I got the one game - and my first game for years after the non-gaming wilderness. To 'Gateway' myself back in to the fold and with deepest thanks to the hundreds of stimulating posts about it, I am now the proud owner of...

Ticket to Ride!

It's a good start.

Seasons Greetings!

Well, I didn't technically get any board games for Christmas, though I did purchase 7 Ages, Paths to Glory, and Boomtown for myself and didn't get a chance to open them until Christmas Eve (though whether 7 Ages is really considered a "present" is debatable).

I did, however, get a very, very nice petanque set.

So far Santa's been pretty good to me. Up to now I got:

Ticket To Ride
Renier Knizia's Samurai

I still have my birthday on the 27th, and intelligence reports predict Memoir '44 and the A Clash of Kings expansion for A Game of Thrones!

Now to find the time to play all of these fine games

Cheers,
Thomas

My four year old daughter got Halli Galli, Zitternix, Pet Hunt, and Fairytale Snap - and bless her little heart, she's already made us sit down & play 'em with her - that's my daughter!!

Bumper year for games...
...after a combination of dropping some strong hints and a local store getting a surprise delivery of high quality games I got:

Ticket to Ride
Doom
Lost Cities
and Axis & allies D-Day

from my good lady Mrs. P

We've played several games of Lost Cities already.

Though it was the most eagerly awaited game, I haven't played Doom yet (a little too much Christmas spirit - hic) but the sheer quality of what you get in the box has blown me away!

Pig Hammer!!!
Treated myself to:

Goa (love the game...needed to have it)
Razzia (played once...4-player...I know Ra....it's no Ra)

Santa brought me:

Buckets (Yay! "...a small chicken lead in your general direction")
Poker Chips ( an excellent set which we use in place of the money provided by several games....works especially well with Boomtown)

I've gotten:

Oltremare
Boomtown
Hansa
BuyWord
Jambo
Cloud 9
Goldbrau

I've also gotten a nice wad of cash (between Christmas and graduation gifts), some candy, and some clothes.

Not a bad Christmas as far as games go, and a great Christmas altogether! It's always good to see the family. Thank God for Christmas! Literally!

I sent Santa some stuff to leave for me... he was kind enough to comply.

Shockwave for Ogre
Necromancer
Tally Ho

so not too bad... even if the jolly old elf did need help with it.

I didn't get a board for christmas. I gave two games as gifts. Battlemasters to my nephew and The Hockey Game to my step brother who is a hockey freak.

Merry Christmas to all geeks here.
