📜 Number of Players:
We recommend our games be played individually, with a partner, or with up to 4 players. These games are fun for the whole family to play at home (and a chance for siblings to work together).
You can play with more players, however, we recommend printing out enough clues so that every player gets a clue to solve.
To set-up the game, you need nothing more than paper, the provided PDF documents, a printer or printing service, and a pair of scissors. (It is also fun if you have an Elf toy, but it is not necessary). We include directions and an answer key explaining exactly how to set-up the game and hide the clues. We also include 12 Printable Prize cards called "Christmas Coupons."
