Based on the film that has become a holiday classic, this brand new family-oriented board game from Wizkids challenges the players’ knowledge of the iconic movie, A Christmas Story. As players navigate the board, they will be completing fun activities such as trivia, naughty or nice, the f— word, and all I want for Christmas.

The set comes in a box which is really sturdy. It is so well constructed and everything inside is in place. The game board that folds at the center is good sized and attractively printed.

Players get to choose one of four high quality 3D miniatures (Ralphie, Randy, Flick, Old Man) to be used as playing pieces. They are intricately detailed to make them a great addition to anyone’s set of collectibles. The game also includes a die and 60 standard quality game cards.

The contents are generally impressive, except for the rulebook which turns out to be the downfall of this potentially flawless game. The game should be really fun, but the directions on how to play seem somewhat confusing.

They are just not written very well that some of the sequence of play is difficult to follow. However, after reading the instructions with great care, things become a bit clearer, at least.

This game is full of humorous social activities and engaging Christmas Story trivia, which keeps the game exciting and fresh every time you play. It allows the players to relive the hilarity of the movie as they move from scene to scene on the board full of movie scenes and quotes.

It would be a good idea to at least familiarize yourself with the movie before playing the game. Otherwise, you wouldn’t get very far in answering even the simplest question. The game plays with 2-4, but it’s probably a lot better with all 4 players. More players will add more competition to the game which is practically lacking in a 2 player game.
