All players are divided into teams that play against each other. There are fun assignments for all players, because the subjects are very varied. This way, all knowledge and skill within the team can be used to beat the other teams.

How do you play the Envelope Game?

There are 40 envelopes hanging on a line (but if you prefer, you can also put them in a big bowl).The question is: what is inside those 40 envelopes? Your friends, family and colleagues can't wait to open them. A draw is made to determine which team begins. This team is the first to pick a random envelope from the line and play the task that is in that envelope

Before the task is played, the throw of a dice determines how many points can be scored for the question/task in question

Sometimes the team in this party game plays the assignment alone, but sometimes it is a duel against another team of your choice. There are also tasks and questions where suddenly all teams are allowed to participate.

Since there are 40 tasks and/or questions, each team gets 10 questions/tasks to play if there are for example 4 teams. There are also small, short games in this party game. And also some puzzles that you have to solve with your team. To give you an idea of the kind of questions and tasks, you can see a few example tasks below.

Some of the other topics you can expect to see are:

Abbreviations, Travel, Film, Music, Constellations, Logos, Culinary, Religion, Geography and Art. It's a surprise 40 times over..

Excitement until the end of the game

The Envelope Game is designed to be exciting right to the end, because there is always a team that can gain points from a task if the task is not completed correctly by the team that played the task. So when you have to choose another team, who could possibly win points by playing against you, do you choose the team that is on top? Hell, no. And so each team has a chance to win the game until the end.

So one moment you are the champions of the evening and the next you and your team are at the bottom of the table again.

Who knows the most and/or plays the smartest?

This is a party game that is not only about ready knowledge, but also about puzzle skills and tactical game insight. Easy to play and very simple to prepare. Even the family member or friend who doesn't like games will turn into the most fanatical player!

Game master

Choice of playing digitally or with envelopes

The Envelope Game is available in two different versions for the game master.

You can decide whether you want to print the questions and tasks and put them in envelopes (or fold them up) or play the game digitally. For the latter, you will of course need to bring a tablet, laptop or similar device.

Required materials
