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 my package in the mail a few weeks ago but waited until yesterday to open them like a good boy (which I am far from being). I was very happy to see the two games I received. I got Conquest of the Empire and the Shadows of War expansion for the World of Warcraft board game. Thanks a lot to my Secret Santa for making Christmas a little more special for me. And here's hoping everybody had a great Christmas.

Thank you Secret Santa!!! Not only did I get Ingenious, but also Pandemic. They may not be the latest and greatest games on the boards, but they're games that me and my 9 year old gaming buddy can play! And he loves Pandemic! We've already saved the world once (and alas, killed everyone more than once). He also loves abstacts and Ingenious is right in his wheelhouse.

Thank you Secret Santa! You made a couple gamers very, VERY happy this Christmas!!!

Well, I was finally able to open the Christmas present sent by a generous East-Coaster (US). And inside was a couple of PnPs that I have wanted for a while and a fun-looking dice game.

One of the PnP games was Chunky Fighters. This looks to be a good time with some great cube people. The other was Vampires' Dance. The artwork on the cards is fantastic! I can't wait to go over the rules and try this one out.





The final game was Diceland. I'm a big fan of dice games and this looks to be a nice light challenge for me and my wife to play.



Thanks to my Secret Santa for the generous bounty! And happy holidays to all of my Geek-mates!

There's been a package taunting me under the Christmas tree for over a week. Two wrapped packages and a stocking stuffed with goodies.

Yesterday I finally got to open it! What a nice surprise. Here's what was in it...

So...Let's take inventory. In addition to Cuba, there was the Cuba: El Presidente expansion.

The stocking was stuffed with two smaller games:
6 nimmt!
which is a great filler for from 3 to 10, and Coloretto

Finally, there was a lot of other useful things including a package of meeples, a deck of playing cards, some 6-sided dice, some glass stones, a packet of blank cards (I'll call this the 1000 Blank White Cards starter kit) and some Flamingo meeples (which I personally had never heard of but no gamer should be without).


So a great big Thank You! to my Secret Santa.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my fellow BGG-ers.

A big thanks and wow to my extremely generous secret santa. Nick the ever reliable elf from shire games informed me about a monmth ago that I'd made it onto the nice list this year but I wasn't able to pick up my gift until last Monday. Not 1, not 2, but 3 games wrapped up waiting for me! I couldn't believe it.

I even managed to resist temptation until the big day. parcel number 1 was betrayal at the house on the hill. been after this for years and the handy reprint means it;s now mine (and the insane generousity of my secret santa)

I would have been chuffed with just that but the 2nd parcel had:

Thunderstone: Wrath of the Elements

Wow really enjoy this game so this expansion will make it even better.

The last game was:

Fagin's Gang

a nice little game thaqt I've heard great things about.

Finally there was even a decision die to help determine start player!

What a haul - I can't believe it - thanks secret santa you're brilliant!

(and thanks Nick for the great wrapping)

Santa arrived a bit early and his presents had been mocking me for quite some time under the tree. FINALLY (nothing like channeling that inner 6-year old), come Christmas morning, I was able to open them. Once again, Santa took real good care of me this year.

Nothing like celebrating Christmas by knocking off that smug little Doctor Lucky. Santa's gift version came with his annoying little dog too!

But that was just the beginning. Santa prepared me for a bleak future by also getting me a game at the top of my wishlist:
Neuroshima Hex!


And finally Santa added to my Fluxx collection by getting me another game high on my wishlist:
Martian Fluxx


I've got the rest of the year off from work so plan on spending much of my time in taking over the wasted earth, killing off that no-good Doctor Lucky & his dog, and taking control of the earth from those pesky humans!

Thank you Santa!!!!!

I received this a loooong time ago (at least 2 weeks) but failed to post about it. It was wrapped and I didn't know exactly what it was, but based on this being the only game on my wishlist with a high score of wanting and the box size and weight I assumed it was this game.

I got home from Christmas with the family today and just opened it and it was indeed this game which I shall play very soon!

Thanks Santa!

This is what my Secret Santa got me. It was a very generous gift and I have other flicking games, but I think this one is going to be my favorite. It was a hit with the in-laws as well which says a lot considering they don't venture out past the Monopolies and other standard department store games.

My wife is next to her brother and I am holding my daughter. We had a blast and I am glad that there is one more game that I can play with my wife.


Thanks again Santa!

My Secret Santa wasn't just Secret; he was also Swift, Super, and Splendid! (Would have been better for the alliteration if he was also Swedish, but I suspect he was actually Norwegian.)

