Mobile Gaming Experience in the Midlands.

Can you believe that video games have been around for almost 40 years now. We LOVE video games. If YOU love video games then we want to share our collection with you. This unique experience will give you a real insight into what gaming was really about.

You might be a veteran gamer, casual gamepad warrior or haven’t played video games since your childhood. Whichever you are, we have something for everyone. From the very early PONG Home Systems, to the very latest in VR technology, we have a full range of consoles that we can bring to you, or you can come over to our super cool centre if you prefer. Either way, we’re going to knock your gaming socks off.

Our History of Gaming package is great for stag and hen parties, getting your mates round for a gaming night or a birthday party. We also offer this unique experience for team building too. It will give you a real insight into where all your favourite video game characters evolved from. When you’ve got the consoles lined out in release date order you get a real flavour for how gaming has developed over the years. Kids don’t know they’re born these days – the Commodore Vic 20 only had 5K of RAM in which to load its highly addictive games, which kept us occupied for hours. With the modern consoles and PCs of today, they typically have 8GB RAM, which is over 1600 times more.

But are the games really any better? We will let you decide that.

Here’s just a handful of the consoles you can choose from – Atari 2600, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, NES, Amstrad, Sega Mega Drive, Amiga A1200, SNES, Atari Jaguar, SEGA Saturn, Playstation 1, 2, 3 & 4, Nintendo 64, SEGA Dreamcast, Gamecube, Xbox 360 & One, Nintendo Wii, Oculus Rift, Nintendo Switch, HTC Vive and Oculus Go.

So how does it all work? You’ve got a couple of choices here. You and your group are very welcome to come over to our centre if you like, and we’ll have your choice of gaming consoles set up and ready for you to get stuck in. There is plenty of parking, and we’ll keep the tea, coffee and cordial squash topped up free of charge while you’re with us. There’s a vending machine too if you want to buy any snacks or soft drinks. If you’re coming to us we can offer you up to 40 consoles to play. Yes, really.

Or we’ll come to your chosen location, and you can choose up to 10 consoles. We can set up in your holiday cottage. Or your home. Or your office. Wherever you fancy really. We’ll arrive in plenty of time to set all your chosen consoles up, so that they’re ready to go at the time you want them for. All we need is a decent sized room with a few power sockets, and we provide the rest.

If we’re coming to join you when the weather’s nice we can even set it up outside if you like? Now that would be one heck of a BBQ to remember. And our staff are always on hand to load the games, help with any questions or just amaze you with their gaming know how, trivia and general wizardry. There ain’t much our guys don’t know about gaming, whatever the era.

When you make your booking one of our team will discuss your personal requirements with you, and we can advise on which consoles and games would be an ideal match for your group. Get your game on!

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben

I used HDK for my sisters hen do. If you want hassle free please and organisation, use Hard Days Knight was effortless . I just picked where and when and what activities we wanted and it was all organised for us. Very very helpful and accommodating couldn’t do enough, was a pleasure. Answered any questions kept in touch.
