A hilarious family Christmas non murder mystery party game set in the North Pole! A fun Christmas-spirited (non-murder) mystery party for 8-16+ guests, ages 12 and up due to difficulty. There are multiple kit sizes, covering up to 64 players by using expandable teams. See the breakdown of kits below.

If you have done the T'was the Night Before Christmas game, this game will be too similar - as this is the 'non-murder' version of the T'was the Night 'murder' game.

Select the party ready option above, and our staff will fold and slip the clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards.  If you do not select this option, you will have some assembly required with your kit.

 Christmas Mystery Party Game Synopsis

It's time for the annual pre-Christmas meeting at Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus's home at the North Pole. Amid the hustle and bustle, the Christmas workers must halt in their tracks to gather and discuss the status of the big toy delivery on Christmas Eve.

Hopefully, everyone will attend the meeting with reports of surpassed goals and deadlines met with ease. There's not a minute to spare since a record number of kids are on the nice list this year.

Rumor has it the sleigh's navigation system is in dire need of repair, Rudy has lost his nose cover, the nice and naughty list needs to be verified, and someone is trying to sabotage the delivery through multiple avenues. We are swimming in dangerous times at the North Pole, as any minor problem could trigger a domino effect that ends with Christmas being canceled.

This is where your story begins.

Kit Sizes for the Rudy Reindeer Game

  • Kit A: 16 player kit - main game characters
  • Kit B: 24 player kit - main game and expansion pack characters
  • Kit C: 32 total: 24 unique players plus 8 expandable team players (3 bag stuffers, 3 penguin family, 2 prospectors)
  • Kit D: 48 total: 24 unique players plus 24 expandable team players (8 bag stuffers, 8 penguin family, 8 prospectors)
  • Kit E: 64 total: 24 unique players plus 40 expandable team players (14 bag stuffers, 13 penguin family, 13 prospectors)

Roles in the game are as follows: 

  • 16 unique main game players
  • Up to 20 duplicate 'Gab the Elf's Bag Stuffing Crew' (from the main game)
  • 8 unique players from expansion pack #1
  • Up to 20 duplicate members of Pongo the Penguin's family (from expansion pack #1)
  • Up to 20 duplicate arctic prospectors (from expansion pack #1)

When you use an expandable team, you will assign each team member to the lead character on the character list. For example, invite 16 members to play the role of Gab the Elf. When the guests arrive, they are to assemble into a team and select a lead character. One player will actually play the role during the game and the rest of the members will play along as Gab the Elf's crew. The expandable players will receive duplicate materials to their team during the game. They will mingle about and play just like everybody else, but they will not have unique clues to their character, but rather to their team leader. These roles are great to expand the guest list while giving everybody a role in the game. Assign the most outgoing players to the unique players and the more shy/reserved guests to the expandable players.
