This game gets families who love Christmas to try a new activity every day in the lead up to Christmas

The Getting Lost Advent Calendar allows you to add a little bit more Christmas joy in the lead up to Christmas without the stress of having yet another thing to plan!

The Advent Calendar Edition of the Getting Lost Game has 24 Christmas activities to do in the lead up to Christmas.  We've numbered each of the cards from 1-24 but as you know at Getting Lost we have a fairly flexible outlook on rules so feel free to shuffle (or just plain cheat!) if these days don't work for you.
Over the course of 24 days we’ll have you giving to others, making Santa Grotto’s in your lounge, rewriting Christmas carols, making your lunch in Christmas shapes, learning new things, hunting for Christmassy things in your neigbourhood, saying ho ho ho when you see a red car and dressing each other for the day!

Our directions are all designed to be low cost and accessible without a lot of set up or effort required.

As with all our games we get ideas and feedback from our Getting Lost crew on Facebook, subscribers to our e-mails, purchasers and players of our games. Special thanks to Justine, Lea, Kathleen and Andi who have all had their ideas included in this edition of the Getting Lost Game.

I brought Getting Lost Edition Advent Calendar as a gift and I'm sure that the will enjoy it as much as all the other reviews.

Thanks so much for the review. Happy adventuring.

Love this idea...

Some of these ideas work well with our Christmas build up... today's card was to have lunch in Christmas shapes so we had Christmas tree pancakes with Christmas dogs plating in the background! It's helping me to get into the Christmas spirit... which I usually struggle, so thankyou

Looking forward to the fun

I have read through all the cards but have yet to start playing (brought this almost a month ahead of the advent season as I started planning for Christmas). The cards look like a lot of fun although some may need to be tweaked to match my personal circumstances (such as the parent/children race as I don't have children of my own and I am pretty sure my cats won't bother racing me).
Love the design of the cards and the inclusion of the wishlist space on the back however I probably won't write on the back of them and would probably have loved them even more if they had included Christmassy pictures on the back (especially ones that were representative of a New Zealand Christmas). But that wont impact my enjoyment of the game itself thats just a personal preference.

Love the cards. Haven't had feedback from my young niece as she won't see them until 1 December, but I am sure she'll love them.
