I'm sure many of you had the pleasure of giving a good game or more as Christmas presents this year. Personally, I succumbed to the (justified) hype surrounding Tajemnicze Domostwo and bought it as one of the presents for my girlfriend. What did you give?

Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game- for my comic/Dominion/co-op-loving father
Zombies!!!- for my zombie-loving brother-in-law
BANG!: Halo- for my Halo loving friend
Parade- for White Elephant, ended up going to my bro-in-law
Pandemic: The Cure- for me

I try to do my best to give gifts that I'm sure no one will like, but that connect board games to something they do actually like.

I bought my daughter duck! duck! Go! because she collects duck things. It was a minor hit. The rest of the family hated the programmed movement. But they all agreed it was the perfect game for her.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Dobble and Looping Louie.

I gift non-game related gifts to my family and friends.
I do have a client at work who has interest in card games so I got her a copy of Love Letter.

Gave my brother-in-law Flash Point: Fire Rescue. He's a casual gamer who seems to really like coops, so I thought it was up his alley.

Got my brother the Magic: The Gathering Holiday Gift box so that he won't have to store his cards with rubber bands in a shoebox any more. The horror!

Same here. He played it at last year's BGG.Con and I finally got around to getting him his own copy.

Mostly kids games for my nephews:

Ghost Blitz
Rhino Hero
The boys loved them.


And for my non-gaming wife:
Marrying Mr. Darcy
Asked if she return it. soblue I know she likes the book. I tried.

I also gave some of my co-workers
Sole Mio!
I got them for .50 a piece so if they use them for fodder I am okay with that!

Cards Against Humanity for my eldest niece and her husband. Any gathering with him is full of off colour jokes, so I reckon they'll like this. Sadly, didnt get a chance to break it out on the day.

Walk the Plank! - nephew
Guillotine - niece
BANG! The Dice Game - nephew

Gifted Catan to my sister, which is ironic because she got me the game for Xmas 2 years ago.

The only gaming gifting we did this year was through the bgg secret santa. A co worker of mine is giving her sons Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride: Europe this year though. THey are just entering the world of board gaming.
