How reliable are Gaming Squad?
What games can we play?
We specialise in social gaming. Gaming where all 16 players are fully involved from start to finish. We have the best and latest multi-player games available on the latest games consoles and 4K TV’s.
The age old question, do we offer Fortnite?
We don’t at the moment because Fortnite only allows one player per TV screen. Which means at most 4 players playing and the rest watching. Our approach is having everyone playing which has made for fantastic parties that everyone enjoys. You only have to read our customer feedback to see that.
Under age gaming
We don’t allow children to play games rated at older than they are unless we get signed consent from their parents.
Do Gaming Squad staff look after the party?
We sure do. For the entirety. All our staff are DBS checked and professionally trained and all thoroughly nice, decent people just like their boss.
How many people can you fit on the gaming van?
We can accommodate up to 16 children and 12 adults making us the largest gaming van in the UK!
Can food and drink be consumed on the van?
No food and drink allowed on the van.
Is the gaming van air conditioned?
The gaming van has both air conditioning and heating on-board meaning we can provide comfortable playing conditions all year around
How far will you travel?
We are based in Barry, South Wales. Please see our coverage map for the areas we cover. If you are outside this area please contact us to see what we can do for you.
Do you drive around while the games are being played?
Are you kidding? Our insurers would have kittens! Our parties are always in parked vans. We bring the van to wherever you need us to be.
Will the weather affect my party?
Nope. We party in all weathers ?
What do we need from you?
Just space to park the van and access to an electric point.
Will your gaming van double my energy bills?
No our electrical equipment is the latest A+ low energy use equipment. We calculated if we used everything on board for the entirety of a 90 minute party it would cost just £2 in electric! In reality it is much cheaper because that is based on the 2 air con units being on the whole time. They have never been on the whole time.
