We’ve all been there, eaten so much Christmas dinner, mince pies and even squeezed in that wafer thin after dinner mint that it’s painful to move. Don’t let that stand in the way of your festivities, here are some low-impact, minimal movement games that you can play after your over indulgence this year!
STICKIT TO ‘EM A sneaky game that you can play over the course of an entire evening. Everyone has some stickers (a different shape or colour per person) and the challenge is to stick them on people without them noticing. Get stealthy and use up all of your stickers to be the first to win.
ALPHABET STORY Make up a story with each word beginning with each letter of the alphabet (in the right order) e.g. ‘Anne Brown Came Down Every Friday..etc’ You can either make a story each and share them, or each player adds the next word!
SAUSAGES One person is the questioner. They ask each person in turn a question. Whatever the question the answer must always be ‘SAUSAGES’. The aim of the questioner is to get everyone out by making them laugh. The last person in becomes the next questioner. ADVERBS Whenever anyone leaves the room to grab a drink or another mince pie, everyone in the room decides on a word to describe their behaviour, for example ‘angrily’, ‘sleepily’, ‘funnily’. Everyone in the room whenever they speak or do something must behave this way. Keep playing until the person who left the room guesses what you’re all doing.
If you find yourself sat around a table, why not give some games a go. Some of our favourites are:
EXPLODING KITTENS: £19.99 An easy card game of tactics and revenge. Be the last person standing by avoiding the exploding kittens. Your loving family will show their true colours and rampant mean streaks with so much hilarity!
CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY: £25.00 A game only to be played by those of dubious character. Wrong humour at its most hilarious. Certainly not to be played by anyone under 18 or those of a sensitive demeanor!
PIE FACE: £15.99 Take turns risking the peril of getting a face full of whipped cream or shaving foam!
After you’ve rested off that dinner, why not laugh and boogie away those pie calories by playing...
THE TISSUE BOX BOP This hilarious party game takes some prep work but it is worth it. For each participant you’ll need: •an empty rectangle tissue box •about 10 ping pong balls •string or ribbon
Thread the string or ribbon through each box so that you will be able to tie it around the waist of the players. Next fill each box with the ping pong balls and you’re ready.
here comes the fun part... Tie the tissue box belts around each players waist, making sure the tissue box is in the back. Put on some music and let the players shake their booties to the music. Touching the box with your hands or help from others is not allowed. The object of the game is to be the first to bop all your balls out.
