Middlebury Community Game Space

Rewards have been added!  If you'd like to donate and do not see a reward level for your dontion, contact me and I will create a reward for you. Be sure to check out ALL our updates.  We have images of items the space will provide free of charge, lists of events, and much more!  Also please note: this game shop is opening in the town of Middlebury no matter how much money is raised.  Donate with confidence!


My name is Scott.  I'm opening a public tabletop gaming space for Board games, card games, and tabletop games.   The spot will have a small retail store, but it is primarily to be a safe place for people of any creed, orientation, and race to come and enjoy gaming.  Retail sales will be done online.  Everything available to purchase online will also be offereed at the store.

The spot will operate as a community location.  Kids can come in after school and pull a game off the shelf to play.  Couples can come in with their children to try a game they are thinking of buying for the family.  Every weekend, a different, open to the public event will be held for youth and families.   We will offer a wide range of games.   There will be selections for every age bracket.  Monopoly might not be something you see in the store, but title like "Apples to Apples", "Settlers of Catan" and many other games you do not see in major stores.

The funding you donate will go towards permanently securing the space.  If we do this, rent will be a non-issue.  The online sales will be able to easily generate the funds to pay the quarterly property taxes, and the keep the space heated and lit. 

I have run a successful business for years.  I am familiar with the standard procedures of operating a store.  I have plenty of experience with youth of all ages, and have a solid knowlegde of gaming.

Think of it:  a place to hold a scrabble tournament.  A place for youth Magic Card Tournaments.  A dedicated space for kids to attend free painting and building classes.  A spot that teaches and employs good sportmanship, and enjoyment of one another through a medium that is, after all, just a game.

Please donate, and choose a reward.  There are different rewards for the same price block.  Scroll through all the rewards to chose one best suited to you!

Thank you,
