Killer Queen is the world's only 10-player arcade strategy game and we want to bring the first one to Utah to live at Quarters Arcade Bar in Downtown Salt Lake City! Two teams, each led by a powerful Queen, face off to be the first to bring the giant snail god home, fill their hive with nectar, or execute a triple assassination of the enemy Queen.The game can be learned in as little as 60 seconds, but is still being mastered by world-class competitors. It is fun, social, competitive and will be a centerpiece of our arcade bar. This multiplayer strategy game was designed for bars - it even has a cup holder for each player! We have played Killer Queen in other states and know the Utah gaming community needs to play this game! It's seriously fun and totally addicting. 

A bit about us... After three long years of trying to do the thing Quarters Arcade Bar is currently under construction in our home sweet home, the former Club Manhattan space on 400 South and Main Street. We aim to provide a casual, comfortable gaming and social environment that supplies high end cocktails and craft beer as well as familiar and affordable liquor and brews. We will provide entertainment through vintage and modern games, special events, and local meet ups. We strive to be a place to meet new friends through shared interests while enjoying some of the best beers and booze Salt Lake City has to offer (and served by the most wonderful bar staff around). ​We have already been awarded a full club liquor license from the state of Utah so we are full steam ahead and plan to open around the end of February.  

We will be using the funds from this Kickstarter to buy Killer Queen and if we exceed our goal, any additional funds will go directly to adding to our collection of games. We will have an awesome line up of arcade cabinets, pinball machines, console games and board games no matter what, but we have a big space and there is always room for more! 

We are working with local artists and shops to make high quality, cool rewards for helping us reach our goal. As an added bonus, anyone who contributes at any reward level ($10+) will be allowed early access to Quarters Arcade Bar on opening day! We have other cool rewards like learning a bit about cocktails with our bar staff as well as having your name permanently emblazed directly on our Killer Queen game for its whole life. 

We are so excited to be a part of the Salt Lake City bar community and gaming community. We will work as hard possible to be the best bar and the best arcade we can be. We appreciate your help and cannot wait to serve you a delicious beverage on opening day!

Risks and challenges

We have overcome many obstacles in the process of opening Quarters such as finding funding, securing a space, locking down an awesome contractor, GETTING A LIQUOR LICENSE IN UTAH, and signing all the papers and sending all the emails. We have a few hurdles to overcome, but with our amazing support system and future friends (you!), we know we can get through it all and get our doors open this winter!
