How To Host A Game Night

Hosting A Game Night + A List of Adult Games

Game night is not just for kids anymore!  Adult game nights are becoming more and more common thanks to an abundance of fun, adult-themed games on the market.  If you are thinking of hosting a game night but not sure where to begin, we have some great tips for hosting an adult game night, plus a list of popular adult games, to make it the best game night ever.

It’s good to have some pre-game introductions for guests who may not know each other.  You could go around the room and have each person introduce themselves, or you could come up with some icebreakers to get the conversations started and have your guests feel comfortable and welcomed.

Snacks & Drinks
As with every get-together, refreshments are a vital ingredient to the mix.  A good mix of snacks and finger foods, as well as drinks.  If you are serving alcohol, have enough non-alcoholic beverage options for your guests as well.  Game night should be a fun, casual environment, so you can set up a buffet-style table with party platters, snacks, sweets, and drinks to allow your guests to help themselves as they like.  Another option is asking your guests to each bring a snack or appetizer to your game night party. 

Schedule Breaks
Take periodic breaks from all the fun and games so you and your guests don’t get bored or tired.  This is a good time for guests to use the restroom, refill on snacks, and mingle.  It also helps to announce the last round or game of the evening, or have a predetermined end-time.
