Home Game Night
The game is hilarious, and even more so if you add some drinks into your evening (only if you’re 21+!). Deer Lord! is a social party game that lets you challenge other players to funny “duels’ and attempt to “dupe” each other with sneaky and secret actions that no one knows about. It’s hilarious trying to call your friends out and watch them (and you!) attempt crazy tasks. I might have had to act out being the Eiffel tower…just saying.
The game comes as one core box, but also has two updated editions, the “Broadway” and “Gangsta” expansion packs, that you can purchase to add on as well. You can find all of the Deer Lord! options at your local Target retail stores!

A game night just wouldn’t be successful without snacks! Pick options that are easy to eat with your hands and are small bites. That way guests can munch while playing! I served Tuscan chicken flatbread, an assortment of different meats, cheeses, nuts, olives, and crackers, and then the BEST marshmallow popcorn. (Seriously, this popcorn is to die for guys!) And, luckily, I’m sharing the recipe with you too! 😉
For drinks, create your own custom cocktail, themed around your evening, or serve bottled sodas or beer to keep the party going. Bottled beverages are easy to keep cold, and make popping and serving them a breeze, instead of getting stuck playing bartender all night long.
I stuck to the same color palette as the Deer Lord! game, so I picked out black and white napkins and white and gold plates and straws. I’m definitely a sucker for a good white and black color palette. I especially love using disposable serving ware when entertaining too, because it eliminates a lot of the clean up after the party ends. The last thing I want to do after a late home game night, is stay up for hours washing dishes and cleaning the house. No thanks!
Remember that delicious popcorn? Read below to find out how to whip up your very own batch!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 1 (10 Ounce) Bag Mini Marshmallows
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 1/2 Bags Popped Popcorn
Spread the popped popcorn onto a cookie sheet.
Place butter, marshmallows, and brown sugar into a large microwave safe bowl.
Microwave for one minute and then stir to combine. Microwave again for another 60 seconds until completely melted.
Pour the marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and mix. It is very sticky, but worth the mess! (You can use cooking spray or butter on your spoon to make it a little bit easier!)
Let the popcorn set for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
Easiest (and most delicious!) popcorn recipe ever! Trust me, you’ll be making this batch again. 😉
You guys should definitely consider hosting your very own home game night. They are a fun and easy way to entertain with friends without putting in a lot of work and party decor! And don’t forget to pick up your own box of Deer Lord! It’s definitely a fun game and enough fun that we are all already planning our next one!
