Yeah yeah yeah. I know.
It’s only September.
Your kids just went back to school.
You thought you had PLENTY of time before you needed to dust the cobwebs off the jingly, merry, red-velveted part of your brain to recall exactly where you left last year’s Elf on the Shelf.
Nope. You need to start thinking now, my dear friends.
And while you’re thinking about whether he or she is in the attic, basement, hall closet, hidden in a black trash bag in the guest room, or possibly in an opaque Tupperware bin in the shed, I have something to help you pass the time.
Golly. You look BORED. Sure, there’s back-to-school nights and Halloween and Thanksgiving and a smattering of other holidays and travel and shopping to do between now and The Big Show, but this game is a sure-fire way to make you feel the
frustration magic of the season in your bones!
Light an evergreen candle, turn on the soul-gnawing music, and hide that elf – the first to find him gets a “gift”! And by “gift” I mean non-unwrappable itty bitty game piece your kids are bound to eat or lose before the first string of garland is hung. Hooray! This game is sure to haunt you harder than The Ghost of Christmas Past, for many years to come. Enjoy!
Nothing feels better than throwing the winning card down before your weeping child’s face while declaring, “You LOSE because you are NAUGHTY. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMM!!!!”
I imagine this game will go over very well with both emotionally fragile 36-month-olds as well as surly 15-year-olds, just as the box description insists.
Both of these games are available right now, so click on the images above to snap up the set on Amazon today!
Before you know it, it’ll be time to start making bedazzled mini cake pops with elfin grins on them, and setting your iPhone alarms to “Move The Damn Elf Again” about an hour after the kids doze off.
As for me here at ElfShaming? Oh, I have some more stuff up my sleeve, and I’ll see you around again soon.
Don’t forget to follow ElfShaming everywhere, so you don’t miss a single naughty Elf or Elfy goodie this year:
