Our advice would be that 1.5hrs can often be best suited to after school parties where the amount of time for a party, plus party food is limited before getting them all picked up by their parents at an acceptable time, especially the younger ones (age 7, 8 and 9)
Turning age 12 and 13yo parties can also best suit our 1.5hr party option.
Turning age 8, 9, 10 and 11yo parties are generally great for either 1.5 or 2hrs.
Our max of 10 kids works well for the vast majority of groups with some Solo play (one person per screen) and some Multiplayer (2 per screen) For some games there is no downsides to multiplayer and the kids can often prefer it as they are playing directly with a friend, this type of play can often be the most fun!
However, if the birthday child and their friends wish to have the ultimate choice with less multiplayer and more solo play, and as close to a screen each as possible then simply reduce the number of invitees slightly. This can be the case for age 11, age 12 and age 13 parties more than any other age group.
We always try to prioritise the birthday child as much as possible but here's 2 other sensible reasons to consider reducing numbers from our maximum of 10 kids.
1, If your child is of a more quiet nature than their friends. By reducing numbers slightly the birthday child can feel more involved and less overwhelmed by their loud and sometimes demanding friends, resulting in a more enjoyable party for the birthday child.
2, ADHD or similar. If anyone attending could suffer a dislike to loud noise (caused by the enjoyment from the other kids) or may feel uncomfortable in small spaces. Or struggles to deal with compromise and can get upset if they feel they're not having all choices their way and immediate then yes we'd certainly advise reducing numbers. Plus please tell us upon enquiring so we can advise as needed from the start.
