New Old Game For Christmas: Santa's Special Delivery

I found this browsing Amazon one day and wanted it, but really didn't want to lay out 130 bones for it (uh... that's 130 US Dollars for our friends over seas).



My wife found one for sale on e-bay and picked it up for me... came out to about 25 dollars. The game was released in 1990, but it has a certain kind of old classic look and charm to it. The game was 'used' and has a little wear but for me it just added to its appeal. From another family to our family where it will remain as a part of our Christmas seasons to come.

It's a simple enough game... each Santa has four presents that he must go out and 'deliver' before returning 'home'. We've already played with our 3 year old and he seems to be 'getting it'. Now, I have to kinda 'get it out of his head' and put it away for a while so that we aren't all burnt out on it before the Christmas season really gets underway.

There were two available when we bought this one... hopefully the other one is still there.
I heavily influenced my wife to chose the 'buy it now' option so there was no chance of me losing the game in some last minute 'bidding shoot-out'.

That was a very wise thing to do.

I think I have played this before when I was younger.. Im gonna ask my parents if we still have it! It may have been my best friends Erica's though..because she lived right down the street from me. That does bring back some good memories though!
