An excellent trivia game that helps refresh key themes, quotations, messages, characters, and symbols from A Christmas Carol. I like to play it in teams of two: I have put answers with it but of course the teacher is free to take other answers if they see fit. Teams have to work through a series of categories and various levels of difficulty to gain the most points. My students love this for revision. I have also used it as 'silent work' where each student picks a category and question and then the entire class must answer on paper silently. At the end we take up the answers and each person gives themselves a score to see how they've done.
