It’s chaos in the North Pole. The head elf is retiring and Santa needs a new head elf to keep the presents flowing to the kids. Who will it be?

Present Pile-Up is a family card game where each player tries to prove they have what it takes to be the head elf by having their team build and deliver 10 presents in the quickest.

Present Pile-up is being offered as a free Christmas gift for all of my readers. You can download all the cards and other parts needed. I think there are some great stories that kids can write based on this North Pole competition. I’d love to see some of these stories.

I also am trying to make this game accessible for families. That means kids that are too young to read can play because I’ve put symbols along with the text on the cards. This is explained more in the instructions.

Download the cards below. You will need to print the cards and cut them out. Then you’ll need to put these cut out card in sleeves with a playing card (for support).

The links take you to some on Amazon, though you can just as easily get them at a local store.
