Some nice notes of realism creep in as players race to finish their Christmas shopping. Traffic jams can set you back, and you can lose a turn waiting in line at the post office. The play is perfunctory, though, and the draw cards are not too jolly: "Take any two gifts from the player on your right. If he has no gifts, tough luck, Charlie" ($10).
