The carolers have just left and they sang us the most Game-tastic version of the 12 Days of Christmas! It went something like this:
Oh, we do love Uno! With easy to follow rules and a clear win criteria this game is definitely a classic for good reasons! And don’t forget the infinite variability offered by including fun “house rules” and all of the different themed Uno decks! We’re definitely adding this one to our list for Santa!
Quiddler! This game is so much fun and it’s such a sneaky fun way for kids to learn spelling and new words! Played in a series of rounds with more and more cards, starting at three and ending at ten. In each round players attempt to create a word with all but one of their cards in order to end the round and to score the most points! This game is definitely going on our list, too!
Ah, Cockroach Poker! The social deduction game disguised as a quick-playing card game! Stink bugs always get us in trouble because we can’t say, “Stink bug,” without grinning! And that’s a serious giveaway in a game where you’re trying to get your opponents to guess wrong about the card you just slid them! But it’s always fun to play! Santa won’t mind a few stink bugs in his bag!
This one took us a second to remember, but then it struck us like lightning! Zeus on the Loose! The game where you want to have Zeus when you reach the top of Mount Olympus four times to spell his name (like playing H.O.R.S.E in basketball)! Quick math and strategic thinking wins this game every time!
Eureka, the carolers are singing about Dr. Eureka! This game requires logic thinking and good manual dexterity! We love playing this one with as many of our fireflies as we possibly can! Maybe it’s time for another copy! Let’s add it to our list as well!
The Deadlies, is a great game where each suit of cards corresponds to one of the seven deadly sins. You start with six cards in hand and attempt to get rid of them! Then you start with four cards, then two cards, and all the while your opponents are trying to sabotage you and ditch their own cards! Do you think Santa would put us on the Naughty List if we add this one, too?
Animal Upon Animal, in any of its forms (and there are a bunch of them) is a great game for kids and grown ups! Starting with their choice of seven animals, each player will roll the die to find out what to do on their turn. The first player to get rid of all of their animals wins!
Codenames is one of the easiest party games to set up, explain, and play for any size group! We love being the clue master and thinking up those one word and one number clues for our team to use! With EIGHT different versions available everyone is sure to find the right Codenames game for their group!
We love competing to be the best chicken in Crazy Eggz! With nine orange eggs and one super special blue one, competing to grab the most eggs is a cracking good time!
Tenzi is always a crowd pleaser, because who doesn’t love to roll some dice? We love to play it with the 77 Ways to Play Tenzi card pack because it changes what we’re trying to roll every round!
Playing as your favorite Monster, attempt to be declared King of Tokyo by either destroying your enemies or by being the first monster to win themselves twenty fame points! With extra monsters in the form of expansions and a whole new version released this year King of Tokyo Dark, you and your favorite monsters will love it! We’re adding this one to our list for sure!
Gnomes at Night! We love working with our partner to collect all the queen’s stolen treasures! Getting through the maze is always fun, and there are no losers! We really hope Santa has enough room to bring us this one, too!
Wow, those carolers certainly helped us add some great games to our list for Santa! We can’t wait to see what he brings us! Let’s see, the Stockings are Stuffed, the Cookies are Baked, Winter Wonderland has come, and the carolers have serenaded us with the 12 Days of Christmas Gaming!
Merry Christmas from Papa Firefly and all the Fireflies at Firefly Toys and Games!
