We’re 12 days from November. I know a lot of people think it’s a bit early to think about the December holidays, but considering the time it takes to make something like a game, now’s the perfect time to be talking about getting together at the holidays, maybe getting some high-octane egg nog and getting hammered while playing a game. And that’s just what you can do with Pull Santa’s Beard, a new party card game up on Kickstarter.
In Pull Santa’s Beard, the object is to collect as many Nice cards as you can when the deck runs out. Or conversely, to have the most Nice cards when everyone wakes back up from passing out. Yes, drinking of alcohol is a pretty big part of the game. The game consists of the Pull Santa’s Beard (PSB) deck and the Santa’s Beard deck. On your turn, you’ll draw a card from the PSB deck, which will either tell you you’re Naughty or Nice. Nice cards have people give you compliments or let you eat cookies. Naughty cards have you or someone else Pull Santa’s Beard (aka, draw from the Santa’s Beard deck), which will give you new rules for the game that you must follow, which generally involves imbibing of alcohol.
The Kickstarter campaign’s up and running now and is set to go for another 28 days.
