Games for only 3?

Our usual houseful will, like most be reduced this year. Only dh, myself and mil. We've always loved to play silly games at Christmas, not so much board games, more the parlour type but for the life of me I can't think of any that would work with just 3. Any suggestions?

Charades works with three.

And pictionary type games.

In the manner of the word?

We bought Beetle very cheaply and that definitely works for 3 and is good fun

UNO is a card game - we play it all year round (when we can) It is easy to play and very funny too grin

Rumikub is good with 3 or more.

Rummikub is great fun. Everyone we have introduced this to have enjoyed it.

The one when you have a post it on your forehead and have to guess who you are, not sure what is called, if you know what I’m rabbiting on about!!

We play rummikub with two and use two lots of tiles each. It makes for a slightly quicker game.

I just googled parlour games and there are lots of suggestions there.

Thanks all. We do play rummikub and Uno. They are great suggestions. Think I was just thinking of something a little bit different. Charades could be good though. We normally have such fun with games but I'm feeling a bit downhearted about them this year without 'all the kids'.

Googling parlour games today there are all the card games and ones with paper we used to play. Would give you a few ideas

Dobble is good for all ages (although my grandchildren are usually the winners!)
