Stag Parties
A high octane blast around the battle arenas or fighting zombies with a few beers (or perhaps shots for the 'losing' team!) with the rest of the lads before the main event? Hell, yeah!

What's it all about?

These are enhanced packages designed for the most special of 'boys together' events - the stag do. In recent years we have seen a big increase in the number of events we host and since they require, shall we say, some extra attention, we have created some new, unique packages based on our experience that we know will deliver the goods. These packages are often used for birthday events or pre-gig or clubbing warm ups ... or just as a way of getting together for a noisy blast with a few beers and some good friends.

These events are fantastic ice breakers for groups who may not (yet) know each other and act as a great warm up for the main event later on. Don't forget, we're slap in the town centre, within a minute's walk of hotels, clubs and the station. The perfect meeting place! Geeking out is (finally) cool.

How does it work?

Your choice of 2 or 4 hours PC network gameplay on the games that have stood the test of time! Play as a team, or for more fun, as enemies! Package includes one beer (or shot) per head per hour (eg 4 beers in a 4 hour hour event each, 2 in a 2 hour event each - more can be purchased if required) All packages include a main meal each also.

Basic packages are 'non exclusive' ie members of the public may come and go during your event, but you still get a dedicated staff member. Basic packages are most cost effective for groups between 6 (minimum required for all bookings) and 10.

Groups of 10 or more will always benefit from the VIP package which has the following advantages:
- Exclusive and private use of entire first floor gameszone, including the sofa areas, all spare PCs, and the Xbox 360 and/or Xbox One. You can even bring your own games!
- Make as much noise as you like and strut around like you own the place! Put the TV on, switch the lighting to 'gaming mode', hell, just put your feet up and relax if you want!
- Exclusive bookings can use speakers as well as (or instead of) headsets. This creates a much better 'buzz' than headsets alone.
- Group price - price split evenly up to a maximum of 16 players

A great afternoon activity to pump you up ready for the main event. Don't worry about the mess, we'll clear it up!

No matter what booking you choose, every attendee can plug in their phone to the chargers provided at every PC so you're set for the night without having to worry about running out of juice. We'll also take some photos (unless you tell us not to) and send them to your group organizer after your event, so you'll have memento with everyone in it! There's no extra charge for this, it's all part of the service!

What games can we play?

There are many, but the favourites are almost always Half Life 2 Deathmatch, Unreal Tournament, Counter Strike, Left for Dead 1 or 2 and so on. For the strategists amongst you, the old classics such as Red Alert 2 and 3, Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars, Age of Empires II, Empire Earth and many others are ready to play. The game selection is designed so that even complete newbies will be able to join in and do some damage within a short period. Don't worry, we'll provide training and keep someone on hand to offer hints where needed.

The room can get very noisy ... that's fine, that's what we're here for!

How much does it cost?

There are four fixed packages shown below. These usually yield the best results and don't forget that food and drink is included! Should any extras be required, they can be purchased during the session. No need to get up, we'll bring it to you!

A simple non exclusive booking, with dedicated staff member and access to all the PC games available. One main meal per head is included, as is one beer/shot/single shot mixer per person per hour. Minimum booking 6, maximum 16, but please note that groups of 10 or more will always get better value with the 2 hour VIP FRAG FEST below.
Per head fee: £25

All the benefits of the basic frag fest, but with a totally exclusive hire of the first floor - that means no interruptions from the pesky public! Enjoy the additional space, make as much noise as you like and, even better, use of the Xbox is included as standard. Play our games or bring your own, even download your own profile if you like, we don't mind! Any sized group can book a VIP FRAG FEST as it is a fixed hire charge, but the best value is achieved with 10 or more, up to a maximum of 16.
Fixed fee: £250

The same, but more! All the benefits of the 2 hour Basic Frag Fest, but twice as long and twice as many drinks! Minimum booking 6, maximum 16, but please note that groups of 10 or more will always get better value with the 4 hour VIP FRAG FEST below
Per head fee: £39

The ultimate package and yet, it will still seem to pass TOO quickly! All the benefits of the 2 hour VIP package, but twice as long and twice as many drinks, that's four beers/shots/mixers per person. Guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping for the main event! Any sized group can book a VIP FRAG FEST as it is a fixed hire charge, but the best value is achieved with 10 or more, up to a maximum of 16.
Fixed fee: £390
