Welcome to our Kickstarter Campaign!
We are so glad you came!
Who we are:
We are The Lost Colony, Roanoke's first and soon to be greatest Arcade Bar/ Tournament Venue/ Nerd Hub. Imagine showing off your skills to your friends while enjoying some fresh, cold local brew. Or playing Pac-Man while sipping on an appletini. Or watching the big video game tournament on Twitch. That's what we are about!
What we are:
We are a team of gaming enthusiasts, business professionals, creative writing majors, you name it, we got. Pushing labels aside however we are one thing and one thing only, dedicated. All of the owners are putting their own money and their reputation on the line to make this thing a reality.
Why we are doing this:
We are doing this because we want to do something big. There is a huge gaming community in Roanoke that is displaced. Right now they meet at local bars that are not able to handle huge crowds. Right now there are very few tournament venues that are able to draw in crowds due to size. Most importantly there is no place to enjoy the classic feel of old school arcades games. We want to have a place were you can play arcade games, watch a Twitch stream, but also play on the big screen.
Why should you help:
With your support we can make our dreams a reality. We want to make a place that is both exciting but nurturing for the gaming community in Roanoke. Its not if this will happen, its a matter of when this will happen! With your help we can bring this dream to Roanoke and we can make this fantasy a reality.
It's All About the Locals
What we want to have is a bar that gives as much back to the community as possible. Roanoke is a great place to live; Lets utilize that charm. We want to work with local micro brews, already established gaming clubs, local farms, you name it and it will be local!
Never Stop Gaming
Never stop gaming to us is not just a slogan but it is a commitment. To us we understand that most consider gaming to be just a side thing. But we disagree. We have seen the power of gaming first hand. We've have seen it bring people together to fight not only monsters, but also monsters that affect children of all ages (child's play). We've seen it bring family's together. We've seen children and adults of all ages share experiences through the realm of gaming. That's why we are going to have The Lost Colony be a family friendly place.
Made in Roanoke
We are building a place that supports local nerd culture. We want Cosplayers to show up, gamers, Warhammer players, card game enthusiasts and everyone! We want all nerds and non nerds to come by! Because we are nerds and we want to bring this place to Roanoke!
Risks and challenges
We are working hard behind the scene. Obviously there is much to do but with the help of your support we will be able to take this to the next level.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
