Description

The Great Elf Strike of 1999 brought the North Pole to it's knees. Several demands had to be met like higher wags, lower urinals and vacations. Kris Kringle decides to go on a cruise and take some elves and his unemployed brother, Dingle Kringle. Dingle makes a bet with Kris and to settle it, they'll play a winner-take-all game of shuffleboard.

If you are playing a one player game, you play as Kris Kringle in red and the computer is Dingle in blue. You begin by deciding who plays first. As you brought no change and Dingle is broke, you flip an elf. The loser must play first. You play by pressing space or clicking the mouse. You can use the arrow keys or move the mouse to aim left or right. You will see an indicator of the ship's level as well as a grid with lit boxes moving from bottom to top. The farther away the lights, the more power you will have. If you go too far left or right, you will fall off the side. If you go too far forward, you will go off the edge and your elf will get eaten by a shark. You are attempting to stop the elves in the one hundred, two hundred, three hundred or four hundred areas. The four hundred area is the farthest edge without going to the sharks. There are three rounds of four tries apiece with the seas getting rougher each round.

If an elf appears with a yellow flashing bathing suit, it will hold up a sign indicating that it is double or triple points. After each round, the points are totaled and after the game is over, the winner is shown with a Christmas wreath with Christmas lights around their portrait. As this is an Elf Bowling, there are wisecracks and sight gags aplenty.
