A great way to spread holiday cheer (and a healthy sense of competition) is a holiday trivia game. Use the questions below to see which team of group members knows the most.
Split your group into two or three teams. Print and cut out the following questions, folding them in half and placing them in a bowl. Pull a question out, asking it of one team. Give the team up to 15 seconds to discuss the answer. When the time is up, they must give an answer. If correct, award one point. Then move to the next team.
Play for a designated amount of time or until one team wins by three points. If the teams are tied for an extended amount of time, consider ending with a tie breaker. Have each team select one team member to answer the final question. Hand each designated person a piece of paper and a pen. Have them wager the amount of points they would like. Then ask the question and have the designated team members write down their answers. When the time is up, have the designated members share their answers and the number of points they wagered.
