Spirits of Christmas

A light cooperative strategy card game in which players act as the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future from the beloved story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. You must work together to take Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey through the past, present, and future, showing Scrooge the consequences of his actions in the hope that he will see the error of his ways before his time is up!

Heading to Kickstarter in Spring 2023.

Spirits of Christmas Game Design Log

Listed in order from newest to oldest entries.


Preparing details from manufacturers. New artwork for the rondel (it will be lovely) and all new cover art (it will also be lovely) is in process.


We did indeed get great feedback from JeffCon. Playtesters expressed their disappointment that they couldn’t buy the game right away for this holiday season! As the artwork continues, we will begin getting the word out about crowdfunding in early spring 2023.


The game design is complete, and I just received a proof copy of the prototype in order to use for public playtesting. The first major round of public playtesting will occur this weekend at JeffCon 2022 in Charlotte, NC (11/11-12/2022). Hoping for some great feedback, and really hoping to see gamers having a great time with it. It’s an especially good time to playtest for thematic draw-in, as the holidays are right before us. Harder to get into the theme in July. :o)
