Battlefield Hobbies will be a shop and venue created by gamers to deliver the gaming experience that we believe the community want and deserve. Located in Daventry and easily accessible the venue will provide a well stocked retail outlet for both on and offline sales, a custom designed gaming area and a space for tournament play.
It is our intention to hold regular events of both tournament and general play. We will be working with the various game manufacturers to support their new releases and get you the things you want, when you want them.
This project is something that has been in the back of our minds for a long time now and finally the opportunity to make it reality has arrived.
We welcome feedback on our ideas and suggestions for how to make this even better. Our aim is to be the best and to get there we need to listen to our customers.

£3,300 = CHANGE FROM: A phone friendly venue Have you ever found your phone struggling to connect to the internet or running out of power. We will make sure that there are wireless repeaters throughout the gaming spaces with free access and have a selection of chargers available so you can top up your battery strength. WHY: Whilst we had installed the wi-fi the bandwidth is very poor until we get upgraded to Superfast Broadband - which is currently not available but due soon apparently. CHANGE TO: So we have decided to change this by having an upgrade to the chairs we were going to have - to upholstered chairs with padding!!!!
£3,600 = Lockers Everyone has loads of models and stuff they want to use at a gaming centre but not everyone wants to lug it all to and for every time they go. Having a secure place to store your beloved stuff has got to be good. We would love to include lockers in our plans and this stretch goal will make that possible. Once this stretch goal is unlocked you will be able to add your own personal locker to your pledge, for £25 a year you can a personal locker
£3,900 = Games library. How cool is it to try before you buy. We would love to have a games library as well as a library of books. Once this stretch goal kicks in we will have a library of both gateway games as well as those new games you really want to try to see if they need a place in your collection.
£4,200 = Coffee Caffeine is good, quality coffee is even better. We will get a decent coffee machine for the kitchen for all of our guests.
