Hawaii’s first board game lounge – Slow your Roll Hilo

We love the boardgame and tabletop community. Here’s a worthwhile Kickstarter project to back – Hawaii’s first ever board game lounge! Planned for downtown Hilo on the Big Island, Hawaii, Slow your Roll was founded in September 2018 as an online gaming store.

Slow Your Roll Hilo

The goal of the new lounge is to “elevate the gaming experience for tabletop hobby players in Hawaii.” The team plans on hosting many different types of events; themed board game nights, card game tournaments and game creator meetups among other types of events.

The project has $2,040 pledged of its $3,000 goal with only 14 days to go at time of writing this post.

Slow Your Roll’s founder is Anthony Vizzone, an avid gamer in the Hilo gaming community. The lounge will feature island-inspired gaming apparel, along with offering a vast collection of collectibles from games such as Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, YuGiOh and Force of Will on TCGPlayer. 

The game lounge will be available for players to free play anything from our growing game library. They plant to have staff on hand to help learn how to play and discover your next favorite board game.


The lounge plans to offer monthly memberships, and if you support on Kickstarter while the campaign is active, you get access to a Kickstarter-only rate.