Said Santa sent not one, not two, but THREE separate packages containing four different games! In addition to the World Cup Card Game (one I've been seeking for a while but unable to find), I also got Stone Age (a great lighter Euro), Nuns on the Run (already a local favorite), and Genji (not only a beautiful and well-themed game, but also surprisingly tactical).

While the packages arrived over the course of the past few weeks, I was instructed to keep them wrapped until Boxing Day. The only one we actually played today was the World Cup game, and while I got Argentina into the final four, I couldn't pull out the victory. No sadness, though; I managed to win everything else I played today - a rare occurrence for me - and combining that with the joy of opening four much-desired games made for a great day after Christmas.

Secret Santa, you are a prince among men and/or elves - many thanks for your great generosity! Glædelig Jul og godt nytt år!

As usually I was totally unprepared to meet my Santa`s gifts. I have received a huge package and was shocked. Firstly I have difficult thoughts about, is it really my present? Have I been so obedient this year? But later I understand that happy emotions I have received with gifts have to compensate some bad thing and feeling staying with us in these Christmas and New Years days. Secret SANTA, thank you for your gifts and happiness you bring into my life.
So I received Tannhauser and

Dixit

Thank you very much.

I think Santa got bogged down in the snow, but he got off the ground.

I was worried for a while actually, no comments, no taunting, just steady suspense building...
Until Dec19th! a mere week ago, Santa (who is wise in the way of technology!) sent me a message, letting me know my suspenseful month had come to an end, and I may be receiving a special package soon.

Thursday the 23rd comes, and the friendly neighbourhood postal worker (Santa, who is wise in the way of delegating!) leaves me a note on my door saying I will have a package to pick up the next day,

What they failed to mention that the next day, being the 24th of December, they will close early, and if poor Pete wants to walk 30 minutes to the post office to pick up his long awaited Christmas gift, he is SoL if he has to work until 5.

phone ahead to find out what time they are open you say?
Yes, did that, Their phone is out of order (they kindly told me they are getting new notes with the updated information printed out soon, you know, after the busiest mail holiday of the year...)

So Pete must trudge back, and await the day of unBoxing for Boxing day.

But in the end,
'Twas worth it,

Santa... Until next year...
Ave Caeser *tosses coin*

Woop woop! I was so happy when I opened my gift from Secret Santa this year and found not one but two gifts! A large wrapped box and a smaller one. I was quick to guess what the bigger one was (not all gifts on my gift list had a box with that size):

POWER GRID


Of all the games I play on my regular board game nights Power Grid was the only one I didn't own but wanted oh-so-much! Somehow my Secret Santa figured it out and gave me Power Grid. I would have been happy with only Power Grid but Santa sent me another package and I couldn't really guess what it was.

None of the games on my wish list had that box size so I opened the box and to my big surprise my Secret Santa had figured out I wanted a game I myself hadn't even thought of (but when I saw it I realized I had wanted this game badly!). Secret Santa sent me

PANDEMIC: ON THE BRINK


Yay! Best Christmas ever! I look forward to playing with my, not one but two, new games (I've already played three games of Power Grid and I need to find more people who want to play Pandemic: On the Brink).

I've already planned a board game night on new year's eve. Both of my new games from my Secret Santa will be played!

Happy Holidays!

Thanks to my secret Santa..

I got Back to the Future: The Card Game

as well as Race for the Galaxy: Rebel vs Imperium



and since they went with Star Lit Citadel, there was a third game thrown in by the website, which surprised me. I assumed the "free gift" was chocolates or something.

I also got

Genji




Which I have to admit, would not be a game I'd even look at in the store. However having glanced at the rules, it does have an interesting premise. I'll deffinately have to play a couple times and see how it goes.

Thank you very much Secret Santa!!!!

My Secret Santa left me explicit instructions not to open my gift until Christmas, so I've been unable to properly thank them until I got back home from visiting my mother. My box from The War Store contained DT2: Prison, along with Ingenious Challenges!

Thank you ever so much! The very perfect gift, in my estimation, is something you want but would never buy for yourself--and both of these games fit the bill exactly. I am very grateful to my benevolent Secret Santa.

Thank you so much, Secret Santa!


Betrayal at House on the Hill is awesome. We've played it at least 5 times since opening it Christmas morning. The whole family loves it.


Also, my Secret Santa included a bonus game: Bohnanza! Friends and I tried this out yesterday, but we only got one play in and it was just a 3-player game. I get the impression this will be better with 6 or so. I'm looking forward to finding out!

Thanks again, Santa. You're the best!
