Fantasy Warplay also offers Birthday Party and Events Packages with various options and choices as well as scaled down version for all age groups. The parties can be anything from complex riddle quests to pitched battles. We have done everything from unicorn quests lead by farie princesses, to pirate ship battles, to Harry Potter, to ancient Greece. Anything is possible with the active imagination. You can also watch the TV episode of Business with Passion in which Fantasy Warplay was the feature and learn more about the vision and educational benifits of these events.

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.
A basic party consists of me or my staff bringing the gear, either to the birthday persons house if the land is big enough, or to a local park where we will meet and play. Depending on the complexity and timeframe of the event, I may need to meet in advance to discuss specifics and details. 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):
The rates that follow are for the Build Your Own Adventure Package listed above. To compute your total, just add up each piece of the party below.
- Type of Event (see below). Basic Battles: (games that use the weapons but no plot, just battles- capture the flag, etc.). $50
- Simple Adventure: (battles with a storyline, monsters and heros). $100
- Complex Plot: (a fully fleshed out adventure with riddles and twists, customized). $150 (minimum time frame of 2.5 hours for complex plots).
- Hourly Rate = $5 per child per hour.
- Staffing Charges: $100 (for more info, go to the Staff Page)
- Siblings and Parents can be monsters for free!
- Add on: Birthday Weapon (I make a weapon for your child to keep), add $25 for basic weapon, $50 for professional grade.
- Add on: Birthday Item (hand painted sheild or small treasure chest): add $100.
- (Travel Fee): I work out of Ukiah, CA. If you are not planning your party to be in the Ukiah area then there is usually a $50 travel fee to cover the expenses of gas and travel time. This fee is based on distance and will vary depending on just how far away you are. To figure you travel cost, just multiply the number of hours it takes me to get there by $50. One hour of travel (one way) is $50. Two hours of travel $100, Three hours of travel $150.
