Can you believe it's September already?! I hope you had a great summer, I know I did. I feel like I should be hitting-the-ground-running this Fall a little more than I already am, but now is as good a time as any to begin!
So, as motivation for myself (and hopefully for you too) I wanted to make this quick list of possible events to get the creative juices flowing. We, as entertainment managers and producers, are required to "bring the energy" every time we grab a microphone. This year will be no different, and here's some ideas to get ready.
1. Host An "End Of Summer" Party
The actual last day of Summer is September 23rd this year, but I'd say anytime from now until the end of the month will be fitting for an End of Summer party. This is a casual affair that doesn't require over-the-top decorations to succeed. A couple low burning tiki torches would be nice, but cool beverages and solid tunes will suffice.
Games to play:
a) Golden Oldies - Music Bingo
A classic for all audiences. Elvis Presley, Ritchie Valens, etc. If you are expecting kids, you can get a similar feel from the "Body Parts" music bingo game, that they will be more inclined to appreciate.
b) Life's A Beach - Music Bingo
Casual, and a little "twangy" this game encompasses the mellow feel of the beach, a summer well-enjoyed, and a general relaxation.
c) The 90s or Hair Bands - This choice kind of depends on the crowd you expect. If you expect generally 30-somethings, I recommend The 90s to really get the mood going later in the evening. Hair bands is a better mix of eras for a more diverse crowd.
2. A New "Happy Hour" Show, Featuring Triv101
Our newest addition this Fall will be Triv101, a "darts" like, survey-style trivia game made specifically for Trivia Hosts who enjoy simply printing off the Q & A and Answer Sheets for their shows. After that, all you need is a mic (or a hearty bellow), and you are ready to go. Each round has 10 Questions and a Bonus. The team who scores closest to 101 wins the round.
Watch for this game in the Trivia Store.
3. Get Excited For Your Halloween Party
4. Video Game Trivia Night
This 3-pack of games is sure to have the most gamer enthusiasts entertained. Have a winner for each game, or bring back your highest scoring teams for a Final Tournament edition.
There are also Video Game bingo cards, that would be a great warm-up. Name that theme!
5. Have A Mega-Happy Christmas Party "Game Show"!
Whether you'd like one of our hilarious game show hosts to come to you with full Audio / Visual setup, dance lights, and mojo.. or if you prefer to save money this Christmas and host the event yourself, you will enjoy the interactive games we've created. This game is specifically designed to get people on their feet and mingling about. Check out the new-and improved Xmas game in the Trivia Store or Contact Us if you are looking for a host too!
