First a poem. I found this while delivering my Secret Santa presents this year. I can only assume someone wrote it about good old 2010. I, of course, am the one in the hat!


'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the village
Not a creature was stirring, afraid of future pillage;
The pitchforks were hung by the chimney with care,
In fear that the werewolves soon would be there;


The children were huddled with fear in their beds,
While visions of bloodshed danced in their heads;
And mamma the seer, and I with my bow,
Were leaving for guard duty out in the snow,


When in the town square there arose such a clatter,
Mama ran to the window to see what's the matter.
Away to the roof I flew like a flash,
Looking for wolves, teeth ready to gnash.


The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to creatures below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature tree, made out of 12 spears,


Poking around were strong furry backs,
One with a Red hat, All carrying sacks,
My first thought was to sound the alarm.
But the closer I looked there didn't seem to be harm,


A wink of Red hats eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
He laid out the presents; then he turned with a jerk,


As he heard the mob coming, poised to attack.
I thought he would try and eat a late snack,
Instead he sprang towards the woods, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.


But I heard him Growl, as they ran out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."


THE RULES:

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 Secret Santa, who reads the list regularly, as recipients are adding their gifts in a chronological order.

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.

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

And as always, enjoy this brief respite from werewolf attack. January comes all too soon. . . . . . .

I received a mysterious package from funagain. I assume it's from my SS. I'll update after the So Cal SS opening party.

Happy Holidays!

Edit: It's Lost Cities! My Fiancé loves this game. It will definitely see lots of play.

Here in the proper forum I offer my thanks to my secret santa. Martian Dice is a great little game, and I love playing it with my son. I had assumed I would have to wait until Christmas Day to get it, I'm quite thrilled to have it sooner. I think I'm giving it to at least 3 people this year.

Also, thankyou for the pretty card protectors.

I recieved an absolutely overwhelming looking package from Santa, and I must admit that I could not resist opening it. (Living at a Dorm people do tend to look when you carry HUGE envolopes through your kitchen).
It was a 2 in 1.
Breaking out the first one was The Resistance

I had a game night on Saturday. We started with RoboRally (which I totally won because I am awesome at RoboRally, by the way) and moved on to start discussing other games.

Because of its similarity to RoboRally, one of the ones we talked about was Space Alert, or as one person described it, "that game with the audio CD and all the yelling and the stress". We decided that we should play it again sometime.

So it was very timely when the FedEx man rang the doorbell that evening and delivered a package from WW Secret Santa containing that very game! It didn't hit the table this weekend, but I'm sure we'll get it out soon.

Santa, you came through with something awesome! I just got Quarriors at BGG.con this year and have already played it quite a bit. Ruth really enjoys it, and I'm getting some other friends hooked (including one who hates Dominion with a passion, so I'm glad to bring her into the deck-building fold). As soon as I heard about this expansion with its Curse-like Corruption dice and more directly screw-your-neighbor cards, I knew I wanted it. Perfect for Christmas! I'm so excited to try it out! Ruth and I will play it soon, as soon as we have table space again (everything is covered in tarps right now for our ceilings getting installed).

In addition to noticing the glaring omission of WW-esque games in my library Santa Wolf also sent me a lovely instructional as well as inpirational poem, two origami wolf pack-mates, a portable Ultimate Werewolf kit and .... is that a keychain with wolfsbane on it??

So, my WW Secret Santa experience starts off with my receiving a geekmail from my secret santa telling me a story about my present with different microbadges that I had. Some were from the April Fool's Day hunt, but was still incredibly humourous. He brought up duct tape, and that my favorite color was pink, and bubble wrap. They brought up how I got a monopoly microbadge, and even threantened to send me a pink monopoly! Oh Santa... you are so silly...

I open my package today, and definitely cannot wait until Christmas. It doesn't help that I have crambaza standing over me asking what I got. I open the package to find a whole lot of packing peanuts, but in the mix of the packing peanuts, you see that there are foam reindeer in there. (Incredibly cute, I might add).

I clear all that out, and see that I have two wrapped gifts, and Christmas card... and this!



That's right, Christmas mix of Jelly Belly's.

I then go to open my card, because my mother always taught me to open my card before I open my presents.



Santa probably chose this card because of the 'lost' microbadge I have. Because on the front of the card, santa got lost..

