The box was way too big for Twisted Wizard, but Mom pulled the same "big box" trick on me last year when she got me a memory card for my video game system.
So I ripped open the package and pulled out my present. only this wasn't Twisted Wizard, either. It was a giant red wool sweater.

what does the underlined sentence mean? Especially I'd like to know the meaning and usage of the word "only"

    I read "only" as "except that." This is the second time the person has been fooled by his mother, who used a much larger box than the present required.
