What It Is
Turn Christmas competitive with the game Christmas Charades. In this game, teams of players compete to correctly guess charades, win cards for doing so, and be the first team to 10 cards. The game comes with 220 cards that all have wintry and holiday-themed words and phrases on them. On your team's turn, have one player draw a card and begin to act out what's on the card. It could be Santa Claus, popcorn strings, or Tickle Me Elmo. Standard rules of Charades apply, such as no talking or making noises. Each card tells you how many seconds you have: 15, 30, or 60 seconds. (A timer is not included, so you'll need to provide your own in order to keep track of the time.) If a team guesses what's on the card within the time limit, they win the card. If not, discard the card and it's the next team's turn.
Is It Fun?
If you've got a family game night planned during the holiday season, then Christmas Charades should definitely be on your list of games to play. It's the classic game of Charades but with a holiday twist. Among all the cards listing Christmas songs, Christmas movies, and typical holiday and winter fare, you've also got some pretty fun things to act out, such as “turducken”, “stuck in the chimney”, and “enormous Visa bills”. This is going to be a fun game for the whole family to play together and it is sure to create some new and humorous holiday memories.
Who It’s For
Christmas Charades is for four or more players ages 8 and up. It's going to be fun for people who enjoy playing Charades and for people who celebrate Christmas. There are a variety of topics on the cards, which means that the whole family can play this one together.
What To Be Aware Of
A stopwatch or timing device is not included, so you'll need to provide your own to keep track of how much time a team has to guess.
A card game version of Christmas Charades is also available and sold separately. It comes packaged in a more travel-friendly and stocking-stuffer size.
