story about the business atmosphere in Nob HillOn an unassuming corner of a retail district in Albuquerque, NM is a business with paper covering the windows. A single banner is displayed in the window that shows a Meeple, a plus sign, a cup of coffee, an equal sign, and two question marks.

I think we all know where this is going.

The Empire Board Game Library will (hopefully) open this May. The Albuquerque Journal reports that the shop will feature more than 600 games from Monopoly to “games you’ve never heard of,” that can be rented while patrons sip their hot beverages.

Owner Rory Veronda says customers can purchase a game pass, which will allow them to rent games from the huge library. The shop will also sell board games.

In addition to coffee, you’ll be able to get sodas and snacks to supply your game fuel needs.

The board game café market is really taking off. Numerous cafes are popping up in Canada, like The Hexagon Board Game Cafe in Edmonton, and Snakes & Lattes in Toronto.

Maryland has a café called Board and Brew. Bangalore has one named Brewhaha. Denver has a kosher-approved version called Gathering Grounds.

There are dozens more around the globe. There may even already be one in your neighborhood.
