Just added a new Secret Santa Poll . Head over to [geekurl=http://boardgamegeek.com/article/7924278#7924278]Week 2 Secret Santa Poll[/geekurl] to see how everyone is faring thus far in this year's event. And of course, add your votes!

ALRIGHT! It is time once again for the annual Secret Santa List, this time the 2011 Edition. For those of you who are new to the 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. No placeholder entries, please.

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.

Last year there were 1,437 unique entries spread over 58 pages. I'm curious to see how huge it grows this year. As a tip - if you go looking through the previous years' lists, please be mindful of which year you are actually posting your gift to. There have been multiple occasions of people posting a gift from the current year on the previous year's list. That would likely diminish the chances of your Secret Santa getting around to seeing it...

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:

"2010 List"

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"

does a superb job using the data from this list to create his great statistical look at the hottest gifts of the season. This year's version of his list is located at:

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2011


Last year: Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2010

Want some for your stocking? Simon also runs a Secret Santa Sweepstakes which is located at:

This year: 2011 Secret Santa Sweepstakes

Last year: 2010 Secret Santa Sweepstakes


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.


If you would like to taunt your "target" while maintaining your secret identity, you can do so using the Santa logon. Just log yourself off and close any BGG windows (if you don't you take the chance of being discovered if the new username doesn't take) and log on using this info:

Username: santa
Password: password



I hope you have a terrific holiday season and enjoy the list!

I was expecting three packages to arrive from different places, and I got three packages. One of them wasn't what I was expecting though - It was 7 Wonders, unwrapped, with a note to say that sleeves were coming separately.

So, unintentional unwrapping, but I don't mind It's now sitting under the tree.

EDIT: Another package arrived, this time wrapped, along with a couple of pieces of Christmas Candy too

Santa told me the elves would be dropping my gift off. Every day....nothing. I came back today from a long weekend hoping for my box, but nothing. As I was getting ready for bed, my landlord calls to let me know they have a big box for me!

It's my first BGG Secret Santa, what could it be?
Quarriors! My top pick! I recognize the shape of a giant d6 when I see one!

I remove it and notice something else buried a little deeper..what is this now?

Quarriors! Rise of the Demons

The expansion! I'm all set! I reach around in the box to make sure there is nothing left, and I feel cardboard. Thinking it emptied I pick it up. But it seems a bit heavy...

Race for the Galaxy

ANOTHER game! Santa rocks! I can't wait to play them!

Well, a package has arrived from the (seemingly) ever generous Paul Lister. I do not have an order outstanding from them, so I assume this is the work of my Secret Santa. As in previous years, I will not be opening this until the 25th, so I will update this when I know what it is.

Many thanks.

OK, an update. I checked back through this thread and found others whose Santas had used Paul, to check that they were wrapped. Which they were. So I opened the box to find two ( ) wrapped games and a card confirming that this was from my Santa. One game is heavy and of an unusual shape for a game (so I suspect I know what it is), and the other is card game sized.

---

Well it turns out that, as I suspected, the heavy box was The Climbers. I hope this will go down well with the family, as the nice 3D aspect of it will hide the fact that it is 'just' an abstract.

The card game sized one was, indeed, a card game. In this case, Archaeology: The Card Game

. This was not on my list, but I have enjoyed Dungeon Raiders from Phil Harding, so I have high hopes.

Thanks, Santa.

After the mailman had visited us today, the doorbell rang. Turns out it was another mailman, bringing a delivery of games.

The box was from Milan Spiele, so I knew what this was about... Secret Santa! I haven't ordered from Milan in a long time.

I gave the box to my wife and kids so they could open it and check out what's inside. Turns out whatever is there is not giftwrapped, so they resealed the box and now it'll have to wait until 24th.

Well, that's better than waiting until January like I had to last year. So far my Santa has been very quiet, so I don't have a clue what's waiting for me...

Update 25/12/2011: Santa brought me Clippers and Stich-Meister. I'm most satisfied. I was really hoping to get either Clippers or Container, and now I've got Clippers. Yay! Getting a second game was a nice bonus. So, thanks a lot to my Secret Santa!

