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.

501. Board Game: Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game [Average Rating:7.10 Overall Rank:342] [Average Rating:7.10 Unranked]

My package arrived yesterday. I had been tracking it for a while, so when it showed I called my wife and asked her to go out into the snow to pick it up. She opened the outer box and told me there were two packages inside, both wrapped. I had wanted to wait until Christmas, but the excitement got the better of me and I opened them.

I opened the larger of the two first and found Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game. I am thrilled. That was the top game on my wishlist, and I can't wait to play with my gaming group. My wife has also agreed to give it a go, and my brother volunteered to help me paint miniatures if I decide to go that route.

I think that I was even more excited when I opened the second smaller box. My Santa had been great about contacting me to find out what I was interested in, and I had mentioned that I like shorter two-player games, and that I would be interested in something not on my list that I may have missed because it was not related to any of the games I have already.

Santa chose Battle Line.



At two players and thirty minutes it is exactly what I look for. I don't know how I missed something like this that has such a high rank. And it is my first Knizia, a name that I see flying around the site all the time. This one is hitting the table tonight.

Thanks Santa, and thanks again! I couldn't be happier.

My parcel arrived a few days ago with the help of Paul Lister's Boardgameguru. My wife dutifully intercepted the parcel and has hidden it at another location. So I'll update this when the wrapping has been ripped off.

UPDATE: It's Christmas Day and my gift was a shiny copy of 'Shogun'. I am over the moon with this. It's sitting next to my copy of 'Civilization' which my wife got me. Lots of fun in the week ahead.

Thank you Santa. I hope you have a great Christmas.

Wow, my first year participating and it's going to be hard to top! I'm terrible with anticipation as it is, as a kid I ALWAYS threw up on Christmas morning, so I knew this was going to be torture, in a good way of course! Two days after the lists were sent out, the checking the front step began. At first it was just once a day. Then twice. Then I started walking around to the front door from the garage instead of going in the garage. Then I started checking neighbor's packages to make sure santa hadn't delivered to the wrong house. (hey, it could happen!) My wife just laughed at me; my son got in on it though, asking me regularly if I'd heard a noise out front...

While I waited, my awesome santa went ahead and sent me 30 to buy my avatar, so I set about using my less than adequate graphical skills creating a tribute to put in that spot.

When the box did finally arrive, I was in the office and my wonderful wife and son called JUST to tell me a big box from coolstuffinc had arrived. After one of the longest days at work, I arrive home to find this:


That's a big box... and inside I find 7 Wonders AND Dominion: Prosperity!!


As a bonus, and possibly because my son had been such a great little santa's helper in keeping me in a frenzy, he got a bonus gift... PACKING PEANUTS!!


Thank you thank you thank you Santa! Two of my most wanted games, an avatar (guess I have to stop lurking and actually post now...), and a ton of fun for my family making fun of me. Have a wonderful Christmas, I know I already have! My only regret is that I was not at home to see the purple and white FedEx sleigh and reindeer. Maybe next year.

Upon arriving home last night I found a box from Funagain Games tucked next to my door. I quickly brought it inside to see what it might contain Lo and behold it was full of awesome!

Taluva has been on my wish list for quite a while - a great little tile placing game with plenty of opportunity to screw your neighbor. My group has played it many times so I'm glad to finally add it to my collection.

Tichu


A classic that I've not had and not gotten to play much - hopefully with a copy in the house now I'll see it come our more

Small World: Be Not Afraid...
 

Small World: Tales and Legends


Small World has been getting a lot of play around here, so these will be great to change things up!

Thank You Santa!

My Santa(s) were totally awesome this year! This was a surprise pick, not on my list. BUT, my Santa ferreted out that a) I didn't have any civil war games, and b) I was really interested in this battle. I don't know if he knew I liked block games or not, but that's an added bonus.

This baby was stickered up and ready to play the day after it arrived!

I BELIEVE SANTA!!! I BELIEVE!!!

After weeks of waiting for Santa to send me some kind of sign (but at the same time being very content knowing that Santa is very busy this time of year), I arrived home from work yesterday to find not 1, but 2 packages from Elfazon on my front porch! Upon opening them I found a wrapped gift in each. And each box also contained an envelope that said something to the effect of, "Don't spoil your gift. Open your gift before you open this envelope."

Unfortunately, one of the elves at Elfazon must have opened one of those envelopes before shipping off the gift because a packing slip was loose in one box. Out of the corner of my eye I caught several fateful words before I was able to clench my eyes shut. I asked my wife to remove the paper, but the damage had been done and those words, both joyous and horrific (the momentary thought, however brief, of Santa's disappointment at the accidental peekage), left me to believe that one present is none other than:



However, Santa, let me assure you that both packages will remain unopened until at least Christmas Eve. And the other packing slip envelope will be kept stashed away until then, too.

THANK YOU, SANTA!!!!!!!

Update (7-Dec): I came home from work today to find a THIRD package on my front porch from Santa! Santa, you are the absolute best!!!

Update (31-Dec): Sorry, Santa, that this update took so long to get posted. I've been busy with work, family, cleanup, and family cleanup and just haven't had the time, but I'm making time today to update this.

