At Masters Traditional Games, we often hear from people who are planning a wedding or any event and would like a few games scattered around for peripheral entertainment.
For information on games that can be the central theme of an event, please refer to our main Games Events page. For games that are fantastic as entertaining side attractions, read-on...
The games on this page will go down really well at all sorts of occasions including weddings, anniversaries, family socials, engagement parties, family parties, pre-dinner entertainment or the office Christmas party!
We've picked out games that look attractive and interesting, aren't too fragile, and are easy for people to have a go at without needing complex instructions beforehand!
Take turns to remove the wooden bricks from the stack and replace them on the top. The tension mounts until finally the inevitable happens and the stack tumbles down! We have probably the best range of Jenga and premium Giant Tower games available
The old pub classic works well at most events. If a person hasn't done it before, they'll need to be shown how to swing the ball and told that 3 swings constitutes a turn, but apart from that it is simplicity itself
Skittles games are great fun and perfect for warm weather weddings. We have a vast range of Skittles games that will provide plenty of light hearted entertainment for guests of all ages.
You might think that this would be a bit too serious for a party but large sets are incredibly eye-catching and it's astonishing how a Giant Chess set attracts a bevy of enthusiasts with adults, children and spectators all getting involved.
Shuffle Puck is played in a similar way to Air Hockey. Two players each have a paddle and they try to hit the puck into the opposition's net. The same fun but no need to plug it in!
Our Giant 4 in a Row range is ideal for parties, events and the back garden. Take turns to drop counters in at the top and be the first to get four in a row diagonally, vertically or horizontally.
We have a wide range of both indoor and outdoor table tennis tables. Great fun at parties and events. You could organise tournaments, or leave for free play.
This is a giant version of the modern classic table top game in which you pull out the straws but try not to let the balls fall to the bottom!
Giant Snakes & Ladders, where the players ARE the counters! There are a couple of optional additional twists that add to the enjoyment.
The straight-forward game with a single stake is great fun especially if you play the version where a 'ringer' cancels out the opponents 'ringers' underneath... The 'Cross Quoits' multi-stake games are less skillful and recommended more for young children
