Even though lockdown is lifted, a lot of people don’t want to be going out and mixing just yet. Instead, people are staying in their smaller friendship and family bubbles, so I thought it’d be the perfect time to write about ideas for the ultimate night in. You can do any of these in your home or even garden, depending on your space and of course, the ever-changing weather.
You can buy a Murder Mystery game for around £10-£30 depending on what you’re after. You can get ones with CDs that play out the Detective part of if you have enough people, someone can play him! One of my friends did this at home and they decorated their living room, had a meal and drink all whilst playing a Murder Mystery game in dress up. It looked like an amazing night and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
You can go all out with different areas for poker, roulette, have a fully stocked bar and try out this live casino for UK players with your friends and family. You might not want to play for real money, so getting a casino chipset is a great way to get around that and make it feel even more real! You could set out prizes at the end of the night like a bottle of alcohol to take home for the person with the most chips.
Don’t already have your own game night with your friends and family? Have a watch of the film ‘Game Night’ and set it up! What’s funnier than a running scoreboard and having a laugh with your friends? You could play anything from Monopoly to Charades, even using phone apps for games like Heads Up. There are so many different things you could play and hours of fun to be had!
Is your bubble more sophisticated and love wine? Set up a wine tasting event. You could all chip in for a wine order or even try out a wine subscription box and use taste cards from the Internet to learn about tasting wine and describing wine the expert way. Of course, you’ll have to have an array of cheese and hams too, that’s the rules!
Do you ever fancy a proper cocktail at home but making something in a shaker with 5 ingredients seems like a lot of hassle? Turn it into an event! That way you and everyone there will be making fancy cocktails, you’ll have an excuse to bring out all of the kit, the fancy garnishes and drink 5* restaurant-worthy cocktails in the comfort of your own home.
