    Christmas Bump Add 2 a game for 2 players

    Need: 2 dice and 8 counters per player each player uses a different color

    To Play: Players take turns to roll the 2 dice and add the numbers together. Then

    they cover this number with one of their counters, covering the large number. If

    another player has covered that number, they can bump that counter off and put

    one of their own counters on it. If that number is covered by one of the players

    own counters, they can add another counter on top and then they have won that

    space. You can only bump when there is only one counter on the number. The

    winner of the game is the first player to use all 8 of their counters.

    Grab a Gift a game for 2-4 players

    Need: counters, 2 dice

    Players take turns to roll the 2 dice, and find the total or the

    difference of these 2 numbers. They then place a counter

    over this number on the board. For example, if a player

    throws 2 and 6 the player could cover 4 (6-2) or 8 (2+6).

    Play continues until one of the gifts is surrounded with a

    counter on each of the spaces around it. The player who

    places the last counter to grab this gift is the winner.

    35 a game for 2-4 players

    Each player puts a counter on the Start. Players take turns to roll 2 dice

    and add the numbers together. If the total is an odd number the player

    moves to the next odd number. If the total is an even number the player moves to the next even number.
