What is a board game cafe?

As the name suggests, a board game cafe is a place where anyone can come in to play board games and have some refreshments. What makes a board game cafe like ours special is more than just the fact that there are over 500 games available to play, with new games arriving each week. Our staff will be able to match you with a game if you don't know what you want to play, match you with other players if you're looking for people to play with, and show you how to play the game you end up choosing.

We have games from a wide range of genres, you can play classics like chess, draughts, and backgammon, well known family favourites like Game of Life, Scrabble, and Cluedo, Euro classics like Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne and Alhambra, and many, many more.
