Excellent approach towards introducing the bigger world of board games to newcomers. Proprietors are very friendly and down-to-earth, and the board gaming crowd are usually friendly and helpful as well. Competitive prices and wide range of availability makes this an easy choice as a place to shop.

Lately I got to know a bunch of really wonderful guys, the Boardgamecafe guys, also known as the OTK gang. They are like the real life version of Boardgamegeek.”
