Vigilante’s Game Library and Access Policy

The core of the Vigilante experience is seamlessly combining bar and board game culture. There are many things that set us apart from other gaming establishments: our full kitchen, hot food menu, full service retinue, and we’ve talked extensively about our custom furniture and fixtures. Today we would like to discuss our board game library.

Unlike being at a hobby gaming store, our game collection is not a demo wall where we hope you will experiment and find a game to purchase. Rather, our game collection is an upgraded library, maintained for a premium experience, with full menu and staff support. This library of games is a service unto itself; we believe our patrons will prize access to a large, growing body of games.

When Vigilante opens, we will stock 100 -150 titles. This list comes from: our favorites, y’all’s requests, data pulled from Board Game Geek and recommendations by Dragon’s Lair. You can see our proposed list below! Secret Society members will also have the opportunity to vote on monthly additions to the collection.

Gone are the days where you google random titles on the demo wall to make a selection. We are providing digital menus on tablets. This menu will be organized via tags to aid in your selection, including: number of players, play time, ease of learning, online rating, laugh out loud, best after a beverage, destroys friendships, and more. Like purchasing food or drink at a restaurant, you’ll order your game from your server. The digital menu experience, paired with our staff’s expertise, will quickly pair you with the ideal game for your evening.

We know your social time at a bar is precious. We also know that setting up a game can be a chore. As such, we are repackaging games into custom wooden boxes and organizing pieces into containers. The boxes will protect the game and be less prone to falling apart after prolonged use than retail packaging. Reorganizing the games will ease setup: pieces will be organized by player and function. We will also be using jewel cases, card sleeves and other components to protect games so you don’t have to worry damaging them during play.

Reorganizing helps us track missing pieces and damaged titles. We acknowledge that some pieces inevitably will disappear into the aether and that sometimes there’s no avoiding a spilt drink. While we ask you respect our library, Vigilante will cover the cost of damaged games.

Finally, our library focuses on high-quality versions of games as well as multiple copies of popular titles. Cards Against Humanity is popular, so our goal is to have several copies of the most extensive version available for your use. Chess is an eternal classic, therefore our Chess set is a high quality, tournament standard set.

The Vigilante library is a superior experience  to retail demo walls: digital menu, staff support, monthly additions, reorganized packaging, constantly replaced damaged parts and copies, quality editions, and protective casings set us apart. We are also aware that our patrons plan on staying at Vigilante for 2-3 hours per stay: twice the industry average in restaurants. For us to recoup this expense and fund the library we are following in the footsteps of other game-oriented food and beverage establishments across the country by implementing a cost to library access.

 

Library Access

How will access work? We designed a system based on our surveys and your feedback:

  1. Welcome to Vigilante! You’ll be seated by our staff based on the size of your group and what kind of table your game will require
  2. Ready to order? Push the Accio Server button and our staff will take your food and drink requests
  3. We’ll give you a tablet to search our library menu. Our staff can also make recommendations if you wish!
  4. Library Access costs $5 per person playing:
    • Want to switch games? Enjoy unlimited access to our library until close
    • Not sure how long you want to stay? No problem: there’s no hourly limit. We don’t want you rushing to save a buck paying an hourly fee
    • Don’t want to play a game? No worries: this is not a cover charge or table fee
    • Want to bring your own game? No problem: bring outside games at no cost and enjoy our custom tables and food & drink menu
    • Switching tables? Your Access follows you around the restaurant
  5. Finished playing? We ask that your table reorganize and pick up the game when you are finished, but for a $5 reshelving fee we will take care of it for you!
  6. If you’re interested in purchasing a full game from Vigilante, we will connect you with our Retail Partner, Dragon’s Lair, to fulfill your order
  7. Ready to go? Split your your tab however you choose!

 

Games are the heart and soul of Vigilante. We’re proud to be offering an experience above and beyond any other establishment we’ve encountered across the country. In a later post, we will be exploring exactly how Secret Society membership will interact with the Game Library. In the meantime, enjoy browsing our list and share this update! This is our FINAL evening of Kickstarter!
