    Super friendly staff! Loved the chocolate mint tea and free wifi. For just $5 per person, you can borrow as many games as you want and hang out for as long as you want - open 'til midnight!

    Get an all day pass to play games like Cards Against Humanity, Settlers of Catan, and Magic: The Gathering. The café serves "college food" like pizza bites and pigs in a blanket, and 20 craft beers. Read more

    Great place to unwind and play some board games with friends ($5 cover charge per person). Their mozzarepas are delicious, and they also have free wifi and accept the Cups app.

    This place is great. Play some board games you’ve never heard of, eat some chicken nuggets and bagel bites, and have a good time! If the wait is long, just grab a coffee at Irving next door.

    Come early! This place gets packed fast and you can stay as long as you want. $5 a person, pretty cheap and they have some games that are two-player if you're coming with a date or a friend.

    Large selection of games to play and/or purchase. Make a reservation to secure a spot as space is limited. Cold brew is tasty, as is the pigs in blankets.

    Increasingly becoming one of my favorite spots in the whole city to just #chill. There's no alcohol unfortunately, but the snacks and friendly atmosphere should tide over your inner lush for a night.

    The search for free wi-fi is no game to us! The Uncommons' selection of board games is unrivaled, and a perfect location to set up shop for a game of Settlers of Catan.

    $5 per player, unlimited time. Maximum of 3 alcoholic beverage allowed. Tables get occupied very easily so arrive early. They have a huge variety of odd board/card games. A judgement-free zone.

    Every game, plus the expansions. Zero reasons to not absolutely love this place! Plus, the guy next to me is effortlessly solving a rubiks cube while board gaming. Meta, indeed.

    If your friends want to play "Betrayal at House on the Hill", bash them on their heads with the Taboo buzzer until they come to their senses.
