Christmas Express board Game

I have found the perfect family Christmas game for this year! Climb aboard the Christmas Express and join this jolly journey through a winter wonderland as you race to be the first to get to the North Pole. 

The aim of the game is to be the first player to travel along the train track from the Home Station to the North Pole Station. You'll have to avoid the Hustle Bustle, the Reindeer Crossings, the Snow Storms and maybe the naughty elf, but keep an eye out for Santa's sleigh as he could help you on your way! 

We absolutely loved playing this game last year, it really added to the excitement on Christmas eve and kept people amused while dinner was cooking Christmas day too.

I hope your family love it as much as mine!

Suitable for ages 6+

Currently priced at £15.49 from Amazon
