    So these actually came in a month earlier, I have been stuck working 60-70 ish hours a week since November, so little extra time. Sorry in delay of getting these out:

    Boxes have arrived, Kid wastes no time on seeing what might be inside:

    He is super excited, so is the rogue animal cracker underneath:

    Item #1

    He loves this, he has actually gotten really good at doing the matching now and we play a round of this every night before bed.

    Item#2
    5tnmiymbeclm.jpg

    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... :)

    Item#3
    zuve8177r7gs.jpg

    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.




    Glad you and your son enjoyed your gifts. I also have a 4 year old so it wasn't too hard to add extra gifts.

    Just for reference this is the other gift I got before:

    @initiatefailure dude thank you so much for the $20 eShop credit! I'm going to get child of light with it for sure and then maybe the new shantae if it's available.

    Edit: In fact I just bought child of light. Can't wait to dig into it.

    Tryanny! This game looks awesome. I'm a big fan of RPGs and had a blast playing BG back in the day, so I am excited to give this a whirl. I am installing it now. Thanks, Santa!



    I don't think my Santa ever claimed credit for sending me this awesome gift. I'm only 8 or so hours in, but I'm having a blast. I haven't enjoyed an RPG this much since Mass Effect, and that's saying a lot!

    I had not but this was great either way. I'm real excited to get started and since I gave civ 6 to my wife it gives me something to do. Can't wait to see what's in the box! Thanks for everything.

    So I received my gifts over the course of a week or so, but with some health issues that resulted in a total disc replacement surgery 10 days before Christmas, I was held up from digging into them (more drugged out for the few 5 days).

    So I decided to actually open them up with all my other gifts at the annual tearing of the paper day.

    (some images were left out due to quality, such as the opening of the gift bags. Boxes (all but one) were already opened and gifts placed under tree by in-laws.)

    First off, Prof. R.J. "Moony" Wigglesbutt Lupin Evanwhit wanted to let all know this was HIS stuff and had a sit in until we bribed him with treats.
    gzwtkd3tf90v.jpg

    Once that ordeal was done, in the first box I had received was Joking Hazard and Westworld! Joking Hazard will be an excellent addition to our monthly game night at the house and can't wait to sit down to watch the movie! I was actually going to watch it during my recovery, but I mostly watched the inside of my eyelids.
    cyk1327yr3wv.jpg

    Next was something all geeks love, legos! And what an appropriate piece for the time of year, an X-Wing Fighter! Now it's time to build another shelf in the office for new toys!
    395494gusunt.jpg

    So that left the last gift I received. This was Moony's queue to hop on in and help me open it up it seems. TBH, I think he was getting impatient to tear something up....

    Which gave me my Hufflepuff Banner! My wife may of rolled her eyes at this, but if she can have Gryffindork stuff, I can have my Hufflepuff!

    Looking down at the box, what did I see?

    Soooooo... There's actually two more boxes. I don't know why just that one book shipped separately. One of the two shipped out but the other is an out of stock item currently so I'll probably have to message you when I hear about that.

    @Custom Special I wanted to post this a little earlier, but work and holidays have been especially hectic. I'm doing it now though, so deal with it!

    Kinder Bueno is one of my favorite candies in the whole world (I actually think I like the chocolate Happy Hippo's more at this point though), and I usually smuggle a couple boxes back to the US with me whenever I visit family in Europe. I know girls love candy, and since you live with a couple of special ladies, I decided to share my last 3 Kinder Bueno's with you. I count you among them, because living with that many girls in the house has probably kinda turned you into a bit of one too. 8-)

    Now since you are an enormous board game geek I had initially ordered a different board game for you, before inspiration struck and I quickly canceled my first order. Considering you also had Pillars of Eternity wishlisted on Steam, I decided that something that encompasses both digital and physical, marrying your love of board and videogames, into one overarching theme would be more appropriate. I quickly jumped on Steam and bought Pillars and the expansion pack (look for my name in the credits :P ), saving it in my inventory for a later delivery, while reaching out to some of my old co-workers at Obsidian. I threw cash at one of them, and they were able to procure a Deluxe Edition of the Pillars of Eternity: Lords of the Eastern Reach board game (Man I remember spending weeks working on the KS redemption portal for that one) for you. It was originally my intent to get the box signed by everyone that had worked on it, unfortunately with the holiday season and all there weren't enough folks left in the office for it to be feasible. Sorry dude.

    So, your homework at this point is to play the Pillars PC game, and truly get to know and understand the universe and its lore. Then take that understanding to the board game, so that you may truly appreciate it.

    P.S. The antidote for the slow acting poison I slipped into the candy should have come by now. Let me know if it arrived alright.

    So GiftGet3_zps523eefea.gif PART 2!!!!!!

    Holy crap you guys. There was a box! It was big and heavy. There was no picture of it, because it was claimed by the rabbits after the fact.

    So I opened up the unpictured box and there was no bags of air (much to my daughters disappointment). There was a mountain of games that greeted me!

    So we haven't played them yet. Apparently everyone that was visiting was quite overwhelmed with learning new games. Ticket to ride was overly complicated.
    Still though, they all look super fun and way amazing and I can't wait for my wife to get frustrated with me as I try to teach her a game I'm currently trying to learn! :biggrin:
