Christmas 12 Days Card Game
A White Elephant Twist
It is coming upon that delightful holiday. It's time to gather up all of your friends and family and exchange gifts to show how much you appreciate each other. It's time for great food, bright cheer, and doing your utmost to win the holiday by getting the coolest stuff!
Okay, maybe we are missing the point of the season a little bit. But, you can do all of those things and still have a fantastic time with your nearest and dearest so long as you're playing the right game!
It's time for the 12 Days... and, by that, we mean this innovative card game. In this game, 2-5 players will spend about 20 minutes trying to bid the iconic presents from the classic Christmas carol in order to earn the most points. You'll start by shuffling the 80 Gift cards and putting the Holiday cards in the center, face-up, from the 1st day through the 12th. Deal everyone 12 Gift cards, which consist of a single Partridge card, two Dove cards, and so on up to the 12 Drummers. Each round, players will pass one Gift card to the player to their left and then play one of their Gift cards face-down. Whoever plays the lowest card value wins that round's Holiday card. But, if there are any matching numbers, they're thrown out, allowing higher cards to win. (Santa and Mrs. Santa always win, however you have to give the Holiday card to another player of your choice.) At the end of 12 rounds, add up the point value of your Holiday cards plus any scores you get for having the most of a certain Gift card type. Whoever has the most points has won Christmas!
Bidding for the Top Gift
You've heard the song for years. Now it's time to take what you've learned to win the best gifts of the season. 12 Days is bound to make for hours of fun!
