    does anyone have any good ideas for games to be done at a chanuka party?





    i know it sounds childish but musical chairs with adults/kids are a blast! word games, puzzles….good luck!

    not I


    I like that! All kids games are great for adults too!

    When and why did it become a “mitzvah” to have a game featured at a Chanukah party? I have noticed that families try to outdo each other by coming up with the newest game. Yes, there is a minhag of playing draidel, but the games that people are playing today have no source in halacha or minhag. Chanukah is not the time to follow chukas hagoy!

    As a side note, many of the “games” played lack in tznius and menchlichkeit, and end up causing much loshon hora and machlokes. “It’s only a game” is not an excuse to delve into other peoples private life and sholom bayis. Games like how well do you know your friend/spouse, hadwriting analysis, pranking etc. are unacceptable and inexcusable (even if “he’s my brother-in-law” or “she’s my sister-in-law” etc.).



    You want someone to burn their house down for the sake of a Chanuka game?!

    not I

    Our family plays family oriented games.

    taboo with the siblings and siblings in law..

    We try and keep it family oriented..

    it’s not everyday for the whole family to be together..


    Shalom Chaver-

    I hear your point, but Chanukah is a time of year that families get together and I dont see anything wrong with spending quality time with your family playing some sort of game.
