What games are fun to play when the family gets together for the holidays?


Our family seems to like "Shut the Box" - a dice game that doesn't require concentration. We put quarters in and the winner gets the quarters. This isn't a game, but one year my Aunt Marion made up short poems about each person with little gag gifts. (My cousin's boyfriend got a pair of worn out tennis shoes because he was always hitchhiking from a Marine base to see my cousin). I made Santa clothes pins last year and we played drop Santa into the bottle. What are your favorite holiday family get-together games and/or activities?

    I think we might give that a try this holiday. I've forgotten about that game and it will bring back good memories. Thanks, toytasting. BTW...do you review online games too? I invented Presidential Solitaire/no numbers and I have other online game

    I don't know Snack and ladder or Dam. I'll have to check. Thanks for the ideas. You mean "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" I love trivia games - the family not so much. We do like "Scene It" but we play it our way - simply without the board

    Haven't played that in years. Maybe we'll give that a try this year! Thanks so much Sheila!
