Santa Banter


 Put on your Christmas jumper and get ready to rhyme your brand new socks off

Just like it’s big brother Obama Llama, Santa Banter contains all sorts of ridiculous rhymes – except this time, it fits nicely in a stocking and is absolutely drenched in Christmas spirit.

From “The Three Wise Men visiting Big Ben” to “Santa’s hat in a cowpat”, your job is to describe as many rhymes as you can whilst your team tries to guess them. You’ve got 30 seconds… think you can find the rhyme in time?



Three rhyming rounds

Gather round the table (or wherever it is that you spend December 25th) and split your friends and family up into two teams. Spread the Rhyming Pair Cards in the middle and choose a team to start.

One player from the starting team rolls the dice. If it’s pink, take an Act It card. If it’s green, take a Describe It card. If it’s yellow, take a Solve It card.

The starting player now has 30 seconds to get their team to shout out as many rhymes as they can.

On each card, there’s three Christmass-y rhymes, and each type of card has different rules. In Describe It, you can’t use any of the words on the card, in Solve It, you can only read the riddle in bold, and in Act It, you have to mime your rhyme!

As soon as the 30 seconds is up, it’s time to add up your scores. For every three rhymes your team got right, you’ll get to turn over two Rhyming Pair cards to try and find a match.

When you’re done, it’s time for the next teams turn. Keep going back and forth until all the Rhyming Pair cards have been found. The team with the most at the end of the game, wins!
