The Thirteenth Day of Christmas
- 2 or more players
- Ages 7+
In this holiday memory game, one player begins by saying, “On the thirteenth day of Christmas, I returned to the store, one __________,” filling in the blank with any item (the sillier the better!). The item does not have to be from the “olden days,” like the “maids-a-milking” or “geese-a-laying” featured in the popular song. The game is more fun if the players are very descriptive--for example, one moustache-less walrus or one round-trip ticket to the moon.
The second player repeats, “On the thirteenth day of Christmas, I returned to the store two (filling in the blank with an item) and one (repeating the first player’s item).“
The next player then repeats the phrase, adding a “three” to the configuration. Play continues until a player forgets one of the items. That player leaves the game and the game continues until one player is left.
