Ideas for the Party Human

VARIATION: Science Fiction

Posted on: January 13, 2010

     This is another variation of the Capture-the-Flag Party posted earlier.

THEME:  A space-age setting, such as in the “Star Wars” or “Star Trek” movies

INVITATIONS:  Try to use the “highest-tech” format you can for inviting your guests, which would probably be something through email.  If this is not practical, the invitations could be computer printouts rolled or folded up, placed inside very small containers and delivered.  You could choose familiar characters from popular science fiction movies, television shows or books (such as members of the Alliance and the Empire, as in the “Star Wars” movies), or you can make up your own space-age characters in two opposing sides.  This party would be best for teen or young adults.

MATERIALS FOR ACTIVITIES:  Similar to the Mystery variation, posted earlier:  Large area of varied terrain; symbolic items such as flags or secret weapons, etc.; any other props desired, such as “ray” guns or other toy weapons, “communicators,” space helmets, binoculars, listening devices, etc.; long table(s) and chairs.

FOOD:  Since no one knows what space-age food will be like, try to serve the most exotic, modern dishes that you can.  The meal should be elaborate enough to qualify as a small banquet.

DECORATIONS:  For the most part, these will be restricted to the banquet area, though you could set up high-tech command centers for each team, if desired.  Decorate the table in an elegant and very modern way.  Let your imagination take hold!

BLOW-BY-BLOW:         Follow the same format as in the other variations, posted earlier.

An interesting idea this. I am 1 of individuals individuals whom have a tendency to wait for things to mature before taking action but in this situation I am mindful that inaction leads to only failures so I will heed your comments and begin to do something about this.

I’m not sure I understand your comment in regards to this party idea. If you’re referring to party planning–whether to plan ahead or not–then I concur that preparation is best.
