Jingle bells, jingle bells...

It’s that time of year, friends! The house is filled with greens and reds, the music channels all start dropping the Wham, Buble and Mariah, the fridge fills up with eggnog and we gorge ourselves on fruit mince pie. It’s such a special time of year!

We love the season at DDNet, and one of the best things about it is that it’s also the perfect time to catch up on some games. When you’re not juggling parties and gatherings, it’s a slower time for work and it’s easier to steal a bit of time on the side to play something new, or finally get through that game that you stalled on.

Each year at DDNet we run a “games of Christmas” list, that works just like an advent calendar. We count down to Christmas by sharing one game recommendation for the season each day. Crank up the Jingle Bells and get into the spirit of the season with these!

Day #1: SongPop Party (Read our review here)

Without a shadow of a doubt, SongPop Party is the game you want on your Nintendo Switch for this year’s Christmas Party duties. Everything about this game is perfect for the party experience. Critically, each game is over in just 2-3 minutes, so anyone can jump in and out as they feel like it. Additionally, it’s a trivia game that covers everything from the 60s to today, so just about every social situation will be able to find the perfect option for their group of players.

Music trivia is just one of those things that inherently works as a party game experience, too. Unlike some trivia games, no one’s going to feel left out for not knowing much about the subject because everyone has at least some music that they enjoy. What’s more, while some trivia can get competitive and even heated, no one takes the kind of competition that SongPop Party offers too seriously. It’s simply good fun to try and guess songs. With so many thousands of songs, categories, and its cheerful, accessible presentation, SongPop Party is going to be a game everyone loves, in every party setting.
