QUESTION: How do I do this? How do I look into booking a party?
ANSWER: Use the “Check Availability/Book Now” page and send in your date & time and we’ll respond letting you know if it is available. Just confirm and that’s it!

QUESTION: How do I know the trailer can come to my house?
ANSWER: Our truck and trailer package is 52 feet long and needs to be placed on an area of little or no incline or decline. Otherwise, you can make arrangements to divert us to a nearby park, community pool, clubhouse, church or parking lot! Please call us if you have any questions regarding trailer placement and location. Safety is a top requirement so we will not park anywhere that puts you, your guests, our coaches, or equipment at risk.

QUESTION: Should I save space for the Trailer?
ANSWER: Yes! Talk to your neighbors, use cars or cones etc…. to save us enough space for the trailer to fit in front of your home.

QUESTION: Will the kids know what to do?
ANSWER: That’s why we have a Game Coach! They help the kids along, inspire and instruct. We make sure it’s the party of the year!

QUESTION: What does ESRB mean?
ANSWER: The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) is the non-profit, self-regulatory body that assigns ratings for video games and apps so parents can make informed choices. The ESRB rating system encompasses guidance about age-appropriateness, content, and interactive elements.

QUESTION: Should I be concerned about the types of games for kids?
ANSWER: Curbside Games makes all ESRB rated “E” Everyone games available by default at every party. The Client/Host of the party is responsible for authorizing any “T” Teen and/or “M” Mature games to be allowed at the party as well as notifying any concerned parents of their guests. It is also recommended that all clients email us with their game requests as soon as possible if it is a game that is NOT listed on our Games Page.

QUESTION: What about bad weather?
ANSWER: We come rain, shine, frigid or sweltering — we are climate controlled! As long as it is safe for us to drive. In case of very bad weather, we will contact you to reschedule to a mutually agreeable date.

QUESTION: What time should I make the party?
ANSWER: You can schedule your party a half-hour or hour prior to our arrival if you want time for food/cake before we arrive. Otherwise, you can schedule the party to end a half-hour or hour after we’re done and eat later….the choice is up to you! If we arrive after your guests do, you will get to see their surprise when our mobile game theater pulls in!

QUESTION: What if too many people show up to the party? Is there an extra charge?
ANSWER: Bring them on! Unlike most party venues we do not up charge you based on headcount. However, keep in mind that up to 16 players can play simultaneously with our game trailer while an additional number (depending on size) can fit on the stadium seating. We can rotate players and keep them all having fun!

QUESTION: Do I request certain games?
ANSWER: We always bring the full game library to every event and your Game Coach will listen to and make suggestions to make your event successful. We try to stay with multiplayer games so that all the kids can be involved and playing instead of watching. You can view our list of games and their ratings on this page.

QUESTION: Do I tip the Game Coach?
ANSWER: The Game Coach is there to make sure that your group is making the most of our high-tech fun. He/she tutors, inspires and entertains. Tipping for service is a great idea, but not required.

QUESTION: Do I have to pay for the party in advance?
ANSWER: Our reservations go quickly. In order to hold your booking, you must pay on line or arrange to drop your payment with us. Otherwise, your date and time is still open for booking by others.

QUESTION: How do the invitations work?
ANSWER: As soon as you confirm your party on line, we mail your invitations to you at the address specified when booking.

QUESTION: What time will you be arriving?
ANSWER: The Game Coach arrives in plenty of time to be setup and start your party at the designated start time. Normally between 10-20 minutes ahead of time.

QUESTION: Where can I view your official policies?
ANSWER: You can view them here.

QUESTION: How can my organization raise funds through Curbside Games?
ANSWER: If a school, PTA, church or non-profit hands out our flyer and a party is booked as a result, we will make a $20 cash donation to that organization for each party booked We will print the half-page, full color flyers and drop them off; all you have do is distribute them! No cost, no risk, no selling cookie dough!
