Let us discuss some in a little more details.
1] Santa’s Bag
This is a very simple game, where you, as an Elf, have to make gifts for children. So the game starts with Santa Claus reading out gifts from his list. Elves must build and find the parts to create it. Also, they can trade with their other Elf partner for parts or can use Eleven Magic to make their part.
More tricky the toy, the more points you can earn. And if you build toys for good children, it will help you to win extra points. The player having the highest points will be the winner. Most likely, 2-8 players can play this game.
2] Letters to Santa
This board game is the popular Christmas themed version of the love letter game. To make sure that all your wishes come true, you have to send your letter to Santa in this game.
You have to be clever with your two cards, when it’s your turn, as there are wily Krampus in your way as hurdles waiting to fail you in your mission. The faster you get close to Santa, the more chances are there for you to win. Usually, 2-4 players can play the game.
3] Crappy Birthday
If you have your birthday in the month of December, then this game will make your birthday as well as Christmas more special. More than winning or losing this game; it is all about fun and interesting conversations.
Here, you will be handed some gift cards each by your co-players. Your job is to shuffle them and then turn over all the cards one by one. And then pick the most “crappy” gift that you dislike. The player whose gift you choose gets the point. The first player to win 3 points is claimed as the winner.
4] Munchkin Christmas Lite
This game is not very different from any treasure hunting game. The only difference is that, rather than following the clues, you will have to defeat the monsters to gather your treasure. Interestingly, you could even kill your friends and steal their stuff as well.
All you have to do is to kill whoever comes in your way, take your treasure and run away to win. This exciting game can be played by 3-6 players.
5] Zombie Town: The Christmas Evil
It is a 10 round game where the player must be very lucky while drawing cards to survive. Only the player who has any health left wins. Other than him/ her, everybody dies. This is a fun compiled action game that can be played by 3-6 players.
Apart from the above-mentioned Christmas themed tabletop games, there are other board games like Say Anything, Wits and Wagers, Broom Service: Christmastime, etc. So, this Christmas you must try out these new adventurous games and make the day more fun and joyful with your family and friends.
