All the presents have been opened and the last of the turkey has been eaten. As you move onto your Christmas pudding, there may be a discussion on what games will be played after dessert. To help give you some ideas, we provide a list of games that you may enjoy this Christmas.


Labelled as "The Game for Your Whole Brain", Cranium is the perfect after dinner game that will last the whole night. The game is for 4 or more players and allows you to team up against each other to see who can overcome the variety of challenges put in front of you. Cranium is the perfect mix of popular games such as Charades, Trivial Pursuit and Pictionary.

The aim of the game is quite simple: Get your partner to guess as many of the words from a particular category written on the card, within the 30 second time limit. However, the game isn’t easy as it sounds as you are only allowed pass once per go. So, if you don’t know how to articulate two or more words on the card, your turn is over.

€18.99. Available from World of Wonderful Toys and other retailers.

Speak Out

Speak Out is a hilarious game which involves a mouth piece and a deck of cards. Players draw a card from the deck and try to read the phrase while wearing a mouthpiece that prevents you from pronouncing words correctly. Speak Out is for 4-5 players and is suitable for both kids and adults.

€22.99. Available from Art & Hobby and other retailers.

5 Second Rule Game

This game is all about quick thinking and fast talking. Players must draw from the deck of cards and try to name 3 things from a particular category i.e. name three flavours of ice cream. Does that sound too easy? Well the 5 second time limit in which you have to name the 3 things will put you under plenty of pressure.

€11.99. Available from Smyths and other retailers.

From everyone here at Chill, we hope you have a very Happy Christmas and hopefully you can enjoy some of the mentioned games above.