Now I have my two other presents. A bigger one, and a smaller one. I opt to open the bigger one first. And would you believe it? It is wrapped in bubble wrap. (you know, because of the microbadges). I open up the wrapping paper to find a wrapping of pink duck tape. All around the game. I find the opening, but to my relief, there is another round of wrapping paper underneath, as to not damage the game. (Thanks Santa!)

After removing all the wrapping, I open it to find...



I love crayon rail games. Like LOVE crayon rail games. My absolute fave. I already own several of them, and whenever asked what game I want to play, I chose one of them. I am SOOO happy that I have another, because crambaza was starting to get a little annoyed with playing the same games over and over again.

So I then turn to my final gift. I got my Jelly Belly's and my Lunar Rails, and my bubble wrap. I start to open the package, but I see a piece of paper still in the box. I unfold it (because I had a folding microbadge) to see there is a Christmas werewolf game. Jam packed with what a story would be, what the roles are, what the roles do, and telling me about the theme and mechanics behind it.



I have never modded a game before! I was so happy that my Santa gave me this, so I could do a game! (I will check to see if this is already running, before I start to try it).

I go to open my final present and find this.



Hand made WW Christmas edition cards for the game that I was just given. That was what really made this Christmas gift for me. Taking the time to do all this stuff, and on top of it, giving me a Christmas edition of Werewolf....

BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!

THANKS SANTA!!

(Note: Original item was Stone Age: The Expansion)

This is also a placeholder, but if style really was the goal, then my Werewolf Secret Santa has all of the tools:



I love the claw marks! It's taking all of my restraint (of which there is precious little) not to tear into the package myself!

d10-5d10-7d10-5d10-7d10-5d10-7d10-5d10-7d10-5d10-7d10-5d10-7d10-5d10-7d10-5

Christmas finally arrived, and I carefully opened my "torn" package to reveal Mondo! A Michael Schacht design that was a Spiel des Jahres recommendation this year, and also finished 6th in the voting for the Deutscher Spiele Preis. I've heard that it is great for all audiences including non-gamer wives. I'm really looking forward to bringing it to the table!

Thank you, Werewolf Secret Santa! And even though I didn't participate in The Amazing Race, I have to wonder if this gift was more than just coincidence...

My SS came through brilliantly. Medici is the only game I was missing from the Knizia auction trilogy (actually, I have Hollywood Blockbuster, so I have the tetralogy).

Auction is my favorite mechanism and Ra and Modern Art are 2 of my favorite games. Some don't like the auction-only aspect of these, so they are hard to get to the table, but I am glad to complete the set.

My SS also awesomely threw in 2 expansions from the Geek store:

China: The Embassies


and Fresco: The Bishop's Favor


I am way more excited about these than I would have exptected. One reason is that it will push me to get China to the table. I love Web of Power but have not been able to try this newish version.

Another is that they are a complete surprise, which is fun.

And, though I am generally not a fan of expansions, I think they work well for Fresco. In fact, my SS may have cost me some money because, though I usually dislike expansions, I am still a completist at heart (for evidence of this, I reference my complete and largely unplayed Arkham Horror collection) and now I pretty much will be buying Fresco: Expansion Modules 4, 5 and 6.

Finally, my WW threw in a T-shirt presumably to be worn to live WW games (and maybe when I go out clubbing):



Thanks SS! My gift greatly exceeded my expectations.

Since I'm going home for Christmas this year, I was waiting until it was closer to Christmas to open my gift, but finally decided it was time as I wanted to open it before I left.

What a wonderful choice! Leaders adds some real spice to 7 Wonders and after playing it at BGG.con it went right onto my list, and presto!

Thank you so much Santa! I'll never play base 7 Wonders again!

Not to have my SS worry, I have received a nicely wrapped package from my Werewolf secret santa. I'm fighting with my inner child, making him wait to open it, but we'll see how long I can hold him off ninja

Will update when I succumb.

Thank you Secret Santa.

Update: it's dixit, which I have wanted for a long while now, and intend to use as a gateway game with some friends. Played the new expansion with my game group the other night ( 9 people dixit ) and it was great fun.

Thanks again secret Santa !

The package actually arrived earlier, but I was studying out of state and so only got it when I arrived here yesterday. EXCITING TO THE MAXX!!! When reading this thread, I told myself I would wait for Christmas to open mine... but when I got the package, I tore it open before I even remembered that you're supposed to wait for Christmas.

