Board Game BBQ!

  • Wanna Play Cafe

Memorial Day BBQs have always been missing one thing: board games. Well, we've solved that problem. Introducing Wanna Play Cafe's first ever Board Game BBQ!

Tickets are $25 and will include a special Memorial Day BBQ buffet, drinks, and unlimited gaming.

In addition, when you buy your ticket you will be able to reserve your spot in one of our specially setup games. These games won't be the type normally available in the cafe, and the spots are limited depending on game size. Check the comments below for what games are available.

If you don't want to reserve a spot in a specific game, don't worry! You can still buy a ticket and join any game looking for players, or just play games from our regularly available library of over 280+ games.
