Hey there! my name is Drew and when i was younger my mum and now business partner( Ashley) had the dining room in our home transformed in to a gaming room for me, my siblings and all our friends to hang out and game in. It was a massive hit and all our friends loved to come over and have gaming nights at our place which gave us a much better alternative to hanging about the streets/parks since the majority of the time that meant getting in to some kind of trouble.
This is where my idea came from, now that i am older i would like to open a place that offers all the people of Dundee that same experience.
The goal is to offer all gamers and like minded individuals, a place where they can play, discuss and socialise around all their favourite games on all platforms. We want to offer young people a positive alternative to hanging around the streets and hope this helps to cut down underage drinking and anti-social behaviour.
We plan to host competitions where teams can come to compete in a wide verity of games, we would like to host these competitions frequently(possibly weekly) and offer prizes to the winning teams and promote a healthy and safe environment for people of all ages and abilities to come together as one.
We also aim to provide children and adults with ADHD, O.D.D, Autism, mental health problems and various other additional needs the opportunity to come together in a safe environment where they will be made to feel welcome, included and part of a team.
We have secured a premises on Albert Street and have spent thousands so far on renovating the shop and have already bought some of the computer systems but the repairs to the shop have eaten away our small budget and this is where we need YOUR help!
We require some financial funds to finish our refurbishment and buy some PC's, consoles and other equipment that we are now struggling to afford. We are around 50% completion on the properties renovation with still a little way to go but your help could make all the difference.
We are offering some free gaming time to those who have helped and a special and personal "thank you" on our advertising pages which will include your name and/or company.
If you have any questions we will try to answer them as best we can on here or on our Facebook page :).
Thank you so much for reading and for contributing.
Get in touch, take a seat, grab a coffee....its Game ON!
