Christmas Giveaway: Win A Big Potato Games Bundle

Win a Big Potato Games Bundle

It’s time for another Sim’s Life Christmas Giveaway and I am beyond excited to offer you the chance to win a Big Potato games bundle!

We have been lucky enough to put quite a few games from range to the test this year and even I have to admit to becoming a games fan this year! With a range featuring family friendly games or even a selection perfect for a games night with friends, I can guarantee lots of fun and laughter!

Easy to play, colourful and totally engaging, the Big Potato games range is perfect for family games time at Christmas! The prize bundle contains 20 Second Showdown and Santa Banter,

20 Second Showdown from Big Potato Games

20 Second Showdown

Quick to understand the rules, this is a quick fire challenge game that will have everyone joining in! Split into two teams (yellow/blue team), appoint an adjudicator to read out the challenge, set the sand timer to the correct position and away you go! Aimed at children 10 years plus, I am sure you can get away with playing with slightly younger children too., just skip over any harder tasks. Challenges include ‘Count to 10 in a different language’, ‘introduce your team like they are a band’, ‘hang something from your nose’ and many more. Arrange your dream team and get ready to play! Things get more exciting as the timer starts to run dry, but don’t let the pressure of this super fun Big Potato game distract you! Don’t forget to pass the baton to the next team member for them to take up their challenge. Once you have completed a challenge, the time is flipped back over and a task given to the other team, the team who runs out of time is the loser – but simply reset the timer and play again!
You can purchase 20 Second Showdown from Amazon priced at £24.99.

Santa Banter from Big Potato Games

Santa Banter

This is a really great game to have to hand if you are preparing to travel over Christmas. Small and compact, Santa Banter packs an almighty punch in the fun stake though! A Christmas inspired take on another Big Potato favourite Obama Lama, this charades based game will delight all over the festive period! Trust me, there is nothing quite like watching your 10 year old child act out ‘Roast Turkey’! Grab people together in teams and mime or describe what is on the chosen card, if you remember the game is Christmas related, that will help a little! 😉 The game really is as simple as that to play! This is an adult based game, however you can select more ‘family friendly’ rhyme cards to play with! A fantastic gift idea, especially for a Secret Santa gift! You can purchase Santa Banter from Amazon priced at £9.99. 

If you are liking the sound of the Big Potato games prize bundle, why not enter for your chance to win below!
In the meantime, check out the awesome range of games available from Big Potato – I can highly recommend Weird Things Humans Search For!

Presents.. then about a 3-4 hour lunch when my uncle always has to set off the smoke alarms with the flames from the christmas pudding, if he doesn’t its not flamey enough! Evening is always cheese.. mountains of it! Then work our way through my dad’s cocktail book and have our annual game of trivial pursuit. The TV never goes on on Christmas day.

Family members not staying turn up for drinks and nibbles at around midday. Big blow out traditional lunch with all the trimmings at about 2pm. Walk orQueen’s Speech at 3pm. Board games and charades etc until 7 or so when the little ones go to bed, more games or TV and wine during the evening. Wonderful!

Early morning bucks fizz and vegan BLT’s – followed by presents. Then we start the veg prep and create a massive veggie roast feast for everyone – before sitting down to plough through our chocs and sweets and falling asleep in front of this year’s blockbuster!

We always let the kids open presents without worrying about little things like having breakfast! We try to encourage them to take it in turns to open one each and let us open one each. Last year, Leo was a bit little to understand this and just wanted to rip his own presents open. But this year we are hoping he we be a bit more understanding.

Someone always has to go down to the living room to check whether Father Christmas has ‘been.’ Only then can everyone go down.
