Hello, thanks for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter!
We love Cork. It's home, and even when we are away, it's where we always want to come back to.
We also love board games. We love the interaction and connectivity that comes from putting away our phones and engaging in an adventure with (or against!) our friends.
On our travels, we have noticed that board gaming is a hobby which more and more people are getting into. Board game cafés are popping up in cool cities across the world, and we think it is time that Cork got in on that action!
TabletopCork will not only be Cork's first dedicated board game café, it will be Ireland's first late night board game café. We can't imagine doing this any place else. No better spot!
We plan to use this Kickstarter to stock our library full off the latest must play games as well as all the tried and tested classics. If you are already into the hobby, or if you have only played the occasional Christmas board game, we will have something for you. For €4 you will be able to buy a Library Pass which will give you access (limited to 4 hours at peak times) to the library of games. We want to make tabletopCork an inviting and friendly space for families teaching strategy to the kids, for an alternative date night out, and for friends looking to do something outside the norm.
Come and play, try something new! We look forward to meeting you all.
Risks and challenges
Every project comes with some risks. Opening a café is a risky business (even with a dedicated group of gamers behind you!).
We are sure we have the necessary skills and experience to deal with such risks. Between us, we have accumulated 30+ years of hospitality experience in a range of venues, managing small café/bars and not so small nightclubs in that time.
While embarking on this project, we have sought advice through the UCC Blackstone LaunchPad, as well as the Cork City Local Enterprise Office. We also have a strong team of people behind us to help and guide tabletopCork to becoming all we are sure it can be!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
