Lumps, the Elf Coal Game Review/Giveaway (:

Beth at continuumgames has once again been kind to bring me another game to review. This time it was the Lumps, the Elf Coal Game. Yes Christmas themed. I thought oh cool. I love anything that has to do with this wonderful holiday. I am always one trying to get my fiance and my cousins to play games with me. Lol.

About the Game:

Getting coal in your stocking is now the best gift of the holidays!
The Lumps Legend: Children around the world have been so good over the past few years; lumps of coal have built up at the North Pole. Puzzled by what to do with the excess coal; Santa’s elves decided to create an exciting new game that uses lumps of coal of all shapes and sizes. The game is so much fun, good little boys and girls, for the first time ever, are excited to get lumps of coal in their stocking!
Lumps, the Elf Coal Game is the most addictive family dice game you’ll ever play! The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 points…a pair of 10s scores 10 points. What makes the game unique is that it has four different types of dice and there are few high numbers. On each turn you have to make decisions on which dice to keep and re-roll. Do you play it safe and hold a pair of 4s, or chance it and try for a high pair? The endless possibilities make Lumps exciting and addictive. Great stocking stuffer!
My Review:
I have to say at first I was like oh this is kind of like Yahtzee. I guess in a way I was right but this game is so much fun and you can even teach little kids how to play it. The fun thing about it is that you never know what numbers you are going to get. A few times I made the wrong choice but in the end it did not matter that I lost. What mattered to me is that I was having a fun time with my family. I love doing family activities and when I have children this will be a game we play on our family game night. I believe with the Christmas theme it brings out the Christmas spirit around that time of the year but I also believe that this can be a all year long game. Just because it is the theme of Christmas does not mean you cannot play it at other times. I cannot wait to play this game again. I totally think you should go and buy one right now at the low price of $7.99 + shipping at Continuum Games. Beth was kind enough to let one of my lucky readers win this game for themselves. Happy go entering. (:
