Alternative Game Night
A night of games is always a great date. Playing a game can be very telling of your date's personality; you can see whether or not they are competitive, communicative, sneaky, or subdued. However, some games can get a little old so MIX! is here to offer some alternative gaming ideas.
- Dominoes. Set ‘em up and let ‘em fall. This one is simple but
oh-so-much fun. Set up one huge Domino path or split into two for a
race. Use books for staircases of Dominoes or tie a string to one to
make it leap Tarzan-style from the edge of the table. Just be sure to
set them up carefully so not a single one is standing after that first
- Take cards from a trivia game and host your own game show. Imitate
TV personalities like Alex Trebek or Vanna White and set up your living
room with desks, buzzers, or spinning wheels. Make sure to dramatically
announce the prize for the winner prior to the start of your game.
- Set up shop and use Monopoly money. Each person gets a certain
amount of money, which they can then use to buy food, movies, or other
activities for them and their date throughout the night.
- If you have random pieces from old games, use them to create a new
game. Make up rules, design the game board (if you need one), and play
the night away.
