Christmas Party Games for You and Your Loved One!
Ahh… December is finally here! As the weather is getting colder and the ‘All I Want for Christmas’ started playing pretty much everywhere, it is now the perfect time to plan on how to spend your Christmas eve. Unlike the years before, Christmas this year will be quite different due to the pandemic and the needs for social distancing. For those of you who are unable to join your extended family or pretty much stuck with your roommate, we are here to cheer you up! We’ve gathered some of our favorite Nintendo titles that are perfect for your mini Christmas party games!
Mario Kart 8 Delux
The first one in our list of Christmas party games is none other than the classic Mario Kart! Ever since it was first released back in 1992, the game has managed to win the hearts of many. From the beloved characters to the iconic Rainbow Road that many love to hate, this game is more casual compared to other racing games as skill is not the only factor in winning the race. Careful tho! The blue shell here MIGHT destroy your friendship!
Super Smash Bros Ultimate
From Kirby to Link to Mario, this game got many of your favorite games characters. This multiplayer game allows up to 8 players, making it one of our favorite Christmas party games out there. Since this is a fighting game, this also means that you can unleash your pent up emotion and beat up your annoying family member. In fact, we highly recommend you to make sure you hit hard enough that your opponent stopped moving. Just make sure you’re doing that in game tho!
Super Mario Party
You know what they say! A party is not a party without Super Mario Party. Although the game only allows up to 4 players, this game is our top pick for a Christmas party game. Unlike the rest of the games in our list, this one IS created as a party game. If you have no idea what Super Mario Party is, just imagine a board game with tons of adorable mini games in it. The simple, short, and kids friendly mini games make this one a perfect Christmas party game for those who got kids or just want to have a good laugh with friends.
Animal Crossing: New Horizon
One of the biggest problems for many of us right now is whether or not we could afford to own a house. Worry not cause we can sure have one in Animal Crossing! The premise of the game is simple. You are moving to a new area and work your way up until you can afford a house. In their newest addition, Animal Crossing: New Horizon, you can visit your friends’ island. So even if you are thousands of miles apart, you can still visit each other and celebrate Christmas together. This sweet feature is one of the reasons why we put it in our Christmas party game.
So based on our recommendations, which Christmas party games that fit the most for you? A racing game with a possibility of a broken friendship? A fighting game where you can unleash your pent up emotion? A cute party game that even kids can do? Or a sweet game where you can visit your loved ones?
