For years I'd hold events at my house. I'd call these events Game Night. During Game Night, men and women would come to my home and we'd play games such as Win, Lose or Draw, Charades, Name That Tune, Jeopardy, and various other games. Most time it would be a battle of the sexes as men would consistently trounce the women. The music was great, the alcohol was flowing and everyone had a great time.
If we didn't do something at the house, then we'd go out for our "Date Night." Going out, usually to the movies and dinner, was another way I could bring people together for networking and fun. Many times we'd have over 10 couples joining us. People would always tell me how much they enjoyed the evening.
It's time to bring that fun back. Introducing.....Game On!!
Game On!! combines the excitement of competition and games with the hilarious nature of comedy, the smoothness of poetry, and the fun and entertaining atmosphere of music.
