What people want to know about renting giant games?
If I order items for one morning then want to have them picked up the next day, does that constitute a 2 day rental?
Bonkers giant games are skill testing, interactive, team building, and fun! They are ideal for parties, promotional events, and workplace activities, and are especially effective at breaking the ice and getting people mixing. They are easy to play, provide a gathering point for your guests, and get the party started!
What kind of events are the games good for?
Bonkers giant games have been rented for weddings, birthday parties, corporate parties and events, civic celebrations and events, house parties, team building events, and arts and music festivals.
Can you recommend a game for me/my party?
We’re happy to assess your needs and make suggestions based on your description of your event and guests. It helps to know either your games budget or your overall entertainment budget. Feel free to call or email us and we’ll be happy to help.
What age groups are the games suitable for?
People of all ages enjoy our games. Yahtzee and Bananagrams do require basic math and spelling skills, and the Four-to-Win and Tumble Towers are quite large, so children under 7 may require some assistance. Trivia Plinko does require some knowledge of world events etc. and is more suitable for adults, as is the Truth or Dare card set for Plinko. But with a little assistance here and there, anyone can enjoy playing and even watching.
Do the games come with instructions?
Yes, each of our games comes with assembly instructions and game play rules, along with score sheets as applicable.
How big are the games?
Each of our games is custom built and varies in size. Please refer to our price sheet for details.
How much do the rentals cost?
Costs vary depending on the game and the time period of rental. Please note the following: we have a minimum order of $75, and there is a pick up fee of $25 on orders less than $200, unless you opt for delivery. Please refer to our price sheet for details.
How can I pay for my rental?
Bonkers accepts payment by credit card or electronic funds transfer. We do not accept cheques. Your payment is required in order to lock in the rental dates.
Must I pay the whole amount up front?
You must make a payment in order to secure the rental date. On orders under $300, full payment is required to secure your rental dates. On orders over $300 we accept a 50% deposit to lock in the dates with the balance due the day before your event.
Where do I pick up the games?
Games can be picked up at our storage unit at 111 Commercial Drive. There is a loading bay in the back off Pandora Street. When your rental is confirmed and a pickup time set, we will provide you with the contact information for your “Bonkers Day-Of Contact”. This is a staff member who will meet you at the loading bay to do the exchange.
For all pickups, we are beholden to the hours of our storage unit: Monday to Friday 9:30am to 6:00pm and Saturday and Sunday 9:30am to 5:00pm. The storage unit is closed on statutory holidays.
Do you deliver? Where do you deliver and what are the costs?
Delivery is available for a $55 surcharge (each way) in the city of Vancouver. Delivery outside of Vancouver will incur a higher cost, please request a quote.
What happens if I damage a game?
In the event of damages or lost pieces, you will be charged for the repair or replication of the pieces. You agree to pay for this repair in full within 7 days of the rental period.
How much will I be charged for missing or damaged pieces?
That depends on the piece and the degree of damage. Not all circumstances are covered below, but this will give you an idea:
