It's that time of the year again! Time to relax over the summer, enjoy the company of friends and loved ones and play with some fancy game!

And while we're all on holidays, FTL Secret Santa is always busy, preparing gifts for the coming winter season and spoiling a little bit more even during the summer the many friends and thriends who daily meet on FTL!

Post here your goodies once you receive them!

Have a hug,


FTL SSS

She sent me three waves of gifts:





The Imperial Settlers expansion is something i have been looking forward to as its one of my FAVORITE games. Innovation is something i played last year and fell in love with. Hanamikoji is something that has intrigued me since i discovered it.

Thank you so much Alicia! When things settle down with the move i will be playing these. (I have already taught the boyfriend IS and he loved it. Soon, the new expansion will be added)

Thank you so very much!!

Isle of Skye is one that caught my eye when it first came out, and it's also one my husband was drawn to in the game store a few months back, so what a great gift for us both! I read the rules, and I'm delighted that it seems super easy to learn! I can't wait to try it, and I think this may even work better for us with two players than Castles of Mad King Ludwig, which has a similar mechanic of setting prices for tiles.

Also, this wouldn't be a package from Da Ork if it didn't have some My Little Pony goodies, so inside were a few photos/postcards! Also inside were some little rock/beads, and some foam shapes that my cat has claimed as his own...he likes to push them around with his paws and play with them, and the other cat has started to notice as well. Something for the whole family in this delivery!

Thanks again for the lovely gift!

And now it is my turn.

A package from Santa, USA was at my doorstep today.

When I opened it, I saw this promising sight:



Uh - cookies...

In the box I found Firefly: Out to the Black, two boxes of cookies and other delicacies. Yummy!



I love the Firefly 'verse, and looks forward to play the game. I have never seen it in Denmark!

Thanks Secret Santa!

Soooo, June, 26th: an awesome day (finally yesterday we got a huge thunderstorm and we were able to have one night of decent sleep), made even more awesome by Santa passing by.

Big parcel, plus, I was in a bit of a dry spell with new games (I think the latest addition to my collection dated more than 2 months ago), so, I was super-excited

Well, the parcel says "fragile", not "uncuttable", so, with the precision of a surgeon...




The inside of the parcel made me completely pleased:



(there's nothing more upsetting than a bumped game box on delivery)


Removed the protection, I've found a delightful card and a perfectly wrapped gift:




Once unwrapped the game, I discovered:



which is super-fantastic! I've read a ton of good comments on Orleans, and now that I have the expansion, I've got one more good reason to get the core game!!!


Thanks Santa! You're awesome! kiss

I had the privilege of playing this game once at a friends house. Sadly this friend is a one and done kind of player, so I knew i wouldn't have a chance to be able to play it again. *sigh*. I really hate that this guy is a one and done kind of gamer... but he is a great friend. Ya take the god with the bad.

So here comes my secret santa.... Caysi

Ironically she has been my secret santa before, and she ALWAYS nails it out of the park with her choices. I am addicted to playing keyflower, though sadly mostly through BGG. Seems my friends are a little imtimidated with the game, and I really want to get that to table, it's a beautiful game!

And now, I have ANOTHER beautiful game! Above and Below.

Caysi you really know how what games in my wishlist are going to make an impact on me. After Naomi has the baby, she has already stated she wants to give it ago. She just wants to wait until she is a little more comfortable to sit down and play.

6. Board Game: Cube Quest [Average Rating:6.86 Overall Rank:1286]

I got a message that my gift will be send in two parts with one part handled the Amazon elves. I decided to wait for both packages to arrive before opening them.

Fortunately the Amazon elves used DHL or I wouldn't be able to redirect package to my workplace and would have to get to other end of my city.

The other package took more time to arrive. It seems that I had more patience than my Santa who was thinking about nuking postal system.


Julia turned out to be my Santa.


Cube Quest was one of the games that I almost ordered myself immediately after learning about so Julia chose very well.

Candies turned out to be very tasty. I have to restrain myself to not devour them and am eating just few daily. Mom said they taste funny.

I started giggling after unwrapping smaller gifts so much that my dog, Kiełek, wanted to join the fun and brought me a ball. Also it's clear now why the package took so long to arrive. Julia must have send it by unicorn mail and the unicorn broke its leg (nothing a glue can't fix).

The poop must be real because Kiełek was interested in it.

Thank You very much, Santa Julia.
