My four year old daughter pulled this out of a closet to play. It was the first time I had seen it and was pleasantly suprised by its colorful presentation of the charecters in a Christmas atmosphere. The game play is fairly easy to understand, even for a 4 year old. Collect candy canes and "gifts" by landing on certain squares, then the first player to give three gifts to other players and return to the home square wins.

However I noticed something that hit me like a ton of bricks which is why I gave it three stars. The game manufacturer totally caved into "political "correctness which always drives me nuts. If any one has actually seen the show, the whole point is to explain to Charlie Brown that the real meaning of Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ. Period. They all shout out "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown"! However squares you land are called "Happy Holidays" and the cards you draw from say "Seasons Greeting". NOWHERE in the game does it say "Merry Christmas". This lack of willingness to say "Merry Christmas" because they are too afraid they might "offend" someone is completely contrary to the message of the show. So I finished the game, but it didn't leave me feeling great about playing it.

This isn't just any Christmas board game. It is based on the beloved classic A Charlie Brown Christmas, which many good people watch religiously every December, along with other classics like It's a Wonderful Life and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (which would probably make an awesome board game!). Does this game measure up to its classic inspiration or is it merely a cheap attempt to cash in on Snoopy's popularity?

The game follows a standard roll and move format, except you have a spinner with numbers from one to five instead of a six-sided die. The board has spaces with candy canes where players collect candy canes. Other spots have "Happy Holidays" written on them where players collect a card from the deck. The cards have a variety of actions, like "lose a turn," "spin again," "move three spaces," "collect a candy cane," "lose a candy cane," and "give a present to someone." The way to win the game is to collect three candy canes and give away three presents to other players and return to the starting point. If the player collects extra candy canes, he or she can trade in three candy canes to give a present to someone.

The game is fairly easy to learn. Both my two-year old and four-year old have played several times. And it is fun, having the spirit of giving and receiving. The board and components are nicely decorated with Schulz's art. The game doesn't take too long. Normally Jacob the four-year old will finish; Lucy doesn't quite make it to the end every time. I enjoy playing a game with them and the children's enjoyment makes me happy. I'd recommend this to any family.

This is a very cute game for the kids. They love it and it is easy enough to play. Only thing is they shouldn't worry about political correctness or offending anyone and put In the Merry Christmas!!!

Game is marked for 5 years old and older and I completely agree that it would be perfect for the 5-12 year old group. Game does have quite a few rules so an adult would need to play with children but because of the nature of the game it does not hold older kids or adults attention for very long.
