Well, there’s no snow where the Fireflies live, but we’re still enjoying the Winter Wonderland weather! And these games are the perfect addition to any night-in away from the cold!
First up are the classic games Monopoly and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Operation, but with a twist that will make you say “Son of a Nutcracker!” Monopoly Elf features beautiful Christmas themed pawns and a board that will make it impossible not to think of everyone’s favorite Elf,
while Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Operation is the classic silly-skill game themed in beautiful Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer style! Can you successfully remove all of the toys, sore teeth, and spare Christmas decorations from poor Bumble the Abominable Snowman? It’ll take skill to get everything without making Bumble roar!
You’ll need to think strategically for the next four games: Race to the North Pole, Ticket to Ride Nordic Countries, Snowtime, and Funkoverse Nightmare Before Christmas. Race to the North Pole is an ever-changing strategy game! Players attempt to be the first to move all members of their team to the North Pole to claim victory over their opponents and their place in history!
Claim your Ticket to Ride through the Nordic Countries in this version of the classic train game! Complete train lines and ferry routes to win the most points and the game! But pay extra attention to your opponents, or you’ll end up blocked, and iced out of completion!
It’s Snowtime in your village which means it’s time for the annual fruit collecting, snowball dodging festival! Can you collect the most fruit as it randomly appears, or will you be stymied by your opponents? Play as your favorite Nightmare before Christmas character and use their special abilities to earn points through four different scenarios! Be the player with the most points at the end of the game to win! Combine
this game with any of the other Funkovese Strategy games (may we suggest Funkoverse Golden Girls, or Funkoverse Harry Potter) to create the perfect team for you!
Speaking of Harry Potter, it’s the most Magical Time of the year, which makes it the perfect time to return to Hogwarts! No matter your house, you’re sure to enjoy these Harry Potter-themed board games!
First up are our classic board games with a magical twist: Harry Potter Clue, Harry Potter Labyrinth and Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit. Each of these classic board games feature Harry Potter themes and Potterverse twists! In Harry Potter Clue, you'll be
playing as your favorite witch or wizard to solve the mysteries in the ever-changing Hogwarts Castle! As the game progresses, you’ll find the rooms switching places, and the secret passages will take you to different destinations! In Harry Potter Labyrinth,
you’ll be navigating the maze in hopes of finding your favorite Harry Potter characters and powerful magical artifacts! But as with all Labyrinth games, beware the ever-changing nature of the maze! Are you a true Potterhead? Can you win against your
opponents in Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit? Featuring over 1800 questions about your favorite witches, wizards, spells, magical creatures, and magical artifacts and Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Hufflepuff movers, this game is a surefire way to prepare for your NEWTs! Other Harry Potter-themed games that are sure to cast
a spell on you are Munchkin Harry Potter Deluxe, Codenames Harry Potter, Spot It Harry Potter, and Harry Potter Death Eaters Rising!
If what you’re really looking for are original Harry Potter Games we also love Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: A Cooperative Deck Building Game and Harry Potter House Cup Competition. In Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle, you and your team play as your favorite witches and wizards and work through seven successively more challenging years defending Hogwarts from the forces of evil.
In Harry Potter House Cup Competition, you will need to strategically place your students and manage your lessons to successfully complete challenges to win points for your House. Earn the most House points before the great End of Year feast to have your house declared the House Cup Champion!
These next two recommendations aren’t stand-alone games, but they are fabulous holiday additions to any Winter Wonderland Game Night! Make your next Catan game Christmassy by adding the Santa Claus Scenario to your next session! Gather extra wool and get it to old Saint Nick to get presents and even protection from the pesky robber with this add-on!
Santa’s Renegades is a fantastic collection of promo items for your favorite Renegade games! It includes a 7-card pack for Lotus, 1 promo tile for Lanterns: The Harvest, a double-sided track with the Dangerous Pit on one side and the Narrows on the other for Snow Tails, and the Dire Wolf Promo Card for Clank!
Maybe what you prefer is a longer, more cooperative game. (Well, mostly cooperative.) Work with your team to reach the highest peak in the Mountains of Madness! Try to stay sane and dodge those insanity cards as the stark, strange things you find slowly creep into your subconscious. Play your cards right, and with a good roll of the dice, you’ll all make it through!
Lead your faction, work with your teammates and their factions, and accomplish your secret goals in Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game! Be careful to collect enough supplies and keep morale high to get your colony through the Dead of Winter! Take care, though, everyone’s goals may not be so helpful!
And finally, for our truly grown-up gamers, revisit a wintertime horror classic playing The Shining Escape from the Overlook Hotel: A Coded Chronicles Game. Can you escape the Overlook Hotel playing as Wendy and Danny before the hotel itself or Jack manage to keep you captive here forever? Will you be able to solve the puzzles and use the skills available to you, or will you be trapped here?
Well, it looks like it's going to be another cold, cold night here! We’re gonna make some cocoa and snuggle up with one of these fantastic Winter Wonderland Games and maybe sing some carols! Speaking of carols, check back soon for our next Holiday themed blog The Twelve Days of Gaming!
