On the 12th Day of Christmas, Calliope Gave to Me…
December 14, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsDecember 14, 2016 - Calliope Games wants to celebrate gift giving and the spirit of Christmas with the new classic 12 Days card game, available just in time for the holidays!
Inspired by the iconic Christmas carol The Twelve Days of Christmas, 12 Days (designed by James Ernest and Mike Selinker, and beautifully illustrated by Echo Chernik) is a perfect holiday themed get-together game that is easy to learn and always fun to play.
In 12 Days, (MSRP $12 for 3-5 players ages 8 and up), players bid for the 12 days of Christmas with each of the gifts "my true love gave to me" - twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping, ten lords a-leaping, all the way down to a single partridge in a pear tree. The number of the gift indicates how many of each card is in the deck; there are five golden rings, four calling birds, and so on. The player bidding with the rarest, lowest-valued gift wins that day's points, and the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
"Gorgeous art and elegant gameplay make 12 Days a true holiday classic," Ray Wehrs, president of Calliope Games, said. "All ages can play together. From grandparents to grandchildren, it's a great game for any gathering of family and friends."
