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.

Got my Secret Santa gift today, the first day of post after Christmas. I got Glory to Rome which I have wanted for years and The Awful Green Things from Outer Space. I haven't heard much about the second game so I am off to do some reading now!

Thanks Santa!

I was little worried if I had been naughty when I didn't receive my gift from Santa before christmas. Fortunately I got my present now. Very happy with the game Santa chose for me. It was nicely wrapped.



When I opened I found Shipyard or actually Die Werft.



Now that I printed out the rules in english and read them through I'm very anxious to test this puppy out.

Thank you Santa!

Wow!

Joined Secret Santa with pretty low expectations really. I had read a few stories here on BGG about some naughty Santa's not delivering their items.

Well I had a fabulous package delivered from Shire Games here in the UK and it contained Le Havre. I was gob smacked by the generosity.

My wife loves Agricola
She also loves Harbour Master on the iphone

Her comment was it is a Harbour Master Agricola - not entirely accurate but at least it will get a few plays with her.

What a great website!
What a great community!
I do not think I have known anything like it

I was feeling kinda blue because my Daddy had been diagnosed with colon cancer. My Secret Santa got me fixed up here, and I was a good girl and waited until Christmas to open my gift.

Whooo Hooo! I was sure glad I waited, because I had an AWESOME Christmas! My Daddy's catscan came back and it looks like surgery will remove all the malignant tumor so He won't have to undergo chemotherapy. He's 76 and not in such great health anymore. I opened my Secret Santa gift at my Daddy's house and we played my new games until 1 a.m.!

Thanks for the games and the good times, Santa!

Santa sent me some teasing early on, and wrote just before Christmas to inform me that there were some hiccups due to delivery delays! Alas, I received a package from Thought Hammer just after Christmas.

In the container was, well, Container

Container was joined by its smaller friend, Container: The Second Shipment.

Reiner Knizia's Battle Line rounded out the box to make a generous shipment of presents.

But wait, there's more! On the manifest from Thought Hammer is a still as-of-yet unshipped Warriors of God!

Here are the spoils of the season thus far, posing in front of the Martin Wallace shelf:



Thank you very much, Santa, you were good to me this year.

Santa is pretty busy around the holidays, and of course sometimes real life gets in the way. Mrs. Claus always has him fixing things up around the house, washing the dogs, cleaning the cats, taking the children to the vet, that kind of thing. So sometimes Santa can't get stuff to us kids right on Christmas day - and that's okay! If you're patient, you'll eventually get something nice... and this year I was patient!

Secret Santa sent me Fresco, a game that I'm excited to try as for some reason I always seem to miss out on playings of it - so I guess I just need my own copy. As a little bonus, s/he also sent me that favorite traditional holiday game -


So we'll sit around the tree, drinking our egg nog, playing our Zombie Fluxx. You know, the normal things.

I also got a nice little painted mini of a Genestealer - which looks much better than the job I've been able to do myself. I'm sure everyone who plays Space Hulk with me will know that the one well-painted mini isn't original to my set... but maybe I can fool them.

Secret Santa sent along a little message with a code for me to break if I'd like to find out who s/he is. Haven't done it yet, but you know I won't be able to resist...

Thanks Secret Santa! I really enjoyed the gifts!

Santa was awesome again this year and included gifts for the whole family, including a toy for our 1-month old! On Monday we received a package from Newfoundland (I'm guessing that's the closest post office to the North Pole). Not only did he make opening the games more fun by wrapping everything and labelling gifts with gingerbread men, he also included some local confectionaries and a book about Canada.

My daughter was thrilled to open Reiner Knizia's SWAT! and adores the candy (she loves trying to talk my wife or me into giving her another piece), and my 2 year old son loved the box for Hula Hippos (he still thinks the boxes are as cool as the games themselves). Of course, my son also really wanted to tear into the Stack'nSurprise Blocks Santa thoughtfully sent for my new little girl.

