Being a college student, you are going to find that there are some insane ideas out there when it comes to partying. There’s one that essentially requires you to pass out, another that requests that you show up with anything but clothing on, and, hell, there is even one that turns out all the lights and has you fumbling around in the dark; but then there is the Box Party. Sounds innocent enough, right? Well, it would be if it didn’t completely revolve around the over indulgence of alcohol. What’s a Box Party, you ask? Well, let’s take a look at the setup…
So, how do you set up for something called a box party? The first thing you do is find boxes. Sounds simple enough and it doesn’t matter what kind, really, so long as they’re fairly big. Cardboard boxes work fine; just make sure they’re a little sturdy and not falling apart. You’re going to take these boxes and you’re going to place them in the middle of several different rooms. This party is kind of a competition / hostage-esque situation, because those boxes aren’t going to remain empty – but the only way to leave the room is to make them empty. What’s going to be in them, you ask? Well…
A whole bunch of alcohol. Seriously. Bottles, cans, whatever you can get your hands on. It doesn’t even have to be one set type of alcohol. You can have cans of beer nestled up with nice tall bottles vodka, rum, scotch – you name it, you can have it. Want to get creative? Throw flavored beverages in the same box as to create a theme. Try caramel vodka with some peppermint schnapps. It’ll give guests something think about as they kick back glass after glass of alcohol.
Until that box is empty, guests can’t leave the room. It sounds so easily stupid to set up for, and that’s because it really is. Your biggest dilemma is going to be finding a place to put all of your guests, and really, in your dorm, that simply comes down to finding enough people in your building willing to join the party and host a slew of drunken fools.
What to Wear?
Wear nothing that you like. Have a favorite pair of pants? Yeah, leave them at home for this. While the party should be pretty tame, you’re shoving a bunch of people into one room with a box full of alcohol – there is a large margin for error. Otherwise, you are free and clear to wear whatever it is that you feel like wearing. You could even take the theme one step further and show up wearing nothing but a box! The options are limitless!
Okay, not really. Just wear clothes.
