Video games were originally invented by the military as a way to teach men and women in uniform how to effectively leap over barrels and which color of ghost is safe to eat. Avoid foul-tasting ghosts with today's Groupon for Strafe Gaming Lounge, located in Fuquay-Varina. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get an unlimited one-day pass for two people (a $30 value).

- For $125, you get a three-hour birthday party for up to 20 guests (up to a $250 value).
Strafe Gaming Lounge pairs the excitement of an arcade with the laid-back social characteristics of a lounge. Game gourmands choose from hundreds of titles for Wii, Xbox, and PS3, setting up camp in semiprivate gaming rooms with rocking chairs, couches, and 42" high-definition TVs. A family-friendly environment, Strafe Gaming Lounge holds special hours for preschool gamers, while of-age console commandos can imbibe responsibly by BYOBing after 8 p.m. A high-def 100" projector is also available for stadium-sized gaming, such as Rock Band 2, or Blu-ray movie viewing. Choose unlimited gaming for a day or month, or take over the entire lounge for a three-hour birthday party, bringing cake and gaming together more effectively than your failed Atari title Baker Time.
Strafe Gaming Lounge
Strafe Gaming Lounge cultivates a casual, family-friendly setting around a simple central concept: make gaming social. The facility achieves this goal, in part, with its semiprivate gaming stations outfitted with cushioned furnishings and 42-inch high-definition TVs—as well as a roster of systems that includes four Xbox Ones, three PlayStation 4s, two Wii Us, five Playstation 3s, Nintendo Wii, and classic Nintendo 64 and Atari consoles. Video games aren't the only attraction, though: a 100-inch HD projection screen hosts gaming tournaments and film screenings. Inventive programs such as technology camps for kids and all-night gaming lock-ins provide even more ways for guests to come together.
