At The Christmas Game, we think that a move away from video games and toward the kind of parlor games common in the 19th century will make for better family time and a more satisfying Christmas celebration.

Parlor-style games allow people of all ages to directly interact with each other in a way that is fun, challenging, and often educational.

Reviving old parlor games is a good idea, but there are plenty of new games that are every bit as fun and interactive.

Below are twenty Christmas games that we think are wonderful fun for family events and may be a great part of your annual Christmas Game. Click through to find descriptions and rules.
