  • Game board
  • Sorry deck of cards
  • 16 tokens


    • 1

      Set up the pieces in their appropriate location. Have each player select a color and place all pawns of that matching color in the same colored START space. Shuffle the deck of cards and place face down. Have each player select a card. The highest number goes first. Play continues to the left.

      Draw a 1 or a 2 to get out of the start space otherwise you lose your turn. Discard used cards in a separate pile. Do as the card says if you draw a 1 or 2. Move your token one space outside of the start area if you draw a 1. If you draw a 2 move one token one space to get out of the start area and draw again. Head your token in the left direction, following the arrows on the board. Dismiss this instruction if you draw a card that makes you move backwards and move backwards to the right instead.

      Continue selecting cards and following the instructions on each card you pick. Switch another player spaces if you draw an 11. Transfer your token from home to another player´s space if you draw a Sorry card. Return their token to start. Take another player´s pawn back to their start location if you land on their space exactly and say ¨Sorry.¨ Attempt to get out of the start area again by drawing a 1 or 2 card. You may have more than one token on the board at a time provided that each token got out with a separate 1 or 2 card or a Sorry card.

      Slide your token from the arrow to the circle if you land on a slide that is any other color besides the color of your token. Bump any other tokens that are on the slide spaces back to home including your own tokens.

    • 5

      Forfeit your turn if the only move that you can make is to land on a space already occupied by your colored token, otherwise choose a different pawn to move. Move your token if possible even if doing so is not to your advantage; you must move if it is possible for you to move. Move backwards if you draw a 4 or 10 card. If you are within a few spaces of the start area and you draw a 4 or 10 card, move back the number of spaces provided on the card and on the next turn you can move into the safety zone.

So This Is Christmas....

by edsdesk

"... So here under the tree, dazzling and glossy in sateen bows and velvet ribbons are the gifts of this president:
Sparkle-laden paper wrapped around a box of Fear. The plastic paranoia sealed package contains all the colors of Fear from brown to yellow to pink and purple. A small booklet of instructions is included on how to apply Fear to every situation and person not "one of us," and how to brush on racism, homophobia and bigotry with the mascara of mendacity.
A flag-covered box of brightly painted brittle toy soldiers and game board, plus interchangeable body parts for when they get broken from too much rough play. Each toy soldier is hand-painted, unnumbered and anatomically neutered to withstand everything but real war. Families not included.
There is...
