I got the Seasons expansion. A lovely well made expansion with fantastic colour on the tiles and boards all boxed in super quality. Thank you Santa.
Oooo, look at all the meeples

Many thanks to "our" secret Santa... there were gifts for all family members!! Lot of effort was put into preparing this, for instance gifts were nicely and individually wrapped and labeled with our names! Very impressed and pleased with this avalanche of presents! In the pic below you can see a game for the kid, some sweets for mom (half eaten now, there was more!) and meeple cufflinks for dad's shirt. Also a nice card with a Spiel 17 tile inside. Thank you so much x 3!

Awesome work everyone! I've really enjoyed seeing the photos of the wonderful gifts that people received.

Now, since I was the one who told everyone who to send their parcels to, there wasn't a lot of secrecy surrounding the identity of my Santa but I won't share it here in case it influences anyone else's idea of who their Santa might be.

I do want to share the following photos though:


(yes the children had already opened a lot of presents, and yes I was wearing my Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle pyjamas, but this was the main present I was looking forward to opening this year...)


(...and I certainly wasn't disappointed!)


(Sweets, Fortune Tellers expansion, and the Santa Claus expansion which is classic Carc version of W/E Gingerbread Man expansion :(y) :(y) :(y))

Many thanks to my Secret Santa, it was a lovely gift! :) :(y)

It took me 30 seconds to identify your Secret Santa's identity :P

Santa left me his Red Pants or, at least, a Dwarf with red pants!!

After spending an eternity open several chocolate wrappers, I discovered that I had been given a hand-draw 6 tile expansion called 'The Dwarf with the Red Pants'. I thought that it was brilliant, in fact, I still do.

I need to speak to Sinscerly about the rules, as they are not very clear and are still in 'development' but, none the less, this was an exceptional present and I am delighted with it. Good 'ol Santa!!

Lots of great presents!

(And great pyjamas Dan)

Very apt that you should get such a fan expansion thesteveallen given all the hard work you're doing testing expansions!  Those hand drawn tiles are really something special!

Well done CarcC!

Well I got also a gift from my not so secret santa ;)
Very cute package, it arrived somewhere in the beginning of this month, see picture below  ^-^.

Well I couldn't wait to open it, so I had a good plan and laid my gift under the Christmas tree of my girlfriend.
So I opened it three days ago and I found a super nice copy of the The Big Black Pig Escape.
As I don't understand the rules yet, but they look awesome, I am certainly gonna try it out.

What a mystery! Who could that be from? ???

It looks like an awesome gift regardless of who sent it to you. I hope you have lots of fun playing it and wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! :(y)

##where did the image go to?

Yes indeed Steve I need to work on the rules, as I thought they were clear for me. Sadly enough I thought it would be clear for others to when I wrote the rules down on paper. So that would need some time  :).

Also I'm gonna try to digitize my creations if I would succeed in that, as I'm not that good with Photoshop.
I'm happy that you liked them.

Well I couldn't find any other cardboard  :-[, sorry if you thought you would get chocolate  >:D

@Danisforty I don't know, some small country I think. Yes indeed it is an awesome gift. Happy New Year  O0

Sorry for not having some fancy pijamas on the picture background, but I just received my Secret Santa:

Handcrafted and handy since my cheese tables need retirement (they almost didn't make to the Christmas table this year).
