Going out with friends or family can be a nice treat, but it can also be done differently. An office, for example, can have some outings. It could be a celebration, a team building, or just a simple getaway to know about each other. It will be nice to have time away from the office and work and just relax.
No matter what the reason will be, activities are a must for this, so that everyone can have fun and can get to know more about each other. Because these getaways are often done with staying in and overnights, night activities are done. It will be hard to do some action sports if the lighting is not that good, but there are still a variety of activities that can be done.
1. Hide and Seek
This is a game that is well-known and can be done by all ages. You also have different options on how to play it. You can easily add a twist to this classic game to make it more interesting especially if it is done in a dark place. One version that is usually done by older people is one with tapping sticks. The players will need to have a pair of sticks and tap it every minute they are not found. But the twist to this though is that they can move around, so seeker will be more challenged because of it. You can also think of other twists and versions that will be more challenging and fun for adults.
2. Murder in the Dark
Another classic and popular game for all ages. This involves having a whole room dark. Then each player will have their own role. They could be the detective or police officer, the murderer, or the victim. It could be decided either by a deck of cards or writing it in a piece of paper. The detective will come out of the room and the murderer will start “killing” the victims. After that, the detective will come in with the lights on and everyone else will freeze. They will need to guess who the murderer is with some questions. Once they guess it, the detective will win but if not, the murderer will win.
3. Capture the Flag
This will be an activity perfect to play outside. It can be done during day or night. Because of that, you can do it in alternative ways. The aim is to have the team get the flag of the opposing team. But of course, that will not be easy for there will be a defense or obstructions before they can get it.
It does not have to be all physical, You can also play a game that is more quiet and chilled. Mafia is one of those examples. It could be described as a relaxed version of Murder in the Dark. But this one involves everyone in a circle, and there will be a leader who will choose which will be the mafia, the townspeople, the doctor, and the detective. Then all of the players will shut their eyes, and the leader will ask the mafia to open their eyes to point out who would they like to kill. They can be saved by the doctor if they will guess right. Then the detective will point out who are the guilty ones. After that, if it is not resolved, the players will have to guess who they think are the guilty ones and needs to be eliminated. Of course, the mafia will have to play along with this. This goes on until the game is finished.
