The economy is tough right now, but playing Gift of the Yeti doesn’t cost anything, and only takes up a little bit of your time.  It’s also really fun (I’ve already played it several times, myself), and totally cute.  So, if you have a Facebook account, take a little time to play Gift of the Yeti, and join in with the enormous community of gamers that have been making Child’s Play such a success year after year.
