Maybe Miser could be replaced by Peasant->Soldier->Fugitive->Disciple->Teacher?

well done!

i like that gold (gift from the wise men to jesus) will always be in the kingdom!

i'm also not the biggest fan of miser, who is that referring to?
maybe "herald", for the angles singing to the shepherds?

I assume Miser refers to Mr. Scrooge from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

The Lights token lets you look at the top card of your deck, and doesn't let you do anything with it?

Briefly makes people think that it synergizes with Wishing Well before they think about it. Aside from Mystic, there's really not a lot that it works with. Good with Pawn. Possibly Band of Misfits and Overlord. And Wish. And Nobles.

I just realized it says "put your Lights token" instead of "move your lights token"

Well, and any disappearing non-terminal to some extent (e.g. Candlestick Maker), in that it can give you information about what Action to play next.

So I'm trying to figure out what the best strategy on this board would be.

The villages and the trashing are both very weak. Vacation seems too slow and unreliable here, so that leaves Snowy Village as the only other village.  The problem with using Snowy Village is that it would nerf Magic Hat and Sleigh, which is the best draw.  So I think you'd probably plan on using non-terminal draw (Magic Hats and Sleighs) with a single terminal.  If I'm feeling bold, maybe I'd get one Snowy Village and try to play it after all my non-terminal draw.

So what should the single terminal be?  Snowball fight is the only trashing, but the points from Tree would probably help your opponents more than the junking would hurt, same with Santa's Workshop.  Grinch would probably be pretty good (especially with Tree points), but it seems like Visit would really be the strongest terminal, basically like taking a Possession turn.  We would need a clarification on what happens if Relatives play Visit.  Is it Relatives the whole way down?  Because that might lead to a Duchy rush.  Otherwise the Relative deck probably plays the same way, except the best terminal for the Relative to play is Grinch.

I think I'd open double Silver here on 4-3, or Visit-Socks on 5-2, and I'd sprinkle in a Duchy or two along with Sleigh and Magic Hat.  I would probably need to start greening pretty soon after my deck is able to hit $8, since Provinces will start emptying very quickly after the Relative decks are able to hit $8.

"If it's not their turn" is supposed to clarify that.

Santa's Workshop should clearly be an Attack, I don't think these cards can be canon.  ;)

Ah, but when you're taking your relative's turn for them, shouldn't the sense of "you" actually be your relative? (I mean, when it talks about "your hand," it's really talking about their hand.) So playing Visit should have your relative's relative (presumably you, if the symmetric property of relatedness holds) take an extra turn. So infinite turns!

It’s the other way around. Protection from attacks doesn’t make you pleased, this does