Here are the loving wrapped gifts:



The First gift was indeed Dominion Alchemy which will see much playtime on game night (didn't get a picture of that one, sorry)

The Second gift was:



Oh, yeah, baby, take it all off!

And the third gift was none other than:



Thank you for everything, Santa! You are the coolest ever!

Edit: corrected misspelling

He saw my MS State microbadge and correctly assumed I was an alumni. He is a student at MSU and wanted to to talk to a fellow Bulldog. Yesterday I received my game from him. He sent me Mr. Jack in New York. I really enjoy the original game and Mr Jack Pocket. I can't wait to try it out. Thank you very much Cory, and if I do make it up to Starkville I will let you know.

17th Century Farming and Epic Cylon Skulduggery (hopefully not at the same time)! Secret Santa, thank you and I must say, excellent choices! Your generosity knows no bounds:






and Animeeples!



I got a call from the wife while at work saying something to the effect of "Honey, you got this big box and I don't know what it is". I of course replied with it being my BGG Secret Santa gift to which she said "Oh! Great! You need to come home and open it so we can see what it is!" I love my wife.

And yes, before you naysayers get involved, I had originally wanted to wait until Christmas but Santa himself told me to open and enjoy immediately. Which of course, also made me think about recipes telling me to "serve immediately while hot" which then got us started making oatmeal chocolate raisin cookies and...well, back to topic. Thank you, SS!

Dear Secret Santa Somewhere in the World....

There was no way I was waiting until Xmas to open this package. I can't express strongly enough my gratitude and appreciation for your efforts on my behalf.

I didn't realize when I put this on my wishlist that it was already disappearing from the distribution channel. I really appreciate the effort it took to track down a copy of this game (from half-way 'round the world). I'm absolutely thrilled.

Thank you very much. I hope your generosity comes back to you ten-fold. My best to you and yours.


Cheers
Justin/Dogm.

I received a beautiful (and large!) box today from Santa. Opening I discovered 5(!) packages. Oh boy, I certainly must have been a good boy this year. I'm also a lucky boy, because the grubby Christmas Grinches (their uniform says 'Customs') sent it through without a peep. No greasy hands looking for their usual cut.

Woo-hoo!

Waiting until Christmas to open. Update to come after opening.

===
Update after Christmas day

Opened the five packages, one of which was marked "open last". Opening the first four, I found Catan, Merchants of Amsterdam, Die Erbtante, and Bohnaparte. Since my Santa sent from Germany, all came as German versions. No fears, as my Santa thoughtfully included rules for all in English as the 5th package. (What? Not Icelandic??? ). Save for Settlers, none of these were on my radar screen at all. Very happy to try them all. Great fun trying all the new games.

Cool, a courier delivered a package today. Unable to resist opening before X-mas, but at least I waited till my SO a2na got home.

And so we just played a game of my new Pick & Pack, a great little 2-player game we've so far only been able to play at cons. (And a2na won, 39-30.) Now that we own P&P at home, it will see more play!

Not only that, but Santa also sent the Power Grid expansion map:

Power Grid: Brazil/Spain & Portugal


so I hope to get a group together for Power Grid on this board soon!

And there was a letter from Santa which was quite nice to read, including a trilingual "Merry Christmas / Wesołych Świąt / Gajan Kristnaskon" in English, Polish, and Esperanto. Santa also wrote that he hopes to meet up someday and that this is not so implausible. Hmm, now I am curious - perhaps Essen or BGG.CON? - and hope that it happens.

Thanks very much Secret Santa! Happy holidays!

THANK YOU SANTA!!!

So over the weekend a big box arrived at my house. I wasn't sure, but could it possibly be??? It was addressed to me, but then I saw it was from CoolStuffInc. Yes, it had to be! But then I had to decide should I wait or open it now. After waiting a day, I finally opened it up...only to find...

...TWO WRAPPED PRESENTS in a sea of packing snow!

So now I feel really bad about actually opening them. But then, I am lucky that my wife is Jewish, and so we traditionally celebrate both Chanukah AND Christmas...SO, I decided it was OK to open one for Chanukah and hold on to the other for Christmas.

I opened the smaller one to find HANSA TEUTONICA! Thank you thank you, Santa. That was HIGH on my Wish List.

Now that would have been enough, but now I get to anticipation of waiting to open the other. Looking over my Wish List and looking at the shape and size, I have a few guesses. But I am going to wait and time will tell if I am right.

THANK YOU AGAIN SANTA! YOU'RE THE BEST!

Christmas Day edit: Santa, if you're still reading this (because with a list this size, I doubt anyone else will be reading my edited post at this time), I can't believe I made, but I actually waited all the way to Christmas Day to open...(!) World Without End!!! Thanks again for sending TWO games. I just finished watching the Pillars of the Earth miniseries, so now I'm really anxious to read the sequel and play the game!!!

Santa gave me such nicely wrapped presents, that I just cant unwrap them. My wife however disagrees. It is currently a debate in the household.

However, there was an included packing list, so *I* know what we got, its like SS pay it forward. Since My wife also celebrates Chanukah, I think we will open these on the final night of Chanukah to celebrate.

