    What game are they playing at 1:24?

    Reykjavík needs one. It's a small city with abput 200k people (counting suburbs), but we have two game stores that have both recently relocated to a larger place. We also have two universities and a city full of young people.

    Do you think that a gaming café could thrive if the store part of it was a branch from another flgs?

    Thanks for the video, it was very informative. I live in a small town (Camrose,AB) of about 22k. We have a predominate senior population, and as such there is nothing for the youth to do in town other than go to bars/movie theatre. We do have a university and many surrounding communities and an anime/comic store that has been around for quite some time. Do you think a board game cafe would be an untapped resource here?

  • @BoBondi The Kingswood by Toronto game designer Alan Wong! It hasn't been released yet - that footage is actually from our most recent Game Designers Night. You can find The Kingswood on Kickstarter if you're interested, and it's actually the subject of the next video we're releasing!

    I'm totally not qualified to answer either of the other questions here, but I'm glad you all enjoyed the video!

    It sounds like more market research is warranted. The population is quite small, but if the youth have the free time and the disposable income, it could be worth doing. It depends on whether the locals are into games.
    I'd recommend starting by using a community centre or library space to try holding a monthly game night and see if it gets any traction.

    Hi guys! This is awesome! I'm in the very early planning stages to open a gaming cafe in Chicago/Evanston! There is nothing like it here, and there's a HUGE gamer population! Are there any tips you can offer, or resources? It's hard to know where to begin. Do I start by putting together a game store or a cafe? I'm super excited, but also terrified, but I really feel a gaming cafe would do well here!
