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.

I got a package yesterday and didn't have time to examine it.

From Italy. Quite a way from Denmark.

Once I got time today, I just had look inside, It didn't weigh too much and had lots of plastic wrapping. Hmm.
The contents were gift wrapped. Nice. Now, we have very little family left and have agreed not to buy each other presents for christmas. I could wait for my birthday (the 26th), but that would just be too much.
So ....

the package revealed The Speicherstadt and Alea Treasure Chest.

meeple Thank you, Santa meeple.
Whoever you are.

Speicherstadt is a great game and this is a great way to get the treasure chest.

Now to find a time and place to play them. I'm not blessed with a wife who plays games.

This year there was no Secret Santa for me. But there was Hogfather himself! devil Wow..

He warned me that the gift will be not big, but really I got a BIG gift. )

Zooloretto Mini

Zooloretto it one of the oldest "must have" games in my wishlist. Every time I buy a game to play with my nephews, I remember about Zooloretto, but every time I buy another game. But now we are able to try this great game.

Also I found all missing add-ons for my Munchkin, Munchkin Cthulhu, and Munchkin Quest in the parcel!

Munchkin Marked For Death
Munchkin Fairy Dust
Munchkin: Waiting For Santa
Munchkin: Santa's Revenge
Munchkin Cthulhu 4: Crazed Caverns
Munchkin Quest: Portal Kombat

Thank you, Secret Sa Hogfather!

and Merry Christmas

My not so secret santa (he put his return address on the package) sent me a copy of Fresco. I figured since Hannukah is over, it was okay to open the box.

There was also a Z-Man Games nightshirt (XL tee shirt for S-sized me).

Thanks, Ryan!

2010-12-29:

Xmas over high time that I updated this entry... Dear Santa, thanks a lot for the great presents! If the new iPod touch had a better camera I would have posted some pictures here....

My wife packed each of the presents so I had thrice the fun of unpacking...

The other two presents were Race for the Galaxy: The Brink of War and Santoska. Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately I had obtained Santoska a couple of weeks ago, but there is a gamer in our group who likes this game as well. So you not only made one gamer happy but two!!!

2010-12-18:

A letter from Canada arrived, saying "I thought I put this in your present" on the back! But before I could open the letter my wife confiscated the letter! Quote: "This belongs to the present so you are not allowed to open it before next Friday..." Just another 6 days...

2010-12-14:

Sitting here at work, browsing this list. The ringing of the phone disrupts my activity: it's a call from my wife that there's a parcel at the customs (or ZOLL as we Germans call it...) and they demand an invoice or something alike! But as I have the best of all wives she went there and - thanks to her charms - she got the parcel without having to pay any customs at all!!!

The only downside: She won't let me near the package for the next 10 days...

Thanks a lot to my Secret Santa from Canada!

After selling off pretty much my whole collection last year due to my job loss, I realized that there aren't a ton of games that are a "must have" for me. I scrambled to update my Wishlist after signing up for Secret Santa and came up with only a handful of games I could think of that I really wanted.

A couple of weeks ago, I received a Geekmail from my Secret Santa which said I had gifts on the way. 'Lo and behold, my Santa sent me two of the games on my Wishlist that I really wanted to own - a copy of the new version of Baltimore & Ohio, and a copy of Power Grid




Thank you so much for your generosity, Santa! May you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

Thank you Santa!

After much taunting (and even some messages going astray) all went quiet. I was starting to worry something had happened to my Santa!

Then a mystery parcel arrived just now with 2 exciting presents!

The smaller of the 2 had started to come apart so I peeked inside and saw

Ubongo! A game I have seen but wasn't on my wish list (its always nice when you get something truly unexpected!)



I was then told by my ill 2 year old that he was going to help me open the other gift...who am I to refuse!

And inside was 7 Wonders! Plus the Mannekin Pis promo!

Thank you Santa! I only added 7 Wonders as it seemed up my street but seemed a bit expensive for a card game. Now I have the best type of present...one that you'd like but probably wouldn't buy for yourself!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas Santa (who is from the Netherlands...according to my detective skills of reading the label on the shipping package!)

EDIT: After a confusing 5 minutes reading the translated rules I realise I have Ubongo Travel Edition! Yay...now off to print out the travel edition rules (its not my fault the box is all in Dutch!)

Just now, when I am finally wrapping up my own Santa gift (I did go through some trouble to get that special game for my target) the tingeling of bells announced the coming of some elves, very cleverly disguised, I must say
As instructed I will wait until Christmas Day before I open this pack.

Thanks Santa for sending me this surprise!!

Merry Christmas to you! laugh

(i'll update of course once I opened my present)

EDIT: When I wrote "Thanks Santa for sending me this surprise!!" I had no idea, really shake After having opened all presents under the tree, my girl friend urged me to open up the last remaining package. This was a sturdy packed carton, from Japan
The sturdiness offered some challenge in unwrapping as I am the paper saving kind of person But once done, I found a copy of TOUR!!!!! This game has been on top of my wishlist since I found out about its existence (in 2007 I guess).
And now, in my first Secret Santa exchange, I get this delivered. And added to that I have to say that this game is not being published! So my Secret Santa contacted the game designer (
Luke Morris
England
Faversham
Kent

) and somehow got him to "craft" (as Santa called it in one of his mails) another copy of this game as my present.

