    In case anyone needs some help finding recommendations, Quantic Foundry's engine is great: https://apps.quanticfoundry.com/recommendations/tabletop/boardgame/

    I'm also happy to help research suggestions, but I know there's a ton of good resources out there for that.

    Also I realize looking at my letter to santa that I didn't really mention what games I've been playing lately - I have been working to better log my plays though, so you can see a fair amount of what I've played over the last three months here: https://boardgamegeek.com/plays/bygame/user/Nullzone/subtype/All/start/2018-08-01/end/2018-10-31

    I will say, whoever got me, give it a day or two before you try to use the BGG list - that needs some updating, though the trends hold.

    E: Updated, realized I'd misplaced Ladies & Gentlemen, wife found Ladies & Gentlemen, all right in the world.

    Oh right, I should follow up on mine and also make sure it's actually good now. I did do a big overhaul on my wishlist, but then there was a math trade where I actually got a couple of things from it. >_<

    [Update]
    I was a good boy when I looked it over Saturday night. Don't seem to be any errors~

    Just coming in to say I didn't think I could participate this year, and I see I missed the deadline anyway. I hope to participate next time.

    It's a fun area control game that's very light. No big combat and you never get attached to your race or area, because you'll just capture it later.

    Mystery Amazon package in the mailbox. Not sure if from G&T or CF SS. Will post image later when I get home.

    My goodness, a mystery package arrived. What praytell was in it? A very delicious hot sauce, as pictured below (I'd take a photo but my house is damn dark right now). Also a cryptic note that Santa is watching...Always watching. I don't know about that but they have DAMN good timing. I got paid today and was just getting ready to put an order in because I just ran out. So my hat is off to you Santa.

    Got up this morning to find a package that wasn't there when I got home last night sitting in my mail pile. Clearly some pawn of the Ruinous Powers had infiltrated my home in pursuit of inquiries most foul!

    9DxtKmH.gif

    p5mr6whjnix0.jpg

    This "Xan'ta" being seems to have attempted to disguise its agents as some sort of Yuletide band of merry-makers, but been thwarted by agents of Grimnir in search of Ur-gold. Also pictured are some foul relics of the men that once walked these ill-omened halls. They now wander in thrall to the Master of the Black Pyramid, afoot on some unknowable errand in search of peace... or souls to join their damned march.

    And yes, Santa, the Eyes of the Nine in particular were the one I wanted - note my avatar / the box's contents! This should be in no way construed as some manner of confusing gambit to expose others to the whims of Tzeentch, the Architect of Fate. Nosiree. As to the Dwarves, the newer set's not out yet - was trying to leave a window, suggestion-wise, in case you dragged your feet a bit like I have been. These doughty warriors will probably annoy the hell out of my buddy's Orks at least! Thanks a ton!

    Awesome, glad I got you the right ones. The Elves were an easy purchase, but I wasn't sure about the Dwarves. Happy to hear you didn't have them already.

    Here's to you and yours having a happy holiday season!

    Didn't even hear the package get dropped off yesterday, so this was a pleasant surprise when I opened my door!

    This looks really good! Now I have to decide whether to finish Well of Ascension now and read this next, or put that on hold and read this first. Thank you Santa for the book and the dilemma!

    I might be the only person in this affected by it, but just a heads up that Canada Post is definitely still doing rotating strikes and it'll probably impact any delivery times here. This is as much a "try not to go for something with a tight deadline" warning as it is an "If it takes longer than you're expecting for something to arrive, don't start to worry immediately" reassurance.

    I got home tonight after a long drive (8 hours!) from visiting family out of town, and see a package sitting at the doorstep...
    "Hmm..." I think, "I haven't ordered anything from amazon recently."

    It's addressed to me, so I open it...

    I also gift get! Sushi Go Party from my Mystery Santa! I'm super stoked. I've been meaning to get this damn game forever but there seems to be always something else higher on the list, but now I finally have it and I'm going to play it soon!

    My Santa has also said that I have one more package to look out for so once I have everything I'll post a big shot.

    Hark! A bludgeoning device!
    IMG_20181128_223332.jpg?width=473&height=630

    And a note?
    IMG_20181128_223347.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Why yes, I DO enjoy complex eurogames! Scythe, Ora et Labora, Low Lands, and Terra Mystica/Gaia Project are among some of my favorite games ever. But this is far too small to be something like that...what could be inside?

    IMG_20181129_131013.jpg?width=473&height=630

    Fascinating! It strikes me as something between Low Lands and Deep Sea Adventure. Keen to try it out! Thanks mystery Santa!

    (I have my suspicion as to who this is, but generally have a policy of not airing that knowledge, so as to respect the gifter's privacy)

    (I'm also not 100% certain this is CF santa as I'm also signed up for Secret Satans, but the inquiry about complex eurogames and lack of Satan driven thematics suggests this to be more likely)

    It seems my assumptions about which Santa my last gift came from were misguided? The package I just received suggests they were gifts from my Satan, rather than the CF crew.
