The rules are borderline ridiculous but that's exactly what kept us so entertained. The game itself is really well thought-out as you play through you prepare and then ultimately rush toward christmas.
The mat itself is well made and the printing looks good. The checker pieces are solid, with one end being concave and the other not. The mat is thick enough that it provides durability.
