Live Long and Party: An Epic Star Trek Game Night

Admit it, you’re a Trekkie.

You’ve seen Star Trek Beyond, okaym maybe more than once, and now you’re jonesing for more.  You’ve busted out your DVDs of the previous movies. You’ve put on your headset and tried the latest Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday.  You’ve even changed your cell phone notification to that communicator beeping sound.  Somehow this is still not enough.  It’s time to warp into action with a galactically cool game night.

For trivia buffs, there is of course, Star Trek 50th Anniversary Trivial Pursuit.

As well as the DVD game version, Star Trek Scene It?

Integrate a digital element without the distraction of viewing one of the movies during your party.  You can create a slide show of comics, photos, and memes. Play it on your tv, tablet, or laptop where guests can view it.

Last but definitely not least, nothing will bring the Star Trek universe into your home like the  sights and sounds from the show.  Many soundtracks are available to buy, and you can make your own mix of actual sound effects and music.  If you are an Amazon Prime member, there are even some fantastic albums available to stream for free.

Live long and party.
