What is a Board Game Cafe?

Friend & Foe Board Game Cafe is an experience.

The perfect mixture between a hobby store and your neighborhood cafe mixed with a little late night fun.

Friend & Foe’s mission is to bring people together, build friendships and promote social activities one board game at a time!

Friend & Foe serves coffee, tea, bottled sodas, Kombucha, beer, and wine. We offer a bistro-style menu that includes sandwiches, salads, as well as some snacks.

Friend & Foe has a game library with over 600+ games and new titles added regularly.

Q: Why a $5 Cover?

The cover will help Friend & Foe bring you the best experience we can. As you can imagine games get beat up, pieces get lost, and sometimes the occasional drink spills or a table flips.

The cover helps us keep all of our games replenished and in working order so you can play without worrying!

Games also take time. The cover secures your seat for as long as you are in the cafe playing games.

Monthly and Yearly Memberships are available with plenty of perks!

Q: How long is the Cover good for?

The cover is good for as long as you can last in one sitting.
Smoke breaks, leg stretching, or running to the car are all okay, but leaving and coming back later in the day requires the $5 cover to be paid again. Absences longer than a short break, within reason, can be approved by manager. With that being said, we ask that you be mindful of how long you are occupying a table, there might be others who are waiting to enjoy a game as well.

Q: Do I have to pay the cover if I am not playing a board game?

No, if you are dropping in to grab a sandwich or a drink, study, read, or any other activity that isn't play a board game, you do not have to pay the $5 cover. With that being said, we ask that you be mindful of how long you are occupying a table, there might be others who are waiting to enjoy a game as well.

Q: What about Children?

The earlier you can teach kids about board games the better!

Children (12 and under) are free with a paying Adult.
(Library cover applies to ages 13 and above)

Q: Can I reserve a table?

All tables will be first come first serve, but we encourage you to ask if seats are open.

Q: Can I bring my own games?

Yes, but you will still be required to pay the $5 cover and you will need to check your personal game in/out.
The $5 dollar cover helps us stay open. We don’t want your games to get mixed in with ours, so we ask that you check your game in when you arrive and then check it out as you leave.

Memberships let you bring your own games without being charged the cover!

Q: Will you host events?

YES!
We will host various events such as "Learn a game" night, Family events, Game Tournaments, MeetUp events, D&D, X-Wing Miniatures much more!
