Channable’s Christmas Trivia!

 

Christmas doesn’t only have to be fun and games for the children. We’re a fan of the Gift Grab game here at Channable. Instructions are as follows:

 

There are two rounds. You’ll need a dice, a large surface where you can swap and steal easily, and everyone must bring two wrapped presents, they can be anything from an iPhone X (wow thanks!) or even a boring old can of beans. Put all the gifts in a pile in the middle of the area.

 

Everyone rolls the die and the highest roll gets to go first. The first player rolls the dice and must follow the action related to the number thrown.

 

  • Action 1: Choose a present from the pile, but don’t unwrap it!
  • Action 2: Move any gifts you have to the person on your left!
  • Action 3: Choose a gift from the pile and unwrap it!
  • Action 4: Move any gifts you have to the person on your right!
  • Action 5: Unwrap one present (if you have one)!
  • Action 6: Choose a present from the pile, but don’t unwrap it!

 

Once there are no more gifts in the pile, the second round begins (set a timer for around 15 minutes or the game can last forever):

 

  • Action 1: Give one of your presents to someone else.
  • Action 2: Everyone needs to give one gift to the person on their right.
  • Action 3 : Everyone has to swap all their gifts with someone else.
  • Action 4: SWAP one gift with someone else.
  • Action 5: STEAL a gift from someone.
  • Action 6: Everyone move one chair to the left (leave the presents behind 😉 )

Channable Christmas Trivia!

 

Today is Sinterklaas in the Netherlands, Channable’s home country. He is also the inspiration for the popular Christmas icon Santa Claus. It’s typical for the Dutch to eat gingerbread bites named Kruidnoten, so Channable wanted to share the perfect Kruidnoten recipe behind this advent door:

 

Ingredients:

250g self raising flour

125g brown sugar

100g soft butter

4 tbsp milk

2 tbsp speculaas spices ( or 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ground cloves, 1 tsp white pepper, pinch of cardamon, pinch nutmeg)

Pinch salt

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven 150 C.
  2. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the spices.
  3. Cream the butter and the sugar together in a separate bowl. Add the milk. 
  4. Create a well in the flour mixture and add the wet ingredients. 
  5. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients to make a dough.
  6. Roll the dough into a ball, cover with clingfilm and fridge for 20 minutes. 
  7. Once chilled, form the dough into small grape-sized balls. 
  8. Place the small balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper and squash them slightly and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  9. Remove, cool and enjoy! Happy Sinterklaas!
