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 received this a couple of weeks ago, but wasn't sure which Secret Santa it was from (I seem to be in a few this year )

I finally worked it out, based on other packages - so, sorry Santa for the delay in acknowledgement, but this was greatly appreciated!

A very happy Gamer.

No only did my wonderful Santa get me a brand new copy of Eminent Domain, he or she went an extra few miles!

Also included in the big box that awaited my return home this evening was a copy of Through the Ages and Mr. Jack! Rather than killing a couple dozen trees to make new copies, Santa 'thought green' and acquired used copies that are in such good condition, the only reason I know they're used is they were out of shrink and sorted! Santa also checked with me beforehand and I'll repeat here what I said to Santa - as long as they're in good condition, who cares, they still play the same!

Thank you Santa!!

Santa Santa Santa,
When my dad came to visit me at my apartment today he brought along a package for me. Funagain Games.

I couldn't wait until Christmas, I was too excited...
so I opened it to reveal not only Dominion: Cornucopia. But, Ticket to Ride!

I've been playing this on Xbox for some time now, and have really been wanted to play the real thing.
What an amazing first year of Secret Santa. You've made it great, thank you so very much Santa! Merry Christmas! (and if you're ever in my area, stop by and play some games!)

Santa told me to look for a package on Thursday, and after having a pretty rough week, I was looking forward to finding out if being a "good" boy really matters. Well, I got home to find a rather large box outside my door. Upon opening the box, I found two beautifully wrapped presents. Had the wife been home, I'm fairly certain the gifts would have be placed under the tree and I would have been forbidden to open them until the 26th.

But then I realized that, uh, in my haste to open the package, I had, umm, actually torn the wrapping paper on both presents, and so I, err, had to unwrap them to make sure I didn't damage anything.

And so it turns out that Santa sent me the following:

51st State has been high on the wish list and it should be a hit with the gang. I love card games and with the really cool, I can't wait play it.

Fürstenfeld has been another game I've been wanting to play. We love Friedemann and with the relatively quick playing time, this should be a great opener/closer to our game nights.

Thank you Secret Santa!!!!

Batt'l Khaos!! A good 2 player from what I have read. I really appreciate the effort my Secret Santa put in this year. Batt'l Khaos wasn't on my Wishlist, but I guess he or she checked out my profile, saw what knid of games I enjoy (I love lighter 2 player games that my GF will play) and made the call to send this. Good work Secret Santa, milk and cookies for you!!!!

After a long day at work I came home today exhausted. After changing out of my uniform my wife came in asking if I was expecting any packages. I said that I was indeed and she directed my attention to the kitchen table where an open box sat. (No one has admitted to opening it yet)

I tripped over 3 dogs in my mad dash across the living room.

Thank you Santa, I have been eyeing this for some time.

14 Dec 2011: I got home late last night to find another opened box on the kitchen table (still no idea who is opening my packages but I have my suspicions and I'm sure they will be getting nothing but COAL this year for Christmas). Inside was a copy of Ghost Stories, just when I thought my santa was done he surprised me with a second present. Thank you SO MUCH Santa.

Woo hoo! It's Secret Santa Day! I got home tonight to find a box from FunAgain on my front stoop! Opening it up, I found not 1, but 2 games! Discworld: Ankh-Morpork was a game I got to play at BGG.con thus year and immediately put it on my wishlist.

The 2nd game was Caylus.


I've never played this one, but have had it recommended to me on multiple occasions.

The timing was great on both of these - some friends just moved up here recently, and we're heading over to their house this weekend for gaming!!

Thank you very, very much for the generous gift, Santa! I can't wait to play theses games!

I received a box of fun today from Boards and Bits. I hadn't ordered anything recently, so I knew it had to be my Secret Santa package! I just now had a chance to open it up. I was going to wait until Christmas to open the gifts if the presents were wrapped, but if not...

So, with the family tucked into bed, I pull out the box of fun...



At first I saw a hint of red and thought the present may be wrapped, but after shifting a few packing peanuts around, I find:

Carcassonne: Traders and Builders!


