Christmas Candy Game with Nativity Story Clues

How well do you know your candy? Find out with this Christmas candy game. Each clue is related to the nativity story and each answer is the name of a popular candy or chocolate bar.

I personally like to purchase a single serving or package of each candy and put them in a box or small treasure chest. I then read each clue and give the first person who guesses the correct candy name that item of candy as their prize.

CLUE: Possible nickname for the wisemen?
ANSWER: Smarties

Christmas Candy Game Nativity Story Clue - Possible Nickname for the Wisemen.

If you are playing in a large group it's a good idea to set some rules ahead of time. 

For example:

Each person can only win two pieces of candy. After that they can only guess if no one else knows the answer. If they get it right they have to gift that candy to someone else at the party/event.

Have guests jump up or raise their hand if they know the answer. That way it's easier to see who was first and when several jump at the same time, it allows you the chance to choose someone who hasn't had an opportunity to guess yet.  Be prepared. People will still shout out the answers, but if you set the rules ahead, they'll know that shouting first does not mean you get first dibs on the win.

Some clues are easier then others.  Don't be afraid to give guests a bit of time to figure out the answer. If they can't come up with an answer, expand the clue as needed or give the answer.
