A board game night with friends and family can bring people together who may be hungry for fun. But don’t let the expectations of a family gathering fool you! Feeding a hungry crowd can be made easier by planning for how many people will be at the party.
Some easy meal ideas for a big group can be:
If you are going host a party that is not at home, consider if there is a microwave or oven to use in the location of your party.
For parties that you need a snack to feed people while playing board games, provide snacks that don’t make too much of a mess, and are easy to clean up. You don’t want a snack that leaves fingers greasy, cheesy, or too sticky and messes up your games in your board game library.

Prepare ahead of time for a board game night with friends by planning for your project. Use a Free Printable Planner Page to plan your space, games, time-line, food plans, and more.
Start by planning what day you want to have friends over. Ask them when they want to start playing, what games they’re interested in playing. Let them know if you plan on providing all the food, or if they will have to chip in some money or bring their own food.
If you need to reserve a space at a community gaming area, do so well in advance. Some game stores have side-rooms that allow for gameplay after hours. Ask the manager ahead of time if the space is available and follow the rules for the store.
Beyond general snacks and treats, you can even make some food that relates to the type of gameplay you are focusing on. Board game night themes can include an assortment of styles of games, geekery, nerdiness, and all together a lot of fandom culture.
If you plan on making a game night theme based on fandom, try to think outside the box. Apply shapes of food, punny food names, and cool combinations that relate to your theme.
Some ideas of basic game night themes are listed below:
