Good Game Cafe, a venue serving up snacks, drinks, and virtual reality gaming equipment, could one day open in Kenmore Square if owner Nick Lee successfully raises funds for it. (He's currently running both a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $25,000 and an IndieGoGo campaign with a goal of $50,000.) The Boston Business Journal reports on the proposed cafe, a product of Lee's time spent living in parts of Asia, where gaming cafes are more common.

He hopes to open Good Game Cafe by the end of the year, preferably near a college — ideally in Kenmore. It would have 25-50 PC gaming stations and 6-20 virtual reality stations (OMNI and Oculus Rift technology), and there would be various weekly events and social gatherings. The crowd-funding campaigns end in mid-August.
