More and more boardgame cafés are opening in the UK. One of the first, Thirsty Meeples opened in Oxford two and a half years ago, and since then, there have been a number of other boardgame cafés opening using a similar model, including the Games Hub in Edinburgh; Dice and Donuts in Preston; Counters in Cardiff; Dice in Portsmouth, and Draughts in Hackney, London.

This month, Paradice Board Games Café in Bromley, London, and The Dice Cup in Nottingham are opening. Like Dice and Donuts, The Dice Cup was the result of a successful KickStarter campaign last year. Hoping to emulate their success, fund-raising for Chance and Counters in Bristol begins on January 11th. Bristol has something of a history of speciality pubs: last year their first and very popular “cat pub” was opened, so hopefully the KickStarter project for the games café will be just as successful.
