Last week, through HouseParty.com, I was given the opportunity to host a Hasbro Game Night at our house. It was a lot of fun! About two weeks before the party was supposed to take place, they sent me a “party pack.” It had three board games in it – Trivial Pursuit Bet You Know It (a new game that will be released in August), Taboo, and Electronic Catch Phrase. It also had six boxes of assorted variety Triscuits & Wheat Thins, a bag of Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Pieces, and coupons to give our guests. I really was surprised when such a huge box arrived on our doorstep.To get ready for the night, I kept it pretty simple. I put out the crackers with some assorted cheeses that we bought, making little labels for each:

I made some cupcakes and brownies to go along with the candy provided; gotta have sugar for game night, right?

We decided that we’d try playing the new Trivial Pursuit game along with Taboo, and we used Catch Phrase as a giveaway along with a Hasbro card game I bought. One of our friends’ daughters loved being the one to select the winner. :)

Games to Play:

Games for the Drawing:

We had a great time playing with our friends. We tried out Trivial Pursuit Bet You Know It first. The general consensus was that it was fun, and worth playing again. Some of the questions seemed a little too easy (Like: What barnyard animal represents an insurance company?) but for the most part the questions were on par with what we expected from Trivial Pursuit. We really liked the addition of subjects to this version. Each card had a subject listed on the end, like “China” or “Shoes.” All of the questions from each category relate to that subject, and you’re able to pick from several subject options. We think that’d be a nice addition to regular Trivial Pursuit, too.

I didn’t get too many photos of us actually playing games because, well, I was playing too! It was also hard to get everyone in the same shot around our long dining table – but here’s one I took:

Here’s the fun part – you know how I mentioned I bought a Hasbro card game for giveaway at the party? Well,  I bought one to give away here, too!
