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

While I absolutely love the movie - this game sucked big time. If you buy it for just the novelty of it great. If you want to play the game don't bother.Published on June 7, 2012 by Brenda Benoit
