About

I'm a game-store owner; too often I have customers come into my shop and ask something like this, "Do you have any events going on for (input their favorite game here)?" And too often I have to say either, 'not today' or 'we don't have enough interest in that game to make an event.'

I've tried social media, I have an event calendar, but what the gaming community needs is a better way to create, host, and join games that anyone can do at any time. Enter Tabletop Gamefinder App! Created by a gamer and store-owner to let both halves of the community assist each other in getting games up and running in their local game stores! 

Gamers get to create, host, and join games at their local game stores. Store owners can also create games and events, or just shout out the App to their customers and let them do all the work! Users can set up the app to notify them when their favorite games are created. Don't see a game you want to play, simply create a new game and host it yourself! 

App startup screen... It's only the beginning!

Users, after initial registration, will be taken to their home page. Not much will be there at first, after all you need a FLGS (favorite local game store) to call your home! Don't worry, if there are several stores in your area you can designate several as your secondary stores! Or, if you travel much, you'll get used to the map!

Click on a store to see more info about their events...

Whether or not you select one or more stores as your favorite, you're ready to join any game that has availability. Then, just show up at that time and get ready to play!

Home screen with all the goodies for you...

Your home screen will then show you all the info you need! Any event that you join or that your 'friends' send you a request for will show up here. If you input your favorite games into your profile section; then any game that's created at your favorite shops, for your listed games, will send you a notification that a new game is ready!

There are only four stretch goals. The first and most important is so that we can create the app for both apple and android. The other stretch goals give more free access to the full app or ensures that your FLGS will be included in the app when it goes live. 

Although the app will be eventually free to download and have a free version to use, we won't get that far without getting the app finished! Additionally, the paid version will be only $2 per month for non-store users, and only $5 per month for a store. Supporting us now not only allows us to finish the app, but also gets you at least double the amount of time for the full version of the app.

$18,000 -- Project funded: App created for iPhones

$25,000 -- First stretch goal: App created for Android 

$35,000 -- Second stretch goal: Backers get one extra year of full access free! (Lifetime users instead get to gift someone else one year full access for free!)

$50,000 -- Third stretch goal: Non-store backers get to make sure their FLGS (Favorite Local Game Store) will be available when the app goes live (subject to normal approval.) Store backers get to designate up to two users to have full access for as long as the store has full access!

$75,000 -- Fourth stretch goal: Backers get one additional year of full access free! (Lifetime users instead get to gift one additional person a year of full access for free!)

Risks and challenges

The App will initially be built for the iPhone, however the first stretch goal will be used to include Android phones. The first potential risk is that funding is achieved but the first stretch goal is not. If this is the case, the app would be completed only for the iPhone initially. However, after enough revenue is obtained, the Android version would be completed as quickly as possible.
A second challenge is to build the App with the gaming community's safety in mind. Therefore making sure that the App only allows games at verified gaming stores, to minimize the risk to users, is crucial. Game stores will always be responsible for activities within their stores, but it takes each gamer and each gaming community to help keep the community thriving and safe. It is up to everyone in a gaming community to share responsibility for the safety, cooperation, and enjoyment of all!
