About

What's Happening

We are raising funds to open a Tabletop Games Cafe in Wexford Town, Ireland.  A place to relax, play tabletop games and have refreshments.  Mountain Gremlin Games already exists as a web store and previously resided in the UK as a tabletop game shop.  

 The Web Store 

There are a number of empty commercial buildings in the town.  Many of  them require significant refurbishment including:flooring, walls ceilings as well as kitchen facilities.  The funds raised will be for the building refurbishment itself and on  kitchen equipment.  Any additional funds may be used to expand the games  library or to increase stock levels as necessary.  

Aims

The primary aim of opening the store is to create a welcome atmosphere where all are welcome.To maintain and grow an extensive games library.    To support tabletop games of all types and the players.  And to build upon the existing tabletop gaming community.  Also to create a social space where alcohol and other substances are not required to have fun. 

 "We aim to be a fun and inclusive for  everyone, whatever your ability, background or gender. If there is  anything that you need to make yourself more comfortable while in the  store. Please feel free to get in touch at any time " - Excerpt from our mission statement on the store web page.

How it works

One simply walks in or book a table in advance.  If you are playing a game there is a cover charge of €5 per person, which gives you a drink and access to our growing board games library.  Choose a game and play it.  If you are new to game a member of staff will be on hand to explain to you the rules and help with any questions you may have. 

If you play miniatures games we have space, terrain and dice for that too. Whether that be in deep space, the future or a medieval fantasy world we have you covered.  If you just want little space to paint miniatures with friends or just with a coffee that's fine too.

Into RPG's ? No problem - you can run that game from here.  We can help you with space dice, a GM screen and even access to books you may need. 

In the future we will be running gaming events like tournaments, campaigns, special game nights, one off scenarios, new game demo nights, miniature painting competitions and more.     

If you want to just have a drink or something to eat that's fine too - no cover charge.

Membership 

You will have noticed among the rewards are a number of memberships.  I thought I'd explain here how it will work.  Memberships will start one month after opening or whenever is convenient for you.

 As you know the standard price of a table at MGG is €5.00 per person and includes a drink.    

Membership is costed at €20 Monthly and gives 2 free sessions per week and grants 10% OFF items not already discounted.  If the sale is less than 10% or is at 10% gives 15%. 

Periodically there will be additions to the games library.  Members will be permitted to take part in an advisory poll to have their say in which games to add. 

Longer memberships are available for a better price and confer additional benefits like bringing along a friend for free or no cover charge.  

Summarised below

1 Month  €20 - 2 Free Sessions Weekly

 3 Months  €55 - 2 Free Sessions Weekly

6 Months €105 – 2 Free Sessions Weekly Bring a friend FREE once per month   

Annual €200 -  Bring a Friend FREE once per month + Unlimited Access to the games library (no cover charge) 

Risks and challenges

There are of course still risks associated with any business. As already stated the web store is already in existence. The Owner has experience in the tabletop gaming industry including front line retail, trade shows, product demonstration and as a commission miniature painter and scenery builder. He has a proven track record of customer satisfaction.
