FAQ

What is a board game cafe?

A welcoming cafe that serves food and drink, where customers have access to a large board game library to play at their leisure. Staff are available to recommend games as well as teach you how to play them.

How does this work?

When you get here our staff will sign you in and seat you at a table.

Then head to the black shelves and pick out a game or ask our staff for a recommendation.

Everything you order goes on a tab, including the $10 / person / day playing fee, and you pay at the end.

Kids under 12 are half price.

Come in and play before 4pm on regular weekdays to also enjoy half price entry.
