For the past several years my family and friends have hosted a Christmas game. We usually design our own rules and the scenarios usually feature Santa having to defend the North Pole against the ravages of the wily Rat King.

This year I decided to actually write up the rules -- the first play of the game went well and I should have an AAR up in the next week or so -- holidays and the new baby willing!

The full writeup and link to the rules is on my blog:

Link to the rules:

And here's the fluff:
The Rat King has discovered one of Santa's Pre-positioned Gift Depots and has sent his minions to steal the presents and ruin Christmas! Only a nearby village of friendly snow people can stop him. Get the pile of presents back to your base as quickly as possible. Running them back is safer (unless you get hit by a snowball!) and throwing them is quicker but more difficult. Throw snowballs at your opponent to force them to drop any presents they are carrying and send them back to base to warm up!

Hopefully some of you will enjoy it!
