thank you Santa and generous giver.

Received a parcel today....wife opened it because I suspected it may be something great. And Yes!!! two WRAPPED presents and a message saying "Secret Santa" with the BGG logo, all from a local store who has probably never done thsi before. Well done! SS for finding a store and getting all that organised, it can't have been easy across borders, timezones and languages!

....Now can't wait for Christmas Day to open them! Already speculating what they are as I haven't seen them in case I guess from their size!

Will update this post at Christmas!

Edit: Wow thanks Secret Santa! So this is what happened... Just before Christmas we packed up our stuff to go to stay near my wife's family back in Yorkshire, England. Naturally I reminded my wife to pack up my 2 SS gifts as I hate to see or even touch them before Xmas (in case I get any ideas - I love surprises!).

So come Xmas day I excitedly unwrap the big SS pressie... Attika!! Cool. I have been after this one for ages and it looks very good. Naturally I look round for present number two (smaller box I know). But... Nowhere to be seen. My wife does a 'huh?' and has a look. Can't find it! Oh no! Must be back home! Pah! . So now I have to wait a week until we get back grrrr. Oh well ....
So this week...

Also, thank you for At the Gates of Loyang, my nice side loves this game.


Thank you for your generosity and for all of the fun taunting this year.

Package arrived on Saturday, a most welcome surprise. As there was nothing saying I couldn't open it, I did so, and found this lovely game waiting for me.

THANK YOU SECRET SANTA!

And Merry Christmas to all!

My Secret Santa send me my gift a wile ago, but I did withstand to open it until now.

Thank you very much, I like the game a lot and do not realy know, why I did not own it to this day.

I played two times now with my girlfriend - I know the game, she did not - and won the first relatively easy. The second one, the game has shown his teeth - or tentacles - in form of bad cards that limited us more and more until the monsters flooded the hole board. Finaly Azatoth came and ate the world. What a depressing end, but still this was fun.

Thank you, Santa, wherever you may live.

My gift arrived last week from Sinterklaas and based on tradition in The Netherlands I opened it last night.

Thank you Santa!

I was preparing to go to university, when someone call in a intercom. I didn't expect anyone and was surprised. It was a courier from EMS. He gave my a huge box about 10 lbs. I was so excited that couldn't write today's date correctly. After courier'd left I was thinking if I should open it or not, but my arms'd already taken paper-cutter and finished up with warp. There were one box in cute blue giftwarp with snowmen, lots of these soft white things and... an invoice.
- Spoiler alert! - flashed in my mind, when I started reading first item in the list which began with "FFG DU...". So I took the invoice out and hide it under the box, before I read any further. But on the back side of the paper was attached ziplock with Panzer General cards.
- Oh... It's unfair!
The day before I'd looked through Fantasy Flight Collect and remembered that DU is an index of Cadwallon games.
So I took the box with snow dudes and discovered another one. Holy Random, it was twice bigger! O_O I was shocked and opened it firstly. It was
Panzer General: Allied Assault

Except that weird and pretty useless scoreboard, the game consisted of small decks of cards and tiles. I was shocked again and very happy because my new solo wargame always could be with me in my bag.
The second box was
Cadwallon: City of Thieves

Yeah! Finally I can replace The Adventurers with much better game. And remade it in a "Thief The Dark Project" way. All these cool components, nice flow of play... Mmm... ^_^



Thank you, my Secret Santa! I hope you've got nice boardgames too. ,) Merry Christmas!
