Our Favourite Christmas Movies

We’re getting in the festive spirit with fun slots and Christmassy bingo games, but we can’t wait to watch out top Christmas movies. Pop these on the telly and settle down with your favourite games to make 2017 a Christmas to remember!

Elf

Will Ferrell’s Christmas movie Elf has to be on the list of top movies of all time. The all-star cast and hilarious comedy stylings mean that we can watch this movie over and over again. The tale follows the Christmas Elf Buddy, as he goes on a journey of self-discovery to find his dad in New York.

If you love this Christmas classic then you’ll love playing it while in our Snug online bingo room. Get cosy with your fellow roomies and get chatting about your top movies, as this is a hosted room that’s filled with fun.

It’s a Wonderful Life

Speaking of classic Christmas films, It’s a Wonderful Life gets brought out every festive season. Whether you have the classic video or an up to date Blu Ray, there’s nothing better than settling in to watch this movie. Most of us will probably know all of the words off by heart at this stage!

With this movie, we’d recommend a Christmas themed slot like Very Merry Christmas. As the story unfolds you could be winning yourself a few Christmas presents with this rewarding slot game.

Die Hard

The eternal question of ‘is Die Hard a Christmas film’ is answered as soon as you fire up this movie. Hans Gruber’s face just gets us in the festive spirit and the film has more twists and turns than you can imagine. The best part about this movie has to be watching it with someone that’s never seen it before and watching their expression.

It’s the perfect movie to get watching while you wait for the big jackpot games to begin. Just watching it any time of year brings back memories of being too full for pudding!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This little musical number comes on every year and we can’t help but sing along to it every time. The story follows the King of Halloween as he takes on a more festive role. Be prepared to have these songs stuck in your head for days after you watch it!

If you’re a big Tim Burton fan then this might just start you off watching the entire collection all over again. This is definitely one to watch while playing bingo, you can even share the lyrics with other roomies as you all get in the festive mood.

There we have it, our complete guide to the movies we love to go along with the games we most enjoy, what’s your perfect combination?

The Web Pub

Comparing popular drinks to social media networks is a fun way to get an idea on how popular they really are! Cosmopolitans for example are usually linked to women who in turn are also 80% of the users on Pinterest. Likewise, we’ve got the most popular social network being Facebook, with over a billion users, that could be likened to Coca Cola. Either way, the results are all pretty amusing!

Easter Egg Hunt for Adults: 5 Eggstra Special Ideas

Easter has to be everyone’s favourite time of year. Even though it’s normally associated with kids it’s the one time of the year where we can over-indulge in chocolate and sweets and not feel guilty about it.

But if you’re not a fan of chocolate eggs or you’re not particularly keen on scouring a garden for them then don’t worry, we’ve got a selection of fun Easter games you can try that are specifically for adults!

The Blindfolded Egg Pursuit

To start off our list of Easter egg hunt ideas for adults, we have the Blindfolded Egg Pursuit. This game involves two teams of two, so it doesn’t require a lot of people to play which makes it easy to setup.

First you hide eggs around a room and then one person is chosen from each team, they’re then spun around with a blindfold on and with that blindfold still over their face they have to find the eggs that you’ve hidden away.

The Blindfolded Egg Pursuit is always hilarious to watch, although you may want to store away any breakable objects just in case a blindfolded player knocks them over.

The Midnight Egg Chase

Next up we have the Midnight Egg Chase. This thrilling event involves players hunting for eggs that are hidden away in the darkness and the team that that finds the most, wins.

You can give your players torches to make things easier, or if you want to really challenge your guests you could conceal the eggs in clever or difficult to reach places.

The Guess My Egg Head Game

This is a great ice breaker and it’s essentially the Easter equivalent of 20 questions as players take it in turns to guess the character strapped to the heads.

To start off you need to cut out an egg shape in card then lay the picture of various geeks inside it with glue or tape. You then attach these to various players’ heads and they take it in turn trying to guess the person strapped to their heads.

The Get Eggstremely Drunk Game

This brilliant game involves filling up a range of colourful plastic eggs with alcohol and hiding them around your house. Each eggshell can contain any drink you like and the goal is to find as many of these eggs as you can and drink their contents when you find them.

To add to the game you could add a few forfeits for players to choose should they chicken out of drinking their eggs contents. You can pick up your coloured plastic eggs here, all that’s left is to stock up on alcohol and you’re good to go.

Please be sure to drink responsibly, though!

The Hard Core Egg Hunt

For anyone that enjoys a good egg hunt, you will find that the Hardcore Egg Hunt is something that’s right up your alley. This game takes the standard hunt and takes up a couple of notches as you make the whole ‘capture the egg’ event more challenging by adding trivia, riddles and difficult clues to egg locations.

If you really want to hatch a master plan you could create a game that involves GPS coordinates for eggs across multiple locations. If you find yourself struggling to come up with a challenging hunt, here’s one someone made earlier.

But, if you’re not sold on any of those suggestions, then try checking out a couple of fun promotions over at Cheers Bingo, like our Easter egg hunt for example.

So no matter what you do this Easter, just make sure that it’s something fun, it’s only once a year after all!