Awesome! A highly wanted expansion to one of my (and my daughter's) favorite games. But another box was next to it...

For Sale


A game from the top of my wishlist. Perfect for family and friends who aren't hardcore gamers.

But there was something else underneath them both...but it can't be..can it?

Carson City!


I've wanted this game since the very moment I heard about it. Worker placement, tile laying, themey goodness.

Thank you, Secret Santa! You exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to play these!

Well...I got home from a boring day at work, and on my door was a note stating that I had a delivery. I had to think if I had ordered anything recently and realized that I hadn't.

Looking at the front of the box, there was a sticker from CLS Games with a message stating that it was a game from my BGG Secret Santa. I thought, "Aha! This must be from my WARGAME Secret Santa since my "regular" SS had already spoiled me tremendously.

Upon opening the package, I was greeted with the following game, creeping out from behind the Styrofoam peanuts:



wow A game that was on the top of my wishlist, but that I ultimately didn't buy when I had the chance when it was in stock at my FLGS.

Needless to say, I am now a VERY HAPPY owner of a game that I have wanted ever since it was released.

I would like to thank my WARGAME Secret Santa for making a fantastic choice from my wishlist, and for making this Christmas even better. I can honestly say that I had the BEST Secret Santa's and wish them a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I got a few messages from the Secret Santa, so I knew it was coming soon. When it did arrive, it was on a day when I ended up working VERY late on holiday products and such for work. I got home around 11pm and was delighted to see the box.

A nice cube of a box.

"Quarriors!" I said to myself, and I ravaged it open.



Huh. 4 little boxes. Guess I was wrong. I have no idea what any of these things are!

Well, I've been working late a lot so far this holiday season, I deserve a little early celebration. Let's open them and see what I get!

What the...?! That IS Quarriors! A lot smaller than I remember, I guess, since I've played it several times at game nights before. I've been really wanting to own it for myself. Hooray! Thanks Santa!

And what's this little white envelope? Quarriors! Quaxos Promo Cards! Excellent! Well done again!

There's a note here about Mrs. Claus including something about a great game for family nights. What can it be? Ah! The Taboo-esc Speak It Not. I think this will be a challenge and a hit with the kids.

Still two to go? My family must have put in a good word for me, I haven't been that good.

Hey! God Dice! I've had this on my wishlist since I played it at SaltCon a couple years ago. Great choice!

And Chaos? I'm not familiar with this one, but it looks interesting.



Very well done Secret Santa! Thanks a Ton!

(and sorry I couldn't wait to dig in.)

Thank you, Santa! Over the top. Can't wait to get these to the table!

Ho ho ho!

I've wanted this for ages ever since I played half a game while stuck inside a snowed in cabin at Black Butte Ranch in Oregon (go Beavs!). The only reason we played half a game was that someone managed to dig us out and we were sick of being indoors, so the game was abandoned.

Fast forward three years and I've still never managed to pickup a copy - until now. Thanks, Santa!

And as if that wasn't great enough, an extra gift buried inside the foam packing!



Santa, one gift was more than enough. Two is humbling. I got nothing but love for you! Thankyou thankyou thankyou

I posted earlier when I got the "Walled Village" Dominion promo in the mail. (see # 27, page two of this list). My secret santa really went overboard this year. I can see him (or her) sitting at the computer looking at my wishlist and thinking "Oh this is small, I'll add it. What the heck, I'll add this and that and this and that..."

Upon opening the box not only did I find Dixit, I also found Ablaze!, JAB: Realtime Boxing, Hive: The Ladybug, and both Chrononauts: Lost Identities, and Chrononauts: The Gore Years.

I literally stared, mouth agape, looking at my box of goodies for five minutes. At a loss for words and also for where to begin. Thank you so much Santa. My family and I really appreciate it!

Thanks so much Santa! Your elves made the delivery just fine, and what a generous delivery it turned out to be!

The Dust Tactics Revised Core Set, and some filthy undead Nazi shock troops:
