Christmas family games are a fantastic way to relax, bond and have fun around the table at Christmas time. It is so refreshing for family and friends to get together without electronic devices and have some good old-fashioned fun. If that’s with a board game, playing charades, or blasting out some tunes on the karaoke.

Since 1985, Pictionary has been bringing families and friends together with quick sketches and hilarious guesses. Draw a clue card, sketch it out and get your teammate to guess it — the rules are simple but the competition is fiercely fun!
I can remember as a child starting this game off with “Is it a man or a woman” I can still hear the 6-year-old me saying this whilst staring across from my big sister. This is a fantastic game as it requires minimal set-up and is a fantastic starting game for young children.
Each player chooses a mystery character card and then using yes or no questions they try to figure out the other player’s mystery person This edition features character art and most character names not seen in other editions such as hat-wearing Sam Amy with glasses and Al with the big white beard! Challenge opponents to a series of games or up the challenge by not asking if the mystery person is a boy or a girl until the third turn The Guess Who? game is a great indoor activity for kids ages 6 and up
The original guessing game Guess Who goes back to the tabletop style boards, styled after the original, rather than handheld boards. Each player chooses a mystery character and then using yes or no questions, they try to figure out the other player s mystery character. When they think they know who their opponent’s mystery character is, players, make a guess. If the guess is wrong, that player loses the game! Players can also challenge opponents to a series of games in the Championship Series, where the first player to win 5 games is the Guess Who? champion.
