Give: Iliad, Catan Card Game, Loot, Head-to-Head Poker
Get : Samurai, Poison, Twilight Struggle, Jericho, Five Crowns, To Court The King

This is the most games I've ever got at Christmas...thanks to my Secret Santa and my wife overcoming her fear of ordering merchandise over the internet. As far as giving, aside from my Secret Santa target, the only folks that like getting games at Christmas as much as I do are my brother and my old college bud's young 'uns...

Merry Christmas!

As I am a last minute shoper I haven't finnished shoping yet... (well let add that components of my family dont really mix)
And I didn't get no games either.

The Give list for late gifts at the moment is:
One or two of the sugestions in http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/141667 , probably a late Spank The Monkey for my mum and her boyfriend, for my Grandparents, I am thinking to buy them, or well grandfather either Ticket To Ride (He worked in trains in the late 40's and 50s, through to the 60s if I get it right...) or Thurn and Taxis (sorting mail, and that he did until pension) but it probably will just be the one or two first ones.
