Board Games and Beyond: Elevating Your Entertainment

Whether it’s classic board games, card tournaments, or trivia showdowns, game and entertainment nights offer a fantastic way to engage your customers and keep them coming back for more. But they’re about so much more than just having board games available or the odd quiz now and then. To take games night to the next level, you need to have the right mix of games, drinks, and ambiance. Here are some tips on how to offer something unique!


Customisation turns everything into a game. It invests every aspect of an evening with fun and competition. Create cocktails inspired by popular games or characters. The “Jenga Julep” featuring mint and bourbon, a “Mario Kart Mai Tai” with a colourful salt rim, or a “Monopoly Margarita” with lime peel money. You could even offer customisable options where guests can choose their spirits, mixers, and garnishes to create their own signature drinks. Make sure to display these fun creations in equally fun style.

Game Specific Food and Snacks

You need to think carefully about what will go well with the game being played. The food must complement the game, rather than being the star of the show. Finger foods and shareable snacks that are easy to eat while playing games are best, such as mini tacos or burgers. Provide savoury and sweet options to cater to different preferences, including cheese platters, charcuterie boards, and dessert bites. Make sure your tables are set up with napkins, toothpicks, and small plates for easy serving and clean-up. 


Appropriate Barware

Barware adds to the ambiance and theme. Attention to the small details can really excite your guests. For sleek and sophisticated themes, as with comedy or musical performances, serve handcrafted cocktails in copper mugs. For retro and colourful vibes, reminiscent of an arcade, or for karaoke nights, you can use tiki mugs and crushed ice and go big on graphics. For something like a board game night, it’s all about comfort and convenience. The essential point is to choose barware that meets the aesthetic and functional needs of the night you’re organising.
