RULES FOR MORE PLAYERS
12 Days can be enjoyed by 6 or more players using two decks of Day and Gift cards.
First, remove the Santa and Mrs. Claus cards from one of the Gift decks and return them to the box. Next, shuffle together both Gift decks.
Place the two Day decks side-by-side on the table so that the same valued Day appears on both (for instance, at the start of the game, both “1” cards are showing). Each round, the two Day cards of the same value will be awarded.
The game plays the same as in the 3-5 player version, with the following rule changes:
The players with the two lowest-value Gift cards win the two current Day cards for the round. In the case of a two-way tie, the tied players each receive one of the Day cards. In the case of a tie with three or more players, the tied value is skipped and the next two lowest-valued Gift cards win the Day cards. If there is a further tie of three or more, skip to the next two lowest-valued Gift cards.
Example: If three players each played cards with a value of ‘4’, all of these cards would be skipped. The next lowest-played cards were ‘5’ and ‘8’ and those players win the Day cards
In the case of a two-way tie with the Santa and Mrs. Claus cards, the tied players each receive the Day cards, but must gift them to a non-Santa or Mrs. Claus player.
