Santa’s Hat


Put a Santa hat on the corner of your television and turn on the tv. Every time someone looks like they are “wearing” the Santa hat, DRINK!




While watching Elf, drink every time Buddy screams “SANTA!”, runs into something, or calls his dad. Chug whenever he stuffs his face with candy, sings, or dances.


Easy Games with Little Effort 

Christmas Music Drinking Games


This is a simple one. Get your drinks ready and stream a Christmas radio station. Every time a song says “Christmas”, drink. If Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” comes on, CHUG!

Instagram during the Holidays


Take a sip if someone…

…is kissing their significant other under the mistletoe.

…is posting from a tropical island.

…is at SantaCon or an ugly sweater party.

…poses with their dog dressed in festive garb.

…is in front of the tree in Christmas pajamas.

Chug if someone…

…announces their engagement.

…announces their pregnancy.

Eggnog Pong

Hoboken Irish Row Pub Tour Beer Pong

Set it up just like beer pong, except fill a few cups with eggnog instead of beer.


Card/Dice Games 

(Three) Kings



Its like normal Kings, but holiday edition! If someone draws a 10, you MUST do only Christmas-related categories. Jack calls for Never Have I Ever: Christmas Edition. And Queen? You are only allowed to speak in Christmas song lyrics.

Cards Against Humanity



Although you can play this anytime of the year, it’s sure to liven up the party and get everyone in the family laughing. There is also the Cards Against Humanity Holiday Pack. The Humanity Hates the Holidays Card Game can be incorporated as an expansion pack for the original game, or is fun to be played as a small mini game!
