How to Host a Family Games Night at Home

Hosting family game night at home is like adding a splash of excitement to your evenings! It’s all about creating those precious moments and sharing quality time with your loved ones. In this guide, we're diving deep into the art of hosting the ultimate family games night at home - one that caters to everyone of all ages, all without breaking the bank!

So, you've got your favourite snacks ready, the dining table is cleared, and the whole family is buzzing with anticipation. It's time to transform your home into the ultimate battlefield for a night filled with laughter, teamwork, and just a hint of rivalry.

How to Host a Games Night

Whether you're into classic board games, lively card games, or competitive team challenges, Poundland has everything you need to make your family and friends games night a roaring success! With our affordable snacks and delightful party touches, you can set the perfect mood for an evening filled with laughter. So, gather your loved ones, roll the dice, and let the games begin!

1) Choose Your Game & Invite Your Friends

We get it; selecting the perfect game to set the tone for an unforgettable evening of entertainment can be difficult – and a little stressful. But first, consider who you’ve invited and what they might enjoy, too. Whether you're a fan of a classic strategy-based board game or you prefer the fast-paced action of card games, having a variety of options ensures there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Top tip: why not ask your friends and family to bring along their favourite board game? This way, you'll have an even wider selection to choose from, guaranteeing endless hours of fun and laughter.

2) Set the Scene & Table

Crafting a fun-filled atmosphere for an enjoyable evening of games is important when having guests over. Whether you opt for a roomy dining table or a snug coffee table, ensuring everyone has a comfortable spot to participate in the festivities is essential to setting the scene.

But why settle for the basics? Take your hosting skills to the next level by enhancing your dining table with fantastic tableware. With Poundland's extensive tableware collection, you can effortlessly elevate your tabletop of choice into a winning centrepiece that’ll WOW your guests. Check out our chic green braided placemats, available in a pack of 2. They’re the perfect choice to add a touch of elegance and a pop of colour to any table setting, and a full set can be achieved for under £10, too!

3) Lay Out the Snacks

When it comes to hosting a successful games night, having a variety of snacks on hand is an absolute must to ensure no guest goes hungry. After all, what's a night of fun and games without some nibbles on hand to keep everyone fuelled? At Poundland, we understand the importance of you being able to offer an array of affordable food and drink options to cater to every craving. Therefore, we’ve selected our favourites that we’re positive will be a big hit on games night. 

For fuss-free nibbles that’ll keep guests coming back for more, savoury share bags like the Big Night In Salt & Vinegar Crisps and Walkers Cheese & Onion Crisps are a must-have. Simply pour them into a large bowl and watch as they disappear in no time. But let's not forget the sweet side of things! After all, who says you can't treat yourself to a pudding after passing go? Indulgent treats like the Maltesers Honeycomb Sharing Pouch and M&M's Peanut Chocolate Share Pouch are definite crowd-pleasers that will satisfy any sweet tooth and keep the fun going all night long.

Top tip: when selecting snacks for your game’s night, it's essential to opt for finger foods that are easy to enjoy without interrupting the gameplay. With our range of snacking options, you can ensure that your guests stay satisfied and focused on the fun throughout the evening.
