Ugly Sweaters is a slide-driven "crowd opinion" style game. Participants on stage will do their best to guess how the crowd voted in this fun holiday-trend resource.


Ugly Sweaters is the perfect game for any holiday season program. Not only will this game fit perfectly with the ever-popular "ugly sweater" trend but is also guaranteed to involve the whole crowd. The game starts by inviting two teams onto the stage. Each round, the stage teams will be blindfolded as the audience is shown a slide and votes on which sweater is the ugliest. Remember...the "ugliest sweater" means the least favorite according to the majority vote. Once locked in, the teams will try to predict how the crowd voted. Teams that guess correctly get one point. The first team to reach the predetermined point value wins. Each round has two "reveal slides" that lets you display how your crowd voted.

This Resource Includes:

  • Gameplay instructions document (pdf file)
  • Complete PowerPoint game file
  • Individual (10 rounds + reveal slides + instructions + blanks) game slides (jpeg files)
  • Title slide (jpeg file)

About this Product
This game is such a layup for inviting your audience to come already wearing their favorite ugly sweater. One way to personalize the game to your context is to utilize the "blank slides." These slides allow the user to place any image on top of two blank sweaters. Choose something that gets your crowd in a debate battle with anything from sports teams, staff members, or local restaurants. This game has endless connection opportunities to any holiday or seasonal program.
