This strange gemstone tree-topper has sat for untold millennia, shining its joyful and life-giving light over the small hamlet of Christmas Town serving as a symbol of hope and peace. Now it is wane and dimming. At the same time far to the north, hidden in the gloom of a mountain-top cave, the vile Grinch has awakened. Foul, mean, and possibly with a hole where his heart should be, this king of sinful sots seethes with hatred for the holidays. With only days left before Christmas Eve, a sour-sweet wind blows across the north and spreads a vile taint that threatens the yearly tradition of Lord Claus traveling the realm delivering cheer and good faith.

The Alien board game reminds me of the Aliens game that the members of my university's strategy club used to play all the time. It was brutal... they almost never won. :p
