“Tao? Bagay? Hayop? Lugar? Pangyayari?” Perhaps, this is the most common game played by Filipinos in every party or reunion. This may arguably the most played game in a party and can be considered as one of the classic pinoy games especially in a Christmas party. The mechanics are simple. It is played by partner. One will guess the word and the other will aid his partner by answering yes, no, or maybe in the questions being asked.
“Two words? Three syllables?” This can be considered a classic as well, but this is well known all over the world because it is one of the most common games played in parties by different nationalities as well. This is like Pinoy Henyo but there is a slight twist. A person will act out the word being guessed by another person or group of people. For aspiring actors in the party, this is the best game for you! The key to winning in this game is in the actor itself. The more creative and understandable the acts of the person, the easier it is for people to guess the unknown word.
3. Christmas Singing Bee
Karaoke might be considered one of the essentials in Filipino parties or even for other Asians. A huge part of Filipino culture of celebrating events is the presence of karaoke. Filipinos love to sing even they are out of tune. If we combine the love of Filipinos for karaoke and the internationally famous game show known as “Singing Bee”, this game would be one of the best to play in every party. Since it is a Filipino Christmas party game, the songs to be sung should be related to Christmas. The mechanics of singing bee are simple. You may play a tune of the song and let the person guess its title or play the song and let the person fill a portion of the lyrics of the song. Whoever gets a wrong answer will be out of the game.
4. Relay Game

The goofy looks made as you play the game with your family and friends bring joy to the faces of the players and surely, yourself as well.
5. Bring Me

In this game, you will usually hear “bring me, puting buhok!” or “bring me, 1000 peso-bill!” This game is considered a classic for any type of part celebrated by Filipinos.
6. The Willie Revillame Games
The show of one of the well-known Filipino host, Willie Revillame, has given different ideas for Filipino Christmas party games. From hephep hooray to pop the balloon, these games are commonly played in every Pinoy party. The mechanics of hephep hooray is very simple yet hard to master especially if played at high speed. When the host gives you the mic, you have to shout hephep or hooray with actions depending on the last word shouted. It gets a bit tricky when the host speeds up the pace of giving the mic to you because you might get confused or over excited making you lose your focus and get eliminated in the game. For pop the balloon, it is simple as well. It may be done by group or by partner. The fasted group or pair to pop all the balloons will win.
The Best Prize for Pinoy Christmas Party Games
To make the games more enjoyable and urge the invitees to participate, your prizes must be enticing. In Filipino parties or even in different nationalities, money as a prize might be the best prize to have in games. People get competitive with high hopes of winning a lot of games to get the largest amount as possible. Forget about cute stuff for prizes! Even 50- or 100-peso prize will surely excite the players especially if there are a lot of games to play. It is beneficial for organizers as well because you do not have to worry on buying prizes. You just need to have a readily available new peso bills as prizes. Let’s emphasize “new” for the peso-bills. It adds more excitement for Filipinos when they see a new bill that is crisp and in mint condition because it signifies Christmas for many people because it is common to have money as a gift in the Filipino culture.
