How to Host a Stay-In Adult Game Night

Why go out, when you can stay in and play some super fun games? Just grab the snacks, drinks and card table and you’re good to go!

Invite Friends

Yes, believe it or not, you need to have friends at your house to have a game night. Sure, you can stay in and play Monopoly with your significant other, but it’s common knowledge that Monopoly leads to break-ups – so let’s avoid that.

Instead, call or text your friends and arrange a fun adult game night! We recommend inviting around 4-6 people over (no need to be crazy), which leads to the perfect amount to play a variety of games.

Proper Playing Surfaces
This is crucial to a great game night. You don’t want everyone to have to stand around your kitchen island to play – that’s why having a table that sits around 4-8 people comfortably is a must. Dining room tables are a great option, as well as your standard kitchen table. If you don’t have either, invest in a foldable card table (or two), they are definitely worth it!
