Ten-Second Takeaway

Get ready for some friendship-threatening intense board-game sessions downed with awesome coffee at these cafes.

BogglinGames

Say hello to Kolkata’s first true board game café, BogglinGames, which has over 200 board games {and counting!} from all over the world. Spend hours turning friends into foes with their piles of board games which include games based on Lord Of The Rings and Game Of Thrones {cue fangirl/fanboy moment!}. The super helpful owner, Kirti Rathi Banerjee, will break down the rules for you if you need help.

8th Day Café and Bakery

This adorable corner-side café is a haven for board-game lovers. Sit for hours {seriously, no one will ever ask you to leave!} over their ‘best in the city’ freshly-brewed coffee and squabble over property in Monopoly Deal or lose yourself in the world of Catan. The high wooden table is perfect for a big group, an arm’s reach away from the board games and big enough for everyone to huddle around the board! You don’t want to miss out on their milkshakes either, the newest addition to the menu.

Bikers Café

Apart from the regular board games {they have all the classics including Battleship and Scrabble}, Bikers Café serves up some cool décor, a Harley Davidson you can take pictures with, and an air hockey and a foozball table. There’s usually a crowd around the two tables so go during the day to get a shot at playing. They also have a bunch of simple games that are perfect for the kids.

Smash Street

Laser tag, foosball, darts, selfie booth, and piles of board games – this cool café has it all. You have to pay an additional fee for everything but the darts and the board games. Go for a quick game of Jenga {they have a Truth or Dare version!}, Uno or Mastermind or a more intense session of Monopoly, Life or Stock Exchange. For the kids, they have Hungry Hippos {it’s as fun as it sounds!} or the friendship-changing game of Taboo! We also love the AstroTurf surface which makes ‘gaming’ so much more real.

Hoppipola

What’s better than playing Jenga with the squad? Tipsy giant jenga with the squad! Hoppipola has tons of fun board games but their biggest attraction is the giant jenga set that’s usually stacked up at the entrance. Many a drunken night has been spent knocking over the wooden tiles and laughing till you can’t breathe anymore. Don’t miss out on the crazy deals and steals on the booze Hoppi has to make your fun night even hoppier!
