    I got home and my sister in law is all 'you got a huge box' and I was very confused!
    So I went and checked it out.

    Santa apologizes? There's no need! I have a rad torch! I've made so many smores it's nuts.

    Oh man! I had forgotten this thing existed!
    UyyVVScl.jpg
    I love growing my own little plants and I also love tiny animals!

    We used to have a big fish tank but none of the kids were old enough or interested enough to help out, so it eventually went away.
    When I opened it up my 4 year old immediately went nuts and said we had to go get 'a little fella' to swim in the tank.
    So yeah we went over to petsmart aaaaaand hey everybody meet Sebastian

    QpEfP7vl.jpg

    Thanks so much santa! I don't know who you are but I (and the rest of the family) really enjoy all of the rad things!

    A humble package was waiting for me on my doorstep last night. Herein ye may find the chronicles of what treasures awaited...
    I don't know why my phone's taking such fuzzy images, but that's a puzzle for a different time.
    Were I not wracked by disease, I would have pithier captions for these. My apologies. Here's a box!

    Luckily, I opened them in the exactly correct order, because I didn't discover my Santa's name until the last one. Thanks, @DiannaoChong!
    I have to confess that I've been reading your name wrong all these years; I thought it was "Diana O'Chong" in some kind of Irish/Chinese mashup.

    Here's the whole shebang:

    A steamy new copy of Portal 2. Because sometimes, when Life gives you lemons you make lemonade, other times you build some kind of incendiary lemon launcher and go burn down Life's house.

    The message that came with the game was
    Dear Hey,

    How do you have this?

    Ker Blam,
    Me, [EmailAddress@Redacted.com]
    I'm not sure if there was a missing word there (asking "How do you not have this?"), or if Dyas was asking what version I had while sending me a copy on Steam.
    I played it on the 360, but it was on my brothers 360, which he took with him when he moved. I've since bought a 360, but haven't gotten back into it much.

    This is a really cool idea, and it's great that your kids are excited for fish (fish are awesome~). I'm still gonna pipe in and be "that guy" because the whole "betta + plants" thing has been around for a really long time and is one of these urban pet myths that stuck. I figure you've owned fish before and probably know that, but just wanted to note for anyone else who sees the setup and gets curious, those tanks still need regular maintenance and absolutely are not "set it and forget it!" kinda deals. Just know that beforehand if you plan on picking one up for yourself or someone else. <3

    Round 2. FIGHT!

    New box from Amazonia land that brought gifts from the distant and fearful place of DEATH MOUNTAIN.

    Do you want to check it out, mighty attack dog Gypsy?
    gypsy.jpg

    Too busy with a rawhide, I see.

    The running gag at my house is that I want Slave I for a gift from my kids. The other running gag is that I never get it.

    But behold it is:
    slave1.jpg

    My long nightmare is over! I shall never be in want of...

    Well then. Onto the next gift. Of course from Death Mountain will come something from the brain of a twisted individual whose name is emblazoned upon this very site.

    I've been looking at getting that for some time and thank you, O Secret Santa, for getting me it. My gaming group has played Betrayal for some time and this will really breathe new life into the game. But who was the one who sent these gifts?
    widowswalk2.jpg

    @darunia106 , thanks again for everything! Great gifts that will be enjoyed for a long long time.

    Edited to add:
    I couldn't find my picture of it which is why I didn't post it at first. He also generously gave me a $20 gift card to the Nintendo eShop. So many games to choose from.

    Hark, a package arrived this morning!
    5okhc5rmy4g5.jpg


    I wasn't expecting anything and didn't recognize the name, which could mean only one thing...SECRET SANTA!
    I had some helping hands as I opened up the box to inspect the contents.
    5o7zlw23tz0p.jpg


    First up I am greeted with some Kinder (yes!) Bueno (what?). I haven't had these before, but I am very happy to try them soon since they have hazelnut in them! And I'm sure my wife won't be too sad to taste them either...
    Beneath is the Pillars of Eternity: Lords of the Eastern Reach card game. Computer game + board game! I haven't played Pillars yet, but it definitely looks cool (I played a smattering of Baldur's Gate/Icewind Dale games of yore). This is apparently "a city building adventure card game for 1-4 players" and while I'm always happy to play new games, my wife isn't quite so interested in learning a new game all the time. So the 1 on that may come in very handy for my playing of it!

    The single page contained within was simply a picture of an avatar (which I immediately recognized as @The_Spaniard) and the words "Explanation soon..."
    So, THANK YOU!

    Hey! No frowning about presents! I am certainly not complaining. I feel like you've gotten me some really rad stuff already, so my Christmas is made. Hopefully it comes in around Jan 10th so I can not pay attention to the TV for a while, haha

    This is a rad gaming mouse! It's even got a little compartment with tiny weights in it. I'm about to head to my parents' house for the next few days but I will make sure to hook it up and give it a go when I return.

    Thanks again, mystery santa!

    Hooray! I'm glad you like it, @SniperGuy.

    The Wicked + The Divine (or WICDIV to us lazies) is one of my favorite comics. Talk to me for ten minutes, and I'll probably slip in a recommendation in there. Oh, and the fact that the covers of those volumes get progressively darker? I'm sure it's nothing. Certainly can't be foreshadowing.

