Planning a game night with friends and want to keep your meeples crumb-free, your table tidy, and all eyes on the game? Here are our expert tips for hosting a stress-free soirée of play.


Everyone drops their phones and other gadgets in a basket. Only a text from the babysitter merits a peek!


Everybody loves chips, but nobody likes greasy fingerprints on the game board. Napkins for all!


Choose the game based on the group. This isn’t the time to read a 10-page manual if nobody has played the game before. And if you are playing the game for the first time, why not read the instructions the night before so you don’t waste precious game time on it? ​


To prevent spills, we’re crazy about Mason jars with a straw in the lid. Drink your soda, juice, cocktail, coffee or tea worry-free!


The point of the evening is to relax, so how about watching a music video or other video related to the game between rounds?

Now, for the fun! Here are a few suggestions to play your perfect game night.
