This is a print-and-play game, with two main decks of cards, some tokens and a series of location cards. Before the game, players will need to carefully select supply cards to give them the best chance at success because the mountain is an unforgiving place that will throw dangerous Encounter Cards at the expedition. Once on their way up the mountain, how well the player balances these cards with the expedition's health, endurance, and strength will define the razor thin margin of success and failure atop Mount Everest.

All components (and some alternatives) are provided in the PNP files. Expect your first expedition to take around 30min, with follow up games lasting around 15-20min. Mount Everest is a dangerous place, so carefully choose your supplies and read the rock face well, and you just might secure the coveted prize of being the first to reach the roof of the world.

The ornaments fall as the squirrel knocks them off the tree. If any ornament falls completely off the tree, the owner awakes and the game is over, and the players lose. During the game, the players will place ornaments on the tree, and with enough help, they can place the garland around each level on the tree. If the players get all the garland on the tree at each level, plus the shiny yellow star, they win.
In Trim the Tree players cooperatively play cards to add elves to the tree in order to add garland/tinsel around it. Each level of the tree requires support of like-minded elves, indicated by the color of the card. Finish the garland at all levels before the card deck runs out, or you took too long and the family wakes up and you lose.

Welcome to the monthly Print & Play News Blog.


This is my meager attempt to fill a small part of the gaps that Chris Hansen left behind due to the hiatus of his awesome Print and Play Games News.

The primary focus of this blog will be on game announcements. For right now, it will also be limited to free games
- that have been submitted to the BGG database and
- that have easy to find files in the game's File Section or a link to a WIP-Thread containing the files in the Forum Section.

I wrote a little script that collects all newly submitted games in the Print & Play-Category. Depending on the volume I will maybe consider a bi-weekly schedule, so the games don't get lost in a massive post.

Finally, I'd like to explain a little bit what I'm doing and ask you to please be patient as I find my way around this blog:
The script-collected games have to be manually checked by me to see if they fulfill the criterias mentioned above. Another script will generate a bare bones blog post based on the collected info. There is still a good deal of manual work necessary. So if you find some dead-end links or wonky formatting, please let me know. Thanks!

If you have a game that fulfills the above mentioned criterias that you would like to see in this blog, please contact me with the necessary information (BGG entry & file links) and I will add it to the next post.
Also, if you have suggestions or want to contribute, please let me know in the comments or via geekmail.

Happy Gaming!
