Creative Christmas: a gaming collaboration

Christmas is now only a couple of weeks away and everyone is starting to get into the festive spirit. As the carol says, ‘tis the season to be jolly – and what better way to celebrate both this time of year and how awesome the WordPress community is than with a collaboration.

Get your creative Chrimbo groove on and join us in answering these 12 video-game-related questions. Simply post your responses on your site on the dates specified, and check your reader on those days to see how other bloggers have answered!

🎁   19 December 2017:   You need to choose a gift for someone special and go online to check out the video game item catalogue. Who is this person and what present would you select for them?

👪   20 December 2017:   You’re wrapping presents while listening to cheesy festive tunes, and start to reminisce about holidays past. What’s your favourite Christmas gaming memory?

🎅   21 December 2017:   You receive a call from Santa, as the elves desperately need a hand in the workshop getting all the toys ready. Which video game character would you recruit to help out?

🎶   22 December 2017:   It’s now Christmas Eve and you’re throwing a lively party for all your friends, family and favourite characters. Which video game soundtracks would be on your playlist?

❤   23 December 2017:   The party is still going strong and you find yourself conveniently positioned under the mistletoe. Which video game character would you call over for a cheeky kiss?

🦌   24 December 2017:   You’re woken from your drunken haze by another frantic call from Santa, who’s worried he’s not going to make all his deliveries in time. Which video game item or vehicle would you recommend for him?

🎄   27 December 2017:   Your help must have worked, because it’s now Christmas morning and presents are under the tree! There’s a fancy box with your name on it; which gaming-related item are you hoping is inside?

🦃   28 December 2017:   It’s now time to head out to the kitchen to put on your oven gloves and start preparing Christmas dinner. It consists solely of video game food; what’s on the menu?

🎮   29 December 2017:   The presents have been opened and dinner has been eaten, so you’ve got a bit of time for gaming while Gran is snoozing on the sofa. What’s the best video game to play during the holidays?

👗   30 December 2017:   You’ve been invited to a swanky New Year’s Eve party but have nothing suitable to wear! Which video game character do you call to ask if you can borrow an outfit?

🤞   31 December 2017:   Midnight eventually rolls around, which means it’s now time to pick a New Year gaming resolution to see you through the next 12 months. What’s your choice for 2018?

🎉   01 January 2018:   You wake up the following morning, hungover but happy – you have an entire day of gaming ahead of you. You start thinking back over the video games you played during 2017; what was your game of the year?

There are just a few tiny rules:

  • Get creative. Your answers can be as long or as short as you wish, and can be in any format at all – a blog post, a recorded message, a drawing, a scene built solely out of mince pies for example.
  • You can answer as many or as few of the questions as you like. The only thing we ask if that you publish those answers on the dates above.
  • Please let me know in the comments below if you’d like to join in so I can add you to a list of amazing bloggers to be published later this month!
  • We look forward to seeing your answers – I’d better start writing my own!

    1. I am looking forward to seeing what folks come up with for these! I like how some of these are Christmasy versions of classic questions (game of the year) but then others are really quirky and fun. It’ll make for a good mix of content. I won’t be participating myself as my hands will be full with Charming and Open this month, but I enjoy the idea and it’ll be fun to see what the other bloggers in this excellent community write about!

        It’s lovely to see everyone getting involved with the Charming and Open event. I’ve written the response for my own question and this should be published next week!

        • I’m excited to see your post – I tend to learn about games I’ve never played before on Later Levels and it is always a fun experience, so it’ll be cool to see what wild and wacky creature you’d let live at your house!
