If I answer my question correctly, they then ask the life lesson question.

The actual rules and game set up were far too complicated and we ended up playing our own way.

We never got through the direction to figure out what the heck we ere even supposed to do.

"A Christmas Story: The Board Game" provides a game board, a 36-card question deck (28 cards with 3 questions on each and an additional 8 "life lessons learned" cards), a 75-card game deck, 6 player tokens, and 6 scoring tokens. In the store where I purchased it for $29.99, it seemed like a good way to remember the excellent movie on which it is based. However, it turned out to be, without question, the biggest disappointment I have had in purchasing games in many, many years.

The best thing about this game is the big, cute picture of Ralphie on the box. Having loved the movie, it was irresistible not to buy this board game, and I feel victimized by a cute picture on a merchandising sham. This is not a game; it's a money maker for someone who could not have ever tested the game to see if it "works." Instead of providing fun, it provides frustration.

The instructions consist of a four-page booklet of the most indecipherable guidance I have ever encountered. Key information on how to proceed is not presented in a logical order. I disliked wading through unnecessarily long sentences of cutesy phrasing throughout the instructions. Example: "The cops and fire department need to come to pry the tongue from the lamp pole. The other kids can't wait around as Christmas loot is on the line." What are passages like that, padding to make the instructions longer?

The leg-lamp tokens provided to move around the board refuse to remain standing. We gave up on using those within the first few minutes of trying to play the game.

There seems to be no real objective to the game and no conventional way to begin it.

Verified Purchase
This game should be fun but the directions of how to play are so confusing, badly written and organized, and so complicated that it is difficult to teach others how to play. After explaining it you start to sound like Ralphie's Dad battling the furnace.

The game pieces and board are cute. The game looks better on the shelf as a collectors item than as an acutal playable game.

I bought this as a christmas gift for my boyfriend because this is one of his favorite movies of all times! We opened it on Christmas Day to play it and started to read the directions (which is in fact 4 pages) After reading the first page of directions I felt stupid because I wasn't understanding them at all. I looked online to read the reviews to see if maybe we were stupid by not understanding the rules for this game, but it turns out we aren't stupid, the creators of the game were! It seems they didn't even bother test out the rules to make sure they work. Overall, this was a huge disappointment and a waste of $30. Don't bother to purchase this game, enjoy the movie and the memories that you, your friends and family get from A Christmas Story.

I have wanted to purchase this game since last Christmas, but never got around to it. I recently won a gift certificate to a web-store, and decided to use some of it to get the game. I'm glad I didn't spend any money on it.

When I opened the box, I was impressed with the high quality game board and plastic leg lamp tokens. True, it is difficult to keep them standing, but they are nicely detailed. The graphics are nice and bright and the cards feel pretty durable. My joy was lost, however, when I began reading the instructions. It made no sense to me or my Girlfriend. We tried playing once with their rules, but it went nowhere. We quickly decided to ditch the instructions and come up with our own simplified version. So here is how we play:

First off, set aside the colored cardboard tokens. You won't be needing them.

Place the two decks of cards in the center of the game board within reach of all players. Make sure they are shuffled extremely well, or the game will be frustrating. Like the rules say, we let the youngest player go first.

Choose a colored leg lamp token and place it at the top of the board at the number 1 space. This is the space that looks like a Christmas light. The object will be to get around all 60 spaces first while answering questions along the way.

Pick a card from the Christmas ornament shaped deck. The number on the card will be the number of spaces moved if you answer a question correctly. The other player will pick a card for you from the question deck. If there is a picture of a child's toy on your ornament card (the tank, fire engine, decoder pin, etc) you will answer question 1. If there is an adult item (bowling ball, etc) read question 2. If a picture of a kid is on your card, read question 3.

This game is cited as being for ages 8 and up... All I can say is a group of honors high school students, honors college students, and adults with college and master's degrees had trouble with this game. We are huge fans of the movie the game is based upon, hence the purchase, but the game's creators have tried to incorporate too much and made the game near impossible to play, let alone score points and win. For visual value, the game looks great and created a lot of conversation. The leg lamp game pieces were problematic, as they tip easily - actually, maybe an 8 year old would not have been bothered by that...
