Travel Games for Grown-Ups

Travel games are usually thought to be diversions to keep kids from complaining during road trips, but grown-ups certainly need them, too. When we're in the car for lengthy periods of time, we play a bunch of made-up games without equipment required. We'll play a musician game, where you have to name a musician based on the last letter of the last person's musician (Steven Tyler is followed by Travis Tritt, for example). We'll also do a movie quotes game where one person chooses a quote and the other has to guess the film it's from.

Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity is the awesome politically incorrect game that started the craze for party games that are suggestive, inappropriate and downright hilarious. It's not a game you play with your boss (unless your boss is insanely cool), but it is a game that you can play to crack up and totally release all of your stress from the week. In short, it's THE game to play when you want to forget the world and just laugh for a while.

Gaming Cafes are Popping Up Everywhere

Lots of game lovers enjoy trying out new games, but don't want to spend the $30+ it takes to acquire a good new game. A solution has come in the form of the gaming cafe. These are springing up all across the country, giving people the opportunity to not only try out new games but to go out as a family, with friends or for a date. Many of these cafes also have treats to eat and drinks to enjoy, so you can spend as much time as you like while you eat and play! It's like a Chuck E. Cheese for board game lovers.

Play the right games for the right occasions

Games are important for all parties, but careful planning is necessary.

When you are planning a party, games might be one of the activities you are planning for the event. Games are great for people of all ages, but it is always important to choose games that are age-appropriate. For example, the games you will choose at a child’s birthday party will be different from the games you will choose for a bachelorette party. The nice part about games is that there are games for every age group. Senior citizens even play games at various events, such as Bingo

The party planner

Thinking for 2013

I don’t know about you but I’m spending the rest of this year planning my party schedule for next year.  I refuse to get bogged down in the quicksand of depression regarding the dismal economic outlook for the New Year.  To that end, I vow to have all my party planning organized, planned and budgeted for the entire year.  I have even begun to compile a tentative guest list for each affair.  I believe my friends and I will both deserve and need the mental relief provided by some enjoyable and friendly get-togethers.
