We are taking some of the best parts of our gaming parties and creating a virtual offering that is safe, easy, and tons of fun.
Glad you asked! A virtual gaming party is a party that connects everyone through a private chat room, even when they are miles away.
Great question! Virtual gaming parties are stress-free by design.
Our expert, experienced, videogame-centric team will provide the same first-class service that our parties are known for. We look forward to serving you and your family soon!
How many can join and play?
Up to 24 guests can join and play at your virtual gaming party.
Is there an age limit?
We recommend this experience for ages 8 and up.
Do you still come to my house?
Virtual gaming parties are held online and do not include a personal visit from our team.
Who can join the party? Is it private?
Only you and your guests can access the party. The secure connection is safe and private.
What games/consoles can be used?
Most multiplayer games on Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Xbox One, Sony Playstation 4, Personal Computers and even Mobile devices can all be used during your virtual gaming party.
What equipment will I need accessible?
Virtual gaming parties may require common devices, consoles, systems and games between you and your other party members. Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Xbox One, Sony Playstation 4, Personal Computers and even Mobile devices can all be played during your virtual gaming party.
In addition, while your party will have chat accessible for guests to communicate with one another, having access to a microphone or headset will enhance the experience of playing with your friends by allowing voice chat between you and your party members.
Do I need the same device, console or system to play with my friends?
It is recommended to have platforms in common with your friends, however, many major titles now also offer cross-platform play. It is recommended that you discuss this topic with your friends prior to the party so everyone knows what you want to play and can be ready to make the most of your time and get right into the action!
Will online play require any subscriptions?
Depending on the console and platform you’re playing from, some online content may require additional purchases to play or utilize specific services. This varies based on the title and platform but if your child already plays the game, it’s likely they already have everything required to play it.
What does the GameCoach do?
The GameCoach is the virtual gaming party facilitator. They get the party started, help guests connect, and monitor the chat between players.
How is this different from my kids playing at home?
The virtual gaming party experience is different than playing at home for a few important reasons:
Do parents need to supervise?
Parental supervision is optional. The GameCoach is the primary supervisor for virtual gaming parties.
