When sending an elf to the right spot in the mail room, must the cards be swept? I know that is what the rules mean taken at face value. But I still wonder because ...

I can't quite tell whether the right space is meant to just be a different option than the left space or a worse option because you only get two gifts. If the latter, then it is already worse by getting one less card, and having to swipe possibly good cards makes it even more worse, but if the person wants to swipe the cards then that is an improvement.

Yes - you have to sweep the cards. When you go to that spot, you're double checking the naughty list...and it turns out those kids have not been on their best behavior, so to the bottom of the pile they go.

Whether it's worse or not, depends on whether you like the gifts that are currently available. Remember, now matter which space you use, you can always take blindly from the top of the deck if you don't like the 6 face up gifts available.

Great, thanks for the explanation.

I ordered the game from Coolstuffinc and it should arrive today. I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to it. I've read some articles and watched the video by Robert Geistlinger, and already read through the rules so I'm ready to play right away. I've been looking for a Christmas-themed euro-type game for a long time!
