Funbase – playground for grown ups!

Leave your age at the door!

A playground for grownups! Like hell yeah! Funbase is providing this for us. Leave your age at the door, take of your shoes and play like you’ve never played before. There is food, gaming, drinks and lots of happy people. It’s all possible here in Amsterdam.

Happy camper

I entered the gaming lair and everything was already going on. I got a little tour of what to expect. There is a room where you unlock your inner rocker with Rock Band on the PS3. A whole room is dedicated to this and it’s displayed on a beamer. In the corner you could play on the PS4, where there was a Rocket League tournament going on.
In the back there was a Nerf field with awesome guns. Two teams play against each other like it was Call of Duty Team Deathmatch. I was pretty impressed with the deep ball pit, I could actually drown in it.
Or I could play some games in the PC gaming room that was set up with four game PCs. They had all the games that you need to play with your team. Overwatch, League of Legends, Counter Strike, World of Warcraft and more.
If you don’t like physical activities, you could play board games or string beads and create Pokemon art. When you had enough of playing all day and want peace and quiet then you should stay at home! Just kidding, there is a Zen Room for some relaxation.

I’m hungry, where is my food.

The owners of Funbase are part Norwegian and you could also see that in their choice of food. You could eat knanelsnurrer, waffles and more Norwegian and Dutch sweets and food.

Your innerchild has been unlocked #achievement

Every month they have a monthly Funbase Part. Every friday there is a play date for you hard working people who want to let go of everyday work stress.

Well, one of the newest games available on the platform, The Hidden and Unknown goes for a whooping 1.949,09€! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The game was developed by ProX, a person or studio (we are not sure) famous for bringing you…eh…The Hidden and Unknown. That’s it. That is the only game they have ever released on Steam. We haven’t played the game (obviously), but there are some walkthroughs on YouTube about..

Chess Boxing: Strong Mind in A Strong Body

Chess is known to be one of the most challenging mental exercises. Boxing is known to be one of the most challenging physical ones. What happens when you combine them? That was the question that Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh had when, in 2003, and inspired by a comic by Enki Bilal, he announced the inauguration of “Chess boxing,” a sport that brings together chess and boxing. Uhmm… Sorry, what? The idea is simple: you play three minutes of chess, followed by a round of boxing, and then you repeat. You can win, mainly, by either knocking out your opponent or checkmate. A player needs to be able to switch fast from thinking chess moves to protecting their body and punching the opponent (and vice versa). After hosting an..

What Are Those Mods?

Probably you have heard of the word “modding” or “mods.” And probably you have seen games such as Garry’s Mod that allow you to interfere and mess around with game software. Modding is, pretty much, changing some software in order to make it function differently. And many video games have been modified by skillful programmers to perform different functions -and sometimes to the extent of being a totally new game and experience. In fact, someone could claim that the whole gaming industry began from modifications that some people did on pre-existing software. Today, we are going to have a look at three game mods that were so good and so popular they became their own, standalone games. Counter-Strike The reason most of us know video game mods. The..
