Ok I know there are a lot of you Hallmark Holiday movie lovers out there!!!
But I will tell you a secret. I have never seen a Hallmark Holiday movie…not a single, solitary, heartwarming one.
I know…it is hard to believe….especially since so many of my friends are die hard Hallmark movie lovers. But I’m more like:
It’s true. Judge me if you must.
HOWEVER, (and in the meantime):
I put together my annual Simple Simon holiday party game and this year it is all about Hallmark Holiday Movies!!!
Here’s the game:
I have a list of 20 magical movie plots that you can read one at a time.
Some of them are real Hallmark Holiday Movie summaries…and some of them are imposter plots written by me. WaaHaaHaa!!!! Your mission is to find out which are the real movies and which are not.
Easy peasy. Right?
Here are two different movie plots from the game. I will let you decide which one is real and which one is the imposter:
#1. Meet Me Under the Mistletoe
When a confirmed bachelor is befriended by the daughter of the busy single mother who moves in next door he finds his heart beginning to melt but, can he convince his neighbor to slow down long enough for a moment under the mistletoe?
#2. Christmas By Starlight
A woman trying to save her family’s restaurant is offered a unique arrangement by the heir of the development firm that wants to tear it down. If she pretends to appear as his legal counsel they’ll save the Starlight Café.
Did you guess which one was real and which was the imposter?
It’s a lot of fun, easy to play in person or virtually, and I have a list of more than a dozen already in the works for a sequel.
You can download all 20 along with the answer key HERE.
***NOTE: To play this virtually (like over zoom or google chats is easy. Have all the players write down on one side of a paper REAL and on the other side IMPOSTER.
Then have one person read the plots.
After each plot summary give the players 15-30 seconds to decide if the summary is real or an imposter. At the end of time each player holds up their paper with their answer.
Keep score. The person with the most correct guesses wins!
(And of course…you can play it just like this in person as well.)
