So really, how does it work?
To play games, first check in and order at the counter. We charge a $5 per person for up to 4 hours with a maximum of 4 per table and that gets you access to about 300 games from our library. Once you've paid we'll set you up with a table and you can choose a game from our library to start playing—please only grab one game at a time and return them to the counter to be cleaned and quarantined. When you can, please wear a mask and keep your distance from other groups. Drinks and snacks can be ordered at the counter and we'll bring them over to you so you can get back to your game.
Can I stop in for a drink and study or do a little work?
Sure thing! When the cafe is not otherwise busy if you'd like to buy a drink and hang out without playing any games - ours or yours - we'll waive the library fee.
Is it okay to leave and come back later?
Short of a small break to step outside or answer a call, customers who leave for an extended time will need to pay the library fee again when they return.
What games do you have?
Many! Currently there’s about 300 games in the library from old favorites to new releases, and we're still growing. Here's a list of our current collection.
Can you recommend games to play or teach me how to play?
Yes, as long as we’re not swamped, our staff know how to play many of the games in the library and will be happy to help you get started with recommendations or a rules overview. At this time, we are limiting our contact more than normal so can only teach simpler games.
Can I bring my own game?
You are absolutely welcome to bring your own games, however the library fee still applies.
What about miniatures games?
Unfortunately, at this time we do not have the table space or capacity to accommodate miniatures games.
Can I bring my own food and drink?
No, we don’t allow outside food and drink in our gaming area. We're more of that after-dinner / before-dinner kind of place.
Do you sell games?
Of course! We're primarily a retail shop and stock a wide variety of board games, card games, Magic: the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, miniatures, dice, hobby supplies, puzzles, and traditional games. If we don't have what you are looking for we can often special order it for you, just ask.
Do you have events?
To maintain safe social distancing we are not currently offering any organized events. Please check our Facebook page for any updates.
Can I make a reservation or host a private event in your space?
No, we don’t currently take reservations nor do we host private events. We're a small shop with limited resources and we want to keep the space as open as possible so people can drop in for a game anytime.
Can I bring a large group in to play games?
Because seating is limited, we cannot currently host a group larger than 4 people.
Do you accept game donations?
Yes, feel free to drop off unwanted games during business hours. We’ll look them over and decide whether to add them to our game library or donate them onwards.
Are you wheelchair accessible?
Absolutely. There are disabled parking spaces right outside, no steps to navigate, and our bathroom is ADA compliant.
