GameWars launches franchise business, partners with Destructoid to party

Want a job in videogames, but suck at writing and design? How are your partying skills? 

If you (or a group of friends) are looking to turn your gaming hobby into a business, I'd like you to consider GameWars Franchise concept, run by my friend Matthew Kochman. Essentially, he promotes and hosts videogame parties to companies and families that don't want to deal with the hassle of buying, maintaining, and securing a bunch of gadgets. You can apply online right now.

The money's not bad, either. On average, he's grossing $800 for two-hour events and has seen his business triple in the last three years. To succeed as an owner, you'll need the capital for the equipment ($60k), an organized half-brain, and the toughest part: some exposure to reach people. Luckily, you're looking at it.

Destructoid is proud to announce that we're partnering with all future GameWars Franchise owners to host stupid-awesome community meetups nationwide. World domination, anyone?

You've surely seen other videogame party trucks that squish kids into a meat locker with tiny screens, but GameWars isn't about that nonsense. It's actually a compact trailer that hauls hardcore gaming equipment with large HD screens, and is capable of entertaining over 50 people per trailer. Between gigs you've got the gear to host your own tournaments to diversify your income.

If you've been a long-time Dtoid reader you know that we love to host NARPS (no apparent reason parties). Essentially, this gives a Dtoider the opportunity to make NARP'ing their day job. We like the idea because it gives our staff an excuse to party, and also get our community away from the Internet and meet in real life. We've worked together in the past hosting videogame parties at places like Florida International University and TigerDirect's gaming lounge.  

We'd love to see community members running their own territories in the future and promoting their own events, hopefully in a city near you.  To quote Matthew, "It's easy money doing something you love. There are few businesses you can start with this much capital up front, and with Destructoid's partnership we offer something nobody else does."  

I hope one of you sells your wife, kids, and kidneys tonight to join this adventure with us!

Don't be confused when the fuse is up, And you're taking a leak, Into your brother's cup. When the cup is filled, You can run and be killed, In the billion miles, Of the muscles that build. Rad... more
