In Santa’s Bag you play an Elf in Santa’s workshop. You make toys for kids. Santa reads his list and tells the Elves what toys to make and who will get them.
On your turn, look at the toys that need to be made. Do you have the parts to make a toy? Do you need more parts? You can trade with other Elves to get a part. You can even use Elven Magic to make the right part!
The trickier the toy, the more points you earn. Building toys for nicer children earns you even more points! When you’ve built all the toys on Santa’s list, the player with the most points wins!

This great new family game with the holiday theme gives players an opportunity to become elves in Santa’s Workshop. Parents describe the experience as an advanced matching game where you use your collected cards to complete a toy for a specific child on Santa’s list. The game is appropriate for a wide age range and feels more cooperative than competitive which parents really liked. The game is simple enough to learn and get started with but complex enough that kids can play for an extended time and remain engaged. In fact, one of the highest scores this game got was for its replay factor as families came back to it multiple times. For kids there really was something exciting about making toys for others which is just what the season should be all about.
