Game night ideas

Game night with your friends? Game on!

Game night might be the easiest get-together you’ll ever host. Just your best friends, favorite drinks and an extra-large pizza. (No anchovies, please.) And if some friends moved out of town or can’t get a babysitter, no worries. They can join the fun virtually. So grab your cocktail and pull up a chair.

Keeping it simple
Not every game needs an app. Sometimes old school games are the most fun. These favorites can be played using items you probably already have at your house.

Charades
What you need: timer, notepad, pen or pencil, words or phrases on notecards (or an online word generator).

Draw!
What you need: timer, notepad, pen or pencil. Players try to guess as many of your drawings as possible in 60 seconds. Some video platforms offer a whiteboard sharing feature, too.

Bingo
What you need: Printable cards are available online. Add a twist by combining it with a watch party. Just create Bingo cards that include phrases from a show you’re watching together, rather than numbers.

Trivia
What you need: your brain and a topic. Try our wine and spirits trivia below, come up with your own or use an online trivia maker.

Whiskey trivia
Tequila trivia
Wine trivia

Cheers to being responsible.

A great host takes care of every little detail, especially when it comes to helping guests celebrate responsibly. For every occasion you plan, be sure to serve food, provide nonalcoholic options, and offer a safe ride home.
