Calling all Big Kids!

Our playground is a little small for all of us to fit in comfortably and more Big Kids are showing up every day! So, we are going to moving to a new location! We have spent the last year building not only a business, but a community. We have offered a great place to play games and also a place where many feel comfortable interacting socially with friends and new people alike!

We have already picked the spot and it will be ready for us soon!

We don’t want to just have a new bigger place to play. We want to make sure our place to play is the best! We want to provide the best gaming experience possible! That is where you all come in.

We are asking all current and future Big Kids to consider donating to our GoFundMe campaign. We wouldn’t just ask without telling you what your donations would make possible. Here are a few things we have in mind.

·         More tables and chairs! We want to be able to have enough play area to accommodate all the Big Kids who want to play

·         A play area specifically for RPGs. There are some things specifically needed by this type of Big Kid and we want to provide as many of them as possible.

·         A play area specifically for Miniatures Games. We need to build tables and make sure they have all the awesome terrain we can put on them!

·         Creating a featured table in the play area so that we can stream/record gameplay for platforms such as Twitch and YouTube. We know some of you like to show off your skills!

·         Expanding the in-store game library. We offer access to quite a few games for Big Kids to play and we want to offer more!

·         Expanding the games, we carry! We have been limited to the number of games we can support, but with the new space we want to make sure we offer as many products as we can.

·         We are always thinking of new ways for all of us to have fun and some of the funds from this campaign will be used as we come up with them.

We will also be listening to feedback from all Big Kids. We want to know what you want so we can do our best to provide as many of your suggested improvements you give us! All donations will be used for these types of improvements and we will post updates about them on our social media accounts as they happen.

We appreciate you taking the time to check out our campaign and we look forward to seeing you at the shop! If you have any questions, please let us know! You can reach us here on GoFundMe, or visit our website http://bigkidsatplay.com for links to our social media, email and phone number.
