Just thought I would share a few little things I put together for my husbands game birthday. He decided to do something similar to me and plan a day of stuff he enjoys doing and invite anyone to join in whenever they can. It started with a kick boxing session at his gym, a tasy brunch at a lovely place called Break of Dawn, I highly recommend it if you live in Orange County or plan to visit. We then went back to the house for some games, since my husband loves games!
Here are just a few things I put together for him to make his game time special . . .
First of all, he makes the best popcorn! He makes it on the stove with coconut oil and it is so good! So I put together a popcorn bar so people could snack while we played games.
I decorated with a few game details, nothing fancy! Here is a link for printing out Scrabble pieces for a sign: Scrabble Banner
The rest of the game pieces I just made with construction paper.
I also put together an ice cream bar as my husband LOVES ice cream!!
Of course I had to create a trophy for the person that had the most game wins! I just screwed a toy dinosaur to a piece of wood and spray painted it gold, so easy!
As for the games, we just had a bunch out and people could play whatever, here are some fun games I would recommend . . .
- Settlers of Catan
- Cards Against Humanity (adult)
- Exploding Kittens (so awesome!)
- Wits and Wagers
- The Contender
- DC Deck Building game (for the nerds)
- Drawful by Jackbox (this is a game played on your phone using a game system) This is my favorite and was a hit!! Here is a link with info: Drawful
