Trailer for Board Game Library

Donation protected
The board gaming hobby is a growing social pastime that brings people together, stimulates the mind, and creates communmity. 

My name is Lee Maile, and for the past 8 years I have been providing a unique service to the board gaming comunity - my team and I bring a collection of board games to conventions (now over 1700 titles ... and growing), clubs, and gatherings of board gamers around the Midwest. Most notably, we bring and facilitate the board game library at Gen Con Indy, but we also provide the logistics and the games for Gaming Hoopla in Wisconsin, Winter fnatasy in Ft. Wayne, Anime Central in Chicago, GrandCon in Grand Rapids, MI, Geek Fan Expo in Dearborn, MI, and Ancon in Hudson, OH - and still we are adding new events to our schedule.

Over the years, our gaming library as rapidly increased. In just 3 years we have more than tripled the number of unique titles and nearly quadrupled the number copies in the library. We will no longer be able bring all of the games to smaller conventions unless we solve this issue. The limiting factor is our trailer ... we're using over 90% of the cubic foot capacity at this time. We just cannot fit the entire library in the existing trailer, and it will be some time before we can gather the funds to upgrade - unless you help us today!

If we can raise $8,000 this year, we can purchase a new, larger trailer that will allow us to bring all of our current, even more games to the events and gamers we serve. 

As a special thanks for our donors, we will create a memorial plaque to travel and be displayed with the library, honoring those who have helped us keep gaming conventions supplied with great games, and no hassles!
