About the game:
Filled to his grin with more spirit than ever, Jack had a plan to spread spooky cheer by delivering handmade toys to Christmas Town! But hijinks topped the list for his fellow Halloween Town helpers, and before too long, Jack, Sally, Zero, the Mayor, and Lock, Shock & Barrel’s spirited assembling gets out of hand, turning their gift-making into Merry Madness!
Act fast to help make Christmas out of the mayhem and gather all the flying Zombie Ducks, Vampire Teddys, and more into Sandy Claws’ Christmas Bag. Roll the dice, fling the toys, and be the first with three Ghoulish Gift Scoring Tokens to win a ride in Sandy’s sleigh to Christmas Town!
- Set up and gameplay are easy – in the first variation, place Sandy Claws’ Christmas bag board in the center and each player takes three dice each and a character player board with evenly-distributed and random items placed on top. Gameplay starts and players roll the dice, taking actions based on the roll
- Once your board is empty, shout “This is Halloween!” to score the round – first player to earn 3 points wins.
- In another variation, you must roll the dice and gather Christmas toys from other player boards and Sandy Claws’ Christmas bag to complete sets of toys – each complete set of supplies earns you a point – first player to earn 3 points wins.
