Campaign Description

The Gaming Kingdom Cafe is a modern styled cafe where people can come play a huge library of table top games for as long as they wish for a flat fee.

Never heard of a board game cafe?

It's pretty straight forward, its very similar to a normal cafe, with coffee and different foods served, but the only twist is that you pay a flat admission to choose from a massive library of board games that you can play while you enjoy your coffee and cinnamon bun. If you aren't in the mood to play any games, you can still come in or take out the food and drinks. 

Why a board game cafe?

First off, have you ever been to one? They are AMAZING! We personally have quite a few board games but with how much they cost you can only afford so many. Thats the best part about a board game cafe, you have access to a huge library of games to play without the cost, especially when you buy a game, you later find out later you don't like. We have personally been to several board game cafes across many cities, and it was always disappointing that Medicine Hat didn't have one. With my wife, Tiffani, who loves coffee and I, Jeremy, who loves board games, we decided to bring the fun to the Hat. Something else we will start are tournaments with prizes from free admissions, to board games, and we plan to team up with other local businesses to bring more variety of prizes. When there is enough interest in the tournaments we'll create a ranked ladder where when people will earn points by showing up to tournaments aswell as how well they do. Then at the end of a time period (approx. 3 months) the person with the most points will we awarded a grand prize. 

How covid is affecting us

The main thing that covid is impacting us is building material. Some materials have doubled in price making us have to change some of our decisions on building materials, types of light fixtures, and the equipment we're purchasing. We have also had to limit our seating from 90 to 60 to follow social distancing rules. It has also made inspection and regulations more strict. 

What has been accomplished already?

At the moment of the start of this campaign, we have reached an agreement on a lease, received financal approval, acquired our coffee, food, board game, and drink suppliers. The drawing are complete, permits are approved, and contractors have been lined up. Our business has been fully registered with the city.

Where your Fabulous dollars will go

More games of course! With these funds we will put them towards expanding our game sections to reach even greater heights! We're aiming for the moon. We will use it towards upgrading the quality of counters, tables and chairs. If we reach $15,000 we will have couch seating so that not only do you get to destroy your friends in a "non-competitive" game, while drinking your cup of sweet, sweet vistory, but also get to enjoy your domination on the comfort of a couch. Reaching $17,000, a milkshake machine will be add, then only fresh milky way galaxy shakes of a variety of flavours shall be mixed. 

Of course you want your rewards!

Once the campaign has ended, we will acquire mailing addresses and the your rewards will be mailed to you approxately 2-4 weeks after.
