About this project
Being a geek is chic! Pubs all over town provide a place to play fantasy football... Now geeks will have a place to gather, create a party, and go questing. Playing D&D and pushing miniatures is fun, if not "more fun", than fantasy football leagues; the best part is that our adventures last all year.
Dragons & Flagons will be home to these epic battles, adventures, feasts, and revelries. Oklahoma gamers can rejoice as Dragons & Flagons will provide you with the ultimate tabletop gaming experience. Game nights will never be the same again. No longer will you have to worry about space or end up splitting the party for a beer run and to pick up tacos.
We will be offering events from Friday night Magic to D&D league play. Or maybe you prefer restaurant wide Are you a Werewolf or Cards Against Humanity. The options we will provide are practically endless!
- Random tables selected hourly to roll for treasure
- Extensive games library
- Family friendly games from Monopoly and Life to Yahtzee
- Quarterly food specials
- Extensive beer selections including ciders, mead's, and seasonal
- Board games with a save feature (more info to come)
- Fully stocked gaming store for all your needs (if we don't have it, we will get it)
- Weekly live Trivia and Epic Quests
Everyone is excited! The buzz on the street and social media is very positive. Check out some of these comments:
“I'm incredibly excited for the prospect of having a gaming tavern like this in OKC.”
“I think this is an awesome thing you're doing and I really hope it all works out for yall. In my experience we don't quite have much to set OKC apart and I think this is the sort of thing to do so!”
“Look forward to seeing the place up and running and spending some time there.”
“I am greatly looking forward to this project becoming a reality!”
“I love your idea!”
“Perfect spot for gamers and nerds alike!”
“Oh my various gods! It does exist”

We have monies marked for ordering our first supplies of foodstuffs for our Backer party, soft launch, grand opening and beyond.
We also have monies marked for the game shop as well. We pushed for more space and want to fill as much of it as we can with the inventory you want!
30 days to go. With your support, not only will our dreams become reality, but with the success of this Kickstarter, we will be able to create an inviting and exciting experience for you, the gaming community.
Here is a tentative layout:
Our games library is just one of the many features that we will have at our establishment. Typically a pass to the library is $5 for a full day pass. This will allow you to play games that you don’t own but are curious about. Guild Members will have passes that they can use to waive the daily fee. Playing games from the library is simply an added feature. It is not a requirement. If you have Settlers of Catan and want to bring it in, you are more than welcome to supply your own entertainment here.
We will feature private game rooms at our venue. While we will have multiple tables in Dragons and Flagons that are free for all / first come first serve, these private rooms can be reserved for a small price of $25 (less if you are a member). For this fee the room is yours until you leave, whether it is a 3 hour gather or a 10 hour quest. These rooms offer full service. A person on our wait staff will monitor the booths to make sure your drinks are full and to bring you any grub you order. They will be equipped with a call button that you simply press to send our peasants running to determine what it is you need.
While we plan on having various televisions around the establishment we want to up the ante on our video capabilities. At this level we will install an High Def projector and screen and an upgraded sound system in the bar. This will allow us to stream content such from Twitch feeds to League of Legends in over 100" of pure glory. That’s right, sports bars can keep their silly sports games, we know where the action is really at!
2nd Stretch Goal: $60k
Ever been to a place where there was a wait? Maybe it was in line at a restaurant, or possibly at a tabletop tournament, just sitting around twiddling your thumbs and watching the time slip by. NO LONGER! At this stretch goal we will install a 6 player head to head console setup at the entrance to the store, completely free to play. We will furnish this setup with gaming chairs each with it's own HD television and an assortment of fighting games. Go one on one with the computer or head to head with other players while you wait.
3rd Stretch Goal: $70k
We will host a pre-launch party for ALL our Backers before officially opening the doors. Food and drinks will be provided at no cost during this event. Let us thank you for being part of our dream and helping us create and bring it into reality!
Risks and challenges
Dragons and Flagons is a new concept to Oklahoma City. This kind of store/restaurant has never been attempted. The challenge that we would face is ensuring our doors stay open after launching. With having a built in store generating revenue we are ensuring our success. We plan on hiring experienced and talented kitchen staff to execute a diverse menu full of awesome. Layla has 10 years operations management and human resource experience which will allow us to ensure we are hiring dependable and hardworking staff that have a love and appreciation for gaming. Johnnie has 25 years of experience in the gaming industry and was once a staff member of the White Wolf Gaming Company. Anthony has 15 years of experience in business structure, design, and management which will allow us to execute our launch seamlessly. This party of adventurers have the combined strength to overcome the challenges of getting permits, applying for licenses, passing inspections, and driving back the vile bridge troll to whatever smelly cave it crawled out of!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
