Frequently asked questions
What's included with a Playbox arcade party rental?
Playbox has brand new mobile tripods and 50'' HDTVs and a collection of thousands of games and hundreds of game consoles. Each unit includes: 1 HDTV, 1 console and 4 controllers up to 10 seperate units. We work with you to bring a nice variety of multiplayer gaming options that will work well with your event. Including every major console ever made, ie: Atari, Nintendo (NES), Super Nintendo (SNES), Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis, Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and more.
What space requirements are there?
We only require a small, flat 4x4' area for each arcade gaming setup. We require power and if you have your own displays we are more than happy to use them as well!
Can you fit my event theme?
Yes! We fit the theme and vibe with all the event entertainment we provide (and also are flexible during the event to make sure everything is going smoothly). We have hundreds of games and experiences on hand at every event we do so there is no problem creating a vibe and choosing games that fit with your goals :)
How many people can play during a retro game party?
A typical event will buy 2 to 4 retro game stations. Each station can have up to 4 players at once and many people typically gather around to watch the games. So that means up to 16 players at once, rotating frequently with enough room for dozens of spectators. We provide entertainment for company parties and corporate events that range from a few dozen people to thousands with no problems :). If your event has over one hundred people we have other services that will help round out your event and venue.
