Friends, food and fun — you game? Thought so. Let everyone show off their competitive side at a casual, family-friendly game night like this one.
Game Night Food
Make it easy on yourself — and the players — by offering a buffet of individual servings and finger foods so everyone can grab a small plate and get back to the game. Check out our game-changing menu ideas for inspiration.
Pop frozen tater tots in the oven, skewer when cool and set on a plate with a side of ketchup.
Spice up your game night menu with chili-filled bread bowls. Just cut tops off bread rolls and use a spoon or your hands to hollow out the insides. Next, heat up canned chili and fill the bread bowls with it, then garnish with your favorite toppings, such as shredded cheese and green onions. Game on!
Your guests will be cheering for more once they see these chili cheese fries. Get the recipe for this mouthwatering munchie.
Pizza is a winner for kids and adults alike; just add your crowd’s favorite toppings.
A quick and easy snack is just one play away! Fill a bowl with store-bought caramel popcorn or other grab-and-go treats. (Just keep in mind that popcorn should only be offered to kids over 4, as it can be a choking hazard for little ones.)
Game Night Drinks
Set up a drink station by filling a beverage tub with ice and your favorite beverages. Don’t forget the bottle opener, napkins and glasses or cups in case guests want to split a drink.
Game Night Activities
It’s game time! Grab paper and pens and spend the evening playing Reverse Charades, Celebrity or other guessing games, or pull out a deck of cards, dominoes or a board game. You can also download a free game on your phone or ask friends to bring a favorite game from their place. Check out our game ideas to keep playing all night.
