We’ve just updated The Night Before Christmas into our current format. Written by Tracy Bose and initially published in 2004, we haven’t significantly updated the game in over a decade and it needed a reformat.
So while we haven’t changed the plots or characters, we’ve made numerous changes:
- The characters are now in the 8-page booklet format, which includes their Secret, Clue and abilities—along with the rules and the cast list.
- The abilities are now all in the latest format.
- Items are now all illustrated.
- We gave the text a light edit to make sure it flows.
- We caught a couple of minor errors still there after 17 years!
- We improved how the free extra characters are integrated into the game by linking them to more plots and characters.
But besides that, it’s the same 1948 game set at the Evington-Browne’s Christmas Eve cocktail party, held in their hunting lodge in the mountains north of Boston. A valet has died – is it murder? (What do you think?)
