* Suggested age range is 20s, 30s & 40s ** Our friendly host will welcome everyone and then you’ll be grouped off into separate tables where you’ll get to meet, chat with and play fun social games with other singles in small groups of about 4 or 5 people. The games are super easy, really fun and designed to help you get to know everyone! Then, similar to traditional speed dating, you’ll rotate from table to table getting a chance to meet all the other singles in attendance. You’ll be handed a “match sheet” and at the end of the event you’ll be able to indicate people you’d like to talk to again in the future. If they also choose you, our host will send you each other’s contact information within about 24 hours after the event and you can feel free to set up a date with them. Let’s face it, we’re all tired of swiping over and over again on people who may or may not look like or be like the person they’re portraying on the apps. A “Dating Games” Speed Dating event is a much better way to meet someone because you actually get to meet singles in person and really get to know them. QUICK NOTE – PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME. WE START THE EVENT PROMPTLY AT 8:00 PM. This is entirely new and revolutionary type of speed dating event! We love the idea of traditional speed dating but sometimes it’s hard to come up with things to talk about. That’s why at a “Dating Games” Speed Dating event you’ll have fun, easy games to play to get to know everyone instead of dealing with the usual dating “job interview” type questions. We find that it’s a much better way to get to know someone! WIN PRIZES!!!

You’ll enjoy an evening of meeting new people, fun social interactions and games… No skill necessary, just a bit of luck! Our friendly host will be orchestrating the event and making introductions among the group. You’ll participate in several games during the evening while getting a chance to interact with all members of the opposite sex. Win a game, get a raffle ticket for chances to win prizes! The amount of early bird priced tickets released is indicative of the event capacity!

“What a great time! I got to meet a lot of people and it was seriously fun. The host was so sweet and made everyone feel comfortable and welcome.” – Mara, NYC

WHY IT WORKS! Through the years we’ve organized many speed dating events. We had a host that would sometimes invite the guests to stay around if they wanted to after the event to play some games. She would bring some fun interactive games with her. We noticed something fascinating start to happen! More people would make connections at the games after the event than at the actual speed dating! That led us to creating this event. It’s the perfect way to meet people in this busy city!

WHAT GAMES WILL WE BE PLAYING? They are simple but extremely fun games that don’t require much skill… they are mostly fun games to get the crowd mingling and having a good time. The fun games are set up to break the ice, help you gauge compatibility and make quality connections. Some of the games are similar to the most popular party games, others are like casino games that involve rolling dice and some are a little bit different, but we assure you… they are really, really fun and you don’t need to know how to play anything in particular (ie. we won’t be playing blackjack or poker or anything like that). An example game we sometimes like to play is “Dating Feud” which is similar to the popular prime time TV show we all know. In this game you and your dates will be asked fun relationship style questions as these as these are a few examples of the games.
