Default Found Under Tree

For us this year it included the Talisman upgrade pack (to update our Black Industries 4e to the new Fantasy Flight Games version), Munchkin 2: Unnatural Axe, and Terry Pratchett's latest novel, Nation. The Mongoose version of Traders and Gunboats never quite got into wrapping paper, but it was part of the XMas haul, too.

Thanks to the Talisman pack and the Munchkin pack, the two new controllers for the Wii that were under the tree (so we can play 4-way now) are still in their vacuum-formed plastic. I think they'll come out tomorrow, though.

What fun stuff have others come by?

Five years old--that's definitely the time to take Santa to the cleaners. For me that was my Major Matt Mason year. Santa came up with a moon walker, moon buggy, and a base with a satellite dish. My old G.I. Joe went over the wall to fight for the Lunarians, but Mason's technology won the day!

Each of my girls got their first Unix box for their fifth Christmas (old HP 700 series workstations.) Oneko was the order of the day, followed by much MUDding. A few years ago I got them Mac G3 B&Ws. "Oh boy! iTunes!" they said. Last year they got upgraded to Mac Minis. "Does this mean we can run...Quartz Composer?" asked one.

This year's been relatively modest for them. Most of the gaming stuff was family gifts since we all play together as well as with friends. They've finally opened up the Wiimotes and they're testing them with Wii Ski (a favorite with them and their friends) now.

Tomorrow we head off for Grandma's house, where another round of XMas will happen.

LOL!

Oh Yeah! My sister & brother-in-law went old school and got that for my kids this year (among a bunch of other things). I don't think any gift (save a couple on the Wii) were as much enjoyed!

The 4yo got a personal trampoline (1m diam)...

Me, I got a half-pound summer sausage, a bag of sweet-hot beef jerky, Bully Scholarship Edition (Wii), Wii Music, Quiddler and Five Crowns card games, Bab5 season 1.

Money to pay bills.

A teddy bear from a complete stranger; We went and saw Dale in the hospital today, and on the way in, were accosted by Santa and each given a teddy bear; Dale was given a bear and a pocket radio.

Dale of course, got Chemo-therapy for Christmas, as well.
