Christmas is all about spending quality time with the family – and there’s no better way of bringing everyone together than by playing a classic game.

Here are 5 favourites to enjoy after your Christmas pudding.



This classic murder mystery board game has been keeping families entertained since 1949.

Each player assumes the role of 1 of the 6 suspects of a murder committed in an English country house.

By moving around the board players gather clues in a bid to work out the identity of the murderer, the room in which it took place, and the weapon that was used.


Christmas Charades

Give this popular word-guessing game a festive twist by using Christmas phrases, film names and song titles.

Players give clues using a series of hand gestures, with points being awarded for guessing the correct answer.

You’ll need 4 or more players, a pen and paper, and a timer. 

Forehead detective

This detective game involves writing the name of a famous person on a post-it note and sticking it on the forehead of the person next to you.

Each player then takes it in turns to ask a series of yes/no questions to try and work out who they are.

Names can be of fictional characters as well as real life celebrities.


Santa Belly Limbo

Do your best Father Christmas impression and do the limbo Santa style with this fun party game.

Put a pillow down your t-shirt to recreate a ‘Santa belly’ and see if you can squeeze underneath the limbo stick.

Help players get into the mood by putting on some classic Christmas tunes.


Originally developed in the US in 1971, this classic card game is quick and easy to learn.

Every player views their cards and tries to match the card in the discard pile.

The aim of the game is to score 500 points by getting rid of all your cards.
