You and your team will need to collect present tokens, hidden around town. The more tokens, the more highly Santa will rate you. 

Actors will be put in place around the town centre, playing the roles of real Christmas characters who will interact with teams during the game and deliver an added dimension (keep an eye out for mean elves who might be following you to steal your tokens!).
