Are you Team Santa or Team Jesus?

The new hotly debated irreverent card game generating recent controversy and praise in the United Kingdom, Santa VS Jesus, is now available in the States through Amazon.com.

After Ho Ho Ho'ing and Hallelujah'ing its way through Europe Santa VS Jesus is ready to be played this holiday season with close friends and family members who aren't afraid to live on the edge and stir-up a bit of good-hearted trouble with this fun tongue-in-cheek game.

The card game is based on the age-old battle, who actually rules Christmas? Is it Santa or is it Jesus? The creators of Santa VS Jesus Card Game, one of the top-selling card games on Amazon.com in the United Kingdom, have made it easier to choose between the two with their breakout comedic card game.

Santa VS Jesus splits players into two teams to go head-to-head in a hilarious attempt to win the most believers to determine who will rule Christmas.

The two sides, Team Santa and Team Jesus match wits through several Christmas themed challenges – puzzles, riddles, brainteasers and much more to win valuable believers. Once teams are picked, each player must call the others by their characters name or risk losing a valuable Believer card.

The game's co-creators, David McGranaghan and Julian Miller noted "we originally came up the idea for Santa VS Jesus a few years ago when we were asked to entertain our families over Christmas. The card game proved to be an immediate success. It's important that players and critics have a sense of humor to play Santa VS Jesus as our goal in making this game was for it to have a bit of tongue-in-cheek quality to it."

Santa VS Jesus is for 4-16 players and recommended for ages 15+. Each Santa VS Jesus includes four packs of 50 gameplay cards, 16 Character Cards and 28 Believer cards ($24.99 MSRP on Amazon). A round of Santa VS Jesus lasts nearly one hour – on average.
