Game of the Week – Jumbo 18′ Foosball Table

foosballplayers

“Foosball is a game that constantly test your skills against your opponents luck” – Whimsical Scribe from 1985

Isn’t it funny how a game with plastic molded players and a tiny coin sized ball can evoke such emotion? From elation to a cold somber demeanor, with just the flick of the wrist a game of Foosball becomes endless hours of fun that will take you on an emotional roller-coaster of highs and lows.

Invented in 1921 by soccer fanatic Harold Thornton, it was destined to become the popular interactive game that audiences of all ages love to play. In fact, at Amusement Masters we love playing it so much that we decided to take the standard 4 ½ ft table that Mr. Thornton constructed and magnify it up to 4 times the standard size! Our JUMBO Foosball table is 18 ft long and allows up to 16 players to compete against one another in a monumental Foosball game of epic proportions!

Bring this jumbo game to your event and watch the fun unfold as a team of 16 Foosball enthusiasts match-up and compete. Coordinate teams that work together passing the ball down the table all while keeping it from the opponents. Watch them get in striking distance and let her rip, while being careful not to spin!

This game is perfect for an event where you’re looking to build great group synergy, hours of excitement and lasting memories. So what are you waiting for? Call us today, book it for your next event and start having JUMBO fun!

We Played At Eventeract!

This Spring we were honored to be a major sponsor for the Eventeract conference in it’s inaugural year. Produced by the Georgia Chapter Meeting Planners Association (GaMPI), the conference was geared towards engaging the meeting and special events planner. The partnership was win-win; it gave Amusement Masters the opportunity to showcase to an audience of planners and it gave attendees two days of play that enhanced the learning experience.

On both conference days Amusement Masters maintained a booth on the expo floor. This gave us an ideal space for meeting with attendees and giving them a small taste of our game and amusement inventory. Our booth was Western inspired and featured the Wild West Quick Draw, our Western Shootout arcade game and our newest game, “Hit The Hero.” The decor was straight from the Wild West with western fencing and barrel decor items. We even brought in comfortable leather seating for guests looking to kick back and take a load-off as they made their way through the expo.

On the first evening of the conference we placed games throughout the conference’s signature fundraiser “The Gathering.” The event theme was “Back to the 80’s.” We loved this theme because it opened the door to bring in a variety of 1980’s Arcade Games and Pinball Machines, our Classic Strip Photo Booth and our new 2014 Instagram Interactive Booth. All in all, Amusement Masters helped keep the 80’s vibe alive that night.

World Water Day – Games CAN Make A Difference!

Did you know that the world’s second biggest killer of children is together, unclean water and poor sanitation?

For more than 20 years countries around the world have observed World Water Day on March 22. It’s scary, but the United Nations estimates that by 2030 parts of the planet could be tapped out of water suitable for consumption. Currently close to half of all people in developing countries suffer, at any given time, from a health problem caused by water and sanitation deficits.

What can we do, you ask? At Amusement Masters we believe that our passion for games CAN make a difference. We’re proud to announce that we’re an active participant in the Safe 2 SERV project – a SERV International initiative currently deploying up to 100 water filtration systems annually throughout the world. Through this initiative something as simple as $65 can provide water for a family of five for up to ten years!

In promoting the Safe 2 SERV project we’ve developed a way for communities, corporate teams and schools to adopt this initiative and have fun doing it. For less than the cost of booking a team building game or scavenger hunt with Amusement Masters you can book a Safe 2 SERV kit. For a nominal fee you can purchase water filtration buckets that your organization decorates with inspiring messages and that SERV International distributes to communities in need.

A recent successful use of our Safe 2 SERV kit was for the University of Florida who purchased a kits for their charity night of “Gators Give Back.” Fourteen bucket kits were beautifully decorated and returned for distribution around the world to provide clean drinking water for fourteen families…for the next ten years. We love that SERV International has made global change personal and we’re proud to be part of this movement!

For more details on how your group can make a difference by booking a Safe 2 SERV kit contact Amusement Masters’ Kelly Smink at KSmink@amusementmasters.com / www.AmusementMasters.com.

