When we travel we have gadgets with us 24/7.

From phones to cameras to tablets to music and even DVD players (well, okay, maybe not DVD players anymore now that we have tablets that play movies).

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could reconnect with a few people over something as simple as a board game? If you’re in downtown Halifax you can do just that at a board game cafe.

Reconnect at the Board Room Game Cafe

Every year thousands of people visit the east coast of Canada to take in the beauty that is Nova Scotia. While there, they have the opportunity to visit the province’s biggest city – Halifax. Why not take a break from all that touring and enjoy some downtime at a well-appointed café near the heart of it all?

The Board Room Game Cafe is a licensed establishment that caters to anyone 19 or older (photo ID is required, regardless of age), or at certain times children are invited to join in with the adults for an afternoon session. It has a considerable collection of board games (over 500) to choose from, and one of the friendly and knowledgable staff will help you get a game started. The ambience is comfortable, and well designed for some serious (or not so serious) tabletop board game action.

Have you got game?

There is a selection of craft beers, alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, and a simple but varied menu of light food items – fitting for a cafe. You can book a table, which is recommended since the tables do fill up. When we visited it was a Sunday night and by 8:00 each of the 20 or so tables were full. It was great to see that the art of dice rolling and card turning hasn’t been lost to screen tapping.

Awesome idea for a cafe! Closest place I have seen to this, is a Speak Easy with board games in Gastown in Vancouver, but they don’t have nearly the same selection.

Maybe you could pass on the link to the article so that they can see how successful the cafe is. They might want to consider a sideline. : )

Love the idea of board game cafes. There’s one in Edmonton (where I live) and this post just makes me want to check it out.

You should check it out Alouise! We have one in Toronto also and from what i’ve heard, the tables are always booked.

Let us know how it turns out. These places are great ideas for getting people out and socializing. Loads of fun.
