The Very Merry Christmas Game

 If you love board games just as much as you love Christmas, let us introduce you to this gem. The aim of the game is to get hold of the best presents for your stocking.

Cracker cards will let you pinch a better present from someone else’s stocking, but you need to beware of the sprout cards. It’s the perfect Christmas board game.

Pass The Pugs

This is basically just an update on the classic Pass The Pigs game – but with pugs! The aim of the game is to roll the pugs and be the first to get to 100 points and become top dog. The positions the pugs land in determine how many points you get, so if they land in a wacky position, you’ll score more points. Also, Pass the Pugs comes with all new positions, including ‘pooped out’, ‘puppy love’ and ‘faceplant’.

Cluedo Liars Edition Game from Hasbro Gaming

If a player suspects they’re lying, they can call that player out by hitting the Liar Button.

Articulate is a great option if you’re in lockdown with a house full of flatmates and are at a loss about what to do. Split into teams (can be pairs), and take it in turns to make it around the board the quickest. To play, one person from each team must describe the word in the given category on their card without saying it, before doing as many as possible, within the time frame.

Monopoly Deal is like Monopoly, only an updated (and arguably better…) version. There is no board, but instead you play with cards and it’s fairly quick. Each player gets five cards and picks up two from the pack when it’s their turn, and can play three cards onto the table at a time. The winner is the first player to have three full property sets in front of them. As you play, Action cards mean you can steal property from other players, or charge them rent, while different properties have different values. It sounds complicated, but it’s not once you get going.
