With the various Black Friday deals and some better personal economics I've had a few game purchases shipped to the house lately.

Where they've been intercepted by my wife and stashed in her secret Santa place...or something....

So not only do I get what I really want, but I have plenty of time to go shopping for others!

Merry Christmas to all!

I go to a LGS with my wife and make a pile of games I am interested in. Then I leave the store. She buys the ones she thinks she'll like the most and then I get those for xmas.

I went the opposite way this year. I felt like I was maybe drooling too much over too many things and I decided to cancel my pre order.

Spouse will NOT get me a game that I have talked about.Spouse likes to surprise me with games that were not on my radar. It used to throw me off but I will say we had many good surprised. And I think I appreciated even more when I understand why the game was picked (matches my birthplaceb matches where we got married, matches an inside joke...)

Happy you are getting EXACTLY what you like. At a point or another we all got that one gift that makes us say "Why?....just Why??..."

She usually picks out one game that I didn't put in the pile. I think it is the one time a year she looks up things on BGG
