My Favourite Games

Autumn is just around the corner and it's almost the time of year where cosy nights in are obligatory. The perfect evening is when you're wrapped up in the most cosy, over-sized furry dressing gown, playing games by the fire and drinking the most comforting, marshmallow filled hot chocolate that tastes so much better at this time of year. On cosy weekends in, I love nothing more than eating a gigantic roast dinner and following that with a few drinks and games throughout the evening. Don't get me wrong, I like classic games such as monopoly, guess who and scrabble, but lately, I have been loving games that are a bit more unique (FYI - some of the following games make great drinking games!). 

Starting off with my favourite game - the pub quiz. I have had the pub quiz game for over a year now and Jonny and I still haven't answered all of the questions (there's 1, 000). The questions are really varied and are split between ten categories: history, literature, geography, maths, film, music, science, quotations, sports and arts. The game comes with quiz cards, answer pads, scoreboard poster, six coasters, chalk and a winner's trophy, so it feels like you are bringing the pub to your house. The pub quiz would be great to play with a large number of people so you can split up into teams! Easy drinking game: drink when you get the question wrong - for me that's nearly every question haha. 

Now onto a new game I have discovered recently - Prosecco Pong. Talking Tables have the most exciting and innovative games and many of their games have quickly become firm favourites. Jonny and I loved playing prosecco pong and surprisingly, I wasn't that bad because it ended in a draw! This is a game which I can see myself using for special occasions like Christmas and New Year's Eve. Prosecco pong would also be so much fun at party's and would be the great way to start the night! The set includes twelve prosecco glasses and three pretty pink ping-pong balls. All you need to add is a splash of prosecco into each glass and you're good to go! You can either play one on one or split into teams. The aim of the game is to throw the ping-pong balls into a glass from the opposing team which results in them downing their drink - yum!

Boggle - I like this one because it's the game that I always win! Boggle is a pretty classic game in which you have to find as many words as you can in the grid before the sand timer runs out. It's a fun one to play at any point in the day as it only takes three minutes!

Now onto another quiz game - right brain, left brain. This game is all about testing whether you're more right-brained or left-brained and comes with two hundred trivia questions. The left brain trivia questions are more logical and include topics such as science and maths, whereas the right brain trivia questions are more creative and include questions about arts and using your imagination. I enjoy this game as it's a fairly quick game (we don't ask all of the two hundred questions, just pick a random selection from each side) and it's a fun little psychology experiment too. I'm definitely more right-brained than left!

As you can tell, I love the quiz games! I have my eye on the quirky pub quiz next or snakes and ladders trivia edition. What are you favourite games? Are you excited for Autumn?
