Gaming in Seattle

June 8, 2015 - 10:57pm
Vacations are the best time to get some quality game-time in. Nicole from The Daily Worker Placement recently went on vacation to Seattle, which has a very good gaming community. During her vacation, she checked out three of the local gaming cafes.

Card Kingdom/Cafe Mox: Card Kingdom is a retail space with gaming tables and tournament room, and it's attached to Cafe Mox, a cafe/bar with booths, tables, and a patio. Their library is behind the counter at Card Kingdom. There's no cover charge for seating or renting games, and the space is nice and cozy. They hold regular small event nights for games, D&D, miniatures, and card games. There's also a variety of food on the menu, including vegetarian/vegan selections.

Mox Boarding House has a much larger space - more retail, more cafe seating, event space, and private rental rooms. There are also a bunch of decorations - art deco and cool stuff mounted on the walls. The game walls are organized into categories, and there is plenty of room open for gaming, but the library is behind the counter like at Card Kingdom. There is a lot of variety on the menu (food and drink).


Meeple Games has a cafe space for players to sit and play games from their library for free. The library is behind the counter and is smaller than the other two, but enough to support casual gamers. There is a weekly open gaming event on Thursdays where people try games from the library or bring their own games. There's plenty of well-lit space for a large group. Meeple Games also regularly hosts events in their tournament space. The menu has a variety of food, including vegan and gluten free options. Next time you go on vacation, consider checking out Seattle and its great board gaming community! Check out Nicole's blog post to read more about her vacation.
