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!

Thank you very much Secret Santa!

I was out of town when I received a missive from my Secret Santa stating that I should be expecting something in a few days. Unfortunately, I was not going to be home for another two weeks. Thankfully my neighbors were collecting all the mail and when I got back home I found this from my Secret Santa.

I really appreciate you getting me this. Thank you very much and I hope the holidays were good for you, too!

Christmas came and went with nary a word, but I was reasonably confident Santa would come through. Four days later, I contracted food poisoning and was sick as a dog in bed. My wife came in with a grin and a big package. So Santa's gift lightened up a bad day.

I waited a couple hours until I was feeling a little better and then was happy to discover three nicely wrapped gifts from my revealed Santa. He lives in the same state as my target and I was confused momentarily when I saw the address.

Two of my kids helped me open the packages to find some interesting choices. Santa is trying to nudge me to expand my gaming horizons. The big one was Memoir '44 which I have been thinking about for years. I think it will be fun to try this one after I rustle up an opponent.

Then a little box from high on my wishlist...The Werewolves of Miller's Hollow.
This will definitely get play with family and scouts.

And finally, a game I had never heard of and wasn't something I'd normally investigate. The brief descriptions I have since read here on the Geek make it look kind of fun and different from anything I've tried.


Thanks Santa!

Just when I was starting to be worried whether Santa has forgotten about me or was abducted by ninja, Santa dropped me a message last week and told me that my present is on the way!


This afternoon I found a HUGE box in my house, and I was even more excited because it was HEAVY! Inside the box I found not one, but two boardgames!!

My Christmas present this year - Snow Tails and Dixit! Thank you so much Santa for sending both presents all the way from US to MalaysiaIt means a lot to me!

I only had time to pick up the package today, due to travelling away for the last few days, and what do I find inside? Battlestar Galactica! Thanks you very much, Secret Santa!

I've already started preparations for getting a few friends together to play this game :-)

Oh, and I notice there was something edible in the package as well, that will be interesting to taste

Cheers! And I wish you all a happy new year as well!

I had another silent Santa this year. I received Kingdom Builder, for which I'm very grateful. Unfortunately, I had already received this from my fiancee for my birthday, which is very close to Christmas.

Still, it's the thought that counts and I very much appreciate the effort from my Santa.

The good news is I already know I enjoy the game since I've already got a few games of it in.

It's taken me awhile to follow up, but in addition to the games my Secret Santa gave me, I also received this custom Agricola T-Shirt and coffee mug. My Secret Santa went all out to make sure I had a unique experience and one I won't soon forget. I'm already excited for the BGG Secret Santa 2012!

I scored the mother load! Woot!

BIG Thanks go out to my Secret Santa who not only sent me De Vulgari Eloquentia, but also sent me Hermagor, which I never heard of until receiving it. Looking forward to trying out a hopefully hidden gem.

He also sent me a copy C3i magazine featuring new rules for Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 - ? and a game inside the magazine Battle for Moscow (second edition), which looks like a sweet little war game.

However... ahem. He also sent me a copy of Kill Shot. Good to know that Santa has a sense of humor

My Santa was most excellent indeed! I recieved on time package from a Canadian game store with not one but TWO games inside. I have been looking for a copy of To Forge a Realm for awhile now and was uttely STOKED to find a copy wrapped up in my SS box. Then to take it further I found a copy of Discworld: Ankh-Morpork in the box as well! I am a huge Terry Pratchett and love the Discworld. I was hesitant to buy this gem because I feared those who haven't read the books may not get the enjoyment I do from it. That's what makes this a perfect gift! I wanted it but was reluctant to buy it for myself! Kingsburg is a huge hit in my home and it's already been played several times over the holidays. Can't wait to get my AnkH-Morpork on too!

Thanks so much to a great Secret Santa!!!

Thank you so much, Santa. Your gift, a game I have wanted since 2008 but had never managed to get until now, was a bright spot in an otherwise bleak holiday season. Although I haven't managed it against an opponent yet, I have enjoyed the solo variant a few times now.

I'm sorry to be so late in posting this message, Santa. Especially since your gift's arrival, just before the holiday, was perfect in timing. It arrived when I was not home and was hidden by my wife. She wrapped it and I was surprised by it on Christmas morning!

Thanks again!

Due to sheer laziness on my part, I've not gotten around to posting my Secret Santa gift until now. To my Secret Santa; I apologize. Thank you for the very generous gifts!

First, Merchants and Marauders. I'm a fan of AH Blackbeard, but I wanted a pirate game a little less complex for my game group. I think this'll fit the bill nicely.

moving around the packing peanuts revealed:


Mystery Express! Damn! I just got a copy 2 days before the SS box arrived. Well, I think I'll regift this someday to another geek.

As I was dumping the peanuts into my garbage bag (yes, I reuse them), I noticed something I missed earlier. A card game:



Looks like a great beer and pretzels filler for the gang!

Thank you again, Secret Santa, for the great Christmas gift. I hope your Christmas was as fun as mine. See you next year!

This arrived from my Secret Santa several weeks ago. Haven't played it yet as I'm still working through the rulebook but soon, I promise. My wife enjoys playing CDG so this will be swell for both of us!

I received Takenoko, which I've been wanting since seeing the Essen videos (I'm also a sucker for Matagot production values).

Santa also very kindly included a gift for my 5 year old son:


Hey, That's My Fish!

as well as for my younger son:

We were all very excited and happy - thank you Santa!
