Toss Toys in a Fast-Paced Game for Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Fans – Available Now from The Op!

The holidays always have the family scrambling to prepare as managing everyone’s wish list is sure to cause a frenzy. Gift wrap is tossed, decorations are taken, and it’s everyone for themselves in an operation to organize! If only there were way to put that focused, dedicated energy into an exciting game, delivering presents would be way more fun and less of a mess!

Good thing The Op can take familiar pop culture frenzies and put them into fast-paced, nonstop dice-rolling games with the rush of a race—and new ways to “clean up!” For fans of Halloween and Christmas spirit, it’s Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Merry Madness, which lets players toss toys into Sandy Claws’s Christmas bag, and it’s available now!

If “An All-Out Game of Frightful Flinging” suggests some serious hijinks, it’s because the Pumpkin King’s plan to deliver toys to Christmas Town has gone haywire! Jack Skellington’s Halloween Town helpers were throwing their homemade gifts at each other instead of dutifully assembling, and now Jack Skellington, Sally, Zero, Mayor, and Lock, Shock & Barrel’s mission is out of hand. Act fast to make Christmas out of the mayhem and gather all the flying Zombie Ducks, Vampire Teddys, and more into Sandy Claws’ Christmas Bag. Be the first to clear off your workbench to get a Ghoulish Gift Scoring Token. The first person to earn three gets to ride in Sandy’s sleigh!

This simultaneous action game calls for fast reflexes, as all players will be repeatedly rolling their own sets of dice at the same time to find out how to make each move: what token to toss from their player board, how many, and where! It can be to their left, right, or the center of the table. Since you’ll get discards from competitors on both sides, trying to isolate one kind of token will seem endless! Keep rolling and flinging (and likely laughing, if you’re doing it right)!

Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: Merry Madness  can also be played multiple ways to really crank up the chaos! Alternate rules can limit the tokens you can access, require you to complete a set, or simply collect the most! Just when you think you’ve got a strategy down, you’ll have to change your plan to work with each variation. As an additional option for younger players, the rules allow children to play using only token and direction dice, letting them move all of the items of that type (instead of a specific quantity). Modify these as needed to keep everyone engaged!

Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: Merry Madness is made for 3-5 players, ages 6 and up, and is here in The Op’s online shop or your favorite local game store for $24.99!
