Players pick a coloured playing piece and take four red presents from the box. Using the numbers on the dice advance around the board paying attention to the instructions printed on any square that you land on.
If you land on a ‘Give a Gift’ square you must throw the dice to decide ‘Naughty or Nice’. If you throw a 1, 2 or 3 this means ‘Naughty’ so you don’t give a gift. If you throw a 4, 5 or 6 this means ‘Nice’ so you give a gift (place one of your presents back in the box). You do not need an exact number to land on the last square but you must have a gift to give when you arrive, if not you must return to the start and collect another four presents from the box. If you land on a ‘Get a Gift’ square you can either take a gift from the box or nominate another player to give you one of their gifts.
The youngest player starts.
