Christmas parties

Are you looking for a Christmas event that’s a bit out of the ordinary, and extra-ordinarily fun? Or a teambuilding exercise that folk look forward to and talk about for days afterward? Even just an excuse to get everyone dressed up and looking their best?

In case you didn’t know, we’re Bristol’s go-to for games! As well as being a board game café and venue for hire, we write and run giant games for up to 60 people. These make ideal events for teambuilding and parties – we give you each a role and over the course of three acts we guide you through an interactive story of uneasy trust, sneaky trades and cursed-but-inevitable betrayals.

Think elevated office politics in a make-believe storyline.

You can expect 3 hours of fun, with everyone chasing their own goal, conspiring with the other players, trying to work out who can help them and who wants to see them fail. All of this is guided by one of our experienced gamesmasters, who have the chops to make sure that everyone gets involved, and even uncertain players understand what to do.

Think you know your colleagues? Nigel from accounts is a straight-up guy, right? Think again. We’ve run an awful lot of these events and when it comes to surprise betrayals, let us tell you – it’s always the quiet ones.

We can run events for teams from 30 to 60 people, either at a venue you’ve organised separately or we can also help find a suitable venue to run the event. We find “hidden” cocktail bars add to the atmosphere and fun our stories create.

Get in touch with our events team via events@chanceandcounters.com to enquire – we’re taking bookings now for Christmas!

“A fantastic night at the prohibition murder mystery hosted by chance and counters. The game was well explained. EVERYONE made an effort to dress up and it was soooo easy to get into character.
