Hi! We're proud to announce a new board game cafe, coming soon to NYC.

The Uncommons (http://www.uncommonsnyc.com) is aiming to open next month near NYU in Greenwich Village, downtown Manhattan. As we posted about in the Northeast forum (http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1046960/new-board-game-cafe-...), we're hoping to bring a new generation of gamers (and games) into the former Village Chess Shop space. And we're well on the way to finishing up construction.



In the meantime, we've launched a Kickstarter to help gauge interest in memberships (and mini-donuts). We've been running for 5 days and are already more than 25% funded. Check it out at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460605990/the-uncommons...

And definitely let me know if I can answer any questions, either via email or PM here.

Thanks,
Greg - The Uncommons NYC

That's really awesome to hear. Good luck with the store! It will be really nice to have a place near my work to hang out and play some games.

Awesome! I'm down there all the time for work, so it'll be easy to stop by and play a game or two.

I think we need a DC / NOVA branch, though the density of Meet Ups here could make financial success very challenging.

Do you mean that a lack of meetups down that way points to not enough interested gamers in the area?

On the contrary, between the periodical convention if you're willing to trek out up to 1 hours (without traffic), Games Club Of Maryland, and the various board gaming Meetups in the northern Virginia area, there's a decent chance that this place may not get sufficient foot traffic nor visitors if they can already play games more closer or conveniently.

OTOH, if location can create come convenience or fill some local need, that could pay off. However, I wouldn't know where it should go... I never had much of this sort of business knack.

Our Kickstarter has reached over $2500 in under a week, more than a third of our goal! Thanks to all who have donated so far!
