Tis the Season for Fun:

Top Christmas Games

Are you tired of the same old board games every holiday season? Looking to shake things up and add some cheer to your game night? Why not try out some Christmas-themed board games! Here are our suggestions of exciting options that will get you and your loved ones into the holiday spirit. From classic games with a festive twist to brand-new releases, there is something for everyone on this list. So gather around the table, pour some hot cocoa, and get ready to enjoy these fun Christmas-themed games.

Santa Cookie Elf Candy Snowman

Get ready to deck the halls and have some jolly good fun with the Christmas-themed edition of Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza! This festive variation on an already fantastic game adds even more holiday cheer with a few added twists. You’ll be furiously hand-slapping and trying to wrap your tongue around that hilarious name, but the laughter, bonding, and midnight merriment that awaits you will be worth it.

The rules are simple. As soon as there is a match between a card and a spoken word (Santa, Cookie, Elf, Candy, or Snowman), it’s a race to see who can slap their hand on the central pile of cards first. The last one to do so must take them all, so you’ll need to be quick to get rid of all your cards and come out victorious. But beware – your mind will play tricks on you, making it a challenging and addictive game. With a unique name and a festive twist, this game will surely be a hit at your holiday gatherings.

This game is a great stocking stuffer and easy for the whole family to enjoy. So get your stocking hats and platform shoes ready, and let the festive fun begin with Santa Cookie Elf Candy Snowman!

Merry Dissmas

Every holiday season brings family get-togethers full of laughter, stories, and (most likely) plenty of good-natured bantering. But now there’s a new way to add to the merriment: Merry Dissmas! This game is designed to bring people together for some ribbing in the spirit of the holidays. Players collect points for humorous jabs aimed at one another, but with a laughing twist – rather than hurting feelings, it only further strengthens relationships.

The game is simple to learn and perfect for gatherings of all sizes, as each round only takes a short amount of time. If you’re familiar with Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, you’ll be able to pick up the rules quickly. Each round, you’ll want to play to the judge, the “Dissmater.” What makes this game unique is that the players submit their own answers to the question on the card that the judge drew. In some ways, this is even more fun than Cards Against Humanity.

With Merry Dissmas, you can say goodbye to awkward holiday conversations and hello to hilarious entertainment that everyone will enjoy. So gather your loved ones and get ready to have a merry, diss-filled holiday season with Merry Dissmas!

Ticket To Ride: Nordic Countries

While not directly Christmas-related, Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries still fits the winter holiday vibe. This game plays similarly to the other Ticket to Ride games but with a few new twists and a prominent winter theme. In this game, players must build train routes between cities in Nordic countries to earn points. The board features a map of the Nordic countries, including Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland.

The rules are simple, but the game can be strategic and challenging. The beautiful illustrations of the Nordic landscape add to its appeal, and the new mechanics of tunnels and ferries add an extra layer of strategy. In order to claim some routes, players must use special cards to build tunnels or take ferries across bodies of water. This allows players to plan their routes in new and exciting ways.
In addition to the main game, Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries also includes a solo mode in which players compete against a deck of cards. This mode allows players to practice and hone their skills, and it can also be a fun and challenging way to play the game on your own.

Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries is a fantastic board game that is perfect for fans of the Ticket to Ride series and anyone who loves winter-themed games. We are fans of the Ticket to Ride series and all things Nordic, so this game is an easy win for us. Give it a try and see if it’s the right fit for your holiday game nights!

Welcome to: Winter Wonderland

Continuing the nordic Scandinavian trend, we have The Hygge Game. This game is about bringing people together, enjoying the good things in life, and creating a sense of well-being and coziness. Even the title emphasizes that, though you may not realize it. “Hygge” (pronounced hoo-guh) is a Danish word for this feeling of togetherness. There’s nothing more hygge than sharing a good time with friends and family.
There’s no need to worry about players, winners, or losers. Just gather your friends and family, and let the fun begin! The classic way to play is for a person to draw a card, then have the person on their left answer all three questions. Then that person can draw a card and repeat.
The Hygge Game is a fantastic way to get to know your friends and family better. We have found it’s also a great icebreaker for any gathering. While the Hygge Game may not be directly related to Christmas, what better way to embody the holiday spirit than with a game about togetherness, enjoyment, and creating a sense of well-being?

So why not have a Hygge holiday? We think it’s a great way to bring people together and create truly special moments.
