Facilitated Online Games

At ATE, we know all there is to know about playing games and having fun. We’ve been honing our skills for over 50 years on our summer camps, school residentials, training courses, and other events, and now we’ve taken our expertise online.

We run facilitated online games via Zoom that are genuinely fun. Whether you’re looking to run a games night for your friends or family, a virtual office Christmas party for your co-workers, or something else entirely, we can build a package for you. We recommend playing our games with between four and 48 players, but we can adapt to suit different sized groups, too.

We have a collection of activities which are ready to be played straight off the shelf, and we can vary the difficulty and tone according to your players. We can customise our games for you if they don’t quite hit the spot, or get in touch to discuss arranging an entirely bespoke online event.

ATE’s Christmas Selection Box

A collection of individual or team games
We have taken a selection of our finest games, given them a Christmassy twist, and tweaked them for online delivery. Our pick ‘n’ mix facilitated games sessions are the perfect way to celebrate Christmas with the friends, family, or co-workers you can’t meet in person this year. Fast paced, with something to suit all tastes.

We can work with you to create just the right mix of games for your group’s interests and tech-skills, or you can keep it simple and let our facilitator do the choosing. Play for an hour, ninety minutes, or two hours.
