When it comes to birthday parties, you want yours to be the best. But sometimes planning can be hard. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of top ideas for your gamer partner. Whether they’re a fan of video games or board games, these are sure to make their day something special.
Have A Video Game Marathon
Who doesn’t love spending the day in front of the TV with their favorite games? If your gamer is a fan of gaming, you can plan an entire birthday party around playing as many different titles as they would like. You could even have everyone bring their system and create a huge tournament. This will be an unforgettable day of high scores and new games that they’ll be talking about for years. If you’re looking for a gamer birthday party that’s more casual, skip the marathon and have everyone bring their favorite games to share. You can even plan to play some of them together as a group. Some video games such as Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. are made for multiplayer, so this is a great way to bring everyone together in the spirit of friendly competition.
Board Game Night
Board Game Night is a great way to celebrate your gamer’s birthday. You can either suggest that they plan the event, or you can take charge and host it yourself. Either way, give them an idea of what games will be available for play from their selection ahead of time, so there are no surprises.
For example: Have them pick out two board games that everyone would enjoy playing beforehand if hosting this party at your house, then buy a copy of each to have multiple copies on hand for all players. If they want to make plans themselves, help guide them by encouraging some new choices while suggesting other fun options as well. Classics like Monopoly, Clue, or Life can always be a good time, but branching out to new games is always more fun. Try Ticket to Ride for a railway adventure or Boss Monster if they’re feeling extra creative. No matter what you choose, your gamer partner will love spending their birthday enjoying some friendly competition with friends.
A movie marathon is an excellent way to spend time together. It can be done at home or even in the theater, where you could order some good snacks and enjoy your favorite movies with your partner. If you opt for a theater, make sure that it also has food options too. The best part of this idea is that both video games and movies are fun, so everyone will have something they like about this party activity. You can go halfsies on picking out movies, or just let them decide what their favorites are if there’s anything specific they want to see. This birthday gift idea requires some planning, but once everything comes together, you’ll be glad that you put forth the effort into making things game night perfect.
There are movies based on games such as Warcraft or Tomb Raider. Some games have movies based on them, such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Prince of Persia, so you can do both if you love both games and movies equally. Additionally, you can do movies based on other games, like Star Wars or Harry Potter. There are countless possibilities for this birthday party idea, and it’s perfect because everyone will enjoy the selection of activities that is available to choose from. You could even put your twist on things by having a movie marathon-themed party, which makes it easier if you want to decorate using movie posters, snacks related to certain flicks, etc. It sounds complicated, but with some creative imagination and planning, anything is possible.
If you want to make your gamer partner’s birthday special, then surprise him or her with a party. Plan everything out in secret and have all of your friends and family ready to celebrate. You could even theme the party around one of their favorite games.
This is an option that will take a lot of work, but it will be worth it when you see the look on your partner’s face. Make sure to set up some gaming stations for everyone to enjoy, and prepare some delicious snacks and drinks themed after their favorite game. In the end, your hard work will create an amazing birthday experience that your partner won’t soon forget. Be sure to take lots of pictures and videos to commemorate the event.
No matter what you choose, make sure your gamer partner knows how much you love them and that you’re happy to celebrate their special day with them. These are just a few ideas to get you started, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to gaming birthday parties. With enough planning and creativity, you can make any one of them perfect for your partner.
