Introduction:Playing games with a group of other people is always fun, but it can be even more fun if you try to play the game in the dark. Some games need a little light to help but others can be fun with no light at all!

The following five games can be played at any time but are exceptionally useful to have in mind if you experience a power cut!

  • 01

    Capture the Flag

    This traditional game has made a strong comeback in recent years as Capture the Flag has created a new version with glow in the dark parts. The glow in the dark version of capture the flag has glowing territory markers, flags and even wrist bands to ensure you can see all the other players and the zone to play in.
    Capture the flag is best played outdoors although you do not necessarily need a huge amount of space!

  • 02

    Hide and Seek

    This traditional game has amused people for generations. It is brilliant because it is so simple! You need absolutely no tools although players, especially younger ones, may prefer to have a torch each.
    This game can be played inside or out but you must define the parameters to ensure you know where you should be looking. It is also worth having an agreed signal to end the game; so that people can come out of hiding.
    Even adults can play hide and seek; you may be surprised at how much fun it is.

  • 03

    Treasure Hunt

    This is another incredibly simple game which can be played in the dark and the only piece of equipment that you need is a torch for each person and a few reflectors. The reflectors are the treasure and need to be hidden within the designated playing space.
    Again, this can be played inside or outside. It is a great way of getting children outside or having some fun when you are camping or away from home. If you are playing with very young children it is best to create small teams; this will help to ensure no one is scared or gets lost in the dark.

  • 04

    Monsters

    You will probably have heard of the monster game by one of its many variants. It is a game that has been around for many years; just like capture the flag and the other games listed here.
    All you need to do is decide a space to play in and everyone separates. Each person is a monster, once the game starts everyone must move cautiously around the space to find the others. As soon as you tag someone you must shout 'gotcha'. This puts them out of the game.
    The last one untagged is the winner; although you may need a coding system to ensure everyone knows how when the game has finished. Playing in the dark makes this game exceptionally fun!

  • 05

    Sneak Attack

    The fifth game to make the list for night time activities is the sneak attack. This requires a flashlight and a piece of treasure. You can use a reflector from the treasure hunt game or a glow in the dark marker from capture the flag.
    One person stands at the front with the treasure and their back to everyone else. They will spin round and shine a torch every so often. If the beam of the torch hits you then you have to go back to the starting point. The aim is to get from the starting point to the front person and steal the treasure; without the flashlight hitting you!




Final Thoughts

There are many other night time games which can be played; all you need is a torch and some imagination!