I am absolutely in awe that this has happened! I am glad that the support drive had already made me realize I was not yet a supporter of this wonderful site, else I would have felt terribly ashamed that people gave this amount of effort

Although Luke specifically wrote me not to, I say thanks to him for putting together another copy of his game. I promise a session report will be written as soon as I have played the game!

But most of all thanks go to my Secret Santa You have given me a really wonderful gift and a big surprise. I was as happy as a child yesterday eve

Yay, a parcel arrived at my home today... I was working at that particular time and my niece (10 yrs old) and nephew (13 yrs old) kept it for me (Thanx!!!)...

They were so excited as we NEVER receive any parcel delivery at our home... When I've returned home, they were running to get that parcel for me and I knew it was from my secret santa...

No words can describe our excitement as the kids were jumping around cheering for me to open the parcel (they thought it is my birthday present as my birthday is around the corner)...

When i open my parcel, its a beautifully wrapped box... The kids tear it off and there it is:


Power Grid

Owh man... I've been dreaming to get this game for the past 3 years!!! I have even bought some casino chips to replace the money a year ago but couldn't get the game it self... And there it is...

We have the first game session on the spot with my niece n nephew and they straight away say "Ticket to Ride is not fun anymore"... Only after the game I realized that there are greetings card attached to the wrapper (Sorry Santa! I've got too excited... hehehe)

The kids love it, I love it, there is no better birthday present that I will get this year compared to your gift.

Thanx Secret Santa (you're the best!)

A delivery arrived today with a Santa sticker on the front.
Hurray!! My Secret Santa gift has arrived:


I opened up the outer box and first thing under the nuts was..
a bonus gift from Shire Games!
Attached to the game there was also:
a handy dice - thanks Nick & Sue

Digging deeper into the nuts I found not one but two packages:


As soon as my wife saw them, they were whipped out of my hands
and put under the tree 'You haven't got long to wait - so wait' she said.

Ah well - I'll update this again when I find out what they are.

Meanwhile a big thankyou to my Secret Santa

Xmas Day Update: I opened the lighter of the two boxes this morning to find:

I've been looking to get this since playing it on BSW so thats just perfect!
The 2nd heavier box is another I've been after adding to my collection in the shape of:


Two great gifts, so another big thankyou to my Secret Santa.
Two very welcome additions to my collection

Got in work today and another package had been held for me.. or I thought it was for me until I opened it and it turned out to be some delicious fudge for my wife!

She says it's very tasty and to thankyou very much for thinking about her

I was so happy to know that my SS existed with a "Hello" geekmail. Then the waiting. I finally got it this past Saturday. I wanted to put the box under the tree but it doesn't help that I have a 3 year old daughter yelling "open it! Open it!" joined in by my mom also yelling "do it! open it now! be fun!" I was already excited when I saw that the box come from Japan. To my surprise I got Kuni Tori!(Kuni Tori!) card game! I am very exited to play this being a fan of anime art style. How did my SS know?! (I had a few Japanese games on my list hehehe) And very shocked that my SS got this for me. My daughter was also thrilled upon seeing the writing on the box: "OOh, is this Chinese or Japanese? Can I play it?" hahaha

Thank you Secret Santa, you are very generous! This xmas has been one of the best so far and it's not even December 25th yet.



I also got some Japanese candy that I share with my daughter. We love it so very much! Yummy.

So, I did consider waiting until Christmas to open my gift. I thought I'd give it to family members to wrap it for me and put it under the tree. Then I thought, I've had a lousy day and this will cheer me up. So I opened it, and it did! Expecting to find one present, I found two. Yay!

Dominion: Alchemy



Dominion: Alchemy rounds out my Dominion set, which is now complete (well, except for "Stash").

And while having this unopened under the tree would have improved Christmas, this way I will hopefully get to play Macao with my friends this weekend.

Thank you Secret Santa, and thank you D. Dubendorfer of COSSGT for the high niceness index assessment and for your informative communiques!

My Secret Santa forewarned that his Elves were busy preparing something for me and so I waited excitedly for something to arrive in the post.

On that day I opened the big, brown, padded envelope to reveal not one, but two tastefully wrapped parcels. The first was Thurn and Taxis which has already had one play and gets the "thumbs up".

The second parcel contained: Fzzzt!. I'm looking forward to giving this one a go too.

Many thanks to my Secret Santa (and also a mention to Shire Games who included a handy 'Decision Dice' with the parcel) and Merry Christmas to one and all at Board Game Geek!