My wife was excited that Santa gave the family a copy of 1313 Dead End Drive - straight from his very own shelves - wow! She was also delighted to receive a set of lavender shower gels, lotions, and bath salts.

I was elated to receive both Reef Encounter and Reef Encounter of the Second Kind and am looking forward to an opportunity to bring these out with my game group. I really enjoy Z-Man games in general and have been looking forward to Reef Encounter.

Santa really went above and beyond thinking of everyone in this gamers household this year. Thank you so much, Santa, for an awesome BGG Christmas!

1221. Board Game: Claustrophobia [Average Rating:7.68 Overall Rank:99]

mbmbmbmbmb
Yesterday I came home...and saw there was a huge box on the table. It looked like the box my parents got for christmas, so I thought nothing of it. But after a while I realized the box was actually still closed! I ran back to the kitchen...and saw it was for me!

It was a huuuuuge box too, so my adrenaline started to rush!

After hastingly trying to get the sticky tape off the box...I saw three wrapped presents inside. Two very big boxes and a small soft package.

First I opened the small one. There was a bag with black miniatures in there. My santa had sent me a GM before saying I would receive a very exclusive expansion to a game...only available on Spellenspektakel 2008. But even after doing some research I had no idea what it could be.

Now I had a bag of miniatures...and still no idea what game it belonged to! =)

Quickly I opened one of the big boxes. Once the wrappingpaper was gone, I saw the awesomeness that is Claustrophobia! But...that game wasn't out in 2008...so the expansion can't belong to that.

Instead of checking Claustrophobia's components first, I unwrapped the second present.

And there was the solution. Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery
I played this game a long long time ago, and thought it was really really great, but somehow never bought it. And now I had it in my hands, including the exclusive 6th player expansion.

I immediately called one of my friends to come over and play. I quickly read the Claustrophobia rules and we started playing. Unfortunately the game wasn't entirely complete, but using images on BGG we were able to solve every question we had. Now I just need to mail to customer service to send some cards =)

We played the games two times, and both were great! I loved playing as both the demons and invaders, and am looking forward to many many more times!

Needless to say, I cannot thank my santa enough! Hope his/her santa was as great as mine!

A belated merry christmas to everyone, and Santa...thanks again for the great (nice wrapped!) gifts!

Would really like to study U.S. History at some point, just to be able to say that I'm a Coolidge student...

Well, my dear fello Geeks, I must admit; I was worried. I had heard nothing from my Secret Santa, nor seen any package, and honestly thought I might have gotten the Grinch for my Secret Santa. That is, until I arrived home from visiting a friend today. In my mailbox was a pickup note, and I promptly went to the post office to claim my package.

Inside were two gift-wrapped packages. I brought them home, and opened them, barely allowing enough time to snap a photo of them, in wrapping. Inside the smallest package, I found Genji, of which I have never heard, but which I am looking forward to trying.

Inside the largest one I found two things; Small World, and Small World: Necromancer Island.

I think I've been very lucky with my Secret Santam who seems to be this fella:

Photos to come, not to worry.

Addendum: My fiancée looks like she approves of my haul; so thanks from her, too!

Edit 1: Wow! Entry number 1234 on the list! How cool is that?

Here are the photos:

Still in wrapping, waiting in trepidation...


Unwrapped, punched, bagged, and put into the boxes.

This year, Santa saw fit to check on me now and again and make sure I wasn't being naughty! I got called naughty at least 10 times!!!!

First he thought I was naughty because I asked for games I already owned, but this was sadly due to a case of lost-games syndrome on my part. Then I was naughty for not opening and posting what I got, but this was also explainable, as I was out of town until just last night, so he let me keep them after all.

It was all worth it in the end though as I ended up with a shiny new Cosmic Encounter along with the Cosmic Encounter: Cosmic Incursion to boot! Since I was so naughty, Santa also included a set of pinup girl temporary tattoo's that I will happily sport to ring in the new year!
