In Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Merry Madness, Jack Skellington’s plan to deliver toys to Christmas Town goes haywire after his Halloween Town helpers start throwing gifts at each other instead. Dice combinations will tell players which presents to send flying into Sandy Claws’ Christmas bag, how many of the item to send, and where to send the item. Once a player’s board is empty, they have to shout “This is Halloween!” to score the round. The first player to earn three points wins.

The game features multiple ways to play. In another variation, players can roll the dice and gather Christmas toys from other players’ boards and Sandy Claws’ Christmas bag to complete sets of toys. Each complete set of supplies earns you a point and the first player to earn three points wins.

In Harry Potter Mischief in Diagon Alley, kid can play as first-year Hogwarts students as they rush to Diagon Alley with their shopping lists. In the game, many magical items have been hexed and mixed up among the shops. Players can quickly roll the dice to fling the scattered brooms, books, and other supplies back to where they belong, trying to be the first player with an organized shop to win.

Both dice games are available now on The Op’s website. Merry Madness is also available on Amazon, while Mischief in Diagon Alley is available on fun.com.
