Whether it’s a big party with friends and family or a small celebration with best friends, lover or partner, games help get people mixing and talking to each other.
Board game parties are popular and you can have a selection of games so if there are a lot of people, they can choose their group and game.
You can also make one game the theme of the party – eg play Cluedo and everyone has to dress as Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum etc.
For day time parties, garden parties and family gatherings, having some physical games will get people mixing and use up youthful energy in a positive way.
