Christmas drinking games for a festive bucks party

1. Santa’s sack

Christmas is a time of giving, so you’d be remiss for the bucks party to not spread a bit of Christmas cheer.  There is a bit of prep work for this Christmas drinking game. You need to write a bunch of challenges and cheers on pieces of paper, wrap them up in two different colours – one for the buck and one for the crew – stick a bow on top and stick them all in a sack.

The game works best when the bucks party is out an about, but its still fun at a house party.  Every 15 minutes or so, the buck, dressed as Santa, pulls a present out of the sack. If its the buck’s colour, he opens it himself. If its the crew’s colour, the bucks party crew member closest to the buck opens it. Read the instruction and get on with delivering it.

Make it fun with challenges that can be seen to escalate quickly… like buy a round of drinks for the bucks party crew to group challenges of breaking out the sprinkler moves for the next song on the dance floor, to getting a girl’s underwear within the … the only limitation is your imagination!

2. Celebrity Santa hat

Nothing looks better than wearing a Santa hat at Christmas time, but its shame that not enough celebrities get into the spirit. This sneaky game lets you pop a hat on your favourite celebrity and then the buck party crew gets to celebrate the success.

First up, put a Santa hat on the corner of your TV.  Load up your favourite movie (lord forbid it be a p0rn0). Every time someone in the movie ‘wears’ the Santa hat, the crew takes a drink.

3. Santa pub crawl

Dress ups are fun. I mean who doesn’t like to become someone else for a night and let their hair down under their new persona? Well, in what could be one of the ultimate Christmas Drinking Games, get the bucks party crew to don on a Santa suit, set the pub crawl route and get drinking. Simple, festive and very bucks party-ish. Just make sure you remember to stay hydrated.

4. 12 days of Christmas

This is an awesome drinking game to spread over the night. Make a mini-advent calendar with a drink behind each door. Every half an hour, or when ever you remember, open one of the doors to reveal the buck’s surprise drink.

5. Rock’n round the Christmas tree

It’s the time of year when Christmas trees are everywhere, so why not prove they’re more than just an ornament and turn them into a Christmas drinking game. This is a great drinking game to play on a pub crawl…

Every time the bucks party passes a Christmas tree everyone has to start dancing around it. The last one to dance drinks or buys a round for the crew. Time to polish up on your Disco Stu moves.
