Get the 10 locations inside and outside of your house ‘decked,’ and the house cleaned up by the time the clock strikes Midnight on December 25th. Play as a team against the game. To start players will select one of six characters and place the Clock Token on Dec 23rd slot. On their turn, each player rolls five dice, and collects the associated ornament pieces and cheer/distraction cards. They perform up to 4 actions, and can repeat the same action multiple times or choose a combination of different actions. At the end of their turn, players advance the Clock Token one space. Choose your actions carefully because time passes quickly and supplies are limited. There are many distractions keeping the task from getting done. The magic of Christmas is in your hands.

Summary: “Lead a unique, asymmetric hero and their army to be the ultimate victor. Players choose from various actions, such as building monuments, hunting monsters, ravaging the lands, gathering armies and artifacts. Gods grant you blessings that will heavily impact the game and create a unique combo for each player. On top of all that, special runes play a significant role in leveling up your armies or earning other bonuses, including control of deadly monsters. While the game is a spiritual successor to Lords of Hellas and implements a lot of core gameplay aspects, there are a lot of new mechanics and twists, so prepare yourself for a fresh, new thematic experience. Multiple victory conditions keep players at the edge of their seats until the end of the game, making room for some stunning, carefully planned last-minute reversals.”
