It’s not far away now. The annual gauntlet of high emotions that is the modern Christmas is just around the corner.

There’s the excitement of it all and then the eventual anticlimax once it’s all over. There’s the unrequited love of the office crush, and the inevitable rejection when the object of your desire cops off with Alan from accounts at the office party.

Then there’s the unadulterated thrill of the unexpected gift that’s just what you were wishing for. Or, the crushing disappointment as you stare disconsolately at the same old pile of tired and unimaginative tat bestowed upon you by your nearest and dearest.

And if there’s one thing to really get the tension bubbling along nicely, it’s the traditional Christmas Day after-dinner game.

If, when somebody says “boardgame” you actually hear “bored game” then fear not. Somebody has done you the favour of all favours this year.

The Boardgame Remix Kit is a twist on the rules and formats of four classic games – Cluedo, Monopoly, Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit. The changes range from the radical to just the slightest of tweaks, but whichever you go for, it’s sure to inject a bit of life into the mix.

It’s available as cards, as an app, as an ebook, or soon, even as a good-old-fashioned book (made with real paper, and everything), so everybody can enjoy it.

Buy yours today at You won’t regret it. Not as much as what you said to Alan from accounts, anyway...
