The Christmas jumbler is a fun game that can be enjoyed by both the adults and the kids. It doesn’t provide too much of a headache either, which is always beneficial after a couple of alcoholic beverages. To play the Christmas jumbler you have to take words related to Christmas and rearrange all of the letters so that the words become scrambled. A great topic to start on is Christmas pudding ingredients. Simply jumble up the words of each ingredient and watch as your family struggles to work out what they are. However, you can use the Christmas jumbler for just about anything, so be creative and jumble reindeer names, Christmas films, carols, and other related topics.

This brain game is primarily aimed at the kids but there’s no reason you can’t step up the difficulty and use it for the adults too.

You can have a lot of fun with this game and can choose to play in family teams or on your own.
