Where we are now...
Right now Shuffles has been hosting various events in Tulsa for over a year. For our events we bring our traveling library of over 100 games, raffle prizes, and game navigators; all this, at no cost to our community. In the beginning, most of our events had around 15-20 gamers in attendance, but as the word got out about our project we have now grown to an attendance of over 100.
These pop-up events were exactly what we needed to prove to us that Tulsa is wanting a space like ours! Hosting the events have also allowed us to already meet people like you and be able to get some great feedback from our community leading up to our opening.
We couldn't have come this far if it wasn't for the amazing people who have come out and supported us and for the businesses that let us host our event in their spaces!
We anticipate opening in late May and could not be more excited. Fransen Furniture has finished the fabrication of all of the built-in fixtures, including custom booths and couch, full bar and retail counter and all retail shelving. We will be fabricating custom chairs and tables over the next month. Key Construction has been attacking all fronts with a very complicated construction package and we look forward to completion and inspections. We currently have all the interior walls defined, all of the plumbing rough-in complete, 90% of electrical rough-in complete, HVAC is completely roughed-in and drywall is being mudded and taped as we speak. The gamers from the Shuffles Brain Trust have been helping me pull all the cable for data, audio, video and cameras with much help and guidance from Kazar. We work on some aspect of this project every day and anticipate this will only increase as we get closer to opening, when we will become one with Shuffles!
