**UPDATE** Now with ANY pledge of $50 or higher you will also receive a FREE Hungry Hippo T-Shirt!!! That's a $20 value for free. (If you have already pledged a lower amount you can edit it to at least $50 and you will still qualify for the FREE shirt!)
Watch the video above to see the most simple truths to the project, but in summary here's where things stand at this time.
The whole point of this project is to bring together the city of Decatur and the surrounding communities over some board games, drinks, and food! It's my vision to have a place that is safe, fun, and that promotes both the local economy and the families that live within it. All of the funds raised for this projects will be used to go towards the building/remodeling, stocking, and improving the board game cafe in Decatur, Illinois to provide the most enjoyable and exciting environment possible.
I currently have a location that I am scouting out, the library of over 350 board games, and a menu of both coffee drinks and light food options while gaming including vegetarian and vegan friendly options!
My needs so far include funding for tables, chairs, shelves, additional games and game protective/sanitation materials, remodeling supplies, and kitchen needs in the cafe. Your donation of any amount will greatly help in getting this project started as soon as possible!
**This is an all-or-nothing fundraiser. If the goal is not met then you will not be charged for your pledge and the project will not come to be. You can change your donation at any time until the 30 days has expired in order to see the success of the board game cafe. Any donations above and beyond the goal will count towards the project and is encouraged in order to improve the cafe's atmosphere and food, game, and drink offerings.**
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk I have with this project is the start up costs and the cost of the monthly lease for the building and supplies for the cafe. I plan on overcoming this by re-purposing items and supporting local resale stores with some of my games, supplies, and furniture. Donations from the community, friends and family, and volunteers have and will make a tremendous impact on lowering the cost of operation for the cafe.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
