Print and cut up the list of Christmas carols, on card if you have it, or fold up and put into a jar to pick from Divide players into teams. Each person on the team draws from the pile of cards, then has one minute to illustrate the Christmas carol. If the team guesses correctly, they get one point. Go until the first team reaches twenty points.
Team member draws a picture of bells with sound coming from them. The team starts singing Jingle Bells.
Description – Charades
Play charades as normal but people pick a card from the pile.
One player, the answerer, picks a Christmas themed object but does not reveal this to others in the game.
All other players ask the answerer questions which can be answered by a simple "Yes" or "No".
If 20 questions are asked by the players without the correct guess ever being found, the answerer has stumped the question-askers and gets another round, this time with a new object.
For the answerer, stump contestants by picking a hard-to-guess Christmas object. For the questioners, ask questions that accurately narrow down the possibilities so they can guess the object.
Answerer chooses the Christmas Tree.
Questioners ask "Is it brown?"
Answerer responds "No."
Questioners ask "Is it green?"
Answerer responds "Yes."
Questioners ask "Is it a Christmas Tree?"
Answer responds "Yes."
Questioners have won the game on the third question
Family Feud Christmas
Players are broken up into teams
Each team is asked a holiday-themed question by the Question Master, which includes survey responses to holiday-themed questions.
Each team gets three guesses which they write on a piece of paper and hand to the judge. The judge then reveals if their guesses were on the list and the resulting points. If their answer is the number one ranked result, they get 50 points.
If it's number two, they get 40, and so on.
Players go through the list of questions until they reach the end, where points are tallied. The winning team is the one with the most points.
The goal of the game is to accumulate more points than the opposing team through superior Christmas knowledge.
Judge asks the question "Name something you hang on a Christmas Tree." Team 1 answers lights, ornaments, and a star. Team 2 answers lights, ornaments and an angel.
The top answers were lights, 25% of respondents, ornaments, 23% of respondents, and angel, 10% of respondents.
Team 1 is awarded 90 points for getting the top answers, but missing the third. Team 2 is awarded 120 points for getting all three answers correct.
Have a wonderful Christmas and I hope these games will add some extra fun and not too many arguments!
