Spring break is THE time to host a video game party. Awesome weather, a week off from school, and all of your friends are home, too! What better time to have friends over for an epic party filled with games, good times, and fun?!
Pick Your Games
Of course, you probably already have some games that you like to play with your friends. Maybe you were lucky enough to score the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! What characters have you been playing? We love Kirby and Piranha Plant!
Fighting games work well at gaming parties because matches only take a few minutes. You can switch quickly among friends, and those who aren’t playing won’t have to wait long in case of a rematch. First person shooters, anyone? If you have more than one console, you can form massive teams! Sports games always have multiplayer, and they’re a true test of your skills. But sometimes, the games can take way too long. You can try switching players each quarter if your friends don’t want to wait!
Buy Your Food
Plan ahead! You’re going to need plenty of tasty snacks and drinks to ensure that your party goes on all night long. It’s important to buy your snacks before the party begins to avoid interruptions. Admit it – that 15 minute trip to the store always takes longer than you plan when your buds tag along. You can ask your friends to bring their favorite gaming fuel. That way, everyone is a contribution.
The kinds of snacks you buy are important. Buy things that are easy to eat with one hand or that can be eaten between matches or cutscenes. Keep in mind, some one-handed snacks can be quite messy! Nothing is worse than Cheetos dust all over your controllers. If you’re into cooking, check out these fun recipes that are great for gamers.
Also, stock up on plates, cups, and napkins. If you have the room, it might be a good idea to make a separate space for the snacks. A dedicated food area will be easier to clean up and keep the gaming zone clean, too.
Prepare Your Accessories
This should be a no-brainer. Make sure that all of your controllers are charged before your friends come over. Have extra controllers just in case. In case you missed it, check out our guide to what gaming accessories you might be missing out on!
You can always encourage your friends to bring their favorite accessories and controllers as well. That way, your friends can’t accuse you of having broken controllers when they lose! Who likes a poor loser anyways?

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning the festivities!
While adults and kids alike are looking forward to backyard barbeques, fireworks, and spending time by the pool, the host of the party is usually met with one question – how do you throw the best Independence Day party?
Never fear – here at Gametruck Charlotte, we’ve made a quick guide to help you host a Fourth of July party the neighbors will be talking about for the rest of the year!
You say party; we say FOOD!
Food is the guest of honor at almost any party, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the Fourth of July doesn’t require any fancy meals. Your guests will be more than happy with the traditional barbeque featuring hot-dogs and burgers. If you’re adventurous and want to add a little twist to the favorites, check this recipe out for a fun take on the classic hot-dog or explore vegetarian and vegan alternatives!
Another way to make sure guests don’t run out of yummy treats during the party is to ask guests to bring snack foods and desserts. It’s a great way to strike up a friendship with a neighbor you just haven’t gotten the chance to talk to (while saving a bit of money as well).
What’s a party without some decorations?
The decorations are what sets the tone of the party, and they’re the first thing guests will notice when they arrive. So it’s important to stay on theme, but also keep things simple. Visit your local dollar store for affordable decorations – anything works as long as it’s red, white, blue, or sparkly!
And here’s a pro tip: white plastic cutlery and paper plates and napkins tend to cost less than blue or red ones. Your wallet will thank you, I promise.
Now the million dollar question: how do you keep everyone entertained until the fireworks start?
It’s not as hard as it looks! Set aside an area in the yard for some outdoor sports and games, like volleyball, frisbee, and bean bag tossing. If you want to keep guests of all ages happy, book GameTruck Charlotte and guarantee that everyone has so much fun, they won’t even notice the time passing!
No matter what you do, remember to stay safe by providing sunscreen and insect repellent, and by keeping an eye on adults that are drinking. The important thing is that everyone’s going to have a blast just by spending time together.

After a semester filled with late nights, early morning classes, nerve-racking quizzes and stressful finals, you’ve made it to the end of the semester.

One great way to acknowledge your well-deserved holiday break is to throw a party for your classmates to unwind and high-five themselves.
