6 game competition walk through

Depending on the amount of kids at your party would determine the amount of games we would suggest works best for you. Typically, through our experience, 2 hours is the ideal length of time to entertain the kids on that special day.

This is a walk through for 8 kids playing for approximately 2 hours. Explaining how the event is played through with a selection of our more popular games. These games can be swapped out for any others of your choice.

 

Game Rules

There are a total of 6 rounds. Each game is a round. The better you do at the game the more points you receive. The points are tallied up at the end of each round and added to the leader board. The player with the most points at the end wins. The final round is worth double points.

Here are the 6 games to be played stacked up on our peronalised interchangable chalk score board.

  1. Sonic The Hedgehog - MegaDrive
  2. Pac-Man - Arcade
  3. Street Fighter 2 Turbo - SNES
  4. FIFA 98 - PS1
  5. Super Mario Bros. - NES
  6. Mariokart 64 - N64

The results are recorded as you play. When finished the results are tallied up and the corrisponding points are added to the leader board. if scores are tied on the leader board the player coming up from a lower postion takes the higher spot.

Your place on the leader board at the start of each round determines what posistion you play for that round. This can be a huge advantage for those at the lower end of the table learning from others mistakes.
