To show my appreciation for all the goodies from my family, BGG Secret Santa, my husband's Secret Santa, my secret Santa Target, my wonderful husband, and Santa; here is a list filled with EVERYTHING we got this year.

We acquired 26 new games this year for Christmas not counting the two games, White Elephant and Star Trek Catan, we purchased for ourselves while shopping.

I see lots of fun family time in the new year filled with gaming.

This is one of the three games I gave my husband this year. Fortunately, his Secret Santa was kind enough to be super early and I was able to get him games off his wishlist without the fear of duplicating.

The Adventurers: The Pyramid of Horus is the second game I got my husband this year. I got him the original game a couple years ago in hopes of finding a fun but more complex game to play with our boys. My seven year old will really enjoy this one because he loves exploration and archeology.

This is the third game I got for my husband. He originally ordered it from Tanga and waited a really long time only to be told they were sold out. Tanga did credit his money and then some but he was still sad that we didn't have Kingdom Builder. He was particularly excited to see that I remembered this morning.

Pairs in Pears was in my husband's stocking this year. I thought it would be fun to have something from the Bananagram series. Pears seemed appropriate considering we are a pair.

My husband Secret Santa did a wonderful job selecting game for us. He got us the second edition of Merchant of Venus. We played and LOVED this original. However, once my husband read about a reprint, he traded the original and anxiously awaited. We really love this game and I can't wait to play. I like how this game allows you to play either version of the game and the board has two different maps on the front and back.

This is the third game my husband received from his BGG Secret Santa. In his 2nd package all the way from Germany, he also included two expansion decks. Looks like a great game; one that we should be able to give on the table quickly and play often.

My husbands secret santa also sent lots of other yummy chocolate goodies from Germany too!

My Secret Santa introduced me to this game. I'd not heard of it before but when I opened my goodies, the boys were eager to play. They love it. It's really a great game where the kids can make simple but logical decisions that directly effect the outcome of the game.

When my friend visited, she showed some interest in playing as well because her son saw the game on Games with Hayden.

My Secret Santa included this travel edition in the package as well. We used to own this game but I gave it to a friend who really enjoyed playing. I've since missed the game and wanted to replace it with the mini version but I couldn't find the mini version anywhere. Fortunately, my Secret Santa found it! We've already got this game to the table a couple of times too. The boys love it, especially my oldest son who LOVES penguins.

This is another game that my Secret Santa introduced to me. He did a really great job selecting game that I would like that would include my little ones. R-Eco is a fun little card game about separating and dumping garbage. The theme really interests my oldest who makes his way around the housing turning off the lights and running water. This game has also already made it to the table a couple times. It's a nice fun filler that the boys can play and understand.

He also send Crappy Birthday, a game that I've been wanting ever since I read the hilarious review by Endersgame and Domcrap's session report from his son's birthday. The whole family has already played this game twice. I won both times. Momma knows her boys. Granted, it helped that I drew the Penguin collection card.

Not only did he send the games and sign the games, he included the bonus cards.

My mom gave me this game for Christmas which we played with my sister, husband, and nephew during our visit. It was a fun and easy trivia game. I also played it with my sister-in-law while visiting my husband's parents and watching the kids. I think she plans to pick up a copy or a travel trivia deck.

Unfortunately, we couldn't get enough people downstairs with the kids long enough to play Say Anything! But there was an interest in some of the other party games we brought.

Each year, my husband's family draws names. This year, my husband's cool cousins would also game drew our names. They chose WoW: Adventure Game knowing that it was probably a game we would be able to play with the boys. We just opened it but it should be a new family favorite considering my oldest son's current favorite is Castle Panic.
