It’s a brilliant game to play around the Christmas dinner table – each player puts on a pair of elf glasses, and adds a hat with a name on it. Then the fun begins as you ask questions to decipher who is on the hat! For particularly competitive families who want to make the game a little harder, you could limit the number of questions you’re allowed to ask.
