What is a board game cafe?
A board game cafe is a place you can go alone or with friends to enjoy good coffee, tea, beer or wine and games. We no longer serve food in house but you are welcome to bring your own or order in! Ask us about our local favorites :)
I've never been to a board game cafe before, how does it work?
If you'd like to play games, there is a $10 gaming fee to stay and play for as long as you want. There are no in and out privileges.
The cost of drinks and snacks are not included.
Can I play for a bit, leave, and then come back?
There are no in and out privileges. If you need to step out for some fresh air, that's OK.
Why do I need to pay a fee?
This fee helps us cover the cost of damages and maintenance to our collection of books and games.
What if I don't want to play a game?
No problem! If you are only purchasing coffee you do not need to pay the $10 gaming fee. However, if we begin to fill up we may ask you to give up your table for those playing games.
Do kids pay the $10 gaming fee?
Children ages 6 and under play for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
All children must be supervised while playing with the games.
What games do you have?
Oh boy, …a lot! We keep a comprehensive list of our available games here on Board Game Geek. We are continually adding to our collection, so check back often. Don't see something you love to play? We love suggestions! Use this form to suggest a game we don't have or an upcoming Kickstarter.
Do you have WIFI?
Absolutely! While many board game cafes stress the importance of unplugging, we recognize the importance of digital connection. Please enjoy the free Wifi and let us know if you have any trouble connecting.
Do you sell board games?
Yes we do! Check out the products in the store menu at the top of the site or stop in on a weekend :)
Can we bring in our games to play?
Yes, be sure to check-in and let us know, so we don't confuse your game with one of ours. The $10 gaming fee does not apply when you bring in your own games to play.
Can we bring in snacks and drinks?
Yes, we do allow outside food and drink!
I'd love to host a special event at your cafe, can I do that?
Yes! We host private and corporate events. You can fill out an information form here, and we will be in touch shortly.
Can you teach my friends and me how to play a game?
Yes, we have scheduled game clinics and a large community of players eager to help out newcomers. Join our Discord server to start meeting your new friends.
Do you accept board game donations?
Yes! We accept donations of board games, no matter the condition. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
