10th tip of Christmas- have you played these games?
Over this holiday season we often find ourselves in groups of friends, family and colleagues. When these events happen we all want to have a good time, but it doesn’t mean that it has to revolve around alcohol and food! Below I have put three of my favourite games that anyone can play and two that you’ll need the games for.
Charades- first create two teams, then each member of a team takes a piece of paper and writes down a book, film, or person. The opposition then has to communicate what is on the paper without talking. Set a 30 sec/1 min timer to get through as many as you can. Then the other team would do the same until one team gets through all of the pieces of paper.
Pictionary- This is very similar to charades but this time you are only allowed to draw what is on the paper. No writing!
Guess who- Each participant gets a post it and writes the name of a person on it, and then gives it to the person on their left. Without seeing what is on the paper you stick it to your forehead. The aim of the game is to guess who you are via a series of yes or no questions that others will answer for you. For every yes you get you get another go.
Trivial Pursuit- The classic quiz game where you move around the board answering a range of questions covering subjects like sport and leisure, history, science and nature, entertainment, art and literature.
Monopoly- another classic game which can get rather heated in our household. This game has developed to cover lots of locations including Cambridge, London and special editions covering Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.
