Are you looking for a unique and memorable birthday Party gift for a teenager? How about an epic mobile video game party? There are several classic games that younger players might enjoy. The classic card, board, and puzzle games from the 1980s are a great option. There are many classic arcade games as well.
It doesn’t matter if your teenager loves Mario, Sonic, or any other type of video game, they will love a Mega Man party! They will have fun running around their house in their own personal go-kart. The classic Space Invaders game is sure to be the most popular game at this party. It can be easily set up in any area in the home.
With a few simple additions, a whole new set of games can be added. The more sophisticated your invitations are, the more elaborate the games will be. Many party hosts offer to make the games easier by adding extra pieces to the games. This can include cutouts of various robots, villains, and other characters used in the game.
For the Mega Man party, good decorations, streamers, balloons, and banners can be purchased at any retailer or online. A great sound system and a projector would also be nice to add to the party. Many classic video game theme party supplies can easily be found and purchased on the internet.
For the main attraction of your video game party, create a tournament-type setting where the children are split into teams. Give prizes to the winners of each team. It can be a relay race to see who gets the most prize after the other team completes the circuit. You can easily find these types of relay races online. Some ideas include races through the park, around a playground, or round a loop in your yard.
Other great ideas for video game parties include Mario-themed snacks and pizzas. A mini-Mario-shaped cake would also be a nice treat. Don’t forget to supply the pizza cutters with the holes cut out for the Mario logo. Epic Touch, a video game company that creates the official Mario video games, has created a neat little video game pizza cutter that fits on the pizza table and can be used during the whole event.
For a fun video game party game, ask guests to bring three retro games they are best at playing. That way, each person gets to play the game they feel most comfortable with, and hopefully, learn something new as well. Other popular retro video game party game ideas include Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros., and Pac-Man.
The next day, hand out prizes and party favor to everyone. For extra added authenticity, hand out mini “hero” awards to the top three video game players. And don’t forget to put up some wall hangings and streamers to really spice up the room. You’ll have a classic epic video game party!
Since you probably won’t have a large supply of the foods mentioned above, bring in a few simple foods to add to the mix. First, try a local pizzeria for a tasty meal and a fun gift. Some pizzerias will also let you customize your toppings and pasta sauce, so it might be worth looking into. You could have a pizza place named after either the birthday boy or girl, or you could choose to go with a popular Pizza Hut pizza. The toppings are almost limitless, so you should have no problem coming up with something spectacular.
Epic Party Favors could be anything from stuffed bears to other funny things like key chains with a special code to win a game or something. For added decoration, you can use a giant Mario doll or create a mural or two to use as a centerpiece. Paint a screen with a projector and project the video onto it and the kids will have a blast watching their favorite Mario video. Another idea is to get a bunch of birthday balloons, place them around the area where everyone is gathering, and when everyone leaves you can draw a magic wand and put it on the ground. This is a great party favor and also acts as a mini-game. When the last person leaves the magic wand flies off and no one has picked it up, whoever did best in the group wins a prize.
Pizza is always a good choice, but something to tie in with the birthday girl’s favorite game character would be a good idea. They are known for their mascots, which are the flamingo and penguin. You can even get a cake made up with one of those pictures, which would be a nice touch.
There are a lot of other ideas you could add to this type of party, but these are the big three that you could use. Just make sure that you keep the theme in mind, and don’t turn the game into something that it isn’t supposed to be. The birthday boy will probably be having a blast at the party because you will have gone all out to make it special for them. They will also probably want to play video games, and be productive while they are at it!
