We reach our goal and the first stretch goal of a Reaper Mini. Less than a day left to get in on the great deals! Spread the word!

We have an incredible lineup of guests that we are very excited to share with you. Not only do we have individual guests, but some really incredible gaming companies.  You will get to meet and get autographs from the following folks:

  • Steve Jackson
  • Keith Baker
  • Kevin Nunn
  • Fireside games
  • Grindhouse games
  • Pinche games
  • and many more

March 29th through 30th, 2014 Roll2Play is planning a two day expo event to bring an audience together that normally doesn’t play table top games with those that do in the Coppell area. The theme is ‘How Gamers Make a Difference’. There will be lots of open game play along with lots of game demonstrations with a sprinkle of events that will educate us all on tabletop gaming.

You will also find local businesses sharing information about what they do. There will be something for everyone. Please check out our updates on Kickstarter and on our website, www.roll2play.com/table for who is coming.

Game on everyone!
Game on everyone!

Kickstarter supporters will not only save money they will receive exclusive items and if stretch goals are meet, free games!

If we meet $13,000 in less two hours, then the Kickstarter supporters will get to pick out a Fireside Game!  Could this happen?  We will see.  :-D

Getting excited yet?  I know I am!

Don’t wait till the last minute. Get your passes now and get more stuff!

Over the years we have seen a resurgence of non-electronic gaming thanks to many contributing factors, including Geek and Sundry’s Table Top Gaming episodes with Wil Weaton and Felicia Day.  We have seen more commercials from toy and game companies bringing back family game nights.  Schools are bringing games into the classroom as part of their curriculum.  We see more gaming with the gamer enthusiasts.  Many conventions now include a gaming schedule as part of what they offer to participants.  Heck, we see more conventions that focus on gaming and more gaming clubs.  Just check out all the YouTube videos and podcasts that focus on the gaming industry.  But you know this already.

It’s time to do something awesome right here in Coppell. With all the support that we have already, even before we have started fund raising, we know that this will be very successful.We have reached out to people we know that have made incredible impacts to the gaming community and continue to do so.  From making award winning games, to bringing communities together to even changing the way the gaming industry to what it is now to inspiring the youth to do great things to (we could go on).These are positive impacts to all avenues of life that gaming has brought and I would like to share this with the local community.  I am still planning TABLE out with better details, but I have confirmation from well known game developers, local businesses and more.  You will see their videos as part of the updating on Kickstarter.  Plus the support of many volunteers, Coppell Chamber of Commerce, other convention organizers.  We honestly have no idea how big this will be.  We had planned for 250, but now with the guests and all the supporters that are on board, I know that number will be closer to 1000.

Even with volunteers, events like this need money and lots of planning to be successful.We have some awesome Kickstarter tiers that will help us fund this event.It will cover things like guest appearances, travel costs, advertising, site costs, office supplies and other things that events need.

As we meet our fund raising goals, I hope to add more surprises, more events and more SWAG to make this an event that everyone will remember!

Roll2Play is hosting this event. At Roll2Play, we are not just a retail store, we are building a community. With tables that are free to use and events scheduled for every night of the week, we are a place you can bring your friends and your family. We have a large gaming library that is available for use and we even allow you to rent them for $5 a week.  Our motto is getting people unplugged and reconnected through gaming.  For more about Roll2Play please visit our website.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risk is that we won’t meet our goal. No one loses money. We really appreciate the support you've given us. We learned a lot and had fun. I hope you did too. If we find that we still have a lot of interest and people asking us to continue, we may do just that without the Kickstarter crowd sourcing and step up our promoting in the community. See you at the store and game on!

FAQ

  • This is a great question and one I was waiting for to answer. To reach the non-gamers and the mainstream folks, it takes a lot more work, promoting and advertising. I will be placing ads in the local newspapers. There’s four of them in this area that I already work with regularly. I will be working with the Chamber of Commerce for Coppell, Carrollton, Southlake, Lewisville and Valley Ranch starting this week and the next. That means I will be going to meetings, business networking luncheons and making lots of phone calls. I have already started doing this before I launched the Kickstarter project. I am also going to work with other networks that I have been a part of for years. I am setting up events in the different social medias like Meet-Up and different forums.

    All of this takes time to do, thus the reason I signed up for 60 days of a project instead of something shorter.

    Once the Kickstarter has been funded, then even more promoting will be done. When the school year starts up, I plan to work with the nearby ISD’s to place ads, talk with the schools, PTA’s/PTO’s and anything else that pops up. I will also be working with different family focused magazines and hope to get interview articles with some of them. This is on top of reaching out to the gaming and convention circles I am familiar with. I still plan to advertise with the gaming groups like Board Game Geeks, Dallas Games Marathon and any others that I can get involved with. All of this will expand as I get more plugged in and as I get more support, of course. I’ve already been contacted by other groups that want to be part of this event. It’s starting to snowball, but It’s got to keep rolling to be successful. Word of mouth is also a huge part of this, as you can imagine.

  • Good question and I should have been clearer about this sponsor level. This is a great sponsor level for a group of friends to chip in and sponsor together. It does come with six passes, for each number of chairs around the table.It also comes with SWAG that will be unique from the rest of the SWAG.That actual items will be determined as things progress.

  • If you contribute, let's say, $50 at the $25 pledge level, send me message that you would like a second pass. After the KS project completes, I will send out messages for those that doubled or tripled their pledges to see if they would like additional passes.

  • You make a good point. I think a better question would have been what I have done to offer free events and what more will I do to offer free events. I have been bringing in new folks to the gaming/geeky community and plan to do more. I want to do more than just reach new people.

    I do a lot of free things for the community and will continue to do so. I am also working with the local stores to do bigger venues together. August 10th is National Nerd Night and is free at the store. National Table Top Gaming Day was free back in March this year.

    My store can only hold about 40 comfortably and 70 packed. This event I wanted to make much bigger for 1000 people. That means hotel costs. Plus I want to bring in guests. That also is a cost.
    Not many stores wanted to be equal partners in this, but have been supportive in my venture. They have contributed. I am sure that when/if I do this again, they will be more on board. Being the new kid on the block and bringing in an event that is new to the community, I am being watched by many to see if I even succeed. I know I will, but it's like I have to prove myself now to do lots more later.

    Think of this as bigger and in addition to the things I do for my community already.
    I hope this answers your question. I hope to meet you someday.

  • Well, it's expensive, super expensive. While trying to find pricing without an address, I am getting numbers from $70 and up. Please just message me and let's see if this is still worth it to you.

    Moving forward, Canadian shipping is at least $15. Again, this has to be a a supporter by supporter case. I had told the first few supporters to add $5, but this was before I realized how expensive it was. Oiy!

    Can't I just tap my heals in sparkly red shoes and send the stuff to you guys? I really wish I could!
