Thanks to Continuum Games, you can now receive coal in your Holiday Stocking and be excited about it! With a large selection of truly unique and fun games for all ages to choose from, Continuum Games has just the right Holiday Gift for the game fan on your list!
I was not familiar with Lumps, the Elf Coal Game, so I was glad to get the opportunity to review it for the Holidays. The first thing I noticed was the fact that this game is one that you can hold in 1 hand, which makes it a game that you can literally take everywhere with you. It can fit perfectly in a Christmas stocking! I love playing games, but I hate having to find space for the huge boards, boxes and extras. With this game, the dice are stored in the stocking and that is it! The dice are the coal and I have to say this is a fun Holiday-themed game to play that can be enjoyed year-round!
How To Play: “The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 points…a pair of 10s scores 10 points. What makes the game unique is that it has four different types of dice and there are few high numbers. On each turn you have to make decisions on which dice to keep and re-roll. Do you play it safe and hold a pair of 4s, or chance it and try for a high pair? The endless possibilities make Lumps exciting and addictive.”
