Make your next party a board game party. A host will come to your event with 60+ board games ranging from classics like Connect 4 to party games like Cards Against Humanity to strategy games like Settlers of Catan. If guests are looking to try something new, there will also be a wide array of newer games that we've found people absolutely love, and the host will be able to make recommendations and explain the rules to any option there. The whole time, the host will be playing great music and answering any questions that arise.
Looking for a game we don't have? Let us know and we'll do everything we can to find it, buy it, and bring it to the event at no additional cost.

What to Expect
Prior to the event, the host will send you a list of the standard collection of 60+ games we bring to every event. This list has been carefully curated to include games that accommodate all types of players, whether they are looking for something fun and goofy, a classic they grew up with, or an option full of strategy and creative thinking, while also including options for every number of players possible. But if there's any game you or your attendees want that we don't have, we will do everything we can to find the game and bring it with us at no additional cost. And yes, we bring multiple copies of the more popular games in case two groups want to play it at the same time.
A host will arrive one hour before the event to set up the games and sound system. We like to do this part with a flourish and set up an impressive-looking pyramid of games for people to choose from. We provide all the games as well as a table and whatever supplies games may need (like paper and pens for Pictionary, for example).
Once the event starts, guests may come over and choose games they want to play. Often people will end up splitting into groups of 4-8 and playing at separate tables with their friends/coworkers. The host will play music, help players get the games they want, make recommendations to anyone looking for something new, explain rules and answer any questions that may arise about gameplay.
My name is Jonathan Krieger. I've been running live events for business, fundraisers, birthday parties and pretty much any other event you can think of for the last six years. I've hosted trivia games, mobile escape rooms, murder mystery shows, scavenger hunts and more. I've dressed up like crazy characters, done balloon twisting and DJed for crowds of several hundred. I've put together events, served food and even manned the door. I have experience with pretty much every component of running a great event, and so now I'm excited to be launching my own venture: BoardGame Empire. The company is only a year old, but in the time I've run it, I've had a ton of fun. It feels amazing introducing people to a new game, explaining the rules, then walking away and hearing them laughing and having a great time for the next couple of hours as they play. I love board games and I love entertaining large crowds, and running this business has been a wonderful opportunity to share both of those with other people.
Additional Booking Notes
The only thing we ask of the client is that you provide tables and chairs for the players to sit at and use to play games. We provide the games, the table that will be used for setting up the games, the sound system and any additional materials a game may call for (like paper and pen for Pictionary, for example).
