A basic party consists of a team bringing the gear, either to the birthday person’s house if the land is big enough, or to a local park where we will meet and play. The choices and rates are as follows (if none of the options below are what you are looking for, feel free to contact me to work out what you have in mind):

  1. Type of Event (Pick one):
    • $50: Basic Battles. These parties revolve around games that use the weapons–capture the flag, hunger games, etc. They don’t have any storyline.  
    • $100: Simple Adventure. These parties involve battles with a simple storyline, with monsters and heroes.  
    • $150: Complex Plot. These parties feature a fully fleshed out adventure with riddles and twists, customized. Parties with complex plots must be a minimum of 2.5 hours long.
    • $200: Custom Plot. Do you want a party based in the world of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or other specific setting? This is the package that accommodates that. Parties with custom plots must be a minimum of 2.5 hours long.
  2. Hourly Rate: $5 per child per hour.
  3. Staffing Charges: $100 flat fee, to be paid in advance when your party is scheduled.
  4. (Optional) Birthday Item: $50 for an item chosen out of our Birthday Item Inventory which your child gets to keep.
  5. Travel Fee: Most of our teams are based out of the Palo Alto CA area. If you want a party further South than Mountain View or further North than San Mateo, we charge a travel fee to cover the expenses of gas and travel time. This fee is based on distance. To figure your travel cost, multiply the number of hours it takes to get there from Palo Alto by $50. One hour of travel (one way) is $50. Two hours of travel $100, Three hours of travel $150, etc.

Example Party Packages:

The Game World Sampler: $400. 2 hours of play for up to 20 kids. This is ideal for players new to the game who want a taste of what LARP is all about. We start out by teaching the kids how to play, and then move into a simple adventure story set in the game world of Roekron.

The Complex Adventure: $500. 2.5 hours of play for up to 20 kids. This event offers a more involved storyline ideal for players with a little bit of gaming experience. These adventures have complicated plots that often involve riddles, puzzles, and interesting choices. They are usually set in the game world of Roekron.

The Themed Adventure: $550. 2.5 hours of play for up to 20 kids. This event is completely customizable by you. If your child has an interest in a specific book series or fantasy world, we customize an adventure to fit your child’s interest.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy:

When we agree on a date and time for your party, you pay our staffing charge of $100 for that spot. This deposit is non-refundable, but if you need to reschedule it will remain in place and continue to count towards your party–you do not have to pay it again to reschedule.

We do not reschedule parties less than a week before the agreed upon date, except in case of rain. There are a number of safety concerns regarding LARPing in the rain, so if it is forecast to rain on the date of the party, we will work with you to reschedule to a date that works for you. We do not run parties in the rain.

Here’s what parents are saying:

“I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased we were with Paul’s Birthday party last weekend. You did an AMAZING job — the kids had such fun. Several of them said it was the best birthday party they had ever been to. Thanks for all your efforts. It was a huge success!”

“My son, William, had the time of his life at the birthday party you recently orchestrated for Nick.”

“Thanks again for a great day yesterday. All the kids had a blast!”

“I had so much fun being a monster with the kids. That was way too much fun!”

“All the kids in his class are still playing out the adventures they had together at Julians party. They reinact the scenes and the riddles and add onto the story as their parts.”

And from the kids:

“This is the best day I have ever had.” one of Julians girl friends from Waldorf school, age 10.

“This is the most fun I have ever had. This game is awesome.” Jason, age 15.
