Far harder than it looks, Pindaloo will have the entire family hooked! All you have to do is loop the ball from one end of the tube to the other, which takes more skill than you might think. But soon enough, even your youngest niece will be throwing in tricks and flicks to showboat!

7Scrawl Game, £21.95£21.95

Disastrous doodling

A hilarious game that exposes the questionable artists in the family. Each player starts with a clipboard and a scenario card – once you’ve drawn what’s on your card, you pass the board along and the next player has to guess what you were trying to draw. Then, the next player along has to draw the previous player’s guess! It’s not long before things descend into chaos – there’s no better way to create some hilarious seasonal memories.

Forget the Quality Streets

Challenge your family to the ultimate survival game with this creepily realistic game. With 9 gummy bug-shaped sweets, ranging from maggots to scorpions, you have to eat whichever the spinner lands on. You might get a sweet strawberry surprise, or a horrible curry shock! Either way, make sure you play this one after your Sunday lunch.

9What’s In The Box?, £12.95£12.95

Buy Now

Calling all family detectives!

This game doesn’t just involve the whole family – it includes the entire house! One player hides an item from around the house in the box, and the rest of the family have to work out what’s inside. Shake and listen, or ask up to 21 yes or no questions – but absolutely no peeking! This one is addictive and frustrating – especially when they’ve picked something from your own room.

10Are You Dumber Than A Box Of Rocks?, £12.95£12.95

Buy Now

Now this is a real test…

This one’s for the relative that turns up to the family gathering armed with general knowledge – they may be smart, but are they smarter than a box of rocks? With every answer being either 0, 1, or 2, pick your answer and then shake the box of numbered rocks to receive their answer. For the trivia-obsessed and the self-proclaimed quizmasters, this present game is a hilarious challenge!
