In the interest of being less hermet-like in 2014, we're having a few friends in for pizza, beer and games next weekend. Unfortunately we have only a deck of cards and Risk in the house. I refuse to be drawn into a charades-related fiasco, so I'm looking for your favourite board games. Thanks!
5 second rule!! Its a kids game you can get it in smiths! You pick a card say name a band that starts with a so u go around everyone keeps going til theres a repeat or blank gets very funny after a few drinks! Its a must in our house at Christmas!!!
We LOVE a good games night in this house! So cheap and cheerful and great for a laugh! Trivial pursuit is the firm favourite and can last hours.
Someone brought telestrations a while back and Half of us thought it was great craic after a few drinks but others thought it was too silly.
Cranium, Articulate, Humbug, Trival Pursuit, Family Fortunes and Catchphrase are a few of our favourites, along with Monopoly and the Pointless one is good fun too..
My husband bought me '30 seconds' (the Irish edition) for Christmas and it was a great hit Christmas night,so much so my 25 year old bro borrowed it for new years eve with his friends. Great fun with a few drinks,you get a card with five names of things and have 30s to get them to guess the words by describing.
Big fans of Cranium here...
Love cranium here too!
Cranium and family fortunes are favourites here too
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have a look in Smyths and see what I can get. I think the mother has Trivial Pursuit and maybe Cluedo so I might borrow them and pick up one or two others. DH is threatening to teach us how to play 25. I know he has tried to teach me before, but it's a bit of a deathmatch playing in his house on Christmas Eve, so my blackened shins have me worried!
Linkee is a new one my sis got at Christmas. 4 questions on a card and the 4 answers are linked somehow & you have to guess the link. Went down well in ours.
