Growing up often means leaving behind some childhood games... or, simply adding drinking to them to make them more... 'adult'. 

If you're looking for a day or night out involving some pure unadulterated fun across the capital with some of those awesome childhood games then look no further. You already know with Ping Culture, we're all about the experience and so of course you'll find some pretty incredible things to do through the app, but for now, whether you're looking for some chilled board games over beersarcade infused boozers or smashing some balls (pardon!) onto the green as you sip down some Friday night cocktails, check out our absolute top picks for competitive socialising.
