Library Pot | Board Game Café Richmond
Don’t believe there’s a board game café in Richmond?
Library Pot has become a niche hangout for board gamers of all kinds. Just pay a fiver cover charge per session and play for up to 6 hours – DO pass Go, and DO collect a bunch of great memories playing board games in a café in Richmond.
In a setting that looks like a kooky hostel common room, the atmosphere in Library Pot’s safe, friendly and relaxed. Fairy lights and ivy are wrapped around the banisters, while the walls are laden with games. It’s a great place to visit with a group of friends, and there’s even a “meet up” group if you want to go solo and find a gang.
There are more games there than you can shake a stick at. Which is just as well, because if there were enough to shake a stick at and you actually did that, well there’d be trouble. Seriously, there are hundreds. Ranging from short and snappy two player games, to day long strategy campaigns, construction games, logic based games, co-operative games, dexterity games and everything in between – there’s even a ball pit (for some unknown reason).
Not game-centric enough for you, Gamey Gamerson? Then get so into it that your friends start to worry about you by donning a cosplay outfit: they’re available here, or you can bring your own if you’re a fancy dress veteran. As a side note, if you describe yourself as a “fancy dress veteran” then you’ve probably already gone passed that “friends starting to worry about you” stage.
There’s a list of food and drinks (both alcoholic and not so) to fuel you for your session, but treat it as such and not much more – the food isn’t haute cuisine, but then, who cares when you’re casting magic spells on evil monsters?
NOTE: Library Pot is, like, so open. Booking recommended. For more information, click here.
