So we spoke about receiving our liquor license. But what’s a drink without a game to be frustrated at?
We at ‘Round the Table plan on having over 100 different ‘open’ boardgames at launch–titles that you can feel free to open up and play with your friends or family when you stop by. Many of these will be recognizable to you boardgame geeks out there, like Dixit, 7 Wonders, and Wings of War.
But there will definitely be some surprises. Our current favorite is ‘The Quiet Year’, a story-driven and rules-lite cooperative game of survival in the apocalypse.
There are easy to learn gems that will shake up your pre-conception of what a genre is; for example, ‘Friedrich’ is a 4-player war game where a team of three attempt to crush a solitary player in 1700s Europe. Instead of being a complicated mess, players are engrossed in a delicate and balanced war of maneuver using only a handful of pieces and strategizing for battles with a hand of ordinary playing cards.
So definitely come and check our library out, preferably with a few friends. And if you don’t know how to play a game and don’t want to plow through a whole rulebook, ask us. We play all of these games, and can give you a quick overview of how to play. Or we’ll have a flat-screen TV hooked up in the main room ready to stream video tutorials from the web for your convenience.
We look forward to seeing you in a few short weeks!
