Board Games and Bubbly

It’s time for a blast from the past! Pop open the board game closet and blow the dust off – it’s game night! Break out the original card games, your favorite murder mystery, or any classic game, and go back in time with family and friends.

Invite your guests to bring their favorite game from their youth and set up stations to rotate through during the night. We guarantee a competitive and fun night as you relive old memories.

Set up a tournament-style competition and see who will bring the heat to game night. Create a posterboard with brackets pitting friends against each other, or post to your Instagram Stories and have your followers vote to see who they think will become the reigning champion.

Make a blue ribbon or a paper crown decorated with gems and glitter for the winner to wear and show off their unbeatable board game skills. Don’t forget to share who the winner is with your followers¬– they’ll be waiting for the update!

Of course, you can’t have a #Throwback night without the snacks to match! This is the time to bake mini pizza bagels, hot dog nuggets and even peanut butter banana bites. But don’t forget to also pop a bottle of KORBEL California Champagne to celebrate the winner and the supporters. Everyone deserves a treat!