    Yeah, for some reason Steam wouldn't let Proxy pass The Stanley Parable along. I sent you a friend request, SniperGuy, and when that goes through I'll gift it to you directly.

    Normally, you win Onitama either by capturing your opponent's main pawn or by getting your main pawn into the opponent's main pawn's starting spot. However, there's a secret, third winning scenario that isn't in the rulebook: when your main pawn captures their main pawn in its starting spot, so you effectively win in both ways at the same time. If this happens, your opponent is obligated to acknowledge that you're a cool and smart dude, and everyone has to give you high-fives all the time for the rest of the day. Make sure your opponents are aware of this before you begin play.

    Another fantastic gift, he has this all over the house and takes them with him to bath time, however we did hide the Play-Doh...for now... :)

    This is AMAZING!!!!, so many times I have seen this and almost purchased. I am an avid Final Fantasy fan and this was a delight to receive, my wife has actually looked through it more then I have cause she loves the art. Thanks a ton Santa!!!

    Great Christmas gifts, and obvious that thought went in to these, I truly appreciate it and again sorry for the delayed response. Also I misplaced the slip that had my Santa's name on it among the brouhaha the gifts cause at my homestead, if Santa would be so kind as to identify themselves, I would greatly appreciate it.

    'Twas exactly Christmas when there arose such a clatter.
    I sprang from my XBox to see what was the matter.

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    but a miniature sleigh and four tiny LEGO reindeer.


    bt8XJpYh.jpg

    With a little old driver, so whiney and gold,
    I knew in a moment it must be C-3P0 in a Santa suit.

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
    and filled all the gift bags, then turned with a jerk.


    And then I set about opening gifts and I don't know what happened to him after that. Lacking numbers, I opened them with reckless abandon.

    A blast from the past but one of Secret Santa's true favourites. Looks like a slight departure from your usual genres so hopefully new to you. (Pah)

    It is new to me indeed. I love puzzles and I'll get to it immediately tomorrow once it is socially acceptable to avoid family with my DS.

    Secret Santa's most favourite comic of all time is Hellboy and it has become a Christmas tradition to foist Big Red onto my Santee. (Lim)

    I've only ever seen the movies so this will be really fun to get into. I love the movies and the book is always better don't ya know.

    Secret Santa sees you like LEGO. Secret Santa sees you like fast cars. LEGO Fast Car! (Koo)

    Shit yeah.

    GcJSrVwh.jpg

    Secret Santa and his daughers owe you a special thanks for indirectly bringing The Princess and the Pony into their house last Christmas. John Allison is my favourite web comic dude and totes friends with Kate Beaton I believe. (Loo)

    OK, Santa, you are a person of class and unquestionable taste. John Allison is indeed the best web comic artist of all time. So it breaks my heart to tell you that I already have this book. Though you would have been hard pressed to find one of his I don't have...
    Not pictured, about 6 t-shirts and 4 art prints...
    FU07O3oh.jpg
    I e-mail John once and he responded to me. It was a legitimate thrill.
    Yes, I haven't gotten the newest one. Yet...

    Don't worry though, my sister is a big Kate Beaton fan and I'm going to borrow your idea and give her my old copy of The Case of the Team Spirit for her birthday and we'll get her converted to the cause.

    What a tremendous haul! Thank you very much, Santa!

    o0d3KWzh.jpg

    Now, here is the trick: I don't know who you are. I tried googling Lim Koo Loo Pah with nosuccess. Without regular access to the forum reverse stalking is getting me nowhere. I tried looking back through Hypatia's flickr stream for Hellboy (it being a tradition) but I could only find TheOtherHoseman getting in in 2011 and 2010 from Kendrik and Arikado. Kendrik gifted someone else (plus I didn't get another copy of Old Man's War ;P) and Arikado isn't in it. I thought maybe KoopahTroopah, but he's from PA and my Santa knows how to spell favourite correctly. Sidenote: Santa also knows to capitalize LEGO. And it's not an anagram because nobody has near that may o's in their name.

    Is mystery! (and probably really obvious but I'm really full of Christmas cheer right now)


    Thank you, @Jam Warrior!!!

    I got Ghost Trick in this very secret santa many moons ago! It is indeed a fantastic game, do not delay in shoving into your game player's card hole.

    Lim Koo Loo Pah is "kooloo limpah" mixed up.

    So someone with fat elf syndrome.

    Interesting. Though I told Santa I had Majora's Mask on my DS I failed to also admit I haven't played it for more than an hour.

    It is my secret Zelda shame.

    The Christmas cheer is getting to me. Forgot I could just edit posts.

    So, uh...

    Merry Chistmas everyone! Thank you for running this every year, @Hypatia

    This is one of my favourite things to do in the year.

    Additional Edit: This LEGO car is a neat bit of kit. The thing is a convertible!

    I'm well into Hogswatch cheer now, heh.

    Wow! I should have known a man of such impeccable taste was a Tackleford man. That's an impressive collection, as far back as Blame the Sky. Though I believe I can one up you with a Look Brains and Everything.

    I think Brains came out before I stopped being a poor student. I'm pretty sure I'm missing a few others too.

    I am mad jelly of your Shelley. Maybe this will inspire me to finally commission him for something. He seems pretty busy right now though.

    Since I have your blessing, I might indeed exchange it for the new one.

    Thank you again!
