THE BEST GAMES AT CHRISTMAS

24.12.16

Something I love about Christmas with the family is the part after dinner when you're super full of yummy food with the biggest food baby, sat around the living room playing game with the family.

I love talking to friends and finding out what games they play on Christmas Day and which is their family favourite. So I thought I'd share with you some games you might not have heard of as suggestions to play on Christmas Day this year!

What's your favourite game at Christmas?
I first heard about Accentuate on Dragon's Den which sounded super funny as I love trying (and failing) to do accents. In the game, you read from the cards and attempt the accent, and if your team guesses the accent you're doing correctly then your team is awarded the amount of points shown on the card.

Everyone knows how to play Monopoly!
The classic Christmas game and the cause of many family disputes, but it's not really Christmas without a game of Monopoly now is it?
And rumour has it is that Monopoly have launched a helpline for you to call to get the right rules to solve the family arguments... How awesome is that?

The rudest and most offensive game ever. So if you're offended easily, do not play this game - you'll hate it. However, I bloody love it! We always crack this one out at Christmas time for drunken rudeness!


Scattergories
One of my favourite games of all time!
You're given a card of categories and a dice with letters on. So you roll the dice and find the letter that all your answers to the category card must start with and pick them most unique answers to get the most points.

The best iPhone App game in the world, I bloody love it.
Created by Ellen DeGeneres it's essentially Charades but with different categories to choose from. You hold your phone to your head and you have to guess what the other player is acting out from the word/phrase displays on your phone before you run out of time. If you guess correctly you nod the phone done and if you want to pass you flip your head backwards.
I've never laughed so much at a game.

You can't go wrong with cards. An inexpensive game with so many versions. Some of my favourites are Shit Head, Rummy, Chase the Ace, Bullshit and Poker.

One of my favourite games from my childhood that I used to play over and over with my cousins and see how many children I can fill my little blue car with. Such a fun game with real life situations and career paths to take with a spinning wheel instead of a dice, I love it.
They also have an iPhone App too which I play all the time because it's just too good!

The longest game we've had in our family home and one we always return to at Christmas.
A classic game of puzzle where you have to guess the inclosed formation of colours and correctly guess it before you get to the end, or you lose!

A game I bought last year which is a lot more difficult than I thought!
A sister to the Logo Game, you simply (more difficult that it sounds!) race around the board answering questions about British culture and the one who gets to the end first... Wins!

My Nana's favourite game ever and one we always used to play with her, so I imagine this Christmas as the first one without her that we'll play it too.
 You have 7 randomly selected letter tiles and have to create words with them throughout the game to get the most points to win.

Merry Christmas!
