It’s tempting to think of it as Canada’s first board game cafe, but Vancouver has or had one called Wow Wow, though it doesn’t have a website, and it doesn’t answer the phone.
Actually, we have a games cafe here in Thunder Bay, Ontario – the Gamespark. They’re just about to celebrate their first anniversary.
Technically, they’re a competitor of mine (I own a FLGS), but anything that grows the hobby benefits all of us. Check them out at http://www.gamesparkcafe.com/about – see, Toronto doesn’t do everything first! :)
Any place you can relax and enjoy beer or coffee that has that many games is right up my alley. When will I find one in Chicago?! Right now I only have a couple haunts that have some good games — but odds are you need to bring your own dice.
The problem with this place is they don’t know how to treat customers. Is it because they are so busy they feel the ones in the door are most important and potential ones do not matter. I tried to make a reservation and after a month of calling I finally get a human. He tells me they cannot take my group of eight and that we should go else where. What did I hear that correct? He just said my group of eight people should go else where? Yup, that’s good business savy! Now I’m posting it. I will go else where with my group of eight, tonight and every night!!!
