I thought it would be fun to see which games were the most popular Secret Santa gifts in 2007. According to the lists, there were 582 uniquely titled games or game expansions given this year. Of those games and expansions, only about 30 titles were given to 10 or more people. In this list, I have included the games (not game expansions - they will be in a seperate list) which were given to 5 or more BGG members. This was a great experience for me and I hope you enjoyed participating in this unique opportunity as much as I did. Thanks to everyone who reported the games they received so I could make this list available.



This list is current as of item 851 on the Secret Santa Gift List.

And the winner is . . . 1960!

You would have thought 2007 was an election year.
This game was given to 40 people from Secret Santa.

This was the first game received, according to the list, so it is only fitting that it be high on the list here. 15 people received this game.

Santa had to stop for reindeer snacks at local zoos throughout the world. Each time he did, they gave him a copy of this game to give away to BGG members!

He gave this game to 14 people.

Santa considered exchanging reindeer for camels as he made his desert deliveries. The reindeer beat the camels in this game, however, so Santa decided to stick with them. 13 geeks were there to witness the game and came back with promotional copies to share with their families.

While Santa was vacationing last summer, he picked up a dozen copies of this game to give out to good little BGG's.

Santa's elves got Rudolph involved with a secret mission to drop 11 of these down the chimneys at various BGG homes - special aerial training missions were involved to get them to the right gamers before the holidays.

A little Christmas magic was used to deliver this one to 11 people. Mrs. Clause enjoyed playing it with Santa so much that she sent it to those people who wanted a nice little game for two.

It's hard to believe the the number one game on BGG was only given out to 11 people this year. I guess he didn't get too many requests because so many of you already own it.

Since Santa's elves are related to the wizards, clerics, warriors and rogues shown in this game, they gave it out to 10 people this year.

When will the elf expansion come out?
Can you preorder it yet?

Santa wants all his secret agents to rid the world of zombies, so . . .

he provided a scenario where you can do just this and he enclosed the secret plans in this game when he gave it to 10 of you.
