This weekend, we will have a Christmas party/ family reunion and my relatives assigned me to be the game master. I've already thought of some games like amazing race, singing contest (videoke challenge), and Oppa Gangnam Style dance contest. What other exciting games can we play that could include people from various age groups?

We used to play a game called 'pass the orange'. It is placed under the chin and passed from person to person without using your hands. It's really fun to play and even funnier to watch.

Wow! That sounds fun! And, the materials needed for the game are easy to find. Maybe we can replace orange with apple or something softer (Kiwi? Raw egg?), lol. Thanks a lot! That's a great idea! :)

An orange works best. It's the right size, texture, and softness. An apple is to hard and slippery, and a raw egg would, no doubt, get real messy.

Yeah! Oranges fit too well that's why I thought of apples or eggs, it would be too challenging to use those things, lol.

Well, I remember in my childhood, when Christmas brought together all the various relatives, the classic game suitable for such holiday, it was the Tombola. You know, I think that today, with the advent of new technologies and more sophisticated games, folders of bingo are now being put in the attic. I believe that one of the games you mentioned, perhaps the Karaoke is something that will involve and entertain everyone. This is my idea.

Oh, we just played that in our office Christmas party! That's really exciting! Unfortunately, we don't have bingo set in our family but that's one fun game! Thank you for sharing it!:)

Pin the tail on the donkey, thats a very good game for all ages and its fun to see where the tail ends up and how far away from the bottom the tail ends. I know you will all have such a lot of fun at your party... can we all come please?

You can try Cheese Rings Games. Actually, it's one of the Sunday School Games. Lol. They have to get the cheese rings using their straws/spoons/anything put in their mouths. It is a relay game. So the idea is there. The group who gets the most cheese rings will win. They can get as many cheese rings they like. It's hard to be a master in this game because children keeps on eating every cheese ring. Lol.

You definitely should leave out the game "Pinoy Henyo". It's lots of fun! You may also want to try common games like charades, name that tune, etc. If you want you can change the mechanics of the game to make it more interesting or challenging. However you play them, just don't forget to have fun. Merry Christmas!

Hi! I am sure that your relatives would enjoy all the games that you have for them. Why not try out some of the games from the show "Minute To Win It". I am sure it would add more excitement to the whole crowd.

Wow, I'm really jealous of you, right now. I have always wanted something like this with our own clan. Somehow, people get too busy with their own lives that they forget about things like this. You are lucky to have a family who still care about having a big celebration and have lots of fun together. For the kids, you can have a simple - Find Me, game.

It would be another fun Christmas party for you all. An apple eating contest would be a great game along with paper plate dance. We had done that last time with my friends in the beach (only eight of us actually) and we draw so much fun out of it. That was the best moment with my friends. We did also exchanging of gifts.
