Christmas entertainment for the family

Well I just played sensi soccer for the first time in about 15 years and it was awesome, especially the part when Scotland won the European championship. This got me thinking about what to do on Christmas day and so I'm looking for suggestions for some games to play with adult non gamers.


1 More fun than Christmas TV, (shouldn't be hard)

2 Less tantrum inducing than Monopoly, (I know I said we're adults but. . . )

3 Minimum 2 player simultaneous multiplayer

4 Easy learning curve for non-gamers

5 Christmas theme is NOT essential

Dynablaster would be a good one (especially if you've got a four-player adapter) - it doesn't get much easier to grasp than that (although it might fail your second rule, thinking about it ). And of course, it doesn't take long to play a match and is hellishly addictive.

Just had a go of dynablaster, that's the stuff! I played this game on another platform in the past, (SNES maybe). Very good multiplayer. Don't have a 4-way adaptor but 3 player wil be good. Did this game have different names on other platforms, I strongly remember the game but not the name.

More Please

Rule 6 - ECS/OCS Amiga only (sorry spiff)

Did you mean Bubble Bobble? I'll check it out, another famous one I never played.
