Fun Ideas To Spice Up Your Family Game Night

Fun Ideas To Spice Up Your Family Game Night

If game nights are regular occurrences for your family, it could be time to spice things up. Consider adding a few of these fun ideas to your night! Watch family time become a little less monotonous and a little more exciting.

Draw From a Hat

Chances are you have a collection of games that you rotate between. This can be a source of conflict, as family members may have different opinions on which game to play. Turn the decision-making process into a fun one rather than a grueling one. Simply write down the names of each game you own and place them in a hat. Each game night, draw from the hat. Another idea is to make drawing from the hat a game in and of itself. Consider writing down trivia night questions and placing them in a hat. Have multiple teams take turns drawing from the hat. Tally up how many questions each team got right and go from there.

Music

Some games require a certain silence that allows deep thinking—especially strategy games. But consider adding some music to your game nights to enhance the ambience. For example, if you’re playing trivia, play the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” intro at time-specific points in the game. Playing the game Ticket to Ride? Find train sound effects you can play whenever someone’s route gets blocked. The possibilities are endless. Have fun with it and try to cater the music to the specific game you’re playing.

Menu

Game night is a great chance to break out fun party snacks and food. If you want a fun activity before games, have someone create a menu of the snacks to hand out to family members. From there, have everyone order the food they’d like. Enjoy the process of baking or cooking before game night; it’s another opportunity to bond with your family outside of games. For an added twist, the losing team(s) have to wash dishes once game night is over.

Use these fun ideas to spice up your family game night. Enjoy watching the joy come over your family members’ faces when you surprise them with something new.
