Christmas party games can be great and when you have a Christmas party it is always a good idea to include some kind of game. Here are ten fun ones that you may want to consider playing at your next event.
Why not put together some Christmas themed bingo cards and have fun with a festive version of this classic game?
2. White elephant
You can’t go wrong with this popular game. Be sure to give all attendees advance notice so everyone comes prepared. You may also want to have a special prize for the person who brings the best white elephant as voted for by the rest of the party goers. There are many variations on this classic, so you’ll want to decide on the rules before you begin.
3. I never
This can be quite entertaining and can also be an icebreaker for a party with many guests who don’t know each other. The basic idea is that each guest takes turns saying something that he has never done. Every guest that has done that is removed and you want to be the last one left in the game. So the idea is to think of something you’ve never done that you think at least some if not most of the guests have done.
4. Guess what Christmas carol
This is usually played as a pen or pencil and paper game where you have the sheets created ahead of time. You find online or anywhere else you can, rhymes, jokes, or other facts about various Christmas carols and each guest or group of guests has to figure out which carol is which. Then you give a prize to the person who gets the most correct answers.
5. Christmas Picture Matching Game
For this game, you will need to have pictures already prepared and you will play it similar to a standard memory game, either on a board or on the floor.
6. finnish the christmas carol
This game is played similar to name that tune, where you sing or say the first part of a Christmas carol and then the person who answers has to finish the title, song, or verse.
7. Representation of the Nativity
This is a classic for many family Christmas parties, but it can also work for churches or youth groups or any other appropriate group. Assign roles ahead of time so people can bring costumes or can be obtained ahead of time for each person and then do a re-enactment of the Nativity story.
8. Who or what am I with a Christmas theme?
This is a version of the classic game Who am I. It is played by putting a piece of paper with the name of a Christmas-related person or object on the back of each person and then everyone wonders around the room talking to each other and asking questions to find out who or what they are.
9. Duck Duck Goose (Reindeer)
It is played just like the children’s game duck duck goose, instead of duck you say reindeer and even with a large group of adults this game can be a lot of fun and a riot.
10. Decorate the sleigh
You can decorate a large real sleigh outdoors or make smaller paper or wooden sleds and then use them as a centerpiece or other object for your holiday decorations.
Have fun with these Christmas party games, and keep in mind that most games played at other times of the year can be adapted for Christmas.
