Frequently Asked Questions
How does a Bring the Game Over Party work?
We aim to take away the stress and hassle of organising a party by bringing our Mobile Gaming Arcade van to your home or chosen venue. We arrive 15-30 minutes before your booking time to set up and allow time to discuss appropriate games your guests would like to play. We remain at your location whilst entertaining up to 14 people at any one time. We create an immersive, fun, competitive atmosphere all within our gaming van for your guests.
What games do you have?
We have an extensive games library to choose from with something for everyone.
The selection of games differs in age ratings and genre including football, basketball, racing, wrestling, building, fighting, shooters and everything in between. For those looking for a touch of nostalgia, we also hold popular retro games. The games library is continuously being updated; we have our fingers on the pulse and buy all the latest and greatest games and state of the art consoles as they come out. We carry multiple copies of popular titles to allow tournament and match play.

Absolutely, you are only being charged for the hire of our van, audiovisual equipment, staff and to cover overhead costs. You are more than welcome to use any of your privately owned games but please be aware time to load these games will be taken out of the session.
Is it safe?
The van has been built using only top quality materials that have been professionally installed to meet regulation standards. All equipment is PAT tested annually to ensure safe and reliable operation. There are 2 large unblocked exits at the back and front of the arcade area.
Will the seating arrangement affect eyesight?
During the design of the gaming van, we measured the distances between eyes and screens. We follow guidelines set by manufacturers and have chosen a 49” TV as opposed to 55” and 27.5” monitors instead of 32” TVs.
Due to eye development, we do not recommend that children under the age of 12 use the Virtual Reality headset.