Oh well.

The package was amazing to the point of scary laugh
I haven't played Cyrano yet, but it looks really really fun! Certainly seems perfect for my family. Thanks Santa!

UPDATE!

So during the last couple of months, clockworkd & I have had our beloved plush sea otters Philippe & Philip as our BGG names/avatars, for Belash's Amazing Race game.

When my WW Secret Santa first geekmailed me, I was thrilled to realize that he had recognized Philippe's namesake! Santa said I was a very special person and even asked if I liked pistachios!

Philippe was very excited to see what Santa had brought us, which was...



Biblios! One of my most wanted games for quite some time now. Philippe and I can't wait to try it out tonight.

Thank you so much for Biblios, Santa! It's perfect! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

First, my Werewolf Secret Santa and I have quite the epistolary friendship going on. What I'm saying is, there were quite a few geekmails exchanged. Despite all that, I seriously had no clue who it was! What a wily wolf!

Anyway, the package arrived today with all sorts of fun drawings and taunts on it. "Happy Howl-idays, Blue Lies!"

I opened the outer box to find a card with these awesome origami stars! So cool! How dexterous my santa must be to form those with his paws!

There were three wrapped packages for me to open!

And inside I found the Small World expansion I've wanted for a while. Plus, The Resistance which has become a new favorite game. And I got some coal. I'd like to say I didn't deserve it, but maybe I did. Just a little.

Thank you for everything, Santa! Merry Christmas!

SUPER HAPPY. Clearly Werewolf santa, you are not really wolf. You're probably just a seer or villager or something noone suspects... lol. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Also, I'm sorry I opened already. One day away and I've been trying to pick up this package from the front office the past two/three days. Finally accomplished I needed to open this!

Thank you! My first year participating was so awesome. I LOVED giving to a fellow ww player and my, my santa just knows me so well. hahahahahaha.

Merry Christmas everyone!

My Secret Santa gift arrived in the mail on Christmas Eve Day- talk about perfect timing!

In the box was not only Stone Age which I have wanted for a while-but hidden amongst the pink peanuts was this little box(and for some reason everything mu ipod photographed today was very very yellow)-


Then inside that box was this-



I can't wait to eat them! At the same time I don't want to eat them because then they will be gone.

THank you WW Secret Santa! It was all perfect.

Decided to open on Christmas Day. Got a chance to play it with the family and little cousins and it was a hit.

Granted the reporter (me) did win the game...natural born writer.

Christmas finally arrived and I couldn't wait to open my Secret Santa present. In fact, I didn't even make it downstairs before giving in (I had been keeping it on my bedside table).

It was The Resistance!

Thank you so much Secret Santa. I had really wanted this ever since playing an online version on BGG and it certainly lived up to expectation.

I waited for Christmas lunch to settle before pouncing on the lull to introduce my new game. My family aren't all keen gamers and I'd never been able to get anyone to play anything even vaguely werewolf like before, but after insisting we 'give it a go' The Resistance was a huge hit!

Games were relatively fast-paced but everyone really got into the whole theme and I was delighted to see everyone happily pointing accusatory fingers at each other and shouting "SPY" long after we stopped playing

I was thrilled at the amount of playtime this game has already got in its first two days and can't wait to introduce it to my university gaming group and to try out the "plot thickens" expansion that came with it.

Thanks again Secret Santa, you did a fantastic job. thumbsup

We were out of town for Christmas weekend, so I didn't get my WW Secret Santa package until we got back this afternoon, and WOW!!!

Waiting outside our door was a LARGE package. Opening it up, I found three individually wrapped presents, an envelope, and two packages of delicious-looking fudge!!



After opening it, I found the following:



My favorite game is Power Grid, and my Secret Santa gave me the Brazil & Spain/Portugal expansion map, which is exactly what I wanted, especially since it comes in a box to hold the other maps. I already had the China/Korea map, and had been carrying it around in the original Power Grid box, even though it didn't really fit.

That's not it, though! As you can see, there were also copies of Aton and Possession, which I'm quite excited to try out.

Inside the envelope, I found a really cool set of cards for F2F Werewolf. Maybe my Secret Santa knows that I've only played WW on BGG, and thinks I should be broadening my horizons?



To top all this off, there's the tastiest part of the whole package--the two bags of fudge. Yummy!!



Thank you, WW Secret Santa!!! What incredible presents!!!!
