Hallmark Christmas Movie Bingo

Years ago, my family started watching Hallmark Christmas movies together, mostly to make fun of them. We started noticing the patterns in plot and all of the stereotypical Christmas movie tropes. At some point, we made a competition out of it with handmade Bingo cards, and it has now become a family tradition.

This deck includes instructions and a set of 10 bingo cards. Am I missing something that should be added to the list? Tweet me at @thedailyem!

  1. HALLMARK CHRISTMAS MOVIE BINGO The Rules: • Not all squares

    will appear in every movie • Standard game is 5 in a row. For movie marathon, go for blackout! • “Lead” can be primary lead or love interest • “The Artist” is the “good guy.” Typically represented as the love interest who is passing up high-paying potential to follow their passion. • “The Businessman” is the “bad guy.” Typically starts off dating the primary lead and eventually shows their true colors, valuing money over everything else. • “Bonus” items are specific twists on common themes. If you get the bonus, cross off any other square on your card (helpful if one is clearly not in this movie). You must take your bonus square immediately – no changes later, so choose wisely! • Some items require judgment calls (Is that obviously fake snow? Is that kid bratty enough? Is that a “businessman”?) It’s up to your group to decide! Majority rules. • Have fun!! J
