NOEL SHUFFLE, it’s a BOOK, it’s a GAME, it’s FAMILY FUN!

Noel Shuffle is a children’s book and holiday challenge game which brings families together during the Christmas season.

WILMINGTON, NC – Noel Shuffle , it’s a BOOK, it’s a GAME, it’s FAMILY FUN! The Noel Shuffle game and book were created and written by Wilmington, North Carolina resident, Jane Rogers. Mrs. Rogers tells the story of when her seven year old son took a handmade Christmas craft that spelled Noel and changed it to read Leon.  When she noticed the change she shuffled it back to Noel, but the next day the same thing happen again, it spelled Leon. Rogers went to her son and asked what was up and he replied, “Mom, game on”.  “My family has enjoyed the Noel Shuffle tradition for over 20 years. To go along with the game I wrote the Noel Shuffle story book. I have handmade these sets and given them away to friends and family for all these years. I am so excited to finally share my book and holiday family fun game with the world,” said Rogers. The whimsical Noel Shuffle gift set includes a children’s book and four plush gingerbread characters. The Noel Shuffle plush characters are used in a family fun Christmas game. Game play runs throughout the holiday season and can be enjoyed by the entire family. NOEL SHUFFLE: THE BOOK (ages 3 +) Follow Noel and her brother Leon on their journey through Jolly Town in the beautifully illustrated Noel Shuffle children’s book. Illustrator, Scott Oatman took Jane’s vision and sketched it onto the pages. The story line involves a sister, Noel, who is boastful about her Christmas name and her brother Leon, whose jealousy leads to antics throughout the town. Their parents hear about the problem and the two siblings learn valuable life lessons as they work together to solve the problem they both created. NOEL SHUFFLE: THE GAME (Fun for the ENTIRE FAMILY) The game is based on the story book's play on words NOEL and LEON. You begin the game by setting up the four plush characters to spell out the word N O E L. Then divide your family into two teams: NOEL team v.s. LEON team and begin "shuffling" these characters to spell your team name without getting caught by the opposing team. You can only shuffle the gingerbread plush around when no one is looking.
