Fun Christmas party games

 

There’s little that excites us more than Christmas - it is after all the season to be jolly, and jolly we are with our bundle of wrapped presents, Christmas melodies on repeat, and the wafting scent of roasted turkey in the air. But you can still amp up the festive mood. For all those Christmas gatherings you’ve RSVP-ed to, here are 8 party games that are sure to be a hit.

 

1. Ping Pong Race

Christmas party games - Ping Pong Race

A game that requires little to no setup: all you need are a few glasses and a ping pong ball. Ping Pong Race is like a relay race, but instead of running, you’ll be blowing the ping pong ball across a row of glasses.

Split into teams - to win, each player will need to successfully blow the ball across as fast as they can.

 

2. Ugliest Christmas Sweater Competition

Sweltering outside, but pleasantly cosy in any air-conditioned room.

The Ugly Christmas Sweater Competition is a Christmas must, and in this game, the lucky (unlucky) one wearing the ugliest will become the instant winner. Whether it’s the jumper that comes in a spectrum of reds and greens or the knitted pullover that’s embroidered with prancing reindeers - leave it up for your friends and family to decide.

Plus, they’ll make great themed outfits for any Christmas photo!

 

3. Chopsticks

In Chopsticks, each person has their own pair of chopsticks (a fork or spoon works too!) and you’ll be using it as ammo to “accuse” each other.

Each person will take turns to make a statement that best fits a certain person in the group. Someone who gives the best Christmas presents, someone who eats the fastest, or someone who has the loudest laugh - you get the gist.

The one with the most number of chopsticks pointed his way will get a mighty forehead flick!

 

4. Two Truths and a Lie

 

It’s just as the name sounds: Two Truths and a Lie means you ‘fess up to 2 truths + 1 lie - people have to guess which the lie is. For a more Christmasy-theme, stick to questions like:

  • Your favourite Christmas memory
  • The worst gift you’ve ever received
  • Most memorable Christmas party
 

5. Titanic

 

Christmas party games - Titanic

Titanic is a classic drinking game, one that’ll get you scrunching your face up in disgust. Why? It involves a glass, shot glass, beer, and something truly incompatible - be brave, and put in whatever you can find in your kitchen, like oil or celery juice.

All you have to do is place the shot glass in the larger glass of beer, and pour your liquid of choice. The first person to sink the shot glass loses and has to down it all in one go!

If celery juice is a complete turn-off, simply replace it with a spirit like vodka or soju.

 

6. How Many Ornaments?

As the name goes, How Many Ornaments? has you guessing the number of ornaments. It could be the Christmas bells around your home or baubles hanging off the Christmas tree, but whatever it is, your guests will enjoy a lil’ friendly competition - especially if there’s a prize involved.

 

7. Santa Hat Game

The Santa Hat Game is a drinking game for those already worn out from all the Christmas festivities. Place a Santa hat on the corner of your TV screen, and everytime the character looks like he’s wearing the hat? Take a swig of your chosen drink.

Before you know it, all guests will be breaking up into peals of laughter just because it happens so darn often.

 

8. Hidden Gifts Treasure Hunt

This one’s a Christmas classic - a gift exchange that makes sure everyone leaves happy with a wrapped present. A game like Secret Santa will always do well, but you can also consider less commonly played games like a Hidden Gifts Treasure Hunt - kind of like Hide and Seek but with presents.
