If you and your core group of friends are remotely geek-like or even, as Wil Wheaton lovingly refers to his wife, "nerd-adjacent," then "The Big Bang Theory" is a nearly perfect party theme for you. The possibilities are nearly as infinite as the universe those beloved physicists (and engineer) seek to explain, but here are a few ideas to help you get started.
Invitations Any fan of the show knows that if there is one thing Sheldon loves to do, it is dictate. Often, when he is not sending "emphatic tweets," he disseminates new edicts and what he deems to be important information via memorandum or email. And just as it is when Leonard needs to find out about a new apartment rule, a "Memo from Sheldon" would be a great vehicle for getting the word out to friends about your upcoming shindig.
Costumes The good news is, you don't have to dress like the characters of the show, if you do want to, although that would be perfectly acceptable. If you want to cut down the number of guys dressing, and therefore acting, like the pathetically lecherous Howard Wolowitz, offer the option of coming as a favorite superhero, Star Trek character or other comic book or sci-fi icon.
Food If you are as crazily OCD as Sheldon, you could try to match the menu to the day of the week the way he does, of course. Otherwise, pizza or anything eaten with chopsticks would seem to be the way to go. Make sure to get the tangerine chicken, not the orange chicken, and to get the right condiments, though.
D©cor If you have sci-fi or comic book memorabilia - and you do if you are the geek you claim to be - have it all out around the party area. Under heavy protection, of course. If you don't want to risk that, get a lot of posters for various superhero movies and have at least one dry erase board hanging around with complex mathematical equations on it.
Activities Watching episodes of "The Big Bang Theory" could be fun and surreal at the same time, depending on how everyone is dressed and how into the role play of their costumes they are. Other options include playing video games as a group (Halo and Wii Rock Band to name a couple), watching any Star Trek movie or television show, TBBT trivia, and of course a rousing game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock."
