For People Who Like Office Parties That Are Actually Fun

"Employees were in awe at how many games were available—they couldn’t decide which one to play first! There were tons of games that people had never seen or heard of before—But that’s okay, because [the host] knew the rules and whims of EVERY game, and is there to walk you through them all. After each event we've held, employees have become so obsessed with a new game that we ended up purchasing it! We can't wait to have BoardGame Empire back again!"

So how does a BoardGame Empire private party work you ask? Well we've got two options. The first is that we basically turn your event into a board game fiesta. A host shows up at your office party, birthday, fundraiser, university, lawn mower enthusiast convention, whatever. They bring 60+ board games with them and people can play whatever they want. If folks want to try something new, the host can make recommendations based on their interests and explain the rules to any game there. If people want a game not already in our library, we will make every effort to find it and buy it at no additional cost.*  The whole time the host will be playing music and answering any questions that may arise.

Our second option is based on our popular board game speed dating nights where we give singles an opportunity to meet each other while playing great games. Don't worry, we're not trying to get your guests to go out with each other, but we found that the games and format we created for speed dating are just generally great ways for people to get to know each other through board games. We split everyone into tables and give each table a copy of the same game. We explain how it works, give them 20 minutes to play, then switch up where participants are sitting, sending everyone to a new a table with new people. Then we break out the next game, explain how that one works, then give them another 20 minutes. Over the course of the event, people play four different games, each with a different group of people. Every game we use is fun, easy to learn, quick to play and something you could play while, at the same time, having a conversation with someone else. We use a mix of classics and new games so hopefully there's something everyone recognizes and something new for everyone to discover.

Finally, for both parties we offer packages where your event can be catered by Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, and/or Down the Road brewery. So if you want ice cream and/or beer with your board game party, not only can we make that happen, but we will do it as part of a combo package that saves you money. We have done events for TripAdvisor, BookBub, Harvard University and more, and we feel confident that anyone who's worked with us would tell you we put on an amazing event.

*Because you know a sentence like that has to come with an asterisk. Total cost of games requested cannot exceed the cost of the event, which is still a crazy amount of board games. Games must be requested at least one week before the event. And, ya know, we're gonna do what we can, but within reason. If you want a game that is only sold in Russia and can only be obtained by flying there and smuggling it out of the country... well actually that sounds pretty cool, we might do that. But the idea is we'll make every reasonable effort to track the game down, checking not only Amazon but multiple other channels as well, but understand that at the end of the day, we just might not be able to get you that copy of that centuries-old board game you read an article about one time.
