What time better than summer to host a video game party? Warm weather, no school, and best of all, all your friends are free to have fun! The best way to spend your time this summer is to invite your friends over for an unforgettable party filled with games, snacks, and lasting memories. You can’t go wrong with that.
Choose your games, wisely
The most important component to a video game party is well, the games you pick. It can change the mood of the party so you want to select something that everyone will enjoy. A good tip is to ask your friends what games they would like to play before the party. If you like battling your friends as different characters, then Super Smash Bros. Ultimate might be the one for you.
If you enjoy playing solo and don’t mind sharing the controller, maybe you’ll enjoy a first person shooter. Just make sure whatever game you pick, charge your controller beforehand so the fun doesn’t have to stop. Ask your friends if they want to bring their own console, so if you have more than one, then the bigger the fun!
Snack it up
The best part of having all your friends around, is treating yourselves to delicious snacks. From chips to pizza, a party is time to let loose and eat food as good as the activities. If your party is themed then experiment with cool recipes to go along with it.
You can even have some fun with your food-choices and maybe combine some of your favorite snacks –– into one! Fried mac-n-cheese sticks anybody? Things could get messy, and since most of your guests aren’t gonna be eating with both hands, try to go for finger foods. That being said, try to make sure you’re well-stocked on plates, cups, and napkins. It’s a good idea to keep your food in a separate area so clean up will be easier.
What’s your theme?
Choose your own adventure, or in this case – a theme. Having cool decorations can add the finishing touches to elevate a party and create an experience. For a video game party, there’s so much you can do other than a few balloons. If you’re going for a Minecraft theme, try to find smaller cardboard boxes and have your friends try to build a fort. Speaking of forts, try to find some water guns and have your own Fortnite battle with your friends. Think of the details of your favorite game and try to make it a reality.
