The Membership Fee
We just wanted to address some concerns about the daily membership fee. It's sort of like if you go to a movie, you are paying for the experience of watching that movie in a theater. Sure you could go buy the movie soon enough, but it's much more fun to go to the theater to see it. A weird way to think about it but it helps make sense of the membership charges. We want you to have a complete experience when you come to the cafe to play a game.
Remember also that you don't have to pay if you aren't playing, and for kids under 13 it's always free to play.
We will be constantly evaluating and reevaluating how to charge the membership fees as we go. We really have to see how the cafe fares in the first few months. We want to make sure we can make enough money to stay open so everyone can enjoy the games for years to come!
Thanks all and can't wait to see you at the cafe!
