Boys Night Out: 7 Essential Items for a Successful Poker Night

Finally! Your significant other is out of town visiting her parents or spending some time with her friends. This of course calls for a Poker night with you and your best buds! We have created a list of 7 essential items to hosting a successful poker night. For your convenience, we have split the 7 items into two time-frames: Pre-Festivities, Poker Night, and Post Party.

Pre-Festivities

1. Invite your friends, set a date.

How often do your nights out go as planned? With conflicting schedules and busy work lives, it’s hard to get all of your boys out together! The first thing you need to do to host a successful poker night is to send out a clear, straightforward invitation. Try sending out electronic invitations a week or two in advance (see our designs). Make sure you get RSVP’s so you know how many people to expect!

2. Set the Ground Rules.

Make sure the ground rules for the night are clear. Commonly enforced protocol include the “No Wives” rule or the “ No Cashing out Early” rule. Feel free to inject laws personalized for your specific group of friends. When our intern, Cliff, hosts Poker Night, he sets a rule that participants have to bring candy to share. They are a bunch of sweet tooths. read more…
