The Ultimate Guide to Hosting An Adult Board Game Night This Summer

Summer is the perfect time to gather friends and family for a fun-filled games night at home. With longer days and warmer evenings, what better way to spend time together than diving into one of the best board games for adults? Whether you're a seasoned gamer or just looking to add some competition to your usual gatherings our guide will help you host an unforgettable games night.

Set the Scene

First things first, create a welcoming environment. Comfortable seating, good lighting, and a clean space are essential. If you’re hosting outdoors, consider string lights or lanterns for ambiance. Indoors, clear off your dining table or set up a dedicated gaming area with plenty of snacks and drinks within reach.

Adult Board Game Selection: The Heart of the Night

The success of your games night hinges on your choice of games. Why do we love ourgame so much? Because it is the perfect board game for adults and kids to play at home oreven at the beach. With a wide selection of categories, almost guaranteed to get the competitivenessout of all the family.

To keep everyone engaged, mix up the genres and complexity levels. Here are three things to remember when you play Strong Point this summer.

  1. You make the rules. Yes of course we have game rules. But we are very lenient with our game rules. Want to add a family rule? Go for it! Don’t forget to let us know, as it may feature in future expansions!

  2. The person with the most points from answering their own questions plus strong points from their predictions wins, but remember 10 strong points automatically wins! Seems easy enough right? But how well do you know who you’re playing with?

  3. Set an alarm. Those long summer nights can quickly turn into early summer mornings when you’re focused on winning.

Add a Competitive Edge

To spice things up, introduce a friendly competition. Keep a scoreboard and offer small prizes for the winners. This can add an extra layer of excitement and encourage everyone to bring their A-game. Winner of Strong Point is the next BBQ host perhaps?

Creating Lasting Memories

A games night isn’t just about the games; it’s about the memories you create. Take plenty of photos, cheer each other on, and enjoy the time spent together. Whether your best score is enough to win the game, 0 or 10 points, sharing Strong Point, and any board game for that matter, is every bit as important as winning. Bringing people together to take part and play games is a strong point in itself.

Final Thoughts

Hosting a board games night this summer is a fantastic way to bring your favourite people together all under one roof. Enjoy each other's company and gain bragging rights if you win. Let the games begin!
