2018 Edition of Look What My Secret Santa Sent Me...
- Gary C(ghcstr)United States
Octavian for keeping BGG's greatest tradition (at least for me) going.
For those of you who are new to the list:
I run this list as a central location to let your Secret Santa know when your (hopefully much appreciated) gift has arrived. Use this list to record what your Secret Santa sent you and remember to include any comments such as thanks that you want to give your Secret Santa. When you post on this list, it is helpful to place a note on your profile page with a link to your entry so your Secret Santa can easily locate your confirmation of delivery and your reaction. That will allow your Secret Santa to easily look at your profile to see if/when you received your gift and you can post any comments you may have about the gift on this list and let all the rest of the BGG Community to vicariously join in the celebration along with you! Sounds creepy, but its a good thing. No, really.
Please only make an entry when you actually receive the gift! This assists those of us who subscribe and read the list regularly as recipients are adding their gifts in a chronological order.
Santas: I recommend you subscribe to your target to see all their BGG activity...not weird at all, trust me... ) This will give you a notification when your target posts on the list.
To peruse the 12 previous years of this list, and to give the new Secret Santa participants an idea of how this works, look at these links:
Further helpful hints:
IMPORTANT - When you get your gift(s), take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than just place a comment at the bottom of the list. This helps the statisticians out there plus your Santa who may be looking for your entry by clicking on your GeekList items from your profile! Listing an item in the comments will simply be missed by many of the readers. Please create an actual GeekList Item entry. Last year, 2017, there were 67 pages with 1661 unique entries. Many contained multiple games. And many other entries contained multiple multiple multiple games which would simply be unmanageable down in the generic comments section.
A good example of how to make one single entry containing multiple gifts is located at: this entry.
If you would like to taunt your "target" while maintaining your secret identity, or to be able to communicate to your Santa while maintaining Santa's anonymity, you will see two options on your Secret Santa page - "Send Message to Your Gifter" and "Send Message to Your Recipient" I am glad to see this feature return and replace the former Santa geekmail account.
Please support these terrific Secret Santa lists. If you have another Secret Santa related GeekList or a Forum conversation you would like added, send me a GeekMail and I will add it here:
