Just added a new Secret Santa Poll . Head over to [geekurl=http://boardgamegeek.com/article/7924278#7924278]Week 2 Secret Santa Poll[/geekurl] to see how everyone is faring thus far in this year's event. And of course, add your votes!

ALRIGHT! It is time once again for the annual Secret Santa List, this time the 2011 Edition. 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, you may want to make a note on your profile with a link to your entry so your Secret Santa can easily locate your confirmation of delivery and your reaction. That way your Secret Santa can look to see if you received your gift and you can post any comments you may have about the gift here and you can reply without the identity of your Secret Santa ever having to be released!

Please only make an entry when you actually receive the present! This assists those of us who read the list regularly as recipients are adding their gifts in a chronological order. No placeholder entries, please.

In years past this list has been heavily monitored as the gifting season approaches and I am sure the same will hold true this year.

Last year there were 1,437 unique entries spread over 58 pages. I'm curious to see how huge it grows this year. As a tip - if you go looking through the previous years' lists, please be mindful of which year you are actually posting your gift to. There have been multiple occasions of people posting a gift from the current year on the previous year's list. That would likely diminish the chances of your Secret Santa getting around to seeing it...

I find it very handy to put a link on your profile page so your Secret Santa knows where you have posted the feedback so s/he doesn't have to sort through 2000 entries to find yours quickly.


To see all previous years' editions of this list and to give the new Secret Santa participants an idea of how this works, look at these links:

"2010 List"

"2009 List"

"2008 List"

"2007 List"

"2006 List"

does a superb job using the data from this list to create his great statistical look at the hottest gifts of the season. This year's version of his list is located at:

Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2011


Last year: Most Popular Secret Santa Games of 2010

Want some for your stocking? Simon also runs a Secret Santa Sweepstakes which is located at:

This year: 2011 Secret Santa Sweepstakes

Last year: 2010 Secret Santa Sweepstakes


IMPORTANT - When you get your gift(s), take the time to "Add Item" to this GeekList rather than place a comment at the bottom of the list. This helps the statisticians out there.

A good example of how to make an entry containing multiple gifts is located at: this entry.

Making an actual entry will also make it easier for your Secret Santa to locate your Item.


If you would like to taunt your "target" while maintaining your secret identity, you can do so using the Santa logon. Just log yourself off and close any BGG windows (if you don't you take the chance of being discovered if the new username doesn't take) and log on using this info:

Username: santa
Password: password



I hope you have a terrific holiday season and enjoy the list!

I received a slip in my mailbox, so I went to my appartment complex's office, expecting to find Quarriors!, which I recently won in a GeekList auction. Instead I discovered this package (Puerto Rico is in the picture to show scale):

It seemed a little big, and indeed, it turned out to be from my Secret Santa.

The box contained Navegador and King of Tokyo, both very high on my wishlist.

A big "Thank You" goes out to my generous and fast Secret Santa!

My Secret Santa is totally awesome and ships faster than I can solve his riddles.

Only on Friday I found a geekmail from Santa in my inbox with quite some tough riddles inside and while I'm still working on those, I already receive some nicely wrapped boxes. Seems they were delivered yesterday, while we were out and then today, they were dropped off by our neighbours who accepted the delivery for us...

Here's the first shots of the boxes (before...):



(and after opening of the outer packaging):



Santa put instructions on each box; my interpretation is that the small one can be opened before xmas (in order to bring it along on a trip) and the big one should stay unopened til THE day... I will ask Santa for confirmation and anyway, I still need to solve those riddles... ninja

Best is, Santa hinted that this is only part 1 of 2 shipments that are on the way. How cool is that?

I'll update this post with new info, when it becomes available.

EDIT:
I opened the smaller package (to bring it along on vacation) and found:

Court of the Medici

It's still waiting its first play now that we are back from the trip (too busy to play), but I'm looking forward to try it out. It's one item off my wishlist and after reading the rules, it sounds similarly evil as Babel (Kosmos 2 player series) that my wife and I really enjoy playing.

Also, on the last day before leaving for the vacation, I received a notification about the second shipment and was just able to pick that one up from the post office before heading to the airport. As it was unwrapped in the envelope, I know that it's:

The Resistance

Cool! Another item off my wishlist that should be fun to play with a larger group, maybe already on New Year's?

I'll update the thread further when I unwrapped the last gift and maybe, I'll add some photos too...

Thanks a lot Santa! Your picks are great so far

EDIT2:

The last box really made it under the tree:



And I found:

Die Säulen von Venedig

another item off my wishlist. Thanks Santa!!

Til now, we managed to play 2 out of the 3 games; only 'CotM' is still waiting for its chance...

So, after being warned to expect reindeer soon and having received a sizable heavy box from Shire Games, I could only conclude it was my present from Santa! I opened it up to reveal not one but two beautifully wrapped boxes

Now, I tried to be good, I really did...but I cracked and opened one. Inside the paper was Fresco, something I've been wanting for a while! Thank you so much Santa, whoever you are You have been extremely generous and i look forward to opening the second box on Christmas morning!

I have now opened the second package, and found Merchants & Marauders, again something I've wanted for a while Thanks again!

So I was away for some military duties over the weekend and when I got home today I found a Package sitting beside my fireplace. I walked by it several times contemplating on opening it. I finally gave in.

Wow!!!! Just got home from BGG.con. Went for some groceries, started some laundry, began thinking about what I wanted for dinner - then noticed through a window that there was a package sitting by the front door. Did I order anything? Couldn't remember but usually I try not to order when I am going to be out of town. Checked it and it was from CoolStuffInc - it I send in an order? did a preorder from months ago that I had forgotten about come? (yes, I have forgotten about preorders before.

I opened the package and saw Belfort on top. Oh, no! blush That is on my wishlist that I told my Secret Santa was a good list. Like an idiot I preordered it - I had considered this months ago and maybe I went through with it. The box clearly was too big for a single gift so Secret Santa didn't cross my mind. Next in was Thunderstone: Heart of Doom. Santa is going to put me on the naughty list. How could I do this to him/her?

Digging deeper I found Panic Station. And on top of it was a little not that read:
Congratulations!
Your Secret Santa used
CoolStuffInc.com
To Send You a Gift!


Did I say WOW!!!

So I immediately logged on and saw Santa had sent me two messages. One telling me the presents were on the way. The second asking me if they had arrived.

Answer: They have arrived. They are being fondled now. I am shocked, amazed and overwhelmed. When I regain my strength I will de-shrinkwrap them.

Thank you.
Thank. You.
THANK YOU!

BWA HA HA HA!

Santa sent me a quick message a couple weeks ago, I am used to being toyed with for a bit so I just let it slide. Apparently Santa is getting more efficient this year! Within A week there is a knock on my door, a package quickly put into my bewildered bands and I am left to my own devices...



What could it be? I realized a bit late that when Santa first sent me the message that I hadn't updated my Wishlist since last Christmas, so my list was probably not the easiest to work from. So what I was getting was a complete surprise.

But a damn Nice one!



Tanto Cuore! A game I have been trying to get imported from Japan since I first heard about it.
and Batt'L Khaos A game I have never heard of, but after going over the rules looks right up my alley!

W00t w00t!

and a quick pic of the card;



Thanks Santa!

I received a package from my FLGS last friday. Since I had an order there I was merely surprised they sent it to my home instead of asking me to pick it up. Then it hit me, hey maybe Secret Santa decided to use my local gamestore and had them send something over.

Now being very excited I checked my geekmail to see if any instructions were there from Santa. But he remained the strong and silent type. So seeing no reason not to open the box I tore the box open only two find two nice wrapped presents inside. No need to stop now my wife said, so I opened them both and found:

Dixit: Odyssey


This makes my Dixit collection complete. Can't wait to get this awesome game to the table again with even more of these excellent cards. Brilliant gift Santa!

Lunch Money


This one was a bit strange since I already owned this game. The expansion Beer Money was on my wishlist so I guess Santa or my FLGS made a little mistake here. But no worries. Since it was ordered from my FLGS I'll just go over there and exchange it for Beer Money. And that will make my Lunch Money game complete again. Oh how I love the dark imagery this simple take that game has. Superb taste here Santa!

Overall two very different games which I both love. Thanks a million SSSS (Strong and Silent Secret Santa)!!!

My Secret Santa was extremely quick and generous this year. My landlord delivered the package to me yesterday and at first I thought it was a Kickstarter project that I've been expecting. I opened it up and it wasn't what I was expecting at all but even better! I've been very interested in this Martin Wallace game and I'm excited to try it out! But that's not all. The box also contained this expansion to one of my favorite games:

Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game – Fame and Fortune



This was an awesome surprise because I didn't even realize this was out. For some reason I was thinking it wasn't going to be available until early next year.

