5 of the Best Holiday Bingo Games to Play this Festive Season
The festive season is just around the corner, which means that many of us will be preparing for a bit of relaxation, with more time to have fun and play games!
Apart from playing online bingo with numbers, there are several other themed games that you can try for some holiday fun. All of these games are perfect for playing with your housemates or family, and can even be played virtually.
The top 5 bingo-themed games to play these holidays
1. Holiday picture games
Whatever you’re celebrating over the festive season, there are many ways to share the spirit — like playing a game with holiday pictures.
If Santa Claus, snowmen and candy canes resonate with you, there are many different downloadable card templates that you can get online, or you could even create your own! If you celebrate Hanukkah, there are also many templates available with pictures of the menorah and other festival-related symbols.
No matter what images you choose, all you need to do is print out the cards and then start playing!
2. Holiday movie games
If you’re more into trivia and movies, you can also play holiday movie games with a small group of family or friends. There are so many different films that people watch every year over this time, so why not celebrate these and create a bit of a game around them?
Once again, there are many different templates available online that you can download, or you can create your own! The idea is that instead of numbers or images, you need to mark off a movie character, quote or actor/actress on your sheet. But that’s just a starting point.
Depending on how much of a movie buff you are, you can make the game as simple or as complex as you like. What’s more, you can even play the game and watch some of the movies afterwards.
3. “Singo” games
If you like to get a bit more vocal over the holidays, you can also try “Singo”, which will have you singing every time you mark off the title of a song, or lyrics on your sheet.
You could also get creative here and use any songs that you like! These could be Christmas carols, other traditional hymns, or even pop music. The most important thing is just to have fun. Think of it as a form of holiday karaoke!
Even if you don’t think you have a good singing voice, getting to belt out your favourite tunes with some of your closest family and friends is always a good time. Who knows — maybe there could end up being some dancing in your living room too.
4. Festive season games for kids
The holidays are a wonderful time for children. Most of all, being on holiday is about having fun, so this is a great opportunity to introduce your children to some fun bingo games if they haven’t played them already.
Any of the ideas above could be tweaked to be more appropriate for children. Or, you could choose to teach them about different things, perhaps languages, food or other holiday customs around the world, and incorporate these into the game.
If your children are learning to read, this could also be a fun way to get them to practice reading letters in a fun way, even though they might be off from school.
5. Virtual games night
With family and friends scattered all over the world, getting together online to play virtual bingo games could be an entertaining way to spend time together over the holidays.
Why not try some of the games we’ve suggested above? All you need is an internet connection and a video streaming app, such as Skype or Zoom. You could share downloadable holiday game templates over email or chat, or you could even play a round of traditional number bingo using an online random number generator (RNG).
No matter what type of game you decide to play, you can all take turns being the caller. You could even come up with some prizes for the winners, just to add a bit of festive season gift-giving to the occasion. Of course, you might need to wait for your prize to be sent, or you could create a virtual pot using a mobile banking app so that everyone can contribute online.
Regardless of the game you choose to play, and whether you choose to give out prizes or not, this is a great way to get together (even if it’s only virtually) and have fun with all your family and friends over the holiday season.
