Help! I have friends coming over in a couple of days and it will be 4 families all with teens. I do not have a table big enough to fit everyone round but I do have enough chairs/sofas to seat everyone in a circle. What games can we play? not too boisterous.

I don't mean board games I mean casual or pen and paper games

We played reverse charades at Xmas. Got it for £4 in Debenhams. Everyone loved it.

We played the Heads Up game (mobile app) over Christmas and it was brilliant. Did get a little loud though, but that might just be my family who seem to be incapable of using indoor voices when all together smile

Apple Pie- one person turns away, someone says 'apple pie', person 1 guesses who said it. Lots of fun with silly voices etc.

Cereal box game- box in the middle, pick it up without using hands. Box gets smaller after each turn.



Post it note on the head

I packed my suitcase

Pass the parcel with forfeits

Got to be mean Santa.
Go to the pound shop/Primark/B&M and buy about twenty bits there, wrap and put in Santa sack. You can save money by adding any unwanted gifts you already have to the sack instead. We usually put a £10 note in a box and wrap that too.You do need to have one or two "better" things for the game to work properly.
Now all take turns to roll the dice. If you get a six you take a present from the sack and unwrap it for all to see. If you throw a one then you are entitled to steal someone elses present and so it goes on until all the presents are gone. Teens in particular love this game and it is very amusing to watch who steals what from whom-can be very funny indeed!