I have NO IDEA whether this is allowed or proper code of conduct, but -

just to record that my parcel just arrived a few minutes ago (I think it is regular SS, not PNP one, shaking the box gently sounded like plastic pieces... ). And it said on it NO PEEKING, so I am going to keep it until the 25th. Shame on you who have already opened theirs! arrrh

Anyway, thank you, Santa, for giving me some Christmassy feeling, because this autumn hasn't given me a lot of it. We have been ill for the past few days at home and my husband has been in the hospital for over a week with a suspected stroke. I miss him. So, we haven't really been in the mood for putting any decorations up, even though we are now almost halfway through the advent. At least there is one thing now to look forward to!

Anyway, enough of my problems, have a great holiday, y'all and give lots of love to your families. kiss

tuskel,
sincerely

CHRISTMAS EDIT:

Out of my HUGE parcel came not one, not two, but three games:
Ingenious
Hey, That's My Fish
and Coloretto

Thank you, Santa, I am very excited! I have wanted Ingenious since last Xmas and finally I have it! Also, the other games should be very good with my in-laws when we go to visit them (hopefully sometimes next week). I really want to try Coloretto before that though.

For those who are interested, hubby is back home, even though he does still feel quite ill. But at least he is stable. So, all in all, I've had nice Christmas.

Take care and play lots of games!

tuskel,
sincerely


P.S. After playing all the games, I can say that Ingenious is truly a great game. I managed to have a solo game, play with hubby and also "play" with my 3y old daughter - with her it was more like hexagonal dominoes, just matching, you know. Out of the other two games, Coloretto is definitely my new favourite, although when I started reading the rules, I felt like my head would explode. However, it is actually very simple and clever. Hey, That's My Fish! was alright, but I had thought the game was much bigger (the little hexagons are very fiddly), and annoyingly, hubby won the game. Put me right off.

All in all - thumbsupthumbsupthumbsup

My secret santa sure did deliver this year! I found this waiting on my doorstep on Saturday morning and since santa said I could, I dove right in. The box had two very nicely wrapped presents that I tore open like it was Christmas day. I found the first one had a black t-shirt with a knight holding a banner that reads "Who Dat?" which is obviously from the greatest team in all of the NFL. Then I discovered the boardgame straight off my wishlist and that santa came up with a great theme to my gifts. BLACK AND GOLD...GO SAINTS!!! I wore my t-shirt as I watched the game on Sunday night and I will be playing Black Gold this weekend at a gameday. Thank you so much santa for all the work you put in to my gifts and thanks for getting it here quickly so I can put it all to good use! It really means a lot to have the personal touches you added.

Thanks Santa,
Mike

Dear Santa,
This afternoon I heard ringing the bells of the sled. Before I could see them, they were already gone and there was a great box before my feets. I could not wait to open it, and what I saw exceeded all my expectations. Thank you Santa, this year it will be a very, very nice Christmas. I hope you have a generous Santa too, and have a very Merry Christmas!

To keep everything chronologically correct, my gift arrived today! Santa told me that it wasn't wrapped in the box, but I have been informed I am waiting until Christmas to open it, so it will probably get wrapped and become the first gift under my tree! Thanks Santa!

Uh oh....looks like I couldn't wait, tape was loose, one thing led to another and its now opened! Either way, thanks to my great Secret Santa, who graciously included Blood Bowl: Team Manager, Thunderstone: Heart of Doom, and a $5 CoolStuffInc card! Thanks a ton Santa, and Merry Christmas!

Wooooo Hoooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Santa was super generous to me! Santa was pretty much the strong silent type. Just a quick geekmail to let me know the present was on the way (thank you so much for that santa!) and I got this wonderful gem here. This was my #1 wanted gift because I'm such a fangirl over gears of war and I was completely happy when it finally published.

THANK YOU SO MUCH SANTA!

I've been naughty because I didn't wait to open it but I have never been so glad on not waiting more than anytime in my life!

Happy Holidays!

Well, my Santa is officially wonderful. I had a parcel re-delivered last week that I suspected was my Secret Santa parcel, as I had more parcels than I was expecting and this one was actually from a game supplier, not from Amazon, That immediately gave me a crisis of conscience - should I open the parcel, or should I wait?

Luckily, my Santa was kind enough to say that I could open my package up. Lurking inside was not one well-wrapped present... but two! I carefully teased just enough of the wrapping of each up enough so that I could see what was inside... that way, I'd still have some present ideas to pass along to family looking to get me things for the holidays. My Santa not only sent me:

The Miskatonic Horror expansion for Arkham Horror, the expansion I've wanted most for a while now; from everything I've read this expansion makes all of the other expansions better, just like either chocolate or curry sauce can make any food item better.

