Christmas Games For Adults

3. White Elephant Gift Exchange ~  Every year I look forward to our annual White Elephant gift exchange party.  Julie, our host, prints out this Gift Exchange Poem to spice things up a bit.

4. Two Truths and a Lie Game ~ Two Truths and a Lie is a popular ice breaker game.  In the game, a person tell three stories about themselves, two of which are true, and one that is not.  The goal of the player is to determine which story is not true.  You can play this in a Christmas party setting in a group with the theme topic of “their worst Christmas gift”.

5.  What If / Then Game ~ Everyone gets in a circle and is given two pieces of paper and a pen.  On the first paper each guest writes down any “What If” question.  Collect all of those papers into a bowl.

Next, pass out the “What If” questions and  have each guest write the “Then” answer to that specific question onto their second piece of paper.  Have each guest put their “What If” question into one bowl and the “Then” answer into a second bowl.

Now it’s time to read them Mad Lib style.  Have each guest take 1 paper from the “What If” bowl and 1 paper from the “Then” bowl.  Take turns going around in a circle and reading the two papers back to back:  What If / Then!  It’s hysterical and a great crowd pleasure.

If you have smaller children you could tape/glue the shapes to card board and eliminate the usage of thumb tacks.
