Festivities are in the cards. Invite your friends over for a little friendly (or fierce) competition at your game night with invitations for any amusement. Card sharks can make use of designs worthy of a night of baccarat in Monte Carlo—even if the game is Texas hold ‘em in the den. If you prefer modern board games over high-stakes tables, you’ll find invitations perfect for gathering your medieval settlers, castle keepers, and aspiring roller coaster moguls alike. Players who prefer more classic diversions will find invitations to a game of chess decorated in iconic checkerboard patterns. Meanwhile, in the digital era, an 8-bit graphic-inspired invitation pushes the start button on a late night of video games—hope you aren’t afraid of gobbling ghosts. If the evening’s agenda hasn’t yet been set in stone, you can still excite your audience with a festive design straight from the leaderboard. Hosts who are new to entertaining can get a bit of advice from party all-stars like kate spade new york and Crate & Barrel.
Once you’ve planned the events and picked out an accompanying invitation, use our online design tool to fill out the scorecard with your fonts and colors of choice and add an envelope liner and backdrop to fill out your sporting whites. Send out your invitation and encourage your guests to RSVP online, and quickly—first one gets to grab the best Monopoly piece. Use your event’s page to host a comment wall and post ground rules, sporting advice, and a few inspiring jock jams. After the winners have taken their victory lap, you can send a few photos from the heat of competition to the victors and also-rans—post the highlight reel in an online gallery.
If all that gaming left you fatigued, consider a less rousing future get-together. Browse our invitations for your next viewing party (because “binge-watching” is such an unkind phrase) or night of sports spectating. You’ve officially earned your spot in the dugout.
