...and The 12 Games of Christmas

1-12 Players  |  15-45 mins  |  Ages 12+

Since the success of our print-and-play Kickstarter campaign in December 2021, and our successful campaign in December 2022, Small Furry Games has been hard at preparing Bah! Humbug! for print in early 2024! 

The boxed edition is bursting 12 additional games by designers from around the globe, including Felix Falk (Sweden), Duncan Hecht (Canada), James Gjaltema (Canada), Evan Halbert (USA), Koyomi Kawasumi (Japan/USA), Galen McCown (USA), Jan Spodek & Pedro Kerouac (Portugal), Chris Stone (USA), Ren Vice (Australia), David Waldman (USA), Clark Willix (USA) and Emily Willix (USA).

All the games draw from the same small box of components, making Bah! Humbug! a perfect stocking stuffer, and a convenient collection of games to take along as you visit friends and family during the holidays. 


The information below is from our 2021 PNP Campaign. 

Game Summary - Bah Humbug

Mail your True Love one Christmas card each day—and be sure to boast to everyone else about it. In order to keep up with all the other suitors, you might have to lie about what you’ve sent. But lying is half the fun! Will you win by being the sneakiest liar, or by catching others in THEIR lies?

Bah! Humbug! is a bluffing and deduction card game that uses a special card deck based on the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas" carol (12 x Drummers Drumming, 11 x Pipers Piping, etc.) plus a deck of 12 cards that form a circular wreath or calendar in the center of the table.

How to Play

Each round, players are dealt a hand of Christmas cards. They then take turns secretly mailing 1 Christmas card to their True Love (playing a card face-down on the calendar). These cards are played in descending order, from 12 to 1. As each player boasts about what card they've sent, other players may shout, “Bah! Humbug!” to catch them in a lie. Lies that go unchallenged are awarded "coal" at the end of the round, while lies that are successfully caught earn the accuser 1 "holly berry" (or take away holly berries, if the accuser is wrong.)
