Ok, so to be truthful this Christmas didn't involve a thousand board games. I choose the title because when we asked my 5 year old son what he wanted Santa to bring him for Christmas he said, "A thousand board games!" His reason, because he wanted to have a bigger board game collection than Daddy! Yes, I am a very happy Geek Dad! This is a list of the games he got for Christmas and the few I got as well.

Every year right before my son's birthday, the local Meijer (for those who don't know what Meijer is, it's a store like Walmart or Target but only in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Illinois) clearance's out a bunch of toys and games to 75% off. This year I picked up a few games to get my son for Christmas. This one and...

A good friend of mine is getting ready to move away. And he had a bunch of games he got from his old job, all of which were still in shrink. He gave me a few of these games rather than have to pack them up and move them. I figured that a few would make great gifts for my son.

We told him that Santa can't bring him a thousand board games, and so we narrowed down to just a few games to put into his letter to Santa. One of the first games he wanted was Operation Despicable Me 2. (Couldn't find a picture listed under Operation)

And this rounds out the games my son got for Christmas. This one from his Mamaw, aka my mother in law. So, although the boy didn't get a thousand board games he got a nice chunk of games to add to his collection. Although he has a long way to go to catch up to Daddy. Especially because I got....

This was actually a present from my son and his twin sisters. Can't wait to add this into the rest of the game and other expansion and get it to the table.

And as my last game gift, my parents got me a copy of Zombie Dice.

Not nearly as many games as the boy got, but then again my collection is still much much larger than his. But if he keeps up with this sort of pace, it will only take a few more birthdays and holidays for him to surpass me.
