Greetings Internet Traveler!
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who has supported me in my entrepreneurial efforts throughout the years. All of the support that you've given me has been a driving force in keeping me motivated despite the challenges that come my way. If you don't know me by now, my name is Anthony and I'm a gamer located on the Big Island of Hawaii in the town of Hilo.
As some of you know by now my time with Gam3Escape ended in July. While it was fun while it lasted, it was time to move on. After leaving, I was unsure how I wanted to proceed with my new knowledge of gaming and retail management. After some serious thinking, I decided that I wanted to start another venture related to the world of tabletop gaming. While brainstorming just what kind of business I wanted to start, I thought about the problems that gamer's face, especially in Hawaii. Problems associated with the stigma of tabletop gaming; problems with finding new players. How many times did people tell me about how they wanted to start playing a new game, but couldn't find the players? What about finding reliable gaming space? How do we let our geek flag fly?
All this thinking led me to the idea of creating a lifestyle brand associated with gaming; a brand that can highlight all the positive aspects of gaming in Hawaii. A brand with an emphasis on collaboration. Introducing Slow Your Roll.
Slow Your Roll will consists of two parts; content in various forms of collaboration, along with products custom-designed with the island-style gamer in mind. Whether its highlighting various gaming groups on the island, or selling island-inspired apparel to help you better express yourself, Slow Your Roll will strive to look for innovative ways to service tabletop gamers in Hawaii and abroad.
Slow Your Roll is not just myself. I've been working with gamers and artists on the island, exploring different ways to get this online business started. I'm currently looking for even more collaborators to get in on the fun.
