Tips In Getting Things Started
So now that you’ve lined up your virtual games, liven up the online party some more! Even though you’re not meeting in person, there are things you should consider for your game night.
- Set a theme. It does not have to be super detailed. (but there’s no one to stop you if you decide to go all out!)
Examples: 80’s Vibe, Superheroes, Animal Farm, Beach theme, Fright Night
- Guestlist. Who’s coming? Is this an all-adult party or kid-friendly?
- Invitations. Are your guests allowed to bring friends of their own or is this a more intimate gathering of your closest friends? Veebo invites have loads of templates to match your theme.
- Snacktime! What is a party (virtual or not) without food? Or booze for that matter. Whip out the cheese platter and pop the wine!
