Draughts Board Game Cafe


Are you ready to lose close friendships over a board game?

Well if your answer is yes, then you need to get your arse down to Draughts. This hidden gem is the first board game cafe in London and damn it’s awesome.

Step aside Monopoly, Cluedo and Cranium…we know you’re apart of the “Classic Board Game Club” but with the rows and rows of board games at Draughts, you’re sure to find some great competitors.

If you are heading there with a party of 5+ people then here are some of the games I would recommend…

  • Sheriff of Nottingham
  • Skull
  • Cash n Guns
  • Coup
  • The Resistance: Avalon

You pay £5 per player and get access to their enormous library. Also I must point out that their staff acquire a niche skill of knowing the rules of nearly every game.

They don’t take reservations during the weekend but if you rock up around 11am, you are sure to get a table.
