With your support, we can finance the game collection for DuBischDra, the first board game café in Switzerland. We plan to open the café mid-year in the FOGO area next to the train station Altstetten. The area is easily accessible by train and tram from Zurich and surrounding areas. In our café you can play all day long, if you like. Our game gurus help you choose the best games and explain the rules too. We charge a one-time cover charge when playing games.

Who remembers all these rainy weekends, playing games with friends and family? During class- or boy scout camp playing one game of Monopoly all day long or playing cards all night long.

As you have seen in our video, we would like to create a place where these treasured memories can be relived, and new ones made. In Zurich's (and Switzerland's) first board game café you can choose from more than 4000 available board and card games to play. Our food and beverage offer includes coffee and sweets but also snacks, salads and alcoholic beverages.

We have found the perfect place for our café, the FOGO area in Altstetten. In collaboration with our partners "QuartierPOT", "Zum guten Heinrich", "BachserMärt" and the "Gut Rheinau" we are creating a unique gastronomical offering - social, healthy and environmentally friendly.

Planned opening is mid of the year (as long everything works out with the interior construction) in the FOGO area at the Vulkanplatz, in Altstetten. The area is between the highway exit 3 and the train station in Altstetten. You can also reach us by tram (line 4 and 6) and bus (304, 307, 308 and 485).

30'000.- are for the huge game collection that is offered to us by the "Rien ne vas Plus" owner Beat Liechti and the custom-made shelves to store them at the café.

If you like to play games or love our idea, we would be very happy if you chose to support us. You can do that financially here on "Crowdify", or by sharing our project and spreading the word with other like-minded people.

Everyone who supports us financially has the opportunity to choose one of the rewards that we have created especially for this campaign. We hope that there is something for everyone. In case you would have some feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are looking forward to engaging with you. We wish you lots of fun browsing through our offers.
As you must have realized by now, we are extremely passionate about DuBischDra and we have a lot more ideas what to offer to you. To be able to offer all these we would need some additional funds. We are thinking about a real board game table, offering games to buy from the start and more things to come.

For this, we have set stretch goals to unlock these ideas together. This means for YOU, dear supporter, that you have the chance to profit twice. First you will get the additional features in the café, and secondly, by reaching each goal every supporter here will get an additional reward on top! So. What are you waiting for? Let everyone know who might be interested.

If we reach 45'000.-, we will upgrade our "Stammtisch" to a real board game table from one of the well-known manufacturers like "Rathskellers" or "GeekNSon". Once this goal has been reached everyone, who at least boosted us with 15.- will get an additional free entry to DuBischDra, wohoooo!

Selling games is one of the top points on our to-do list, unfortunately we do not yet have the funds necessary. When we reach 60'000.- this would change, and we will offer games to buy. Something that is important to us is use of environmentally friendly materials. Therefore, we will offer all of you who boosted us with at least 30.- one of our hand printed cloth bags, that we will also use for retailing.

Since I can remember I am playing games. Be it with my family or in school or boy scout camp. 16 years ago me and some friends founded a clubroom where we play board games on a regular basis. There the idea for DuBischDra was borne.

As an economist I am handling the business part of DuBischDra. In those rare occasion where I am not playing games you can find me in the kitchen, baking, eating or probably both.

Three years ago I visited Snakes & Lattes, Toronto's most famous board game café. Ever since I wanted to create a place like it and now I have the chance to be part of DuBischDra, the first board game café in Zurich.

In addition to cycling and eating chocolate I love to play board games with friends.
