I only received one gaming item for Christmas this year, not counting the GOTY Edition of Borderlands 2.
It was this:
The Gaean Reach
It's by Robin Laws, and uses GUMSHOE, which I've only read about, not read.
It was a good choice of a gift - I like Jack Vance, I had no idea this game even existed, and I wouldn't have picked it up for myself. Yet at the same time I'm totally into reading it through even if I won't get to play it. I'm not even familiar with those Vance stories in particular, so now I have a double set of things to look into.
This is a great upside of having a close family member who games. I got him the Dungeon Dozen hardback and one of the D&D 5e adventures. The second was on his wish list, but I knew he didn't know the first was out there.
