How to Play Christmas 5 Seconds Game

First, place the timer and all the cards on the table where everyone can reach them. Determine how many rounds will be played: for larger groups, play three or four rounds and for smaller groups, play four or five rounds.

The first player to name 3 is in the Hot Seat. The player to the left of the Hot Seat player draws a card and reads it aloud. As soon as the card is read, the player to the right of the Hot Seat player starts the timer. The player in the Hot Seat has 5 seconds to give 3 answers.

If the Hot Seat player names 3 in 5 seconds, they keep the card and score a point.

The player to the right is now in the Hot Seat and the player to the left draws a new card and reads it aloud and the player to the right of the Hot Seat player starts the timer. Continue going around the circle until you’ve completed the established number of rounds. The player with the most points is the winner!

If the player in the Hot Seat isn’t able to give 3 answers in 5 seconds, they get no points and the player to right now has 5 seconds to respond – However, the new player cannot use any answers that were previously given by the player in the Hot Seat.

  1. Hello!

    I have requested both the Christmas 5 Second Rule game and the Christmas Would you Rather Games several times. Unfortunately, I have received them, even after checking spam and junk mail. Is it possible to get these?

  2. Hi I have tried to grab several of the games but everytime I try I am just not receiving an email. Spam is checked and tried with my my hubbies email, still nothing. Would love to give some of these a try over Christmas.

  3. It looks so cute! I left my information , but did not get the e-mail. I checked the spam as well. Thanks for your help!
