Star Wars Teen Movie and Game Night


I don’t know about you, but game nights are my favorite kind of nights, especially when game nights are based on one of the best movies. Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film was one of my families favorite Star Wars movies. After hearing that the movie was coming to DVD and BluRay, my brothers and I decided to have a game night, but make it Solo themed. When we were done with playing the game, we would go inside and watch the movie.

We first started setting up by taking the Han Solo Monopoly game board and set it up outside on a blanket. We then threw some comfy Chewbacca blankets and pillows to make the space even more comfortable. We then waited for the sun to set and began our family game night. My little brother was immediately in love with the entire thing; his favorite part was the fact that we watched the movie after the game because who can resist a good Star Wars movie?

We had some friendly family competition as we rolled the dice and played the best-themed Monopoly game ever! My older brother had fun reciting some of his favorite lines from the movie as we played the game. One of my favorite things was that while we played Monopoly, we were reminded of some of the key points and events of the movie since the cards and properties we from the actual film. It worked as a great review game before going inside to watch the movie.

The time finally came for us to watch the movie in the comfort of our own home with a BluRay machine. My older brother eventually won the game, but none of us were mad because we knew what awaited us inside. We brought our blanket inside to the sofa and began the Solo film. We watched as Han Solo figured out his whole way through the galaxy and tried to find his way home.

My brothers and I ended the night by sharing our favorite parts of the game and movie and heading up to bed. Solo: A Star Wars Story is now available on DVD and BluRay so that you can have a movie night of your own!
