Top Christmas Family Games 2019
Nothing is more fun than a good game that all the family can take part in, and Pull My Finger promises plenty of laughs for everyone! Farts always make people chuckle, and this game is no exception! Spin the banana to inflate the Monkey’s butt cheeks, and watch them grow! The aim of the game is to avoid the farts…. Simple rules mean that even younger family members can join in. Get yours for £19.99 (RRP) from Amazon.
Carrying on along the farting theme, Whoopee Doo is another game that promises plenty of laughs for all the family.
The first player sits on the inflated whoopee cushion and presses start – the race is then on to answer the questions or challenges and pass it on before the time runs out! When the time runs out, the person left on the cushion will let out a huge farting noise which causes everyone to erupt in giggles! RRP £22.99. Click here to buy.
Another interactive game to get everyone moving is ‘Shake Off’. The more you shake, the more you score! Another game that is simple to understand – basically you spin the dial, you and your opponent(s) attach the pedometer to whichever body part if specified then move as much as you can in the time allowed. This can get extremely competitive, but is great fun nonetheless! RRP £19.99 but currently £14 at Argos.
Pictionary Air is the latest game with a twist – this time you need a phone or tablet to download the app and away you go! Draw in the air, with the special pen, to have your creation appear on the tablet or phone. Custom Mode and Freestyle Mode let you adapt the play to suit everyone. Adjust the round timer to give younger players more time to draw, change the number of rounds, or go Freestyle for open-ended play with no time limits. RRP £19.99 but currently £15 at Sainsbury’s.
Articulate also bring us a new updated version of the game for Christmas.
With Christmas being the perfect time to get together and spend some quality time with family and friends, a fantastic way to encourage giggles, teamwork and bonding comes from Articulate Phrases. Again, simple rules apple – the team who gets the most phrases right and moves around the board the fastest are the winners! This is more suited to older children and adults however. Get yours here.
For older kids (16 and up) and adults, Escape Room The Game really gets your grey matter working. Play with a group and try to escape from multiple themed rooms before time runs out!
In this challenging and unpredictable game, you have to work together to solve puzzles and find hidden clues. It’s always a race against the clock; you only have 60 minutes to escape. You must work together as a team to solve the riddles and puzzles before the 60 minutes are up! Never has an hour passed so quickly!
RRP £30. Buy from Amazon.
Another hilarious game to partake in this Christmas is World Series Stare Off Official Game. Just as the name dictates, this is a Stare Off game neatly packaged in a box.
You’ll need three players to play, a ref (with the all important red card!) and two players to go head to head. With an official measure guide to ensure that players staring distance is maintained at all times, you are also given a card to try to distract your opponent. RRP £12.99. Buy online here.
