Hi all,

First up, season's greetings and all the jazz! No matter where you are and what you're doing, hope you'll be able to find the time in the coming weeks to look back on the year that was and have some good times with family and friends.

Speaking of which, I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for any variants that are a good fit for this time of year? I know there are a couple of threads already in this forum about appropriate games, but I don't think I've seen a thread specifically about variants.

For example, there's a fun variant on Pandemic that sees players trying to distribute gifts while beating the Grinch - http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/475270/reverse-pandemic-or-h...

Any other suggestions? And thanks in advance! Happy Holidays!

It's not exactly a variant, but 9 Minutes to Takeoff is apparently a PnP retheme of Forbidden Island. It was part of a Christmas-themed PnP contest, so if you're up for some crafting, there were some pretty good entries.
