      The armchair adventurer here in Honolulu is a great place. hope your project takes off - especially with the classic Dungeon! game on it's shelf? :)

      Where is the property you're hoping for at?

      Sorry to see that it's not picking up as quickly as you'd probably like. Care to share a few words about how you're reaching out locally and wider? Maybe we can help find some other avenues.

      I don't have a huge amount of time to play games these days (yey London commute), but still really want to see this get off the ground. There's a really successful board game cafe in Victoria, BC (my wife's home town) that is a good model: http://www.ibgcafe.com/ -- they cater to new boardgamers as well as more seasoned types, so I think you're on the right track.

      Oh, and if you do get off the ground - my 8-bit console choice would be the Vectrex :)

      Hi, we are aware of them and they have done a great job! We are not trying to create competition, we are trying to create a gaming cafe with a difference focusing on less hardcore games that involve massive tables and offering a friendly atmosphere with games for all. We also offer the retro console side which is one of the main differences between us!

      Hi, do you know about Dice Saloon? It is a successful board game cafe in Brighton that is already established. www.diceasloon.com You should go and meet some of the community that you want to introduce yourself to, its a very friendly place.

      I am concerned that you are not getting your message out there.. i am also concerned that Brightons biggest board game group with 1600+ members has not heard of this project.. if you don't know the group then.. hmmmmm do you really know your target audience.. i would love for this to succeed as i only live round the corner... so how can i help..
