Santa's Shortcuts - Christmas Eve Board Game

Santa's Shortcuts

My memories of Christmas Eve are ones of anxious anticipation. Suddenly we noticed the radio towers and the blinking red lights. That HAD to be Rudolph. We watched the weather reports with great interest. We were waiting, anxiously, for Santa and wondered what he would bring us. If you have little ones who anticipate Christmas morning like I once did, this is a fun game to play on Christmas Eve. Santa's Shortcuts, a boardgame from a 1963 publication from Oster, the originator of the Osterizer, is a fun game of the perils of 20th century travel via sleigh pulled by flying reindeer. Print out here and use buttons or coins as game pieces. Then send those little ones off to dreamland and Merry Christmas!
