Christmas Forbidden Words Game Objective
The Christmas taboo game is played with a group of people, this could be friends, family, or even co-workers at your office Christmas party.
The goal of the game is to guess the correct word or phrase that is written on the card.
However, there are certain words or phrases on the game cards that are taboo words and cannot be said.
If the clue giver says the main word or a taboo word, then their team will not receive any points and the other team will get to take their turn.
The game can be played with two or more teams, and each team will take turns trying to guess the correct Christmas words or phrases.
How To Prepare
Before you gather your team members and the game play begins, you will need to:
- grab your printable Christmas Taboo cards from our Etsy store (they are an instant download after purchase)
- print the game
- cut out the taboo game cards
- put all taboo cards in a bowl, hat, or another container
- Gather your Christmas party game participants and get started!
*Helpful tip- if you laminate the Christmas Taboo game cards they will last much longer and you will be able to play the game for more than one party!
How To Play
To start the game, one team member will draw a card from the deck and then read the word or phrase aloud to their team.
This group has 1 minute to guess the correct word or phrase. If they cannot guess it within the time limit, then they will lose their turn and the next team will get to go.
If a person on the team guesses the word or phrase correctly, then they will earn 1 point. The first team to reach 10 points wins the game!
Alternative Game Rules
Feel free to change the rules as needed to accommodate the players.
For instance, if there are young kids, you may want to increase the time limit allowed or have an adult help them explain or describe the taboo word.
