How the Game Works:
The game works a lot like classic Bingo, except you play while watching Christmas movies. Play the movie of your choice (cheesy made-for-TV Christmas movies work best for this game). Keep in mind that it may take more than one movie to achieve a Bingo win, since it truly depends on the specific movie and card you are playing.
As the movie progresses, use the dry erase marker to mark off the character/plot details as they happen. Check off 5 squares in a row, and declare BINGO!
• 16 unique Bingo cards, 5.5″ x 6″ in size

• When using a dry erase marker, gently wipe cards clean with a paper towel to reuse
OR… Instead of a dry erase marker, look for small items around your house to cover the game squares during play (such as festive pieces of candy, paper punches, checker pieces, etc.). This can work great for large groups, and the possibilities are endless!

The Story Behind the Product:
Each year my family enjoys watching the made-for-TV Christmas movie marathons together. (You know the ones — the woman who hires a fake boyfriend for the holidays to please her mother, the santa hat shop that’s not doing well because of the greedy corporation, the big city professional who goes back to her small hometown for Christmas and runs into her high school sweetheart, etc.) We have them on in the background while we do festive things, like wrap presents and make cookies. (We also watch them a little obsessively, haha!) Even though there are new movies each year, the key plot lines and character details are often reused and have become comically predictable.
Awhile back, we had the grand idea of making a list of all of the classic go-to themes, characters, and plot details in the typical TV Christmas movie, and made a Bingo game out of it. It was so hilarious and made the movies more entertaining to watch!
So, I decided to make the game into a product for others to enjoy as well, since it has become our own family tradition. I truly hope your family and friends enjoy playing it as much as we do.