But, with great generosity, my Santa also sent me one of the other Arkham expansions I'm missing:

The Black Goat of the Woods! I've been debating getting this one for a while, but wanted to wait until I had the Miskatonic Horror.

So, my Santa rocks I hope everyone joining in is this lucky!

I am far from home now, but I received a BIIIIG box from CSI, and once I believe that I did not ask anything in the last six months, I believe that it is SECRET SAMBA, I mean, SANTA shake

Unfortunately I will be far from home for the next 2 weeks, so I will be dead of curiosity until there ninja

====================================================================

Well, I bent the strings of line and space and went to home before I could just to see my wonderful package, and it worth it!

As fast as I could, I starred my huge box


I opened with a nica surprise, 2 cards: one for me and other for my gf


Two gifts! My ss told me about that - but not that they are heavy!



A-HA! The most wanted 2011 SS gift, and this was on the TOOOOP of my list!!! UAUUUUUUU


A-HA ^2 ! My gisrfriend was begging for No Retreat! The Russian Front ! She loved! and of course, I celebrated it too!


Everything "in one piece"



This is my greatest xmas ever, and I am really proud of my SS - They (Jenny and Chris) have been great - they only failed with out of stock "MLPH&S" that they promised also laughlaughlaugh!

I loved everything!!!

Thanks a lot, and again, Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!!!!

I was very glad to see that my recipient was very glad to get their games when I saw their post today. And when I got home, my package was waiting for me!



Wow, that's a big box! No note saying to wait... let's open her up!



It's Alea Iacta Est! I've been wanting to play this one for a while. But that can't be the only thing in a box this big...



Rattus: Pied Piper! I love the base game, and I'm looking forward to trying the new role cards out! Let's dig a little deeper into the pink peanuts...



Inca Empire is one that's been intriguing me and I think it's going to be a real keeper in my game group. Is there more?



Troyes! Neat! More great Alexandre Roche art!

Thanks a lot, Santa! I'm hesitant to use the word "haul", but the big guy up north was very generous to me. I must have been a VERY good boy this year.

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

I received a parcel today - rectangle, a similar size to my copy of Tigris & Euphrates

Brilliant!

this arrived 3 days ago so I knew something was up.

"Ho ho ho!

I've been checking up on whether you've been good this year and I'm happy to say there's now a parcel on its way to you. My nearest reindeer has been dispatched towards Christchurch... I have also done a bit of secret research via my local Elf contact and sent a small extra "treat" which should arrive separately. That one has further to travel so don't worry if it takes longer.

If you want to open them when they arrive, that's fine by Santa but maybe you'd prefer to set a good example for the kids by waiting until Christmas Day!"


thanks Santa!

A valuable second package arrived today- sizes of resealable bags I haven't seen on the shelves here for a while. I now know Santa was working out of the UK!
Thanks Santa- although I pity you reading my dribblings around BGG to find this discussion.


Merry Christmas!

WOW!! Got home from work today to see a trail of Elf glitterdust through my front yard leading to a rather large box on my doorstep. I was VERY excited and could not wait to get it open...so I did.
Inside was:

Fortune and Glory: The Cliffhanger Game

In my excitement I almost missed the padded envelope which included:

Summoner Wars: Jungle Elves Faction Deck

and

Summoner Wars: Goodwin's Blade Reinforcement Pack

And as a nice bonus - not even on my list, but proved that my Santa took the extra time to look at my gaming shelf - there was this:

Munchkin: Santa's Revenge

Thank you SOOOOO much Santa! I cannot wait to get all of these items to my gaming table. The generosity of the BBG community is nothing short of amazing. I am proud to be a part of it!

My Secret Santa is AWESOME!!! Not only has he done his homework (he knew I had been a very good girl), but he sent gifts not only for me, but also for my kids! First came a pack of Zoobles for my daughter, then came a package with not only Once Upon a Time and Once upon a Time-Dark Tales, but a theme deck of Pokemon cards for my son as well. Thank you so much Santa for making my family's Christmas wonderful!

UPDATE!!

It seems that I jumped the gun! My incredible Santa sent me ANOTHER package, and inside was Elder Sign! Thank you again Santa, and I promise that next year I will try to have a bit more patience!
