At least once a month, on a Saturday, the Cafe Games club meets up for an afternoon of boardgames and socialising, with food and wine within easy reach.
Our new city venue is the Celtic Club (Irish Club), corner of Latrobe and Queen streets in the Melbourne CBD (see map below)
- Entrance around to the right … since it’s a “club” venue, you need to sign in on arrival, and then follow the signs near the elevator.
- We can play games in large groups, or small groups, it’s all fine.
- From 12 midday to 11pm … drop in whenever you like 🙂
The Venue: The Celtic Club
At the Club, we have our own bar at which you can order food or drink.
NOTE: Food is available at lunch 12-3pm and dinner 5-9pm
Please bring Games
This new venue has no games of its own so PLEASE I heartily encourage you to bring your own boardgames – everyone should own games – at least a cheap pack of cards! (Buy some?) Best social games are ones for 4-6 players and don’t take much longer than an hour … but feel free to break those rules! Anything goes, from Pictionary, Snap, Jenga and Uno, to 500, Cluedo and Ticket-to-Ride! (our big list of boardgames) We normally play in small groups, feel free to watch or ask to join in!
New visitors are usually shocked to find that the afternoon whizzes by … we used to finish at 6pm, but people complained that was way too short, so now we go from midday to 11pm.
Pub-style, pay for your food and drink at the counter.
Gold coin donation appreciated to help cover rental.
I can highly recommend catching public transport to the event! Both Queen and Latrobe street have trams, and Latrobe street also has Melbourne Central and Flagstaff train stations mere minutes walk away!