Thanks Secret Santa! Your generosity is incredible!

I got one! late in the day, 4pm, a package was delivered, from Games Lore. I don't have anything ordered from Games Lore, and Santa had advised me a present was on the way, so I know this is it!

Problem is... I did open the box. The present isn't giftwrapped, but it was covered in packing peanuts... I just uncovered one corner of it, and saw a picture of a WWII tank... so I guess it's a wargame (Doesn't narrow it down much on my wishlist...)

But I was under the impression the present on the way was from my regular Santa, not my Wargame Santa... So, is this from my regular Santa sending me a wargame, or my wargame Santa?

And how long can I wait before I clear the rest of the peanuts off?

UPDATE: Still haven't uncovered any more of the box, but I realised where that pic appeared - bottom left corner of this game box! Which is excellent - not only do I love the LnL games, but I also have some extra scenarios that need this game!

Thanks, Santa, whichever one you are!

ANOTHER UPDATE: GamesLore aren't terribly good at keeping Santa Secret... So, thanks, Santa, it's a small world! whistle

AND ANOTHER: Confirmed, this was my regular Santa's present. Santa Grogs has confirmed my Wargame SS present is on the way too...

This morning I found a package at the front door and was slightly puzzled as to where it came from. I was sure my recent Christmas gift purchases had all arrived and I wasn't waiting on anything?

On closer inspection I noticed that the address label (from a tried and true supplier whom I frequent far too often) was slightly different. I certainly never have my country or phone number including international code on it...

Well I thought this must be from my Secret Santa and his Ninja Elves! ninja

Only one way to find out so I ripped into it shake

Thank you Santa for my copy of Dixit but also...


Great gifts that will be enjoyed immensely!!

Merry Christmas to you and yours and all the best for an Awesome 2012!

Thank you Secret Santa whoever you are you've made my holiday bright.

*** Update: My Santa was silly and thought I had bought the present for myself when actually it was from him! Santa you only checking your list once this year? Santa u crazy. ***

Wow! What a great Secret Santa year. Not only did my Secret Santa send me two geekmails asking for some additional information (which I quickly obliged, of course), but he also sent me TWO gifts!

The first is this dandy little number that I am definitely looking forward to playing:



Then, Secret Santa also did a great job by adding in an expansion to a game that I really like:



Now, here is the crazy thing - I own quite a few expansions, but am slowly trying to divest myself of them, as I am leaning more towards the "clean" games that are published "As Is". However, 7 Wonders: Leaders is definitely one of those expansions that is a keeper, for sure.

Thanks, Secret Santa! You made it a great Christmas for me indeed!

(And no, I have no self control, and could not really wait more than about 30 minutes before tearing open the package.)

wohooooo, got mine!
my mother called me today and told me i have some packages waiting for me at the post office. yeah, you guessed it, I was there in a flash to pick up the little green papers needed to pick up the packages and off to the post office!
three boxes were waiting for me


so i opened them. dang...real presents. nice!


but my Santa was so nice to let me know to open them up without hesitation....hesitate i shall not!
and inside were Chaos in the Old World: The Horned Rat Expansion, Jungle Speed


and Wings of War: Deluxe Set


I love Chaos on the old world. it's simply an awesome, asymmetrical and a wonderfully balanced game. and now we can play with 5! indeed my most wanted expansion ever!
I saw Wings of War on Essen 2007 and have been drooling whenever i saw someone playing the game with the minis chasing each other around the table. now finally I can turn my own table into a WWI airshow

Thank you secret Santa!

This was also sent, along with a first player spinning finger!

Also www.gamesurplus.com did a great job packing and shipping the item.

As this is Thanksgiving week in the U.S. and here I am, an American living in Canada, I was starting to feel sort of down today. I get home to find the package from my Secret Santa! Not only do I find what was at the top of my wishlist, "Merchants & Marauders", but in addition there was a copy of "Batt'l Kha'os" a game I have not heard of, but looks REALLY intriguing. What a great way to end a stressful day. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Santa!!!! You're the best! laugh

Santa was incredibly generous to me. Not only did I receive a nice package waiting for me when I returned from BGG.con, but it's also my #1 draft pick! But that's not all... A copy of Incan Gold was thrown in just in time for Thanksgiving family beat downs, I mean get togethers.

I'm sure s/he has no idea how grateful and excited I am for helping cap off a fantastic game filled week.

Thanks Santa!!!!!