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2012!   I hope all of my fans had a fabulous holiday season and an awesome new year!   2011 was a great year, but I am totally ready now to move forward with some awesome new games.    First up – the Zippin’ Zone.    Yup, that’s right – Amusement Masters now has a mobile zipline that will officially debut in March.   But for now, here’s a quick teaser:

Zippin' Zone

It’s fully adjustable from 100’ to 200’ in distance – so the footprint can be adjusted to fit any event.   The Zippin Zone uses the same patented auto-belay system as our rock walls for the ultimate in safety.  Book it for your next event and see if you have what it takes to step off the platform 30’ in the air and experience the ultimate thrill!

Winter Wonderland

I am sure you know by now that Atlanta has pretty much been crippled by a winter storm.    The 6″ of snow we received probably would not have been as big of a deal if Mother Nature had not also decided to give us a nice layer of ice on top of it.     So, as I sit here trapped inside by the snow and ice, I thought, why not work on some Winter Wonderland themed events.   I know what you are thinking – forget winter, I am ready for the tropical theme.   But trust me, come August and the 90 degree temperatures, you will be longing to have an event with this awesome theme.

We start off with some simulators.   Test your skills on a the ski slopes with the Alpine Ski Racer.    Want something a little edgier?   Try snow boarding with our Alpine Surfer.   Have you ever dreamed of riding a snow mobile through the city…if so, the Arctic Thunders are perfect for you.   We even link 2 of them together so you can race head to head against someone else.      If space won’t let you have one of the simulators, try a video game console with a winter sports game.   Our 42″ high def screens will have you feeling like you are in the middle of the action!

But the true show piece of any winter themed event is definitely Playmotion.    We can work with you to customize the experience for your event so your guests can build snowmen, bounce snow flakes across the screen and play with ice scapes…all by simply letting their shadows interact with the images on the screen!   It’s the ultimate in creating a unique winter themed event for your next event or meeting.

Introducing 3D Gaming!

All new 3D Gaming

Want to play video games in 3D for the ultimate experience?  Well, now you can!  Using the latest technology, we have taken video game consoles to the next level for your special events.   42” 3D TVs  with 3D glasses and games will make this an immersive experience you are soon not to forget.    Several game options included.

Call, email or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter to learn more!

Game Girl’s Game of the Week: Be A Rock Star!!

I am one of those people that sings in my shower, belting out the latest tunes I hear on the radio.  I swear I sing better than some of those artist, but hey, that’s just me.   Some people agree that I “really” can sing,  I just haven’t been discovered yet.  There are tons more like me, I just know it.  Waiting to get their break, waiting to meet the right person who can hook them up with someone at Sony Records. But hey,  they’ll just wait til that time comes.  

That time could come at your next event where they could record their version of  Tardy for the Party or Achy Breaky Heart. Right there in front of their co-workers, family, friends, wedding guests,  they could be making the demo cd that could change their lives. I’ve done it myself, and it sounds so cool, like a real cd!  I just haven’t met the right person to give it to yet. You and your guests could be like me and make a personal cd, custom with your name, company name or custom logo.  I mean, you’re the artist, you tell us how you want it to look and sound!  This is just one of my game picks for the week. It’s such an experience that I have 2 bonus picks this week!  

You can’t make a cd without something visual!  How is someone going to know about this fabulous sounding person without a video.  Yeah that’s right,  you need a video to make your personal brand stand out!    Make your own video to compliment your new cd!  This is the time to channel your alter ego with costumes, props, and so much more.    This is just going to make this a stand out experience.  You can really rival some of the artists and what they do in videos all at your event!    This will make this one of their best, best, best events.  

Like I said,  I’m so excited that I have one more game pick for the week!  Ok, so you’ve got the cd, the video, now all you need is a knock out photo.  You know, the picture that is really really going to wow them.  The one where you can let your imagination run free to really show them all of your creativity!   We’ve got Green Screen Photos too!  We can super impose you on anything, just from the picture you take.   This will really leave a lasting impression. A total package impression!   Call me to give you more details on these cool ways to make your event the talk of the town, and who knows you or someone you know might get discovered!
