GI Show – Best Holiday Party Games, Interns' Games Of The Year

by Ben Hanson on Dec 21, 2017 at 06:00 PM

Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! On this episode, Ben Hanson, Matt Miller, Ben Reeves, and Suriel Vazquez recommend a ton of video and tabletop games to play with family and friends over the holiday break. We know family time can be stressful, and we're here to help. After some great community emails and a surprising visit from a Christmas icon, we say goodbye to our wonderful batch of Game Informer interns George Ash, Keenan McCall, and Cody Mello-Klein and force them to debate about the best game of 2017.