Our family has been using on-line stores for all our holiday shopping for the past few years. So a string of boxes arriving is not uncommon. I have learned to leave the box opening to the lead elf, so I do not see MY gifts. So I was suprised when I was handed a box with my name on the shipping label. It HAD to be from Secret Santa, so I didn't tear into it immediately. I resisted opening it for several days, whistle whistle but Monday was such a total bummer, I KNEEW my day could be brightened with a simple task. Remove a couple of strips of tape and peak inside. I was wondering if the goddies inside would be holiday wrapped, causing another quandry. YES, I was rewarded with a shiny new The Adventurers. SWEET!!!

Thank you very much Secret Santa! laugh

After several teaser mails Santa's elves dropped a package at my home.
I couldn't resist and opened it up right away. And what do I find in the box:



Great ! I had this on my wishlist but took it off when I missed the kickstart. But nothing escapes the all seeing eye of Secret Santa goo

But it gets better, included was Alien Frontiers: The Space Crane.

And to top it off, the lid, rulebook and 2 extra cards (on top of the 2 bonuscards) were signed by the game designer and the publishers:



Thank you so much Secret Santa. This game will hit our tables soon
(and if the people from my local gaming club are really nice, they can play with it as well... under my supervision ninja).

EDIT 2010-12-15: Just received some more pictures from my (not so) secret santa (thanks Fred !):

Thank you santa! Sorry I wasn't able to post a picture (I did have some fun putting the cats IN the box of packing peanuts. Did you know in cold dry weather, peanuts stick to cats? Heh)

Should get the first game of Shogun in after work today (at the FFG Event Center, if anyone reading this sees this in time, we still have room for one, maybe 2 more players!) (6:45pmish)

I've only played this before at friend's houses, but was pretty pleased I could read through the whole rules during lunch!

Perry Rhodan looks like a 'Lunch' length game, will try either later this week or after work.

Well, this has been my first Secret Santa here on BGG, and I'm really glad I joined in. Not only did I have a great target, but my Secret Santa was awesome.

First, there was the taunting. Lots of taunting. And riddles, in video form, hints at the games on their way and at Santa's identity. In the end, I almost guessed who it was correctly - my short list of 4 included him, although my guess was wrong - but I had a hoot, putting together clues hinting at who he was, sorting through (literally) scores of user profiles and game lists to thin down likely candidates.

And even better, he sent me two of the most highly ranked games on my wishlist... firstly, there was Ghost Stories, a co-op game that really appeals to both my playstyle and my taste in kung fu movies. Secondly, there's another game still wrapped under my tree, that looks very much like...



It's not even Dec 25th, and I already can't wait until next year, so I can join in the Secret Santa again!

My SANTA is AMAZING!!! Look what I got!!! Can't wait to open the boxes but I have children and must give the example... have to wait for Christmas Eve! But only if I can keep my sanity.







UPDATE:






Isn't my Santa just AMAZING?!

PS: I confess that I probably ate the chocolates before Christmas - my daughter pressured my too much! blush

Thank you Santa! My SS went above and beyond, and got me this most excellent game that I've been hesitant to pull the trigger on for the past year! Also, approximately 3 days after SS started, he sent me a bonus package with Arkham Horror: The King in Yellow Expansion and some special Arkham Horror Dice! Thank you SS, you are the best!

My Santa is not only awesome and generous, but also has perfect timing! Just today, my family was heading out to shop for me and asked about what games I might like. I replied, "Well, you might want to wait on that, because I don't know what my BGG Secret Santa is getting for me."

This afternoon, the doorbell rings. A package! From Thoughthammer! It takes me a moment to recall that I haven't ordered anything from Thoughthammer recently, and then it hits: It's from Santa!

The packages are beautifully giftwrapped, and, ordinarily, I'd tear right into them, but the packing slip helps me to claim undeserved virtue by clueing me in to the contents -- not only is there Claustrophobia (which I played at BGG.CON and love) but also the Power Grid: Brazil/Spain & Portugal expansion map. I've been jonesing for that for years now -- truly, this was the perfect present, and super-generous to boot.

Wow, Santa! You are some sweet sugar daddy (or momma)!

Thank you soooooo much!

kiss

A box was dropped off by one of Santa's helpers at Fedex today.
I knew a package was on the way since Santa had sent me the tracking number. He said Mrs. Claus made him; thanks Mrs. Claus.

My wife was already home so I made her open the box and tell me if what was inside was wrapped or not. They were.
So now I have TWO packages tempting me under the tree! I don't know if I will be able to resist opening them before we leave to visit family.


Thanks Santa.

EDIT

Sorry Santa I couldn't wait. It's my wife's doing really. She asked what sense it made to have presents and not open them. I couldn't think of a good retort so I opened them.

7 Wonders


Sweet. With all the high praise this has been getting I've been itching to play it myself. And I'm glad I went ahead and opened it since now I can try to teach it to my family before Christmas.

But that's not all I also received

Mosaix


I have been wanting to try this game since I heard about it last year, and now thanks to Santa I finally can. We've actually already given this one a play and both thought it was fun.

Thank you so much Santa. I hope you have a great Secret Santa showering you with great games too.