I'm very much looking frward to playing B&O again. We played at BGG.CON and loved the game. My wife really really wants to get this to the table again.

Also included, much to my delight, were two zman card games. The King Commands and Bottle Imp. Two games we had been enjoying and, at times, regretting not having already. This is just wonderful, and cant wait to play these!!

My Secret Santa as it turns out comes from a place I had been to not two weeks before I received my package.

I waited a whole day before opening the gifts.

The first thing I opened was Le Havre: Le Grand Hameau Which tipped me off to what the largest of the packages was going to be so I went for the not so obvious box next which turned out to be one of those great little games I've just never pulled the trigger on for an order, I Go!.

Of course Le Havre was the compliment to the expansion I had opened first.

A great batch of gifts that will bring me and my group a lot of fun. Thanks Santa!

Now I'm hoping to see my target post their gift.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Santa!

I was away hunting (no deer with red noses were harmed) for the last few days and today I came home to find my present!

I was truly hoping for Tales of the Arabian Nights, I don't know how you do it but you knew exactly what I wanted. How did you know the most fun I had at BGG was playing this game? Where you there at the table?

I also want to thank you for the stocking stuffer,


Mr. Jack: Pocket.

That was a lovely surprise. There has been a lot of excitement surrounding Mr. Jack: Pocket, I can't wait to find out what all the buzz is all about.

I am going to have so much fun playing my new games with family this weekend and over the Christmas holiday.

Thank you SO much for your generosity

Eeeeeee! I got my package today and opened it with abandon! And what to my wondering eyes should appear? FOUR brand new games, no less, my dear! My santa is insanely generous!surprise

In addition to 7 Wonders, which Santa picked from the very tippy top of my wishlist, I received the following games:

Jaipur

This is totally amazing because I had just heard of this game for the first time in the last couple of days, and thought it looked like something I would love. Santa really IS pyschic!

Thunderstone

Something I simply had to have! I won a copy of it at a local gaming event over the weekend and was concerned about possible duplication, but my college-age daughter has graciously agreed to relieve me of my second copy.

And finally:
Fresco


And that's not all! Santa told me he's sending something from his hometown too (and has hinted that his hometown in somewhere in The Netherlands)! Crazy goodness! Crazy, I say!

Sinterklaas, thank you so very, very much for your amazing generosity and thoughtfulness! Merry Christmas to all!

A mysterious package was waiting for me on my return from a week-long business trip. I opened it of course: a perfect choice from my SS - this will provide hours of father-son "entertainment" throughout the holiday season.

Thanks Santa!

Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #2 – Rome and the Barbarians
Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #1 – Greece & Eastern Kingdoms


Santa sent my gift a few weeks ago and I finally broke down yesterday and opened it. Santa was very thoughtful as he gave me something for every member of my family. First, he gave me these two expansions to the wonderful Commands and Colors: Ancients series, a game I can play with my wife. Also in the box was Giro Galoppo, a game that I can play with my 5 yr old daughter. We play board games every Friday night with her, so this week I'll surprise her with this game. Thank you Santa for your generosity this year!!

This is one of the most amazing boxes I've received on xmas. I opened the package, and I was more than happy to look through the peanut and find Mr. Jack. It's a two player game and I play mostly with my wife. I assumed Coolstuff overpacked the box. I mean, it was a big box for such a small game, but I've dealt with places that were running low on boxes around this time and just needed to get a package off...

And then here i go looking for the packing slip to shred and i find another package. Flying Frogg is one of my favorite publishers. I love grass roots and I remember going through Gencon and seeing this guys hustle to sell the first zombie game. I was very happy. My secret santa is very generous, and I only hope that the smile on their face is as big as the smile on mine when they open their gift. So now, I put my hands back into it to find the packing slip. I thought afterthe first time, there was a 50/50 shot that a small little expansion might be in there and that's how i found invasion. But I did not expect...

This was my first year joing the Secret Santa as I had just joined last year and didn't read it as often as I do now to understand what it was. I had alot of fun gettnig stuff for my own target, but never did I imagine that my own Santa would be so overwhelmingly generous.

THANK YOU SANTA!




Thats right folks, Santa went above and beyond and blessed me with:

Le Havre with Le Havre: Le Grand Hameau
Twilight Struggle
Brass

Truly a wonderful gift. Now I have to figure out which to play first! Always a great delimma for a gamer.

Eidt: Shame all the thumbs to entries we put up didn't go to our Santas rather than us. I know my deserves a few thousand thumbs up

Really, this was a complete surprise. Even my wife was jaw dropped. This is one of those things on my wishlist that wasn't in a " special novemember update" . My secret santa has looked in my games collection and realized some of my little faves. Seriously, this was an amazing assortment of presents. I know everyone can't give as generous as this, but i hope that what u receive makes u as happy as i am.

My Secret Santa was very generous this year. I had plans to purchase Rattus and Perry Rhodan this holiday season as a gift for myself, so I'm glad I waited. All three arrived beautifully wrapped but in a moment of weakness I opened everything today.

Thanks again, Secret Santa!
