Who Is Santa?! is a 4-12 players werewolf-like bluffing game, ages 6 and up. Game time varies from 5 to 30 minutes depending on the number of players and their chosen pace. You only need 23 Santa cards to play this game and the rules are very simple. However, the game gets very interesting because it involves talking, bluffing, reading people, counting, memorizing and a lot of laughing :)
The set contains one Santa card, 12 animal cards and 12 food cards. It fits into your pocket and is convenient to have around the Christmas table when all the family is together and there is plenty of time for games.
Santa cards are great for creating other games as well. Here are a couple of them, and we believe more will be created in future (please send us your ideas!).
Present Giveaway is fast & fun reaction game for 3-12 players, ages 4 and up. One player is an Elf holding all 12 animal cards in his hand. Each other player is a Santa and each has all 12 present cards in their hands. Elf throws an animal card on the table - that animal is eager to get a present:) All Santas try to fulfill their duty as quickly as possible by throwing the correct present on top of it first (so that it overlaps). Played until all the animals get their presents.
Feed the animals is a simple game for the youngest, where they have to match the food card with the correct animal. This way they learn about animals and their eating habits. You can tell a story about the animals, making it more entertaining and educational.
WHAT EXACTLY DO I RECEIVE?
You will receive a print, cut & play PDF version of the Santa cards (2 sheets) and 1 sheet with rules and suggestions for other games.
Santa's goal in the game is to secretly deliver the right presents to each animal. The goal of the animals is to find out who Santa is before he has delivered the presents, so that they receive their presents sooner (they are too curious to wait!).
Each player gets an animal card and one gets the Santa card. No one knows who got what. It all begins with a Night phase, when the Santa tries to deliver the present cards to the right animals, while they stay with their eyes closed.
During the Day phase the players check whether they got the right presents. The ones who did, reveal themselves, but stay in the game. They all chat & discuss who could the Santa be and then vote.
The selected one shows his card. If it’s not the Santa, the game goes on to another Night phase. The game ends when Santa delivers all the presents correctly or is revealed by the animals. All players get their presents anyway, so everyone is a winner each game!
You will receive an explicit rulebook together with the cards. Recent full rules can be read here: Rules of "Who is Santa?!". Rules are in English and Lithuanian languages at the moment.
The old cute and funny artwork of all 23 cards was done by Irma, a drawing enthusiast:
However, we are throwing in amazing cartoons done by our professional cartoonist Nerijus. This was a stretch reward, but we believe that even if the stretch goal is not reached this game deserves the best art. So you will definitely receive upgraded cartoon cards. Nerijus will be drawing them through the weekend - you can see the progress below:

More rewards are planned: extra cards will be our next stretch reward once we reach the first two. Also, if this game gets popular enough, we are thinking of releasing a factory made set of cards for next Christmas.
We are a team of 6 people: the game creator (Urtis), the writer,editor,artist Irma, communicator Luke and 3 cartoonists: Agne, Greta and Nerijus.
Risks and challenges
The game is complete and ready for printing, so there are no risks related to the delivery of the Santa cards.
Regarding the bigger rewards, we've assessed our capabilities and are confident that we will deliver the cards on time, but a tiny risk remains that we might be late on some of the custom drawing rewards if all of them are chosen.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
