Christmas Trivia Game About Santa
If you love Christmas and need a Christmas trivia game for an upcoming Christmas party, here's a fun one to try.
If you would like to try this game out before using with friends and family, try it yourself first, but no peeking at the answers until you are finished answering each question.
Pass out a piece of paper and a pencil or pen to each player.
Read the questions one at a time and ask people to write down their answers.
Give ample time between each question so people have time to think and write their answers.
Before revealing the answers, ask anyone if they need a question read again before the answers are read.
Reveal the answers one at a time by rereading the question and then reading the answer.
Ask people to add up their correct answers, and if you think you have a few who might cheat, ask people to exchange answer sheets with the person next to them before revealing the answers.
Give a prize to the person who got the most right. Have a few prizes ready in case there is a tie.
