One night a year, Santa J.Claus delivers presents to the children of the world... but for the rest of the time, he's protecting the world as the top secret agent of the Xtremely Mysterious Agency of Secrets (X.M.A.S), dishing out his own brand of justice to the world's most dastardly criminals. Santa and his Little Helper, newly qualified X.M.A.S agent Jingle Bells, are on the trail of DR Cumulus Nimbus, who's hell-bent on creating a new ice age.... and Santa hates snow! Can they stop the evil plot before the world is snowed under?
My boys (aged 6 and 8) have just been told at school that Santa does not exist, but would really rather believe that he does.
This story is perfect for that; the premise is that Agent X (aka Santa) uses the fact that people don't believe he exists as cover, in order to bring in the "naughty" people (criminals) during the year. Oh and he's not nearly as jolly as you've been led to believe.
I wouldn't play this to kids who are totally into Santa Claus - might raise a few unfortunate questions - but to anyone with wavering belief, it's perfect.
Two words; beard laser. Go on. You know you want too.
