Anna Macario, GAME Marketing Director explains “After years of boys having all the fun, girls are taking over the consoles and enjoying hours of raucous entertainment. Games that allow players to belt out their favourite hits, dance crazily at home, or rock out with a big guitar are massive hits – and this year the choice is bigger than ever.”

“Music and dance games are proving popular for hen nights because they provide hours of fun for relatively little cash, and can be played through the day and night. It’s no surprise to see girls in our stores on a Friday buying their hen night essentials, having already been to Ann Summers and on their way to the off licence.”
