So with Christmas around the corner, I was thinking of hosting a small party for a few friends (mostly non-gamers, although they enjoy playing board games sometimes).

In that respect, we are considering having a Christmas theme board game session as well. Problem is, I don't think I have any such games like that, other than Zooloretto's Christmas mini-expansions.

Does anyone have any good Christmas themed board games to recommend?

Thought I could help you and then I saw you are specifically looking for "good" Christmas themed board games. whistle

EDIT: Maybe you could check out Christmas themed PnP games.

You can make your own Christmas themed version of Wits & Wagers. I think there might even be Christmas questions in the forum or files section.

Haha! Well, "good" is subjective, and I'm a pretty omnivorous gamer, so I'm open to any suggestions.. But preferably not PnP because I'm terribly at arts and craft!

Thanks for all the replies everyone! The Secret Santa collection was also very comprehensive.

I also thought of one myself - GiftTRAP

By far, one of the most popular games at our Christmas Eve party has been Penguin Pile-Up.

I did Kickstart 12 Days, and I'm hoping it will be popular this year as well.

I also picked up Munchkin Reindeer Games during one of Miniature Market's October clearances, but I'm not sure how it will go over.

I've done a couple of Christmas themed playsets for Fiasco if you are willing to stretch a little bit beyond board games.

Holly Jolly! (based on Rankin/Bass holiday specials)
Miracle in Bedford Falls (based on traditional Christmas movies)

White Elephant is a good Christmas themed game.

It would not be overly useful unless it were a small group, but Ticket to Ride Nordic Countries certainly looks Christmas-y.

Hey That's My Fish is at least cold weather oriented.

Or you could just get out Game of Thrones and if anyone says anything just look them right in the eye and say "Winter is Coming".
