The fireplace crackles. The smell of pine is in the air. The family gathers to enjoy each other's company during this holiday season. In the corner of the room, a record player fills the room with warm, soothing tunes from classic holiday albums. The crate of albums is positioned near, holding onto the many memories connected of years past. Family members take turns getting up and selecting an album, studying the cover, and sliding the album out of the jacket to load onto the player. As the needle pops and crackles, the wonderful music enchants the room and seems to synchronize with the twinkle of the lights on the Christmas Tree. It is another Vinyl: Holiday!
In Vinyl: Holiday, players will work towards building Christmas trees out of albums. Each album features a sub-genre (Classical, Traditional, and Contemporary), one of four decades (the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s), one of five spirits (Joy, Love, Peace, Hope, and Faith). These album trees are being built by the players to your left and right in the true holiday spirit. Some of the points you gain are entirely in your control with the matches you make with previously played albums. Other points come from the combined efforts of you and the players to your left and right. To further increase the scoring opportunities, each player can sacrifice their hand size to complete attributes printed on each album's gift tags. Vinyl: Holiday Edition will be a game that you will want to play all year round.
