I got Poseidon and Shadows over Camelot from my wonderful wife this year.

And I also got myself a few things (Ultimate Werewolf: Compact Edition, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, and Jaipur) during all the sales, but I haven't told the wife about those yet.

I received this one as well as

7 Wonders


Thanks to my generous family for some great games. 7 Wonders hit the table and saw 4 consecutive plays, it IS as good as I have read about. Very happy with that one.

Edit: whoops, forgot to add, I bought this for myself:Chaos in the Old World: The Horned Rat Expansion

I got this from two friends at our annual holiday party, and we're hoping to play it in early January.

It's still sitting next to me with its slightly intimidating seal -- "Note: What's done can never be undone" -- unbroken, though I'll probably break the seal so I can read the rules before we play.

Also from me to me -- as well as Fortune and Glory: The Cliffhanger Game in my FLGS (vide supra) I saw a copy of AFAoS. I didn't have enough cash on me buy it at the time (on top of all the other goodies) so asked the owners to hold on to a copy for me, which I duly bought a few days later. Why do I have no self-control?

Played this a week before Christmas with a friend's copy - my wife complained that the team play was aggravating and not fun. This meant one of two things; either she didn't like it, or she had already bought a copy for me and was trying to discourage me from buying a copy for her.

It was the latter - we both like it just fine.

I finally got to open my BIG present from my Secret Santa and got Catacombs which is a game I have wanted ever since I got to play a friends copy. I also got Frank's Zoo from my Secret Santa which has become a family favorite. My better half was nice enough to get me Dominion: Hinterlands which completes my dominion collection. I really like the cards in this expansion.

I also got Batman: Arkham City for the Xbox 360, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for the PS3 and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii. Between those 3 games I should be set until summer time. Overall a very good Christmas. Also got a few cool Lego sets. You would never know that I was a middle aged man
