Best family games for Christmas 2022

Christmas comes as a complete surprise every year! For many of us, this is the time to get together with family and do things together. And to be honest: why not just play round with the kids, relatives or grandparents? Or give someone a game as a gift?

If you are already together, you can also play video games together. If you spend Christmas with people who are not averse to it, we show you a number of games on our list that are great Christmas family games. You can read below what these are without any particular order or classification.


Overcooked: all you can eat (2020 – PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch)

Number of local players: four max

At Christmas, people love to cook (sometimes more, sometimes less) lavishly, so why not cook virtually? At least in Overcooked: All You Can Eat’s campaign, which connects Overcooked and Overcooked 2, good teamwork is important. Especially for this new version, the first part has been processed again in the second part engine.

Whatever the case, you must work together to chop, cook, and assemble the ingredients into the right meals in order to deliver them to waiting customers within the required time limit. Lots of fun, which sometimes may not be as easy as it seems. There are a lot of levels to complete and all DLC for both games are included. Great fun and one of my couch co-op favorites!

Cooking together can be messy sometimes.

Mario Party Superstars (2021-Nintendo Switch)

Number of local players: four max

If you’ve played Mario Party before, you’ll feel right at home at Mario Party Superstars, which features five gamepads from the Nintendo 64 era and 100 Mario Party minigames from over the years, updated and revamped for this one. The result is a great party game for four players.

They go in rhythm until you steal a star from someone else sitting next to you. Then caution is required. Hunt for coins and stars with Mario, Yoshi and Co. It’s so much fun and it all seems so magical. A great party game for the whole family on Nintendo Switch.

A true classic game to play together.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (2021-Nintendo Switch)

Number of local players: A maximum of four on one console, and eight on two consoles

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, fierce combat takes place across multiple racetracks, where you don’t just race famous characters from the Super Mario universe in go-karts and motorcycles and slam items into your face. The tide can turn quickly in Nintendo’s popular racing game, so make sure you always have a good item on hand to fend off attacks.

At the same time, it is useful to open your eyes because there are various shortcuts that can be discovered on the roads or exploited with the items. In certain cases, this can give you a decisive advantage. In any case, a Mario Kart tour is always possible, and players of all ages will quickly find their way here.

After Christmas dinner, dance round.

1-2 switch (2017-Nintendo Switch)

Number of local players: two max

1-2-Switch is not directly about observing the screen, but your opponent. You complete different games against each other, playing the Joy-Cons’ HD vibrations and their motion sensors, among other things. Maximum two players doesn’t sound like much, but it’s also amusing for the viewers and you can take turns.

You can also form teams and then take turns in team duels in different games. The winning team always moves a little further on the game board. This creates tension, especially when teams are close together and every game can ultimately be decisive.
