Hello Santa,

I have received both packages. I was very surprised about the contents of the one you sent yourself. I'll be sure to try the game out.

I have posted an item on the "look what..." geeklist: here.

Obrigado and Feliz Natal, Santa!

Hello Santa,

Thank you for the tracking numbers. The one from CTT.PT works like a charm (parcel is in Frankfurt at the moment), but the one from DHL does not work. Are you sure there's not a wrong number in it?

Hi Santa,

Ooo, I eagerly await the delivery.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Hello Santa,

I have always preferred blue over red.

(Gee, what game could that be...? )

Thank you!

Hello again, Santa,

I have no problems with used games, as long as they are in a decent condition (i.e. complete and not too smelly or damaged). My copy of Ra is from eBay.

So, I'd welcome any used games as sweetener, and again, I thank you for your efforts.

Hello Santa,

First of all, thank you for your kind mails.

You asked me what I think about PnP games. To be honest, my experience with those is limited.

- I once whipped up a quick Zombie in my Pocket, but was bored after two games. I really can't understand the appeal.
- I was once interested in D-Day Dice, and made the PnP version to try it. Found out that it wasn't my cup of tea either.
- I once made a pretty good-looking copy of Atolla Modulis (fan expansion for Funkenschlag), but it was only played once.
- Years ago, I made PnP versions of published games to try them with my gaming group before buying them.

Now, games that are purely PnP are something I have little interest in, even if I admit that there are probably gems hidden there. I also have little love for abstract strategy games, so games like Micropul would probably be wasted on me.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Dear Secret Santa,

First of all, thank you very much for doing this.

This is the fourth Secret Santa program I'm participating in, and I've always sent my gift very promptly.

In Luxembourg, we can play games in German, English, or French. Personally, this is also my order of preference, except for very thematic games (Fantasy Flight Games, for example) where I prefer English.

Since we don't have any online shops in Luxembourg to speak of, you have no choice but to order games from foreign countries, like Germany, France, Belgium, or the UK. Amazon.de delivers to Luxembourg with no shipping costs if it comes from Amazon directly (they often use third-party stores who do charge shipping costs). There is a list of potential shops in this GL item I wrote: Sending Parcels to Luxembourg.

If you are using a store in Germany, please have the parcel delivered to the following address:
TV Logistik
Alain Baum 62012001
Gottbillstrasse 34E
Trier 54294
Germany/Deutschland


If you are using a store in France, please have the parcel delivered to the following address:
Transports Lauer
Alain Baum 62012001
3, rue des Artisans
Hettange-Grande 57330
France


This allows you, dear Santa, to stay inside the country and thus save shipping costs. It also allows me to fetch the parcel in a convenient location in my home town at my convenience, since the local postal service will transport the parcel from Germany or France to Luxembourg into a parcel pickup case.

If you order or send the parcel from any other country, I'd appreciate if you'd use standard postal service or DHL rather than a courier like UPS or FedEx, if possible. If you use postal service or DHL, please make the following changes to the address given to you by BGG:
- change name to "Alain Baum 62012001"
- change ZIP code to "0672"

That way, I can fetch the parcel from a parcel pickup case. Otherwise, I have to drive to the courier's depot, since I'm rarely at home.

If there's anything unclear, just send me a GM, and I'll try to clear things up.

Anyway, thanks again for your participation in the program and I wish you a merry holiday season and a happy new year!
