14 Games To Play Online Over Christmas

If you’re stuck at home but having to work over the festive period, most of us are now likely to be looking for some extra entertainment over the holidays. From puzzles to drawing challenges, here are some of the best games and activities to play online.

Flappy Bird

Use your spacebar to fly Flappy Bird as far as you can without hitting a pipe. It’s harder than it sounds and requires full concentration to keep Flappy alive. Don’t be surprised if you have to restart the game a few times before you get the hang of it.

Jigsaw Planet

If you discovered a new love for puzzles during lockdown, you’ll love Jigsaw Planet. Choose from hundreds of layouts, themes and levels of difficulty. A firm favourite with the SL Team, it’s a great way to spend an hour (or two).

Snow Line

The aim of this game is to safely guide Father Christmas to the finish line, collecting presents along the way. You’ll have to use the pencil to draw his route, but it’s not as easy as it sounds – don’t be surprised if he falls off the track on your first few attempts.

Snake On Google Maps

Nokia 2000 fans will remember one of the best mobile phone games from the 90s, Snake. This version is set on Google Maps where you can choose to play on a map of Sydney, London, Cairo or San Francisco. Use the keyboard arrows to guide the snake around the city and gobble up the objects along the way.

Pacman Doodle

Celebrate Pacman’s 40th anniversary with this online version of the classic arcade game. Guide Pacman through the maze to eat all the dots, while avoiding the four ghosts. Look out for the larger dots which turn the ghosts blue – if Pacman manages to eat them, you’ll get bonus points.

The Maze

Based on the book Maze by Christopher Manson, this online game allows you to move from room to room by selecting a door based on various clues. You’ll have to find your way to Room 1 to win the game, but not all of the clues are to be trusted, so choose the doors carefully…

Quick Draw

For a speedy challenge, Quick Draw gives you various objects to draw in under 20 seconds. If the online bot guesses correctly, you’ll move to the next word, but if the object can’t be detected, you’ll lose out on points.

Use the letters on your keyboard to move the legs of your Olympic runner in this tricky online game. Each letter (Q, W, O and P) moves each part of his legs, so you’ll have to use some serious coordination skills to get him to run across the track.

For an old-school classic, spend some spare moments playing Minesweeper. The aim of the game is to open all the cells of the board without finding the bomb. Right click to place a flag on the squares where you think the bombs might be hiding, but if you set them off, it’s game over.
