Be the cool Mom with a GameTruck Party

GameTruck Arlington hosted a party for Dawn, The Frugal Mom, in mid-June 2014. Owners since 2011, David and Kim Richardson were able to coordinate a great event for Dawn and her guests. The GameCoach did a great job making sure all gamers were having fun and the parents had a chance to relax outside the Game Theater, making it the easiest (and coolest) party” Dawn had ever thrown.  Dawn came away from the event with great feedback on how easy and cool (both in a fun way and an air-conditioned way!) her GameTruck party was.

Dawn, the voice behind The Frugal Mom, is a mother of three in Fort Worth, TX. The Frugal Mom posts about ways to save with deals and coupons, as well as everything from recipes, travel stories to product reviews and giveaways.

Summer is here and the hot sun is upon us!  Last week, we invited our friends out for a Game Truck Party!  It was the talk of the school, and though I had heard about a game truck, it was nothing like seeing it in your front yard and then… getting inside!

Setting up the Game Truck Party was quick and easy:

  • First you call your local Game Truck franchise and choose your preferred date and time.  Make sure you know where you’ll have the Game Truck park – it takes up about 60 feet of space.  You can have the truck park anywhere – your home, your office or at the park!
  • Soon after initial set up, you will receive a confirmation email from the company, with information on sending branded invites and details.
  • Monitor the RSVP’s so you can plan accordingly.  Then, sit back and wait for the big day!  It really is that easy!

The Game Truck arrived at our house, and I was excited to be invited inside first… before any child could have a look.  The party attendant was quick to explain the games available, and answered any questions I had about ratings or experience level.  I was asked if I wanted to remove the mature games as playable options, and I did.  I appreciated the fact that I went inside first… none of the children even knew those mature games were an option and no one had to be the “bad guy” by removing them in front of children!

Party planning for kids can be super-overwhelming. Last year Little Man chose a party place for his birthday and it was a fiasco. Not only was it hard to make sure he gave the invites to all of his friends, once we got to the location we found out that there were two other parties at the same time. Oh my goodness, what a mad-house. Thankfully I now know that there is a better way to do things. You see, Little Man asked for an end-of-school party and at first I brushed him off as I thought it would be too much work, but then I learned about GameTruck, the ultimate video game party truck!

GameTruck is a literally a truck filled with video games and TV’s that actually comes to the location of your choice. Planning your GameTruck video game party is super-easy, using their Online Party Planner to help you with free invites that can be emailed to all of your guests and even keeps track of your RSVPS!

Giveaway-GameTruck Party

In late May, the GameTruck North Houston team hosted an end-of-school event for Alba, the voice of Independent Mami. Inspired by her nephew’s birthday party, Alba found the GameTruck a well air-conditioned party option. New owners Ivonne and Luis Robledo made sure the event was on time and ready to go. The GameCoach made sure every player got a turn and that the Game Theater stayed cool and comfortable. Seeing GameTruck as  great for both boys and girls, Alba came away from her GameTruck party with a positive experience.

Based in Houston, TX, Independent Mami covers everything from giveaways to fitness, to family-friendly movies. See Alba’s review of GameTruck, “Giveaway-GameTruckParrty” below, originally published on May 29, 2014 on

The end of the school year is here and summer break is just a few hours away.  What is the one thing your kids love to do the most when at home?  My kid is play games.  A couple of months ago my sister in law threw my nephew a birthday party and she had a game truck come for a couple of hours.  This is was great because it kept all the kids entertained.  There was plenty of room in the truck for all of them to play-with 4 HGTVs, different game systems, and so many games to choose from.

I was worried about the heat and worried about my kids being too big but I didn’t have to worry about it.  The GameCoaches were great.  They were on time.  They set up the tvs and games fast.  Everyone got a turn to play.  I liked having an air conditioned area space available that I don’t have to clean up afterwards.
