How to Play Christmas Categories

To play, one player should draw a card (keeping it private from their teammates and read aloud, and in order, the 5 answers to the opposing team. Allow 5 seconds in between answers to give players a chance to confer, buzz in and guess. If the team buzzes in and correctly guesses the Christmas category they score the associated number of points, depending on how many clues they required, and the card is discarded.

If the team buzzes in and gives an incorrect answer they lose one life. Lose two lives and they are frozen out of the card. Play passes to the remaining players in the other team however no more clues are provided. They have one opportunity to guess and will score a bonus 1 point if they answer correctly and steal the card.

Here's an example card :

    • If you correctly answer after just one clue you score the full 5 points.
