Board Game name Change Help

BGDF, long time no chat. Hope you are all well. I will be running our 2nd print run this year, but before I do I am thinking about a name change from:

Holiday Fever: A Family Tradition
Christmas Spirit: A Family Tradition

I have about 6 professional reviews online, and a "Rules School" tutorial done by Gameboy Geek all under the title "Holiday Fever" which I would need to have updated. I also have 9 reviews on BGG.

-Would I be able to update the BGG page, and keep the current reviews?
-Does anyone have any experience with a name Change after 3 years on the market?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you have all had a Fruitful year. God Bless

Game Boy Geek

I just finished up working with Dan the Game Boy Geek. He did 2 video's for me. Let me know if you guys like Dan's style. Dan was great to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone. If you may be doing something like this for your game, or are interested in what it cost feel free to PM me and I'll give you the details. Let me know what you think about the videos!!

Win $100 Amazon Gift Card

Ladies & Gentleman, friends, and people of the BGDF

I introduce the annual 2020 $100 Amazon gift card "Guess how many games we sell" give away, brought to you by Holiday Fever A Family Tradition.

Rules: Be the closest player to guess the total number of Holiday Fever games sold for 2020, and post it right here on this Blog. End date Jan 05th 2021.

If I remember correctly we did 252 games for 2019.

Note: Due to the pandemic we won't be doing any Holiday Bazaars which accounted for about 50 games last year.

3 games have already been sold

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

New Digital Magazine

I was contacted by Lake the creator of Everything board games about his new digital magazine. It looks awesome. Hopefully some of you can contact him and get featured in his bi-monthly. Hope all is well with everyone. Sorry for being so Distant during the Pandemic!! Just spending lots of time with family.


-I've decided to use GameLand to manufacture my game. Because they are the only one's that continued forward with the quote process.
-I've decided against TGC because my game was almost $52 per unit. I can't think of anyone except hobby gamer's that would pay that price for a game, and I don't think any hobby gamer's will be buying my game. So I ordered one for promo purposes and its off to China.


Thank you for your help!

What do you think about the Art for the board?
After reading the rules does the game make sense to you?

I have taken the advice of some of the regulars here, recovered from some bruises and updated the game, hired a pro Graphic Designer and cut everything unnecessary. Please take the time to read the rules and give me any advice and feedback that comes to mind.

Thank You.

I dare you to read my Rules!!

Your time is extremely valuable...Thank you!!!! Please make any comments you feel are appropriate concerning the Rules, Art, Theme, Concept and anything else you have in what ever detail. If I can return the favor and review your project please PM me. Note: Check page numbers as you read the rules!!

The Objective

The Theme

Set the Stage: The holiday season is here and the Bigwigs have caught an abominable case of Holiday Fever. Their madness is exposed to their cronies at the Banks who begin touting a new marketing revolution, they call “A FAMILY TRADITION” which guarantees consumer spending will skyrocket this holiday season.
The government is lobbied and signs into law that individuals can be “Too Big to Fail”. Rumors spread that you don’t need to pay off your Credit Card if you can spend its limit. The media twists the epidemic into a challenge and storm the public with headlines...
