I love game nights! We host them quite frequently since we have a great living room space.

Generally, we provide pizza, chips & dip/salsa, fresh cut veggies (like cucumbers, carrots and celery), crackers and cheese, and something sweet like cookies/cupcakes. Obviously we don’t always have all of that, but our guests always seem pretty happy with a mixture (and now that it’s a frequent thing, often they’ll bring stuff so we only end up getting the pizza and making a sweet treat).

I don’t think you’ll need to decorate for it. But I would provide some finger foods like buffalo chicken dip, bruschetta, cheese sticks, etc.

@MissCalifornia:  This sounds pretty much like what we always do.

And OP – you definitely don’t need to decorate!

You don’t need to decorate. I’d have snacks as well as something more substantial, like sandwiches or quesedillas or hot dogs or something. And definitely drinks! Maybe make sangria.

Like PP said, you do not need to decorate. I would just provide regular snacks. Unless you said you’d provide heavy apps, people [should] assume they need to eat before hand. Also, do NOT forget to provide drinks 🙂


…Just as a side note, if you’re having chips and salsa don’t let Mr.TKE anywhere near it! The last time we had game night he went to pick up the jar and spilled 1/2 of it on our carpet…

We do game nights too! Just had one this past saturday.  I usually go with things that can be “one bowl” if you’re doing a meal.  I’ve done things like chili, soups, even pastas sometimes.  In addition, you could do snacks that are less greasy. 🙂

When we host, we do a full meal because we love to cook. The way our group works it is that the host makes the main course, and the other couples bring side dishes and dessert. That way the cost and work don’t fall solely on the host. I find that burgers/hotdogs/brats, lasagna/baked ziti, chili/soup, and pulled pork/chicken/beef sandwiches all work well for feeding a big group.

Edit: Our group does not bother to decorate. It’s a low key night.
