Who To Invite

The first problem to solve when it comes to party planning is who among your friends to invite. You want to produce the best experience possible. The number of people to call over directly correlates to how much room you have for people to socialize comfortably. If your gaming space offers room for a large group, it may be a neat idea to set up multiple gaming stations and have your guests move about the room as the night wears on. Another idea, if you can accommodate a large group, is to play a plethora of team games: this way, no one is left out, and friends can be paired up.

Having a small space does not exclude you from the fun. This may be the perfect environment to host a party with a few other couples. Have couples switch partners and have a bit of fun playing a few competitive board games. If you happen to belong to the single’s club, have no fear: simply invite over a few good friends who wouldn’t mind playing board games that do not require teams, such as Monopoly or Scrabble.

Keep in mind that inviting an even number of people is the best option, just in case you decide to play games that require teams. Another good tip here is to invite friends that are passionate about playing board games: you can easily tell when someone is not enjoying themselves or not putting in an effort. Avoid this by inviting the right people!
