What memories are your fonest in terms of receiving and playing games on Christmas? My favorite Christmas in game terms had to be the year I received both Panzerblitz and France 1940 - I vaguely believe that year also saw Origins of WW II come into the house that same Christmas. Other years would see Fortress America and Battle Cry (I was maybe 8). I also need to add in when Katie got me a new version by L2 of Russian Campaign after I came back from Iraq in 2003 - how time flies. Or when my ex got my SSI's Kursk PC game and we had to drive to Williamsport, PA to get the proper disk drive for it! At Christmas we often play a cuthroat version of Uno Smith style (usually blood on the table and floor in the process) or five state rummy, a kids educational game we have played since my boys were very little.
What I since came to the conclusion of is how important our games are to us. It mattered to me sitting in a comfy chair of lying on the living room floor gazing upon the map or punching out counters. I would also need to include the game Rich Uncle, electric football and table top hockey as additional Christmas but non-wargaming games.
How about you?
