I’m curious how board games at the reception went, for those of you who had these.
I love the idea, but I can’t imagine using it as a centerpiece (can’t play until final plates are cleared, and even then – wouldn’t it get all dirty? And, until then, you are just looking at a game…..
I think a section for games would work well -but is there competing noise from the music/dance floor?
Did the games prohibit the guests taking place in other activities (because they were immersed in the games?)
Just curious from those who have done this – how many games (and which ones) did you have and how did you have it setup?

We’re trying to do this for our reception I’m curious as to how it will work out as well. We’re going to do small travel games like the hasbro express games, trival pursuit singles, travel boggle, etc. We’re thinking about putting two or three at each table so while people are waiting for us to arrive or if they don’t feel like dancing they can play (also mingle a bit! sneaky us!). Not sure if that’s what you’re going for or if you were more thinking single board game at each table. After the wedding whoever wants to take our mini-board games can and those we’re leftover with we will keep or donate.

We’re using them as centerpieces. I’m not worried about them getting dirty nor the guests looking at them as they eat, I think that they’re more interesting to look at than a floral arrangement, but that’s just me.
We’ll probably also have another table set up for cards and other games if guests want to start playing before the plates are cleared. Our venue also has other things to do and the guests are free to wander around, so I’m thinking of the games as more of a "play if you want" than something that all the guests will definitley do. I’m not really expecting anyone to play, but I will be tickled pink if they do!
