Video games are like life: a bewildering maze filled with challenges, where the only way to get ahead is to have your pet dinosaur eat the boss. Take a break from reality with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a four-hour private video-game party from Mobile Gaming Events Fort Lauderdale, with service within a 30-mile radius of zip code 33444 (a $400 value).
Mobile Gaming Events Fort Lauderdale outfits indoor or outdoor shindigs with four video-game-console rigs that sport a huge library of the latest in pixel-based entertainment. Ideal for birthdays, office events, or souped-up sleepovers, the friendly staff sets up four 36-inch TVs, 16 cushioned chairs, and a choice of four consoles from a selection of three Xbox 360s and two Wii gaming units. Players can power up any of 38 different games to drag-race friends in Mario Kart, out-dunk parents in NBA 2K11, or settle cubicle land grabs with office mates in Call Of Duty: Black Ops. Party planners can relax while the crew handles all the heavy lifting as they both set up and break down the 10'x10' gaming units. For outdoor events, a large tent shades in-the-zone video gamers from the sun’s glare and the distracting flashes of seagull paparazzi. Dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis; Groupon holders can call ahead and check the online calendar for availability.
Mobile Gaming Events
Mobile Gaming Events’s owner Jessy gives a new definition to "playing outside." With stations that can be set up beneath tents, his team of gaming experts let party guests play Xbox 360 and Wii consoles amid fresh air and spectating squirrels (game stations can also be set up indoors). Thirty-six-inch TVs or projector screens beam the familiar faces of characters from dozens of games, such as Halo 3 and Mario Kart. Mobile Gaming Events crew also brings along dance pads so players can master DDR and microphones so they can belt out karaoke.
