Kickstart this: Vermont’s first board game cafe

A group in Burlington want to open the state’s first board game cafe, and they’ve launched a Kickstarter to help realize their dream.

The Boardroom is planned for the Queen City as a place where people can go to check out a library of board games, and enjoy some food and a beverage while they’re at it. They explain that they’re going to put together a library of 400 games, ranging from familiar classics to hot new games. They also note that they plan to offer a wide range of classes and events.

The cafe will be located on Colchester Avenue in Burlington, near Winooski, in a recently renovated building. Funds for the campaign will go to adding to the cafe’s library, equipment for the kitchen, and furniture. They’re looking to raise $7000 in the next 29 days. Perks for backers include free game passes, memberships, and more.
