Happy Holidays! At this time of year, you tend to improve your mood, rejuvenate your habits and look at life with more optimism, forgetting for a while the daily tasks and worries. At the same time, it is also that time when you make efforts to strengthen family ties. But, above all, it is a time to enjoy and have fun together. When the family gets together, it is very fun to do some activity or game all together, to have a good time in the company of the whole family.
Here are a few ideas for you to play and have fun with your family during the holidays and make this a memorable time to remember for a long time with your relatives:
1. Ex Libris
Ex libris begins with someone picking a book off the shelf. This person will have the role of judge or referee during the game. First, the judge reads the first sentence of the book aloud to give a small impression of what the book is about. The next thing is for each participant to imagine what the last sentence of the book is going to be, and everyone, except the judge, write it on paper and leave that note on a hat or in a basket.
For his part, the judge will copy this last sentence from the book on a similar sheet and also leave it on the hat. Then all the sentences will be read aloud, and people will have to vote on what they think is the sentence that actually corresponds to the end of the book. Whoever gets it right, or whoever gets it right, gets a point. Then, the game is repeated alternating the roles, until all the participants have been judges. In the end, the game is won by the one with the most points or, in other words, by the one with the most final sentences in the books.
3. Lie detector
A good game to enjoy around a table. Each of the participants will have to share with the rest three facts or personal data, but only two of them are true. The rest of the players will have to interrogate him to find out which things are true and which things are lies. In the end, the truths and lies are discovered and you see who has succeeded the most.
4. Memory game
Collect some items by placing them on a tray. Cover the tray with a cloth and take it to the crowd. Show the articles to the audience for a certain time (30 seconds is better) and ask them to memorize the article. Remove the tray and ask the audience to write the articles they remember. The player who writes the most correct items wins.
One of the participants chooses a random word and says it out loud. Then the rest of the participants have to write an acronym telegram about the advertised word. For example, if the word is Holidays, the first sentence has to start with an H. The message has to take the form of a telegram and also be related to the word being played on.
With the participants sitting around the table, you choose a very specific topic. For example, Disney movies. The one who plays the shower will think of a concrete example within the chosen theme and write it down on a piece of paper. Then, he fills a cup with water and goes past each participant with the cup on his head, asking for other examples of the selected theme. To the participant who says the same example that he has chosen previously, he will take a shower with the cup of water. Then, the shower becomes the shower, and the game continues again.
