Ultimate Guide to Game Night

What to play and serve before getting competitive

When hosting a dinner party, there is no reason to fear that dull conversation will leave guests with a sour taste in their mouths. Just as you would plan your menu in advance, it’s wise to think about ways that you can engage your guests (and their minds) around the dinner table before the day of the party. Using games the group can play together is one of our favorite options.
When the weather turns cooler, going out on weekends is not as appealing (especially when it is snowing or raining) as staying in and having friends over. If the chitchat turns dry, and board games are, well, boring, try popping your favorite movie in the DVD player, or putting everyone's favorite television show on the TV, for something new. But only if you're of legal drinking age...
Inspired by the punkin' chuckin' and apple bobbing competitions of autumn, and summer afternoons spent lined up along the stone wall challenging friends to see who could spit the cherry pit or watermelon seed the farthest, we’ve come up with six ways to make mealtime a bit more fun this fall.
