COC

“Your Turn” is not just about selling games, food, and drink. Our goal is to provide a communal space for people to gather, connect, and have fun. Board games appeal to players of all ages, from adults looking to relive the tabletop days of their youth to pre-teens and teens discovering something beyond the screen. Board games span many different genres and themes. They provide social, in-person connections for groups, both small and large.

"Your Turn" is committed to creating an inclusive environment where all gamers and non-gamers from all backgrounds and identities are welcome and feel safe. To develop and maintain this environment, “Your Turn” will prominently display a Code of Conduct for all to follow.

Risks and challenges

We've already signed a lease on the space, so we will see you in Zephyrhills, FL. The location is perfect, but the building was built in 1934, and we may encounter challenges with construction and permitting. To mitigate this risk, we are already consulting with contractors and the building department. We need to purchase equipment, start assembling staff, expand the game collection, and create our initial food/drink menus. There is a chance we may need to wait until after the opening to obtain a beer and wine license.
