I thought it'd be fun to see what everyone got for the holidays, so I'll start (in no particular order):

Risk Legacy
Eclipse
Ghost Stories: Black Secret
Super Dungeon Explore
Elder Sign
Undermining
Sentinels of the Multiverse
Power Grid: The First Sparks (raincheck)
Stone Age: The Expansion (raincheck)

I also got the Lost: The Complete Collection Blu-ray set that comes with Senet if that counts.

I might have more to add tomorrow when I see my wife's family.

Santa was good to me! Or rather, my parents were very good to me. All but one of these came from them (the other from my wife). I've been having a rough time with unemployment and health problems and when I sent them ideas for games for Christmas, I never expected them to get them all. They are very generous folks and I can't thank them enough.

Edit to add: Troyes
Edit to add: Quarriors! Rise of the Demons

Christmas really isn't about the presents, and due to my wife losing her job, there isn't any money to spend on gifts. However......

Thanks to a gift from my Dad, I was able to pre-order Nations at War: White Star Rising – Operation Cobra,

Thanks to my last year's Secret Santa target, I now own Quarriors!, and

Thanks to my best friend, I have a copy of Evo on the way from South Korea, of all places.

So I ended up getting way more than I expected, but truth be told, it really is the thought that counts. And the thoughts behind these gifts, are what is making this a much better Christmas than I thought I was going to have.

My wonderful girlfriend bought me Troyes and Stone Age, also Hive: The Mosquito and Hive: The Ladybug. I bought her Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age, and Santa left Blue Moon City and Mr. Jack. It's going to be a great time!

Merry Christmas to all!

Last night over dinner, I thought I saw a shadow across the room, I paid no more attention until this morning when I saw a package for myself next to the Christmas tree. When he opened it was Ninjato. Sneaky Santa... ninja

Dungeon Raiders
Catacombs: Cavern of Soloth
Tri-Ominos
Pictureka! Card Game

and a copy of Munchkin, which I already own and will exchange for something else.

All in all, not too bad, considering the economy.

I got a Velvet bag with a Yin-Yang symbol. I'll use it for monsters in Arkham Horror or something. My 5 year old also made me a bracelet at daycare. Nothing else, unless you count SS (Dungeon Lords).

However, I gave the kids Harry's Grand Slam Baseball Game, Old Men of the Forest, Castle Panic: The Wizard's Tower, Battlestations: Pirates of Trundlia, Heroica: Fortaan and D&D figures.
I also gave a friend's family in America Discworld: Ankh-Morpork.

I had to make sure that I ordered:

Poseidon's Kingdom
Prêt-à-Porter
&
Trajan (co-sponsored by Dad)


and Dad ordered:

1812: The Invasion of Canada


from the collection: Tonight I'm eyeballing Bargain Hunter and Gang of Four as games to tempt a card player into playing new and different things. We have a few other possibilities as well.
