Santa’s Sleigh Ride up on Kickstarter Now
It’s Christmas in July in June. (makes me want to watch that one episode of Ed, Edd, and Eddy) In Santa’s Sleigh, you must deliver the correct amount of gifts to the cities around the world. This is in an alternate universe where the world has several Santas all racing around the world on Christmas Eve. The first one to get back to the North Pole is the winner.
The basic game consists of:
* 46 Gift Cards
* 17 Action Cards
* 6 Player Pawns
* 1 Game Board
* 1 Six-sided Die
* 1 Instruction Manual
Each turn, you draw a card, getting either a Gift card or an Action card. If you have enough gifts to deliver to the city you’re sitting on, discard those Gifts and roll the die and move forward that many cities. Action cards have a variety of effects on them, so the “straightforward” parts of the games can be altered up a bit. The game is very family-friendly, recommended for ages 5 and up.
The campaign’s not far into their funding, however, they do have 43 days left to go, so plenty of time to make it there. Delivery is expected in December (seems fitting).
