    Richmond, VA is more than ready for a great location to play pinball. We just need a little help from our friends and the dream will become reality!

    We've got an event at a local brewery this weekend to help kick things into high gear. We definitely appreciate any and all support from the pinball community to help us on our mission to spread the joy of pinball!

    have you got a picture of the shirt that will be available? that might encourage people from further away to support the cause especially if a cool design, I know I will.

    also maybe sneak in a custom flipper bat key ring etc for another level - enough to cover the cost but also help those from further away to get something unique as most of the rewards are for people that live in the area. I can design it for free and send you the file to get the parts from shapeways.

    and you are not offering shirt to be shipped outside the US, maybe just allow a extra small reasonable fee to cover overseas.

    Swigs, that is a good idea. We are new to Kickstarters and we should have designed the t-shirt and pinball swag ahead of time. We will work on this weekend. Unfortunately none of us have design experience

    Thanks Bill! Looks like you had a somewhat tough crowd on your original thread, not unlike our reddit thread Great to see you guys made it. I think this is going to be a great place for us pinheads and the rest of the community as well.

    Richmond pinball collective is opening its doors May 15. Check out details at richmondpinballcollective.org

    $20 a month membership? WOW that is dirt cheap. Even if it's only 15 or so hours a week they are available. I know you said non-profit but are you really using this as a way to launder money? Ha. I would think it's going to be hard to keep your 25 machines in top shape at that price point. You have some really expensive titles in their too. Best of luck!

    #16 3 years ago

    Games are donated by our members. Dues pay for rent and game maintenance. We nees about 60-70 members at that price to stay afloat. We will see how it goes!

    Very cool. I would love something like this close to me.

    Seems like your cost are quite low. Does one of your members own the building?
