Board Games

Not to be confused with “bored” games

We’ve got a variety of board games that’ll entertain you and your friends. Or just you, if that’s your thing. If you’d like to make new (real) friends, you might try challenging someone to an exhilarating board game. You might also try talking to them.

Board Games Etiquette

Safety first

Flipping the board in a fit of rage can really tweak the nerves in your back. Make sure you do some stretches and other light calisthenics before you upend the game board and send tiny game pieces flying. Also, be sure to set your drink safely aside before sending any game components sailing through the air to avoid 1) spilling your drink, or 2) having game pieces land in your drink presenting a choking hazard.

Free Time

Work can wait

All board games are free to play. Just ask your bartender for the game of your choice, and return it when you’re finished. Feel free to bring your own board games, cards or dice as well!

This is my go-to bar in Cap Hill. Love it so much.

To start with, they do trivia once a month on the first Wed of the month. The questions can be hard, but luckily they offer a DFL prize if you come in dead last, so you can win even if you lose.

They have free peanuts for drunk munchies and have some board games behind the bar for people to play. There's a pool table and a juke box and more games upstairs. There's a buck hunter, a couple of pinball machines, a skeeball table/board, and two darts boards. So fun!

The one weird thing is that the ladies room uses curtains as "doors" to the stalls and sometimes drunk girls don't think and simply rip them open... lol. Nice to meet you too. But if you can get through the night without being walked in on, it's a fan-freakin-tastic place to drink.
