    Sorry, my gift came right before I left for PAX. But then, you know. PAX. Thank you for the series of UNLOCK games. This will keep the Cat fam busy for the holidays.

    Alright, I have sent my package into the wind, it should be in my santees hands in a week or two with any luck.
    Though as is generally the case I am sending from over the Atlantic, and the site I used didn't have an option to gift wrap or anything, so it might show up as a mystery parcel, hopefully you'll be able to work it out when an un-ordered package shows up!

    A mysterious Amazon package arrived! My wife asked if I ordered anything from Amazon. Checking the account, I did not see any recent orders that would be arriving.
    J8zXOW7l.jpg

    It might be from Santa! Unfortunately, I had just left for work, so many agonizing hours later, I get home and tear it open.

    jza3qitl.jpg
    Games!

    Betrayal at House on the Hill! I am slightly familiar with this one as I played it ~3 years ago at a friend's bachelor party get together. 6 players is awesome as well as then my family can play together!

    Onitama too! This I got to demo a long time ago and it has sat in my Amazon list for a long while. Been wanting more two player games I can play with my children 1 on 1, or with my wife once they're in bed. Kinda skipped over the classics, going more for interesting stuff like this and Hive and Summoner Wars rather than chess or checkers, etc.

    Fake edit: I see when I loaded the thread this is package 1 of 2! Wow!

    I also enjoy the theme, as Betrayal also has a werewolf on the front to go with your ho, ho, howl! 😀

    I always love the early strategy in Betrayal. Do we stick together while exploring in case the haunt fucks us? Or do we split up in case one of us starts killing all the rest? My strategy always seems to end up being stuck in the basement without a way back up, with a broken flashlight.

    Holy crap. Holy crap, people.
    After a lengthy day as the only person in the office, I came home to find a package waiting for me. Postal Inspector General Jonathan Starbuckle is on the case.
    FZ0WLsC.jpg?1
    He's had a very trying day; we discovered fleas on him over the weekend, so today was all about lots of laundry and vacuuming and other horrible noises, and we'd closed off all his favorite hiding spots. Still, he came right out when I brought the box over, so clearly he understands the importance of this duty.

    cCcAI1F.jpg?1
    Point Salad! I don't know that that is, but it has points! And salads! Surely these are the healthy kind of points, not the kind that clog your arteries with their empty pointeries.

    RATrTO0.jpg?1
    Clank! Legacy! And the AcqInc expansion! That's some good sleuthing, Santa!
    We discovered Clank! in a small game shop during the month and a half it took us to move to our current home, and it quickly became my fiancee's favorite game (because she plays every game like she'll lose a toe if she loses). We've since picked up two expansions, but I was hesitant to bring up the legacy game. Now I don't have to!

    Santa also sent me a note to let me know that the expansion was unwrapped, but there was a reason for it.
    That reason...
    32Ze1Q5.jpg?1
    You got it fuckin' signed!? How the... Why... so giving...
    Did I mention Patrick Rothfuss is my fiancee's favorite author? So much so that we went on the JoCo Cruise this year pretty much solely because of him? I don't think I mentioned that anywhere, ever, so how the hell did you know?

    Fuckin' A, Santa. You knocked this one out of the park. I'm serious. Thank you.

    Starbuck thanks you for his new bed, too.

    Awesome job Santa!

    I wonder if those signatures happened during the staff pin trade at PAXU. I don't remember seeing someone carrying that box, but there were multiple groups.

    HEHEHEHEHEHE I got tired of feeling like I was always on the receiving end of over generous Secret Santas, so JUST this year I get to be the Big Wallet. I also happened to be going to Unplugged where I know I could find at least 3 of the people in the set. So I got Pat's at his scheduled booth signing, and got Mike and Jerry at the Club PA meetup.

    I have returned from the mountains (sorry Santa, I was in Yosemite for a week!) and found packages that I didn't order for myself!

    29epek3ngjpu.jpg

    Following a brief inspection by the local authorities, I was approved to proceed with opening. Where I found:

    a2rj9ic1ijre.jpg

    Star Trek Adventures! And a tasty-looking snack to keep me nourished while I explore strange new worlds.

    I've been wanting this for quite some time, and the mission book is a very unexpected bonus. I can't wait to dive in! Thank you so much @Auralynx!

    I had a feeling you might be otherwise occupied - glad to see everything arrived undisturbed.

    Once I saw Star Trek on your list, the idea began to form; that you were thinking you might be running a sci-fi game at some point decided the matter.

    Special thanks to @Matev for the recommend on the mission book; I knew I should make sure you had some additional fodder and he was able to consult people through secret back-channels to get a recommendation on something to get a guy who usually runs games on top of the core book. Hopefully your group will have a good time with it!

    That extra handle is supposed to be midnight blue. Is it just the picture color? Or is it black?

    You mentioned doing more painting, and these handles are supposedly some of the best things available. You can use a soda/water bottle cap to screw on the handle, or a wine cork, and you can rotate or use the handle or grip to hold onto it and access any angle.

    I actually sent my gift a couple of days ago, but didn't get around to reporting it. Crikes Christ almighty, I remember now why when I get an international Santa, I usually just buy and have it shipped from local Amazon or something.

    Still, I had an Idea, and I hope it was a good idea! Time will tell. It might not arrive by Christmas, due to the general volume of shit flying around this time of year (reindeer incoming! Umbrellas up!) but when someone sees a big, well taped box on their doorstep, yeah, Gabe sends his regards.

    It looks black to me! But it still looks nice. I'll have to give it a try when i start up my next paint.

    Ooooh suprise package on my stoop. I'm not 100% sure when this showed up, but probably in the past couple days, the delivery person tucked it behind some of our planters.

    Behold! After seeing this game on Shut Up and Sit Down it's been on my shortlist to play and now I get the chance, and during the perfect time of year when I have the time to get it to the table. Thank you Santa!

    Man, it's been a great day for Secret Santa-ing! The local GW had it's Secret Santa gift exchange today where I got the first two volumes of The Siege of Terra, and then I get home to find an unexpected box on my stoop!

    Inside, a box of Infinity Pan-O support specialists, and a bag of locale specific hazelnut numnums. Amusingly, I probably drove past my Santa a few weeks ago when I was in the pacific northwest for work (I was taking 26 up from Bend to get to Portland). :biggrin:

    The Pan-O specialists were remarkably prescient, as my force has shown to be remarkably lacking in the skills those models supply, so thanks and extra thanks, @Bursar!
