A Place to Play

With a steadily changing urban jungle, our leisure spaces at home are getting smaller and smaller. What if there was somewhere you can sit down with your friends and play board games in safety and without distractions? We have gaming tables in the shop where you can set up your game and play! With free-to-play demo copies, friendly staff to teach you the games or even play along and regular game days, you may even get to play a game on launch day! All events are posted on our schedule, as well as Facebook.

 

A Wide Selection to Purchase

We try to stock something for everyone. Besides the hundreds of retail titles across dozens of publishers that we have in stock at any given time, we also have access to a distribution network with more than 2000 listed titles from which we can order. 

If you're looking for a suggestion or would like to know more about a specific title, we're always willing to help. We try to know at least a little bit about every game we sell.

Second hand games can also find a new home through our Board Game Exchange, where your can display your games for the interest of buyers and then use the proceeds to buy something new!
 

Always Something to Play

We regularly add new games to our demo cabinet, and often ask the opinion of our regulars what game we should add. Sometimes a game is added because it's popular, other times because we feel it needs more love. There's something for anyone to enjoy, from family friendly games that take a few minutes, all the way to expansive games that require several hours to complete.

Our knowledgeable staff are always at hand to help with teaching a game, be "the other player", or simply clarify a rule of an old favourite. If you want to bring your own games and play with new people, we're always willing to jump in and play with you.
We also arrange casual tournaments for popular board games and card games, often wit prizes to be won. Check out the our schedule for more information.

 

Get Rewarded for Playing Games

At every gaming event, by playing at least one thing, you'll be rewarded with a stamp on your loyalty card which can later be redeemed on purchases! It's that simple! There's no entry fee, simply play anything you're interested in.
